Amid busy and indifferent passers-by, a rough-looking homeless man with a bleeding neck-wound finds refuge in bustling Seoul Station. Ignored by everyone, the weary vagabond, who seems to be bitten by something, slowly succumbs to his lethal trauma and dies, only to come back as a ravenous reanimated corpse, attacking and spreading his virulent disease. Now, against the backdrop of a sudden zombie outbreak, three lucky survivors--the teenager runaway, Hye-Sun; her layabout boyfriend, Ki-woong, and her desperate father, Suk-gyu--fight tooth-and-nail to reunite. But, this is only the first night of the unforeseen epidemic, and all hope seems lost. Are the walking dead the only monsters? Written by Nick Riganas

User Reviews

They Bow a Lot!
3 April 2020 | by Impartial-CriticSee all my reviews

Seoul Station can be seen as a standalone vision for the zombie apocalypse genre or a decent start of a franchise, focusing on a random girl without any solid back story and asking the audience to care about her is quite daring, Hye Sun is a runaway girl who's going through financial problems and living with an abusive boyfriend, as if things can't get worse she gets dumped by her boyfriend and thrown in the streets the night the zombie virus breaks lose, the film depicts her survival story from the beginning to the end.

The animation is acceptable in its quality although I felt the character design as well as the flow of animation could've been much better. The plot story is fine yet a bit dragging at moments with some unrealistic stupid actions from the protagonist but having a twisted and unpredictable ending was a satisfying enough to pull the whole thing together.
