This new live action version is brought to life by Yeon Sang-ho, director and screenwriter of “Zombie Station” (Train To Busan) and stars Koo Kyo-hwan, Jeon So-nee and Jung Hyun Lee. Actors who with their performances promise us to feel again that same psychological suspense, mystery and excitement as the first time we saw back in 2014, its anime adaptation.
