YesAsia Editorial Description

Animation filmmaker Yeon Sang Ho unleashes the zombie virus in Seoul Station, the animated prequel to his box-office sensation Train to Busan. Unveiling the initial zombie outbreak that leads to the catastrophe in the live-action film, the harrowing animated horror criticizes an impotent government and different social problems. Voiced by Ryu Seung Ryong, Shim Eun Kyung and Lee Joon, the animation follows a father's search for his missing daughter during a zombie outbreak. Seoul Station was screened at the 2016 Edinburgh Film Festival and received the Silver Raven at the 34th Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.

Seok Kyu (Ryu Seung Ryong) desperately searches for his runaway daughter Hye Sun (Shim Eun Kyung), who has become a prostitute and is now living with her feckless boyfriend Ki Woong (Lee Joon). Just before his reunion with Hye Sun, a zombie apocalypse breaks out at nearby Seoul Station, where a homeless man infected with the virus starts attacking the others. The trio struggle to survive in the undead cannibal epidemic but find themselves up against not only zombies but also armed soldiers and barricades blocking them from safety.

This edition comes with special features including commentary and deleted scenes.

■ <부산행>만큼 강렬한 극 전개
해외 영화제에서 극찬한 완벽한 작품성의 애니메이션

애니메이션 영화 <서울역>은 강렬한 서스펜스, 극한의 전개, 예측불허의 결말로 이미 해외 영화제에서 좋은 평가를 받았다.
<서울역>은 지난 3월 28일 개최한 제 34회 브뤼셀 국제 판타스틱 영화제에서 실버 크로우상을 수상하는 쾌거를 거뒀다. 영화제 측은 “영화 <서울역>은 날카로운 사회비판, 높은 완성도, 그리고 훌륭한 각본을 겸비한 놀라운 작품”이라고 밝히며 영화의 작품성을 특별히 언급했다. 더불어 심사위원 일동이 영화 <서울역>에 이 특별한 상을 수여하는 데 빠른 결정을 내렸다고 밝힌 바 있다.

이와 함께 지난 6월에 개최한 앙시 국제 애니메이션 영화제에서는 “<서울역>은 앙시 애니메이션 영화제에서 높은 퀄리티를 보여준 작품!”, “<서울역>은 영리하고 재미있는 애니메이션이며, 많은 관객들에게 보여져야 하는 영화!”, “연상호 감독의 뛰어난 연출, 스릴 넘치는 리듬감, 날카로운 시나리오가 이 작품의 퀄리티를 높였다!” 등 영화 속 긴장감 넘치는 스토리에 대한 호평이 이어졌다. 또한 “<서울역>은 입체적인 영화로, 다양한 측면에서 즐길 거리가 있다. 연상호 감독의 뛰어난 연출, 스릴 넘치는 리듬감, 날카로운 시나리오는 이 작품의 퀄리티를 더욱 높여준다. 다소 적은 예산으로 만들어졌지만, 할리우드의 어떤 영화에 비해도 뒤쳐지지 않으며 애니메이션이 다룰 수 있는 내용의 범위를 과감히 확장시키며 새로운 길을 제시하기도 한다”며 모든 것이 완벽하게 조화된 영화에 대한 높은 만족감을 보여줬다.

몬트리올 판타지아 국제 애니메이션 영화제 측에서는 “관객을 매료시키면서 현대에 대한 메시지로 숨이 멎을 만큼 강력한 작품!”이라고 평했으며 시체스 국제 판타스틱 영화제 부집행위원장 마이크 호스텐쉬는 “날카로운 비주얼을 통해 거부할 수 없는 매력을 선보이는 작품!”이라고 평가했다.

Professional Review of "Seoul Station (DVD) (Korea Version)"

August 2, 2017

Having made a name for himself as the leading voice in Korean adult animation with his blistering 2011 debut The King of Pigs and his 2013 follow-up The Fake, the award-winning Yeon Sang-ho returns with Seoul Station. This time around, Yeon marries the kind of biting social criticism that characterises his works with horror genre thrills, following a zombie outbreak in Seoul that starts with the homeless and marginalised living on the streets and under the city's station.

After opening with the death of a homeless man from a mysterious bloody bite wound, the film focuses on Hye Sun (Shim Eun-kyung, Hansel and Gretel), a young runaway prostitute living with her useless boyfriend Ki Woong (Lee Joon, TV star and former member of KPOP group MBLAQ) who keeps trying to pimp her out to make money to cover their rent. After another argument Hye Sun wanders the streets, and unfortunately finds herself caught up in the middle of an epidemic whose victims rise from the dead with a taste for human flesh, having to take shelter with a group of homeless people on the run from the ghouls. Meanwhile, Ki Woong runs into Hye Sun's father (Ryoo Seung-ryong, The Piper) who is out looking for her after receiving a tipoff from a friend, and the two desperately try to track her down as the city falls into chaos.

As with his previous films, Seoul Station sees social criticism at the forefront of Yeon Sang-ho’s mind, and though the animation is a 28 Days Later style urban zombie thriller, right from the start it's clear that there's a lot more going on. By focusing on the homeless and the ways in which they and other fringe-dwellers who have dropped out or been forced out by the system are discriminated against, rather than the usual good-looking faux-outcasts, the film has a very different feel – having a prostitute and a wretched would-be pimp as two of the main characters is certainly a statement of intent. Evoking metaphor by way of George A. Romero, Yeon's script takes a very bleak and accusatory look at Korean society, with precious little in the way of hope, and manages to do so while sidestepping many of the usual clichés, giving its themes a freshness and cutting edge, not to mention an air of anger.

This boosts what is essentially a familiar and straightforward zombie outbreak narrative, and the story does recall other recent films of its kind, with several scenes and set pieces likely to be recognisable to fans of the form. Whilst lacking in originality on this score, the film is tight, tense and fast-moving, and Yeon does manage to work in a few genuine shocks and surprises along the way, in particular with regards to his pleasingly ruthless approach to the brutal killing off of sympathetic characters. As the film progresses it becomes obvious that no one is safe, and this adds a welcome element of danger which really pays off during the final act.

As with The King of Pigs and The Fake, Yeon's style here has a rough, almost awkward look that takes a bit of time to get used to, though once the viewer is attuned it proves very effective indeed, giving the film the kind of atmospheric and grounded feel not usually seen in animation. This is to a large extent crucial to the film's success, ensuring that it retains a grittiness throughout and that it avoids ever becoming cartoonish or over the top in a way which would undermine its themes and social aims. It also helps to increase the impact of the film's gore scenes, of which it has many, Yeon going all-out with throwing in the kind of flesh eating and mauling that genre fans expect. The film definitely does work very well on this more straightforward level as well, featuring plenty of action and gruesome carnage, more than earning its stripes as a zombie flick.

Seoul Station is another great offering from Yeon Sang-ho, and though it appears the director is moving on from animation and into live action features, he has unquestionably made his mark on the form. Successful both as a dark piece of social commentary and a horror thriller, the film deserves to find an audience outside the animation crowd, and is an accomplished and exciting hour and a half of genre cinema in its own right.

December 8, 2016

People are scarier than zombies
With Train to Busan, arthouse animation darling Yeon Sang Ho proved resoundingly that not only is he perfectly capable of directing mainstream and live-action cinema, he's almost too good at hitting all the required action and emotional notes for commercial success. Meanwhile, Seoul Station, the animated companion piece to Train to Busan, still bears all the bleak, incisive markers that make it seem so unlikely that Yeon could be a ten-million-admissions blockbuster director.

Made before Train to Busan but released after, Seoul Station depicts the beginning of the zombie virus outbreak. While Train is bright, glossy and attractive even as it's hurling full speed into gory zombie apocalypse, Seoul Station continues the tone and aesthetic of Yeon's The King of Pigs and Fake – that being dark, stark and unpleasant.

The film's ground zero is Seoul Station where an infected homeless man left for dead transforms into a zombie and triggers the epidemic. Wandering the streets nearby is a runaway teenage prostitute who just had a fight with her no-good boyfriend. The girl's father rolls into town in search of her, and locates the boyfriend as the zombie virus spreads rapidly. The girl, the sniveling boyfriend and the commanding father then race through the city fighting for survival and trying to find each other. As a zombie horror, Seoul Station unleashes the expected undead mob and gruesome violence, but it reserves the most chilling horrors for when the protagonists finally find the safe zone and each other.

Like in The King of Pigs and Fake, Yeon presents a searingly critical vision of society and humanity in Seoul Station, using brutish violence and grim caricatures to expose the worst retrogressions of people and institutions. And in this deeply unsettling animated apocalypse, there's no Gong Yoo to save the day, no goodness to redeem. Train to Busan and Seoul Station may be about the same zombie outbreak, but the latter is far more horrifying.
