Yeon Sang-ho | South Korea | 2015 | 92 minIn the Korean zombie horror feature Seoul Station, this year’s Korean Focus meets with Anifilm’s traditional midnight animation. The film tells a dramatic story full of suspense and zombies. The story begins with a young prostitute Hye-sun and her boyfriend Ki-woong. They are trying to hide from her former pimp but one night, after a big argument, Ki-woong breaks up with her. All of a sudden Hye-sun’s father appears and wants Ki-woong to help him find her. In the meantime, an older homeless man with a bite on his neck roams the Seoul Station. With the exception of one unfortunate man, no one notices him and before his friend brings help, the injured man is gone. And so begins a night full of chaos, fear, desperation and very fast zombies dashing through the streets and spreading the disease. This animated thriller has one more important dimension – the social element of the story. The zombies represent the homeless, drug addicts and people from the margins of our society hunted by the authorities and the police.
