Yeon Sang-ho is a director of visually stunning and rough animated movies (The King of Pigs, 2012). With the Train to Busan he moved to feature films to depict social criticism against the background of a stunning action. This, and the ensemble including top Korean actors, is why the movie has become the best Korean box-office in 2016.
