As a zombie virus surges through the homeless community of Seoul Station and soon spreads to the city, a former prostitute tries to survive in the rapidly escalating chaos, while her would-be pimp boyfriend and anxious father search for her in the blood-and-neon-soaked streets of the South Korean capital as swarms of ravenous undead continue to rise.
As the sun sets around Seoul Station, an old man thought to have died sinks his teeth into the warm flesh of a homeless person. Soon, the streets are filled with vicious zombies desperate to feed.
Hae-sun, a runaway, witnesses the frightening sight while her father Suk-gyu and boyfriend desperately search for her. As the attacked become the attackers, the government declares a lock out of the station, leaving the uninfected to struggle desperately against the dangerous undead. With zombie numbers exploding, people without a home to return to, now have to flee without a place to run to, in order to survive.
In the animated prequel to the global breakout hit Train to Busan, see where the horror started.

When I first watched Train To Busan in 2016, I fell in love with it. It remains one of my favourite zombie films, one of my favourite films of 2016, and... just one of my favourite films in general. I knew Seoul Station followed Train To Busan rather soon afterwards as an animated prequel, but never got around to watching it. However, with the release of the Peninsula sequel, I thought I'd get a complete experience and watch the films together as a trilogy.
Going in, I kept my expectations tempered as most reviews were much more lukewarm towards Seoul Station than they were to Train To Busan. I had a feeling I was in a for a very different beast, and that's more or less what I got. Seoul Station lacks the tight claustrophobia of Train To Busan, instead depicting the outbreak and early stages of the zombie hoards throughout Seoul. In many ways, things are a lot more politically charged here, retaining the same undertones of class conflict and exploring prejudices towards those who are homeless. It's truly bleak too, especially in its last ten minutes. While I obviously don't want to spoil anything, the ending pulls the rug from under your feet with a cruel twist. I wouldn't exactly call Train To Busan's ending a happy one, but it did ended with a note of hope. There's none of that here this time, and you're in for something much more nihilistic.
Perhaps the most prominent shortcoming of Seoul Station is in its presentation, rather than its story. See, you'd be forgiven for expecting Seoul Station to be a much more low-key affair with its considerably lower budget than Train To Busan. However, that's not really the case and with the quality of the animation at times, it's hard to escape the feeling that it's ambition exceeds what it could get away with. The animation's fine generally, but it does have its moments where it ends up looking a bit ropey. Maybe it bites off a little more than it could chew, but all the same it's brief enough that it's hardly a bad time. Far from it in fact, and while I wouldn't call this essential viewing, if you have watched Train To Busan and want to spend a little bit more time in its universe, then maybe give this a go.
