Train to Busan (Hangul: 부산행; RR: Busanhaeng) is a 2016 South Korean zombie apocalypse horror thriller film directed by Yeon Sang-ho and starring Gong Yoo, Jung Yu-mi and Ma Dong-seok. The film had its premiere in the Midnight Screenings section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival on 13 May.
Seok-Woo, a divorced fund manager, was always busy with his work that he did not fufil his daughter, Su-an; her wish to bring her to Busan to see her mother. One fine day, he planned to take Su-an to her mother as her birthday gift. They board the KTX at a station in Seoul, which is also occupied by the tough working-class husband Sang-hwa and his pregnant wife Seong-kyeong, a high school baseball team, rich but selfish CEO Yon-suk, elderly sisters In-gil and Jon-gil, and a homeless man.
As the train departs, a spasming young woman boards the train with a bite wound on her leg. The woman succumbs to the bite and becomes a zombie, attacking a female train attendant in which she turn into a zombie. The zombie infection spreads through the train, including the baseball team, but baseball player Yong-guk, his girlfriend Jin-hee, two of their friends, and several passengers manage to escape. News broadcasts report zombie outbreaks throughout Korea. The train stops at Daejeon, but the surviving passengers find the city has also been overrun, and they retreat back to the train, splitting up in the process. The conductor restarts the train to head to Busan, where a successful quarantine zone has reportedly been established.
Seok-Woo, Sang-hwa and Yong-guk fight their way to where Su-an, In-gil, and Seong-kyeong are hiding, and together they make their way to the front train car, where the other passengers are sheltering. However, Yon-suk and the other passengers deliberately block the survivors from entering. Sang-hwa and In-gil sacrifice themselves to give the others time to force open the door and enter the train car. Fearing that the newcomers may be infected with the zombie pathogen, Yon-suk and the other passengers demand that they isolate themselves in another part of the car. Jong-gil deliberately opens the door to the zombies to be with her zombified sister In-gil. The zombies enter and kill the passengers, but Yon-suk and the train attendant escapes the onslaught.
A blocked track at East Daegu train station forces the survivors to stop and search for another train. In the process, Seok Woo, Seong Kyeong, Su-An, Yong-guk, Jin-hee, and the homeless man are split after a burning train knocks over train cars, separating them. Yon-Suk escapes the train after giving the train attendant to the zombies. Yon-Suk catches up and throws Jin-Hee to a pursuing zombie. Yong-Guk throws the zombie away and tries to comfort Jin-Hee but gets bitten by her after she zombifies. The train conductor finds and starts a locomotive on another track, but is also killed by zombies while trying to rescue Yon-suk in which he got bitten. The homeless man sacrifices himself to let Seok-woo, Su-an and Seong-kyeong escape into the train the conductor had activated. They encounter Yon-suk in the engine room on the locomotive on the edge of turning into a zombie. Seok-woo fights off the zombified Yon-suk, but is himself bitten. He deliberately throws himself off the locomotive to his death.
