a
massive
fan
of
zombies.
When
I
watched
different
zombie
sequence,
they’re
all
working
round
to
have
some
meals.
I
may
sound
a
little
perverted
however
I
did not
really feel
worry,
I
felt
very
sorry
for
the
zombies
as a result of
why
would
they
run
so
exhausting
to
simply
eat
that
little
bit
of
flesh?
That is
why
I
landed
on
the
theme
of
starvation,” Kim
Eun-hee
mentioned
in
a
Zoom
interview
from
Seoul,
South
Korea.

however
what
I
was
attracted
to
the
most
was
starvation
and
that
was

level
for
me,” Kim

Kingdom

director
Kim
Seong-hun,
who
has
additionally
helmed
the
92-minute
particular
episode
“Ashin
of
the
North”,
believes
South
Korean
zombie
tales
have
turn out to be
globally
well-known
as
the
writers
and
filmmakers
focus
on
telling
unique
tales
to
stand
aside
from
their
western
counterparts,
who
have
extra
cash
and
technical
know-how
to
make investments.

South
Korea
has
made
the
style
its
personal
by
delivering
extremely
unique
content material
with
the
2016
blockbuster
movie

Prepare

,
its
sequel

Peninsula
,

#Alive,
Rampant
,
animated
“Seoul
Station”
and
“Kingdom”
to
title
a
few.
Kim
Seong-hun,
50,
credit
Korean
creators
for
the
reputation
of
the
zombie
tales
from
the
nation.

“Normally,
it is
Hollywood
that
does
the
greatest
job
as a result of
they
have
the
cash
and
the
know-how.
So,
to
differentiate
from
Hollywood,
what
the
Korean
creators
do
is
to
turn out to be
extra
unique
and
have
extra
unique
tales
moulded
to
the
zombie
style,
which
makes
them
look
nice.
I
assume
that is
why
so
many
individuals
love
the
Korean
model,”
he
added.

The
director
mentioned
it
is
difficult
to
direct
native
actors
as
the
flesh-eating
creatures
as
“Korean
zombies
are
full
of
stamina
and
they’re
very
quick”,
which
could
lead
to
security
points
on
the
set.
“The
different
problem
was
that
this
is
a
zombie
style,
however
it is
additionally
primarily based
in
a
historic
time
interval
so
there
have been
a
lot
of
visible
results
and
martial
arts.
Even
having
simply
one
of
them
in
the
story
can
make
it
tough,
however
we
had
all
three
of
them.
So
I
assume
that
was
the
most
difficult
half,”
he
added.
