Instead of waiting for a new movie why not watch the original
OR just watch the actual Train to Busan for the incredible movie that it is. No whiteout pen needed 🤗 https://t.co/7tNxVddZaA

Train to Busan is based on Korean things like culture, history, and class warfare. If the US wants to make a Zombie movie set on a train, why not make their own.
Train to Busan is based on VERY Korean things like culture, history and class that is specific to Korea. Remaking it in the US will strip it of the things that made it special. Just watch the original.
