#Alive Top-Billed By Yoo Ah In & Park Shin Hye Confirms International Premiere Via Netflix
Following its big screen release, #Alive gears up to meet overseas viewers through its Netflix launch in September!
Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, confirmed the international premiere of #Alive as September 8, 2020.
#ALIVE is a survival thriller film of people isolated in an apartment building without any means of digital communication. The survivors are in the brink of danger after a cryptic monster outbreak ensued to terrorize them.
When a mysterious virus outbreak spreads throughout modern day Seoul and rapidly grows out of control, people struggle to stay alive. The unknown infection causes victims to eat each other, turning them into zombies.
Oh Jun-u, played by Yoo Ah In, and Kim Yu-bin, played by Park Shin Hye, struggle to survive in an apartment complex from those infected with the virus. They are trapped alone inside their apartments without access to cellular data, Wi-Fi, text, or phone calls. Their only source of information about the outside world is the news on TV and what they can see from outside their apartment windows.
While they are neighbors, Jun-u and Yu-bin have opposite personalities. Jun-u is a typical middle-class boy who enjoys computer games and social networking. He utilizes technology to survive. Meanwhile, Yu-bin incorporates more traditional items like camping tools and telescopes to survive. With their varying abilities, the pair work together to stay alive.
Here is the ACTUAL opening scene from #Alive, a Korean zombie film starring Park Shin-hye and Yoo Ah-in!!! 🧟You’re welcome. See what happens next on September 8!
