I managed to finished watching #rampant alone! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚πŸ˜± I watched "Train to Busan" on cinema with a lot of people with me. It was daeeeebak. πŸ‘ Now, the makers of this movie was the same but they set the time in Joseon era. That's why I want to watch it so bad because I am curious on how will they survive the zombies with only swords, bow and arrow or spear as their weapon. The zombies from Train to Busan have the same feautures they are still good at bending their body when the virus spread. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ They are still sensitive to sounds. The only difference is they cannot go out on sunlight. Train to Busan only have 2 survivors from the train, even Gong yoo, the main character died. As the movie goes, it was a reflief that many people lived, the pregnant princess. Especially Prince Ganglim, the fear that he may not survive when he volunteered to be left behind. All the zombies swarming around him.😱😱😱😱 Also when he had hard time fighting with Minister Kim who's nearly in a zombie state. I recognized the actor who played the King is the same actor who played that selfish evil man who bit Gong yoo. And he became a zombie on both movies. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… Jung yoo ahn is in he movie but I only recognized him in the end scene when he smiled to the villagers πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I missed @sunbin_eyesmag in Criminal minds. I really hope that they make a second season. 😊 All in all the movie was great! It haunted me in my dreams so it was very effective. πŸ˜‚ That's why I don't want to watch horror movies because I cannot control my imagination after. πŸ˜‚ If there will be a zombie apocalypse in real life. Maybe I'd rather kill myself than to become one, at least I will die as a human like Man bo. #rampantkoreanmovie #hyunbin #jangdonggun #hyunbin #zombie #humanvszombies #joseonera #koreanmoviereview

If you love Korean culture and zombies, “Rampant” is a movie that should be on your watchlist! When we think of zombies, we probably picture the ones from “The Walking Dead.” However, Korean zombies are on a whole other level like in the movie ‘Train to Busan” and the show “Kingdom.”

“Rampant” is a 2018 Korean movie that takes place during the Joseon Dynasty with zombies known as ‘night demons.’ The zombie film is produced by Kim Sung-hoon featuring the famous actor by the name of Hyun-bin. Despite receiving mixed reviews in the box office, “Rampant” keeps you on your toes till the end. Furthermore, the movie provided inspiration towards the Netflix series, “Kingdom.”


Once zombies begin to threaten the people of the land, the crown prince commits suicide to keep those close to him alive. The crown prince leaves a request for his brother Lee Chung (Hyun Bin) to take his family to China for safety. But Lee Chung is attacked by assassins driving attention to the hungry zombies. However, the infection starts to spread past the villages into the king’s palace. The king tries to escape the flesh-eating zombies only to become part of the monsters. In turn, Kim decides to slain the king and declare himself as the new ruler. Kim’s greediness for the throne soon leads to his demise after a tense fight with Lee Chung. Will the land of Joseon have any hope for the future? We can only hope that there are people who are willing to fight for their homes.
