Synopsis
Set in a post-apocalyptic world, a world war has ravaged the world which is now covered completely in snow. The only means for survival is to board the Transperceneige (snow train), but the train only has 1001 coaches. On the train, the poor wallow in misery in the lower decks, while the rich lives in decadence in the upper decks. Then their two worlds start to collide … ~~~ “Snowpiercer” is based on the French comic “Le Transperceneige” by Jacques Lob. Movie will contain roughly 50% Korean dialogue & 50% English. Pre-production has commenced. Art director Ryoo Seung-Hee and his team is working on the art design – front and back of the train, engine. Source: MyDramaList
My Thoughts: Imagine my surprise when my daughter says “I know you know who this Korean guy is?” I told you, “You Betcha!” How did this fly under my movie radar? I was totally surprised! What a way to introduce the ENglish speaking public to some great Korean actors, especially one like Song Kang Ho! I really believe as more and more movies and dramas are introduced to American streaming sites like Netflix and Hulu, I expect to see more and GREAT Korean actors like Kang Ho to “cross-over” to the Hollywood screen. Okay, my daughter said she has to see this, me too!

  1. It's nice to see more Korean actors crossing over into Hollywood or Western movies.I'm always on the fence about post-apocalyptic shows, but this could prove interesting. I'm probably going to take my grandfather to see Red 2. He forced me to watch the first one and I'll make him watch the second one so we can see Bruce Willis and Lee Byung Hun kick butt. I like how LBH will actually be playing a Korean this time around. He requested the director change the nationality from Chinese to Korean if that wouldn't hurt the plot.
