Actually, this issue has been around since February 2021 when New Line Cinema, an American-based production house, announced they would release a remake of the Korean box office film.

“Let me tell you guys. This is going to be rubbish. And I want you to read the subtitles and leave this horror genre to the Asians. You shouldn’t touch this (film) or #Alive, because American movies don’t have this kind of imagination. Never mind, this is what I said,” the ticked account tweeted.


Instantly this tweet was crowded and many viewers agreed with it. “I love Train to Busan and one thing I like that I’ve never seen in American cinemas is that it’s not just a bloody zombie movie, but it also has emotions,” said a netizen.

“Also a lot of Asian horror adds a sense of moral dilemma where it really opens your eyes about how you would react in that situation. We (American films) just give cinema shock,” added another.


Train to Busan premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016 and quickly gained popularity, eventually spawning the sequel Train to Busan: Peninsula in 2020.
