Upcoming zombie thriller #ALIVE has released new stills of the movie’s leading lady Park Shin-hye, fueling everyone’s anticipation for its scheduled premiere in late June.
Set in a city that is undergoing a lockdown due to mysterious virus outbreak, #ALIVE centers on survivors Yoo-bin (Park Shin-hye) and Joon-woo (Yoo Ah-in) who are avoiding infected humans to keep themselves from contracting the dangerous disease. The two struggle to fight for their lives inside an isolated apartment complex while being socially disconnected from the rest of the world—no Wi-Fi, mobile network, or data.
The first snapshot reveals a slightly shaken Yoo-bin, holding her binoculars in one hand and clutching a tablet computer in the other. She is standing by her window and seems to have just witnessed a disturbing view outside. From the looks of her unsoiled appearance, this could be the scene where she first realizes that the once-peaceful and bright city of Seoul is now in a state of health emergency.
In the second photo, a more anxious Yoo-bin is shown to be on a walkie-talkie, perhaps contacting someone or asking help from the other survivors. She is inside a dimly lit room, looking terrified, as if learning that there is only a slim chance of finding refuge outside the building.
Park Shin-hye (Heart Blackened), describes her character as a composed individual with high survival instincts. “Yoo-bin is both calm and quick-witted,” she explained. “She is someone who can stay focused and collected while thinking through all the possible survival scenarios that she could adopt.”
The actress, who is reported to have shared great chemistry with co-star Yoo Ah-in (Default), has also received praises from the film’s director Cho Il-hyung for not only having breathed life into Yoo-bin with her remarkable acting but also for displaying impressive physical skills in challenging action scenes.
Director Cho said, “Park Shin-hye is an actress who always pushes her limits. I think she has all the capabilities needed to convincingly portray the different aspects of Yoo-bin’s character.”
