Yoo Ah-in, Park Shin-hye fight to live in first posters for upcoming film ‘#ALIVE’

Yoo Ah-in and Park Shin-hye’s new movie #ALIVE has unveiled two posters, confirming its new title.

#ALIVE is a thriller that tells the story of a city infected by a mysterious virus. When the infected people start to attack and the situation gets out of control, the city is locked off, leaving the survivors to fend for themselves, disconnected from the world.

Yoo Ah-in (Default, Chicago Typewriter) and Park Shin-hye (Heart Blackened/Silenced, Memories of the Alhambra) are set to play the role of survivors Jun-woo and Yoo-bin, respectively. Jun-woo is a gamer who is alone and cut off from the world. He meets the calm and determined Yoo-bin, who is forced develop survival skills amidst the dangerous situation. Communicating through walkie-talkies, the two work together to pull through the frightening and dangerous outbreak in complete isolation.

The first poster features Yoo dangerously hanging off the railing of an apartment complex. With the infected on the floor below, he tries to keep his balance with his arm outstretched while holding a phone attached to a selfie stick, trying to catch a signal. The words “data,” “WiFi,” “text,” and “call” are struck through, followed by the caption “Everything is cut off.”

Meanwhile, the second poster reveals an intense scene with the panicked Yoo and Park trapped in the building hallway, with the infected lying in wait on the floors below them. The texts on the building read “Seoul, the Republic of Korea,” “06:24 a.m.,” and “Internet is cut off.”

With the posters’ strong captions, the viewers can look forward to a tension-filled and gripping zombie film.

#ALIVE was previously credited as #ALONE, an original script of the same name by Hollywood screenwriter Matt Naylor, where the movie is based. The film’s director and screenwriter, Cho Il-hyung, worked together with Naylor to adapt and develop the story for the Korean market. This will be Cho’s first feature film. It is scheduled for release late June this year.
