Writer and director Yeon Sang-ho says he has plans for the future, including Hellbound season 2 and a new installment of Train to Busan.
Netflix’s Hellbound is the streaming service’s newest hit. The Korean horror drama is Netflix’s #1 non-English speaking show. Following on the success of another Korean horror hit Squid Game, fans are already clamoring for the second season of the show.
From the Mind of Yeon Sang-ho
Will There Be a Hellbound Season 2?
After the live-action adaptation’s success, Yeon Sang-ho spoke to Variety about the future of Hellbound.
“Because ‘Hellbound’ is based on the original webtoons, my partner Choi Kyu-Seok and I have decided that the story afterwards will be told first through the webtoon and, as for whether we would want to turn that into another live-action series, that’s something that we will need further discussion on.”
He also expressed the intention to expand the zombie world of Train to Busan into other stories.
“Personally, I do have some ideas in terms of further development of what happens after ‘Peninsula.’ But as for whether I will create that into a film, it’s something that I do want to do.”
He goes on to discuss how organizing his world may take some time though. One thing’s for sure– the public successes of his works will keep his plate full for the foreseeable future.
