The story started with a man named Seok-woo, who is a fund manager in Seoul and was separated from his wife and living with his daughter, Soo-an. On the night before Soo-an’s birthday, she wanted to see her mother for her birthday. Early the next morning, Seok-woo and Soo-an board the KTX (Korea Train Express) for Busan at the Seoul Station. Before the KTX train left the Seoul Station, a girl who was infected with a horrific virus that was spreading like wildfire and made her like a zombie jumps onto the train. Seok-woo, Soo-an, and other passengers on the KTX train must fight for their lives.
The movie starred Gong-yoo, Jung Yu-mi, Ma Dong-seok, Kim Soo-ahn, Kim Eui-sung, Choi Woo-shik, Ahn Soo-hee, Jang Hyuk-jin, Shim Eun-kyung.
In Train To Busan, Choi Woo-shik takes on the role of Young-kook, a high school student and baseball player. In the movie, Young-kook and his friends, including Jin-hee (Ahn So-hee), were taking a trip to Busan on board the KTX.
When the zombie was attacking the passengers on the KTX, Young-kook attempted to protect his friends. But, unfortunately his male friend was attacked by a zombie first and he had no choice besides protecting his female friend, Jin-hee, until the end. They fight with zombies and tried to survive with some of the other passengers.
Young-kook tried hard to protect Jin-hee from the zombie attack but, sadly, both of them were bitten by zombies in the end.
