Park Seo Joon, Park Bo Young, and Lee Byung Hun’s upcoming film “Concrete Utopia” has unveiled the main trailer!
Loosely based on Part 2 of the hit webtoon “Joyful Outcast” (“Pleasant Neighbors”), “Concrete Utopia” is a new disaster thriller about the aftermath of a devastating earthquake. The film will follow the story that begins when the survivors gather at Hwang Goong Apartments, the only building left standing in an earthquake-ravaged Seoul.
The main teaser begins with Young Tak (Lee Byung Hun) standing alone amidst a devastated apartment buildings after an earthquake. Young Tak narrates, “I have a feeling that our apartment has been chosen.” Having become the temporary leader of the residents of Hwang Goong Apartments, he takes the lead in gathering people and making the apartment into a fort.
The atmosphere suddenly changes completely when unidentified survivors from outside arrive at the Hwang Goong Apartments. As the individual characters’ desires for survival get bigger and more desperate, people start to feel threatened by the outsiders and eventually drive them out of the apartment. Min Sung (Park Seo Joon), who just wants to protect his family, and Myung Hwa (Park Bo Young), who wants to keep her faith and survive altogether, argue with each other over the cruel situation in front of their eyes.
Toward the end, the clip previews a tense confrontation between the Hwang Goong Apartment residents, who try to protect their own family and their apartments, and the outsiders, who try to fight for their own survival.
