Kim Hyun Joo In Talks To Star In New Zombie Drama By “Train To Busan” And “Hellbound” Director
Kim Hyun Joo may be starring in an exciting new zombie drama!
On July 8, Kim Hyun Joo’s agency IOK Company confirmed that the actress was in talks to star in a new Netflix series called “Family Burial Grounds” (literal translation).
“Our actress Kim Hyun Joo has received a casting offer for the lead role in the Netflix original series ‘Family Burial Grounds,’ and she is currently reviewing the offer with a favorable outlook,” stated the agency.
“Family Burial Grounds” will tell the story of a village whose residents begin to develop mysterious symptoms before eventually transforming into zombies. The drama will be helmed by Yeon Sang Ho, the director of the hit zombie film “Train to Busan” and its sequel “Peninsula.”
Should Kim Hyun Joo accept the offer, it will mark her third time working with Yeon Sang Ho: the actress previously starred in the director’s 2021 series “Hellbound,” and she will also be starring in his upcoming film “Jung-E.”
