Ryu Seung-ryong will play an ordinary man who acquires supernatural powers and uses them to help his wife, daughter and neighbors. The actor previously starred in “The Sound of a Flower” (2015).

Shim Eun-kyung, who appeared in the opening sequence of “Train to Busan,” will play the daughter, a sprightly character with a strong instinct for survival. Other cast members include Park Jung-min, who was in “Dongju; The Portrait of a Poet” (2016) and Jung Yu-mi, who also starred in “Train to Busan.”

Yeon received global attention last year for zombie thriller flick “Train to Busan,” which follows a motley crew of passengers on a train when a sudden zombie virus outbreak overtakes the country.

The film was a box office hit locally and screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
