Two years after Train to Busan, South Korea is still on the zombie movie/drama trend—a zombie-themed Netflix original K-drama Kingdom will be released in January—and it seems Singapore is also jumping on the trend.
When Ghost Meets Zombie marries all the popular genres—zombie, horror and romance—into one local production starring local heartthrob Nathan Hartono, Kpop-turned-Mandopop singer Ferlyn G and MediaCorp artiste Jesseca Liu have in common.
Slated for release on Valentine’s Day 2019, the comedy follows emotionless zombie Pong (Nathan Hartono) as he is possessed by female ghost Zhen Zhen (Ferlyn). Hilarity and romance ensue when Zhen Zhen has to use Pong’s body to fulfill her final wish—winning a beauty pageant.
“It’s a film that created many ‘firsts’ for us”, says Director Han Yew Kwang at the When Ghost Meets Zombie ATF Media Conference yesterday.
