Best survival game movies Korean

Squid game

From Coffee Prince to Jewel in the Palace to Crash Landing on You and countless other titles, Korean dramas have captivated international audiences for decades. But none have ever achieved the ubiquity of Squid Game, which shot to Netflix’s number one spot in 90 countries within 10 days of its release. 

The series is about a group of people, all in debt, who play children’s games to win 45.6 billion won — the equivalent of nearly $38.5 million. The only catch is that if they lose, they will be killed. 

Train to Busan

What do you think of when it comes to Korean zombie movies. If you ask a movieholic, the definite answer will be Train to Busan. 

Train to Busan grossed $80.5 million in South Korea, $2.2 million in the United States and Canada, and $15.8 million in other territories, for a total worldwide gross of $98.5 million. It became the highest-grossing Korean film in Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

What makes it the best modern zombie film is not only the great casts but also the message to teach audiences the importance of love and sacrifice.


As a Train to Busan sequel, Peninsula is undoubtedly a hit with $42.7 million gross worldwide. However, the film received a lot of mixed reviews about its quality. 

Set four years after the first film, Peninsula sees a team of desperate Korean refugees hired by Hong Kong criminals to recover $20m from a truck abandoned on the quarantined Korean peninsula.


This is an addicting movie with the potential to rewatch. #Alive with its fast-paced plot proves there are still fresh stories to tell when it comes to the walking dead.

The story follows Joon-woo, who trying to lock himself in his room when a crispy virus ravages the city. Just when he lost hope, there is another way to survive.
