A film by Um Tae-hwa, Concrete Utopia draws inspiration from Part 2 of the popular webtoon “Joyful Outcast” (Pleasant Neighbors). The star-studded cast includes renowned Korean actors such as Lee Byung-hun, Park Seo-jun, Park Bo-young, Park Ji-hu, Kim Do-yoon, and Kim Sun-young. 

This disaster thriller unfolds in the wake of a catastrophic earthquake, focusing on the survivors who take shelter at Hwang Gung Apartments, the solitary structure left standing amidst the ruins of Seoul’s earthquake-stricken landscape.
