“Seoul Station” - South Korean Animated Zombie Outbreak Film Coming To Singapore Screens

WIKI PLOT: "Taking place in and around Seoul station, a man sleeping rough is the catalyst for a zombie apocalypse. Through this a young runaway woman must try to survive in a world that sees her as disposable." (Wiki)

IMDB PLOT: ”Several groups of people try to survive a zombie pandemic that unleashes itself in downtown Seoul.” (IMDb)

Launched August 18th in South Korea is the animated movie “SEOUL STATION” - which is essentially a prequel to the live-action film Train to Busan by the same director, Sang-ho Yeon, with this an hour and a half animated feature starring the voices of Ryu Seung-ryong (as Dad), Shim Eun-kyung (as Daughter) and Lee Joon (as Boyfriend).

Prior to the launch, the film was shown at the 2016 Edinburgh Film Festival - circa June 2016 - and the 34th Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF). The trailer is reposted below for your gawking pleasures…

“Animated Zomibes” = I’d like to watch that! With the success that Train To Busan has seen on Singapore’s screens, “Seoul Station” has since been scheduled to debut on SG screens (via Golden Village) on September 22nd! Would be extremely interesting to see how this viewing-experience combo works ... :)

TOYSREVIL @ Band of Doodlers’ Seven Deadly SINs (Strength In Numbers) - Now On at Capitol Piazza (Basement 2) til September 25th

At the @bandofdoodlers' #SevenDeadlySINs #StrengthInNumbers Art Show!

A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on

Visiting the SEVEN DEADLY SINS (Strength In Numbers) exhibition at Capitol Piazza (recently renovated Captiol Theatre venue along Stamford Road, Singapore), one is surrounded and confronted by the 7 Deadly Sins that plague humanity, and you’d be in a minor state of art nirvana by the end of the experience!

Since blogging about it, I could not wait to check out the exhibition! Shown here are some snaps I had taken (MORE on Facebook), and my impressions, to share :)

Flanking the left and right of the gallery space, are seven deadly sins embodies by illustrations, split down the middle by a hand-drawn carpet; a “River of Doodlon”, if you will, leading to the Band of Doodlers table-“altar”, where a workshop was being held, the Saturday morning I visited the exhibition.

Ben AKA KedTwo (IG @kedtwo) was conducting a workshop sharing the basics of calligraphy, while Chief BODoodler Mas Shafreen AKA WantonDoodle was also on hand, busy filming the workshop himself - truly a DIY hands-on endeavour for this 3-years-strong collective. Inspiring.

Mas had shared that out of over 200 entries, 70 youth artists were picked for this showcase - each 10 were in turn mentored by 7 x youth mentors who each had a “Sin”, by which their artwork told “the story of how individual trespasses can get in the way of achieving our goals and aspirations.”

The 7 BOD Artist Mentors are:

- Candice Phang AKA Puffingmuffin (IG @puffingmuffin) for GREED,
- Raihana Abdul Rahim AKA “3EYEBODIES” (IG @araikreva) for LUST
- Pratama Eka Dharma AKA Pedmons for PRIDE (IG @pedmons)
- Teressa Ong ( / IG @chopsticksroad) for SLOTH
- Nur Aida Sa'ad AKA yellowmushmellow (IG @yellowmushmellow) for GLUTTONY
- Edison Teo AKA Galactik Captain (IG galactikcaptain) for WRATH
- Epiphany Becomes An Obsession AKA EBAO (IG @ebao_art) for ENVY

If you haven’t noticed by now, the individual panels dividing the “SINs” were actually hand-doodled on the panel surface directly by the team corresponding with the “Sin”!

Featured below are just some of my select artworks which caught my eye, as snapped at the show and Instagrammed! (*FYI: These are not all full shots of the artwork! You’d have to go see them in person for yourselves :p)

Looking at the images on show, you’d wish some of them were made prints for sale, but unlike previous BOD shows, these were not the case here, as the one-of-one artwork were purely for “showcase” purposes. Folks who attended the show opening last Friday night (Aug 26th) had groovy BOD enamel pins and an abundance of badges to squirrel away with.

Powered by NOISE Singapore, this is a culmination of a month long “Doodle Fiesta” (1st - 31 July) with “Scen Deadly SINs” exhibiting thru September 25th, 2016. Folks interested to join the collective of White Space Bandits are to enquire via “”, and you can stay connected via their / / Instagram @bandofdoodlers and shop via
