In 2016, actor Gong Yoo told Sports Chosun about the potential for a sequel. He said that he would love to be a part of it. However, since his character died in the first installment and turned into a zombie, he suggested telling the story from a zombie perspective.
"I talked about this with Director Yeon Sang Ho, and I said that I thought my character Seok Woo might be living somewhere as a zombie. But Director Yeon said that when Seok Woo fell off the train, he broke his neck and died.
