It did have potential, but...
I wasn't familiar with this animated zombie flick before late in 2018 when I happened to stumble upon it by sheer luck. I had no idea what it was when I picked it up, aside from seeing Korean writing on the cover.
I saw that it was zombies and read the synopsis, and of course I had to give this movie a go.
I will say that it was mediocre at best. Why? Well, because it didn't really have much of a storyline to it. It was a very watered down storyline that had very little to offer. And the sheer amount of zombies in the story didn't really lift up the lack of a proper storyline all that much. Which, ultimately, meant that this was somewhat of a shallow movie experience. And it didn't offer anything overly new to the genre, aside from being an animated movie, which is something you don't see all that often in the zombie genre.
The characters in the movie were somewhat of a hit and miss, as most of them were pointless and lacked personality, appeal and were essentially just fillers on the screen.
There wasn't really much of any gore and mayhem in the movie, and that which actually was there was moderate and toned down, so don't expect anything ghastly or visually gory.
All in all, then "Seoulyeok" (aka "Seoul Station") came and went without much of a groan and without much of a bite. I was struggling to stay awake during the course of this animated movie, and I can in all honesty say that I am not returning to watch it a second time around.
