The movie Concrete Utopia had its successful gala premiere at the 48th Toronto International Film Festival.
Concrete Utopia is a disaster film that follows a group of survivors who seek refuge in the Hwang Goong apartment, the only building left standing in earthquake-devastated Seoul.
After the premiere, numerous overseas media outlets showered the movie with accolades. Awardswatch reported, “Despite handling familiar themes, Um Tae Hwa pulls through thanks to his direction and technical execution.” Screen Daily described the film as an interesting movie with well-built characters and a clever plot, and as the kind of story that will join the ranks of Korean masterpieces like Parasite and Squid Game.
During the GV section, Lee Byung Hun showed his affection for his character, saying, “The most important thing was to portray how Young Tae gradually changes as he becomes a powerful leader. I had much fun filming the show.” Park Seo Joon shared, “I’m very excited to be here at this big film festival and it feels so special to watch the movie at this theater. It’s such an honorable and thrilling experience to meet you all here.”
