What is the plot of the legacy?
The plot details of the legacy are extremely limited, and we have only been able to find one small description of Han Cinema:
A play showing the villagers turning into zombies with unknown symptoms.
It has not yet been revealed what kind of zombies we will see in the K-drama. We expect to see the extremely fast carnivorous ghouls considering that the director of the series is Yeon Sang Ho, the writer-director of the beloved Train to Busan.
Is the legacy a part of the Train to Busan franchise?
Pairing up the zombies and Yeon Sang Ho once again, we can all be forgiven for assuming the legacy could be part of the Train to Busan franchise.
Nothing has been confirmed so far. However, from a marketing perspective, if Netflix were to announce the show as a spinoff or prequel to Train to Busanwould generate a significant amount of interest.
