The Korean disaster thriller movie Concrete Utopia, which grossed over $28 million, is now streaming on Viu Philippines.

Concrete Utopia, Korea’s fourth highest grossing film of 2023, is set in Seoul after a devastating earthquake. In the story, everything is in shambles except for the Hwang Gung Apartments, which remains intact. As outsiders flock to Hwang Gung Apartments to escape the cold, young couple Min-sung (played by Park Seo-joon) and Myung-hwa (Park Boo-young) must decide on the best course of action while the mysterious Yeong-tak (Lee Byung-Hun) emerges to lead the fate of the community. In no time, the apartment is filled beyond capacity, driving the residents to enact harsh measures for their survival.

 Since its theatrical release in South Korea in August 2023, Concrete Utopia has captured the hearts and imagination of audiences across the globe with its riveting story, suspenseful drama and powerful performances. It was warmly received in international filmfests, particularly the Toronto International Film Festival, Sitges International Film Festival, Hawaii International Film Festival, International Film Festival of India and Kolkata International Film Festival.
