According to iTech Post, Lee will replace Gong Yoo as lead actor in the much-anticipated Train to Busan 2, while Song Joong Ki from the top-rated Korean drama series Descendants of the Sun will be his co-star. Noting that the producer of the Descendants series and Train to Busan is the same, rumors suggest that Song will play as a military man, just like his role in the series.

Other speculations also suggest that Song will portray a doctor role and will save the daughter of Kim Su-an after the latter died in Train to Busan 2 movie. Some said he could treat the mysterious disease spreading in Busan, Game N Guide reported.

The success of Train to Busan did not just stop in Korea but also spread worldwide, making it one of the most watched film in 2016. Latin Post reported that the movie earned more than $88.1 million as of Sept. 7.

Aside from gaining a huge fan base, the movie also received positive feedback, thus the high demand for a sequel. Even Gong Yoo himself convinced the producers for a sequel.

"I talked about this with director Yeon Sang-Ho," he said. "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."

While it seems that Gong Yoo is really gone for good, director Yeon is still to confirm the upcoming Train to Busan sequel. For now, fans should take everything with a grain of salt until all these rumors and speculations have been proven right.
