Soon after that, the same symptoms are plaguing scores of residents in Bundang. People are helpless against the airborne disease and the number of infected increases quickly, spreading chaos.

Honestly, The Best Korean Sci-fi Action/Drama movie ever.. in fact, it's the best Pandemic-kind of movie around.
i thought it will be just a standard pandemic-kind of movie, like what several Europe countries production has made, but it all changed when the virus starts to spread around the city, it was so intense... but the most important thing this movie has achieved is that they successfully bound you emotionally to the characters from the beginning, so even in the most tense scenes, you will still watch not only with excitement, but with passion too, wanting to know more about what happened to every one. What will the government do?, what have become of them?, what is their fate?..
The action was intense, while the drama was so touching and bonding us with it.. in my opinion,this is even better than World War-Z, totally worth the 120+- minutes!
