YOON Seok-woo (RYU Seung-bum) is a researcher whose family goes on a trip, leaving him behind to his lonesome. When his friend sets him up on a blind date, Seok-woo just carelessly discards the food waste from his home and heads out to go on his date. His night consists of a good barbecue and dancing at a club with the hot young girl (KO Joon-hee). He finally gets to kiss the girl, when a couple of high school students interrupt their intimate moment. Seok-woo experiences strange physical changes as he is somehow able to beat them to a pulp with a surge of strength. Soon zombies flood the streets of Seoul, as the mass media frantically tries to uncover the identity of a mysterious virus that brings the city to ruins.
