A group of bullies led by Son Myung-hwan from Hyosan High School attack fellow student Lee Jin-su. Jin-su falls off the rooftop and is hospitalized. His father, Lee Byeong-chan, a science teacher from Hyosan High, realizes Jin-su has developed zombie-like behavior. Some time later in Hyosan High, one of the bullies, Kim Hyeon-ju is bitten by an infected hamster in the science lab. Byeong-chan sees this and locks Hyeon-ju inside the lab, but she escapes the next day and collapses in English teacher Ms. Park's class in a half zombie-like state. Hyeon-ju is taken to the school clinic, where she suddenly bites the school's nurse. An ambulance takes Hyeon-ju to the hospital. The nurse transforms into a zombie and attacks several students, who all get infected and start an outbreak inside the school. Students and childhood friends Nam On-Jo and Lee Cheong-San are in the cafeteria where more infected students make their way inside and panic breaks out.

Not long after, an infected teacher makes his way into the classroom and suddenly transforms into a zombie and bites Min-ji, prompting the other students to flee and fight their way into another classroom. I-sak, however, becomes infected along the way and is thrown out the window, to On-jo's despair. When zombies try to break in, the students use a fire hose to climb down to the broadcasting room because Ms. Park is there. Meanwhile, Yoon Gwi-nam, a bully and Myung-hwan's henchman, hides in the cafeteria's kitchen with another two students and a lunch lady. The school's archery team - including Woo-jin's sister Jang Ha-ri and her co-athlete Jung Min-jae - arrive and notice the situation at school. Senior students Yoo Jun-seong and Park Mi-jin are trapped in a restroom with infected student Lee Ha-lim, but are saved by Ha-ri and Min-jae.

In the broadcasting room, a zombie appears outside the window, causing Gyeong-su to be scratched on his wrist. Na-yeon accuses him of being infected and they isolate him for their safety. After they isolate Gyeong-su in a corner room, Na-yeon pretends to apologise but secretly puts zombie blood on a handkerchief and applies it to his wound, causing Gyeong-su to transform and attack the others, who throw him out the window. As the students condemn Na-yeon for murdering Gyeong-su, Na-yeon walks out of the room, with a concerned Ms. Park quickly following her. Gwi-nam alone escapes from the kitchen after he pushes the others to the zombies. Hyosan's situation makes the government impose martial law and they begin to evacuate survivors.

He created a virus in an attempt to make his son stronger, only to see his son develop into a zombie, and attacked his mother, who also turned. A zombie horde attacks the police station, and Byeong-chan is bitten. Using his final moments, Byeong-chan tells Jae-ik that his laptop is in the school's science lab with the answer to eradicate the virus and he stays behind to block the horde. After receiving the crucial information, Jae-ik and his sole surviving junior colleague Jeon Ho-chul escape the station.

They send the drone outside the school and are distraught to see the destruction, including Ji-min's zombified parents, who attempted to reach her. All landlines and internet are shut down in Hyosan in an attempt to control fake news about the virus, as Jun-seong, Mi-jin, Min-jae, and Ha-ri enter the school's infirmary and attempt to use a computer, before heading for the archery training center to use an emergency phone to call for help. In the outside world, while they are trying to reach Hyosan High, Jae-ik and Ho-chul seek refuge in Cheong-san's mother's chicken restaurant, where they find the zombified Hee-su, infected and tied up at the door, with her healthy newborn baby safely placed on a bench away from her.

Nam-ra and Su-hyeok push Gwi-nam out a window before they hide in a room. Nam-ra also doesn't immediately transform. Cheong-san, who earlier witnessed Gwi-nam being bitten, argues for her to be killed despite Su-hyeok's insistence that Gwi-nam was not a zombie when he bit Nam-ra. Nam-ra stays by a window, ready to jump if she turns; Su-hyeok stays by her side. Nam-ra gradually enters a half-zombified state and has an urge to bite Su-hyeok, but regains control of herself.

As the group plan to escape, they close one door of the room while another is left open, and a large barrier is created in the middle of the room. Zombies are attracted to noises made, clearing the corridor and enabling the survivors to flee all the way to the rooftop, but the rooftop door is locked by Kim Chul-soo, a school outcast who was already on the rooftop when the outbreak began. As the zombies follow the students on the staircase leading to the rooftop, Su-hyeok and Cheong-san fight them off. Cheong-san finds himself face-to-face with Gwi-nam, who appears unaffected by the fall earlier on. In the outside world, So-ju arms himself with a shotgun from the police station's armoury and continues on his way to Hyosan High to save On-Jo. Jae-ik, Ho-chul, Se-bin, and the baby successfully escape the infested streets on a motorcycle.

Both Jae-ik and Orangibberish jump onto the top of the bus as it drives off. They make their way through Hyosan and pick up Eun-ji. They are soon picked up by the military. At the school, during the night, the two different survivor groups bond separately. For the restroom survivors, Ha-ri teaches Mi-jin archery. The rooftop survivors gather around a campfire and talk about their pasts. Flashbacks reveal that Ms. Park was bitten while saving Na-Yeon.

However, they receive last-minute mandatory orders to treat any survivors as asymptomatic and abandon them, due to a simultaneous on-camp incident where Eun-ji suddenly turned aggressive and bit Chul-soo. The soldiers reluctantly leave the rooftop survivors behind, much to their mutual distress. The soldiers and scientists study both Eun-ji and Staff Sergeant Lee Jae-joon, a fully-zombified soldier, and decides to further quarantine the evacuated Hyosan survivors. In Hyosan, it begins to rain and thunder, which impairs the zombies' hearing and vision. Both the rooftop survivors and the restroom survivors notice the zombies' weakness and thus, both groups attempt to make use of it to escape.

Ha-ri, with her companions, reunites with her brother and they met up with the others at the auditorium. Upon entry however, Nam-ra, due to her half-zombified condition, quickly detects a huge zombie horde. During the attack, Min-jae flees outside while Jun-seong sacrifices himself to buy the others time to hide inside the sports equipment room. The next day, the survivors formulate a plan to use the sports equipment and metal carts to form a movable barricade to surround themselves while making their way out of the auditorium. As they carry out the plan, the zombie horde attacks them and Jun-yeong becomes infected. Just as the zombies are about to overwhelm the barricade, the door suddenly opens and On-jo sees her father, who has finally reached the school.

The remaining six student survivors - Su-hyeok, On-jo, Dae-su, Hyo-ryung, Mi-jin and Ha-ri - reach an abandoned railway, where the military finally rescues them. Four months later, the government ends the martial law in Hyosan, but continues to quarantine the residents.

Production was temporarily suspended in August 2020 due to the re-spreading of COVID-19 pandemic in South Korea.[47]

Reception[edit]

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 87% based on 23 reviews, with an average rating of 6.90/10.

IGN rated the series a 7 out of 10 and noted that the series was "clever, thrilling, and also... a bit exhausting."[50] Variety praised the series, stating it "makes the most out of its nightmarish central location to otherworldly, dizzying effect."[51] The series received generally positive reviews for its performances, screenplay, and action sequences, although its long runtime was criticized.[52]
