When he returned back after receiving the letter of his brother. Then he observes that there is no soldier to pick him up in honour. So he takes it awkward.  Then he says to his friend, walking with him. I am not getting the point. Why did anyone not come to receive me? But the most astonishing fact about which they were unaware was this, This kingdom had been attacked completely by the zombies. They could not appear in the daytime because they were burnt in the sunlight. So there was a power in their attacks at night time. When minister knows that king's younger son" Lee Chung"  is returning back then he says to the king, Remember! He did not come with any excuse when you called him before. Now he returned back when he knew that his elder brother is no more. How did he come? He surely wants to take the seat of the king. The king is also entrapped by Minster's words. After this, a lady predictor also tells the king,  Yeah! Your younger son will turn against you! So king explodes in rage in his whole family. Because he used to take his elder son against him. So he also makes elder son's  wife captive. But he has no knowledge that she is expectant. "Lee Chung" and his friend are seen. Suddenly , a few soldiers appear before them. But "Lee Chung" understands that they have not come here to greet him but kill. Because they are armed. How does a prince not detect that someone is loyal with him or have come to kill. He begins to end all soldiers one by one. It is night time. So zombies are also become active. Which move forward with the aim to attack them. And they kill a number of the soldiers. Then they move towards prince "Lee Chung". But "Lee Chung" confronts them as they are going to bite him. But all zombies are not lessening in number. Then two persons appear there to save "Lee Chung". There is same that soldier among them who was given a letter to deliver "Lee Chung" by his elder brother. There is also a girl along with him named "Deok-Hee". They both hit the zombies badly together. "Deok-Hee" ends the zombies , using her ranged weapon. In the same way, that man says to "Lee Chung", Come with me! "Lee Chung" asks him, Stop! How do you know my name? I will not accompany you.There may be any conspiracy! Because many assassin are coming too kill me. Then that man reveals his identity saying that I was the spacial lieutenant of you elder brother. I am here to rescue you! "Lee Chung" witnesses as he moves at a little distance. That king and Minster have imprisoned some of the people thinking them a infected by zombies. When they come to know that "Lee Chung" is also the son of the king, Seeing him, They begin to call his name. Saying , Prince "Lee Chung"! Help us, We have been imprisoned here. And it is unknown when zombies may attack us! "Lee Chung" says, No! I am not any prince. I have just visited here at the death of my elder brother. And I will soon return back. How can I help all of you? Then his elder brother's special lieutenant says to him, How can you say it? You are unlike your brother. He used to help everyone. Then "Lee Chung" says, No! I cannot be like him. Nor I am fond of it. I mind my business. I have to return back to my city soon. In the next scene, a man is shown who says, coming to the Minister, I have killed "Lee Chung" . Award me the money! So Minister knew that he is telling a lie. And many people will claim the same, coming there. So they may get reward. Then Minister calls that lady, Who had predicted before the king that your younger son will kill you or he may turn against you. So Minister calls her inside. And he himself goes outside, locking the door. Then a creature appears from the downward and drags her inside. Actually, it is a zombie. And Minister did it deliberately. The reality will be exposed later. Then it is seen that "Lee Chung" is saying with "Deok-Hee", What is here? There are many zombies. Just accompany me to my city! But "Deok-Hee" says to him, No! I will rescue my natives. And you should also do the same as a prince. Then "Deok-Hee" notices that a man is being attacked by a zombie. She immediately rescues him, going there. Suddenly, one more zombie captures "Deok-Hee". But "Lee Chung" saves her life before it infected "Deok-Hee", coming there. Now that secret is revealed. Why had that Minister called that lady to him? And he made her victim of zombie. Because he knew that she is the only lady, Who can meet the king directly. Being infected, she will surely bite the king. And she will leave the king infected. And it was the best plan to kill the king and to be crowned himself later. It happens the same. That lady is soon transformed into a zombie. And she also bites the king. King explodes in rage. He pushes her away. And he orders to eliminate all zombies and infected people in the kingdom without any thought. Contrarily, "Lee Chung" is seen who is with his elder brother's special lieutenant and "Deok-Hee". They both are saying to "Lee Chung", We should reveal to the king that, Dispatch your army  to eliminate the zombies! Otherwise the matters will be worsened soon. Then "Lee Chung" says, Okay! I will convey to him. "Deok-Hee" says to him, I don't trust you! You want to go back in your city. Who knows that you may return your city! I will accompany you! "Lee Chung" asks him, Okay! Will you accompany to my city with me if I convey this message to the king? So "Deok-Hee" has to agree because she has awareness about "Lee Chung" . How wayward he is! So they move on., Then a man stops them out of that city, Saying, no strangers is allowed to come inside! Because the infection of zombies is spreading very rapidly. That man says to "Lee Chung", You can come if you want to accompany me but not in this kingdom. So "Lee Chung" is agreed to go with him. And he says to his companions, You will stay here! Now that man declares to "Lee Chung" that I can make possible your meeting with the king! But you will have to be with me! So "Lee Chung" consents. Then his elder brother's special lieutenant tells him that Minister is an evil man. Your elder brother sacrificed his life because of that Minister. Don't be entrapped by him! On the other side, Minister is seen in a meeting. In which all people are talking that king is still alive even though the zombie infection has spread in him. And he is still a human. A man comes to tell Minister with it, You cannot be crowned in case the king is killed. Because his son prince "Lee Chung" has returned back. Minister is infuriated on this fact. He will surely be planning that "Lee Chung" may be ended. Now "Lee Chung" is shown who has appeared before the king. He asks the king, How are you father? You know that the country's condition has turned worst. Can you not dispatch your soldiers that they may eliminate all zombies? What were the consequences what you had ordered before. Have you remembered when the king ordered to end the zombies, Then Minister had suggested, No! It will not be carried out. At this time, Minister  says while interrupting him, No King! We cannot let it happen. How can we kill the zombies? We will put our lives at risk. He was saying this because he did not want that zombies may end, He wanted that zombie's infection may spread more and increases the number of the zombies. So they may kill the king's army easily while attacking all soldiers. And the king may leave alone. He will also be killed because of his infection. I will be called a king of this kingdom. His intentions are not good. But "Lee Chung" says to the Minister, I know your intentions! You wished it that I may be ended on the way, And I may not reach here. But you are forgetting it that I am prince "Lee Chung". My elder brother committed suicide because of you! But I am not as such. I will not take my steps back! Then "Lee Chung" says to the king again , Just think about my words! Dispatch your army! The king asks, Why should I take your suggestion? Have you remembered? You had not come when I called you at once. And you had said, You are busy! As you knew that your brother is no more, So you came here to take his seat. So you may be crowned after me. What have you sacrificed for this place in the whole life? "Lee Chung" tells, No father! I don't want it at all. Nor I can ever take the place of my elder brother. No one can be equal to him. Such a man who sacrificed his life for the sake of his kingdom and to spare the lives of his soldiers. I have only a pursuit to come here to rescue my elder brother's wife. I may take her away from here forever. Where the matter of getting the seat of the king, I have no lust either you are crowned or you choose anyone else for this. The king asks "Lee Chung" , What do you think that he was only your elder brother? He was also my offspring. Have I not sadness at his death? Matter was different. And you are saying that I may send army to end the zombies, Alright! I give you a chance. So "Lee Chung" feels satisfaction, hearing it. At the same time, king's condition begins to worsen because zombie infection was spreading in his body. So he says to "Lee Chung", Go away right now! "Lee Chung" directly goes to his elder brother's wife and says to him, Come to me! I will take care of you. You have been bound here. You are the part of my brother. That lady says , No Lee Chung! I cannot accompany you. Your brother was good hearted man who sacrificed his life for the sake of this kingdom. How can I leave this kingdom? I will release these captives from the wicked  Minister while staying here. Now "Lee Chung" shows that letter to his sister in law which had been written by his brother to him. It is stated there, Lee Chung! Take my wife away from this place If I face the dire consequences! Because I don't want that she stays here alone here after me. Lee Chung's sister in law starts to weep ,reading her husband's letter. And she says to him, No matter what happens! My husband died because of this Minister, I will stay here so he may reach his catastrophe. And the inhabitants of this kingdom may get justice. "Lee Chung" becomes sentimental, seeing his sister in law's condition. And he thinks that his brother was really a great man! And he will do the same what is the wish of his sister in law. When "Lee Chung" is leaving that place of his sister in law then his friend tells him, coming there, That your elder brother's lieutenant and his companions have been imprisoned. Then Minister reaches there who had come there to make Lee Chung's sister in law captive. He murmurs to "Lee Chung", Leave this place silently otherwise the results will be worst! After a little time, "Lee Chung" gets news that his father is transforming into a zombie. And he is being treated. So he immediately goes to meet his father. But he checks , going there. That his father is in worst condition. And he has also transformed into a zombie badly. Here it seems as he is trying to say something to his son "Lee Chung". Getting the chance, Minister stabs his sword into the back of the king. And he kills him. It was the want of him. And he had been waiting for this day for several years. But no one dares to say him here, Why did you kill the king? Because king had transformed into a zombie. And Minister had a strong excuse. It had become compulsory to kill him! After a while, that place is attacked by the zombies. And "Lee Chung" begins to fight with them. And he soon leaves that place, rescuing his sister in law. Here everyone knows the reality. Before a few a years, The attack on the ship and the guns were grabbed from it. It was carried out by the Minister's orders not anyone else. Minster spread that infection through that zombie. And what was happening till today was the part of Minister's planning. It was Minister who alleged the other soldiers . Due to this , king's elder brother committed suicide. And this Minister was the root of all the tragedy of this family. On the other side, Minister calls himself a king. But other people say, That "Lee Chung" deserves to be a king!

You have no concern to be a king. Are you forgetting the words pf your brother? He always wanted you to help the people. And be like him! So why do you not stop here? So "Lee Chung" says, I cannot do it right now! So he asks "Deod-Hee", Will you accompany me to my city or not? "Deok-Hee" smiles and says, Yeah! I am coming. But "Lee Chung" plans that he will kill zombies first. He begins to make himself ready. According to Lee Chung's plan, He will gather all zombies at a place, He will set that place on fire, pouring the fuel. Even though  all zombies meet their end.
