The show takes viewers on an intense journey as participants navigate a harrowing zombie attack in Seoul, Korea, with only a fraction making it to safety.

The survival challenge spans eight compelling episodes, immersing contestants in a meticulously crafted zombie apocalypse simulation filled with daunting obstacles and intricate quests. The ultimate objective is to reach the evacuation ship stationed at Incheon’s Wolmi Island, located a 30-minute drive away from their starting point in Hongdae, Seoul.

Tragedy strikes for Noh Hong-chul, Park Na-rae, Yoo Hee-kwan, Jonathan, and Kwachu Hyeong, as they do not make it through the challenging ordeal.

The climactic scenes of the finale depict the surviving contestants' daring efforts to reach safety. Their resourcefulness is put to the test as they employ a makeshift flotation device crafted from large containers found on a shipping dock. Overcoming obstacles, including zombie threats and the struggle to climb aboard, adds to the suspenseful atmosphere.

In a surprising turn of events, a dramatic rescue involving a giant bus-turned-boat comes to their aid, allowing the trio of Dex, Patricia, and Lee to escape the encroaching zombie horde. The revelation that the simulation lasted a staggering 61 hours underscores the intensity of their survival journey.

The series concludes on an intriguing note, teasing a potential time jump to a year later in a Seoul still grappling with zombie infestation.
