Such a son would be the more legitimate than the Crown Prince Lee Chang, whose mother was a concubine. Accordingly, the King is immunized with the revival plant and thusly turns into a beast around evening time who should be limited in chains.
Kept under the control, the Prince looks for Lee Seung-hui (Kwon Bum-taek), the specialist who last treated the King. He got stunned by what he finds during the time spent researching the King’s ailment, he heads toward the Southern region of Gyeongsang with his steadfast guardian Mu-Yeong (Kim Sang-ho) to look for additional answers.
At the center, the doctor associate, Seo-bi (Bae Doona) really focuses on the patients, however, they are starving for food. Yeong-shin (Kim Sung-kyu), one of the patients holding up here, makes a stew for individuals from what he says is deer meat.
However, the meat is later revealed to be sourced from the cadaver of someone bitten by the King and all the patients quickly turn into zombies.
The next day, the magistrate of Dongnae and nephew of Lord Cho Hak-Ju, Cho Beom-pal (Jeon Seok-ho), disregards Seo-bi and Yeong-shin’s advice to cut off the head of each cadaver, leading to a night of chaos. When the Prince takes control and orders to burn the bodies of the undead, the yangbans are reluctant and choose to flee on the only boat, carrying their belongings and the corpse of a precious son.
Special troops sent from Hanyang confront the Prince, creating additional chaos. Subsequently, the Prince goes to Sangju to seek help from Lord Ahn Hyeon, his former preceptor. Investigating a village that oddly seems to be oddly well-fed in such dire times, he discovers the fate of the Dongnae’s boat; the precious son turned into a monster, the yangbans were killed or drowned and the boat was looted after stranding itself.
Awakened from his retreat by his own alarm network, Lord Ahn Hyeon (Heo Joon-ho) arrives with troops who know how to deal with the zombie crisis. The season ends with Queen Cho taking the Regency of the vacant throne, decreeing the blockade of the South, while Lord Cho Hak-Ju comes to Gyeongsang’s gate with the Army and the zombie King.
