      DOOMSDAY BOOK 1. Desire only leads to a horrific end; < A BRAVE NEW WORLD > 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. DOOMSDAY BOOK 2.

The robot's manufacturer, UR International, believes this phenomenon to be a threat to mankind and decides to terminate the robot. But the other monks call this robot by the name of In-myeong and revere him, standing against the corporation's decision. Just as the UR guns are pointed to In-myeong, a UR engineer named PARK Do-won (KIM Kang-woo) goes against their orders and stands before In-myeong to protect him. DOOMSDAY BOOK 3. After that fateful day, be thankful for being alive! The second birth of mankind! < HAPPY BIRTHDAY > PARK Min-seo (JIN Jee-hee) is a young grade school student who accidentally breaks her billiards-obsessed father's favorite pool ball.
