Writer/Director Kim Sung-soo (Beat, Scream City) delivers the viscous viral outbreak thriller Flu, debuting on DVD March 18th from CJ Entertainment. The worst epidemic ever seen is sweeping through the Seoul suburb of Bundang. Within hours after a patient dies in the hospital covered in an oozing red rash and regurgitating blood, the deadly virus sweeps the city and the body count rapidly rises. Medical professionals are in a panic over the mysteriously murderous infection and soon the government orders the military to quarantine the entire area -- no one gets in, no one gets out. Desperation and violence grip the public as the infected and non-infected struggle for life and everything begins to spiral out of control. The all-star cast includes Jang Hyuk (The Client), Su Ae (Sunny, A Family), Yoo Hae-jin (Musa-The Warrior, King and the Clown) and newcomer Park Min-ha.
Synopsis: A human trafficker is infected with an unknown virus and dies in a Bundang hospital, covered in red rashes and coughing up blood.

The medics despair over the super virus that has no known cure, but they soon find hope when they hear of a sole survivor who may have developed antibodies against this ruthless viral mutation. As medical professionals rush to find the sole individual with the potential key for a cure, fatalities rise and soon the government has no choice but to quarantine the city. Amidst the ensuing panic, wild desperation and violence, the struggle for life between the infected and non-infected begins to spiral out of control.
