Due to be released on August the 15th, promotion for epidemic film The Flu (감기) is heating up.
When an unknown virus hits a city in Korea, the impact is disastrous. With an infection rate of 3.4 persons per second, the disease initially manifests as a skin rash before fatality occurs within 36 hours. Left with little choice the city is locked down and cordoned off, with the inhabitants placed into quarantine camps. Dr. Kim In-hae (Soo-ae (수애) desperately searches for a cure to halt the outbreak, especially as her daughter Mir (Park Min-ha (박민하), and the youngster’s guardian Kang Ji-goo (Jang Hyeok (장혁) are in danger of becoming infected.
The Flu appears to be a much more serious take on the subject than last year’s enjoyable B-movie Deranged (연가시), while the inclusion of quality actors certainly makes the film one to watch out for.
