(Episode 1) Do not seek death. Death will find you. (The Republic of Kochenia) Doctor! What’s going on? The rebels will be here in two hours, so we were ordered to move to the Revesk camp. We didn’t operate on the child yet. Did you transfer her? Well, no. She is still inside. What? There is a high risk that she’ll die of hypovolemic shock during the transfer. Still, we can’t leave her behind. I’ll operate on her and take her. No. It’s impossible to do the surgery alone without an anesthesiologist or assistants. I can do it. What are you doing? We need to go. Please leave a car behind for me. I’ll go later. There’s a child I must operate on. Are you out of your mind? Rebels will not spare children or doctors. Two weeks ago… Seriously! You talk way too much. I said go. Fine, it’s your choice, your problem. Don’t worry, I won’t die. What are you doing? Go. I wish you luck, Dr. Park. Don’t look at me like I’m dead already. And I don’t need luck for this. See you later. Entrance hole in the abdomen. High probability that it pierced the liver. The bullet is lodged under the diaphragm where the pulmonary vein meets the hepatic vein. Excessive bleeding likely due to damage to the venae cava inferior and the hepatic vein. Remove the liver and the peritoneum for liver mobilization. Scalpel. That’s right. It’s just me. We’ve reached the hospital. Bullet in the venae cava inferior and hepatic vein. That means excessive bleeding, as predicted. Insufficient blood. Infusion not possible without anesthesia. Which means I have to do Pringle’s Maneuver. Control the bleeding with a clamp. Bleeding under control. Back to removing the bullet. Bullet removed. Suture the wound. Let’s go. Hang in there a little longer. Your name is… Let’s just say it’s Yeonghui. Hang in there, Yeonghui. It is abandoned. It looks like everyone got out… I’m a volunteer civilian doctor from Munich Hospital. For humanitarian purposes, let the child and I go. On your knees! Please, let us go. Get down, or we will fire. If you let us go… I’ll let you walk out on your own. And if we don’t? This is your last chance. Let the child and I go. I am a vampire. More precisely, I am infected with the VBT-01 Virus. VBT-01 is an incurable virus with an unknown origin that has been passed down for generations. This virus invigorates telomerase and significantly stunts human aging and permits one to live for about 300 years. If an adult is infected, they stop aging immediately. A child stops growing five to six years after being infected, and they maintain that status after that. Those infected have physical abilities greater than that of humans and have self-regenerative abilities. But sunlight at dawn and strong UV light are fatal. And they thirst for blood so much that it hurts. I am not human. I exist in between life and death. (Moore County in Tennessee, 1979) Trick or treat. Trick or treat. Trick or treat. You are so late, Daniel. I had a cold. I took some medicine and I fell asleep. And I just woke up. Okay. Just a moment. Hurry home. – Thank you, Mr. Park. / – You’re welcome. No! Sleep well, my baby, my sweet baby You shouldn’t have done anything stupid. Not run away from me. Or recklessly try to fight me. Where are Seonyeong and Jason? Where is Jason? Kill me. Just kill me, and let my wife and Jason go. I am asking you a final favor as a friend. I didn’t come to this countryside to do you a favor. Be smart. We must control it now, before the worst comes. Whatever happens, I’m sure it’s better than what you will do in the future. Do you still think this is just for me? Fine. I agree with what you say and think, so let my wife and child go. I’m even more offended now. You’ll respect me in exchange for your family’s life? Please! Please let them go! They have nothing to do with you. Sadly, they do. There is a saying that I didn’t get before, but I do now. Rather than being a vague friend, be a clear enemy. Let’s go together, honey. No, this is best. This is the last thing I can do for all of us. Please make sure Jason doesn’t live like us. I can’t do it alone. It’s impossible without you. Jason will do it in my stead. Help him out. Honey. I’m sorry. It’s daddy’s fault. But daddy believes you’ll be able to save yourself. (Jeju Island, 1994) Come on. Eat something. You feel trapped, right? Hang in there. I’ll let you go once you’re healed. You’re lucky, though. You have somewhere to go to once you get out. Jisang. Time for breakfast. You hardly speak lately. What is there to talk about? I’m going to town. – Why? / – I need a new workbook. I’ll get it tomorrow when I’m out. Don’t worry, nothing will happen. Okay. Go then. Hey. Your medicine. Don’t forget to take it. Take one before you get to town, okay? – The books are here. / – Put them down there. You should’ve been more careful. Look at that blood. Goodness. When solving for maximum or minimum sine or cosine, you must decide if you’ll make sine or cosine the x. If that’s too difficult, then… Why are so distracted? Park Jisang. If I’m going to be alone all the time, what’s the point of studying? I can’t go to school, so what’s the point? Jisang. You’re studying so that you can live comfortably among people one day. It’s also so you’ll know everything about yourself. I know I can never live comfortably. And I am fully aware of myself. You’ve done well so far, and you’ll continue to. You really think that? – Yes. / – Why do you only believe what you want to believe? I know I can never live comfortably. And I am fully aware of myself. You brat! Don’t you hear us honking? Apologize right now! What a rude little brat. How dare you glare at an adult like that? What? You ducked? What the… You little runt. Hey! You’re so annoying. It’s true. This kid is Jet Li. Or Wong Fei-hung! Give me a break! If you got beaten up, frame someone somewhat believable. He’s just a kid. I’m losing my mind here. Do you feel better after showing off your strength? They weren’t much of a challenge. I think I found my calling. I can make money by showing off my strength a little. And I can live doing anything I want. Do you think that will make you happy? Yes. Anything will be better than my life now. Please! Use that strength that you have to face against yourself. You can save… I have faith that you can save yourself with your abilities. I know, it’s a cool line. But I’m 16 now, and I know nothing about my father who left such inspiring last words. So it doesn’t really get to me. I’ll tell you everything once you’re ready to handle it all. Whatever it is, I’m sure I won’t be able to handle it. I… really want to become human. But there is zero hope. And because I have no hope, I always get angry. You should never have had me. Then it wouldn’t hurt so much or be so frustrating. (Massachusetts General Hospital) What do you think when you find a hidden tumor like this? I think the patient’s chance of survival is a lot better than we originally anticipated. Really? I think it’s like a woman who is three hours late for a date. A pancreatic uncinate process tumor is like fighting a ghost. So we’re like the Ghostbusters. The ghosts are gone. Wrap it up, Busters. Suture. Hello? Where are you? It really is like a girlfriend who’s three hours late. Fine. Just observe for now. No, you need to do something first. Of course you won’t grant my wish regardless of what it is, right? I said I wanted to go to Hawaii. Why did we come here? Your uncle sent us here. Look around. Look how nice it is. Why did Uncle… I want to go to the beach and go shopping. We can go to Hawaii another time. Let’s breathe in all this fresh air today. Look at this flower. It’s so pretty. The color is beautiful. How cute. Come here. Look how pretty it is. Chaeun, come look at this. – Chaeun! / – Chaeun! – Chaeun! / – Chaeun! Chaeun! – Chaeun! / – Chaeun! Got you. Don’t worry. I’m just going to hold you. – Chaeun! / – Chaeun! – Chaeun! / – Chaeun! An innocent vampire, Park Hyeonseo. Your son is special. Through Jason, I’ll prove that I’m right. Chaeun! Chaeun! Where am I? I’m still in the woods. I’m still really in a daze. Am I dreaming? It’s because I gave you an herbal painkiller. It should help with the pain. What are you? Are you like a spirit that lives in the woods? Well, you can say that, I guess. Why does a spirit speak so vaguely? There are vague spirits, too. Earlier, when those wolves attacked, I prayed to heaven. My prayers must have been heard. I prayed for someone to appear and save me. Thank you. Thank you so much. – Yoo Chaeun! / – Yoo Chaeun! Yoo Chaeun! I need to go now. Don’t walk around in the woods alone. I won’t appear every time you pray to heaven. Yoo Chaeun! – You are Chaeun, right? / – Yes, that’s me. Where are my mom and dad? You’re back. Did something happen? You did a good thing. Is that girl okay? So why did you feel strange? I don’t know. I’ve never felt like that before. But I don’t think it’s a bad thing. That’s good enough. Bring me the kid. No, just the kid. Thank you. Who are you? Jisang! Run! Go! Mom! Jisang. Close your eyes! I shouldn’t have brought you here. Let’s go to the hospital, Mom. No, Jisang. I won’t… make it. What was in that syringe? Jisang. Run far away. As far as you can. Who were they? Who were those rats? Run away. Far away. Mom. But you need to do something first. Do it. I can’t do it. Listen to me. You must do it. If you leave me alone others may get infected. Infected? What do you mean? You have to do it. And your painting… Don’t forget… your painting. No, Mom. You can make it. You will. Hang in there, please. I’m sorry. I’m… so sorry. I love you so very much, my son. Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom! Jisang. You can become human as the Beast became a handsome prince. If you’re watching this, that means something very bad has happened. I wish you would never need to watch this. But if you are, listen to what I’m about to say. (Civil war in Republic of Kochenia) I don’t know where the bullets are flying from! We’re not military doctors. Why are we in this mess? They’re short on military doctors! Just accept it as our fate! At least give us a gun then! Stop shooting already! Hello? – Hey, it’s me. / – What? Are you playing a video game? That gunfire sounds so real. What? Game? I don’t have time for this. Hang up! Wait! Wait! I finally found out where those documents originated from. Where? Taemin Cancer Center in Korea. More specifically, their secure database. – Help me move him. / – Okay. Come here! What will you do now? Hello? Are you okay? Hey. Hello? She’s arrogant, but she’s a skilled surgeon. A difference in skill is a difference in perspective? He’s so young… – Hey. / – “Chief Park,” not “Hey.” I’ll stomp on you good soon. You’ll see. The great and mighty Dr. Lee Jaeuk. It piques my interest. Forget the surgery. Look at how he talks. What a jerk. – He won’t make it! / – Continue the transfusion! Move out of the way. I’ll do it.
