The acclaimed Korean sci-fi film from directors Kim Jee-woon ('I Saw the Devil') and Yim Pil-sung is planned for Blu-ray in December.
In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA has revealed 'Doomsday Book' is coming to Blu-ray on December 11.
Yoon Seok-woo (Ryoo 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 (Koh 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.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
