He is dating Yeon-Joo (Kim Joo-Hyun), while working at the local nuclear power plant. Meanwhile, Pyung-Sub (Jung Jin-Young) works at the same nuclear power plant. He is worried about conditions there, but nobody in the government listens to him. An earthquake strikes the small town where Jae-Hyeok lives and causes explosions at the nuclear power plant.

Viewing Notes

A little too melodramatic for my tastes coupled with me saying repeatedly “that’s not how any of this works.” Still, I enjoy a good disaster movie!
