Finished the 2 seasons. I thought I didn't have anything on Netflix worth watching before the subscription expires.
Definitely a more subdued zombie horror show, not too dramatic or hopeless as the zombie outbreak - they manage to contain it within their own mythos and sound world building:
The zombies in this show -
(still a mystery. What we got so far. I like how they learned it over the series such as season 2 where we found out zombies can come out during the day time)
*The plant of resurrection can bring back a zombie.
*The worms on the plant get ingested or go through zombie bites - spread the disease. Though, we don't know why cooking a zombie corpse and eating it made everyone infected (which was the first source of outbreak at the Dongnae clinic)
The zombies fear high temperature, fire, and water. The worm and plant prefers colder climates. If you get bitten, you can get the worms out by submerging yourself in water. This before you die though.
The show also features politics and a clash of customs such as gender roles (the queen and her father revealing challenges that only a male heir can come into power) and how folks deal with death. The nobles didn't like burning or beheading the dead as they see it as desecration of the dead.
Old Man Dream: Fun fact about The Rescuers: It has a dirty little secret you can find in older releases of the movie. (NSFW, as a heads up)

Taka: Didn't see anything until I read the description and comments. It goes by really fast. Edit: Someone really sneak in a picture. Edit 2: Tried pausing to find it. It's harder to track compared to REZERO's IF pictures

Old Man Dream: Set the playback speed on the video to 0.25x. Should make it easier to get a good pause on one of the two naughty bits. Both appear around 0:19ish in the video.
