Outbreak within the North
After 7 years and three months since Prince Chang faked his demise, we realized from Young-Shin, in a reunion with Cho Beom-Pal, that his royal highness had been investigating the resurrection plant, searching it throughout Korea. We realized that the resurrection plant had been rising in areas throughout Korea, and a mysterious vendor from the Chinese/Korean border had been promoting it to the frequent folks.
Taking Prince Chang, Seobi, and his guard north, they found an deserted village. Upon investigating, they quickly found that the village had change into contaminated.
