The main character of the story. An isolated, lonely teenager who is forced to move when his family dies in a traffic accident. He is eighteen years old and stopped going to high school due to unknown reasons. He spends his time trolling and tricking on internet, as well as playing various RPGs. He sold his old house and moved into Green Home apartments (room 1410) because the money left by his deceased family was insufficient for him to survive as an isolated person. He then proceeds to choose October 25th as the to date to commit suicide after watching the last episode of his favourite series Maria From the Sky! After the apocalypse breaks out, he shows early symptoms of monsterization such as nosebleed and fainting. He is left in a coma during two days, only to discover the current situation of the world. Throughout the story, he seems to have a hidden obsession with being the hero that involves his past, desire used by his inner monster as a temptation. However, he managed to avoid turning into a monster by discovering its deception.
A girl who recently moved into Green Home apartments (room 1510) the same day as Hyun. She is a bass player, and she normally annoys neighbours with her instrument, thing which she deeply regrets. When the apocalypse breaks out, she is almost attacked by Wendigo. Then, she helps to keep guard to a fainted Hyun along with Wook. When she gets tired of not knowing what is going on, she goes to check what is happening and encounters Jayhun. She seemed to have been in love with a boy named Haerang.
A Korean teacher who is also a devout Christian. He lives in room 1506, and is referred by Jisu as gentle and good looking. After the apocalypse, he goes out to help people with his sword. It is later revealed that he cut "Half-cut head"'s head.
Security Guard Edit
Status: Unknown/possibly monsterized
The security guard of the apartment complex Hyun Cha lives in. He was seen in the first chapter when Hyun was moving into his apartment and also in a flashback of Jisu's move into the apartment. He is a very friendly man, but also claims that he isn't treated very well by other people; we can assume his desire is respect. He had a nosebleed (ch 1) and disappeared once the apocalypse began, so we can also assume he turned into a monster.
He is referred to as "Mr. Mobster" by almost everyone in the building. He is fierce-looking and he appears to have a gangster manner. However, he calls himself a "good fella". When the apocalypse broke out, he encountered Hyun who was sacred from some noises, he threatened Hyun. He then checks what caused the sounds only to find a confused Jisu. He commends Jisu watching Hyun while he goes to see what happened. He is part of the Helping Squad.
A young girl, who is Hyuk's little sister. She is quite childlike and even a liar. She is part of the Helping Squad. She secretly smokes on the daily.
A young boy, who is Eun's big brother. He is carefree but rather smart. He maintained a chat with Hyun throught internet with the nick of "crewcrew". He is part of the Helping Squad.
Status: Unknown (Presumed Dead)
Its real name is unknown. Its arms are long deformed claws that appear to have lost their skin. Its face is in the middle of disfigurement. In spite of not having too many time to show its abilities, it seemed to have superhuman strength when she nearly broke Jisu's door.
"A... AH... SOM ...THI... TO... E EAT ...?" -"Wendigo".
She was the girl next door to Hyun. She wanted to be an actress and we see her talking to her mother about it. It seemed that her current manager had forced her to follow a strict diet, a matter of which she constantly complained about. As a result, her inner monster could have offered her to eat everything she wanted to without getting fat. She throws itself from the window of the 15th floor. Later in another episode, she still appears lying on the floor despite having been there for days. This could indicate that, if the monsterization is not completed, the infected human can die along with their inner monster.
"Half-cut head" / No EyesEdit
Its real name is unknown. Its shirt appears to be ripped like half of its chest skin. In later episodes, it is discovered that the one who cut its face was Jayhun with his sword.
