Judged as stimulating with zombie subjects.

MBC 2 part drama "I Am Alive" was ruled out for teenagers.

Led by actors Baek Do-bin and Jeon Seon-kyeong, "I Am Alive" is a horror drama about zombies. The MBC review board decided that this movie was not for under-aged youths because of the stimulating theme and special effects as well as horrific scenes. The board said, "It was already rated as not for those below 19 last month but there has been no requests for re-judgment".

It is very exceptional for a ground-wave drama to be ruled as overrated. Drama "Friends - Our Legend" was once adult rated in the past. An MBC official said, "As it is the first time a zombie movie is being attempted in this country, it is most likely that it will sent out the way it is rather than having it leveled down".

Dramas that have been adult rated must put up the '19' sign on the right hand corner of the screen and give a warning to the viewers before viewing. Some parts could also be censored.

The 1st and 2nd episode of "I Am Alive" will be broadcasted on the 11th of December.
