Hungry City/City of the Famished (배고픈 자들의 도시) is a Supernatural Action Comedy Korean Webtoon by Eucalyp and Hwi, originally published by Daum.

Jerome, a vampire, wakes up from a long sleep in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Even though zombies pose no threat to him, their rotten blood isn't suited for drinking. Hungry and desperate to find living humans, he encounters Mina. To save her own life, she offers him a deal: in exchange for protection, she will lead him to a safe zone full of other survivors.

Provides examples of:

  • Anti-Hero: Mina is prepared to use the lives of other humans as a bargaining chip to save her own. She also tries to leave George behind, even after he rescued her.
  • Burn the Undead: One of the methods effective at killing zombies is burning them.
  • Classical Movie Vampire: Jerome, complete with a standard cape, a coffin to sleep in, and a surname referencing both Bram Stoker and Dracula.
  • Daywalking Vampire: Jerome, but he still hates the sunlight and other traditional vampire weaknesses, even though they don't harm him.
  • Deal with the Devil: A deal with a vampire in this case. Mina offers to guide Jerome to other survivors in exchange for sparing her life and protecting her.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: The world is full of wandering zombie hordes, and human survivors are few and far between.
