A character is apparently alcoholic, but it does not really feature into the story.

The uncle is alcoholic and once or twice he takes a swig onscreen

Medical torture by scientists. Can be pretty upsetting as the character is shown screaming in pain.

There is fire, but only the monster gets hurt in it.

Nam-il appears to break or at least severely injure his leg when he jumps off a bridge to escape the police. He passes out from the pain.

A lot of people fall on their heads or get their heads stepped on by the monster.

A child dies off-screen: we see them in danger and their body is discovered. There is no visible damage to their body.

I only recall one instance of what you might call a jumpscare, and it didn't make me jump, even though I'm easily startled.

I would say yes, since there are sounds of the monster eating people

This happens to Se-joo twice. Once it is only mentioned, but the second time, it is in full view of the camera.

It is more like a secret fuckedup military hospital, not a mental hospital, but it is disturbing.

There's a long close-up of a huge biopsy needle being driven slowly into someone's neck/shoulder area while the person - who has not given his consent - screams.

The main character is called demented and implied that many think he is dumb or crazy. He is violent and takes a hostage in the pursuit of getting away from his captors.

The US Army basically gaslights the whole of Korea by saying there's a virus when there isn't one. A U.S. doctor admits this in front of Gang-du, assuming he won't understand, but then the other doctors proceed to operate on him anyway.

The scenes where the family are going around to different sewers have some flashing lights, with them swinging the flashlight around.

It is only shown for a moment, and it is not clearly masturbation. It could be just scratching or something.

Gang-du is all but stated to have some kind of developmental disability due to poor childhood nutrition. Other characters repeatedly call him stupid for his lapses in judgment. Gang-du's father chastises them for calling him stupid.

Some fighting amongst family members. They kick and hit each other while grieving.

We're told that a man's mother left for good when he was a child, and that his father was away from home much of the time due to having to work a lot. The father feels that his son was neglected and believes that the son was permanently damaged by the childhood malnutrition caused by having to take care of himself to a large extent. So it's more a question of neglect than of abuse as such.

Lots of gunshots, but I don't think any people get shot.

Hard to say what kills the people who fall into the river or are dragged under water. People go in water, people die; if it's not drowning, it's something else. There are no close-ups of people drowning, there are no underwater shots, and I'm pretty sure we don't see someone struggling to come up for air.
