I’d argue that the protagonist stalks the main girl. She runs screaming from him and the next scene he corners her alone in her bathroom

Not abuse in the sense it's not one sided, but two characters have a heavily toxic romantic relationship, sometimes including physical violence. Also, a character treats her disabled adoptive mother badly and slaps her once.

The main character cuts his wrist in order to feed his blood to someone. He also cuts his tongue for this same reason. Another character is shown cutting her victims and herself with a seam ripper.

Not fully, but a character gets their face smashed into concrete during a fight, and its pretty gnarly. They have accelerated vampire healing, so they recover almost immediately.

Yes. The main character is a priest who often volunteers at hospitals, so a good chunk of the movie is based in them.

Several characters stab or cut themselves throughout the movie, but it's usually to use the blood in some way, as it is a vampire movie. There's one scene that can clearly be seen as self harm in the more self destructive sense though.

Its not super shakey, but there is a scene where Sang-Hyeon shows Tae-ju his vampire abilities by carrying her as he jumps around, and the camera gets a little wobbly.

Not really, there are no explicitly trans or queer characters , but a character does question if she's still a woman after she becomes infected with a disease that is typically only infectious to men.
