A NEW ZOMBIE THRILLER is the first in an ambitious slate of 25 South Korean Netflix originals in 2022. A mix of high school hijinks and over-the-top zombie gore, All of Us Are Dead will bring a fresh approach to the bloody genre. Following the success of Squid Game in 2021, any new Korean show is likely to be a draw. But it looks like people are already excited about All of Us Are Dead, with its trailer accruing 11 million views in under two weeks.
The zombie series debuts its first season at 12 a.m. Pacific, 3 a.m. Eastern, and 8 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time on January 28, 2022. All of Us Are Dead premieres worldwide on Friday, January 28, 2022. As with many of its original series, Netflix is dropping all episodes on the show’s release date.
The first episode features brief appearances from Lee as a student who dishes on a rumor about a teacher at the school who is planning to kill the students who bullied his son.
Lee Jae Kyoo insisted the characters of All of Us Are Dead needed to feel as real as possible, so the cast comprises emerging talent. However, there are some familiar faces for fans of Korean shows. The main cast includes Yoon Chan-young as Chung-san Park Ji-hoo as Nam On-jo Cho Yi-Hyun as Choi Nam-ra, Park Solomon as Lee Soo-hyuk, Yoo In-soo as Yoon Gwi-Nam, Lee Yoo-mi as Lee Na-Yeon.
Viewers might recognize Lee Yoo-mi from Squid Game, where she played Ji-Yeong (or Player 240). Netflix tends to work with a small group of actors that appear in several of their productions, with All of Us Are Dead featuring Lee Kyu-Hyung (an alumnus of Stranger) and Bae Hae-sun (returning from Inspector Koo) in its supporting cast.
