All of Us Are Dead premiered on Netflix on January 28. The series tells the story of a group of students who get stuck in a high school campus in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
Ji-hu played the role of Nam On-jo, a student of Class 2-5 and the childhood friend of Lee Cheong-san, played by Chan-young. Meanwhile, Yi-hyun portrayed the role of Choi Nam-ra, the president of Class 2-5. Solomon portrayed the role of Lee Su-hyeok, a former delinquent and a student of Class 2-5.
The series made it to the Top 10 TV series of Netflix in 91 countries after it premiered. It also became the number one series in the Top 10 (Non-English TV) list in 29 countries.
According to Netflix, All of Us Are Dead gained around 124.79 million hours of views within three days since it premiered.
In an interview with The Korea Herald in February, series director Lee Jae-kyoo shared that he is hoping for a second season.
"Many directions, settings and scenes were intentionally produced to expand the story into an additional season, including the introduction of the new races of zombies - immune and immortal," he said in the interview.
"If the first season can be seen as having presented humanity‘s survival, the next season can talk about the survival of zombies. I hope to present viewers with another season," he added.
The director also remarked that he hoped the series would also encourage viewers to make personal reflections.
"The origin of [the] zombie virus was introduced in the series as an attempt to highlight the people who take responsibility and those who do not when an event, such as school violence, occurs. Though it is another zombie action thriller, I thought the series provides the viewers with a chance to think about what kind of people they are,” he said.
