All of Us Are Dead star Lomon (Park Solomon) showed off his affection towards his co-star Cho Yi Hyun.

In an interview on February 10th, Lomon was asked to pick a co-star who had the best chemistry with him. He contemplated at first but soon chose Cho Yi Hyun, who played his love interest in the show. He said, “Cho Yi Hyun and I are of the same age, and we have worked together in a show prior to this. I feel a deep bond with her, partly because we are of the same age.”

When asked about what was the most impressive scene in the show, he replied, “In the scene where Nam Ra turns into a zombie, she tries to bite my wrist. I thought that scene made Nam Ra really cool because it shows how much she restrained her desires of eating her human friend.” Lomon also revealed that he first met Cho Yi Hyun while shooting a web drama series called Sweet Revenge. He explained, “After Sweet Revenge, I attended the preview of the film she had starred in. When we first met for All of Us Are Dead, she did not recognize me. I get it, as it was long ago, and we had only met briefly.”

In addition, Lomon shared his first impression of Cho Yi Hyun, saying, “When I first saw her, she was starring in Hospital Playlist. So I was glad to see Yun Bok (Cho Yi Hyun’s character in Hospital Playlist).” He added, “While I was filming All of Us Are Dead, I tried to keep a distance from her to portray the shy awkwardness between Nam Ra and Soo Hyuk.”

The actor also discussed his unique, multicultural background. He explained, “I was born in Uzbekistan, and I am proud of it because I am a descendent of Koryeo people, which makes me ethnically Korean.” (They are ethnic Koreans who have traditionally lived in post-Soviet states.) He continued, “I was raised and educated in Korea, so I didn’t feel that I was different because I was from a multicultural family.”

Meanwhile, Lomon is currently working on his next upcoming drama Third Person Plural opposite Shin Ye Eun.
