All of Us Are Dead is a Netflix original series about a group of kids waiting to be rescued after a zombie virus breaks out at their high school. The show debuted on Netflix on January 28th and quickly soared to the top of the charts and stayed there for a whopping 15 days, according to Flix Patrol.
In this interview, we asked the cast of All of Us Are Dead if they are feeling the hype and what their thoughts are about their onscreen romance.
Q1. Your series smashed Netflix records for the biggest viewing week ever. How do you feel about all the success? Did you see it coming?
Park Ji Hoo: I didn’t expect this show to be this popular at all. I’m so glad and grateful that many enjoyed the show. I’m wildly happy because all of us, including the cast and crew, did put our heart and soul into creating the show. It really pays off for all the effort.
Lomon: I’m so glad and thankful for everyone who loves our show All of Us Are Dead. I finished the script in one sitting and I knew that it would do well once I heard that director Lee Jae Kyu was in it. Plus, with Netflix in the game, I knew that it would work out and do good.
Q2. What was the biggest challenge about taking on your roles?
Cho Yi Hyun: I didn’t get a grip of the semi-zombie role at first, but the director helped me with it a lot, and I’m happy that it turned out great. I’m also glad that many liked my role although it was a tough character to play. I’m pretty happy with what we have on film.
Yoon Chan Young: The whole filming process wasn’t easy, but it was definitely fun. I thought to myself, “Wow, I had a really good time,” after spending days and nights filming the show. But I never got used to doing the action scenes where I had to actually hit someone. The show needed such scenes, but it was still hard for me to do it. I was like, “Am I doing the right thing?” So, the actor around me had to come up to me and say, “Don’t worry about it. Let’s just get it done at once.” They really helped me and encouraged me during the process.
