Lee Jae-kyoo, the director of the hit Netflix series All Of Us Are Dead, has explained the wide kinds of zombies that feature in the show. A high school becomes the epicenter of a zombie plague epidemic in this Korean drama. Students that are locked in the school must either battle their escape out or become diseased. On January 28, 2022, Netflix debuted All Of Us Are Dead, which has subsequently become a blockbuster hit.
All Of Us Are Dead appears to be joining the ranks of Netflix’s last Korean original, Squid Game, which peaked at number first on Netflix in just ten days. Since its launch, All Of Us Are Dead has racked up approximately 125 million hours of viewing on Netflix’s non-English series list in its first week of airing. Since then, the series has hit the charts in a number of nations, including the United Kingdom, Japan, Brazil, Thailand, and France.
Lee highlighted the numerous varieties of zombies that appear in All Of Us Are Dead and why there are variances in the disease in a recent conversation with The Korea Times to analyze the series’ popularity. For example, after being transformed into a zombie, the series’ villain, Gwi-nam, retains his collective brain. Lee has stated that he made the decision to make this figure “immortal.” Similarly, Lee chose to make Nam-ra a “immune” character, as she stays human but gets zombie strength. Nam-ra has greater antibodies than others, according to Lee. Lee claims that he incorporated the various forms of the disease so that he might take All Of Us Are Dead in distinct ways in the future.
An interesting fact was mentioned by Lee that the many varieties were inspired by how the COVID-19 epidemic impacted the world today. The director got the concept after realizing that “even if people dine together in a small room, some could get sick whereas others test clean.” Lee continued, “I imagined that a zombie virus might also have such variations where people aren’t 100 percent afflicted.”
Given the aforementioned exploiting these variables to carry the tale in different areas, the possibility of an All Of Us Are Dead season 2 is an open question. As for now, Lee appears undecided about a second season, but supporters of the new show may be pleased to learn that Lee has included features in All Of Us Are Dead season 1 that will be extended in seasons to come. Because of the series’ prominence, it’s anticipated that a new season will be announced relatively soon. In the meantime, viewers can revisit All Of Us Are Dead to see whether they can spot the hints Lee has left for future seasons.
