All of Us are Dead : A Highschool Zombie Apocalypse
All of us are Dead is another Korean horror series that is based on a Webtoon. Webtoons are South Korean Webcomics that become a rabbit hole for Netflix to make adaptations. Back in 2009, Now at Our School by Joo Dong-Geun got viral and it got a successful run that ended in 2011. This show is based on that successful webtoon. The success of horror webtoon adaptations like Sweet Home and Hellbound inspired Netflix to do more live-action adaptations of Webtoons.
K-Dramas use to be the biggest television export of South Korea. Changes happened because recently Korean Horror and thrillers becomes more prominent. With Squid Game getting SAG nominations, We can expect to see more Korean Thrillers and horrors coming to Netflix as well. Korean shows have smaller budgets so they have higher chances of renewal. Fans have more confidence in Korean Netflix Originals because most of them have closure in the end and don’t get a cancellation.

All of Us are Dead has the potential to be Netflix’s next big thing. It is a Zombie Apocalypse series with High School Students as protagonists. This formula worked well with the Anime Highschool of the Dead because teenagers are always effective as horror characters. They are inexperienced enough to be vulnerable but old enough to defend themselves from danger.
Former child actor Yoon Chan-young and House of Hummingbird star Park Ji-hoo are some of the stars on this upcoming original.
All of Us are dead is about a group of High School students who are trying to survive a Zombie Apocalypse. The University grounds are invaded by Zombies but the students are determined to survive. They have the choice between fighting for their survival or being bit and becoming undead. All of Us are dead is coming to Netflix this January 28, 2022.

I don’t like horror so much but now I realize that it’s American horror I don’t like. I started watching Korean shows about vampires and I kind of liked them. So the next step was the shows about zombies. I clearly see that Netflix thinks they have stumbled upon a cash cow with these webtoons, so they plan to milk them for all they’re worth. Everybody is talking about “All of Us Are Dead”, so I may pick this series for my late night Saturday entertainment. Saturday nights are the best nights to watch horror. LOL.

Korean Zombies are scarier than Hollywood zombies because they are more aggressive and fast.
