Soon after its release, “All of Us Are Dead” achieved a significant milestone. It’s easy to understand why it appealed to such a large audience. A group of Hyosan high school students are the subject of this moving and heart-pounding tale, which features lots of carnage candy. This South Korean zombie drama challenges the viewer to go along for a crazy ride and accept that any character could die, in contrast to popular shows like “The Walking Dead,” which frequently avoid taking significant risks. The show strives from beginning to end for intense violence, gut-wrenching death sequences, and a reworking of the traditional zombie mythos.
The 12 episodes of the first season are both fascinating and frightening. Based on the well-known webcomic “Now At Our School” by Joo Dong-geun, director Lee Jae-kyoo creates a character-driven, immersive environment in the television version. Teenagers are allowed to take centre stage in the narrative, with adults and other authority figures mainly taking a backseat. Even when bad decisions are made that occasionally result in horrifying deaths, you genuinely care about the characters and their post-apocalyptic fate. The constant emotional stakes are the only thing that can equal the unrelenting savagery.

In Episode 2, the group suffers its first significant setback. The students take refuge inside a classroom after navigating hordes of zombies while trying to figure out what to do next. I-sak (Kim Joo-ah) and On-jo (Park Ji-hu) enjoy a private moment after dealing with another bitten pupil.
On-hand jo’s friend’s is cold when she reaches out to grab it, indicating that On-jo has been bitten and will soon turn. On-jo tries to accept the truth as the group turns on her. I-sak is thrown out a nearby window as a result of that tragic incident. On-jo grabs her friend’s hand and holds on for dear life, going against her better judgement. To emphasise the gravity of the situation, the camera switches views. I-sak, who has recently undergone transformation, grits her teeth and raises her mouth to bite her childhood closest friend. Despite how horrifying it is, I-passing sak’s sets the show’s real emotional stakes in action.

Unexpectedly, Rich Ting’s military commander Jin Seon-moo is included on this list. Seon-moo, who is in control of all activities in and around Hyosan, gives the order to drop a number of bombs on significant locations throughout the metropolitan region, including the high school. All remaining zombies will be eliminated as a result of this project.
Despite successfully escaping the area, our group is still being bombarded by debris and ash. The mission seems to have been a big success once the smoke has cleared. However, the commander’s shoulders are heavily laden due to the seriousness of the situation. He tells National Assemblywoman Park Eun-hee (Bae Hae-Sun) what he has done before returning to his office. There, he makes a final call to his loved ones, bids them farewell, and then turns a revolver on himself at his desk. It’s a disturbing sequence that emphasises the desperate situations that each character is in even more. No one escapes untouched, not psychologically, not physically, nor emotionally.

One of the greatest villains in television history is Na-yeon (Lee Yoo-mi). In Episode 3, the gang travels to the broadcasting room to meet their instructor Ms. Park once more (Lee Sang-hee). Gyeong-su (Ham Sung-min), Cheong-best san’s friend, is scratched during a zombie attack. Thankfully, it’s only a small wound and wasn’t brought on by a zombie.
Na-yeon, who has a contempt for the underprivileged, erupts and declares that Gyeong-wound su’s is probably deadly. She persuades Ms. Park to lock him up in the room next door. Na-yeon approaches Gyeong-su to apologise a little while later, but she instead smears zombie blood into his wound. He’s now contaminated. As soon as he re-joins the group, he turns and leaps in the direction of Cheong-san. Gyeong-su falls into the night and crashes to the earth below as Cheong-san avoids the attack. Another utter gut-punch that will have you yelling at your TV is his needless death.

The distance characters have to travel to find their loved ones is one of “All of Us Are Deadmost “‘s agonising elements. When the zombie outbreak occurs, Cheong-mother san’s (Lee Ji-Hyun), who owns and runs a fried chicken business, is right in the midst of Hyosan. As she travels approaching the high school on her moped, she jumps on and takes to the streets. She encounters a swarm of zombies along the route and gets off the moped.
Right as dusk falls, she finally finds her way to the school’s athletic field. She misidentifies a flesh-eater there as Cheong-san and meets a brutal, terrifying end. Her face is plagued with fear and anguish as multiple zombies devour her alive. She looks right through the screen. Later in the episode, Cheong-san discovers his mother’s dead body, which tries to devour him. If you weren’t already down, this reunion will most certainly make you feel down.
So-ju (Jeon Bae-soo), On-father, jo’s attempts to enter the high school for the duration of the first season. In Episode 11, he eventually exits the gym, but his reunion with the others is sadly cut short. But that’s a major factor in how well the show works. Anybody can pass away at any time.
A horde of zombies surrounds the party as they move through the tennis courts. Initially, So-ju deploys a number of flares to draw the zombies in a different direction, giving the gang time to flee through the rear door. So-ju quickly closes the gate and says his daughter his last-ditch goodbye. When On-look jo’s is captured on video, it is seen that So-ju has been bit on the hand. His end is nigh. He is swiftly attacked by zombies while the party keeps moving towards the nearby woods. His terrible demise ensures our characters’ survival, at the very least.

Cheong-san is firmly established in the programme as one of our primary heroes. Therefore, his sudden demise is unquestionably the most tragic event of the entire season. In Episode 11, the group is finally found and attacked by local bad guy Gwi-nam (Yoo In-soo) in an abandoned construction site. He gets bit by Gwi-nam during their fight. At first, it seems almost unbelievable. In keeping with his persona, Cheong-san climbs back up the structure to divert the remaining zombies. The group now has a chance to leave the structure.
Gwi-nam meets Cheong-san one last time after being forced from the scaffolding and eventually takes his eye as he had promised. Broken but unflinching, Cheong-san guides his foe to an elevator shaft in the area, where he captures Gwi-nam as the final explosion lights the air. The two are engulfed by flames as they fall into nothingness. Cheong-final san’s act establishes him as one of the greatest TV characters of all time and is a tremendous act of bravery.

Byeong-chan (Kim Byung-chul), a biology teacher, feels humiliated of his kid for not standing up for himself and defending himself against bullies at school. He develops the Jonas Virus to give his son courage, but a mutation leads to the zombie apocalypse instead. Byeong-chan is intended to have a redemption arc throughout the entire series, and it basically succeeds.
Byeong-chan is detained and taken to the police station in Episode 4, where detective Song Jae-ik (Lee Kyu-hyung) questions him and discovers the truth. Byeong-chan uses his final minutes on Earth to defend the station from zombie attacks, but not before revealing that his laptop, which is kept at Hyosan High, has the only antidote that is currently available. It’s a startling death once more. The audience expects Byeong-chan will ultimately play a crucial role in preserving humanity. Byeong-chan changes into a flesh-hungry corpse as Jae-ik watches on. After this point, the stakes could not be higher.
Sheer empathy is Ms. Park’s (Lee Sang-hee) downfall. As soon as Na-actual yeon’s self is revealed, she and her pupil exit the broadcasting room. Although it seems as though they both meet their end right away to the audience, their fates are left unresolved until Episode 8’s series of flashbacks.
Following the events of Episode 3, both escape only to be quickly overrun by zombies. Tragically, Ms. Park gives up her life so Na-yeon can get away into another classroom. Even as zombies devour her flesh, she offers a few last words of wisdom about humanity. Because Ms. Park served as a moral compass and a reminder that you don’t have to let the outside world corrupt you, her passing is horrible. There is always an opportunity to make amends and establish one’s value. But we’ll never completely comprehend or see the potential effects of her character on the group. Fairness for Ms. Park!
On the roof of Hyosan High early on, Chul-soo (Ahn Ji-ho) consoles classmate Eun-ji (Oh Hye-soo). Both were bullied by Gwi-nam, and their common trauma helped them to form a connection. A swarm of undead storms the field below as Eun-ji teeters on the edge and considers plunging to end her suffering. She recoils in disbelief from the ledge.
Eun-ji plans to enter the classrooms below to search for and destroy as many iPhones as she can in order to stop a blackmail film from being posted online. Chul-soo refuses to accompany her despite her best efforts to persuade him to. In episode 9, they cross paths once more at the military installation, but it’s not a joyful reunion. In front of the soldiers and other survivors, Eun-ji attacks her companion as an act of hatred. Chul-soo is swiftly restrained, and she passes away in agony. Before he can turn and spread the illness farther, soldiers begin firing on him.
