Upcoming Netflix original Korean series ‘All of Us Are Dead’ casts Lee Chae-eun, Kim Bo-yoon

Rising stars Lee Chae-eun and Kim Bo-yoon are confirmed to join the lineup of young cast in Netflix’s upcoming zombie-themed series All of Us Are Dead.

All of Us Are Dead follows a group of high school students who get trapped inside their school in the midst of a zombie outbreak. It revolves around how they struggle to escape and brave through life-and-death situations. Little do they know, a number of people outside their institution are also going through extreme lengths to save them. The drama is adapted from the well-received 2009 webtoon “Now at Our School” by Joo Dong-geun.

Lee Chae-eun has signed up to play Hee-soo, a character who will work closely with the protagonists in the drama. After making her film debut as a child star in 2011, Lee went on to appear in many movies such as The Last Princess (2016) and The Mimic (2017). This is the most promising year for Lee yet as she is set to portray her first-ever lead role in the thriller film Executioner’s Daughter, while the actress’ involvement in the upcoming drama will mark her small-screen debut.

Meanwhile, Kim Bo-yoon will transform into Seo Hyo-ryung, a beautiful student who is expected to show grace under pressure. Kim is also a child actress who made her official drama debut in My Daughter, Geum Sa-wol (2015–2016). Since then, she has taken part in popular series, which include Black (2017), Miss Hammurabi (2018), Mr. Sunshine (2018), At Eighteen (2019), and most recently, SBS’s Good Casting (2020).

Lee and Kim will be performing alongside previously announced cast members Yoon Chan-young (Nobody Knows), Park Ji-hoo (Beautiful World), Jo Yi-hyun (How to Buy a Friend), Yoo In-soo (Chocolate), Park Solomon (Sweet Revenge), Oh Hee-joon (Was it Love?), and Woo Ji-hyun (A Piece of Your Mind).

All of Us Are Dead is written by screenwriter Chun Sung-il of Your Honor (2018) and upcoming drama LUCA (2020) and is helmed by directors Lee Jae-kyu of The King 2hearts (2012) and Kim Nam-soo. The drama is scheduled to stream on Netflix in the first half of 2021 across 190 countries worldwide.
