All of Us Are Dead Cast & Characters on Netflix
Based on Joo Dong-Geun's renowned webtoon Now at Our School, the students at Hyosan High School have to figure out how to survive when their area is shut down.
All of Us Dead includes both the old and some new superstars. Here's what we know about All of Us Are Dead's cast.
Yoon Chan-young as Lee Cheong-san
One of the most interesting features of All Of Us Are Dead is Lee Cheong-san's connection with his neighbor and classmate On-jo, with the two often combating zombie armies together both inside and outside of Hyosan High School.
Cheong-san appears to be one of the most popular characters in Netflix's K-Drama, thanks to his enormously cheerful nature, even in the face of death.
Lee Cheong-san is played by Yoon Chan-young. Yoon Chan-young (@yooncy1) made his acting debut in 2013, and a year later, for his role in the drama Mama, he received the MBC Drama Award for Best Child Actor.
Since then, he's appeared in Dr. Romantic, Still 17, Doctor John, and Nobody Knows, among other films.
Park Ji-hu as Nam On-jo
Nam On-jo, Cheong-san's next-door neighbor and one of the more popular members of class 2-5, is the closest All Of Us Are Dead comes to having a main character in the first 12 episodes.
All Of Us Are Dead on Netflix focuses a lot on On-jo's survival strategies with her classmates while also portraying On-jo's father's attempts to save his beloved daughter.
Nam On-jo is played by Park Ji-hu. Park Ji-hu, an 18-year-old performer, is best known for her performance in the TK film House of Hummingbird.
Sweet Revenge 2 and Beautiful World are two other dramas in which she has appeared. She'll soon star alongside Kim Go-Eun in the upcoming drama Little Women.
Park Solomon as Lee Su-hyeok
If Cheong-san represents the softer side of Hysosan High, then Lee Su-hyeok is the mettle that keeps his classmates battling against All Of Us Are Dead's almost unstoppable zombie odds.
Su-hyeok, a former bully turned reformed student, is a skilled fighter who will come in useful as All Of Us Are Dead becomes more deadly.
Lee Su-hyeok is played by Park Solomon. Park Solomon, nicknamed Lomon, debuted in the dramas Bride of the Century and 4 Legendary Witches in 2014.
He's most known for his role as Ji-hoon in the 2017 film Sweet Revenge, and he also appeared in the Chinese series Lookism in 2019.
Cho Yi-Hyun As Choi Nam-Ra
Choi Nam-ra's performance in All Of Us Are Dead effectively captures the clever-yet-cold character. Nam-ra is a brilliant student, but her academic ability is overshadowed by her cold indifference to her classmates, even when many of them are eaten and blended into the series' zombie horde.
Choi Nam-ra is played by Cho Yi-Hyun. Since her 2017 debut, Cho Yi-Hyun has starred in a number of successful dramas and films, including both seasons of Hospital Playlist and the psychological thriller Metamorphosis.
She and Kim Yo-han recently won a KBS Drama Award for Best Couple for School 2021.
Ha Seung-Ri As Jang Ha-Ri
Jang Ha-ri, a senior at Hyosan High, wants to exploit her extraordinary archery abilities to get a scholarship to a prestigious sports university.
However, Ha-ri, along with several other archery trainees, finds up using her tremendous bowmanship to beat off waves of undead assailants.
Jang Ha-Ri is played by Ha Seung-Ri. In 1999, Ha Seung-ri made her acting debut in the SBS drama Trap of Youth. She was adored by the entire nation at the time for her role as the daughter of stars Shim Eun-ha and Lee Jong-won.
Yoo In-Soo As Yoon Gwi-Nam
Yoon Gwi-nam, a violent bully who cruelly harasses other Hyosan High students, is the most disliked character in All Of Us Are Dead.
Despite not being the ringleader of the bully circle at first, Gwi-nam quickly establishes himself as the show's primary antagonist (apart from the undead) when he demonstrates the sick depths to which he will go to defend his own skin.
Yoon Gwi-Nam is played by Yoo In-Soo. After Love Alarm season 1, Yoo In-Soo is back in a Netflix k-drama with All of Us Are Dead.
He's also appeared in Strong Woman Do Bong-soon, School 2017, My ID is Gangnam Beauty, and At a Distance, Spring is Green since his debut in 2017.
Lee Kyu-Hyung As Song Jae-Ik
As a detective at the Hyosan Police Station, Song Jae-ik's skepticism gradually turns to despair as he and his colleagues face the virus spread.
Song Jae-ik is played by Lee Kyu-Hyung, a legendary South Korean actor best known for his role as Yoo Han-yang in the tvN series Prison Playbook.
Kyu-Hyung (@290_83) is well-known in South Korea for his ability to play a wide range of characters and master a variety of mediums and projects, including musicals and web series.
Jeon Bae-Soo As Nam So-Ju
While heroism is certainly not in short supply across All Of Us Are Dead season 1's runtime, On-jo's father Nam So-ju stands head and shoulders above many of the series' other characters.
One of the major character arcs in All Of Us Are Dead is So-ju's fight to save his daughter and her peers as captain of the Hyosan Fire Station rescue team 1.
So-ju is played by Jeon Bae-soo, who is most known in the West for his harrowing performance in the Korean horror film The Wailing from 2016.
