A new series from Korea has been available on Netflix since January 28, 2022: “All Of Us Are Dead“. It has been the world’s most-streamed non-English language for two weeks Netflix series. It is also on the road to success in Germany. But could it be as successful as “Squid Game”?
Netflix series from Korea tops the charts
In the new Netflix series All Of Us Are Dead, a zombie virus is invading a high school. Numerous students are cooped up and have to escape quickly in order not to turn into zombies themselves. A plot that is apparently convincing: The title is number one in the streaming charts of all non-English Netflix series worldwide for the third time in a row (from February 7th to 13th, 2022):

“All Of Us Are Dead”: Promising recipe for success?
The Korean title could have global appeal due to the following components: drama and horror are present, action and haunting violence are on display. We already know that from “Squid Game”. In addition, the story is easy to understand and has the potential to lure us out of our everyday lives. Moral dilemmas are also indicated in the trailer alone.
Some viewers explain that if you like “Squid Game”, you will also like “All Of Us Are Dead”. The series is another masterpiece from Korea:
“All Of Us Are Dead, Squid Game and Sweet Home prove Netflix Korea is at a whole new level.”
So such as Twitter user @MOONBAEE.
“All of Us Are Dead is another masterpiece in a series created by South Korea. She blends drama, comedy, horror, thriller and action so well throughout the 12 episodes. Also, the characters are so well written that you feel connected even when you know you’re going to lose them.”

This “Squid Game” actress
Lee Yoo-Mi, who played Ji-Yeong in Squid Game and sacrificed herself for the life of Sae-Byeok, is in All Of Us Are Dead.
Other contributors include:
- Harrison Xu as Chung San
- Victoria Grace as On-Jo
- Darren Keilan as Lee Su Hyeok
- Lisa Yamada as Hyo Ryeong
So far, All Of Us Are Dead has got off to a strong start. Will it continue to run as phenomenally as “Squid Game”? We can neither say nor rule that out at the moment. But we mustn’t forget how Phenomenally successful “Squid Game” was: The series was number one in the streaming charts for a full nine weeks and was streamed more than 448,000,000 hours in the second week. “All Of Us Are Dead” has “only” managed a maximum of 236,2300 hours in week two.
Nevertheless, one thing is clear: the new Netflix series at least comes with all the prerequisites for another successful title on the streaming service.
