The Next Squid Game: All of Us Are Dead Ranks in Top 10 in 91 Countries
Move aside, Squid Game. There’s another K-Drama going viral on Netflix. Korea is quickly becoming the center of phenomenal filmmaking as zombie thriller All of Us Are Dead breaks into Netflix’s Top 10 List (Non-English TV) in 91 countries.
From Argentina to Vietnam, Netflix users can’t get enough of K-content, which is proving to have some of the most unique stories and executions in the global streaming industry. As of February 3, Netflix reports that All of Us Are Dead recorded over 124 million hours in just three days since its release. Upon its premiere, it almost immediately went to the top one spot in 29 countries. Unsurprisingly, this includes the Philippines, home of some of the biggest K-Drama stans. Meanwhile, the zombie thriller is sitting comfortably in the top 10 bracket in 62 other countries.
In fact, globally, it’s the most-watched series of the moment, beating out English-language TV series Ozark Season 4, which recorded only 93 million hours.
In case you haven’t seen the hit show yet, All of Us Are Dead is a high school zombie movie that reviewers say could rival some of the greatest zombie films in film history. It follows a group of high school students trying to survive a zombie outbreak on a locked-down campus. Add a dose of Korean comic relief and brilliantly choreographed action scenes, and you have a hit series on your hands.
In the past, we’ve gushed about Korea’s mastery over disaster movies, especially the likes of Train to Busan and The Flu. But it’s good to know the rest of the world is finally catching on to Korean disaster films. And now, critics are raving, fans are binging, and Netflix is basking in the glory of another stellar Korean thriller going viral worldwide.
The 12-episode series is now streaming on Netflix.
