1. Park Ji Hoo was a high school student IRL while filming the series.

The youngest of the cast, Park Ji Hoo, a.k.a. Nam On-jo, was given the nickname of “Baby Angel” by her seniors. Then just 17 years old, she was actually enrolled as a high school student while filming All of Us Are Dead. The now 20-year-old (in Korean age) recalls the experience of juggling her work alongside being a junior in school. Ji hoo expressed, “Sometimes, I would have midterms and then go to the set. I would be there in my actual school uniform and then change into [another] school uniform.” 

Like most actors who work together, the cast of this exceptional action-thriller drama forged a special bond on set, with the rest of the older actors making sure to guide their youngest. “All the cast were very nice to me, and they would give me some advice on how to get into college, and they would talk to me about adult society,” shared Ji Hoo.

2. Yoon Chan Young kept On-jo’s name tag on the back of his phone even when he wasn't filming.

Young love always has a way of touching the audience's hearts, and the one shared between  Lee Cheong-san and On-jo is definitely no exception. Amidst the chaos of the zombie apocalypse, Cheong-san made it a point to keep his crush near him at all times so he could protect her. Staying true to his character, the young actor did the same thing, in his own way, even outside their filming location and schedules.

Chan Young revealed, “We would print out the name tag stickers of everyone. And at the time, I wanted to show Cheong-san and On-jo’s relationship. Cheong-san wanted to protect On-jo and put her before his own safety. So I wanted to make sure that I become that character. I wanted to think about On-jo every day. I think about how I could protect her, [and] be nice to her. So that’s why I stuck On-jo’s name tag on the back of my phone. I think it was there all throughout when I was filming the series." Talk about dedication!
