“All Of Us Are Dead” Tops Netflix Chart
The recently released South Korean zombie drama “All Of Us Are Dead” has led to the country setting a new record on Netflix in the US.
‘Dead’ follows a group of high school students who find themselves trapped on campus as a zombie apocalypse spreads like wildfire. The series topped the charts on Netflix in over 25 countries by January 31st and toped the Daily Top 10 list on U.S. Netflix on Friday.
This makes it the second non-English-language series to reach that position following “Squid Game” and makes Korea now the first country to place multiple series, not in the English language at the top of the streamer’s charts.
The series took the top spot on its seventh day of release, a bit behind “Squid Game” which did so on its fourth day of release. U.S. viewership of Korean dramas has risen by over 200% between 2019 and 2021. Netflix will release over 20 original Korean dramas and films this year.
