Han Gyeong-su is the only character in “All of Us Are Dead” who becomes infected with the zombie virus without being bitten by one. He has a touching friendship with Lee Chung-san up until the moment he becomes a zombie.
In the original webtoon, what kind of character was Han Gyeong-su? Let’s take a look at his character change as “All of Us Are Dead” is adapted from a webtoon to a drama.
First, Han Gyeong-su and Lee Cheong-san were good friends, but not best friends.
In the original webtoon, there is no whistle scene. Han Gyeong-su and Lee Cheong-san overcome adversity by helping each other in a group of survivors, but they are not close friends in any other way.
In the drama, however, the two are described as being very close. The scene in which Han Gyong-su visits the chicken restaurant opened by Lee Chung-san’s mother and expresses his desire to work part-time demonstrates the two’s close relationship.
Furthermore, when they are stuck in the broadcasting room booth because of Lee Na-yeon’s conspiracy, they show how close they are by sharing whistles.
The whistle eventually plays a role in driving Han Gyong-su out the window when he transforms into a zombie. The song in this whistle contains heartbreaking lyrics that bid farewell to a close friend.
Second, when it came to Lee Na-yeon in the webtoon, Han Gyong-su was the stronger character.
In the original webtoon, Lee Na-yeon, just like in the drama, is hostile towards Han Gyeong-su and says hurtful things to him. Han Gyeong-su slaps Lee Na-yeon after becoming enraged by her attitude.
In the drama, however, Choi Nam-ra is the one who slaps Lee Na-yeon for her behavior. Han Gyong-su could not get revenge on Lee Na-yeon then he becomes infected by the zombie virus that is applied to his wound by Lee Na-yeon’s handkerchief.
