Lee Na-yeon was one of the most despised characters in Netflix’s “All of Us Dead,” being dubbed “another villain” after Yoon Gwi-nam. Actress Lee Yoo-Mi, who played Lee Na-yeon, gained popularity once again following the Squid Game.
What did Lee Na-yeon look like in the original webtoon, “All of Us Are Dead”? Let’s look at the three differences between Lee Na-yeon in webtoons and dramas.
1. Lee Na-yeon did not use a handkerchief to infect Han Gyeong-su.
When I think of Lee Na-yeon from the drama All of Us Are Dead, the scene where she infects Han Gyeong-su with a handkerchief comes to mind.
In the original webtoon, Lee Na-yeon brings Han Gyeong-su a band-aid instead of a handkerchief. Poor Han Gyeong-su relaxes when Lee Na-yeon appears soft and nice to him, and applies a band-aid to his wound.
Because a handkerchief is much larger than a band-aid, it makes far more sense to effectively show zombie blood in the drama. Furthermore, filming someone wiping the blood with a handkerchief is easier than filming someone wiping the blood with a band-aid.
Second, Lee Na-yeon’s personality has changed.
Lee Na-yeon is described as a “soft character” in the original webtoon. She has a timid personality and feels guilty about what she did to Han Gyeong-su. She eventually sees Han Gyeong-su’s ghost and goes insane. She is not mentally stable, and she murders the other surviving friend and teacher.
On the other hand, Lee Na-yeon in the drama “All of Us Are Dead” actively wants to be recognized by others. As she grew up in a wealthy family, she looks down on Han Gyeong-su, who grew up in a less wealthy environment. She is also trying to make herself more powerful by taking Han Gyong-su out of the group of survivors.
Third, Lee Na-yeon’s attitude to death.
In the webtoon, Lee Na-yeon is virtually abandoned by a group of survivors and remains alone in the broadcasting room. And she continues to show her willingness to live by asking her friends for help.
Even after being caught by Yoon Gwi-nam, who rushed into the broadcasting room, she begs for help. However, she was eventually bitten by Yoon Gwi-nam and died as a result.
In the drama, unlike in the original webtoon, Lee Na-yeon hides in a classroom for a long time after being ousted by her classmates. In the end, she doesn’t care about her own life. She wants to make up for killing Han Gyong-su by bringing food and supplies to her classmates.
