Following the “Train to Busan” and “Kingdom” series, Korean zombie dramas continue to gain popularity through “All of Us Are Dead.” The difference between “All of Us Are Dead” and other zombie series is that this time, high school students become zombies. What do the zombies look like in the original webtoon “All of Us Are Dead?” As the main characters of the original webtoon have changed throughout the drama adaptation, so do the zombies.
First, the zombies in the original webtoon are far more powerful than those in the drama.
In the webtoon “All of Us Are Dead,” zombies easily break open locked doors and attack the main characters.
When the archery team members defend themselves from the zombies, the wooden doors are ineffective, so they use cabinets to build stronger barricades.
Fortunately, the door to the broadcasting room where the second-grade class 5 students are evacuated is made of iron. Nonetheless, the zombies continue to try to break through the iron door and enter.
The zombies in the Netflix dramas are not as powerful as those in the webtoon. Once the door has been closed and the people inside the classroom remain quiet, the zombies do not try to break the classroom door.
The main characters don’t have to worry too much about zombies infiltrating and attacking them once they’re inside the room.
Second, the zombies in the webtoon do not die easily.
In the webtoon, when Park Mi-jin tries to kill a single zombie in the bathroom, she attacks the zombie multiple times with sharp sticks with her friend and then burns the zombie. Despite the multiple attempts, the zombie is still alive.
The main characters in the webtoon mostly try to avoid fighting with zombies and hide from them.
In the drama “All of Us Are Dead,” zombies are relatively easy to deal with. Archery students, in particular, shoot arrows into the necks of the zombies and easily kill them.
Third, the zombies in the webtoon attack the immune students.
Unlike in the drama, the zombies in the webtoon continue to attack students who are immune to the zombie virus. For example, the main villain, Yoon Gwi-nam, continues to be bitten by zombies.
In the drama, Yoon Gwi-nam walks around freely on campus without being attacked by zombies.
