What K-dramas To Watch After “All Of Us Are Dead”

All Of Us Are Dead (2022)

  • Cast: Park Ji-hu, Yoon Chan-young, Cho Yi-hyun, Park Solomon
  • Genre: Coming-of-age; Horror; Zombie apocalypse
  • No. of Episodes: 12
  • Where To Watch: Netflix

A high school becomes ground zero for a zombie virus outbreak. Trapped students must fight their way out or turn into one of the rabid infected.

 

Hindi ako mahilig sa mga ganitong genre na horror or zombie apocalypse, kaya ko lang naman ito pinanuod kasi pinag-uusapan siya ng karamihan. Nung February 10 ko lang ito napanuod kahit nasa Netflix na siya noong January 28 pa. Dalawang araw ko natapos yung 12 episodes sinasabay ko ang panunuod habang nagwowork ako. Multi-tasking di ba? So, ano masasabi ko sa series na ito? Una, nalaman ko na kung bakit naging crush ng kapatid ko si Park Solomon. Kung teenager pa lang ako malamang ganun din yung feeling ko. Hindi naman ako nabored sa panunuod. May pagkakataon na may kaba factor akong nararamdaman, minsan naman napapaisip ako kung ano kaya ang gagawin ko kung ako yung nasa sitwasyon ng mga estudyante. Pero feeling ko kung andun ako malamang naging zombie na din ako. May mga scenes din na nagpaantig ng puso ko wag ko na lang sabihin ano ang mga yun para walang spoiler. Pero yung mensahe about friendship, sacrifice, father’s love yun talaga yung tumatagos sa puso. Wala naman ako problema sa aktingan ng mga bida at supporting roles, madaming magagaling at meron din naman na ok lang pwede na. May mga mamahalin at kaiinisan kang karakter at may magpapaluha din sa’yo.

 

Overall K-feels – I mostly enjoyed All of Us Are Dead from the beginning until the end. The thrilling moments and in between relief of breath are exciting for me. Even though the drama had its fair share of plot holes, all in all, it was a one hell of a thrilling ride.

 

In need of something new to check out after binging All of Us Are Dead? If you enjoyed All Of Us Are Dead you’ll probably appreciate these series as well.

 

Happiness (2021)

  • Cast: Han Hyo-joo, Park Hyung-sik, and Jo Woo-jin
  • Genre: Thriller
  • No. of Episodes: 12
  • Where To Watch: Viu, iQIYI

A new apartment has been built in a big city. Inside the apartment, high floors are for rich residents who can afford to buy the house, and lower floors are for residents who has rent the house to live. One day, a new type of deadly virus spread throughout the city, and to prevent the spread of the infections, the apartment is sealed off. With fear of the virus, and the conflicts of the different classes, the residents have to spend and survive in the new habitation.

 

All Of Us Are Dead and Happiness has the common theme of being stuck in a building during the outbreak as they wait for authorities to step in and save them. Bakit ko pinanuod ito? Kasi comeback drama ito ni Park Hyung-sik after his military discharge at katambal pa nya si Han Hyo Joo. Nung una akala ko horror drama ito pero hindi naman pala. Inakala ko din na baka di ko magustuhan yung story pero nagkamali ako. Nagustuhan ko siya bukod pa sa sayang naidulot sa akin everytime na nakikita ko sa screen si Park Hyung Sik at ang cute ng chemistry nila ni Han Hyo Joo. Ang gagaling ng aktingan sa dramang ito from main leads to supporting characters. Andami kong naramdaman sa dramang ito kilig, lungkot, kaba, inis at saya. This series might not be the greatest thriller but it’s satisfactory, entertaining, and keeps you on the edge of the seat even with the ordinary plot but interesting characters giving you happiness.

 

Overall K-feels – This was a nicely done show. Not one episode was boring with all the zombies, scheming and danger. I found myself entertained and waiting in anticipation for the next episode. Adding great chemistry between the cast made this drama a pure joy.

 

Kingdom (2019/2020)

  • Cast: Ju Ji-hoon, Ryu Seung-ryong, Bae Doo-na, Kim Sung-kyu
  • Genre: Historical period; Political drama; Horror; Thriller
  • No. of Episodes: 6 per season
  • Where To Watch: Netflix

While strange rumors about their ill king grip a kingdom, the crown prince becomes their only hope against a mysterious plague overtaking the land.

 

If you’re looking for a combination of a period piece and horror, check out Kingdom. Zombies in Joseon era? Interesting plot di ba? Horror genre or zombies are not my thing pero nagustuhan ko sya dahil di lang sya nagfocus sa mga zombies. This drama has everything… Action. Suspense. Plot twists. Cliffhangers. Everything was incredible. The story, the acting, the characters. Ang hate ko lang ay yung paghihihtay sa next season. Kelan na kaya ang season 3?

 

Overall K-feels: Thrilling. Surprising. A Must Watch Series.

 

Kingdom: Ashin of the North (2021)

This drama special is a “sidequel” from “Kingdom Season 2,” providing background on the character Ashin introduced at the end of that series.

  • Cast: Jun Ji-hyun
  • Where To Watch: Netflix

Tragedy, betrayal and a mysterious discovery fuel a woman’s vengeance for the loss of her tribe and family in this special episode of “Kingdom.

 

Overall K-feels: This is a thrilling watch and I definitely loved it. This spin off is just worth its hype.

 

Zombie Detective (2020)

  • Cast: Choi Jin-hyuk and Park Ju-hyun
  • Genre: Comedy; Fantasy; Mystery
  • No. of Episodes: 12
  • Where To Watch: Netflix, Viu

Missing memories of his past, a zombie assumes the identity of a private detective to unravel the secrets and mysteries behind his existence.

 

This drama is similar to other zombie dramas, with the exception that this zombie is far more advanced than the zombies you often see. He can run faster, he has emotions, he thinks like a human, he can manage his appetite, he talks, and so on. You get the idea about the drama from the title itself. I wasn’t expecting much from this drama pero napakainteresting ng series na ito. Okay yung chemistry ng main leads kahit wala masyadong romance. Choi Jin Hyuk’s acting as zombie? Ang galing lang niya. May season 2 kaya? Open ending kasi siya eh.

 

Overall K-feels – It’s a good drama, extremely entertaining and comedy was at its peak.

 

Extracurricular (2020)

  • Cast: Kim Dong-hee, Park Ju-hyun, Jung Da-bin, Nam Yoon-su
  • Genre: Teen drama; Crime drama
  • No. of Episodes: 10
  • Where To Watch: Netflix

A model high school student who’s steeped in a world of serious crime finds his double life upended when a classmate takes an interest in his secret.

 

Extracurricular offers a refreshing take on the high school genre far away from cheesy and innocent first loves. I managed to finish the series as it kept me on the edge with every episode and made me continue watching as I had to find out what will happen next. The acting was simply amazing. May mga boring moments lang pero all in all, it was an intriguing and enlightening story. Open ending, so baka may season 2?

 

Overall K-feels – The plot itself is very interesting and unique, but the drama had some boring moments that lessen the enjoyment.

 

Train to Busan (2016)

  • Cast: Gong Yoo, Jung Yu-mi, Ma Dong-seok, Kim Su-an, Choi Woo-shik, Ahn So-hee and Kim Eui-sung
  • Genre: Action horror film
  • Where To Watch: Netflix

As a zombie outbreak sweeps the country, a dad and his daughter take a harrowing train journey in an attempt to reach the only city that’s still safe.

 

I’m sure everyone at some point has heard of Train to Busan. Actually, antagal nito na nasa plan-to-watch list ko bago ko panuorin. Di kasi ako fan ng mga horror/zombie film eh. Akala ko super scary siya kaya di ko pinapanuod pero infairness maganda pala siya at walang boring moment. Sad nga lang yung ending at pansin ko lang ang tibay nung buntis ah. If you enjoy a little bit of horror, action, thrill, a little bit of comedy and quite a bit of tragedy, give this movie a go.

 

Overall K-feels – The movie will catch your attention right from the start. The acting and characters were great.
