Recent behind-the-scenes footage from “All of Us Are Dead” has emerged on South Korean social media. The footage comes not from “All of Us Are Dead” itself nor does it concern the zombie high school drama’s principal actors. Rather, the stars of this footage are several children who appeared briefly in the fourth episode in zombified form. An Internet streamer comes across them when he goes to a daycare, thinking it to be a safe haven from zombies.
The scene has been a favorite among fans because the child zombies look adorable, and are limited in their ability to wreck havoc by their inability to climb slippery surfaces. According to the mother of one of the children who posted the footage, the children had to attend two practice sessions to get the movements and facial expressions right for filming. The mother said that the shooting environment was very nice and that the kids had a lot of fun.
