[HanCinema’s News] Social Media Accounts of ‘All of Us Are Dead’ Stars Experience Big Popularity Boost @ HanCinema

After seven days of being the worldwide number one series on Netflix, the largely unknown stars of “All of Us Are Dead” have seen a big boost to their social media accounts worldwide. Lee Yoo-mi of “Squid Game” is the only one recognizable to an international fanbase, and there is only as a secondary actor. She was the character who engaged in a death game against the character played by Jung Ho-yeon. At present, her Instagram account has over 7.2 million followers.


Yoon Chan-young has been one big beneficiary of “All of Us Are Dead” hype with his Instagram account followers jumping to over 2.5 million. This is from a pre-drama total of only 70,000 followers. Park Ji-huwho plays the unrequired crush of his character, has over 2 million Instagram followers herself now, when before the release of “All of Us Are Dead” she had only 30,000 followers.

Lomon who was formerly known as Park Solomon had more Lomon991111/” target=”_blank”>followers than most thanks to his drama work prior to beginning his mandatory military service. But even he earned a noteworthy boost, from 250,000 followers prior to the drama’s releases to 3.1 million followers now. Cho Yi-hyun went from 260,000 followers to over 2.8 million followers thanks to “All of Us Are Dead” and its popularity. Other stars as well have had noteworthy boosts, though none quite so dramatic as these.
