In the trailer, a teacher foreshadows the school’s impending doom during a lesson, telling students that “humanity has never defeated a virus.” Everything they learned from textbooks is wrong, he claims. The students, played by Yoon Chan-young, Cho Yi-hyun, Park Ji-hu, Lomon, Yoo In-soo, Lee You-Mi and Lim Jae-hyeo, are forced to find out whether the teacher was right all along in a series of back-to-back horrifying scenes.
“All of Us Are Dead” is set to premiere on Netflix on Jan. 28. JTBC Studios, known for dramas including “Snowdrop,” “Beyond Evil” and “Itaewon Class,” is behind the production.
