All Of Us Are Dead: People Are Recognising Actor Lee Yoo-mi From Squid Game

Warning: This article contains spoilers for All of Us Are Dead

Netflix's horrifying new zombie series All of Us Are Dead is quickly climbing the trending charts across the world and now fans have noticed a very familiar face from another smash hit show.

The series is set during a zombie virus outbreak at a high school in which several unfortunate teens and a few teachers must fight their fellow students, who have transformed into the undead, for their own survival.

One of the students trapped at the school is Lee Na-yeon (played by Lee Yoo-mi), a privileged and spoilt teen who looks down on her peers from different backgrounds and constantly complains.

She berates and insults Han Gyeong-su (played by Ham Sung-min) by calling him a "welfie", a derogatory term for someone on welfare support.

Fans of the frightening zombie series have recognised Lee Yoo-mi from Squid Game and the characters the actress played in both shows are now being compared because they couldn't be more different.

The 27-year-old actress starred in Squid Game as Ji-yeong, player number 240. Her character features heavily in the marble game which took place in episode six, in which the players must choose a partner and create their own game using marbles.

Ji-yeong, aka player 240, forms a pair with Kang Sae-byeok, player 067, and she reveals she grew up in an abusive household and killed her father after he murdered her mother.

In a tragic twist, Ji-yeong sacrifices herself so Sae-byeok could survive to find her long lost brother.
