We have a new favorite K-drama villain and it's All Of Us Are Dead actor Yoo In Soo! If you already watched all 12 episodes of the Netflix zombie series, you'll agree with me when I say that he's not only one of the most iconic characters (we're more scared of Gwi Nam than the zombies, LOL)—he also played his role so well. We're happy to see that he's getting the recognition he deserves!
So, if you're new to the fandom, here are seven facts that you *should* know about Yoo In Soo:
1. Yoo In Soo was born on March 25, 1998.
2. He made his K-drama debut in 2017.
Did you know that In Soo starred in five (!!) K-dramas during his debut year? He was cast in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, While You Were Sleeping, School 2017, Avengers Social Club, and Sweet Revenge (which also features his All Of Us Are Dead co-stars Park Solomon, Cho Yi Hyun, Ham Sung Min, and Lee Eun Saem)!
3. He plays Yoon Gwi Nam in All Of Us Are Dead.
In Soo is not new to *bad guy* roles but his character in the Netflix hit is his most remarkable to date. In All Of Us Are Dead, he's a notorious bully named Yoon Gwi Nam who scared the hell out of us with his evil ways. He makes his classmates' lives miserable, does not respect anyone (even the school principal), and will do anything to get his revenge on you.
Although he's daunting, Gwi Nam always places second in his group of friends and is actually just an errand boy of Hyosan High School's biggest bullies. Since he doesn't want to show this to others, he goes out of his way to let them know that he's the *king* of the school. "He becomes a bigger threat to the survivors rather than the zombies," said In Soo during the press con for All Of Us Are Dead.
Director Lee Jae Gyu was so impressed with In Soo's acting chops that he described him as an actor who "has such depth in his acting," and we couldn't agree more! The facial expression, the way he utters words when he's in rage—there's no doubt that In Soo was really made for this role.
4. Yoo In Soo is great at monologue acting.
And he was even awarded for his talent! In 2016, he won the grand prize at the SAC Youth Acting Contest under the monologuing category. ICYDK, monologuing is delivering an uninterrupted speech.
4. He's under Management Koo.
5. Yoo In Soo has a number of Korean celebrity friends.
Including Extraordinary You actor Lee Jae Wook and NU'EST's Minhyun! Both of them showed their support to his latest project by *promoting* his poster on their Instagram stories. In Soo is also friends with his fellow All Of Us Are Dead cast member, Yoon Chan Young.
6. He has already visited the Philippines.
Yup, you read that right—In Soo has already been to the PH particularly in Cebu! We spotted some photos of him in the Queen City Of The South from his IG stories.
7. Yoo In Soo has an Instagram account.
P.S: He likes wearing black that's why his fave bag is in this color, too!
