All Of Us Are Dead director reveals the reason behind using green colour uniform in the serious, and it will give you a shock.
After the top Netflix series, Squid Game rose the viewership bar, now All Of Us Are Dead is on the way to sweeping the world.
All Of Us Are Dead follows a group of students who are battling with the people closest to them to survive after many of them become zombies. Without any resources, the surviving students have to find any way to stay protected because if they don’t, they will become part of the horde.
We all got to see a unique storyline and emphasis on young and upcoming actors, netizens haven’t been able to get enough of the detail and thought put into every scene. In particular, one thing that netizens noticed was the uniforms worn by the students. As compared to many other uniforms seen in Korea, the ones worn in All of Us Are Dead have been seen as distinct due to the bottle green colour.
The director Lee Jae Kyoo sat for a recent interview where he revealed some TMI from the show and the hidden meanings behind what viewers can see on the screen.
He revealed that for the show to really be impactful, a lot of thought went into the colours and lighting scene in each shot, whether it was inside the school during the day or the students trying to survive at night.
Jae Kyoo said, “uniforms were carefully thought about, and the colour was picked for a morbid reason, it was all to do with the blood and how much it would stand out on screen. And red blood contrasts with their green uniforms. Through this colour contrast, we wanted to show the intensity.“
Considering the amount of work put into the makeup, it is hard to disagree that the two colours make everything look chilling. In particular, there is also a meaning that artists have used for years.
Red and green are complementary colours, meaning they are “opposites” on the colour wheel. Complementary colours mean that the one colour they don’t have in their shade is the one that sits opposite to them. For this reason, many believe that complementary colours provide a very significant visual tension.
Previously, Squid Games director Hwang Dong-Hyuk explained that he had a special reason for picking the colours along with the chilling reason for adding a ribbon. He revealed that “The main colours of the managers are black and pink. So I matched those tones, like BLACKPINK.“
With the rise in ratings and viewership TMI will undoubtedly be shared with fans from the cast.
