If there’s one character in All of Us Are Dead that we can all agree was frustrating and annoying, it was Lee Na-yeon.
Portrayed perfectly by Lee Yoo-mi (also known for her role as Ji-yeong in Squid Game), we shouted at the screen and wanted to tear our hair out out of frustration by her character’s decisions. In a recent press con with the cast and director, the 27-year-old actress revealed that she really worked hard to get into her role. Apparently, she kept asking the other cast members questions like, “Am I upsetting you enough?” and “Am I getting on your nerves enough?” Because of this, she was named “a cute angry bird” on set.
“Well, I think I went around asking that question to a lot of people,” she shares. “But I particularly asked it to Sung-min, who played the role of Gyeong-su. Before the camera was on, I would constantly ask him, “Is this more annoying? Is this more annoying?” I really tried to make it more provocative and upsetting. So he would give me tips like, “Yes, Yoo-mi, I think this gets more on people’s nerves.” And so I tried to make it as annoying as possible.” Clearly, all of that effort created true enemy-like energy on set. Coz seriously: who wasn’t annoyed by her?
