If you finished watching Netflix’s “All of Us Are Dead” and still feel like you need more, drop by the series’ pop-up zone at Shinsegae Department Store Gangnam in Banpo-dong this weekend.

The pop-up zone, which runs until Sunday, is inspired by the 12-part series that was released on Jan. 28. The zone is open from noon to 9 p.m.

Since most of the Netflix show is filmed in a high school, the zone has many photo spots that feature a school theme. One of the most popular spots has a typical desk and chair seen in Korean high schools and is similar to the ones used in the show.

Cardboard cutouts of student zombies are also installed here and there for photos.

Several chalkboards are put up for visitors to write down names or short messages. Actor Lee Yoo-mi, who played Na-yeon in the show, took photos at the spot and posted them on her Instagram on Jan. 28.

There is also a section where you can play games that have been created based on the show. In one of the most popular games, zombies appear on a giant screen and players have to hit a pad in front of the screen with a bat to kill the zombie.
