Park Ji Hoo also spoke about why she auditioned for All of Us Are Dead, and revealed how she initially had the choice to play either On Jo or Na Yeon (who was ultimately played by Lee Yoo Mi of Squid Game fame).

I auditioned for the series because I enjoyed many famous zombie projects. After the audition, I had the choice between playing On Jo or Na Yeon.

She then shared that she finally chose the role of On Jo because she felt closer to the character and because she felt that she lacked the experience to be able to play Na Yeon properly.

Because I thought I was not ready to fully perform the Na Yeon character and found many similarities with On Jo, I chose On Jo without any hesitation.
