Viewers have clocked up more than 361 million hours.

The latest Netflix smash hit is 'All Of Us Are Dead', and it's now the fifth most popular Non-English language series on the streaming service.

If you love a good horror, you'll adore this zombie apocalypse K-drama.

Variety reports that the new thriller debuted in the top ten.

The list is calculated by how many hours are watched in the first 28 days on Netflix.

An incredible 361 million hours were watched following the premier on January 28.

It follows in the wake of cult-hit 'Squid Game', which sits comfortably in the number one spot with a whopping 1.65billion hours viewed.

Joining Squid Game and All Of Us Are Dead are the third, fourth and fifth seasons of Spanish crime drama La Casa De Papel (aka Money Heist).

There is also the French mystery series Lupin and Spanish thriller series Elite.

'All Of Us Are Dead' was also previously the most-watched TV series on Netflix.

In The Korea TimesAll Of Us Are Dead director Lee Jae-kyoo talked about some of the concepts touched on in the show: “On the surface, the story talks about school bullying but I don’t think society at large is much different [from school],”

“At first, you might think how cruel those kids can be. But as you get through the episodes, you will see that some of the elements run parallel to this society,” Lee said.

The series is based on the webtoon comic 'Now at Our School' by Joo Dong-geun.

Show creators used all of the comic's source material to complete the first season, and fans are waiting eagerly to find out if a second season will be confirmed.

Lee Jae-kyoo hopes there will be: "Many directions, settings, and scenes were intentionally produced to expand the story into an additional season, including the introduction of the new races of zombies."

"If the first season can be seen as having presented humanity‘s survival, the next season can talk about the survival of zombies. I hope to present viewers with another season."
