At first glance, not much. Yet, you’ll find more similarities than differences if you look beyond the surface.

Both TV shows focus on teenagers in high school with a lot of problems. From bullying and trauma to drugs and zombies, it’s just the average things teens today deal with.

The other thing? They’re the two shows the internet can’t stop talking about!

Whether you’ve watched the show or not, you’ve probably seen some clips or at least memes from Euphoria as it fills Twitter feeds and TikTok FYPs. This American adaptation of an Israeli show of the same name even broke HBO’s max rating record as the Season 2 premiere garnered 2.4 million viewers.

Likewise, All of Us Are Dead had a record-breaking premiere on Netflix. On January 28, 2022, the Webtoon adaptation became the “Top TV Show,” according to FlixPatrol!

Variety has announced that All of Us Are Dead has become the trending topic of the internet. It officially dethroned Euphoria off Variety’s Trending TV Charts for the week.

Whether it was due to the show’s popularity or something else entirely may be debatable, though… Variety shared that the top trending tweet related to All of Us Are Dead was also related to BTS.

It was none other than an ARMY’s (@btsinthemoment on Twitter) translation of BTS’s leader RM‘s response to a fan’s post on Weverse. RM had been asked if he was “going to watch” All of Us Are Dead, and he explained that it was a “legend webtoon.”

The above translation tweet had 5,002 retweets, 1,133 quote tweets, and 22.4K likes.

And believe it or not, this brings us to yet another connection All of Us Are Dead and Euphoria have: BTS. Not only are some of the Euphoria cast ARMY too, but you may recall that Jungkook‘s solo song “Euphoria” was featured. Read more below:
