The K-pop-inspired chapter “All-Kill” and two new characters are now available in Behaviour Interactive’s Dead by Daylight. “All-Kill” is the term used for when a group manages to dominate the top spot of all eight Korean music charts, whether with a song or an album. Fittingly, K-pop and Korean culture heavily influence the new story and characters in the game.
Ji-Woon Hak, or The Trickster, is the new killer. He is a singer by day, but as soon as it’s night, he reveals his true colors as a serial killer. The Trickster treats both his music and his murders as high art. The new survivor is a character named Yun-Jin Lee, who is Ji-Woon Hak’s music producer. Though she suspected Ji-Woon Hak’s true nature, she ignored it for her own ambitions. Now, she unfortunately needs to deal with the consequences of her inaction.

To realistically represent Korean culture and K-pop in All-Kill, the team for Dead by Daylight collaborated with consultants Kevin Woo and DJ Swivel. People both familiar and new to K-pop can enjoy the eye-catching visuals and adrenaline-inducing music in All-Kill. In addition, the Seoul Sights Collection features Korean streetwear-inspired outfits for Yun-Jin and The Trickster. As well, there are outfits for Adam Francis, Feng Ming, Felix Richter, Élodie Rakoto, and Dwight Fairfield.
Colorblind mode and chat filters are also now in the game to make it more accessible. The All-Kill chapter of Dead by Daylight, which heavily draws from K-pop and Korean culture, is now available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Steam, Windows Store, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. It will be available on Dead by Daylight Mobile in spring.
