“We’re a bunch of weird kids who found each other in college and still enjoy being weird together. Yea I guess that sounds like squad goals,” Mendoza wrote on Twitter.

“Today’s costume is basically something that would have scared my parents for a totally diff reason a few years ago,” added Mendoza, who dressed up as the pregnant woman from the movie.

Mendoza’s post has garnered more than 15,000 retweets and 26,000 likes on Twitter and 3,000 shares and 21,000 reactions on Facebook.

The zombie thriller was a box office hit in the Philippines and holds the record as one of the best-selling Korean films to date.
