A riveting period zombie thriller.
Set in the Medieval Korean era during the Joseon Dynasty, “Kingdom: Ashin of the North” is a riveting period zombie thriller. This particular feature-length episode is a special episode from the horror series of the same name, Kingdom, that premiered in 2019.
This feature gives background information on the character Ashin and the diabolical role she played in bringing about the zombie apocalypse faced by characters in Kingdom seasons 1 and 2.
Starring Gianna Jun and directed by Kim Seong-hun, the 92-minute special sets up the protagonist for Kingdom‘s third season as seen in the final episode of Season 2. Unfortunately, Netflix is yet to announce whether Kingdom has been renewed for a third season run.
The first two seasons of the series showcase an enthralling story of a prince who attempts to keep his people safe during an outbreak of a deadly plague that allows its victims to rise from the dead as blood-thirsty, flesh-eating zombies. Both seasons of the South Korean drama are available to stream on Netflix Kenya.
