Hot on the heels of the release of “Rampant” in Korea, another zombie story set in Korea’s medieval Joseon period is on the way with the release of the trailer for the new Netflix series “Kingdom”.
The eight-episode series sees a crown prince sent on a suicide mission to investigate a mysterious outbreak that leads him to a brutal truth that threatens the kingdom. Ju Ji-hoon, Bae Doona and Ryu Seung-ryong co-star.
Celebrated local filmmaker Kim Seong-hun (“Tunnel”) and series writer Kim Eun-hee (“Signal”) have collaborated on the project which has been in the works for nearly seven years.
“Kingdom” will have two seasons with the second to go into production shortly after the original debuts on Netflix globally on January 25th.
