The zombie series Kingdom continues onward, with now two seasons under its belt and a sideways foray coming with Kingdom: Ashin of the North. It’s not called either a prequel or a sequel, and instead is sorta a side-quel where the story goes into the origin of the zombie plant and the mysterious woman known as Ashin of the North who may or may not have a played a key role in its origination and spread. Jeon Ji Hyun is the titular Ashin who made a one second cameo at the end of season 2 of Kingdom, a cool warrior woman who keeps zombies chained and appears unafraid of that danger around her. Netflix will release Ashin on July 23rd and Jeon Ji Hyun along with original Kingdom male lead Joo Ji Hoon will then meet audiences together in October when their mountain climbing drama Cliffhanger (Mount Jiri) is released.
