This Friday the one shot side-quel to the Netflix hit zombie K-drama Kingdom drops with a warrior princess at the helm in Jeon Ji Hyun. Kingdom: Ashin of the North showcases the genesis of the zombie plant and the zombification of the citizens in Joseon Korea which apparently started in the North before expanding and catching up with the Crown Prince played by Joo Ji Hoon at the start of the first season of Kingdom. The only Kingdom character to show up in Ashin will be Park Byung Eun and I also expect the young actress playing the younger Jeon Ji Hyun is Kim Shi Ah to make an impression if she’s as good as she looks in the previews so far. Netflix is clearly not sitting on this drama, instead expending money and energy to properly promoting it as the series has gotten multiple sets of official poster releases and a string of teasers to now the full trailer dropping. I definitely know which Netflix and chill date I have this weekend lol.
