Jeon Ji Hyun is Stunning and Fit at the Netflix Press Conference for Kingdom: Ashin of the North

Early reviews are positive and point out how the backstory of Ashin and the resurrection plant is actually wayyyyy darker (not in lighting but in tone) than even the Kingdom series has been so far. Lots of events where people are being evil even before zombies descend. Jeon Ji Hyun attended the press conference wearing a really cool and striking cutout dark blue dress with black patent booties, and she’s definitely even skinner and fitter than before.
