Kingdom: Ashin of the North is a Kingdom episode that will surely get you hooked on the show. If you’re worried about not understanding what’s happening because you haven’t watched the show yet, you can relax. Why? Watching this special episode won’t ruin the experience for you.
The special episode takes place before the events of the first two seasons. In short, it’s kind of like a prequel of the show. The special episode will focus on origins of the rare resurrection plant and will provide the backstory for how the kingdom ends up facing a zombie problem.
Not everyone has the time to stream two seasons of a show in a week, but this Kingdom special is only 92 minutes long. Yes, it’s shorter than an average movie.
Kingdom: Ashin of the North stars South Korean superstar Gianna Jun, who’s known to be the queen of both K-films and K-dramas. That’s why a lot of Korean stans are super excited about the special episode. She had a cameo appearance in the second season of Kingdom, which foreshadowed this TV special. Her participation in the show marks her return to the small screen. Her last television role was in Legend of the Blue Sea five years ago.
You don’t have to wait much longer to watch Kingdom: Ashin of the North because it’s set to stream worldwide on Netflix on July 23. Get ready for some action and suspense. We don’t blame you if you get hooked on the show, and binge watch the whole Kingdom series though.
