Netflix has dropped the suspenseful main trailer for its widely-anticipated Korean original series Kingdom Season 2.
Kingdom is a historical drama set in Joseon-era Korea that is ravaged by a zombie outbreak. It follows Crown Prince Lee Chang as he attempts to deal with the zombies and his political rivals who are after the throne. The series stars Ju Ji-hoon (Hyena), Bae Doo-na (Matrimonial Chaos), Ryu Seung-ryong (Personal Taste), and Kim Hye-jun (Matrimonial Chaos).
The 2-minute long trailer lays bare the many conflicts at the heart of the story—people struggling to survive as they get attacked by hordes of zombies who keep multiplying and killing everyone on their path; the ruthless queen’s (Kim Hye-jun) greed for power; Chief Minister Jo’s (Ryu Seung-ryong) obsession with exerting control over the entire nation; Prince Lee Chang’s (Ju Ji-hoon) determination to claim his position as the rightful heir to the throne; and finally, nurse Seo-bi’s (Bae Doo-na) mission to find a cure for the deadly disease that is wreaking havoc on the entire nation.
The text on the screen flashes, “Some will die, some will rise, blood will spill” as the nerve-wracking teaser come to an end with Prince Lee Chang announcing, “One of us will have to die.”
The two seasons of Kingdom are the creation of writer Kim Eun-hee, who first brought its story to life through a webcomic. They were helmed by Kim Sung-hoon, the acclaimed director of thriller films like Tunnel and A Hard Day.
Kingdom Season 2 will be available for streaming on March 13 worldwide.
