Netflix has dropped a new teaser poster for Kingdom: Ashin of the North, and it features lead actress Jun Ji-hyun on the outnumbered side of an anticipated epic battle!
Kingdom: Ashin of the North is the highly awaited spin-off of Kingdom (2019, 2020), Netflix’s popular Korean original series franchise. The upcoming zombie-themed special episode will follow two story arcs—the origin of the resurrection plant and the story of Ashin (Jun Ji-hyun, The Legend of the Blue Sea), the next chief of the Northern Yeojin tribe.
The promo image previews Ashin as she single-handedly faces an entire army in the middle of a scorched battlefield. Even with her back turned, the fearless tribeswoman channels the spirit of a true warrior, holding her head high despite wielding nothing more than a bow and arrow.
In addition, the poster’s foreboding caption reads, “Vengeance is coming,” which hints at an unfortunate backstory involving young Ashin (Kim Shi-a, Perfume), the girl who discovered the resurrection plant and have borne witness to how it spread havoc all over Joseon.
Kingdom: Ashin of the North will begin streaming worldwide this July 23, exclusively on Netflix.
