Netflix drops teaser posters for upcoming special episode ‘Kingdom: Ashin of the North’

Kingdom: Ashin of the North is about to drop soon on Netflix!

Kingdom: Ashin of the North is the much-awaited special episode of Kingdom (2019, 2020), a two-season series by Netflix. It will explore the origin of the resurrection plant—the beginning of the great tragedy that plagued Joseon with man-eating monsters—and the story of Ashin, who was abandoned by everyone.

Ashin is a mysterious character and the successor to the Northern Yeojin tribe’s chiefdom. The spin-off stars Jun Ji-hyun (The Legend of the Blue Sea) and Kim Shi-a (Perfume) as the adult and young Ashin, respectively.

On June 14, Netflix dropped five teaser posters containing all the key points to look forward to in the special episode. The first poster features the young Ashin, while the second poster contains the adult Ashin in the middle of a forest filled with the resurrection plant.

The third one shows a closer look at the plant with the ability to revive the dead and turn them into mindless monsters. The fourth image shows the head of a tiger covered in blood, with a close-up of its eye that stares deeply into the unknown, while the last poster shows a pile of dead bodies.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
