DESCRIPTION:
(from Netflix's press release, March 2017) Netflix Inc., the world's leading Internet television network, today announced its second Korean original television series - Kingdom. The eight-episode series, produced by a prominent Korean Drama production company, Astory, is set in Korea's medieval Joseon period where a crown prince is sent on a suicide mission to investigate a mysterious outbreak that leads him to a brutal truth that threatens the kingdom. Kingdom breaks new ground by combining two popular genres in one series: historical period drama and zombie action-thriller. The show is a collaboration between two of Korea's strongest storytellers - director Kim Seong-hun whose latest success Tunnel was a top five movie in the Korean box office last year; and writer Kim Eun-hee whose series Signal was one of the top K-dramas in 2016.
