Netflix has had considerable success by investing more in Korean content in recent years. By offering subscribers hit shows like Crash Landing on You, Vincenzo and It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, with the list of Korean dramas and movies to watch getting longer and longer as the weeks go by. Among the many highly anticipated future additions to this category on Netflix, a Korean remake of the original Spanish-language Money Heist is also coming to the streamer soon. Meanwhile, another super popular Korean franchise is the Netflix Kingdom series, which just brought fans something new in recent weeks: a full-length standalone “secondary sequel.” One that falls between season 2 and 3 of the series, at the heart of which is an outbreak of zombies following the events during Korea’s Joseon dynasty (1392-1897).

Netflix Kingdom series has a feature-length secondary sequel
The series, by the way, is not only so popular but has its own special. An online action RPG based on the Kingdom series is also coming soon to PC and mobile platforms (which, by the way, coincides with Netflix’s plan to offer video games in addition to movies and TV shows soon). The game will be called Kingdom: The Blood, and there is a trailer that has just been released, which suggests that this one will be a lot of fun to play.
Meanwhile, the Netflix Kingdom series special episode, Kingdom: Ashin of the North, came out in the US about a month ago. From the official Netflix description: “Ashin and her father are part of a foreign tribe that has settled within the Joseon Kingdom. His encounter with a mysterious illness sets Ashin on a path of betrayal, prejudice, and revenge.

To understand that, you really have to see the rest of the Kingdom series itself. It has zombies, but it is also a period drama with a lot of action and political intrigue.
The basic premise here: The series’ titular “kingdom” is rife with corruption and starvation. There is a mysterious rumor about the death of the king that begins to spread. Like a strange plague that turns its victims into zombies. And hungry for meat. Stripped of his power, the fallen crown prince sets out to get to the bottom of it all. And to save his compatriots.
Critics have received this show well enough that one even described Kingdom as the perfect series to binge on if you miss Game of Thrones. Best of all? You don’t have to make a huge investment to decide whether you are a fan of the show or not. That’s because the first season spans only six episodes. “With only six episodes,” notes Thrillist, “it does not suffer at all from the frustrating phenomenon known as ‘Netflix bloat.'” As a bonus, it “ends in such a suspense” that the series’ conclusion will really surprise you.
