Since its premiere on Netflix last 26 January, historical-thriller series Kingdom has made waves on social media for its unique take on how we binge-watch our K-dramas. Probably taking a page out of the 2016 blockbuster hit Train To Busan starring Gong Yoo, what's unique about this series is that it adds a periodic spin to a zombie apocalypse by bringing us to Korea's Joseon era.
To be fair, the plot is quite simple: as if having flesh-eating and fast-running zombies coming to haunt humanity isn't that big of a problem, you also have the politics between kings, princes, and government ministers added to the dynamic. Given that it's two familiar K-drama plotlines meeting in the middle, it's plain to see the appeal.
Slated for only six episodes in its first season, it is reported that a second season is already in the works, much to the excitement of the audience. And given its reception, plus that cliffhanger revealed at the end of season 1, we're giving Netflix a two thumbs up for this decision. We only wish they could hurry on the production!
So whether you've just jumped on the Kingdom train or you're off to look for more shows to dive into while waiting for its second season, we've done the liberty of listing down more Asian Netflix shows you need to check, stat!
