New Korean zombie series on Netflix “Kingdom”
Is fricking AWESOME. It’s only 6 episodes and puts a bit of a new spin on the sub genre with the setting being in medevil Korea with the zombies only coming out at night and go back to sleep when the sun comes out. And they’re the fast as hell 28 days later type zombies. Last episode ends with a “holy shit” moment that really leaves you wanting more

Highly recommend if you don’t mind reading sub titles. Second season just started filming

Ive finished through the 3rd episode.

The 1st episode had a lot of setup but it paid off for me in 2 and 3. I usually enjoy Korean flicks though.

I do like that so far it's the old Halloween episode of South Park played completely straight.

I could see how you’d say that. It definitely starts out slow and you don’t see any zombies but the whole thing with the King being infected kept me interested

Well they’re a part of a powerful clan that’s been trying to take charge for years and their daughter/sister is the queen who is pregnant with the rightful heir. They’re trying to keep the King “alive” until the child is born. The prince does start to flex his political power later and becomes really likeable from how he takes charge against the zombies

re: New Korean zombie series on Netflix “Kingdom”
Awesome show. Major cliffhanger at the end though. Season 2 should be great

I think the family power struggle is just as interesting of a story as the zombie aspect which to me helps set this show apart

Just saw 1st episode. Pretty good. Good thing about Korean movies/shows is that they don’t care about pc crap...they hold nothing back. Bad thing is that the names and places are hard to remember even though I’m asian myself.

I watched the first three episodes last night after reading this thread.

It caught my attention and I think it is really good. 8/10
