Kingdom: Ashin of the North is slated to be released worldwide this July 23, exclusively on Netflix.
Netflix’s highly awaited Kingdom (2019, 2020) spin-off Kingdom: Ashin of the North continues to treat anticipating viewers with jaw-dropping promos—this time, the second version of its main poster!
Described by writer Kim Eun-hee as “the beginning of everything, the root of it all,” Kingdom: Ashin of the North is set to unravel the mysteries behind Ashin’s fateful discovery of the resurrection plant. The 92-minute special episode features Korean screen icon Jun Ji-hyun (The Legend of the Blue Sea) and rising child actress Kim Shi-a (Perfume) as the adult and young Ashin, respectively.
The newly released main poster previews Ashin on top of a roof, preparing to shoot her blazing arrows at the man-eating monsters below her. She remains unfazed despite the imminent danger, almost as if she knows exactly what to do to take down the entire horde by herself. Also, her blank expression makes one curious about the string of unfortunate experiences that robbed the tribeswoman of her emotions and fear of death.
