Jun Ji Hyun Prepares For Battle In “Kingdom: Ashin Of The North”
“Kingdom: Ashin of the North” has shared a new sneak peek of its action-packed story!
An extension of “Kingdom” Season 2, “Kingdom: Ashin of the North” is a special episode dedicated to Jun Ji Hyun’s character Ashin, whom Lee Chang (Joo Ji Hoon)’s party encountered on their journey north at the end of the season.
Not only will the special will reveal the backstory of the mysterious Ashin, but it will also tell the origin story of the resurrection plant, which was discovered by the young Ashin (played by Kim Si Ah).
In newly released stills from the upcoming 92-minute special episode, the young Ashin accidentally stumbles upon the resurrection plant in a forbidden area near the Joseon border. She also ends up finding records related to the plant, which eventually leads to a whirlwind of tragedy that washes over the entire kingdom.
In discovering the resurrection plant, the young Ashin unintentionally changes the course of history—and the other stills feature glimpses of the story to come. Amidst the cold, gloomy landscape of the north, Joseon soldiers protecting the border are threatened by outside forces, raising the question of what will unfold in this bleak terrain.
Meanwhile, once she is all grown up, Ashin proves a force to be reckoned with. With a melancholy gaze that hints at the tragedy she faced as a child, Ashin is ready to take vengeance on those who destroyed her world.
“Kingdom: Ashin of the North” will be released on July 23. Check out a teaser for the upcoming special here!
