“Kingdom” Responds To Reports Of New Spin-Off Focused On Joo Ji Hoon’s Character
Netflix has officially responded to reports of a new special episode of “Kingdom.”
On July 23, the hit series released its special 92-minute episode “Kingdom: Ashin of the North.” An extension of “Kingdom” Season 2, the spin-off special tells the story of 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.
That same day, Korean news outlet Sports Chosun reported that “Kingdom” was preparing to release a second special episode in the style of “Kingdom: Ashin of the North.” Entitled “Kingdom: Tale of the Crown Prince” (literal translation), the special would reportedly be helmed by “The Outlaws” director Kang Yoon Sung and focus on the past and present of Joo Ji Hoon’s character Lee Chang.
However, Netflix clarified later that day, “Nothing has yet been decided.”
