Netflix has revealed the main poster and a teaser trailer for “Kingdom: Ashin of the North,” a special episode of the Kingdom series that will expand its horizons. The special episode will be released on July 23 on Netflix, worldwide.
The new teaser trailer (watch above) starts with a scene of a tiger attacking people deep in the forest. Following that, we see young Ashin (Kim Si-a) tell her father about discovering information regarding a strange plant that can bring a dead person back to life. Concerned about Ashin, her father warns her against searching for it. However, Ashin cannot be dissuaded due to her mother’s serious illness. Ashin returns to the forest searching for the resurrection plant when she hears the screams of many people. Lastly, Ashin voices her wishes for “them to shed tears of blood” which foreshadows an exciting tale of vengeance.
This special episode reveals the origins of the resurrection plant that triggered the avalanche of tragic events that swept through Joseon and a woman abandoned by all - Ashin.
The new poster features Ashin facing forward with her face revealed. Grasping her bow, she looks confident and charismatic.
