Fans are one step closer to learning the mysterious backstory of Kingdom as the main trailer for Kingdom: Ashin of the North has finally been released.
The trailer begins in a vast forest of the northern region where a pile of dead bodies are discovered in Pyesa-gun, an area where entry has been forbidden for a hundred years.
After an unknown man threatens to wreak his vengeance, a village is destroyed, leaving only a young Ashin (played by Gianna Jun aka Jun Ji Hyun as an adult and by Kim Siia as the younger version) alone amid the devastation.
Kingdom: Ashin of the North is directed by Kim Seong-hun, who also directed the first season of Kingdom, and written by Kim Eun-hee, who wrote the first two seasons of the series.
Kingdom: Ashin of the North begins streaming on Netflix on July 23.
