Kingdom: Ashin of the North is the prequel of the popular Korean series Kingdom that has acquired a huge fan base all over the world. In an exclusive interview with PTI, writer-director Kim Seong-hun shared, "Usually, it’s Hollywood that does the best job because they have the money and the know-how. So, to differentiate from Hollywood, what the Korean creators do is to become more original and have more original stories moulded to the zombie genre, which makes them look great. I think that’s why so many people love the Korean style." While it is yet to be known if Kingdom will be renewed for a third season, Kingdom: Ashin of the North is sure to satiate fans' appetite.
