Venture into the vast forests, a forbidden land where a strange plant grows. Netflix unwraps the trailer for Kingdom Ashin Of The North, taking us back to the beginning of the great tragedy that fell upon Joseon and a story of Ashin, and the origins of the resurrection plant.
The tragedy began in the depths of the northern region of Pyesa-gun, an area that has been forbidden for 100 years where dead bodies were suddenly discovered. We meet young Ashin who loses everything in a blink of an eye when her village is horrendously attacked. Driven by loss and with vengeance on her mind, Ashin makes it her mission to “kill every living thing”. The anticipation builds as we unravel the calamities that besiege Joseon.
The special episode reveals the origins of the resurrection plant that triggered a tragic blood bath across Joseon and the woman abandoned by all; Ashin.
Young Ashin (Kim Si-a) discovers the powers of a strange plant that can bring a dead person back to life. Concerned about Ashin, her father warns against searching for it; however, the young girl was dissuaded given her mother’s serious illness. Ashin returns to the forest in search of a resurrection plant when she hears the echoes of screams.
Ashin wishes for “them to shed tears of blood”, foreshadowing an exciting tale of vengeance.
Kim Sia plays the young Ashin, and Gianna Jun plays the older character in unfolding the backstory of the woman who appeared at the end of Kingdom Season 2 shrouded in mystery and subject to much conjecture. Park Byung-eun reprises his role as Min Chi-rok, a young man who encounters Ashin in the freezing cold northern regions.

Director Kim Seong-hun and writer Kim Eun-hee, the duo leading the Kingdom series, team up again for this special episode for fans around the world eagerly waiting for the tale of Ashin.
