Netflix has released the main poster for Kingdom: Ashin of the North, a special episode of the Kingdom series. The special episode details the backstory of Ashin and the origins of the resurrection plant that triggered the avalanche of tragic events that swept through Joseon.

In the previous teaser poster, Ashin (Gianna Jun) was standing with her back turned. The new poster features Ashin facing forward with her face revealed. Grasping her bow, she looks confident and charismatic.

The new teaser starts out 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.

With the success and positive reviews for the Kingdom series, “Kingdom: Ashin of the North” comes as a sidequel from Kingdom Season 2 and it focuses on the supporting character Ashin played by Jun Ji-hyun (a.k.a. Gianna Jun). 

The special episode is directed by: Kim Seong-hun based on the script written by: Kim Eun-hee. Apart from Gianna Jun the cast also includes Park Byung-eun, and Kim Si-a. It is produced by Baram Pictures, B.A. Entertainment, Studio Dragon and distributed by Netflix and will premiere on July 23, 2021.
