Kingdom - Korean historical fantasy Walking Dead on Netflix

Just hope it doesn’t turn into the same kind of torture porn that Walking Dead did…

Looks good, but Korean? It sounded like Japanese to me (hope that doesn’t come off as racist).

Those hats are Korean nobility. I think they are gats.

It’s Korean. Trust me on this one.

Am I the only one that watched this? It’s darned good. The Korean take on undead was an interesting spin and the fact that it weaved in a lot of the royalty drama was cool.

I liked it. It’s too short and ends in a cliffhanger.

They didn’t make the shots too dark that’s my favorite thing.

I started watching it with Korean audio and English subtitles but I began drifting off immediately; I will have to re-try while I’m more awake. I really want to like it, if that counts for anything!

I finished it last night and liked it a lot. It gets better as it goes on. I watched with the English dialogue, no subtitles and that worked fine. The end came rather sudden and leaves you wanting more. I will be watching for the next season.

Ah! So here we are. Tom’s stream recalled this show. Then marq linked some imagery, it looked horrible!

fascinatingly horrible… so what’s the theme?

Zombies in ~1700-1800s feudal korea. They eat people. People fight back. There’s also some weird palace intrigue thing mixed in. There’s good guys and bad guys.

Just finished it. That was awesome. It did start a bit slow, which I suppose was necessary to set everything up — it is a fairly complicated story.

But by Ep3 it really ramped up and I watched it pretty much straight through after that.

Oh great! I enjoyed S1.

Me too. I’m currently rewatching S1 so I’ll remember what was going on when S2 drops.

I only finished a month or so ago; I may just watch the last episode again.

I thought it got better & better as it went on. Even some of the bit-players’ terrible over-acting was quite endearing I found.

Nice - I really enjoyed this! I was sure it was dead though - hasn’t it been a few years already?

I’ve started this and was led to believe it was more a political drama with zombies where really it feels more like a zombie show with politics - the decisions being made are political but they still revolve around the zombies. I was kind of hoping more for a GoT approach between the fantasy and political reality.

Still amazing looking. Wish i could hear it in Korean rather than dubbed though.

If you are on Netflix, just switch the language? Pause, select options, select Korean - there you go! :-)

Finally got round to starting to watch this, and I’m enjoying it so far four episodes in. I was surprised at how lavish it looks, perhaps because I’m so used to lo fi zombie flicks. Some of the shots of the (I assume Korean) countryside are gorgeous.
