And if his sudden wedding announcement with Song Hye-kyo is not enough to make you excited, it’s been revealed today that Song Joong-ki (Descendants of the Sun) is now considering to make a drama comeback via Signal writer Kim Eun-hee’s newest work titled Kingdom.
Kingdom is a zombie apocalypse sageuk set in Joseon, about a crown prince who goes out to investigate a mysterious plague that’s spreading across his country. What he discovers is an epidemic in the form of zombies.
Train to Busan might have set the bar high when it comes to zombie movies, but the fact this is set during the Joseon period gives the drama a chance to blur the potential comparison with the 2017 blockbuster hit.
Kingdom is an eight-episode series and is slated for a Netflix broadcast later this year.
