Korean Zombie Series on Netflix Among NYT's Best Int'l Shows

2019/12/04 Source

Netflix's first Korean drama series, "Kingdom", has been named among the 10 Best International Shows of the year by The New York Times.

The series starring Bae Doona, Ju Ji-hoon and Ryu Seung-ryong revolves around a doomed crown price who investigates a mysterious epidemic.

"Dynamiting the conventions of the [Korean] historical drama series, this rollicking, satirical horror-adventure... adds a zombielike plague and some class-divide comedy to what otherwise looks like a typical tale of 16th-century palace intrigue", the NYT wrote.

"Kingdom", garnered instant attention upon its release early this year and the second season of the show is scheduled to start airing in March next year.
