[Drama 2019] Kingdom, 킹덤 - Joo Ji Hoon, Bae Doo Na - Netflix

Recommended Posts

Having just watched the first 5 mins of Ep1... I can already tell this is going to be a very long 6-episode watch for me, as I find myself in the vicious cycle of Play, avert my eyes, Pause, take a deep breath, and the cycle begins once more. Gonna try again later tonight, fortified by company in numbers (aka family), and a huge pillow to hide my chicken self behind :sweatingbullets::wacko::D

Hiiiii @triplem you are here too :lol:

Do you know where to watch this beside from Netflix? I don’t want to subscribe netflix again because it cancelled my other favorite shows and only want to watch this one :lol:

Anybody knows where to watch this online or maybe download it?

I usually hate horror/zombie genre because I hate being surprised by scary music but I will endure this one just for Joo Ji Hoon! :wub: 

Is this going to be like western show with multiple season? Because I read somewhere that Netflix already greenlight 2nd season. But not sure whether the souce is reliable.

Netflix released all 6 episodes. This is suppose to be season 1. I think some of those sites out there will pick it up.

It's done with 2 eps; it's really the trademark of Netflix : horror, violence....!

I"ll continue tomorrow with ep 3 if not I can't sleep well tonight hahaha !

I don't want watch it while eating........grurururruur !

So until now I don't like the Crown Prince : he's so weak; not brave, no skills....

I don't know what he will do in the future to save his people and his kingdom

Ah, I think I've been run over by the Truck of HIGH-QUALITY DRAMA. I'm in love!

The show kept me in its grip from the first ep and didn't let go til the end. There's not a second wasted to stretching out the show or to make convoluted nonsense twists to the plot. Solid from start to finish. Budget well-spent, thank you Netflix.

Season 2 can't come soon enough.

Whew this show is probably one of the most aesthetically pleasing shows in recent years, and I’m not surprised with the amount of money spent. That being said, the plot is very well written and production is A1. The writer was able to weave together your usual court politics and ZOMBIES, so well done. The cast did an incredible job here, and so did the production crew. Makeup team did not PLAY, they showed up. The zombies were violent and gory, but it wasn’t scary after the first episode. 

 

I’m disturbed that the Jo Hak Jo wasn’t even bothered by the news of the zombies but that definitely raises the stakes in the next season. Also the way he treats his daughter, compared to his son, not surprising at all. He’s a great villain, I wished we got more screen time of him. And the Queen? As soon as I saw that scene where the women were gathered up, I knew something was shady. 

 

Crown prince was iffy for me in the first episodes, but he’s gotten better. I wished Bae Doona’s character had a bit more depth but she did a good job too. Ryu Seung-ryong must’ve been expensive to cast but he played his character well. 

 

Overall, I like the show. My expectations were surpassed, but not with flying colors though. This show was everything I wanted it to be, but I feel a bit “whelmed”. I don’t know what it is, but it’s okay, I’ll be back for S2.

 

Last note: I don’t think I can look at meat the same after this

Wow! So intense. Gorgeous as well. I'm on episode 3 right now. So the new scholar who was sent for, I guess there must be a resurrection secret that happened 3 years ago. 

Soup calamity guy's survival instinct is top notch. 

I feel like I got a caffeine injection or something. I need to take pauses in between, it gets too intense.

Finally watched the 1st episode and I must say that despite the sudden loud music that makes me jump from my seat and those scary zombies, I love this drama. Only watched 1st episode so still adjusting with the characters but already hate the Queen :yum: I may be bias when it comes to Joo Ji Hoon, but I think the Crown Prince is so cool. :joy: And Bae Doo Na is amazing as usual.

I said the Crown Prince is weak maybe.....bc I compare JJH with his 

character in Along with God :blush:

 

If the Crown Prince is as powerful as Have Won Mak, the zombies will be gone in 1 episodes:joy:

I think Netflix already announced for 2nd season. Maybe that's why the ending is so cliffhanger. I heard rumor the 2nd season will most likely to come in either 2020 or 2021.

Hello everyone, hope you're all doing well! I just watched all 6 episodes in one go and wow! I am truly hooked this was such a nice watch and the last episode ended on such a cliffhanger I can't wait for the 2nd season (btw I'm not the biggest fan of zombies but this was truly a great watch)

I am only on episode 2.  Have to laugh out loud about your soup guy comment.  Is it ok if I laughed? :lol:  I thought the closeup to his bruised fingernail was deliberate... and tada, it came back later.

 

In a Confucious society that values life after death where we also must treat the deceased in an honorable manner, the poor and suffering cannot afford to hold faith and morality when their king has failed them.  But yes, survival kicks in so we can either see the guy as mad or realistic.

 

So far, love the look of the show and the editing... the cast, JJH and Bae Doona’s restrained acting make me believe in the story.  Not just an all out horror show with characters acting incoherently so they can die. :lol: I like the quiet moments that episode 1 carved out so we get to know more about the two main characters right away.  How the Crown Prince is acutely awared of his fate all along as a prince in name only but his love for his father runs deeper than all others who conspired to take over the throne.  Because of his bloodline, I think he never understood the need to connect with the people or embrace the role of a leader/prince.  He underestimated himself.  The journey outside of the palace is one of self discovery asides from making him understand why he needs to save his father and country.   Seobi is quite a healer  with good instincts.  I hope she plays a big part in the drama as I continue to watch.
