To celebrate the upcoming release, Netflix held a red carpet and presscon with stars Ryu Seung-yong (Jo Hak Jo), Bae Doona (Seo Bi), Ju Ji-hoon (Chang), writer Kim Eun-hee, and director Kim Seong-hun at the Intercontinental COEX in Seoul, Korea on January 21, 2019. It sure looks like a fun time, with that really creepy cake and zombie extras in attendance.

Set in the medieval Joseon period, Kingdom is the upcoming 6-episode series that will feature zombies. With the kingdom defeated by corruption and famine, a rumour of the king’s death spreads, together with a strange plague that renders the infected immune to death and hungry for flesh. (You know, zombies.) Crown prince Chang sets out to unveil the evil behind it all, and save his people.

Netflix is pretty confident about Kingdom, with filming for season 2 already in the works. But right now, check out the trailer above, as well as the great behind-the-scenes shots.

Kingdom will be released on Netflix 25 January, 2019.
