Kingdom Web Series – My Opinion
The series story written by Kim Eun-hee is a gem and the production is also of top quality (with each episode costing more than $1.78 million – more costly than some of the movies). This is a superb historical zombie drama with loads of action. They took a chance of telling the Zombie story in a historical way which is very novel. The action scenes are gripping and gruesome.
The zombies in this series is completely different than the ones that we usually see in the western series. The zombies here are fast – sprinters in fact. If you like the Korean movie like Train to Busan, then you will love this one too.
I rate this series 5 stars out of 5 stars.
