Writer Kim Eun Hee emphasized that blood will spill this season, not only literal blood, but bloodline and lineage. We get to discover how Prince Lee Chang will make his move during the worsening plague condition.
The creators also hinted us that the plague will be worse than ever, conflicts and trust issues with the characters arises as Cho Hak Ju continues his quest for power.
We asked Kim Eun Hee regarding her inspiration on how she gave birth to this script, she told us, “Ever since, I love zombies and I love history, so it is pretty essential to me to write this period piece with zombies in it. I also encounter challenges while writing this script since I was into writing modern-day crime stories. While writing this new season of Kingdom, I had to remind myself that this is a historical project and I have to remind myself that back then, there was no technology.”
The lead stars were all excited to share with everyone this new season they’ve worked on with the continued story from the first season. All casts left messages thanking the viewers around the globe with their unending love and support.
