Netflix Responds To The Rumor About Kingdom’s Prequel Starring Jun Ji Hyun
Netflix has responded to multiple reports of a potential Kingdom’s prequel starring Jun Ji Hyun.
On July 20, Munhwa Ilbo reported that “Kingdom” was preparing to launch a new prequel starring Jun Ji Hyun, who made a surprise appearance at the end of season two. The report cited a source from “Kingdom” who claimed that the prequel would center around Jun Ji Hyun’s character Ah Shin and how she became a warrior, led by director Kim Sung Hoon.
The source stated, “It was difficult for the lead actors of the first two seasons of ‘Kingdom’ to immediately start filming for the third season due to scheduling conflicts, so the continuation of their story after season two will probably come in two or three years.” They added, “We will first be bringing the prequel story, where Jun Ji Hyun will be joined by a mostly-new cast of characters.”
A different report by Star News claimed that the prequel would be a 70-minute short film and they were in the final stages of discussions. They also reported that filming is set to begin in October for the prequel.
In response to these reports, a source from Netflix stated, “Nothing has been decided yet on future plans for ‘Kingdom’ There’s nothing we can confirm as of now, including the lead actors, screenwriter, or director. It hasn’t even been decided whether there will be a prequel or not.”
Jun Ji-hyun is a famous South Korean actress best known for her portrayal as ‘The Girl’ in blockbuster Korean romantic comedy flick ‘My Sassy Girl’. She aspired to be a flight attendant since her childhood and becoming an actress was not what she planned. However at age 16 she stepped into the world of glamour and entertainment through modelling after being introduced to a photographer by a friend. Gradually she garnered attention as commercial model and despite her debut in both films and TV in the late 1990s she strived to make a mark as an actress. In 1999 she became an instant sensation drawing the young generation with her pose, posture and dance moves in a commercial for Samsung My Jet Printer.
Her big break came after a couple of years with the mega blockbuster hit rom-com ‘My Sassy Girl’ that emerged as one of the all-time highest-grossing Korean comedies. Such success paved her way for many other notable works including in films like ‘Assassination’ and ‘The Thieves’; and TV series like ‘The Legend of the Blue Sea’ and ‘My Love from the Star’ gaining her international acclaim and cementing her position as one of the top Hallyu stars.
