Jun Ji Hyun (전지현) has been confirmed to star in the supplementary story of Netflix hit K-drama “Kingdom”! Titled “Kingdom: Ah Sin”, she is set to reprise her role as the female warrior Ah Sin.
Previously, it was rumoured that the Hallyu starlet would star as the lead role in a “Kingdom” prequel, to which Netflix responded that nothing has been confirmed yet. A lot of fans have been curious about her role following her brief appearance in the 2nd season’s finale.

The upcoming project will be different from the previous “Kingdom” instalments. In this case, “Kingdom: Ah Sin” is reportedly to be a single 70-minute short film as an additional story of the original series. The main story is said to focus on the character Ah Sin this time.
In addition to the “My Love From The Star” actress, fellow actor Park Byung Eun – who played Captain Min Chi Rok in the zombie-themed series – will also star in “Kingdom: Ah Sin”. The pre-production process has already begun and both of them will start shooting in October.
Kim Sung Hoon, who directed “Kingdom” season 1, is set to return to helm the project. Unfortunately, the main actors of “Kingdom” 1 and 2 won’t be taking part in the aforementioned film.
