Kingdom Season 1 Recap
Ok so quick recap of the first season to get you up to speed.

The King of The Kingdom was on deaths door and a mysterious plague ravaged the land. Eyes soon turned to who would be his successor and initially it seemed like the Crown Prince Chang would be a shoe in.

However, The Queen was also apparently pregnant and due to the Crown Prince being of illegitimate birth her child would become the heir should he be born whilst the king was still alive. The King died and though it seemed like this meant that the Crown Prince would ascend to the throne, the evil Queen and her Father, Senator Cho had other plans.

Using a rare herb known as the resurrection plant the Queen was able to bring the King back from the dead and she planned to keep him this way until she had an heir in place.

As we theorised in our last breakdown of the show, the Queen had had a miscarriage and thus she had been rounding up pregnant women in the palace in the hopes of taking their child. There was a mole with the crown princes group, and to make matters worse, the zombie King had passed the disease on to others and now the undead disease was spreading like wildfire throughout the land.

The Crown Prince saw this first hand and the first season centred around him fighting off the plague that was tearing things apart.

Cho did whatever he could to kill Chang and the first season ended with him sending a legion of the undead to a location where he was making a stand.

Kingdom Season 2 Themes
After some back story to the herb Season 2 picks up almost immediately where the first season ended with the horde storming the Crown Prince’s forces.

I’ve always viewed Kingdom as a class struggle story and that is definitely exemplified here. In the first season many of the rich characters hosted large banquets whilst the poor literally ate one another and here that aesthetic is continued. Food is God and this message of the needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few plays heavily into the finale.

Though it wasn’t intentional, in light of recent events, the show is almost metaphorically depicting how people will try to do whatever they can to survive, even if that means stealing all the toilet paper I mean rice…

The Zombies represent people at their base instincts, fighting for whatever they can whilst those in power are cool, calm and calculated, happy to let those that they view as insignificant fight amongst themselves.

There are several examples of this in the six-episode run and ultimately the show states that on the whole though humans tend to be self-centred, we are strongest when we work together.

Though the intro is laced with subtext it’s also just amazing to watch and it’s probably one of the best openings to a season well…ever.

Kingdom Season 2 Plot Recap
Overwhelmed the forces retreat and we discover that not only is the Princes trusted advisor Mu, the mole, but that the disease had also been used in the past as part of biological warfare.

We realise later in the season that the sick and elderly were transformed into the undead through the plant and used to fend off the Japanese forces three years prior.

Once more this shows how the higher ups have little regard for the frail and the show is eerily similar to current events and rules that have been put in place when caring for those that the government view as offering little to society.

The Prince realises that he must end the disease in the land no matter what and with a skeleton crew he heads out after Cho. He sees first hand the desperation…

  • Why the worms in new king still alive??????????

  • You forgot to mention how the worm mutates( becomes contagious after people ate the one who died because of being bitten by the king, plus the how temperature affects it) which is as interesting as the political intrigue from the show.

  • 3 friggin plotholes. First of all, why didnt Seo Bi tell Lee Chang about the water and fire when she had the chance. Second of all, why df couldnt he just be king and let the kid live his life. They could've just said he died with his mom also Lee Chang and the others knew he was the son of his guard. Third of all, wtf the worm is still in the kid? That doesnt make sense, cuz he got cured the worms got out after Seo Bi dumped him in water. So all and all. The serie is good af, but those points i just mentioned was just badly done IMO. Btw will there be a season 3?

    Ps: i wanna be just like the tiger guy when i grow up, he cool af ☹

  • The ending was pretty disappointing to say the least. I’m having trouble following the logic of the ending. Why couldn’t he let the kid live and still become king? So many people fought, died, and sacrificed for him to become king, only to put some no name baby on the throne. Everyone, even himself, believed to be a better ruler than the Cho clan who usurped they throne essentially, but then he goes against all that and put someone else in charge. He could’ve adopted the kid, or even sent him away with his mother and let them live out their days. He didn’t have to either die or become king. What a weird choice.

  • For me the second season is worse than the first season. So many plot holes and plot armor. The ending really doesn’t make any sense. He does not need to kill the baby. But leaving the throne to a infant is pure stupidity. What people need is a king who give them peace and food. Historically, child king never turns into a wise leader. Instead, other people will seek to control the child and claim the power, that will turn the country into turmoil again.

  • This shit was flames man. Just started watching about 3 weeks before season 2 came out and I'm glad as well. I'm a huge Korean/Japanese movie and show fan they do their shit well from 13 Assassin's (Intense drama action) to Extreme Job (Comedy flick) to this riveting and well written zombie show.

  • I thought that the lady in the last clip was the mother of the child king, taking revenge because her child was taken from her. She’s going to use the zombies just as the previous queen did. Only now she knows more and studied the virus well

  • Nobody saying it so I will the lady at the end is korean actress, jun ji hyun and by her fur warrior garb attire and the hints given in the season about a chinese seed merchant who brought resurrection planr to korea. Plus the time period of the japanese invasions in korean history of 1600s, the next chronological event is the jin invasions of korea. The jin were manchu-mongol tribes. Which matches to what she was wearing and also the mongolian zombie cage things. I expect she will play korean speaking manchu antihero.

  • The last scene where the prince chose not to take the throne and leaving the palace is a bit too much for Koreans too because the infant is not legitimate baby anyway. It seems like they need to make season 3 by not killing the baby. …

  • One detail I noticed is that when Cho Hak-Ju speaks to his daughter about all the bodies he's put in the palace's pond, he regards power as the ability to kill without remorse or consequence. He can end as many lives as he wants, and everyone will know about the bodies under the pond and no one can do anything about it. At the end of the season, Chang saves himself and his people through submerging the zombies in the lake, and later he and his companions recover and re-emerge from the water while the queen sinks to the bottom.

    This moment is essential in juxtaposing the pure goodness of power vs. the corruption it can bring. The Cho clan sees the water as a way to drown their sins without ever having to pay for their actions. Lee Chang sees it as a way to purge the horrors of selfish power, and protect himself and his people through it.

    However, the show presents an optimistic conceit where the queen does pay for her selfishness, and she dies alone and loveless, just as her father did. Chang then attempts to recover all the corpses from the lake, distinguishing him from the Haewon Cho's by actively seeking justice and decency by exposing the truth for the world, regardless of personal loss (It also might be important to mention they never recover the queen's body as she's already sunk too far, further punishing her entitled behavior by not allowing her a proper burial. It's reminiscent of Tywin's death, where his corpse stinks so badly no one can attend his funeral).

    That also puts this universal note on the goodness of people, because at the same time he does this, Seo-Bi purges the newborn infant of the Cho clan and saves him from the bloodshed of power coups. But as we see, that seedling of evil and influence still exists in the young child. By virtue of him being an innocent child, I want him to survive S3 and already have formed an attachment to him. I just hope we can have a conclusion that doesn't devastate me completely.

    It's a beautiful moment for Lee Chang though, and I'm genuinely in love with his pure character c: I think it's a hard line to walk to have such a self-righteous character without him coming off as conceited, naive, or shortsighted. But I think Chang achieves, in the truest sense, a pure hero. I'm curious to see if the show will challenge him with a difficult decision similar to the one Ahn Hyeon had to make during the war, and I think contesting his goodness with the circumstances will help develop his maturity and truly give him the foresight to take the throne without regrets or doubts. For now, I'm just relieved the pressure is off him to ascend to the throne, because that just seems like a shitty job in general and he'd surely get grey hairs before the age of 40.
