"How many dead bodies do you think are there at the bottom of this pond?" A king's reign of fear continues past the constraints of mortality when he rises from the dead in Netflix's new Korean series Kingdom, and before the series is released on the streaming service this January, an official trailer has been revealed for the latest project from director Seong-hun Kim.

Variety previously reported that Netflix has already green-lit a second season of Kingdom, as revealed by CEO Reed Hastings at the streaming service's "See What’s Next: Asia" presentation in Singapore.

According to Variety, Kingdom takes place around "600 years ago in Chosun Dynasty-era Korea," where a mysterious plague "turns people into something akin to zombies." The series is directed by Seong-hun Kim and written by Kim Eun-hee.

"In a kingdom defeated by corruption and famine, a mysterious plague spreads to turn the infected into monsters. The crown prince, framed for treason and desperate to save his people, sets out on a journey to unveil what evil lurks in the dark. Kingdom coming to Netflix worldwide January 25."
