Kingdom: Ashin of the North Netflix Movie Ending Explained!


Kingdom: Ashin of the North is out now on Netflix! If you want to know the explanation for the ending, read on! The zombie series has become a staple in Netflix’s Korean and horror catalogs in recent years and has even been recognized as one of the best international series by the New York Times.

On July 23, the streaming giant released the latest episode of the Kingdom franchise, a special 92-minute episode titled “Ashin of the North” and it's safe to say fans love it.

However, since this special episode is technically a prequel to Kingdom's first season, some viewers might need an explanation of the ending, including Ashin's revenge plan and the doctor at the end. We tell you all about the explanation for the end of Kingdom: Ashin of the North on Netflix!


Life waits for no one. Ashin, the village's sole survivor, paddles her boat beyond the border, where Joseon's army is stationed. She meets the commander and begs him to give her a chance to avenge her family. Seeing that she pleaded tenaciously, the commander ordered the camp to deal with her.

They place her in a military camp, living in a pig cage despite being the only woman in exclusively male territory. She starts doing odd jobs like doing laundry, looking after pigs, and working out tirelessly. Her first task as commanders, like a daughter or a father, is to spy on the Pajeowi military camp.

We can clearly see the manipulative and deceptive sides of the Joseon armies. She's been doing it for a long time. A soldier even regularly sexually assaults him by abusing his power and authority as a Joseon soldier. One night, the deputy commander finds out, but he does nothing but let the attacker go.

One night, Ashin is ordered to travel to Pajeowi territory to gather information about the war. Little did she know she was going to find something scary. She finds her father there, with a traitor's tag around his neck, and his limbs are severed.

He barely recognizes her. She tries to break the chain by crying and promises to save him. But, he begs his daughter to kill him instead, insisting that there is nothing left to live for. Ashin kisses her father, as he calls him by name and tears roll down his face. At that moment, she grants her last wish, ending her misery.

She later complies and sets the camp on fire before returning to find more recurring questions. She saw something that made her believe she had been betrayed. One of Joseon's men had left the camp to prepare for war, and the tail of his arrow matched the one that had slain Jurchen's men across the river.

Reading the commander's report, she quickly discovers that the commander and his army are the ones who made the tribes fight against each other. They willfully create propaganda while saving themselves trouble.


The main reveal, which I don't think many people expected, is that Ashin resurrected the residents of her village as a child and has kept them imprisoned in a barn ever since.

His family, friends, children, and adults; Ashin lived with the cattle at the military camp so that she could steal food for her zombie villagers back home. Now that her mission is complete, she's so brutal that feeding a living person these monsters doesn't even deserve a change in facial expression.

Some viewers who haven't seen the series may be confused by the last scene, in which Ashin presents the royal physician with the resurrection flowers. This is the backdrop to the main series and it explains how the king was ultimately resurrected in Kingdom, season 1, episode 1!

The events of both seasons are all due to Ashin who supplied the king's doctor with this miraculous plant and did not explain the “side effects” as she now wants to destroy Joseon. An epic final twist that wraps the story and puts the events of the main series in context.
