Interview with Kim Eun-hee

Screenwriter and producer Kim Eun-hee talks about making The Kingdom, her series about politics and zombies in the Joseon Dynasty. “I like zombie stories and tried to find plenty of shows and movies, but after watching them I would often find the sight of zombies moving in flocks somewhat sadder than at first glance. They are a form of life full of hunger, living beings that only have appetite! After that, as I was reading books on the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty and the great famines, I started wondering what would happen if we incorporated zombies to the most disastrous period, when the hunger was at its worst.”
