Watch the End of the Kingdom Explanation: Northern Ashin on Netflix!

Kingdom: Ashin of the North is now available on Netflix. If you want to know the explanation of the end, keep reading! The zombie series has become a staple in Korean and horror catalogs of Netflix 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 92-minute special episode titled “Ashin of the North,” and fans can tell fans are loving it.

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

Has Ashin’s father died?

Life does not wait for anyone. Ashin, the only survivor of the village, paddles her boat across the border where the Joseon army is located. He meets the commander and begs him to give him a chance to avenge his family. Seeing that she begs tenaciously, the commander orders the camp to take care of her.

They place her in a military camp, living in a pig cage when she is the only female in an exclusively male territory. She starts doing odd jobs like doing laundry, tending pigs, and training tirelessly. As a daughter, as a father, your first mission as a commander is to spy on the Pajeowi military camp.

We can clearly see the manipulative and deceptive sides of the Joseon armies. She has been doing the same for years. One soldier even sexually assaults him on a regular basis, 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 go to Pajeowi territory to gather information about the war. He is far from suspecting that he will discover something terrifying. She finds her father there, with a traitor tag around his neck, and his limbs are severed.

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

He later obeys and sets fire to the camp before returning to find other recurring questions. She saw something that made her believe she had been betrayed. The tail of the arrow of one of the Joseon men who had left the camp to prepare for battle matched the one that had killed Jurchen’s men across the river.

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

Kingdom: Ashin of the North ending explanation

Now comes the big surprise, the moment that I don’t think many fans expected, Ashin resurrected the members of her village as a child and has kept them chained in a barn ever since.

Your family, friends, children and adults; Ashin lived with the cattle in the military camp so that he could steal food for his zombie villagers at home. Now that his mission is complete, it is so brutal that feeding these monsters to a living person does not even deserve a change in facial expression.

However, some viewers who have not seen the series may not understand the final scene, where Ashin delivers the resurrection flowers to the royal doctor. This is the backdrop to the main series and explains how the King ended up resurrecting in kingdom season 1, Episode 1!

The events of both seasons are due to Ashin, who provided the king’s physician with this miraculous plant and did not explain the “side effects” as he now wants to destroy Joseon. An epic ending twist that wraps up the story and puts the events of the main series in context.
