Last January 25, 2019, Netflix will be released a contagious case of binge-watch fever as it launched its newest original Korean series “Kingdom”. Set in Korea’s ancient Joseon Period, “Kingdom” follows the journey of a crown prince sent on a suicide mission to investigate a gruesome plague spreading inside the kingdom only to find zombies threatening his reign and his people.
To take this launched to the next level, Netflix Philippines once again strengthened its partnership with global electronics and home entertainment giant LG.

LG Electronics Philippines partnered with Netflix to have a preview screening event last January 24, 2019 with more than a hundred guests at the Korean Cultural Center (KCC). The event was hosted by LG TV Ambassador and social media influencer James Deakin. Guests were treated to a traditional Korean feast and had a blast at the Hanbok photo wall where they got to dress up in a traditional Korean Hanbok to pose against the realistic “Kingdom” backdrop.
