A Netflix Original Series Kingdom Season 2’s Kim Sungkyu Allures Global Fandom


Actor Kim Sungkyu is receiving a global attention with his strong acting skills through his performances in the Netflix original Korean language series <Kingdom> and <Kingdom> Season 2.

 <Kingdom> features hell-like Chosun where those in power with their greed has turned those dead back into life. Continuing in Season 2, Kim acts as Youngshin who works alongside with Prince Lee Chang(Ju Jihoon) to fight against the zombies infesting the country. 

Bae Doona who also stars in <Kingdom> stated, “I think Kim Sungkyu will shine the brightness in Kingdom”. Some of the comments by the fans include, “One of the reasons why we love Kingdom is Youngshin,” “Furious Youngshin is so hot,” “He is so good at acting! Love his eyes and his voice!” “I can concentrate more when Youngshin is on the scene.”

When asked why he thinks global fans adore Youngshin, he stated, “Youngshin’s character is so well crafted, and his fast and desperate acting scenes are all well connected in the both seasons. Youngshin is a character that represents the common people. I think people see the energy bursts from his non-impressive looks.”

New York Times has voted <Kingdom> as 2019’s Top 10 best international TV show and Forbes has picked it as better than <The Walking Dead> and as fantastic as <The Game of Thrones> while Thrillist acclaimed the show as “More than just a zombie show.”
