In a report from Dramabeans Joo Ji-hoon, Ryu Seung-ryong and Bae Doo-na have been shortlisted for the main cast of "Kingdom." The story will happen at the historical period of Joseon at a time of crisis, in this case, the crown prince is set to solve the mystery. The Netflix series "Kingdom" consists of 8 episodes of action and thriller when the mystery uncovered was due to an ongoing zombie outbreak that is set to plague the entire country.

Much to the disappointment of many Korean drama viewers, allkpop reports that Song Joong Ki has already turned down the offer to be in "Kingdom." Song Joong Ki is reportedly getting married to actress Song Hye Kyo and has decided to focus on the wedding preparations. Unfortunately for the "Kingdom", the series will start shooting scenes in October, and the stars chosen for the role has not yet confirmed or announced.

If Joo Ji-hoon gets the role of the crown prince, he will not only be faced with zombie attacks, but it seems that there will be other hindrances to his mission.
