Bong Joon-ho has been on movies for close to thirty (count ’em) years now. His feature film resumè began several years after, with black comedy Barking Dogs Never Bite in 2000.

With Kingdom, they’re especially including the new historical period zombie hybrid which they’ve already considered groundbreaking enough to garner a second season as of July as they waited out even airing the first.
