Song Joong Ki has ultimately turned down 'Kingdom'.

'Kingdom', written by drama 'Signal's Kim Eun Hee and directed by movie 'Tunnel's Kim Sung Hoon, will be an 8-episode series that will be on 'Netflix' starting from 2018. Erik Barmack, VP of International Original Content, said, "When I saw 'Kingdom's scenario for the first time, which combines a historical drama's visual beauty and a supernatural fantasy, it made my imagination fire up.

'Kingdom' will add a zombie aspect to the traditional Korean historical drama, where a prince of Joseon uncovers a secret that could threaten the entire country when he investigates an epidemic.

Song Joong Ki previously received an offer for the leading role, but ultimately turned it down. Other actors have been approached, but no one has so far confirmed. As 'Kingdom' is scheduled to start filming in October, the drama will have to find a lead soon.

Who do you think will end up taking the lead role?
