The staff member was reportedly heading home after wrapping up filming back on January 12, when they experienced dizziness, then fainted. They were sent to the hospital, but ultimately passed away from a case of a cerebral aneurysm. They were 33 years old, and a member of the drama's art team.


A representative from the drama's side revealed, "We are all saddened by the sudden news of a staff member's passing." The drama will cancel all filming schedules for the remainder of this week, and will begin discussing filming again only after safely carrying out the late staff member's funeral. 


Meanwhile, 'Kingdom' is a 6-episode series written by Kim Eun Hee of 'Signal' and 'Sign', and directed by Kim Sung Hoon. It stars Bae Doo Na, Joo Ji Hoon, Ryu Seung Ryong, Jung Suk Won, and more, and will be available through 'Netflix' sometime this year. 


Our condolences to the late staff member and their family.
