Screenwriter Kim Eun Hee stated, “I began by enthusiastic about the place the resurrection plant got here from. I hoped to satiate individuals’s curiosity about who Ashin was and what had occurred up within the northern areas. I assumed loads in regards to the resurrection plant and I investigated plenty of materials. The plant has very chilly properties, so I took an interest within the northern areas, and what would occur if the plant bloomed in a spot like that.”

I used to be actually excited to be the beginning of that.”
She continued, “Ashin lives on the border and doesn’t belong to any specific aspect. She misplaced somebody she beloved as a result of an incident. She has skilled persecution and contempt from different individuals. I used to be an enormous fan of ‘Kingdom’ and author Kim Eun Hee. I met her at a non-public occasion and instructed her that I used to be such a fan that I’d love to look as a zombie or in a small position. She gave me such a giant position as an alternative that it’s an honor. I didn’t hesitate after I bought the supply due to Kim Eun Hee. I might’ve felt hesitation as a result of it was a zombie style present, however I believe that ‘Kingdom’ itself is its personal style.”
About filming motion scenes like archery, she stated, “I’m fairly match generally, I train day-after-day, so I used to be already prepared for the problem. Archery was a very powerful a part of ‘Ashin of the North.’ I practiced with a bow and arrow, however Ashin doesn’t even have that many motion scenes. She eliminates zombies with a single arrow. So there weren’t as many motion scenes as you’d assume. It helped me that I had the essential health for the position. Other than that, I discovered archery, but it surely wasn’t that troublesome.”
About Kim Si Ah, who performs her youthful counterpart, Jun Ji Hyun stated warmly, “She’s so cute and fairly that I can’t say if she resembles me or not, however she’s a rising rookie actress. After I learn the script, I hadn’t but heard that there could be a toddler actor, so I used to be actually nervous about whether or not I might pull off Ashin’s whole life story. I couldn’t even think about portraying a few of the feelings that Ashin goes via. But after I noticed a younger actress like Kim Si Ah pull it off, I used to be shocked, and took braveness from her. I’ll cheer her on in future.”
