This is the place where the Kingdom story begins. The abandoned cave within the forbidden land of Pyesa-gun has cave paintings that describe how the resurrection plant can bring people back to life. It also warns that there is a price to pay for resurrection.

2. Pyesa-gun Forest

This deep and still forest that is uninhabited by humans is called Pyesa-gun. It was an area originally used for military purposes to protect the frontier border, but became forbidden to enter for 100 years for reasons unknown. 3. Ashin’s Village

The final background is the village where Ashin was born and raised. Featuring vast plains and deep coniferous forests, the northern frontier tinged in shades of dark blue offers a different visual beauty from the sites previously seen in the Kingdom series.

In addition to these locations, other areas like the dense forest, the Amnok River, broad fields of reeds, and snow fields shine as they play an important role in portraying the story. There is no shortage of beautiful new sites in the special episode. See the background changes in action below!
