Ji-hyun's part in the series had been a huge secret that even Netflix's production team were kept in the dark about her appearance. As per online Korean site Soompi, she apparently had to film her scenes separately after the other cast members had wrapped up their parts for the day.

Ji-hyun's agency, Culture Depot, confirmed the news earlier: “It is true that Jun Ji-hyun took part in filming for ‘Kingdom’ season two. However, we cannot mention anything about the drama itself. We ask for your understanding.” 

The series will mark Ji-hyun's first appearance in a drama after Legend of the Blue Sea ended in 2017. She's most known for her roles in the romantic comedy My Sassy Girl, and the hit romantic fantasy My Love from the Star.

Kingdom is considered to be Netflix's first original K-drama starring Ju Ji-hoon, Ryu Seung-ryong, and Bae Doona. The second season is officially set for release in March 2020.
