Game of Thrones, Vikings, the Witcher, and countless other series are set in Europe (aka Westeros, "the Continent"). These terrific series take a global perspective--and include shows from the Ottoman Empire, ancient China, and Korea. Don't worry, they still have sword fights (and the occasional attack from the undead).
While strange rumors about their ill King grip a kingdom, the crown prince becomes their only hope against a mysterious plague overtaking the land. Zombies--check; great period scenes--check; sword fights--check. In Korean with subtitles.
