Bad Guys return to OCN for a Season 2
Fellow drama addicts, it is time to celebrate for the drama gods have answered our prayers! OCN is making a Season 2 of the bone-chilling crime-thriller Bad Guys. But wait — that’s not all. The writer-director duo from Police Unit 38 is coming back together to helm this new project. Can I get a hallelujah?
The first season of Bad Guys broke OCN’s previous ratings records, reaching over 4% viewership, which was quite the feat at the time. Starring Park Hae-jin as a psychopathic murder suspect and Kim Sang-joong as a good-detective-turned-black, this drama was all about Machiavellian philosophy. Do ends justify the means?
Three hardened convicted criminals team up with two desperate detectives to solve gruesome crimes and catch the culprits responsible. The writer behind this masterpiece was Han Jung-hoon, whose other projects with OCN, Police Unit 38 and Vampire Prosecutor, have also garnered praise. Writer Han is currently working with MBC’s creative team for its upcoming drama Missing 9, and as soon as it is finished, he will turn to Bad Guys Season 2.
For the new season, Han Jung-hoon will be re-teaming with PD Han Dong-hwa from Police Unit 38, who was the on-set camera director during Bad Guys’ first season. We don’t know yet if any of the actors will be returning, but considering his track record working with Writer Han, I wouldn’t be too surprised if Ma Dong-seok popped in for a cameo.
Season 2 of gritty crime-action drama Bad Guys will air on OCN in the latter half of 2017.
