The cast of tvN’s Forest of Secrets 2 gather for first script reading
tvN’s upcoming Forest of Secrets 2 is well underway and stills have now been released featuring the new season’s first script reading, which took place this past January.
The cast is a mix of old and new with lead actors Jo Seung-woo (Life) and Bae Doo-na (Kingdom 2) both returning to headline the new season.
The story in season two continues on from the first. The lonely prosecutor Jo Seung-woo and warm-hearted police officer Bae Doo-na team up again to investigate a mysterious case and uncover hidden truths.
Also reprising their original roles are rival prosecutor Lee Jun-hyuk (365: Repeat the Year) as well as Yoon Se-ah (Melting Me Softly), who was the wife of the previous chief prosecutor. For season 2, she’s now the owner of her father’s company.
The new additions to the main cast are welcome faces: Chief officer Jeon Hye-jin (Search Query: WWW) and Choi Moo-sung (Nokdu Flower), who plays a top figure in the prosecution team. Through their characters, the story will highlight the existing conflicts between prosecutors and the police force, as well as the question of which responsibilities fall under which jurisdiction.
Directing for the drama is PD Park Hyun-seok (Dance Sports Girls) who replaces season one’s director, Ahn Gil-ho. But the original writer Lee Soo-yeon will be penning the scripts for season two.
tvN drama Forest of Secrets 2 is currently being planned to premiere in August and will broadcast on weekends, following It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.
