Premiere Watch: Forest of Secrets 2
Time slot: Saturday & Sunday
Genre: Legal-police thriller
Episode count: 16
While many would argue that K-dramas were not made for seasons, every now and then there’s a drama that just begs for more after it’s over (or is that us begging for more?) Either way, tvN’s much-enjoyed crime thriller is back as Forest of Secrets 2, and it’s promising to be a 2.0 version of its former self. Our leading actors, Bae Doo-na and Jo Seung-woo, are reprising their roles of police officer and prosecutor respectively, and I know I’m not the only one expecting the drama to lead with the same strong, character-driven storytelling. While the drama carries the history and happenings from the previous season into Season 2, we also have a new setting and a new conflict in the shape of an internal conspiracy. So far what we have seen and heard from Forest of Secrets 2 looks like a second season done right, so who’s ready for the premiere this weekend?
