Netflix’s original series ‘D.P.,’ which touched upon the “military trauma” of Koreans in 2021, has officially announced the premiere of its second season on the 28th of next month.
Based on a webtoon of the same name by author Kim Bo-tong, ‘D.P.’ is a gripping drama that depicts the fresh subject of military desertion arrest teams, outstanding performances by the actors, and the violence and absurdity within the military, which can be seen as a microcosm of society.
After its release in August 2021, ‘D.P.’ was selected as one of the top 10 international TV shows by The New York Times and received the Best TV Drama award at the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards and the Best Work award at the 1st Cheongryong Series Awards.
In the teaser poster released prior to the season 2 premiere, the shocking cookie scene that followed the ending of season 1 continues. Kim Roo-ri (played by Moon Sang-hoon), a friend of deceased soldier Jung Seok-bong (played by Cho Hyun-chul), learns about Seok-bong’s death through the news and opens fire on his abusive superiors.
Season 2 begins anew, even with many events having taken place, within a reality that remains unchanged. Jung Hae-in, who plays the role of Ahn Joon-ho, stated, “It is a continuation of season 1, with unfinished stories and unresolved issues, allowing viewers to experience a more intense and profound narrative.”
