The story of Jang Tae-sang (Park Seo-joon) and Yoon Chae-ok (Han So-hee) goes from 1945 to 2024, as a second season of “Gyeongseong Creature” has been confirmed.

Before the announcement, the K-drama’s final episode showed an unconscious Chae-ok falling into the lake with her missing mother — who turned out to be the feared monster at Ongseong Hospital. The female lead then inherited the Najin, a parasitic organism used to experiment on those under Japan’s colonies, which brings her back to life.


A post-credits scene shifted to a brief documentary of South Korea’s history which quickly transformed into a modern-day Seoul. A man named Ho-jae, who bore a scar on his nape, was then called and is a carbon copy of Tae-sang.


The series’ director Chung Dong-yoon then confirmed that the series is greenlit for a second season, which expands the lead characters’ fates.

“Season 2 presents a story with a completely different charm. The change in space and period will provide a clear distinction, offering an expanded universe feel,” he said in a statement.

Details about the exact premiere date, as well as Park and Han’s characters, are yet to be revealed, as of this writing. It also remains unclear if their co-stars Soo Hyun, Claudia Kim, Wi Ha-jun, and Jo Han-chul will be joining them in the show’s second installment.

Park emerged as a breakout star in his home country in 2015, after starring in the series “Kill Me, Heal Me” and “She Was Pretty.” He also took lead roles in the shows “Fight for My Way,” “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim,” and “Itaewon Class.” He also made an appearance in the superhero film “The Marvels.”

Meanwhile, Han’s breakthrough came in 2020 as she starred as the male lead’s mistress in the hit series “The World of the Married.” She also appeared in “Nevertheless,” “My Name,” and “Soundtrack # 1.”
