After its undeniable success, Netflix confirms the production of season two of its hit South Korean series D.P. With that, prepare to join the characters as they take another yet unknown pursuit!
Released on the 27th of August this year, Kim Bo-Tong‘s webtoon novel D.P. Dog’s Day will take new heights with director Han Jun-hee, who helmed the films Coin Locker Girl and Hit-and-Run Squad. Reuniting with author Kim Bo-Tong, they will be making the viewers’ highly anticipated sequel.
Shedding light on neglected stories of AWOL soldiers
D.P. (stands for Deserter Pursuit) tells the story of a team of Korean military police in search of their comrades who have fled their stations. It unravels social issues which have come to light through the series.
With the talented cast consisting of Jung Hae-in, Han Ho-yeul, Kim Sung-kyun, and Son Suk-ku, the series succeeded in portraying the lives of the soldiers and the unfortunate events behind them. The series made a bold and brave take on depicting the harsh reality existing in society.
Unsurprisingly, it had received positive responses both domestically and internationally. Earlier this month, the 6-episode series had been listed on The New York Times’ Best International Shows of 2021.
With a rating of 3 out of 5, New Musical Express (NME) commended the performance and production. On the other hand, Ready Set Cut described the Korean drama as “one of the finest K-Drama mini-series released this year.”
