Cho Seung Woo and Bae Donna express excitement as the new season is coming up. Cho Seung Woo said:
I’ve been really waiting for this, and I’m happy that we’re getting a second season. When I first got my hands on the ‘Forest of Secrets’ script, it was so refreshing and I made my decision to appear in the drama after reading through just the first two episodes. This season’s script is great as well. I’m excited to be coming back.
Bae Donna added:
At first, I was slightly taken aback by the change.It made me wonder how Han Yeo Jin is feeling, and whether she’s feeling lonely and worn out.” She added that she began to understand the motivations of her character as she read the script and explained, “I think during her work in the serious crimes unit, she must have seen the administrative problems that plagued the division and felt the desire to learn the ropes so she could better the system. Han Yeo Jin is in a different place, but she is there to learn, change, and grow.
Forest of Secrets 2 follows the drama ‘It’s Okay Not to Be Okay’ and premieres this August 15 at 9 PM KST on tvN. -HallyuLife.com
