5 Korean Dramas that deserve a second season

Lately, Korean Dramas are getting a second season easily but I feel like there are dramas that truly deserve one! So I decided to make a small list of dramas that I’ve watched and thought that they really need a second season!This is based on my own preferences.

Liar Game: (2014)

I still can’t forget this drama or it’s ending even though it’s been almost 5 years since it aired! It’s on my top 10 favorite dramas, It was so good, I remember I got hooked from the first episode, It was truly full of excitement and unpredictable twists! This was also my first Shin Sung Rok & Lee Sang Yoon drama and SSR’s line in the end “It’s not the end, It’s the beginning. This was just a test” and then his character disappeared in a car accident, doesn’t this just prove that it needs a second season?

The drama is about various contestants take part in a game show with a prize of 10 billion won wherein contestants are encouraged to cheat and lie. The contestants who able to cheat the others will wins the prize but debt if he/she loses the game. Contestants include genius swindler Cha Woo Jin (Lee Sang Yoon) and naive college student Nam Da Jung (Kim So Eun). Meanwhile, Kang Do Young (Shin Sung Rok) will play the MC and planner of this game show.


Missing Noir M: (2015)

I talked about this in my underrated dramas post, this is truly one of my favorite crime dramas! I remember how shocked I was when I watched the ending because the good detective did something he shouldn’t do and I know he regrets it, I’m curious about whether he will get out of that crime or not, also Gil Soo Hyun’s story is not finished yet, I want to know more about the email he got! to put it simply, the story is not finished and OCN needs to give us the second season!!

The drama is about Gil Soo Hyun, who is extremely intelligent. At the age of 10, he attended Harvard University and after graduating, he went to work at the FBI. 10 years later, he decided to come back to South Korea. He now works as the leader of the Special Missing Persons Unit. The unit deals with about 1% of special missing cases involving violent crimes. His appearance borders on perfection, but he holds a secret. Detective Oh Dae Yeong joins the Special Missing Persons Unit. He has worked as a detective for 20 years and he has an obsession in observing the law. He is known as a master of missing person cases.


Signal: (2016)

I still sometimes listen to the OST, it just has a special place in my heart, I really love this drama so much! It had a happy ending but I still want to see the three leads together! This drama was truly perfect, from the story to the acting and I really think it deserves a second season and thankfully writer Kim Eun Hee actually hinted that season 2 may air this year! *fingers crossed*

The drama is about a walkie-talkie in the present somehow picks up signals from a detective Lee Jae Han (Jo Jin Woong) who he is in the past. Police profiler Park Hae Young (Lee Je Hoon) finds this walkie-talkie and uses it to help solve cold cases. Detective Cha Soo Hyun (Kim Hye Soo), who was once a rookie at Lee Jae Han’s station, leads the cold-case team. The team starts to solve infamous cold cases, but communicating with the past has consequences.


The Good Wife: (2016)

I loved watching this drama even though it’s not the genre I usually drawn toward. It had an amazing cast and acting, intelligent writing and an intriguing storyline. I haven’t watched the original, so I really have nothing to compare it to. I loved how our protagonist was gaining strength as the story progressed, she seriously had good chemistry with both leads and Yoon Kye Sang won my heart here. I will do anything just to see this amazing cast again!

The drama is about a woman, Kim Hye Kyung (Jun Do Yun) who assumes responsibility for her family after her husband, Lee Tae Joon (Yoo Ji Tae) is thrown into prison after a very public scandal. Lee Tae Joon is a prosecutor with the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office who gets sent to prison and whose wife is then propelled to return to her former career as a lawyer to support her family.


Secret Forest: (2017)

I know it’s another strong drama with strong cast hehe this drama is love! It has great writing, great acting and great directing! I can’t believe that it had only one case yet the development was interesting and unpredictable till the end! The leads didn’t need any romance to show their amazing chemistry! I really hope they give us another season!

The drama is about a chase thriller where a prosecutor who has lost his emotions explores the secrets inside the prosecution office and chases the real criminals along with a righteous police officer.


+ Bonus:

Moon Lovers – Scarlet Heart: Ryeo (2016):

I’m not sure if this drama needs a second season but i’m sure we at least deserve a special episode so we can get the happy ending we deserve especially that the cast have already filmed a scene in the present but they somehow didn’t air it! I really hope they decide to release it some day…

The drama is set up in the early of Goryeo regime. Hae Soo (IU), a 25 year old girl from modern era got transported back to Goryeo dynasty and got trapped in the conflicts and struggles between princes of Wang’s House. There, she falls in love with Wang So (Lee Joon Ki) who makes other people tremble with fear.
