Cho Seung Woo Is As Stoic As Ever In Upcoming 2nd Season Of tvN’s “Forest Of Secrets”
tvN’s upcoming sequel to “Forest of Secrets” released the first set of stills of Cho Seung Woo!
“Forest of Secrets” (also known as “Stranger”) is a drama about an emotionless prosecutor Hwang Si Mok (Cho Seung Woo) and a warm-hearted police officer Han Yeo Jin (Bae Doona) who join forces to solve hidden mysteries and investigate corruption. The first season, which aired in 2017, followed the duo as they worked together to catch a serial killer and expose corruption within the prosecutor’s office.
Previously, Cho Seung Woo impressed with his skillful portrayal of Hwang Si Mok, creating great tension throughout the drama. On July 14, tvN released new stills of Cho Seung Woo, depicting his memorable strong and quiet aura once again.
Unlike most, Hwang Si Mok was born with a highly developed insular lobe which caused him to be extremely sensitive to even the slightest of sounds. In order to be able to carry out daily life activities, he received surgery to remove part of the lobe. However, the aftereffect was that he lost his empathy skills. He can no longer strongly feel emotions such as sympathy, love, happiness, and sadness. The newly released stills portray this emotionless aspect of him.
Nonetheless, Hwang Si Mok’s return in season two is more welcoming than ever for viewers. Although he lacks emotion, Hwang Si Mok stands strong against temptations and has the ability to look at cases objectively. In particular, season two of “Forest of Secrets” will deal with the battle between prosecutors, who want to keep their investigative powers, and the police force, who want to carry out their investigations independently. Although Hwang Si Mok is technically on the side of the prosecutors, viewers are still curious to see what stance the rational Hwang Si Mok will take in the upcoming drama.
The production team of “Forest of Secrets 2” shared, “Hwang Si Mok will face a new environment and meet new figures. A point to anticipate is what side of himself Hwang Si Mok will showcase in the new ‘Forest of Secrets’ when viewers meet him again after two years have passed. Please show lots of interest for the upcoming premiere of “Forest of Secrets 2′ to find out what truth Hwang Si Mok, who silently carries out his work without discriminating between the cold-hearted and warm-hearted, will approach.
“Forest of Secrets” will premiere in August as the follow-up to “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.”
