Go Soo, Heo Joon Ho, Ha Jun, And More Share How Comforting It Is To Be Back For “Missing: The Other Side 2”
On December 15, tvN’s upcoming drama “Missing: The Other Side 2” held an online press conference with director Min Yeon Hong and cast members Go Soo, Heo Joon Ho, Ahn So Hee, Ha Jun, Lee Jung Eun, and Kim Dong Hwi.
“Missing: The Other Side” is a mystery fantasy drama about a village inhabited by the souls of people who went missing while they were alive. After two years, the series is returning for a second season with Go Soo, Heo Joon Ho, Ahn So Hee, and more reprising their roles.
At the press conference, director Min Yeon Hong first broke the tension by joking, “If I may, [I want to] clear up a cute misunderstanding about the first season: our drama is actually a heartwarming drama.” He then continued, “In Season 1, Heo Joon Ho left a strong impression with his charisma in his first scene, so the viewers wondered, ‘Is this a scary drama?’ Our tactics to grab viewers’ attention was too intense that viewers thought, ‘I don’t think I can watch it because it’s too scary.’ However, when they uncovered the truth, many realized it’s a nice and heartwarming drama. I want to introduce Season 2 as a mystery fantasy drama that will bring you both warmth and laughter.”
On joining the new season, Lee Jung Eun and Kim Dong Hwi shared their thoughts. Lee Jung Eun said, “I was such a big fan of the first season. So when I met the director after getting the offer, I was so immersed in listening to him explain about the project that I just immediately decided [to join] on the spot.”
Similarly, Kim Dong Hwi shared that he’s also a huge fan of “Missing: The Other Side” and instantly said yes to the audition offer because he wanted to do it no matter what. “I watched Season 1 passionately on television and had wished that I could play even a small role in Season 2. [Thankfully], I was able to join the cast because the directors looked positively upon me.”
Returning cast Ha Jun and Go Soo also shared how happy they were to be back. Ha Jun remarked that it felt like he was coming back to his hometown, while Go Soo said that he actually filmed Season 2 more comfortably than Season 1. Hearing this, Heo Joon Ho commented, “Go Soo is actually a really quiet guy. But we’ve gotten really close while filming, and now he’s affectionately hitting me all the time.”
Regarding her chemistry with Heo Joon Ho, Ahn So Hee also shared, “He treated me so comfortably every time I got nervous in Season 1,” explaining that Heo Joon Ho was a great help in developing her character.
On the excellent cast lineup, director Min Yeon Hong said, “I am 200 percent satisfied with the casting. I was very grateful at the time too, so I loved and enjoyed working on the project. I remembered filming with such a good atmosphere on the set [back then], so it’s so nice and enjoyable to be able to work [on the new season] together again like this.”
