Lee Joon Hyuk Confirmed To Star In Upcoming “Forest Of Secrets” Spin-Off Drama
tvN’s “Forest of Secrets” (also known as “Stranger”) is getting a spin-off series focused on Lee Joon Hyuk’s character Seo Dong Jae!
After two seasons of “Forest of Secrets,” the hit tvN drama is returning with a spin-off series titled “Good or Bad Dong Jae” (literal title). On February 9, production company Studio Dragon confirmed to dongA.com, “Writer Lee Soo Yeon, who wrote the ‘Forest of Secrets’ series, will participate as a creator for ‘Good or Bad Dong Jae.’ As the main character, actor Lee Joon Hyuk has been cast and his appearance has been confirmed. The [broadcast] platform has not been decided.”
“Forest of Secrets” first aired in 2017 and told the story of an emotionless prosecutor named Hwang Si Mok (Cho Seung Woo) and a warm-hearted police officer named Han Yeo Jin (Bae Doona) who join forces to solve hidden mysteries and investigate corruption. In 2020, the show returned with a second season where Hwang Si Mok and Han Yeo Jin reunited after two years under different circumstances, with the pair on opposite sides of a tense situation involving the police and the prosecutor’s office.
Lee Joon Hyuk starred in both seasons as Seo Dong Jae, a corrupt prosecutor. In this role, the actor earned lots of praise and was applauded for his ability to play an unlikeable character that viewers were still able to understand. Now, the actor will reprise his role in the upcoming spin-off that focuses on Seo Dong Jae’s character.
