The filming for season 2 of Netflix Korea’s original series “D.P.” (2021-) has wrapped.
“Season 2 of ‘D.P.’ has finished filming. Thank you everyone,” actor Son Suk-ku wrote on his Instagram on Friday. The actor also posted a handwritten seoye (Korean calligraphy) of the Korean title of the series.
Actor Jung Hae-in uploaded a selfie wearing a military uniform on his Instagram Thursday, with the caption “Please wait in anticipation for season 2 of ‘D.P.’”
Based on the webtoon “D.P: Dog Days” by Kim Bo-tong, the series tells the story of the “deserter pursuit” team in the Korean military. The team’s mission is to track down soldiers who have deserted their bases. Season 1 starred actors Jung, Koo Kyo-hwan, Kim Sung-kyun and Son.
The series was widely praised in Korea, a nation which has mandatory military service, for its realistic portrayal of the Korean military and incidents of cruelty that happen on base.
Currently, all able-bodied Korean men between the ages of 18 and 36 have to carry out their mandatory military service for a minimum of one year and six months.
Season 2 of the series will continue to be led by director Han Jun-hee and writer Kim Bo-tong. The new season will hit the streaming service next year.
