tvN has shared cast photos from the first script reading of “Missing: The Other Side” Season 2!
“Missing: The Other Side” is a mystery fantasy drama set in a village inhabited by the souls of people who went missing while they were alive. There, a group of people search for missing bodies and try to discover what happened to each of them.
Earlier this year in April, tvN confirmed that the drama was preparing to launch a second season. In June, it was announced that Go Soo, Heo Joon Ho, Ahn So Hee, and Ha Jun would reprise their roles, with Lee Jung Eun and Kim Dong Hwi joining the cast.
Present at the drama’s first script reading were directors Min Yeon Hong and Lee Ye Rim, writers Ban Gi Ri and Jung So Young, and cast members Go Soo, Heo Joon Ho, Ahn So Hee, Ha Jun, Lee Jung Eun, Kim Dong Hwi, Song Geon Hee, Ji Dae Han, Kwon Ah Reum, Lim Sun Woo, Jung Eun Pyo, Choi Myung Bin, and more.
Ahead of the reading, lead actor Go Soo commented, “I’m happy to be able to meet again with those I worked with on ‘Missing: The Other Side,’ and I welcome those who have joined ‘Missing’ Season 2. Let’s create a good project altogether.” Heo Joon Ho added, “A miracle has happened. Since this is a good drama, I hope it becomes a drama that goes for a long time until Season 10.” As a representative for all the new cast members, Lee Jung Eun jokingly shared, “I’m happy to join this miracle. I hope that another miracle occurs so I can join the next season too, so please don’t kill me off.”
As soon as the reading began, all the cast members were instantly engrossed in their roles. Go Soo will return as Kim Wook, a talented con artist who can talk his way out of anything. With his virtuous charms and righteous charisma, Go Soo holds firm as the reliable core of the cast and story.
Heo Joon Ho returns to his role as Jang Pan Seok, who bridges the outside world with the mysterious village and is still grieving his daughter. The actor powerfully led the reading and conveyed laughter and touching emotions to the cast and crew while showing off his incredible chemistry with Go Soo.
Ahn So Hee will reprise her role as the brilliant civil servant Lee Jong Ah who leads a double life as a hacker. Ha Jun returns as Shin Joon Ho, a smart, stubborn, and elite detective who was hostile towards Kim Wook and Jang Pan Seok in Season 1.
Lee Jung Eun and Kim Dong Hwi will play new characters in the upcoming season of “Missing: The Other Side.” Lee Jung Eun stars as the cute ghost Kang Eun Shil, while Kim Dong Hwi plays Oh Il Yong, who is at the center of the new village mystery.
The production team shared, “During ‘Missing 1,’ we remember the teamwork being incredibly great on set. After doing a script reading for the first time in two years, we’re confident that more special synergies will blow up in ‘Missing 2.’ We will film diligently to showcase a good drama to viewers who have waited for ‘Missing 2.’ Please look forward to it.”
