Orion Cinema Network (OCN), home of South Korea’s thriller dramas, has given its official position on the making of Missing: The Other Side 2.
On April 15, OCN revealed to Korean media outlet Dong-a.com, “It is true that a second season of Missing: The Other Side is in the works. However, the drama’s direction and casting are yet to be decided. The production is also pending.” Due to this, members of the original cast reportedly expressed that it is too early to decide on their comeback appearances.
Although the producers cautiously informed that the season two development is still in the planning stage, the chief producer (CP) stated last year that the series was already in discussions to get renewed after the first season gained significantly good reviews.
Missing: The Other Side treads along the fantasy, mystery, and thriller genres and follows a group of misfits who have set out to uncover the truth behind unsolved missing-person cases. Their journey leads them to a mysterious village that is said to hold the spirits of missing people, as well as the key to explaining their disappearances.
Helmed by director Min Yeon-hong (Touch), the first season featured stars Go Soo (Money Game), Heo Joon-ho (Kingdom 2), Ahn So-hee (Welcome to Waikiki 2), and many others. It recorded an average nationwide viewership rating of 3.287 percent, with a peak rating of 4.811 percent on its final episode.
