Gyeongseong Creature, a historical fantasy thriller starring Han So-hee and Park Seo-joon, was the talk of the town on Netflix. Here’s a thorough overview of all the details from release dates, cast, and more.

Fans couldn’t have asked for a better casting than My Name star Han So-hee and new MCU star Park Seo-joon. Gyeongseong Creature aired at the end of 2023 on Netflix and focuses on a monstrous creature, experiments, and humanity.

A bounty hunter and her father find themselves needing the help of Tae-sang, a local wealthy man known for information. As people go missing at the local hospital, they soon realize their paths are intertwined with a horrid mystery within.

The K-drama would be a rarity joining the success of Sweet Home, as it was announced to have been greenlit for a Season 2 before its official premiere. Here’s everything to know about the K-drama.

Gyeongseong Creature: What’s the K-drama about?

A rich and personable male lead finds himself meeting a young woman skilled in finding people. Together they face hidden horror as monsters created by greed pose a deadly threat.

According to Netflix, Gyeongseong Creature’s plot reads, “Set in early 1945 when Korea was under Japanese colonial rule, the series centers around two young adults who encounter strange creatures born from greed, and then must battle for survival in the city of Gyeongseong — now known as Seoul. But it turns out, there may be something even more dangerous out there than the creatures themselves.”

Park Seo-joon was announced to play the lead as Jang Tae-sang, a wealthy man who’s the best at finding information. Meanwhile, Han So-hee stars as Yoon Chae-ok, a strong-willed woman who is skilled at finding missing people as a todogun. Traveling with her father throughout China, she learned to survive. When her mother went missing 10 years ago, she ventures to Gyeongseong for answers.

Gyeongseong Creature has Tae-sang take up investigating a series of missing person cases and crossing paths with Chae-ok. His sense of justice changes after meeting her. K-drama fans may be wondering where the title Gyeongseong Creature comes from. Gyeongseong was the original name for Korea’s capital city before it became Seoul.

In the official trailer, fans get more details of what’s in store. Chae-ok is on the hunt to find someone and crosses paths with Tae-sang.

Gyeoseong Creature: Will there be a Season 2?

Yes! A Season 2 was already in the works before the official Season 1 release on Netflix.

Since the first season wrapped, Netflix’s Tudum even revealed teasers for the new season. It would take place in present-day Seoul with Han and Park returning to their respective roles. A mysterious character named Ho-jae bears a striking resemblance to Tae-sang, but is it really him? Chae-ok has also changed and raises the question of what evil they will face next.

Gyeongseong Creature is one of the many K-dramas returning with a new season in 2024, along with brand new fresh K-dramas.
