Netflix always has great South Korean shows, but D.P., its newest Original drama, might be one of the most popular shows since Love Alarm and Kingdom. Fans were already happy to hear that D.P. would be back for a second season, and they will be even happier to hear that the second season has just finished filming. Here, we’ll keep track of all the information you need about D.P. season 2.
D.P. is a South Korean crime-drama show on Netflix that was made by Han Jun Hee and is based on the webcomic D.P. Dog Day by Kim Bo Tong. Kim Bo Tong helped write the screenplay for the series, which is one reason why it has been so well received.
D.P. Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status
Official Renewal of Netflix Status: Renewed (most recent update: 14 December 2021)
After a few months of waiting, Netflix Korea announced on Twitter that D.P. will be back for a second season.
Outside of Europe and North America, D.P. did very well on Netflix. It spent several weeks in the top ten in many Asian countries. Most notably, the series was in South Korea’s top ten for 8 weeks, or 52 days.
The show has also done very well with critics and viewers, getting respectable 8.8 and 8.8 ratings on IMDb and MyDramaList, respectively.
Even though the show isn’t doing very well outside of Asia, it’s great to see Netflix invest in South Korean content.
D.P Season 2 Release Date
It was recently said that filming for the second season of D.P. is done.
Since filming will end in November 2022, it’s very unlikely that the k-drama will come back to Netflix before the end of the year. The most likely time for season 2 of D.P. to come out is in the spring of 2023.

What to Expect
The terrible things that happened at the end of the first season of D.P. will be dealt with in the second season.
After being picked on over and over again, Suk Bong snapped. He took Hwang Jang-Soo hostage and planned to kill him. Suk Bong doesn’t kill Hwang because of what Detective Na does, but Jun-Ho had to stop him from beating the deserter too much.
In a quick turn of events, Suk Bong was able to get Detective Han’s gun and chase after Hwang to finish what Hwang had started. Han begged Suk Bong to stop and offered to look into the accusations against Hwang and his unit in detail.
Even though Han and Jun-Ho tried to help, armed military police guards showed up and surrounded Suk-Bong. Suk Bong didn’t think he had much of a choice, so he shot himself in the head, but the bullet hit his neck instead of his head. He was left to bleed out in pain and call for his mother as he died.
After what happened with Suk Bong, Jun-Oh does something drastic and leaves his unit and commanding officer. Jun-Oh decides to leave the army even though he still has more than 500 days to go.
We can expect the following cast members:
- Jung Hae In
- Koo Kyo Hwan
- Kim Sung Kyun
- Son Seok Koo
- Shin Seung Ho
- Hong Kyung
- Lee Jun Young
Where Will Jun-oh Run to?
Even though Jun-Oh and his mother aren’t close, his mother’s house is where he should go. But since the military police already know where his mother lives, it wouldn’t take them long to find Jun-Oh.
Given that he was only a DP soldier for a short time, Jun-Oh will need to use what he learned and what he learned from those who left to avoid being caught.
The Fallout of Suk Bong’s Death
Bullying and harassment were common in the South Korean military, which led to the death of Suk Bong and several other service members.
Detective Han said he would look into everything about the military police unit where Suk Bong worked. If Han keeps his promise, the investigation that follows is likely to show that bullying has been going on for a long time and in a bad way.

Even so, there will have to be an investigation because a soldier who was being picked on snapped and used his machine gun to kill all the other men in his room. Even more, people have been hurt by the bullying culture.
