“The viewers will be able to see deeper chemistry among director Shin Won-ho, writer Lee Woo-jeong, and the cast members, building on the incredible teamwork they showed through the first season,” said tvN.

It added, “As the viewers have been anticipating the new season for a long time, we will do our best to offer a great show that meets their expectations.”
