With an exciting new story that takes place in 2024 Seoul’s busy streets rather than the turbulent spring of 1945, Gyeongseong Creature makes a triumphant comeback. This sequel, set against the backdrop of horrific inventions produced of human greed, intertwines the fates of Jang Tae-sang and Yoon Chae-ok even further.
Season 1’s interesting post-credit sequence reveals that Season 2 takes a major jump in time. In this critical moment, a character named “Ho-jae” who bears a strong likeness to Jang Tae-sang turns to display a mystery scar, sparking a rush of questions about his identity and the scar’s origin. This scene introduces the series’ time travel element, shifting the setting to Seoul in 2024. The newly released stills heighten the mystery by catching Chae-ok at a pivotal point and hinting at a season filled with cryptic occurrences and connections.

Season 1 enthralled audiences worldwide with its unusual blend of period drama and supernatural elements, gaining great accolades from foreign media. CNN declared that “[it] deserves to be a monster hit,” while TIME magazine stated that “it is also about the world we live in today.” Season 1 debuted in the Global TOP 10 (Non-English) in just three days, rising to third place and appearing in the TOP 10 list of 69 countries worldwide, including Brazil, Japan, Singapore, France, and Australia.
The series’ suspense is heightened by the cliffhanger from Season 1’s finale and the expectation of how the characters’ stories will unfold. Actors such as Park Seo-jun and Han So-hee have hinted at the new season’s deeper character growth and emotional depth, which will continue the show’s status as a global sensation while diving into the mysteries of time travel and fate.
A more expansive and dynamic plot will be unveiled in Gyeongseong Creature Season 2, which will stream exclusively on Netflix.
