SEOUL, March 2 (Yonhap) -- "Queen of Mystery" is back for its second season, becoming South Korea's first TV series on a major terrestrial network to produce a second season written by the same scriptwriter and featuring the same cast members.
At a media event in Seoul on Feb. 26, producer Choi Yoon-suk said the new season tells a funnier, more suspenseful and more engaging story than the first season.
"As Yoo Seol-ok becomes a policewoman, the scale of her investigation gets bigger. She no longer goes after small cases happening in her neighborhood," the producer said.
The first season of "Queen of Mystery" aired on KBS2 from April 5 to May 25, 2017, and revolved around Yoo, played by Choi Kang-hee, the wife of a prosecutor who dreamt her whole life of becoming a police officer, and detective Ha Wan-seung.
The two make an unlikely investigative duo and collaborate on solving multiple cases. As Yoo becomes a policewoman in the new season, her detective skills and instincts are expected to improve, and the teamwork between the two will become stronger, the producer said, promising more action and realistic stories. The new series premiered on Wednesday.
