  1. 1 : Dino Says:

  3. 3 : mavi Says:

    ooo , superrrr

  4. 4 : MaxT Says:

    Hopefully it’s better than season 1.

  5. 5 : Warren Lauzon Says:

    The first one was on NetFlix, not sure if this one will be or not. Listed on a non-official NetFlix site as yes, but that has not been reliable in the past. Anything with Bae Doona is a must watch.

  6. 6 : Delly Says:


  7. 7 : annmasae Says:

    So excited for this drama. Glad Bae Doona and Cho Seung Woo are back. Hope it is as good as the first one. Hopefully Netflix picks it up again. Now waiting for Signal to have a second season too.

  8. 8 : shiva Says:

    omg can’t Waite for this finally

  9. 9 : High5 Squad Says:

    waaaaaaaaaa!!!!! my reaction when i found out. so excited

  10. 10 : Dino Says:

    Huhuhummm …. for a minute was feeling happy thinking only about a week more to wait. Gosh…. how wrong was I. The drama wont start until mid-August…. oh no oh no !!! 😩🙀 Getting impatient….

  11. 11 : Dino Says:

    Counting the days….. !! Its the month of August now…

  12. 12 : andinn Says:

    i’ve been waiting for season 2. Cho Seung Woo and Bae Doo Na is the reason why I love this series so much..besides the story line. Finally they made season 2 for real and I hope it worth waited just like season 1.,,or better…

  13. 13 : phoenix Says:

    yesss im so stoked! season 1 was sooo good, hopefully season 2 can live up to, if not surpass it!

  14. 14 : Dino Says:

    Five more days….. !!

  15. 15 : Dino Says:

    Am I dreaming ? Almost there …. ??

    Cant wait to meet the incredible pair of Hwang ShiMok and HanYJ again !! Missed them much.

  16. 16 : Joanna Says:

    Awesome! Can’t wait to watch it on Netflix – Oct 11 (at least here, in Poland). Loved season 1.

  17. 17 : DinoThePatientDinosaur Says:

    Had my heart set to watch this drama so bad. Counted the days… a day at a time. Looking sooo forward to it. Parked myself in front of tv, and waited on screening day and the whole of next day. It was in vain !!

    Dang it !! Looks like it will not be shown yet at where I live. Muah hahah !! I wanna cry !! How disappointing. 😡

    There was no news or announcement to this effect. No wonder, what we suddenly have on tv, was a repeat of Season 1 again, which I’ve already watched a few times !!

    Ok… will take it easy this time. If Season 2 comes, it comes. If not? I wont fret. I’ll let it go…. hehe… maybe I will still get to watch it in a few months time?? Hopefully …

  18. 18 : stela Says:

    I just watched Ep 1 of Season 2. I loved it!

  19. 19 : annmasae Says:

    Watched on Netflix in the US this past weekend. Loved it. However, it is a little more serious than season 1 because it discusses the conflicts between the police and prosecution. It talks about the Korean constitution and Korean political history. I still found it very interesting but it may not have the broad appeal of the murder case from the prior season. Good to see Cho Seung Wo and Bae Doo Na again. Also the young police lieutenant is back. Hope the series does well so we have a Season 3.

  20. 20 : Dinopie Says:

    I wonder when will the drama be shown where I live. I tried to be stoic about having to wait for it to come, but I still cant resist creeping in here to peek at the comments viewers leave behind. Hehe !! Thanks guys !! At least from the comments, I have a rough picture of the story.

    I am basically curious about how the dynamics between three powerful government law enforcement agencies are going to play out. Choi Bit the female head of the intel agency in particular interests me. There must be a good reason why this character is featured in the drama. Jun Hye Jin who plays Choi Bit here was a successful hardhitting CEO of an IT organisation in another drama Search:WWW. Will she be the same here? I am curious to know. Possibly yes.

    As for the matters that bring these three powerful agencies to a “showdown” , I am curious about it too, and also about how these powerful people tick. Will they “burn the house down”? Or will they amicably reach a compromise or solution?

    Lets wait and see….

  21. 21 : Juliyana Chou Says:

    My favorite ever!!
    My Duo best favorite couple on the screen.
    And never dissapoint me about the plot and conspiration.
    Who doesnt know? Who doesnt agree?
    Fiction of Fact probably same with our reality life we face.
    Corruption and use their each connection and relation in every department of goverment.
    Fight each others.

  22. 22 : OK OK OK Says:

    Nice – waiting for last episode tonight 🙂

  23. 23 : annmasae Says:

    Wonderful conclusion to Season 2. This screenwriter does a great job and doesn’t leave you hanging like so many other dramas. Looks like there will be a Season 3 because of some unfinished story lines. Shi Mok and Yeo Jin work are a great team. Please…. Please another season.

  24. 24 : Cheryl H Says:

    Episode 16 is a huge letdown! How did Donjae recover so quickly with no scars from his weeks of torture.

  25. 25 : tigerb Says:

    a good series to watch. a lesson to learn if one is in the justice department: don’t be used! wonder how the first series went. should i watch it?

  26. 26 : Mikha Stacia Says:

    Season 3 please..already miss si-mok and yeo-jin..the best duo and korean series this year…Weekend without stranger will be like😭😭😭 pls do not make us wait too long for season 3🙏🙏

  27. 27 : Shiva Says:

    Preferred season 1 over 2 too much taking in season 2 got bored in middle of it, and too many names and cases to remember

  28. 28 : Sekar Says:

    I hope there will be a third season.

  29. 29 : laura Says:

    i love them … the character, the story line, and of course mr. hwang … fall in love with mr. hwang ..and moment they are together ..

  30. 30 : laura Says:
