Woo Do Hwan and Lee Sang Yi returning for Bloodhounds 2 – production confirmed

It was confirmed earlier today that the gripping 2023 Netflix action thriller K-drama, Bloodhounds is set for a highly anticipated second season.

Returning to reprise both their roles, and their bromance, are male leads Woo Do Hwan and Lee Sang Yi, which will thrill fans like nothing else.

Bloodhounds 2 follows on from first season

Based on Jeong Chan’s webtoon of the same name, the first season of Bloodhounds delved into the tumultuous world of loan sharks.

It followed two former marines and boxers, Kim Geon Woo (played by Woo Do Hwan) and Hong Woo Jin (Lee Sang Yi), who go after a group of loan sharks after Geon Woo’s mother inadvertently takes out an illegal loan to help safe her small cafe.

Against a backdrop of moral ambiguity, our protagonists battled against powerful adversaries, their struggle resonating deeply with audiences and causing the Korean drama to become a big hit on Netflix.

There isn’t much information yet on Bloodhounds, Season 2, except that production is slated to start in the latter half of 2024, so it appears it will be 2025 before the K-drama is released, and that it will continue to tell Kim Geon Woo and Hong Woo Jin’s story.

Woo Do Hwan and Lee Sang Yi starring in other dramas in 2024

As you may expect if you have watched any one of the two actors’ previous project, both Woo Do Hwan and Lee Sang Yi are in high demand.

Woo Do Hwan, who recently starred in the highly-rated Joseon Attorney: A Morality, is already filming Mr. Plankton, another Netflix drama, this year, as well as starring in another boxing-themed project — this time the movie Night Fever — which recently filmed in Bangkok.

Meanwhile, Lee Sang Yi, who has already appeared in this year’s My Demon, has main roles in both JTBC’s drama Good Boy and Because I Want No Loss.

We’ll update you as more information about Bloodhounds 2 comes out, but it’s safe to say this one will likely be another big Netflix hit.
