KBS 2TV Wed-Thu drama ‘IRIS 2’ is set to make its grand debut this February and it has already garnered a lot of attention from the public prior to broadcast. Many viewers are feeling intrigued and excited as it serves as a sequel to ‘IRIS’ and the production company has already promised beforehand that the thrills will be doubled and the story is set to be even more expansive.
Ahead of the broadcast, let us reveal the 5 highlights that makes ‘IRIS 2’ a must watch for viewers.
NSS (National Security Agency) is the intelligence agency of South Korea, where the staff are tasked to do special missions for the country. They can’t reveal their actual job scope to even their own families. Following the death of top agent Hyung Jun, the capable Choi Min (Oh Yeon Soo) becomes the agency’s deputy director. The department houses TF-A team leader Jung Yoo Gun (Jang Hyuk), Ji Soo Yeon (Lee Da Hae), Seo Hyun Woo (B2ST’s Doojoon), Yoon Shi Hyuk (MBLAQ’s Lee Joon), and others where they will put their lives on the line as they perform their top secret missions.
The global terrorist organization that remains a blur to many. It profits from sales of military weaponry to countries that are at loggerheads with each other, or groups that are fighting civil wars. It is like a virus that’s implanted in governments around the world as they seek to promote conflicts instead of peace. ‘IRIS 2’ will see them set in motion a grand plan to set North and South Korea against each other, and their battle of destiny against NSS that seeks to stop them from doing so.
# Reunification of the Korean Peninsula committee gets set up
A committee for the Reunification of the Korean Peninsula is set up, but its existence comes under immediate threat to get dissolved following the involvement of IRIS and global interference. Joong Won (Lee Bum Soo) meets Yoo Gun after the involvement of Young Hwa (Im Soo Hyang) in a terrorist attack during a reunification meeting. The committee becomes the sparkplug to heightening the conflict between various groups, and voices the reality of the present situation facing the public, and thus allows viewers to get into the drama more easily.
# Mysterious black-clothed man
We only saw a glimpse of the man known as Mister Black who is the mastermind of IRIS in the original drama, but his true identity will be revealed in the sequel. With IRIS team leader Lay and assassin Young Hwa, Mister Black will sorely test viewer’s ability to put the pieces together with his craftiness and presence to move the story forward.
# Baek San
In the first season, Baek San was a double-headed agent who was the NSS director and yet under the control of IRIS’s Mister Black. In the upcoming sequel, he will continue to filter between NSS and IRIS, and makes one speculate on whether he will be the one to reveal the innermost workings of IRIS once and for all.
A related personnel revealed, “‘IRIS 2’ will reveal the intricate politics of South and North Korea, and the tension in their show of military might. With its grand scale and compact story, the drama will attempt to push the Korean drama industry into an all-new revolution.”
'IRIS 2' will take over from 'Jeon Woo Chi' and begin its broadcast from February 13th.
