The hit Netflix Korea series “D.P.” has been confirmed for a second season, according to the streaming platform on Tuesday.  
 
Based on the webtoon “D.P: Dog Days” by Kim Bo-tong, the series tells the story of the “deserter pursuit” team in the Korean military. The team’s mission is to track down soldiers who have deserted their bases. Season 1 starred actors Jung Hae-in, Koo Kyo-hwan, Kim Sung-kyun and Son Suk-ku.
 
The series was widely praised in Korea, a nation which has mandatory military service, for its realistic portrayal of the Korean military and incidents of cruelty that happen on base.
 
Currently, all able-bodied Korean men between the ages of 18 and 36 have to carry out their mandatory military service for a minimum of one year and six months.  
 

Earlier this month, “D.P.” was selected as one of the “Best TV Shows of 2021” by The New York Times.
 
Webtoon artist Kim and the series’ director Han Jun-hee focused on the obscure, almost-taboo topic of military deserters and the soldiers tasked with arresting them. The two will join forces again for season 2.
