The plot synopsis doesn't sound very promising or interesting tbh so its a good thing I watched the first season otherwise I would skip this. Lie. I'd check it out since its a crime/police/prosecutor drama which is one of my favorite form of kdrama. We don't usually get 2nd seasons for kdramas but I'm glad they made one for Forest of Secrets. Season 1 is also on Netflix so you can binge watch if you want to.
The first 2 episodes continues the thrill with the same strong storytelling. And South Korea agrees as it is off to a good start ratings-wise.
