This continuation, set against the backdrop of monstrous creations born from human greed, further entwines the fates of Jang Tae-sang and Yoon Chae-ok.
From Past To Present
Season 2 makes a dramatic time jump, as revealed in the intriguing post-credit footage of Season 1.

Director Chung Dong-yoon shares his vision for this new chapter, stating, “Season 2 presents a story with a completely different charm. The change in space and time period will provide a clear distinction, offering an expanded universe feel.”
Season 1 captivated audiences worldwide with its unique blend of period drama and fantastical elements, earning high praise from international media. CNN hailed it as “a monster hit,” while TIME magazine noted, “It is also about the world we live in today.”
A Successful Run
Interestingly, just three days after release, the first season gained a spot in the Global TOP 10 (Non-English), rising to third place, and appeared in the TOP 10 list of 69 countries including Brazil, Japan, Singapore, France and Australia.
The suspense around the series is further fuelled by the cliffhanger from Season 1’s finale and the anticipation of how the characters’ narratives will evolve over 78 years. All we know for sure is that season 2 is set to be a roller coaster of emotional depth. Gyeongseong Creature Season 2, set to premiere exclusively on Netflix, is poised to reveal a larger, more dynamic story so don’t miss it.
