What to expect from the second season of PD?
final ending recap
The second season of PD will deal with the aftermath of the devastating fallout at the end of Season 1.
After being relentlessly harassed, Suk Bong snapped and took Hwang Jang-Soo hostage with the intent to kill him. It is thanks to Detective Na’s actions that he stops Suk Bong from killing Hwang, but Jun-Ho had to stop him from beating the defector too much.
In a quick turn of events, Suk Bong was able to grab Detective Han’s gun and chased after Hwang to finish what he had started. Han pleaded with Suk Bong to step down and offered him a full-scale investigation into the allegations against Hwang and his unit.
Despite Han and Jun-Ho’s intervention, armed military police guards appear and surround Suk-Bong. With few options in his mind, Suk Bong shoots himself in the head, but shoots himself in the neck and not the head, leaving him bleeding in pain, helplessly calling out to his mother.
In the aftermath of the incident with Suk Bong, Jun-Oh takes drastic measures and distances himself from his commanding officer and his unit. Despite having more than 500 days of military service left, Jun-Oh decides to go on the run.
Where will Jun-Oh run to?
Despite being separated from his mother, the natural place for Jun-Oh to run away is his mother’s. But since the military police know the address of his mother, it won’t be long before they find Jun-Oh.
Given his brief experience working as a DP soldier, Jun-Oh will need to use his experiences and the experiences of those who defected to evade capture.
The consequences of Suk Bong’s death
The culture of intimidation and harassment within the South Korean military ultimately led to the deaths of Suk Bong and several other military personnel.
Detective Han promised a full investigation of the military police unit to which Suk Bong was assigned. If Han follows through on his promise, the resulting investigation is likely to uncover a long and unhealthy past of bullying.
However, an investigation will have to take place anyway, as an intimidated soldier uses his machine gun to kill all the men in his room. Even more victims of the insistent culture of bullying.
