Secret Forest 2 has an ambitious come back with a quality core cast and the message of hitting the Korean political and social hot spot.
The first two episodes of Secret Forest 2 aired in the anticipation of many viewers. The film is expected to become the next representative of the political and criminal detective series, which lacks quality works in recent times.

In general, Secret Forest 2 has initially completed the construction of the context and a source of the core conflict on a relatively large scale, although there are still details that confuse the audience because the amount of information is crammed quite a lot.
Due to the peculiarities of the political detective movie series, Secret Forest 2 will have a long way to go to push the climax and solve its macro-level bottlenecks as well as prove the quality under the shadow too big of the previous part.
