Kim Se-jeong is positively looking over the role for ‘The Uncanny Counter’ Season 2

Fans finally get an update about the popular fantasy storyline. According to Soompi, Kim Se-jeong has received an offer to return for The Uncanny Counter Season 2 in a leading role. While the news does not explicitly report that she will return as her original character, fans can speculate that she will take up the role of Do Ha-na.

The actor’s agency, Jellyfish Entertainment, reported, “She is positively reviewing the offer [to star in ‘The Uncanny Counter 2’].” Not more information was shared about the new season, its storyline, or its returning cast. But with Kim reviewing the role, fans will hopefully get an update on the rest of the original cast.

The Uncanny Counter was a major success for OCN, receiving the network’s highest ratings. Its main cast enthralled fans, and Kim was hopeful of returning for a new season. According to Soompi, Kim explained she was not upset about the K-drama’s finale “because I feel certain that this won’t be the end.”

At the time, OCN did not confirm the Uncanny Counter Season 2, but Kim explained, “However, if it becomes a reality, I think that all of the actors [from Season 1] will probably want to return for it. Because everyone in the cast and crew was really great, as long as we’re able to keep going with this team, I think everyone will want to take part.”

What will ‘The Uncanny Counter’ Season 2 be about?

With Kim Se-jeong looking over the offer to star in The Uncanny Counter Season 2, fans are eager to know where the new installment will kick off. In the finale of the K-drama, the characters are stronger than ever and continue their work. But the K-drama left out an extended ending from the webtoon.

The original webtoon ends on a different note with the reveal and a new villain with the same Counter abilities. Webtoon fans are also well aware that a second installment continued the storyline. It is unclear if The Uncanny Counter Season 2 will follow the webtoon again.

Fans can watch The Uncanny Counter on Netflix.
