The upcoming Netflix series D.P. Season 2 continues the story of Ahn Joon Ho (Jung Hae In) and Han Ho Yul (Koo Kyo Hwan), the military desertion arrest squad members (DP), as they confront the unchanging realities and injustices.

The newly-unveiled character stills offer a glimpse of the emotions of the characters, including Corporal Joon Ho, and Sergeant Han Ho Yul, as they face the challenges that lie ahead. Additionally, the stills capture Sergeant First Class Park Bum Goo, Captain Im Ji Sup, and Goo Ja Woon and Lieutenant Colonel Seo Eun of the Republic of Korea Army Headquarters, showcasing their emotions influenced by the unfolding events. 

Joon Ho, with clenched fists, engages in a tense standoff; Ho Yul wears an indescribable expression; Bum Goo is surprised at an unknown revelation; and Ji Sup's hardened demeanor hint at his determination to no longer remain passive observer but to bring about change. Whereas Ja Woon stands firm beneath the sign of the "Republic of Korea Army", and Seo Eun confidently briefs standing in front of numerous microphones.  These stills ignite curiosity about their allegiances and the direction in which their involvement will steer the story.

Director Han Jun Hee commented, "The actors have become these characters once again, as if we had just finished shooting Season 1", praising the actors for their immersion in their roles throughout Season 2. Jung Hae In portrayed Joon Ho, who relentlessly questions the unchanging reality and seeks answers. Koo Kyo Hwan conveyed his affection for the character, Ho Yul, who shows different sides of himself depending on the situation. 

Kim Sung Kyun immersed himself in the role of Sergeant First Class Park Bum Goo, a non-commissioned officer who is exhausted by the circumstances but remains focused and decisive for the sake of the soldiers. Son Suk Ku showcased the internal conflict of Im Ji Sup, who protested against the military police chief in the second half of season 1, and his desire to return to his old self. Ji Jin Hee, transformed into Goo Ja Woon and displayed the character's outlook, such as white-bleached hair, and researched to portray the character's intimidating demeanor and duality. Kim Ji Hyun, who played Seo Eun, thoroughly prepared by discussing with the director to understand how a soldier lives and approaches her duties, embodying the character with dedication.

Mark your calendars for the premiere of D.P. Season 2 on July 28 on Netflix.
