According to Joynews24, tvN’s new drama Arthdal ​​Chronicles 2 held its first table read on the 6th with Lee Joon Ki, Shin Se Kyung, Jang Dong Gun, and Kim Ok Vin.

Arthdal Chronicles is a fantasy drama that depicts the fateful stories of heroes who write different legends in the ancient land Arth. Season one, released in 2019, received mixed reviews at first. But the show gained favorable reviews in the latter half, leading to the request for season two.

The show was originally planned as a seasonal drama. Per viewers’ request, the production of season two was confirmed in 2020, but all schedules were indefinitely postponed due to the spread of COVID-19.
