Some of you might have been wondering when and where the new season of Vagabond will come out. Let’s find that out in the rest of this article.
Vagabond Season 2 Release Date
There has been no official announcement as to if the drama series will be continued or not. Season 2 left us on a very high note and craving for more, but it’s been more than 2 years since we heard about it. The good news, though, is that the series has not been cancelled, and knowing that the series has a lot of potential to continue, we have hope that it will come back for another refreshing thriller season. Though the chances of returning might be low as if a Korean series needs to make a comeback, it generally happens within a year of its release, and it has already been more than that for Vagabond. But let’s keep hoping that it will come back.
The first season was aired on South Korean Television local cable on September 20, 2019, and 16 episodes ended on November 23, 2019, with 2 episodes being released every week. Each episode was divided into 3 parts and was longer than an hour. It has an average score of 8.2 out of 10 on IMDb and 8.5 on popular drama sites, MyDramaList, which are good enough for the producers to pick it up for next season and not cancel it altogether.

Vagabond Season 1 Recap
Vagabond begins on a high note with fast-paced action, showing a sniper waiting for someone in a white limousine in the North African desert. Maintaining the suspense of the scene, we quickly transition to our protagonist, Cha Dal Geun, who is a working stuntman trying to make enough money to support his one and only nephew, Cha Hoon, whose parents passed away in an incident when he was a young child. He was travelling to his tournament while competing for Korea’s youth Taekwondo team when his plane crashed in the middle of the flight, killing him. Cha Hoon sent his uncle a video during the flight in which he expressed his gratitude and expressed his joy. He keeps watching the video his nephew sent him while grieving for his loss, and as he does so, he notices a man in the background who he had just seen at the airport, leading him to believe that the incident was not an accident but rather was planned in advance. Dal Geun is now determined to solve this case and bring his nephew to justice, even though he knows the police will not listen or assist him openly.
The following scene reveals that the incident was not an accident, John and Mark were to blame because they wanted a large Korean military contract for a fighter plane, which was most likely going to Dynamic Systems, the company that manufactures the commercial B357, which Dal Geun’s nephew was on. Dal Geun tries telling every deceased family member that the crash was intentional and not an incident, but no one believes him. To prove his point, he asks Go Hae Ri, the female protagonist of the story, to confirm that they saw the man in the video on the aeroplane who survived the blast, but she refuses to do so.
When Dal Geun returns home, he discovers that the video has been deleted from the cloud and that his apartment has been broken into. He goes to the police station with the man who does so and claims to be the terrorist responsible for the plane’s explosion, but no one believes him. He eventually ends up in jail himself. Meanwhile, Hae Ri had already sent the video to one of her colleagues to investigate, and she had concluded that the explosion was a terrorist attack.
When Hae Ri and her office colleagues discover that Dal Geun is telling the truth, one of them attempts to bail out the other but is shot by someone who is later revealed to be a double agent who also attacks Hae Ri in her apartment and is later shot to death by an assassin sent by the lady of John and Mark, who is determined to get the contract and orders for Dal Geun’s murder.
Dal Geun then meets with Edward Park of Dynamic Systems, who is attempting to assist him, and learns that NIS is attempting to close the case of the aeroplane explosion. Dal Geun ends up in a hospital after another attack, where he tells reporters about the terrorist attack. To prove his point and make people believe him, he breaks into the Blue House to meet with the president, where he is given additional protection after the president listens to him.
The whole series afterwards proceeds with some of the same plotlines, with Dal Geun being attacked by an assassin but getting saved every time while wanting to catch the killer along with Hye Ri. We also see some of the romantic development between the two, which they do not admit to for a very long time.
In the end, when our duo is on the verge of success, we learn that the main villain was not Jessica, but Edward Park, who had been “helping” them the entire time, knowing all of their plans and explaining why none of them worked. Dal Geun fakes his death in the final minutes, leaving Hae Ri in an emotional state as she accepts his death. This makes her even more determined to find and punish the perpetrator.
Vagabond Season 2 Story
Though nothing can be confirmed as of this moment, we know that season 2 when it comes out will give us answers to all the questions that were raised at the end of season 1 like what was Hae Ri doing in the desert with some foreign guys where Dal Geun was present to hunt those guys.
We also might see more romantic development between those two, which started in season one and did not go well at the end when Dal Geun faked his death. Whatever it might be, we hope that drama will return soon with a more exciting plot and nail-biting twists.
Vagabond Season 2 Cast
Along with Lee Seung Gi as Cha Dal Geun, the stuntman who is desperate to catch the mastermind who had his hand in the terrorist attack resulting in his nephew’s death, and Bae Suzy as Go Hae Ri, the female worker at NIS who is helping Dal Geun and is equally determined to catch the killer, we have a lot of interesting characters and cast in season 1 who are also expected to appear in season 2.
They include the main antagonist, Edward Park, played by Lee Geung-young, who is the head of Dynamic KP and wants to make a big profit even if it means taking innocent lives, and Jessica Lee, played by Moon Jeong-hee, who is the President-in-charge of John and Mark’s Asian branch.
Other possible cast members include Shin Sung-rok as Gi Tae-ung, Kim Jong-soo as An Ki-dong, Lee Ki-young as Kang Joo-Chul, and Jung Man-Sik as Min Jae-sik.
