The Penthouse was one of the biggest dramas of last year. A makjang style (long format K-drama); it had viewers hooked with its intense and over the top drama. Set in the posh Hera Palace, a luxury apartment in Seoul, it follows the story of the uber-rich Korean families residing there and the fierce rivalry for power, social status and wealth amongst them. It exposes the diabolical cunning and rotten conscience of the rich, as they battle it out to reach the top of the Hera Palace. It stars Lee Ji Ah, Kim So Yeon, Eugene, Uhm Ki Joon, Shim Eun-kyung, Park Eun Seok, Bong Tae Gyu, Yoon Jong Hoon, Yoon Joo Hee and Kim Youngdae in pivotal roles.

SBS dropped a video of the behind-the-scenes of the table read for The Penthouse Season 2, which is set to premiere on February 19. Lee Ji Ah, Kim So Yeon, Eugene, Uhm Ki Joon, Shim Eun-kyung, Park Eun Seok, Bong Tae Gyu, Yoon Jong Hoon and Yoon Joo Hee greeted each other warmly after a mini-break post season 1. The talented and professional actors got into their characters immediately. SPOILERS ALERT Season 1 ended with Oh Yoon Hee being confronted by Logan Lee for the twin murders of Shim Su-Ryeon and Min Seol A and Joo Dante and Cheon Seojin celebrating their success. Season 2 promises to be bloodier and murkier than ever. At the heart of the revenge drama is the ferocious rivalry between Cheon Seo Jin (Kim So Yeon) and Oh Yoon Hee (Eugene).

According to a translation via Soompi, the talented female actors shared their thoughts on reprising their popular characters. Eugene commented, “After it was delayed for so long, we finally held the script reading for season two. It was really fun to get together for the first time in a long while to read the script. You’re probably curious about the script, right? It’s interesting. You might be mentally and physically exhausted due to COVID-19 but hang in there. We’ll work with the situation and work hard to carry out filming cautiously. Please look forward to The Penthouse and give us your love.” Kim So Yeon also added “We finally held the script reading for season two today, and I was really happy to see everyone after such a long time. I want to hurry and show you the good energy from today’s reading. I’ll work hard on filming, so please look forward to it.”
