The show follows a lady who recalls her previous life through recurring death and rebirth for 600 years, as well as a guy who can neither kill nor be slain and has spent the previous three centuries as a Bulgasal—a mythological creature that feeds on human blood and is condemned with longevity. It is directed by Jang Young-woo, and the script is authored by Kwon So-ra and Seo Jae-won, a husband-and-wife partnership.
‘Bulgasal: Immortal Souls,’ a romantic fantasy romantic drama, rates well on Netflix’s huge content catalog of elevated aspirational K-Dramas. The series is centered on ancient traditions of retribution and circular time, weaves together a complex narrative that spans millennia. Dan Hwal transforms into Bulgasal after the deaths of his wife and child. He sets out to seek the woman who gave him eternity. In the meantime, the naive hero is forced to reflect on his history.
Bulgasal: Immortal Souls Season 2 Release Date
Season 1 of Bulgasal: Immortal Souls premiered on Netflix and tvN on December 18, 2021, with the final episode airing on February 6, 2022. The very first season contains 16 episodes, each lasting an hour or two. The 16 episode opens with the words “endgame” along with its Korean counterpart flashing across the monitor. It puts a stop to the rumors about the follow-up season. Furthermore, whereas the show started off well in its home country, ratings rapidly declined in the following weeks. Additionally, the drama has garnered a worldwide following. We may see the narrative of Dan Hwal and Min Sang-un develop if Netflix tries to cash in on it. The conclusion also leaves viewers hoping for a second season.
The drama was praised for its inventive narrative, compelling character relationships, ambient soundtrack, stunning videography, and impressive results by the core characters. Although the first season comes to a close with a bang, a second season remains possible. Unfortunately, given the show’s erratic ratings and abrupt conclusion, a second season of ‘Bulgasal: Immortal Souls’ is improbable to be produced.

Bulgasal: Immortal Souls Season 2 Story
When Hwal gets a taste of blood anew, the very first season begins to a gory finale. He recalls his background, and we return to the legend of Hwal and Sung-un, the first Bulgasals, who lived thousands of years ago. The other protagonists have been enslaved by Hwal’s spell since the sad occurrence. In the ancient days when Hwal died, he turned human and transferred the misfortune to Ok Eul-tae.
Hwal consumes Ok Eul-tae empty and commits suicide in the current time, protecting the others. Detective Kwon and Min Sang un both perish. Si ho and Do Yun make their way back to Hwal’s house. Min Si-ho discovers the whereabouts of Min Sang-un, who was a potter and artisan in that lifetime, after 50 years. She goes to Hwal’s former residence after getting a weird photograph in the mail.
Meanwhile, Hwal’s reincarnation arrives and attempts to purchase the property. The pattern resumes when Sang-un and Hwal meet paths once more. If there would be a 2nd season, it may focus on Hwal and Sang-life un’s after the first.
