Rugal premiered on OCN in South Korea and Netflix internationally from March 28 to May 17, 2020, and was inspired on Rel. mae’s webtoon of the same title. Rugal follows Kang Gi-beom, an outstanding police officer tasked with bringing down Argos. One of South Korea’s most powerful crime groups. Kang’s wife is assassinated by hitmen hired by Argos in punishment for his attempts, and Kang is disfigured and blamed for the crime.
The NIS later recruits Kang to join a secret task team known as Rugal. Whose members are endowed with biotechnology and so have superhuman powers. Kang sets out to clear his identity and bring those accountable for his wife’s demise to justice after acquiring two artificial eyes to restore and strengthen his vision.
Rugal Season 2 Release Date
On Sunday, May 17th, the 16-part program came to a close with a finale episode that left viewers crying, delighted, thrilled, and scared. Rugal’s comeback for a season 2 is yet to be confirmed, which is regrettable. Rugal as well as other Korean dramas have been extremely successful on Netflix in 2020. Thus there is a good chance that the show could come back. Keep a watch on the performers’ Instagram accounts for updates on season 2. Although Netflix would most probably wait until after the season finale to evaluate fan reaction before certifying season 2.

Rugal Season 2 Story
Gwang-Chul awakens in Argos’ human laboratory and kills two scientists who are about to infuse him with something. We believe he has avoided peril, but the Argos skin murmuring appears. Indicating that he is under Huang Deuk- gu’s control. As Gi-beom and Chairwoman Choi flee the lab, they come face to face with the now-possessed Gwang-Chul. The two battle, and just as it looks that Gi-beom may have to murder Gwang-Chul. He manages to free his comrade from Argos’ grip. He begins to deteriorate gradually because he doesn’t have his existing battery pack. While seeking to transport Dr. Oh to safety, Mi-na is ambushed outside the lab by a squad of Argos’ soldiers. Mi-na is stabbed multiple times after a violent fight, and the scar appears to be incredibly deep.
Fortunately, Tae-Woong arrives to save her and Dr. Oh. He defeats the troops, but one of them pulls the trigger on him. The gunshot appeared to pass through Tae-hip Woong’s and into Mi-na, who was cradled on the floor by him. We believe that Gwang-Chul and Mi-na will both die within seconds of each other in an intense scene of anguish. Both are seen unharmed being loaded into the back seat of a car and driven away for medical attention. Tae-Woong meets Chief Choi about his intentions once Rugal is disbanded, but he is met with two katana-wielding men. While Tae-Woong is successful in the fight, Chief Choi draws out a handgun and points it at Tae-Woong.
He is unable to pull the trigger and embraces his destiny, but Tae-Woong is also unable to kill Chief Choi. We hear a single gunshot just as Tae-Woong walks out the door – Chief Choi has killed himself. At the very same time, Gi-beom and Deuk-gu eventually meet in the Rugal headquarters for their big showdown. Gi-boem is able to punch his hated rival in the neck with a pen after an amazing battle scene. Chairwoman Choi is Argos’ only surviving member. Gi-beom approaches her, and it seemed like the two are close to agreeing on a repayment schedule. Gi-beom, on the other hand, discloses that he has a tape of her admitting to the killing of her late husband, and she is imprisoned.
