Hwayugi, or A Korean Odyssey, is a South Korean drama series created by the Hong Sisters. It’s a contemporary version of Wu Chueng’en’s famous Chinese novel “Journey to the West,” which was published in the 16th century. A few mishaps during the production sparked debates at the time, but no one can doubt the show’s superiority.
With its appealing graphics, fantastic cast, and compelling narrative, the fantasy-romance-based drama provides a lot, but something else caught the viewers’ attention as well. The show’s soundtrack included songs by N’UEST W, Suran, AOA, Bumkey, and other well-known Korean musicians. The program uses magic realism to depict the harshness that exists in the actual world through imagination.
The first season premiered on December 23, 2017, and quickly shattered records for popularity, which only grew by the time it was published on Netflix. Season 1’s ending also left a few questions unanswered, which adds to the elements that might lead to a sequel. To be honest, the likelihood of a sequel is pretty strong, but we can’t say anything about a second season as no official sources have confirmed anything.
