Will There Be A My Name Season 2?
No matter how much we loved the action thriller, unfortunately, we won’t be getting a My Name Season 2 anytime soon. Director Kim Jin Min and screenwriter Kim Ba Da did an amazing job together and wrapped up the story within the first season of My Name. The main purpose of the leading lady Yoon Ji Woo was to find out who her father’s killer was and kill the killer. In the end, she was able to find the killer, who was very close to her all this time. She took her revenge in the same way she planned it to be.
Along with her revenge, she also found some other things. Before she could hate her father for being a gang member, she got to know that her father was actually an undercover police officer. Fulfilling her father’s mission of infiltrating and ending the Dongcheon gang, she went on to infiltrate the gang as well as killed Mujin, i.e., the leader of the drug gang. So, everything we need to know in the story is eventually wrapped up, leaving no plotholes for the creators to work on for My Name Season 2.
What Happened In My Name Season 1?
My Name started off with Yoon Ji Woo getting bullied because of being a thug’s daughter on her birthday. As if the day couldn’t get any worse, she ends up losing her father in front of her. Determined to take revenge, she goes out looking and comes across Choi Moo Jin. Telling her that he was a close friend of her father, Moo Jin takes her into the gang. He helps her go undercover and trains her among his men. He also tells her that a policeman killed his father and motivates her to join the police force to take her revenge.
Following a time skip, we see Ji Woo has now become Oh Hye Jin and is an officer now. She goes on to become a new member of the narcotics team. Leading the double life of an officer and Mu-jin’s informant, the revenge stays intact in Ji Woo’s mind until the last moment. During an investigation on a drug case, she goes through a bunch of events that include getting attacked by an insecure and jealous former gang member. And her fellow officer gets to know about her real identity. But it also leads her to the truth about her father and Mu Jin.
While she got her revenge, she also became the monster, the real villain wanted her to become.
