Big Bet Season 2 (2023) Episode 1
For those uninitiated in the world of Big Bet, the Disney+ South Korean drama series follows the character of Cha Moosik, a man who rises to become a casino kingpin in The Philippines but who finds himself stuck in a rather sticky situation when he is accused of a murder he did not commit. Season 2 of the show picks up exactly where Season 1 left off, and watchers of the show are recommended to check out the first season before diving right into Season 2.
Big Bet Season 2 (2023) Episode 1
The opening two episodes draw the audience back into the world of Big Bet in style, with a flashy action sequence in the casino at the end of Episode 1 that is a riot to watch, whilst the various bits of dialogue between the Korean, English and Tagalog speaking characters are compelling and keeps the episode ticking over nicely. It stands as an effective reintroduction into the world o with all the cast putting on superb performances.
Darker moments help to underline the gangster and criminal underworld level stakes that have been a cornerstone of Big Bet since the very beginning, and a particularly hairy moment involving Heo Sungtae's Seo Taeseok in episode two is one of the best examples of good old fashioned revenge to the highest degree. The balance between suspense and dark humour remain as tight in Season 2 as in the pervious season, as is the set and location detail that shows elements of life and culture in The Philippines.
Many elements that made the first season of Big Bet so likeable still remain, but the show's trump card is still the charismatic performance of Choi Minsik as Moosik. Is he the hero of this story? Or the villain? Or simply a good old anti-hero? He plays every moment with such conviction that even in his most mundane moments the character remains fascinating to watch. Actor Son Sukku continues to be a scene stealer, lending much sympathy to his character of the tortured cop Oh Seunghoon, constantly trapped between his own misgivings, his desire to do good though he has very little resources, and the restrictions that being in a foreign land place on him.
Fans of the show will enjoy its return, and for audiences who love the works of Scorsese and many other creators of that ilk, Big Bet might be right down their alley. With Season 1 being only eight episodes long, new watchers can catch up to Season 2 with ease. The show was initially planned as a two season series, so it remains to be seen how the enigmatic Cha Mu-sik's story finally plays out.
Disney+ original series Big Bet starring veteran actor Choi Min-sik is set to return for its second season in February. The first season of the series followed Cha Moo-sik (Choi), who rose to become the king of the casino in the Philippines without money or connections, as he became entangled in a murder case. Hot on his heels is Oh Seung-hoon (Son Suk-ku), who investigates the murders and attempts to pin Moo-sik down.
Having pledged his loyalty to protecting Mi-ho from demons, Ban finds himself becoming weaker in the upcoming episodes. In an effort to save both Ban and the humans of Jeju Island, Mi-ho vows to find out how to awaken the powers within her.
While January gave fans heartwarming K-dramas such as Brain Cooperation, Can We Be Strangers, Payback, Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist (season 2) and Crash Course in Romance, the Korean drama fever is surely getting higher and more diverse in the upcoming months. February also saw a revengeful love saga Call It Love, historical mystery drama Our Blooming Youth, romantic comedy Love To Hate You, and the action-packed thriller Big Bet 2.
