Sweet Home (Season 2) Review

Updated: Dec 27, 2023


I want to warn you that this will be a bit more of a rant than a review as I was really disappointed by season 2.

Netflix, Sweet Home

Season 2 of "Sweet Home" kicks off right where the first season left us, with Cha Hyun-Soo and Pyeon Sang-Wook engaged in a tense car chase to escape the military. Simultaneously, the remaining survivors from the apartment building find themselves seeking refuge in what appears to be a shelter, only to encounter a fight between the military and a gentle Monster.


The narrative unfolds as the survivors establish a community within the remnants of a stadium, navigating both external monster threats and internal conflicts among themselves.


In Season 2, Cha Hyun-Soo takes a step back from the center stage, appearing for only a few episodes. This limited presence highlights his naivety and seemingly bipolar qualities, as the focus shifts to the military's fight to protect the survivors and Lee Run-Yoo's quest to find her brother.


Season 2 also killed some of my favorite characters from the apartment building, leaving the least likable character, Kang Seung-Wan, alive. This decision was frustrating and dampened my passion for the show, especially considering what happened to Seo Yi-Kyung.

The plot of this season felt incomplete and convoluted, almost like a mediocre setup for Season 3. Despite this, there were some intriguing elements:

  • Lee Run-Yoo's new survivor skills and character development were high points.

  • Seo-Yi-Kyeong's daughter, who can control and create monsters, added a new dimension to the series.

  • Chief Ji's mysterious character, even though I could not stand her, raises curiosity about what she is hiding.

  • Soldier Park Chan-young's personality and interactions with Lee Run-Yoo were enjoyable.

At the end of the day, while there were some enjoyable moments, but the absence of interesting monsters and a compelling storyline for the survivors from the apartment building made this season lesser than great.


Storyline: 1/5

Cinematography: 2/5

Overall Entertainment Value: 2/5 

My rating of this season: 4/10 ⭐⭐⭐⭐


Questions for Next Season:

  1. How did the little girl Monster grow up so quickly in just a year?

  2. Will we see more about neo-humans in the next season?

  3. Will Sergeant Tak In-Hawn control his monster and continue to play a significant role in the upcoming season?

  4. What the heck is that ending? What happened to Lee Eun-Hyeok.



Remembering Kim Su-Yeong and Yoon Ji-Su :(
