The First Responders Season 2: Ho-gae and Do-jin’s Dangerous Mission begins  

The initial scene of the First Responders Season 2’s first episode had Jin Ho-gae and his partner Pil chasing after a criminal in an effort to apprehend him. They manage to apprehend the offender only after facing a lot of opposition and commotion. He is once more made aware, nevertheless, that he has failed to apprehend the serial arsonist who is to blame for numerous fatalities.

Ho-gae visits the prison to speak with a past arsonist for some insight in order to learn more about the perpetrator. The moment the offender enters the room, the atmosphere instantly turns ominous. The burglar explains to Ho-gae that the arsonist must have already lost something valuable, which is why he took such drastic measures. 

When Ho-gae and Do-jin enter a burning building in the parking lot to save the people inside of it, the scene shifts to the past. But due to a couple errors in judgment, they both wind themselves trapped inside the tiny area. Even so, it takes a lot of work for them both to escape the blazing structure.

Do-jin and Ho-gae are still each conducting their own inquiries. Do-jin learns that the offender used a specialized wrench that is sold in extremely small quantities and can be easily linked to the offender. Ho-gae hypothesizes that the building’s victims were already dead before the fire broke out, and that the person who purchased the medication used to treat them is also responsible for the victims’ deaths.

However, as they begin to get closer after the incident, tensions between Song Seol and Ho-gae start to build. Do-jin, on the other hand, is also in love with Song Seol and takes a box of rings with him in case he wants to pop the question. However, Song Seol appears to be feeling Ho-gae instead, which could lead to a heartbreaking love triangle.

The arsonist keeps on, searching for his next victim. It is demonstrated through a series of incidents how a restaurant’s modest kitchen unexpectedly catches fire and swiftly spreads over the entire establishment. Some of the victims are successfully saved by firefighters, but as Song Seol enters the room to save another person, the ceiling begins to crumble. We cannot wait to see what is coming next in the way of the hereos on Netflix.
