SBS recently released the official poster for "The Penthouse 2" which will follow up "The Penthouse" which ended on January 5th. "The Penthouse" was a stupendous success for the network, ending with ratings of 28.8%, and a third season is also expected after the second one. The new poster also includes an English subtitle, War In Life, the exact meaning of which is unclear.
The coins at the bottom of the poster, however, more obviously refer to the financial and class issues which dominated the drama's first season. "The Penthouse" made a big cultural impact when it premiered last October, earning praise for its dynamic story while also being noted for its extreme visuals. Second and third seasons were confirmed in late November.
"The Penthouse 2" is expected to follow up on the story of the first season. The big ongoing mystery for viewers, though, is how this will be accomplished as "The Penthouse" ended with the apparent death of one of its central characters. The performer playing that character will return in the second season, along with many of the others.
