Actor Cha Eun Woo wants audiences of the series “Island,” in which he stars, to understand that his character Yohan is a special kind of priest, certainly not immune to his own problems.


Despite the star-studded cast of the latest Tving and Amazon Prime series, the reception of the handsome Vatican-bred Korean priest from both domestic and global viewers has been lukewarm. Lead actor Cha is intent on turning that around in the second season with a deeper portrayal of his character Yohan, who questions not only his mission but also that of God.


Surprises are to be expected in Part 2 of the series, to be released later this month, according to Cha, but it remains to be seen whether the series will make a turnaround from its lackluster performance on the streaming charts.


"In the second season, Yohan starts questioning God’s intentions, and his own internal struggles build up," Cha said to the local press on last Tuesday.


"There will be much development in Part 2, with even more action and battles along with my character’s growth.”


Cha plays Yohan, a Vatican priest who returns to his birthplace — Korea — to fight evil forces that dominate the island of Jeju, off the south coast of the peninsula. Yohan meets Van, played by Kim Nam Gil, a half-human, half-demon character, and Won Miho, played by Lee Da Hee.

The original manhwa is a masterpiece, but it is quite an old publication, so the logic and sentiment of the material could be a little off-putting for modern audiences,” said Cha. “But we, the main cast, and the director, all talked to the author of the original series and conversed a lot. I think the end result is that we respected the original manhwa but also brought something new to the story.”


“Island” reached ninth place on  Amazon Prime's worldwide rankings in early January this year, becoming the first Korean content to enter the top 10. But since then, the series has shown humdrum performance, being unable to surpass fellow domestic shows such as Netflix's “The Glory” in terms of viewership numbers and landing around the fourth to fifth place mark on average in 20 countries, according to data from streaming service aggregator FlixPatrol.
