The second part has been titled Light and Shadow. The new season will see a time leap of three years after the events of the first season finale, in which Jang Uk gained the ice stone. The new part will feature him having no mercy as he hunts soul shifters. Uk feels like his existence is a sin and regrets living.
Jang Uk soon runs across Naksu in a different shape, but the two have trouble recognizing one another. Meanwhile, Jin Mu is aware that Naksu will return, and he plans to use the strength of the most powerful soul shifter to agitate Jang Uk.
The conflict between Jang Uk and the crowned prince intensifies as Jin Mu plans a major plot. Additionally, Jang Uk learns that removing the ice stone from his body will kill him.
