Arthdal Chronicles Season 1 Ending Explanied
Arthdal Chronicles season 1 is over, but the story is far from over. After the closing episode and short animation, viewers are left with numerous unanswered questions.
TaGon declared the new country Arthdal’s war with the Ago Tribes (with EunSeom for leader). He wishes to rule the East. Who will fight, how will they start the conflict, and who will win?
Will “the dream of Wahan people” EunSeom ever reconnect with the woman he likes, TanYa, after being separated since the beginning of the drama? They will almost certainly meet, but how? Can they still love each other as much as they did in the past?
Will SaYa agree to their meeting? SaYa desires TanYa and is aware of his twin brother’s love for her. There’s a chance he tried to prevent their reunion.
SaYa eventually realized that he has a twin (or benetbeot) and that he is the one who allegedly murdered SaNung. He also realized that he is TanYa’s true love, EunSeom. That comes as a major surprise to SaYa.
He’ll probably realize that his dreams about TanYa came from EunSeom. He will have to work hard to keep TanYa on his side. Furthermore, we can’t help but speculate about the twins’ meeting.

Cast: Who May Return in Arthdal Chronicles Season 2?
While the major characters of Arthdal Chronicles will remain the same, the starring roles of Eun-seom and Tan-ya have been recast to reflect the 10-year time difference between the two seasons.
In the forthcoming season, Lee Joon-gi (Again My Life) and Shin Se-kyung (Run On) will take over for Song Joong-ki and Kim Ji-won, respectively.
Jang Dong-gun and Kim Ok-vin have also stated that they will resume their roles as Ta-gon, the militaristic leader of the Arthdal Kingdom, and Tae Al-ha, his political counsellor and girlfriend. Shin Joo-hwan will also reprise his role as Dal-sae, Eun-best seom’s friend.
Will Song Joong-ki and Kim Ji-won Return for Season 2 of Arthdal Chronicles?
Given the recasting of their characters, it is unclear whether Song Joong-ki and Kim Ji-won will return to Arthdal Chronicles season 2, but fans can certainly hope that the beloved actors will appear in flashbacks.
The Plot: What Could We Expect From Arthdal Chronicles Season 2?
Studio Dragon previously confirmed that the new season of Arthdal Chronicles will take place roughly a decade after the first season. Ta-gon is still the ruler of the Arthdal Kingdom at the start of season 2, having successfully suppressed attempted rebellions by tribes he slaughtered over the years.
Eun-seom, who formed the Ago Union at the end of Season 1 by reuniting the scattered eastern Ago Clans, is now known as the powerful ruler of East. Season 2 of Arthdal Chronicles will follow the tension and power struggle between the unified Arthdal Kingdom and the Ago Union as they head towards another great war.
Tan-ya will also appear in the new season, years after assuming her role as the Great Spiritual Mother, after secretly casting a spell to entwine her fate with that of her subjects at Tagon’s coronation at the end of season 1.
