Does the story need a second season?

There’s definitely room for a second, here’s why.

Ryu Seok could still be a threat. Despite the central district explosion, with Ryu Seok in the center of it and being shot, the mutant blood he extracted from his transfusion attempt with Sa-wol worked, turning his skeleton to metal. This will have given him faster healing and probably cured the disease from which he would have eventually died. Even with a metal skeleton and increased healing, if Ryu Seok has survived, it could take him many months to recover. On top of this, he will now have to work from the shadows if he ever wants to put his plans into action.
