The Witch: Part 1. Subversion Sequel Plot and Cast: What to Expect?

According to a Twitter user, the second part of ‘The Witch: Part 1. Subversion’ is going to be titled ‘The Witch: Part 2. The Collision.’ Have a look:

The tweet also reveals the fact that Ja-yoon would be attempting to find her roots. The first movie ends with Ja-yoon going to Dr. Baek’s sister. There, she discloses her intention of finding a permanent solution for her condition. A fight between her and a mysterious girl with a scar on her face is also teased. This is probably what “collision” refers to in the reported title of the sequel. Additionally, Dr. Baek’s sister can be expected to be the next major antagonist. The reference to Ja-Yoon’s roots could indicate the protagonist attempting to find her biological parents.

When it comes to the cast, Kim Da-mi can be certainly expected to reprise her role as Ja-yoon. Without her, a sequel would not be possible as the character of Ja-yoon is central to the plot. Apart from that, several fresh faces can be expected as well since there are a lot of deaths in the first movie. Choi Woo-shik can possibly return as Nobleman too. In the first movie, Ja-Yoon killing Nobleman is not shown explicitly. Only a bullet is heard while the screen goes blank for a split-second. Hence, that is more open-ended too. It remains to be seen whether Ja-Yoon would return to the village. If she does, Choi Jung-woo, Oh Mi-hee, and Go Min-si can also be expected in the sequel.
