The Son of Netflix actor Song Kang, alongside award winning actress Kim So Hyun and director Kim Jin Woo announced on March 8, 2021 through a virtual press conference by worldwide OTT Platform Netflix that “Love Alarm’s” second season will be rolling out this Friday, March 12, 2021.

“Love Alarm’s” first season was about an application that detects the romantic attraction of other users in real time, which pings you a message when the one you like (or the one who likes you) is nearby. The story revolves around Jojo (played by Kim So Hyun), Hye Yeong (played by Jung Ga Ram), and Sun Ho (played by Song Kang).

With the amazing global success the series had received back in its first season made available in 2019, the producers, and cast have agreed to continue—and finish the story this 2021. This time, with a 2.0 version of the application, and a leveled-up version of the already talented cast.

Here’s what we found out at the virtual press conference.

Song Kang

Song Kang expressed his gratefulness after warmly being accepted by the global audience during the first season. He, alongside co-actress Kim So Hyun, is hoping that the support continues to grow during the second and final season. 

Kim So Hyun

Kim So Hyun, a former child actress who grew to be one of the biggest names in the Korean entertainment industry, highlighted that the bold director Kim Jin Woo has poured all his passion and love into the series. Director Kim, on the other hand, said that although he loved the story and series so much, he didn’t need to give much guidance as the amazing cast already had so much within themselves that made the story greater than it already was.

Kim Jin Woo

Although fans may be heartbroken by the tears shed by Song Kang in the trailer, Director Kim says that we should be expecting a very much grown-up version of Seon Ho (Song Kang’s character). He and Song Kang had worked really hard on the development of the character, and they’ve decided that of all people in the story, Seon Ho would be the one who matures the most in the story.

In actress So Hyun’s perspective, the application’s newest function update will be the deciding factor that will lead the story into many more directions, filled with twists and turns in between. Song Kang said that, in a general perspective, the resolutions to the first season’s conflicts is something viewers should be on the look out for.

Upon asking the actors whether they would download the app in real life, the two agree that it’d still be the best to express emotions and feelings in person than through an application. The director, however, just wants to open the world into being less afraid of applications much similar to this.

There’s a lot more to catch from the second season of “Love Alarm,” besides what we’ve heard from the director and leading actors. What exactly? You’ll get to find out this Friday on Netflix.
