The actors of “Love Alarm 2” have provided insight into the new season
Established on a popular webtoon of the same name, “Love Alarm” is a romance drama set in an alternate truth where people find love through an application that alerts users when someone within a 10-meter radius has feelings for them. The first season told the story of Kim Jo Jo (Kim So Hyun), Hwang Sun Oh (Song Kang), and Lee Hye Young (Jung Ga Ram) as they confronted a world in which people can only express their love through the app.
The second season begins four years later when the app has widened its sphere of influence with a new feature that provides a list of “people you will like” and “people who will like you.”
To build anticipation for the upcoming premiere, “Love Alarm 2” published a new video of the actors talking about their characters along with glances from the new season. Kim So Hyun shares, “They were in season one, but the characters have been developed further to show how they changed.” The director adds, “You can expect a more mature romance in the second season.”
Jung Ga Ram shares, “Romance for Hye Young, who’s loyal to Jo Jo, begins to blossom. When we got to hold hands, it gave me butterflies in my stomach.” Kim So Hyun adds, “Jo Jo’s relationship with Hye Young and Sun Oh as well as her confusion. Those were the feelings I worked hard on while playing the role.”
Along with clips of Hwang Sun Oh and Lee Hye Young coming into conflict, Jung Ga Ram explains, “They may be friends, but they’re still wary of each other and grow a little distant.” Song Kang shares, “We had to show that we were friends but also caught in a love triangle. That was the most difficult part of playing the role. But since Ga Ram and I are close, we talk often about these things, so it was easier to portray that on screen. Sun Oh knows more than anyone how Yook Jo (Kim Si Eun) feels, but he keeps making mistakes.”
Jung Ga Ram reveals, “In this season, Jo Jo was someone that I wanted to protect even more.” Kim So Hyun shares, “One could say that Hye Young is earnest. He’s a very mature character who is trusting and patient.” Song Kang reveals that Sun Oh will be completely different from the first season, and the actors ask viewers to anticipate the upcoming season. Jung Ga Ram shares, “We enjoyed filming the show, and we’re excited to be in it.”
“Love Alarm 2” will premiere on March 12 via Netflix.
