Netflix announces ‘Love Alarm’ season 2 premiere, unveils first look at lead cast

The long awaited second season of the teen hit romance series Love Alarm is finally premiering on Netflix!

The streaming giant has announced that Love Alarm season 2, a Netflix original series, will be released exclusively on its platform on March 12. The story revolves around a mobile app that alerts users if someone within a 10-meter radius likes them. The second season takes off with the release of a new version of the app, called Love Alarm 2.0, four years after the creation of the original version. It is based on a popular webtoon of the same name written by Chon Kye-young.

Along with the announcement of the premiere, Netflix also released the first stills of lead stars Kim So-hyun (The Tale of Nokdu), who plays Kim Jo-jo, Jung Ga-ram (Mistress), who plays Lee Hye-young, and Song Kang (Sweet Home), who plays Hwang Sun-oh. The unveiled photos capture the love triangle between Jo-jo, Hye-young, and Sun-oh, who have graduated from high school and are now adults but still have unresolved conflicts and issues. With the release of the app’s new version, it launched a new feature that shows a list of people who are likely to develop feelings towards the user in the future. Because of this, Jo-jo, who still hides her feelings, will encounter new problems brought about by the app.

The second season was initially slated to premiere in August of last year but was pushed back to 2021 due to the onslaught of the current pandemic. Love Alarm 2 is helmed by PD Kim Jin-woo of Good Doctor (2013) and Suits (2018), while screenwriter Yoo Bo-ra of Secret (2013) and Rain or Shine (2017–2018) is in charge of the script.

The first season is currently available for streaming on Netflix.

Luna

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
