Expecting: Age of Youth Season 2

The Belle Epoque girls are back!! They are back sooner than what I expected, but that’s not a problem at all. I’m super happy because I’m finally having an upcoming drama I’m genuinely excited about this year. I’ve been pretty disappointed with k-drama world this year because it is not giving me a thrill of watching or expecting a k-drama like it did last year. Therefore, I’m super, super happy regarding the return of the Belle Epoque housemates.

The show has teased its viewer with several teasers and posters – which, by the way, makes me even more impatient.

There are some changes and addition to the cast of the show. Ji Woo (The Universe’s Star) will replace Park Hye Soo to play Yoo Eun Jae. To be honest, I’m a bit dissatisfied with production team’s decision to replace Park Hye Soo with Ji Woo. I still find it weird to see Ji Woo as Eun Jae in the show’s posters and teasers. Hopefully my dissatisfaction will turn into pleasure once the show started.

Aside from the changes of actress behind a character, there are also some additions to the cast. The Kang Yi Na character, played by Ryu Hwa Young, will no longer exist in the second season of this show. The Belle Epoque buddies will, therefore, welcome the new housemate named Jo Eun (Choi Ara). The teasers, posters, and articles about Age of Youth Season 2 are not telling much information about this new character, except her super tall figure and mysterious look. Oh, and her potential partner.

One of few things I love about Age of Youth is the varied romance experience the characters are having. The new season of the show will still have such element with the addition of three male characters, which, hopefully, will bring pleasant colors to the show.  

The first new male character is Seo Jang Hoon (Kim Min Suk), who will be playing the landlord’s representative and a potential partner of the new girl, Jo Eun. Romance between the tall girl and the short guy? Sounds a bit similar to Lovely Complex, but still interesting.

The second new male character is Heimdal (Ahn Woo Yeon), who will be a failed K-pop idol whose band never got off the ground after debuting five years ago. He will be romance Yoo Jin Myung (Han Ye Ri) character.

The third new male character is Kwon Ho Chang (Onew), who will be playing an engineering student who’s never had a relationship and is clueless about love. He will be paired with Jung Ye Eun (Han Seung Yeon) character. An idol pair!!

Yoon Jong Yeol (Shin Hyun Soo) and Im Sung-Min (Son Seung Won) will remain exist in the second season of the show. In this season, Yoon Jong Yeol will still become a sunbae of Eun Jae, but he’s no longer her boyfriend. Im Sung Min, meanwhile, will still having that “some” relationship with Song Ji Won (Park Eun Bin).

Age of Youth 2 will begin airing on August 25. Till then, I will keep my excitement and hopes up for the most awaiting drama of the year.
