Updated : Will There Be A Second Season? My Secret Romance (Season 2)
My Secret Romance is a 2017 Korean romantic comedy television series that debuted on the Korean TV network OCN as the first-ever romantic comedy-drama (known for action and thriller K-dramas). The plot of ‘My Secret Romance’ follows Cha Jin Wook, a chaebol son (a son from an affluent family) who exclusively chases short-term romances, who once spent a night in a resort in Gangwon Do, South Korea, with Lee Yoo Mi, which ended when Lee Yoo Mi left without explanation the next morning. The story begins when the two meet again after three years by happenstance. The escapist romantic features of ‘My Secret Romance’ were well received by viewers, and the series was a hit with foreign audiences, resulting in a demand for ‘My Secret Romance’ Season 2.
‘My Secret Romance’ was co-produced by VOD provider Dramafever, and it was one of their most popular dramas when it first aired. Because it was a Romance drama on OCN, many Korean viewers were unaware that such a series existed, resulting in low viewer ratings throughout transmission. However, word-of-mouth has made the series extremely famous in Korea, and both international and Korean audiences are eagerly awaiting an announcement about Season 2 of ‘My Secret Romance.’
The chemistry between the main characters and how they worked together to tackle the challenges they had with their parents made ‘My Secret Romance’ a hit. The drama was also popular with viewers because it allowed them to escape into a fantasy world while remaining grounded in reality – after all, if a girl can get a job as a dietician and nutritionist despite failing cooking school three times and still manage to keep her job despite burning things and making inedible food, what is fantasy?
Kim Jae Young, a rookie actor, was also cast in the drama ‘My Secret Romance.’ Because there is so much going on in this drama, fans can’t help but want for a second season of ‘My Secret Romance.’ Now, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the ‘My Secret Romance’ Season 2 release date that has surfaced.
My Secret Romance 2 Possible Plot Points
Cha Jin Wook and Lee Yoo Mi’s relationship began as a chance meeting between strangers, and when they meet again, Cha Jin Wook misidentifies Yoo Mi’s much-younger brother as her kid! Cha Jin Wook met Lee Yoo Mi in Gangwon Do, where she was attending her mother’s wedding, and he was ordered to do menial labour by his father “as a method for him to learn about taking responsibility.” Both of them share troubles and pain from their childhoods, as well as their friendship. Lee Yoo Mi is employed as the nutritionist for an unwell Cha Jin Wook by chance, and thus their working romance begins.
The couple had a lot of situations that showed their hot chemistry (like the viral video of the swimming pool scene), and fans are excited to see more of it on Season 2 of ‘My Secret Romance’! Furthermore, the first season ended with Yoo Mi’s mother’s second wedding, where Jin Wook reveals that he has been waiting for a fresh start like this for a long time, and Yoo Mi reciprocates. As a result, die-hard fans are eager to witness how their romance progresses and matures in ‘My Secret Romance Season 2’.
Second Lead Syndrome Causing Hyun Tae To Get A Happy Ending?
Despite the fact that many fans wanted Cha Jin Wook and Lee Yoo Mi to get together, the drama had to have a second male protagonist in the form of Jung Hyun Tae. Many fans of ‘My Secret Romance’ developed the famous second lead syndrome after seeing Jung Hyun Tae, a travel writer and proprietor of a book café, fall in love with Lee Yoo Mi for a long time but never declared his feelings to her. The first season ended with Jung Hyun Tae and Joo Hye Ri travelling together (who had an unrequited crush on Jin Wook). As a result, fans of ‘My Secret Romance’ Season 2 are eager to watch how their love progresses.
Repairing the Relationship of Mother & Daughter
Lee Yoo Mi and her mother, Jo Mi Hee, have another relationship that needs to be repaired on both sides. While Yoo Mi does not understand her mother’s frivolous nature and as a result has developed many misconceptions about female sexuality and the wrongs and rights of intimate relationships, Jo Mi Hee had a selfish streak that showed when she used her daughter’s relationship with a famous chaebol son as an opportunity to appear on a talk show and discuss the private details of their (then) crumbling relationship. For many fans, this synergy may be familiar or completely unfamiliar, and they are eager to watch how it develops in Season 2 of ‘My Secret Romance.’
Will the Main Cast Return In My Secret Romance Season 2?
There will be no Season 2 of ‘My Secret Romance’ if the major characters Sung Hoon, Son Ji Eun, and Nam Gi Ae do not return. Before becoming an actress, Son Ji Eun was a member of the K-pop idol girl group Secret. Her most recent appearance in a television drama was in 2021’s “So I Married An Anti-Fan,” which was directed by the same person who directed Season 1 of “My Secret Romance,” so it’s safe to assume they’re on good terms and she’ll be back. Meanwhile, Sung Hoon has become a household name because to his role as a regular on MBC’s variety show ‘I Live Alone.’ He has also worked as an actor, appearing in ‘Love ft. Marriage & Divorce Season 2’ and ‘From Today We Are’ in 2022.
Kim Jae Young was a beginner actor when he starred in ‘My Secret Romance,’ yet he managed to captivate the hearts of the audience. Lee Jae Young, on the other hand, gained a name for himself as the male protagonist in the JTBC melodrama ‘Reflection of You’ in 2021. As a result, he has become a highly sought-after actor in South Korea, with roles in prestigious up-and-coming K-dramas such as tvN’s ‘Mon-Wed-Fri-Tues-Thurs-Sat’ opposite Park Min Young. As a result, we may expect a more mature Jung Hyun Tae in Season 2 of ‘My Secret Romance.’
Meanwhile, Jeon So Min, who only starred in a few episodes of Season 1 of ‘My Secret Romance,’ had acquired a worldwide following when she joined the cast of the popular variety show SBS’ Running Man. She will star in the JTBC drama ‘Cleaning Up,’ which is a remake of the British television series of the same name, slated to air in 2022. As a result, we can expect the casting directors to invite her to join ‘My Secret Romance’ Season 2 in order to attract new viewers.
My Secret Romance Season 2 Release Date
As of now, no official announcement has been made about the publication of My Secret Romance. Kang Cheol Woo, the director and producer of Season 1 of ‘My Secret Romance,’ released a drama in 2021 called ‘So I Married My Anti-Fan,’ which received excellent reviews and increased his popularity. Fans are continually clamouring for a ‘My Secret Romance’ Season 2 announcement, even going so far as to start online petitions to see more pleasant moments between the two main characters. All of these signs point to a formal announcement of ‘My Secret Romance’ Season 2 production, or so the fans hope! In the meantime, you may watch all of the episodes of Season 1 of ‘My Secret Romance’ on Netflix or Rakuten Viki.
