When I started the first season of this, it was to get more boxes on my bingo. And I devoured it. However, when it was time to get into season 2, that charm and good feeling that I had was quickly replaced with annoyance. Season 2 picks up basically where season 1 ends, our bad-boy and goodie-two-shoes couple, Kim Yeon Du and Ji Hyeong Ho, are going strong. Almost sickeningly well. But that is expected from this high-school love story. Their friends, Seo Ju Ho and Ryu Sol are playing this will they, won’t they kind of relationship and honestly, I wish they would have spent some more time on them because it made no sense to me why they wouldn’t just be together. But what do they do? Add three new characters and so many love triangles, I felt like I was in a calculus class.
Let’s talk about these new characters. The only one I really liked was Kang Ah Hoon. He had no real purpose to any of the storylines other than being this sort of annoyingly cute younger brother type who was Yeon Du’s upstairs neighbor and had a strange connection to Choi Seung Hyun. Who is Choi Seung Hyun? Our star of two of the new love triangles. I didn’t really mind his character but it just felt weird why he was so cold to everyone but automatically fell in like with Yeon Du. But of course, since he was this baseball star and honestly the cuter of the male leads, Yeon Du’s bestie falls for him as well. Hence, love triangle number two. But it was the antagonist of this season that really made no sense to me. Yun Ah Ra popped up out of nowhere and stuck herself into this friend group. She basically took over the role Ryu Sol had in season 1 but instead of being a bitch from the beginning, she had this fake nice appearance and a weird revenge plot. And of course, because this is a typical not deep web drama, all the “drama” is resolved by episode 16.
I think the reason why I didn’t really jell with this season was the conflict felt contrite and a bit more forced than in season one. And because in season one we already did the love triangle thing, I didn’t think we needed to go for that again so soon. I did like the new characters to an extent and I wonder if they will stay around for season 3 but honestly, I would like us to move on from the Yeon Du/ Hyun Ho couple. They’ve had their time, give someone else a shot to be vomit-inducingly sweet.
