Sometimes, a second season is really needed. In To my Star’s case, you may have wondered if there was more story to tell after our mains got together at the end of season one. The answer to that is yesssss. All the things I loved about season one were still there; the chemistry, the cinematography, the nuggets of comedy. But in season two we are welcomed to more angst but part of me wonders if they even should have had it.
At the beginning of this, we are treated to a compilation of sweet moments between Seo Joon and Ji Woo. They were living up to their best boyfriend’s status and everything seemed well. Turns out, that not everything you see is what is true. There is a big breakup that serves as the main conflict in this season. Ji Woo did my boy Seo Joon dirty and left him on his birthday and basically went off the grid. Seo Joon starts having trouble at work because he’s preoccupied with finding his now ex and seeing what went wrong. These scenes really made me sympathize with Seo Joon because you saw how happy he was just being with Ji Woo but there was something we were missing obviously.
When Seo Joon eventually finds Ji Woo in his old hometown, the rest of the episodes are a hilarious mix of the small town adjusting to both Seo Joon and Ji Woo and them trying to see what happened. They felt the need to throw in Ji Woo’s ex-girlfriend in the mix and for once, I didn’t get that real love triangle vibes. It was mostly a device to focus on Ji Woo’s past traumas and how they affect him in the present. What I appreciated the most was the increase in skinship and actual attraction between our mains. You could tell there was some real love between them but they just were having a hard time trying to focus on how to be together.
I have to say really liked season two better than one. The drama that was added felt more natural than in the first season and you could tell the actors themselves felt more comfortable with their characters. Again, I’m a sucker for a good kiss scene and we got a few of those. But even the long stares were enough to get the heart pumping. Thank you to the producers for making this a little longer and giving us an extra episode to really fall in love with both of them.
Comfort Score: 9/10
