I was literally salivating when I heard we were getting a second season of that lovely whacky drama AGE OF YOUTH! Like, talk about dreams coming true! So many things were left hanging at the end with Ye-eun and her newly developed phobia, Yi-na’s new change and most of all, these two’s changing dynamics!
I was so ready for these issues to be addressed, but then I got wind of what is happening in the second season and my first reaction was a reverse nose bleed (©Miyamae Kanako) followed by…
Let’s get the most important thing out of the way. They went and replaced our cute main character actress (well, mainest?) with someone else. And by that I mean REPLACED! Same character name but different actress playing her, like what even! Can you imagine going into season 2 blind, having loved season one, only to find that a different person is playing the exact same main character? MADNESS!
Now take that and add in the fact that arguably the best girl of season one was not returning as one of the main cast but a simple cameo!! Having gone through the trouble of getting her back to the share house at the end letting us know that she wasn’t going anywhere!! Like WTF even?! And yes, I am talking about Yi-na! Do you know what this means you all? No more great moments that pulled in crowds into this drama in the first place! Her’s and Ye-eun’s development was just thrown out the window! She was supposed to help Ye-eun get back to herself seeing as she was more in tune of what Ye-eun was going through!
Damn it all!
But of course things do not end there! No, that would be too good! Striking a harder blow to us of the community, they went and added four, FOUR new male characters, not including the guys from season 1 BTW! Talk about having zero reasons to watch this sequel and many to stay away!
I of course will be checking out that episode in which Yi-na makes her cameo because I know it won’t disappoint!
Oh man, this, after such a wonderful first half of 2017!
For shame JTBC, for shame!
Oh well, thank the Lord Japan is here to heal my wounds and keep me afloat with CODE BLUE 3 which has started off on a strong note too I might add! Speaking of, see you then.

Hey, it has been a while. Have you heard of the live action Futari Monologue? They’ll be live streaming it on abematv.

Thank you for the heads up. No, I did not know about it. But it looks like it is going to be hard getting one’s hands on this!
Hopefully it is popular enough to be televised and thus shared

I guess Hwayoung’s ‘controversy’ affected her coming in the show full time… but but I wanted more Yina and YeEun!!
And seeing a different Eunjae is going to weird…

Wait, what controversy? What happened this time?

I loved this show! I can’t believe they’re recasting it. And I think chentotz is referring to this? This issue occurred 5 years ago, so I don’t know why it’s being brought to the surface now, but it certainly doesn’t bode well for Hwayoung.

That scandal again!
At least now I know who to blame for my dearest Areun for leaving!
And really twins, you had to do this now?! Right when my T-ara were getting back on the top after years of hard work?!!

Have you watched teaser #4 for the show already? By the way, I’m hoping they don’t halt or delay production on this show because apparently, the biggest male lead addition to the cast (SHINEE’s Onew) had to leave the show due to an ongoing sexual harassment case against him. It seems like the odds are stacked against season 2. I’m still looking forward to watching it and willing to give it a shot, though!
