Scarlet Heart: Ryeo has bewitched the world since its premiere in August! We only have five more episodes with the magical drama that resurrected historical figures and presented them in a more creative light. Whether you loved or hated the production's twist on history, you have to admit the story itself is thrilling. It's a shame the incredible 15 hour ride we have taken will come to an end very soon. We all know it can't end this way! I have listed reasons Scarlet Heart: Ryeo needs to give viewers a season 2. 

1. International K-drama fans adore the series! During it's first month on air, the historical gem was viewed one billion times in China. I'm guessing the flower boys and the imminent love story hooked everyone from day one. 

2.  It would be amazing to see Hae Jin/Hae Soo (IU) time travel to another time in history. Would her true love find her no matter what dynasty or century?

3. We all want to see the princes reincarnated in Hae Jin's present day. Would they still be brothers? What type of careers would each one choose? Their are so many questions that need to be answered!

4. Viewers need more Wang Jung (Ji Soo) and Baek Ah (Nam Joo Hyuk) screentime. These guys have a bromance we all envy in real life, but in Scarlet Heart:Ryeo  they didn't have many scenes together. I would love to see more brotherly love between these two. 

5. We are dying to see what Wang Eun (Baekhyun) and his wife Soo Deok (Z Hera) would be like in the 21st Century. Would Soo Deok still be a fighter? If so, she would be highly praised instead of frowned upon like she was in the past.

6. IU needs to have several songs on the soundtrack! Her singing voice is incredible. I honestly don't know why the current soundtrack doesn't feature new or past songs from the beloved songstress. Scarlet Heart: Ryeo is missing out!

Listen to one of her biggest hit singles "Good Day" below:

7. Viewers are anxious to see more of the princes six packs! We got a glimpse at the very beginning of the series, but they are not giving fans that special Descendants of the Sun treatment.

Do you think Scarlet Heart: Ryeo deserves a second season? If so, what storyline would you like to see illustrated in another season?
