Roommate gears up for a second season with a new cast and name
The variety/reality show Roommate is getting a makeover! With cast members like Park Bom, Song Ga Yeon, Lee So Ra, and Shin Sung Woo having left or soon leaving the house, new cast members will joining, and the show is even getting a new name.
The show's new name will be It's Okay, Roommate, and the producer of the show had this to say about the upcoming changes: "If season 1 was about strangers rooming together, season 2 will focus on their individual lives. We plan to show how people with complexes and/or problems overcome them through their experience on Roommate." The producer also mentioned the new cast will be "older than the previous cast."
Why does this seem so familiar? That name and concept just really, really reminds me of something I've been watching, hmm. Are they serious? Remember when Bom left and they mentioned the show might be getting a new format? Who knew at the time someone on staff was such a huge fan of the K-drama It's Okay, That's Love that they would actually model season 2 of the show after it?

Now this is purely just my opinion of where the new concept came from, but with that description and the fact It's Okay, That's Love'is centered around a group of people who are roommates living together and dealing with "their individual lives" and "complexes and/or problems," how can you not come to that conclusion?
The final episode of season 1 airs on September 14th, and there's no word yet on when season 2 will likely air, but will you be watching? Do you agree the new format sounds like the reality version of It's Okay, That's Love? Comment below!
