Would you watch Scarlet Heart: Ryeo season 2?
“If we're not from the same world, I'll find you, my Hae Soo.” Wang So’s last line in Scarlet Heart: Ryeo are HEARTBREAKING. It’s not just Wang So and Hae Soo’s separation that aches. It also aches to think, in a good way, that his line could be suggesting a second season, where Wang So finds Hae Soo in her time. (FYI: DramaFever doesn't know anything about plans for season 2.)
Many are wishing for the second season of Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, noting the ending leaves room for more to be told. For instance, we still don’t know why Hae Soo had teleported to Wang So’s time or why she went back to the present time. Nevertheless, perhaps the tragic ending was unavoidable. “Understandably, the heart of the novel and original C-drama is a tragedy,” Faith White of Silver Petti Coat Review writes.
If Scarlet Heart: Ryeo were to get a season 2 like Bu Bu Jing Xin, a Chinese adaptation of the same novel as Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, the final ending would be fulfilling. In Bu Bu Jing Xin season 2, its versions of Hae Soo and Wang So meet in the present time. They go through a series of struggles but end up falling in love all over again. Albeit its satisfying happy ending, many reviews of Bu Bu Jing Xin season 2 say it didn’t outdo the original drama, which could be of concern for Scarlet Heart: Ryeo.
Yesterday, IU shared a photo of her character Hae Soo receiving a handkerchief, possibly from Wang So. Many hope this scene will be published and lead to season 2. However, the chances for season 2 are very low and here’s why.
Scarlet Heart: Ryeo wasn’t produced to have multiple seasons from the get-go. So the chances of it turning into one is very low, according to sources. Another successful drama Descendants of the Sun is getting a second season, but this is an agreement between the writer and the director without the original cast. Cheese In The Trap is getting a movie remake, but not all of the original cast have confirmed roles.
Epic drama Scarlet Heart: Ryeo came to a closure, but we continue to be consumed by it! If Scarlet Heart: Ryeo season 2 were to come out, would you watch it and why?
