Love Alarm’ was first released in 2019 where the series received tremendous love and support globally. The great success of the drama has welcomed its return with ‘Love Alarm Season 2’, which fans have been anticipating for.

In Season 2, the series depicts the upgraded Love Alarm application—in the world where a mobile app tells you how many people will have a crush on you within a 10-metre radius. The love story of Jojo (Kim So-hyun), Sun-oh (Song Kang) and Hye-yeong (Jung Ga-ram) continues with the upgraded Love Alarm 2.0.

Besides Love Alarm 2.0, the cast have also shared how their characters have upgraded in Season 2. Kim So-hyun, the author of ‘The Ringing World’ in the series, conveyed that Jojo has now grown into an adult and has matured in her relationships and life.

Song Kang, who plays the superstar and Love Alarm Badge Club member Sun-oh, has mentioned viewers will also be able to see a more mature and grown-up Sun-oh after his break-up with Jojo in Season 1.

Although Jung Ga-ram (plays Hye-yeong) was not present during the press conference, Director Kim also praised the actor for his professionalism, “Ga-ram was impressive and he contained his feelings inside while filming on set. Ga-ram is also similar to his character, Hye-yeong.”.  A video of Jung Ga-ram greeting viewers was also being played on the screen, as the actor is seen joyfully waving.

Q: If you would play another role in the drama, who would it be?

Kim So-hyun: I would like to play Sun-oh as his Love Alarm is constantly ringing, I want to experience how is it to be popular too!

Song Kang: I want to play Jojo as there are 2 wonderful men (Sun-oh and Hye-yeong) who are completely in love with her. Even though Sun-oh has a lot of people ringing his Love Alarm, the person he loves might not ring his alarm.

Q: What is the biggest difference of Love Alarm Season1 and Season 2 and what is a particular scene that you would want fans to look out for?

Kim So-hyun: The new function in Love Alarm 2.0 will be a defining factor that will allow that story to have twists and turns.

Song Kang: In Season 1, there were conflicts. The conflicts will overcome in Season 2.

Director Kim: Season 2 is about the excitement and growing from the choices and decisions made.

Q: If Love Alarm 2.0 existed in real life, will you download it or express your feelings on your own?

Kim So-hyun: As you have seen in the trailer, my decision hurt both Sun-oh and Hye-yeong, it was difficult and I would prefer to express my feelings with my own words.

Song Kang: While using Love Alarm 2.0 is more convenient, I think delivering your feelings in your own words would be more truthful instead of the application.

Q: You have played many different characters in your career in the industry. What has been the biggest appeal of ‘Love Alarm’?

Kim So-hyun: There was excitement of a new challenge to portray Jojo as there were emotions of starting university life and becoming an adult in ‘Love Alarm’.

Q: What is the reason why you have been casted in so many webtoon-based series, like ‘Love Alarm’?

Song Kang: I want to work on something that is meaningful and entertaining. Webtoon-based series have been loved by a wide audience already and I think that also connects me to such series. 

The cast and director closed the press conference and each left a message to viewers of  ‘Love Alarm Season 2’.

Kim So-hyun: Thank you for loving ‘Love Alarm’, With Season 2, the chemistry between the casts is stronger and we will present a more exciting show!

Song Kang: Thank you for all the love and support, ‘Love Alarm Season 2’ is also fun and different in some aspects. Hope you will love it!

Director: I hope viewers will feel the energy I channeled from the filming set into the drama.
