The K-drama world is no stranger to exceptional romantic comedies that sweep audiences off their feet, and “My Id is Gangnam Beauty” is no exception. Produced under the expertise of Choi Soo-young and the combined efforts of director Choi Sung-bum and producers Jo Jun-Hyung and Kim Dong-Hyun, the series took the television world by storm. Originally released in 2018, its inaugural season made waves in both critical and commercial circles. With the show’s massive success on platforms like Netflix, the clamor for a Season 2 is understandably loud. But what exactly do we know about its potential return? Let’s dive into the details.
Renewal Status: Will There Be a Season 2?
Currently, the fate of “My Id is Gangnam Beauty” hangs in balance. While the drama, based on a popular Naver webcomic, garnered significant attention, there’s been no word from the officials about a second season. Given that the original story arc seemed to wrap up nicely with the webcomic’s ending, it’s a possibility that the show might remain a one-season wonder.
A Look Back at Season 1
Season 1 introduced us to Kang Mi-rae, a young lady who chooses to undergo plastic surgery, influenced heavily by her struggles with bullying and societal beauty standards. As she enters college with her newfound looks, she’s forced to grapple with her past when her surgical history becomes public knowledge. All the while, a romantic subplot brews, notably with her former classmate, Kyung-Seok, who’s entangled in his own set of complications.
Casting Speculations for Season 2
Although the cast for a potential Season 2 remains undisclosed, should the series return, we can likely anticipate the reprisal of key characters. Im Soo-hyang’s portrayal of Kang Mi-rae was notably impactful, alongside performances by Cha Eun-woo as Do Kyung-seok, Jo Woo-ri as Hyun Soo-ah, and Kwak Dong-yeon as Yeon Woo-young, among others. These actors have undoubtedly embedded their characters into the hearts of fans.
Release Date and Trailer Insights
To the disappointment of many, there’s been no confirmed release date for “My Id is Gangnam Beauty” Season 2, nor is there a trailer. However, considering the positive ratings and substantial fan base, hope remains that the series could see a revival. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for some uplifting news in 2022.
