    WILL THERE BE A SECOND SEASON?? It ended too quickly with a lot of hints at future conflicts, but they weren’t played out. Not to mention Sul Chan who hasn’t even confessed yet.

    Did the ending purposely to be like that??? Is there a second season???? I hope there will be since the ending leaves so many questions and unsettle issues…I love the love triangle so much but obviously we all know who’s the main female character wants to be with, hope they have another date and i’m curious on how is it going to be this time when they are already in the relationship. How will Yoon Sul Chan react when there will be another reporter to approach them. So excited to have the second season if there will be…Please do as second season, and the the next, and the next…..Good job guys, I REALLY ENJOY WATCHING this series…Keep up the good work…
