    I’ve watched Kim So Hyun’s previous dramas, so I could rely on this girl to deliver as Kim Jojo. As always, I’m impressed by how talented this young girl is. For her young age, she pulled off such a heavy character laden with emotional baggage from her past. My heart literally went out to Kim Jojo, who was so unlucky in life. When she broke up with Sun Oh, her pain was palpable that I wondered what kind of heartbreak Kim So Hyun went through in real life for her to execute such emotions onscreen.

    Love AlarmAnother thing I loved about Kim Jojo is her outfits. Her transition from a young high school girl to a young woman on the verge of becoming an adult was done subtly but it was very beautiful. The changes were minimal as she traded her school uniform for neutral and earthy colors. Small touches were added like jewelry and a very simple and basic sense of style. But Kim So Hyun was gorgeous in the latter part of the drama.”

    First time posting on here in many years - been mostly a silent reader but I felt compelled to post after marathoning all 8 episodes of Love Alarm. I’m really hoping there will be a Season 2 to tie everything up nicely. There are 2 scenarios that I think will happen: 


    1) Most likely: Jojo who is now more mature and more confident decides to pursue her new relationship with HY. With the launch of Love Alarm 2.0, everyone’s going to want her to download it but all 3 characters will hesitate to download the app itself due to the fear of not knowing whose name will appear on her App. SO will keep dating his famous gf but will fight against his feelings for Jojo the whole season... as will Jojo who realizes that no matter how good HY is to her, her feelings for SO will never go away. She then breaks up with HY and gets back with SO only to realize that she’s really in love with HY. She and SO find closure and accept that their relationship has come to an end.. he’ll go back to his famous gf and promises to be good to her and promises that he’ll ring her alarm one day.. Jojo will meet up with HY.. and proves that he’s the one she’s in love with by... ringing his Alarm. The End.


    2) What I want to happen: Jojo is now dating HY and determined to make their relationship work. She’s happier and more mature now.. SO will keep dating his famous gf but fights with his feelings for Jojo during the whole season. He’ll be jealous of Jojo and HY’s new relationship as Jojo acts differently now, she’s happier.. and that causes him to act out and lash out at her, HY, and his famous gf. He’ll keep trying to make Jojo’s Alarm ring.. but she still isn’t able to get rid of the Shield. As she’s dating HY, she realizes that actually, she never got over SO... and although HY is good to her, it’s only because he gives her stability and allows her to run away from the cruelties of life.. because HY’s only purpose is to make Jojo happy and that’s all she wanted - someone to make her happy. But it isn’t fair to him because she actually doesn’t love him the same way... she breaks up with HY who finally accepts that she’ll never ring his Alarm and lets her go knowing that he had his chance and tried his best... Jojo goes back to SO who’s been a mess the whole season and apologizes to him for being immature back then.. and confesses that actually, she didn’t ring his Alarm because she had a Shield on it.. and even though she’s within 10M of the person she loves, he’ll never know.. with the Shield deactivated now, she turns it on... and finally his Alarm rings.. in fact, it’s always rung because she never stopped loving him. The End. 


    You guys, I have a feeling she’s going to end up with HY because everything that happened at the beginning was just so off.. if HY had rung her Alarm first, she would have ended up with him anyways.. but he was a coward and stayed by her side silently whereas SO faced his feelings head on.. this coming from a guy who’s always been “weak” and “immature.” But his and Jojo’s feelings for each other.. as fleeting as a moment as it was... was real and pure. They were both two broken people who relied heavily on each other.. but also provided support and love for each other.. and I REALLY REALLY just want her and SO to get back with each other because they never stopped loving each other... and it breaks my heart to see that he still rang her Alarm that whole time (4 years later) and yet, she had a Shield that prevented her from ringing his.. this guy needs some LOVE!!! 

    Well thought out scenarios! Bravo! I’m hoping for the second outcome too !

    I hope so .Also ı hope we don't wait 1 year for 2.season .( On social media some viewers said that season 2 will be august 2020 )

    ahhhh that's too long. but it was the same for the kdrama kingdom, their season 2 is coming out a year later too. on the upside maybe there will be a new movie/drama next year that will come out before season 2.

    thanks for sharing your input! Her chemistry with both were wonderful even with her ex- dojo boyfriend. For now I'm leaning more towards sun-oh  since i only watched 3 episodes. But my heart for sure will still break for the loser in the end.


    S2 me too! maybe they will start filming it in the fall after mungbean?

  6. How did everyone like the drama?


    After watching three episodes I can say that I absolutely love so hyun protrayal of jojo. Her acting is so expressive and beautiful. I was really surprised at how melancholic this drama was. I was thinking it was going to be light heart drama with some emotional scenes. It was different in expectations but I loved it. The cinematography is stunning and beautiful.


    I'm thankful that although jojo is a pitiful character, she is also a strong character. I love the scene of her fighting her cousin, she held nothing back. at first i thought she was just going to stand there and take the hit but nope she knocked her to the ground. I was like gooo jojo!!!


    This is my most favorite role of her since let's fight ghost. my fears i had regarding this drama was thankfully just fears and not truth.

  7. We prob shouldn’t worry too much since she still will give us a superb performance even if she gets a subpar script (looking at you ruler...). 


    Yeah ah I agree. Let’s just lower our expectations of the drama as a whole and only look forward to seeing her performance and cross our fingers for a season 2. If not, a different drama soon (I’m too greedy even though Mungbean is around the corner lol). I still want miss granny to happen because I would love to see her play a cranky no nonsense old lady and also I want to see her sing and dance (disappointed they never post her performances at her fan meetings)

  8. I read a comment on dramabean that said her character is unlikeable in love alarm. The poster read the webtoon. It kind of worries me but then again Kim so Hyun has played unlikeable characters in the past and made them winning and loveable despite the characters having deep flaws. She makes you root for even the most unlikeable characters written in paper.

  9. I’m kinda disappointed that there’s no articles about So Hyun taking horse back riding lessons or martial arts courses. It’s seems like every female character in the mung bean drama are terrific in terms of fighting minus her character. I hope they don’t make her character weak like they did in ruler although she did drawn out her sword a few times but was super limited :/

    good investigative work! If they’re filming it end of May/early June, they should most likely be done filming for entire drama by the time it airs unless they film it super slowly. 



    it does look like her from the behind haha


    btw I’m not sure but did so Hyun say that she was singing an original japanese song at her fan meeting??? It’s not a cover but a brand new song??? I hope someone post it online.
