Just adding some postings made in the 2008 HL series, before this thread was formed . . .

Hi guys, I just saw Hometown Legends 2009 listed under 'Possible Future Projects' at WITHS2 Fansubwiki but haven't heard anything about it at all. Does anyone know if this is confirmed or not because I really enjoyed the 8 episodes last year and I am really excited at the prospect that there might be a season 2.

HL2009 will apparently follow The Man Who Can't Marry on KBS2.

Yes, you are right.

KBS World has already put it in its schedule, to start on 21 Sept (Eng-subbed).

However, before that, KBS World (from 24 August) will probably be having an encore broadcast of 2008 HomeTown Legends on Week Nights (M-Th) for 2 weeks.

Ji Suk Jin will play the role of a vampire in KBS' Korean Ghost Stories (2009) episode called "Blood Ghost", according to KBS' Entertainment Relay Ep 1281.

on dramawiki, it only has 5 of the 8 episodes listed. i'm not sure if the airing order is correct or not but I heard that Jun Hye Bin is going to be in Gumiho and it's going to be the last episode aired and not the first one.. :huh: i noticed that the several of the casts were in last year's Hometown Legends.. such as Lee Young Eun, Kim Tae Ho, Ahn Suk Hwan, Ahn Jae Mo, etc.. guess they couldn't stay away!! :lol:


another still from Jung Gyu Woon & Jo Yoon Hee's episode titled "The Secret of Bamboo Island"
