Netflix’s “Sweet Home” season 2 has been under discussion and the recent news is worrying fans.
As many already know, “Sweet Home” ending left fans with a huge cliffhanger. The ending also hinted at the possibility of season 2, the cast had already stated in multiple interviews that they’d like to return for season two.
Back in July, reports have come out that “Sweet Home” would be returning with actors Song Kang, Lee Jin Wook, and Lee Si Young for the second season. Back then, Netflix stated that nothing has been confirmed.
On October 6, a report by JTBC News credited multiple drama industry representatives who shared that “Sweet Home” production team plans to film its second season this winter, however, only Lee Si Young and Park Gyu Young will be returning to reprise their roles.
According to the report, the drama will cast other actors to complete its lineup.
Following the report, a source from Netflix told news outlets, “Nothing has been decided yet.”
“Sweet Home” is 10 episodes long and tells the story of residents at an apartment complex who have to deal with an unknown phenomenon of humans turning into monsters.
The first season starred Song Kang, Lee Jin Wook, Lee Si Young, Lee Do Hyun, Park Gyu Young, Go Min Si, and more.
What do you think of this?
My personal thoughts- by Jass K.
WARNING: discussion includes spoilers of “Sweet Home” finale.
My First reaction hearing the news was ‘NOOOOOOOOOOOO.’ If you guys recall, the ending of “Sweet Home” relies on Song Kang and Lee Jin Wook’s characters, thus, it is nearly impossible to think of a way to actually proceed with a second season without explaining what exactly went down between the government staging a trap and Song Kang’s character escaping.
Also, the entire idea of “Sweet Home” relies heavily on Song Kang’s character. He is the base and the reason why some people think they might be able to beat the curse or whatever it is. So to plan a second season without the anchor two members is… not the best of ideas…
Of course, I am not saying this is confirmed because they are only reports thus far, but I am worried now because I recalled something. The reason is Song Kang… The cutie was born in 1994 and his enlistment is coming up. As far as we know, he’s currently filming for his upcoming drama, if they want to film this winter, there is probably no way he can fit them in.
To wait for Song Kang to finish his military enlistment would also be too much because then, almost everyone would have moved on.
With the massive success of “Squid Game,” and people’s reactions to this possible lineup, I hope to god they don’t proceed without the anchor characters and please don’t forget Kim Sung-Cheol because his character had a lot to do with the finale.
I love Lee Si Young and Park Gyu Young characters don’t get me wrong, but it won’t be the same without all of them. I was also hoping Lee Do Hyun would make a return.
Another solution would be a prequel or a staging of some sort of plot-line outside the involvement of Song Kang’s character, but I don’t know if it’ll generate the same hype.
