Not easy to find season 2 of this series in vostfr, fortunately Netflix is there. I was so happy to find our friends from the good old days! This season takes place 1 year after the events of the first. You can find my article on the first season here. It covers topics such as: social phobia, friendship of course and rape
Set one year after season 1 of “Hello, My Twenties!.” Jin-Myung (Han Ye-Ri) successfully found a job after she returned from China. Ye-Eun (Han Seung-Yeon) took a year off from school due to the aftereffects of her abusive ex-boyfriend. She is now returning to her university. Ji-Won (Park Eun-Bin) has yet to find a boyfriend. Eun-Jae (Ji-Woo) broke up with her first love and she is in emotional pain. The girls have a new housemate Jo Eun (Choi A-Ra) at their sharehouse. She stays in the room previously occupied by Yi-Na (Ryu Hwa-Young).

She stays in the room previously occupied by Yi Na . The five roommates will then encounter the difficulties of youth.
The opening episode – Those little things that annoy.
This is surely the funniest episode of the entire series. Between Yi Na who doesn’t know how to drive and the part in the hotel, I absolutely can’t get over it. I loved the ending. The situations were so well handled and Yi Na’s departure was huge.
In the little things that irritate: there’s the fact of cutting people off. We all find that extremely rude. It happens to me to do it and when I realize it I am so embarrassed afterwards. I often channel myself but hey, in the action sometimes you don’t manage too much on the spot.
We all have little things that annoy us and this episode perfectly captures the frustrations we can feel about them. Besides, I really liked the principle of the interviews where everyone gave their feelings or made comments.
I found the conversation about a “lesbian” possibly living with them very interesting. It is true that in Korean society, it is still quite controversial. We are entitled to answers like: “it doesn’t bother me”, “it makes me uncomfortable”, “it’s like living with a man, isn’t it? and also disapproval of religion (Ye Eun who is Catholic).
Otherwise, I must admit that the credits made me very uncomfortable sometimes (As much as those of American Horror Story). The images changed with each episode so we didn’t really know what to expect and there were quite a few creepy ones!
Eun Jae : I was very surprised not to see the same Eun Jae as the first season. However, I found the actress very cute and fresh. Then, she superbly reproduced the facial expressions specific to the character, so it happened on its own. If not concerning the character itself, I must say that Eun Jae annoyed me a lot during this season. Indeed, this character tries to overcome his shyness but in a way that I absolutely did not like. It’s not because you want to assert yourself that you should no longer put a filter on your mouth. She spends a lot of time daydreaming and fantasizing about something she will never have again. At first it’s funny but in the end it’s just pity actually.
Yun Jin : Like the first season, I have a lot of trouble with this character. I don’t know if it’s because of the character itself or it’s the actress that I don’t like or her storyline that interests me but then not at all! Then, the simple fact that I just can’t identify with her! But as for the first season, I like her side that takes care of others and only thinks of seeing the people around them happy.
Ye Eun : a very nice evolution in her character. The actress is remarkable in her role, there are a lot of emotions in her interpretations. She’s still a daddy’s girl who manages to emancipate herself more and more thanks to her roommates. She says more and more goodbye to what is beautiful and becomes a little more open-minded. I liked his rapprochement with Gwon Ho who is THE geek CHARACTER par excellence.
Ji Won : Ah, my darling ever for ever. Luckily she’s there to level up after Yi Na’s departure. I liked the fact that we are focusing more on this person this season. We learn a lot about the reasons for some of his behavior (including his obsession with sex) and his exuberant side. Then, between us, his style kills me, I’m in love guys, A-MOU-REU-SE. I still love his duet with Im Seong Min so much. Too bad there is still no outcome between them. But I ship them so much!
Jo Eun : A little bit of freshness in the good old days, it brings a breath of fresh air to the series and allows us to move forward in Ji Won’s past. But the fact that the book falls into his hands in a rather mysterious way is paranormal for me or just a coincidence, I find it hard to know. I really liked his couple with Seo Jang Hun who is so cute and it made me think so much of the manga Lovely Complex. I really wanted to watch the anime again.
An Ye Ji : very ambiguous character who plays a lot on her cute side. It is unknown if it is love she feels for Jo Eun or just too possessive because she is still her only friend forever. Anyway, I was too fan of her outfits even if it’s not at my queen’s level and I really liked her protective side with Jo Eun against Seo Jang Hun.
I think I preferred this season to the previous one even if the first was excellent and I can only recommend this drama which is really a big favorite!
You know ? Have you seen the first season? Which season do you prefer?
