So far, there has been no new information on when the new second season of Love Alarm may premiere in 2021, but we are hoping that Netflix may announce it somewhere in early 2021.
What Happened in Season 1?
In the first season of Love Alarm, we saw how a new dating app took over the world and also the daily lives of our main characters Kim Jojo, Lee Hye-Yeong, and Sun-Oh. The dating app became a worldwide phenomenon in the digitized world when it could tell if someone in 10 meters of yours has feelings for you or not, thus ending the traditional form of love. The new app brings a lot of ups and downs between the main characters, with Jojo also sharing a platonic relationship with Sun-Oh only to know that they don’t have any romantic feelings for each other and also, on the other hand, we have Lee Hye Yeong, who also shares genuine feelings for Jojo.
The first season ended with a cliff-hanger where an update goes on the dating app that Jojo discovered, and she soon finds out that Lee Hye-Yeong and Hwang Sun-oh both share genuine feelings for her. The question was left was will she go with Lee Hye-Yeong or the handsome Hwang Sun-oh.
