Despite the increased international exposure that certain recent South Korean dramas have received, there are still several that are regarded as classics and even masterpieces within the K-drama community. You may not have heard of these legendary dramas if you are new to our globe. Don’t worry; I’m going to show you a South Korean drama that has been popular for a long time and is still loved by its audience.
Coffee Prince Season 2
We’re discussing “Coffee Prince,” a series whose title you’ve likely heard even if you haven’t seen it. Coffee Prince, which debuted in 2007, is the most popular and enduring of these. We still look forward to season 2 with the same eager anticipation as we did a decade ago. Some of the data we’ve gathered for this post about Coffee Prince Season 2 actually looks promising. Read on to find out more.
Based on the novel of the same name by Lee Sun-mi, Coffee Prince is a romantic comedy-drama about a tomboyish girl who poses as a guy to acquire a job and the young food world mogul she falls in love with. The drama, directed by Lee Yoon-Jung, was a huge success and a critical and commercial success alike. As a result of the show’s popularity, it has been remade in a number of other languages around the world.
Coffee Prince Season 2 Release Date
The first season of ‘Coffee Prince’ debuted on MBC on July 2, 2007. It ran for 17 episodes, each 60 minutes long, and concluded on August 28, 2007. Throughout its entire run, it broadcast every Monday and Tuesday at 21:55 (KST). After its debut, the series quickly gained international popularity, being shown in markets as diverse as Japan, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, India, the Middle East, and Chile. In fact, it inspired remakes in other countries, including China, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand.
Now, as far as season 2 of this award-winning hit K-drama is concerned, you should know that MBC was already investigating the production of a sequel as early as 2007, shortly after the release of the series finale. But at that time, Gong Yoo was scheduled to enlist in the military. Therefore, the producers were reluctant to proceed with a renewal without all of the original cast members present. Since both Yoon Eun-Hye and Gong Yoo are flourishing professionally at the moment, perhaps the producers would decide to reunite them for another TV outing. Even though the odds are extremely low, season 2 of “Coffee Prince” is still a possibility.
Coffee Prince Storyline
The four young adults in the drama all gather at a cafe and share their hopes and goals for the future. Han-gyeol is a bright young man who despises having to settle into just one career path. He is asked to manage a cafe by his grandmother, despite his aversion to working for a privately held corporation. His grandmother’s persistence paid off, and he reluctantly took on the responsibility of owning a café and began to immerse himself in the specialized coffee industry. A young woman named Eun-chan, who is both intelligent and quirky, teaches him the value of real love.
Eun-chan fools Han-kyul at first because she presents as a boy, and this causes him to question his own sexuality and throws him into turmoil. When Han-kyul finds out that Eun-chan is a girl, he loses it. Eventually, though, they make up and fall hopelessly in love again.
By the conclusion of the show, we see that Eun-chan follows Han-Kyul’s advice and moves to Italy to become a barista. She returns after two years away to show off her newfound barista skills after they’ve managed to keep up their long-distance relationship.
