A Scarlet Heart Ryeo Sequel

Most of the fans of the K-Drama Scarlet Heart Ryeo request a sequel. The ending of the first season was too hurtful for all the main characters. It remains unclear for the main lead Prince Wang So (King Gwangjong) and Hae Soo. Even in the current world where Hae Soo originally lives, she still remembered the hurtful feelings where she left King Gwangjong alone. 

Scarlet Heart Ryeo is a remake of the Chinese drama Bubu Jingxin. In the Chinese or original version, they made the second season, where the story began in the recent world. It’s not only a few episodes but in a complete model. Scarlet Heart 2 has 39 episodes, which is even more than the original one. The characters have a connection to the first season and are played by the same actors and actresses. 

The fans of the Korean version request for the same. But until now, there is no news regarding the second season. It’s almost four years since the first one. Most of the fans created their own imagination of how the second season might be through fan-made videos which are shared through YouTube. Sometimes it leads other fans to mistake the video for the original. It’s a rare condition of K-Drama to have a second season apart from which already decided. So, we’re not sure if SBS or the writer and director of Scarlet Heart Ryeo have begun creating another season for this drama. But, we’ll see. There is still a percentage of hope until it reaches the 10th anniversary.
