Episode 20 of Moon Lovers has given us enough hopes to expect the second season. It shows Hae Soo travels back to modern time, and after regaining her consciousness, she thinks all of that happened is a dream.

Scarlet Heart Ryeo Season Two Plot

As we know, Scarlet Heart Ryeo is based on the Chinese novel named Bu Bu Jing Xin. There is a high possibility and the upcoming season will be the continuation of the last one. Coming up with a new storyline or new cast will be riskier for the production team. Besides the Korean version, the Chinese novel has various adaptations such as Scarlet Heart and Scarlet Heart 2 (Chinese version), Radio drama Bubu Jingxin, Stage play Bubu Jingxin, and the film Time to Love.

Ep20 featuring Hae Soo and Wang So

Therefore, the next season of the Korean version can be adapted from the Chinese version of Scarlet Heart 2. The Chinese sequel takes place in modern times with the same cast and the same relationships connection. It is more like a modern version of the periodic Scarlet Heart. Therefore, Moon Lovers Season 2 can also happen in modern times with the same cast and a similar web of relationships. Then the plot will show Hae Soo meeting the modern-day prince Wang So and all of his brothers. They all will engage in a war to conquer the heir position of a big company like they did in the historical period for the king seat.

Hae Soo will remember their past life memories, but the other cast will not. Destiny will roll its dice, and the two will fall for each other like their past selves. If it is not, the storyline will follow Wang So traveling to modern times to meet his love of life, Hae Soo. It does sound interesting! In short, the season two plot will either show the whole cast’s modern life or Wang So traveling to modern time. Either way, we all want is to see our favorite couple Lee Ji Eun (IU) and Lee Joon Ki, as Hae Soo and Wang So, on the screen! 

Cast Of Scarlet Heart Ryeo Season 2

The petition for Season Two is not only because of the plot but also the cast. Thus, having new cast members in the second season seems a foreign idea to fans. Of course, we can have some new faces, but changing the entire cast will kill the charm of the kdrama. Therefore, Scarlet Heart Season 2 will cast Lee Joon Gi, Lee Ji Eun (IU), Kang Ha Neul as main leads. The supporting cast members include Kim San Ho, Hong Jong Hyun, Yoon Sun Woo, EXO’s Byun Baek Hyun, Nam Joo Hyuk, Ji Soo, etc.

After all, they are one of the reasons fans are crazy over this drama. Viewers are looking forward to watching the sweet and cold chemistry between Hae Soo and Wang So, gentleman Wang Wook, adorable bickering pair Hae Soo and Wang Eun, and the friendship goal of Wang Jung and Wang Wook!
