But feelings take their charge again!
How Did ‘My First First Love’ Season 2 Ended?
After turning 20, Yoon Tae O finally got the chance to live a life. Coming from a family of a busy and always unsatisfied father and a passive-aggressive stepmother, Tae O was excited to move out for college. Along with some restrictions, he finally got his grandfather’s old house to himself, along with the most beautiful and popular girl Se Hyun as his girlfriend. And with that, he kickstarted his adulthood journey. But his dreams of living alone shatter quickly when his friends move into his house because of their own problems and have nowhere else to go. And by the time we reached the break time, Tae O had come to the realization about his feelings for his childhood best friend, Song Yi. But it was too late for him as Song Yi was already dating his best friend, Do Hyun.
And being a mature adult, Tae O decides to do the bare minimum and doesn’t let his feelings interfere with the relationship of Song Yi and Do Hyun. Even he tries to hide his feelings so hard, it doesn’t really happen. And everybody in the house ends up noticing that childhood best friends have been hiding something. It was their feelings and affection for each other. And the affection has always been there, but it was just us who were too blind to see that because of the changed context. The way Tae O has always been there for Song Yi since the start. Let it be the time when he stayed beside her and took her in when she got abandoned by her own mother. Or the time when he came to rescue her from a creepy college senior.
And with time and complicated feelings, Do Hyun started falling out of love. And Tae O’s girlfriend ended up giving him an ultimatum that it’s either her or Song Yi. But Tae O and Song Yi started getting closer. And as we reach the end, the best friends become free from their relationships and finally confesses. Along with the lovers, the friends move on with their lives too. Tae O’s dream girlfriend Ryu Se Hyun breaks up with him as he has feelings for somebody else. But it wasn’t a messy break-up. As she was leaving the country, the former couple decided to stay friends. On the other side, his friendship with Do Hyun was cool too. Wishing his best friend and former girlfriend happiness, Do Hyun went on to move out and follow his dreams.
Tae O went on to confess his love to Song Yi on a shopping trip. As they went out to buy a suit for her interview, he kept on showering her with compliments. As she asked him why is he calling her pretty, he just told her that doesn’t want to waste any more time and confessed his feelings. The next day, Ga Rin left, too, as her father was back in the country. While Hoon finally talks to his mother and has an emotional reunion. While Song Yi, too, makes up with her mother. All the friends meet up after a month, a space created by Ga Rin just like the place they used to live at. She re-made the space that helped her in the hardest times to help others when they needed it!
