‘Reply 1997’ Second Season to Air in September
Following the roaring success about first generation idols and its fans, tvN announced that the second season of Reply 1997 will take place a few years earlier, in 1994.
On April 16, tvN announced that the second season will begin in September. The synopsis for the drama has yet to be written, but the story will focus around 1994, when the popularity of basketball stars were the equivalent of idol groups.
Though many reports have stated the drama will center on basketball, there is a chance that the sequel will have a different focus, as some are speculating that Seo Taiji and other icons of the early 90s may take prominence.
The new season will still include Reply 1997’s director, Woo Ji Won, and writer Lee Woo Jung.
The drama is currently in the process of casting its actors, and should not be confused with another upcoming tvN drama, Basketball, which will be about basketball during the 1948 London Olympics.
