Let’s Eat 2 dishes out two extra servings

Thanks to a solid ratings performance and positive viewer response, cable drama Let’s Eat 2 is getting a two-episode extension, putting its total episode count at 18. The drama has been pulling in respectable ratings numbers for tvN in the 2% range; the most recent episode drew an average rating of 2.3% with a high of 2.6%. There was a time when a tvN show would have expected higher, but the station has had a bumpy past year and must be relieved to have a reliable hit on their hands with Let’s Eat 2.

The extension spurred momentary speculation of a possible Season 3, though a source with tvN quickly clarified that they haven’t discussed that yet, and that they’re focusing on the season at hand. But if they do go that route, it’s probably for the better that they get that talk out early, so that producers are given ample opportunity to write in story possibilities now and pay them off in an organic way. After all, even though I missed the first season, I was a little weirded out by the way the show ended Season 1 with Lee Soo-kyung as the heroine, then launched Season 2 with a new lead in Seo Hyun-jin.

That said, I found Season 2 quite accessible even when diving in blind — simple concept, cute characters, tons of food porn. What’s not to like? Most of all I really enjoy Seo Hyun-jin’s performance in it (after having loved her just as much as the adorably wail-y princess of Three Musketeers); Yoon Doo-joon is great at being the glib charmer, but she makes the show for me.

Plus, the extension notice comes early enough that I don’t feel too worried about the rest of the show taking a dive or getting dragged out painfully. (We can hope.) The show will air Episodes 9 and 10 this week, and now wraps on June 2.

Oh yey. :) I'm waiting for it to end so I can marathon but I'm glad for the show staff that it's doing well.

Wish they could write Atty Doofus from season 1 back into season 3. If they ever do a season 3.

Mary - that man needs a lead role and a spinoff of S1 would be just fine with me.

He was so petty but so funny! He was great in Perservere Gu Hae Ra too and is slaying it in Divorce lawyers in love. I do think its about time he gets a lead role, he certainly has the acting chops!

Nice to hear this. I saw the ratings on it recently and wasn't sure if it was good or bad for a cable channel. The show is cute and funny and the food porn cinematography is absolutely top-notch!

As much as I liked Season 1, I do like season 2 and Seo Hyun Jin is adorable in this also as she was in 3M. Yoon Doo-Joon's character is good, but he is more low key than Season 1 - I guess because of a rough past year and break up? But his being more low key has given her character time to shine through a bit more brightly.

I just watched today's episode raw and really had fun with it - no spoilers from me. Enjoy it for yourselves. :)

Another two servings? Sure!

I'm one of the few in the minority I think that never connected with Soo Kyung in season 1. I like Hyun Jin's character much better and I relate to her more, so I'm happy with season 2. But I hope she sees a little more development soon because she is starting to sound like a broken record last week...

You are not the only one.I couldn't like Soo Kyung as well plus I thought she was more suitable with the silly but cute lawyer that's why the romance in season 1 was a miss for me.
I'm loving season 2 a lot more.I was already a fan of Seo Hyun-jin after Three Musketeers.Her performance in here solidified my love for her even more.She's doing an awesome job with a role which could soon turn into an annoyance on hands of a less talented actress.

I so much agree! I thought she would have been perfect with the lawyer in season 1. I could never get behind the main romance either, it fell really flat for me but I totally thought I was the only one!

I liked Seo Hyun Jin a lot in 3 Musketeers as well. She was charming and vulnerable and spunky. It seems a lot of people don't like her in this drama, but she is carrying the show from my perspective. I relate a lot to get experiences and how she having to grow up. I just hope the writers allow her to get there soon =)

The one thing season 2 needs is more food. Not enough food!

I think matdragon didn't like Soo Kyung character while the two commenters above can't relate with romance between doo jon and her. I really love Soo Kyung she is talented and charming in her role in Let's Eat but I'm in a few who wanted her to be with Mr Lawyer but she is adorable and my fav in season 1.

So did I. I never really saw Soo Kyung and Dae Young as a couple in Let's Eat season 1, and felt she would have been a better fit with the cute lawyer in her office. So the romance part of Season 1 didn't jive with me.

But Soo Ji seems to be a better fit with Dae Young and I can easily buy their romance. Even if they ended up as bickering friends I can still buy the chemistry between them.

The only thing I think Season 2 lacks is food. For a food drama infomercial, they've certainly toned down the food this time around!

After saying I wasn't going to watch it because they effectively killed off the relationships from the first season, I am quite enjoying it. They didn't try to make all the new characters carbon copies of the old ones, which I appreciate.

However, I miss the old theme song so hard. I downloaded it off iTunes and now listen to it on repeat while cooking.

I must be in the minority here. I liked Season 1 better for the food porn. The weight issue is a real drag on enjoying the eating scenes. I always wanted to eat what they were eating and I'm 20+ year vegetarian! I miss goofy attorney like crazy and would love to see him cameo.

I liked Season 1 with the food porn. I was practically drooling and always ended up hungry when watching. But in season 2, the food porn is not so much anymore. Or maybe I 'm immune to it.. LOL
But I like Season 2 better in terms of plot/character development.

I must be in minority that the food part has become boring. I usually ff past it. Since they don't bother adding any dialogue to those scenes, I don't miss much in terms of story.

Marathoned S1 before starting this. It started off cute, but took a nosedive after post the half way mark. (A delayed drunken apology is not an apology, especially after wrongly reporting someone as a molester/murderer). Could never recover from that.

So far enjoying season 2. Seo Hyun Jin carries over the goodwill from 3M

I must be a minority here cos I don't like the female character not the actress. The actress is great in the role but her character in the drama is grating on my nerves as she's constantly demanding Doojoon's attention and her self righteous attitude. I want him back with the original female lead. I prefer season 1 with better food porn. Love the people in the law firm.

No, you aren't the only one. This character acts so entitled and self centered when it comes to Do Joon. And the whole crying and drunk thing in the park like her life was about to end was just so pathetic and cringe. I know it was supposed to be cute or whatever, but it was not at all. Gee, a guy you liked didn't like you back. Meanwhile, I have a friend with chronic health problems who's fighting hard just to live. No sympathy for Soo Ji from me.

I agree. The actress is wonderful, but her char is written as this demanding, selfish, greedy girl who has little to no common sense. She is a Taker, with her old classmate, with the old lady downstairs, w the landlady, and w her co-worker hot guy! In other words, everybody in this drama. She makes me cringe. I'd like to see her show some redeeming quality, but have given up after 7 eps.

I mostly agree about the female lead character in season 2 and as I said above, if it weren't for Seo Hyun Jin, I'd probably find her very annoying too.

That being said, the female lead of season 1 was not a nice character at all...in my opinion of course.I found her constant suspicion towards her neighbors and rejecting all their goodwill extremely annoying.Moreover not only she even reported one of them to the police based on such meager evidence which made it hard to believe that she ever worked in a law farm, she adamantly refused to apologize after knowing she was wrong just because of her pride!
Not to mention the way her attitude changed 360 degree after learning the identity of the male lead, made me question whether she fell for him or for Mr Shiksha.

Agree. Much prefer s1 over s2. S1 had better food porn, Soo Kyung, hilarious side kicks and a mystery arc. S2 female character just doesn't do it for me especially her silly diet of see n smell but not eat. Hard to convince how Doojoon fell for her.

It's ok if you don't like the character for other reasons but please don't call her diet 'silly'.A very close friend of mine went on a diet after suffering a bad break-up and she went from 78kg to 51 just in 6 months.She has stopped the extreme diet now but still is afraid to eat the food she likes because she doesn't want to return to her former self again.Even I myself face this dilemma everyday.I gain weight easily so, even though I love food, I can't enjoy them to my heart's content.

I love both season 1 and season 2. Season 2 's female lead, while occasionally overboard with her reactions, has some great sad-funny scenes that are totally relatable.

I love how GDY is such a decent bloke and friend too. His personality hasn't changed from season 1 and I appreciate that the writing kept him so consistent in character and behaviour.

LE season 2, hwaiting!

I'm really enjoying Season 2, Seo Hyun-jin is adorable and her complicated relationship with food is actually interestingly different from Soo-kyung in Season 1. And she does have great chemistry with Yoon Doo-joon, and I like that we have a male lead who's a thoroughly decent bloke while our female lead is the prickly one.

(speaking of which, I really think 2 seasons is enough, let the guy go and do some other roles too now that he's proved himself and delivered a hit on cable).

I also loved the Three Musketeers shout-out in episode 7, I grinned a little inside for our Crown Princess :)

Baek Soo-ji is so FREAKING LOVEABLE and Seo Hyun-jin is playing her to a tee. I loved SHJ in 3M but her performance in Lets Eat 2 sealed the deal for me and made me a full-on fan. I will be checking out whatever she does from now on.

Yay for the extension! More food and more OTP MOMENTS coming our way! GAWD I LOVE THEM BOTH. I’m such a sucker for friends-turned-lovers stories. Baek Dwae-ji and Shiksa-nim ftw!

I love Lets eat 2 so much !
In the beginning I watched it because Sep Hyun Jin ( I adore her in Three Musketeers ) but now i love all 3 main leads. YDJ is great and kinda hard not to love him. He just perfect. But Kwon Yool also very charming he's awkward and stiff at office but really alive outside. Really one of a kind.
I'm having second male lead syndrome now and this is not good. Because most of them end up being a looser T0T

I'm not feeling this season as much as the first one. Funny since I watched the first season only so that I could watch the second. My favorite actress is Seo Hyunjin so...

She is an amazing actress but I don't even feel half of her potential shining in this show. Same with Three Musketeers. She was absolutely amazing in King's Daughter Subaekhyang... Hoping to see a strong performance from her again soon.

Season 3? Sure count me in but I wish the food scenes would be more... interesting? The scenes were fun in s1 but now it just looks good but gets boring to watch if it gets too many minutes. Or maybe I'm the only one who thinks so...

yay! I love Season 2! But I'm still dying to find out what happened to them (Lee Soo-kyung and Goo Dae-young). I rarely like second installment of anything that I watched but this one is different. I like Kwak Yul's character or rather I like Kwak Yul!

The only problem is when I watch this show I am eating Doritos which usually is delicious but watching them it makes it tasteless...

Hope the subs comes out faster...

Damn. I guess I'll have to give this another try. I loved the first season and the lead couple to a surprising degree. They were actually one of my favorite couples from 2014 so you can imagine me having a very hard time accepting the changes.

I watched the 1st episode of season 2 and, though I enjoyed it, it still felt like there was just something missing. That said, I do love Seo Hyun-jin and I do think that she has good chemistry with Doo-joon. It's more that enjoying this season to its fullest requires me to actually fully accept that it's real and it's still really hard for me to do that. I think because in season 1 we're introduced to Gu Dae-young through Lee Soo-kyung's eyes, so now it's just really hard for me to watch his character on-screen...without her.

That and I wish they would just explain the break-up, instead of purposefully hinting at it and then not giving me closure. Because that makes me feel like the writers are doing that for a reason (like they might not be completely broken up). If they aren't, then I'd rather watch with an understanding of what happened, so I can just enjoy the present story without entertaining useless hopes.

I might have a weird sense of romance because I totally loved the romance in season one. And I never once felt that Soo-kyung showed even a little bit interest in the lawyer so I didn't root for him - but he was an adorkable character, loved him! On the other hand, there were so many nuances, little moments, parallel scenes between GDY and Soo-kyung that I adore, and their relationship was gradually developed, which is something I prefer. I'm still watching these scenes over and over again. Cute, dorky, natural, subtle... So yeah, they are my only OTP from last year. And although Dujun is
my bias in Beast, I started watching Let's Eat because of Lee Soo-kyung. Just her reaction when she saw GDY at her door after their kiss is enough reason for me to love her. And now that I mention that, I have to go and watch that scene again...

Gosh, is there any chance that at the end of the season they'll have Doo Joon back in Seoul with Sae Kyung (hopefully in the extended episodes?). I haven't watched Season 2 yet because I just liked the Doo Joon Sae Kyung pairing so much I couldn't get past the new actress. Does anyone know? Anyone? I know SK is not in Season 2 but still... is there any hope of DJ and SK at all?

Lee Soo-kyung is shooting a new drama right now (she looks stunning btw) but that doesn't mean that she can't appear as cameo in Let's Eat s2. But I wouldn't keep my hopes high. I'll wait and decide if I'll watch s2 after it's finished.
