The housemates of Belle Epoque pair up with their partners for a dance
This is too adorable. There’s another teaser out for the upcoming second season of JTBC’s Age of Youth, and we get to see all of the housemates of Belle Epoque with their potential suitors in the cutest musical number.
Each of the girls gets their moment in the spotlight: First, there’s Jin-myung, played by Han Ye-ri, called the “woman of steel” but sporting a refreshingly bright smile. It’s so nice to see her looking carefree, and even giving a hair flip, since she had a pretty heavy storyline in the first season. Then there’s Park Eun-bin as Ji-won, cheery and lively as ever, followed by Han Seung-yeon returning as Ye-eun. I’m interested to see just how changed Ye-eun will be, seeing as how we left her in the first season as she was beginning to feel the aftereffects of her crazy boyfriend kidnapping her.
I’m also trying to gauge how I’ll react to the “new Eun-jae,” played by Ji-woo, but this teaser is making me optimistic that I’ll warm up to her. The housemates get their moves on as we see the show’s title and a big “Welcome back.” I echo that sentiment. The boys shimmy their way into the frame with the words “Season 2.” The three new male faces, Ahn Woo-yeon (Circle), Kim Min-seok (Defendant), and Onew (Descended From the Sun), introduce our new Belle Epoque resident Choi Ara, who will play the mysterious Jo-eun, known for being the tall girl.
I’m kind of loving the brief shots of each couple, since it gives us a tiny glimpse of what the dynamics will look like in the actual show. Like Ahn Woo-yeon being super cheerful and Han Ye-ri looking slightly overwhelmed by him, or Ji-woo and Shin Hyun-soo (Ruler—Master of the Mask) being grumpy at each other. The new housemate Jo-eun gets a love interest in Kim Min-seok, and Han Seung-yeon will be romanced by Onew, who I hope is not insane. I’m not sure she could take any more of the crazy.
All in all, it’s a pretty great lineup for the coming-of-age series Age of Youth 2, and I can’t wait for it to start next month on August 25, after Woman of Dignity.
