Age of Youth webtoon connects two seasons for fans
A serialized webtoon called Age of Youth: Things Erased in the Name of Youth, depicting the events that happened during the year off between Age of Youth and Age of Youth 2, is being released as the second season airs. The original was a coming-of-age roommate drama showing how university students from all different backgrounds coped with the various struggles and relationships in their lives.
In the second season, the girls return a year later to their sharehouse Belle Epoque, with many actresses including Han Ye-ri, Han Seung-yeon, and Park Eun-bin reprising their roles. But there have also been a few new additions, including rookie Choi Ara, so the new webtoon is a project to help connect the two seasons, filling in fans on what happened in between.
The webtoon’s main character will be Kang Yi-na (or Kang unni), who was played by Ryu Hwa-young in the first season. She left Belle Epoque in pursuit of her own entrepreneurial dreams so she’s no longer a part of the second season (to the disappointment of many fans), a little bit of which was shown in the first episode of Season 2. But the webtoon will show her journey and relationships with the girls as she finds her own niche. There is one new character introduced in the webtoon as well, named Seung-hyun.
The artist in charge of Age of Youth: Things Erased in the Name of Youth is Soo-jung, who is most famous for Que Sera Sera, which garnered much popularity in China and Southeast Asia. Age of Youth 2 airs on Friday and Saturday on JTBC, while the webtoon is being released through KakaoPages.
