If there’s anything that Santa has taught me over the years (other than a musical mnemonic about single-malt scotches), it’s that Christmas is a time of giving.

Jung Yumi is looking great in the stills for I Need Romance 2012, the sequel to tvN’s hit single-women-in-the-city romantic comedy. The trailer is a mess, but… at least it looks like an entertaining mess? The stills of the happy couple (that’d be with Lee Jin-wook, the soon-to-be-ex long-term boyfriend) are adorable.

Posters are out for I Need Romance 2012, which is the updated title for the second season of tvN’s successful trendy rom-com, which is either because they want to be very exact about the timeline of the seasons, or because they’re hopeful of more.
