Spot the odd one out in character posters for Age of Youth 2
We’ve got some new character posters of our five Belle Epoque housemates. I honestly can’t wait to have these girls back on my screen, so it’s a good thing Age of Youth 2 is steadily churning out promo material while we wait for the show to air later this month.
It looks like half of our original housemates have remained pretty much unchanged, whereas the other two will show a new side to themselves since the first season. Han Ye-ri, as the eldest unni Jin-myung, gives a brooding look with the accompanying copy, “The woman of steel. Poker-faced as always.” I’m glad to see Ji-won, played by Park Eun-bin, is her same bubbly self a year down the line, though she might not be as happy to find herself still single. Her poster hilariously includes her the nickname from the first season, “the female Shin Dong-yup” (comedian Shin is known for his R-rated gags and jokingly pervy image), and also wonders whether she’ll be able to leave her solo life behind.
Han Seung-yeon will portray a more somber Ye-eun, who is still grappling with the emotional trauma of being kidnapped by her psycho ex in the last season. Her poster hints at a better future waiting for her, though: “The end of the idiot-in-love. The start of a new relationship?” Aw, I have to say I wasn’t a huge fan of her character last year, but I do look forward to watching her heal and learn to trust enough to start a new relationship this season. Youngest housemate Eun-jae, played by Ji-woo, will return also changed: “In the middle of evolving from super timid to the testy one.” Lol, wallflower Eun-jae with a temper? Love it.
Choi Ara, playing the mysterious Jo Eun, stares out as the descriptor reads, “Belle Epoque’s new face. The tall girl with the short black hair.” I find it hilarious that even here, they’ve managed to emphasize the new housemate’s height: The girls’ posters only show their faces at the bottom, but Jo Eun fills her entire poster. I haven’t been able to really get a grasp of her character’s personality from the promos released so far, so it’ll be interesting to see how she’ll fit into the dynamic with the rest of the Belle Epoque girls.
Age of Youth 2 will premiere on August 25 in JTBC’s Friday-Saturday slot.
