Our favorite alcoholics return for TVING’s Work Later, Drink Now 2
After making us laugh, cry, and worry over their livers, the ladies of TVING’s Work Later, Drink Now are back for a second season with a new poster.
The first season followed a group of three young women dealing with their adulting problems through the power of sisterhood and a couple rounds of drinks. While the show was an absolute hilarious hijinks-fest, what made it special was the undercurrent of female solidarity alongside a refusal to shy away from difficult and sensitive topics. As the season wrapped on an open-ended note, this new season offers the ideal opportunity to deepen character plot lines and tie up loose ends.
The main cast has all returned to reprise their roles as the drinking buddies we know and love. Ahn So-hee — played by Lee Sun-bin (Jirisan) — is the go-for-broke writer with an opposites attract workplace romance with her show’s PD, played by Choi Siwon (Love is for Suckers). Han Ji-yeon — played by Han Sun-hwa (Why Her?) — charmed us as the endearing and cloyingly sweet yoga instructor who in the last season had dealt with some health issues. And of course, Kang Ji-goo — played by Jung Eun-ji (Blind) — is back as our gruff teddy bear YouTuber (who makes origami content so captivating it’s enough to pay rent).
Another confirmed cast member in this upcoming season is Yoon Shi-yoon (It’s Beautiful Now). His character had a short stint in season one as a fellow origami enthusiast that struck up an adorable online friendship with Ji-goo, planting the romantic seeds ready to be harvested in season two.
While I myself have yet to sit down and watch season one in its entirety, everything I’ve seen of it reminds me of Age of Youth in the best ways — and just like I was over the moon back in 2017 when Age of Youth announced their second season, I’m ecstatic at the prospect of another chaotic female-friendship gracing our screens once again.
Headed by the same director and writer from season one — PD Kim Jung-shik (So Not Worth It) and writer Wi So-young — Work Later, Drink Now 2 will premiere later this year on TVING.
