The Tall One stares down naked Kim Min-seok in Age of Youth 2 teaser
Ooh, more bits of the upcoming drama Age of Youth 2 have been revealed. The latest teaser is a continuation of the first, and shows what the Belle Epoque sharehouse roommates were so surprised by on their return: their new roommate. This new season will be a mix of old and new characters, creating a different story showing how the growth from last season has lead to changes in the girls’ lives.
Han Ye-ri (Age of Youth) will reprise her role as Yoon Jin-myoung, now a stylish careerwoman still coming to terms with her previous lifestyle as a college student full of hardship and poverty. Han Seung-yeon (Age of Youth) will be a more subdued and fearful Jung Ye-eun, due to her trauma from her abusive boyfriend last season. Park Eun-bin (Father, I’ll Take Care of You) will return as Song Ji-won, the boy-crazy, awkward but lovable single gal.
Then, we have our two new faces: Choi Ara as Jo Eun, the mysterious “Tall One,” and Ji-woo as Yoo Eun-jae (originally played by Park Hye-soo in season one), the maknae who broke up with her sunbae boyfriend played by Shin Hyun-soo (Ruler—Master of the Mask).
The new posters show the four original housemates looking out of house windows at the latest addition to Belle Epoque, Jo Eun, who stands just outside the door. The copy on the first poster says: “Introducing the new housemate.” The teaser begins with surprised and intimidated expressions as the girls have to look waaaaay up to look at Jo Eun, who is much taller than them. She asks whether this is the correct house, and they nod slowly.
Then we see various scenes of the girls interacting with their potential new love interests, ending with Kim Min-seok’s (Defendant) naked appearance, which causes all the girls to scream except for Jo Eun, who stares with a deadpan face. Then, the last bit shows Eun-jae and Ye-eun running past Ji-won in agitation, and Ji-won, despite not knowing what’s going on, immediately joining them with full energy.
After seeing these new promos single her out, I’m really curious about Jo Eun. I wonder what backstory she has, and how that’ll help shape the story of this season of JTBC’s popular coming-of-age cohabitation drama. Friday-Saturday drama Age of Youth 2 will begin on August 25.
