Has The Interest Of Love been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The Interest of Love is an absolute disaster-class in drama… but that’s partly what makes it so good! With lots of romance, twists and visual symbolism, JTBC’s drama is certainly a surprise addition to 2023. If you’ve been following this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is The Interest Of Love Season 1 about?

The Interest of Love is the latest romantic K-drama, this time taking place in a bank. The story here predominantly revolves around three main individuals. Sang-su is a hopeless romantic and he finds himself head over heels for his colleague, Su-yeong. She’s busy supporting herself but ends up entangled with Sang-su.

After a date goes horribly wrong, Su-yeong loses interest and finds comfort in Jong-hyeon, a security guard who also works at the bank. Still, that doesn’t stop Sang-su from attempting to win her over.

We have ongoing coverage of The Interest Of Love across the site including recaps for every episode. You can check those out HERE!


Has The Interest Of Love been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, JTBC and Netflix have not renewed The Interest Of Love for season 2. Given the ratings over the weeks, it’ll be interesting to see if they actually do renew this for a follow-up.

The ratings began with a pretty decent 3.1% share nationwide but since then, the show has been steadily decreasing over time, with recent weeks hitting around 2.6%.

Despite the ratings, it’s extremely rare to find Korean dramas renewed for another season. That has changed in recent years but given the sheer wealth of talent in this that are sure to move onto other projects, we predict that The Interest Of Love will not be renewed for a second season.

We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 right now. Given most Korean dramas are reserved to one season, it’s rare to find these renewed. With the rare exception of ongoing Netflix shows (Love ft. Marriage and Divorce, Hospital Playlist etc.) then it seems unlikely that this one will be renewed.

Having said that though, we have seen Taxi Driver and Tale of the Nine Tailed renewed recently, alongside Alchemy of Souls too. Given how steady the ratings are for this series, could we see this one buck the trend? Right now it seems unlikely.

There is always the possibility that the actors return for a follow-up for a sequel or a spin-off featuring the same characters but considering all of this, we believe this will not be renewed.

We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.

  1. I would definitely like to see a season 2, I am a little disappointed with some of the cliché happenings(the walk in a room just as the other person is leaving). The lead actress never explains herself. She was supposed to call when she returned to Seoul. Four years and nothing !!! She’s so selfish. Please bring this one back to close up some loose ends.

  2. I was so disappointed of the ending I was expecting for them to end up together since he suffer so much and love her he fallow her everywhere his love was unconditionally and never find out the truth that she never slept with that guy I was really sad that I dont t want to see a serie like this anymore unless you bring another season with a happy ending !

  3. very upsetting that this kdrama hasn’t been renewed (as of right now) , i hate this trend of kdramas not having a second season . really makes me rethink about the genre as a whole . RENEW PLEASE !

  4. I thought I’m just the one who is not satisfied with the ending of this kdrama when I saw and read the comments omg how I wish and dream about the couple will get married…pls🙏🙏

  5. OMG!!!!!Please, let their be a 2nd Season. I Loved, LOVED 😍 ❤️ this CAST!! Beautiful! BEAUTIFUL!!! Please let the BEAUTIFUL Couple have a Happy Lovely Life, Love, Marriage, babies 👶 ❤️ Please 2nd Season!! Just a really great Love and navigating Life ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  6. Si vorrei tanto una seconda stagione drama complesso e attori bravissimi e per uscire un po dai canoni coreani di non rinnovare quasi mai in una seconda stagione sono speranzosa in un rinnovo…..incrocio le dita

  7. Disappointing. If it’s not renewed, the ending was horrible. If K-dramas only have one season, have some closure to the ending. Who wants to watch dramas with a beginning, a middle & no ending. I may have to reconsider K-dramas. I’ve watched several K-dramas only to never finish. Maddening. Finish the stories or lose audiences

  8. Hey, I would love to say this…why do we think there’s a drop in the movie rating?, well it’s because the crowd wants season two, a perfection of your perfect work you’ve started (to whom it may concern)… please we plead for season two.

  9. There should absolutely be a season 2 with exactly the same cast, it was an excellent series and it would be great to see the story through to the very end ….come on Netflix, get your act together !!

  10. Je tiens absolument a voir la saison 2 de la série THE INTEREST OF LOVE que j’ai beaucoup appréciée. Je veux connaître la suite du destin de ce couple qui
    s ‘aime mais qui n’arrive pas à se le dire. Je ne veux m’as rester sur ma faim.

    Oui oui oui à la SAISON 2 RAPIDEMENT SVP

  11. Gostei da serie mas fiquei sem entender … afinal , falaram das possibilidades nao aproveitadas o que na verdade mostrou os arrependimentos de posturas e decisoes tomadas no passado e, que na verdade , um nao esqueceu do outro , que se gostavam de verdade e sofreram com isso ! Mas terminou sem definicao … segunda temporada para contar as historias doa personagens , nao so doa principais !! Ou, pelo menos, mais 1 episodio fechando as historias …..

  12. The ending of seson 2 is open. It is up to viewers to understand how is going on after the end of the last chapter.
    We should ask ourselves how it should end.

  13. I’d love a 2nd season.
    The ending was unclear. Give us the satisfaction of seeing this love realized!
    A follow up is fitting.

  14. This K drama was refreshing as it explored different perspectives/emotions that true love brings. It caused me to deeply reflect on my own experiences and the scene at the close of episode 16 when what-ifs were explored was particularly good and of course particularly frustrating to not know if ‘future happiness’ awaits. Please bring back for a Season 2!

  15. I was too nervous and anxious to watch the finalé episodes 15 & 16, finally found the courage and watched tonight. Sang-Su forgot absolute nothing while Su-Jeong reserved her thoughts and emotions…. the ending confirmed my anxiety and left me sad, to say the least. A Season 2 is fitting… I do hope!

  16. There’s so much potential in all these characters and a season 2 is definitely needed. Their future happiness is what the fans seek. I believe the cast is awesome together! I hope the writers will tie up all the loose endings.

    I have enjoyed the show, but was disappointed with how season 1 ended, so I’m hoping to see a season 2. Great chemistry!

  17. I really would like to see the ending of the story because I was very interesting it because they Came a long way to get where they were I would like to see them getting married and being happy See what you can do to get a second season.

  18. I love the twists and turns. The surprises play into the general punch of season 1. A second is a must. But I fear the obsession to bring down to a crawl pure desire for Happiness …

    Well, it is well-craft fiction… I hope the plot Will Land on thé right side..

  19. I thought perhaps the last episode would be the two main characters eventually getting married but there was no real ending to this drama.

  20. Can we please have one more episode atleast showing the two main leads whether they ended up together or not.It is so confusing don’t know whether they ended up with eachother or not.I thought perhaps the last episode would be the two main characters eventually getting married but there was no real ending to this drama.

  21. What were you thinking??? I loved the actors but why did you have us so consistently frustrated one episode after another, just hoping the next episode would let us feel some relief. I kept staying with it but a new season had better let me out of this depression! Did I waste hours of my life? I wanted the lead male to have his love and sacrifices for this woman be rewarded. I so longed to breathe again and have the insanity stopped.

  22. The audience was left hanging.. I think the majority of viewers want the main characters to end up 100% surely ended up in a beautiful relationship… Together forever & after.. 🫰🫰🫰

  23. I would absolutely love to see a second season on the interest of love. The characters are very believable. They go very well together, and I want to see them get together. If they want to do a season two and they don’t want the two main characters to get together, then no don’t bother. I’m a sucker for a happy ending.

  24. I enjoyed it but even if it’s done between each of the charters at least allow all of them to have move forward without all the heartbreak still. Maybe just one more episode (17)

  25. Confused. Does a Korean women really take it to heart. If a man has a moment of pause . Does she let her heart suffer over something so trivial.

  26. I was interested in this drama but will not watch any more of the slow topic. Always going in circles on the same topic. Waste of time.

  27. Are you kidding? No Season 2 Hang Su and Su Yeong need to be together and eventually marry. How can you leave the fans and devoted Kdrama watchers hanging? That hurts my heart.

  28. Begging for Season 2 to see Sang-su and Su-yeong get married and finally have their happy life together!!!

  29. Please make a season 2 ! I’m watching this drama from the begining till the end. But the ending ?? Haahhaahh so saddd !! Please make season 2 .

  30. There was no ending; horrible why to end 16 episodes you have done that to often soon we will not watch your shows

  31. I became very invested in the characters and their relationships. The ending is a MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT. It’s HORRIBLE! In this current world where fear and loathing take center stage more and more every day, no one should be asked to invest their time and give their hearts following these endearing characters and their story only to be dumped in an abyss of depression. This show went from a lovely much-needed vehicle of escape and entertainment to a sorrowful BLACK HOLE. This world needs more love…more happy endings. Shame on the writers. Shame on Netflix! If there is no Season 2 to show that people can grow, learn, and maybe even earn a second chance, then this ending is even worse..if that’s possible!

  32. I need a season 2 PLEASE. THIS did not end well after 4 years too much was left unsaid. Please give a season 2 to finish this love story.

  33. i really love this drama and im a little bit disappoint on the last episode i dont know if they continue there relationship or they partways plsss netflix i/we want season 2……..

  34. Love the story line and hopes it is approved for a second season with promotions at the bank along with love and marriage

  35. I love the actors i believe the slow movement has caused part of the downfall of ratings.
    We need more meat with our ribs!!

  36. I enjoyed this movie thoroughly. it was definitely full of twists and turns; Situations that were unexpected. I really hope that they will renew another season for The Interest of Love. Hopefully they are able to recast the same actors. They are really fine actors.

  37. Disappointing. If it’s not renewed, the ending was horrible. If K-dramas only have one season, have some closure to the ending. Who wants to watch dramas with a beginning, a middle & no ending. I may have to reconsider K-dramas. I’ve watched several K-dramas only to never finish. Maddening. Finish the stories or lose audiences.
