Has Twenty Five Twenty One been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Twenty Five Twenty One combines the best parts of Racket Boys, Reply 1988 and feel-good romcoms to deliver one of 2022’s best shows.

This 16 episode k-drama has been a real treat over the weeks but now that the series has nearly ended, you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled.

What is Twenty Five Twenty One Season 1 about?

Twenty Five, Twenty One is a classic K-drama romance between two very different souls in the late 90’s, Hee-Do and Yi-Jin. Hee-Do is a member of her high school fencing team but thanks to the financial crisis, she’s forced to switch schools, becoming a member of the sabre fencing national team.

Meanwhile, Yi-Jin’s father goes bankrupt, changing Yi-Jin’s life forever and forcing him to eke out a living. After experiencing the upper-echelons of society and all the benefits that go with that, it’s tough for him.

As time goes on, these two find solace in one another, allowing their romance to blossom.

We have extensive coverage on Twenty Five Twenty One across the site, including ongoing recaps for all 16 episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE!

Has Twenty Five Twenty One been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, tvN has not renewed Twenty Five Twenty One for season 2. Given the respectable 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 respectable 6.3% nationwide and has been growing steadily, increasing to highs of 10.9% during episode 8. Given this is a weekend k drama up against stiff competition, that’s very impressive.

Based on this there is a possibility that Twenty Five Twenty One may be renewed. However, given most k-dramas wrap up their stories in a single season – we predict that Twenty Five Twenty One will not be renewed.

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

What we know about season 2 so far:

Most Korean dramas are reserved to one season and 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.

However, there is always the possibility that the actors return for a follow-up or even a spin-off ala. the Reply series. Given this show has similar vibes, it’s not outside the realm of possibility. We’ll have to wait and see if this one’s greenlit or not.

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

  1. I was so disappointed in the finale. Please do not let this be the ending.
    Season 2 is a must for all your fans!😊

  2. Seaon 2 pleaassseee… You left us hanging in season 1 with so much questions unanswered. Hoping for another season ❤️


  4. Absolutely!!! It would be a grand delight if Twenty Five Twenty One is renewed. They are superb actors. If not renewed, I would love to see them in another series.
    KUDOS to the actors, writers , producers and camera crews…great cinematography!!!

  5. There has to be season #2. This was an amazing well-written drama. I loved it. It felt like a full meal instead of just dessert.
    There are countless ways that the second series could be framed. As much as the fans would love to see our broken couple find each other it may not be. Just do it Studio Dragon! Make it happen. You are the best.

  6. I will go crazy if there is no season 2, 21 and 25 has become my favorite kdrama. I wish it would work between heedo and yijin. hope to find it in season 2

  7. I just watched this, and hoping for its season 2, because the ending made me confused. Otherwise, I am very much amazed by the story, it made me laugh and cry in every episode.

  8. Story was really amazing ,while watching last episode I can’t stop my tears , but as per me ending has to show Clearly.

  9. I’m not gonna watch another kdrama not until I saw Hee do and Yijin ends up together, never getting over pls season 2 with the same cast! I’m sobbing it’s been 5 days and it feels so real like I was there with them aaaaa 😭😭😭

  10. I loved this drama. I believe it’s the best k-drama I’ve watched this new year thus far. But there are still unanswered questions. Like everyone says I would really like a season 2. I believe k-dramas to be about happy endings. This k-drama I watched in three days. I speak English and yes I read the subtitles to all my k-dramas. Please create season 2 and give us the happy ending!!!!!!!💛🍀🤗

  11. I would love to watch season 2.
    And I wish that in season two, Back Yi Jin & Na Hee Do ends up together.
    The daughter actually belongs to both of them.
    Since there is a change of actress due to growing age, the story line can shows back on how they patch up, got married and gave birth to this daughter and ends with both of them growing old together. (The trust, the love & the faith that they have for each other)

    The story lines can also include how their daughter follows the footsteps of her mum & with the encouragement of the parents, she is able to succeed in her dream.

  12. At the end of the last episode, you need to fast forward the credits. It shows Yin-jin on his old computer and his friend helping him with his password. What he types says it all. There HAS to be a second season!!!! It was a cliffhanger.

  13. Yes those two need to get married.. Seems like she got divorced to whom ever she married..

  14. I chose not to watch the season finale because I felt like one episode wouldn’t answer all the questions I have. I really hope there will be a season two so everything can be explain.

  15. For me, its Very Questionable, Un Explainable&Un Satifyable Finale. I Hate It!!!!…

    Yes! I Recommend A Season 2 for this. I Think Producer, Script Writter&Director made this finale because i know in reality Baek Yi Jin Has A Covid19 while filming….

    As A Watcher, I Suggest for now Since he still have a covid19 he should rest&be well soon.

    The time he will be healed from this pandemic sickness, they can go filming for Season2 pls. I Hope as a fans, They should be fair in making the plot genres sure, before putting it in site… their plot has no “friendship” in it, The main plot they put on 1st hand is on Comedy&Romance And they are so late in changit it to Sports,Friendship&Coming Of Age…

    Why, Season2? Bcoz the finale is so questionable, I Hope they still remember music kdramas way back 2010-2015 done it for S2, like Dream High. “There Still A Chance”

    And Pls. Season 2 It’s on Kim Min Chae’s Story now making a Diary.
    Beyond the story, i hope also that Baek Yi Jin w/Definately show up.
    I Suggest Kim Min Chae’s Father is definately Baek Yi Jim, but since he’s a busy reporter they did not register their marriage that’s why Na Hee Do Registered The family name to either Her Or Baek Yi Jin relatives. And I Hope in Season2 they will definately registered it to court/west there marriage in order for her daughter to change her family name to Baek, in order for her to be Baek Min Chae, the daughter of Baek Yi Jin.

    I Hope As A Fan, You give us also a Fair Conclusion&SATISYABLE Open Coming Soon Season2 bcoz we watch the drama. We Should be FAIR….

  16. Broo I need a season twooo I have so many questions that haven’t been answered😭😭 and if Min-chae isn’t Yijin daughter I’m going to cry

  17. There are many questions running ppl are making fake theories we won’t request fa SO 2 we demand fa SO 2

  18. Either they give us a second season with the same cast otherwise I’m stabbing and killing them for sure.😭😭😡….Everyone pllssss request them for a second season..

  19. Hear me out!
    What If the second season revolves around YiJins years and his point of view from when he left to New York? What if Hee-Doos diary motivated him to start writing In diaries as a way to help him cope with missing Hee-Doo/ being away for so long and then he continues them after coming back in 2009 to the present day 2021? I think that would really help answer the unanswered questions we ALL HAVE and are dying to know 😭😭 mainly because season one ended us showing what happened in 2009 and fast forwarded to 2021 sooo if we could just get the rest of the timeline we would all be happy 😭 this show took a toll on my emotional health

  20. Grant our wish to have a season 2, please? There are still questions that left unanswered. We badly need season 2!! :((

  21. We need closer, what happened to him, who did she got merry, are there happy? Please we need something 🥺😭😭

  22. So many unanswered questions n doubts abt the en
    ding..is keeping me hanging on the wall.season 2 please

  23. I don’t understand it. There was a scene where Hee-do said that to cancel an engagement is easier than a divorce. Did she get married to the father of Min-Chae and got divorced? If he was the one who returned the diary, why sent it if they are still married? Why not just give it Hee-do. There is also that episode where Min-Chae received a ballet dress from her Dad and asking why he does not know yet that she stopped ballet and Hee-do did not give an answer to that question. Min-chae did not even mention her Dad in the story.

    The last scene where they said their last farewell before Yi-Jin went to New York shows the possibility that they eventually got back together. Both meant the world to each other in that farewell.

    The show just left us with clues and no definitive ending. It makes us wonder what was the show really about. There are questions that needed to be answered. Who was the husband of Hee-do and the father of Min-Chae?

    In summary, the show was shallow. Only 4 characters have happy endings. Hee-do and Yi-jin did not have a happy ending. So why is the story line focused on them? Really, I don’t see the point of their love for each other.

    There’s got to be a second season for the show. We need a circle to wrap up the story. the 1st season left a big gap in the circle that needs to be closed.

  24. Please 🙏🥺 don’t end it just like that we need answers. And defenetlly will be excited to see season 2.

  25. I hope they renew! This story is so beautiful and strong. A second season would be easy as they can continue the story with how Hee Do met her husband and then reunite with Yi Jin. All the while, Hee Do’s daughter can continue with ballet and write her own story, as she said. I’d be so sad if the story ended here because it’s so good that I don’t want to let go yet.

  26. Most wanted thing at this moment right now.would love to see season 2.it’s quite unclear ending for me.so,please please please renew the second season.

  27. I want season 2 to know who is the father of minchae, will they will meet again and end up together, or is she is really married there are so many questions left unanswered.

  28. I would love to see season 2 for me to be able to answer those questions left in me like who gonna receive the email Yi-Jin sent when he was recovering for his email in the last part. If who’s the father of Hee Do’s daughter. If they gonna meet in the future and so forth.

  29. hoping for the season 2 the ending was not clear to me it breaks my heart so badly.

  30. Wondering who’s the father of He Doo’s daughter, definitely excited for Season 2!

  31. I’d like to have a season 2 of 2521, because there’s a lot of questions running in my head. Like who’s the Father of Kim Minchae and I’d like to see the older Baek Yi Jin and Na Hee-do meet.

  32. I like to have a season 2, because it ends like, there is so many questions in my head. Like who’s the Father of Kim Minchae.and etc🥺


  34. I would definitely like to see a season 2 of 25/21. I would like to see The wedding, and to see if Na heedo and yijin get together. Season 1 ended with so many questions And heartache. Please consider adding a second season
