Scarlet Heart Ryeo ended a week ago, but an update has hinted that the story might not be over yet. A cast member?s image circulating online teased what could be an alternative ending or Scarlet Heart Ryeo season 2.
The SBS series starred IU as Hae Soo, a modern-day girl who drowned during an eclipse. She mysteriously woke up back in the Goryeo era, where she met Prince Wang So. The male protagonist was played by Lee Joon Gi.
Last Nov. 7, IU ? also known as Lee Ji Eun ? shared a never-before-seen photo of a crying Hae Soo on Instagram. On the right side is a hand offering her a handkerchief. Fans speculate that the mysterious person is the modern-day version of Prince Wang So.
?Huh? Handkerchief..?? the actress captioned the image, along with an emoji of a moon and heart.
Alternate ending or sequel?
There has been no explanation from Scarlet Heart Ryeo showrunners about where the image is from. Some viewers are speculating that there might be an extended TV special that will show an alternative ending.
There have also been a lot of buzz online about a possible second installment. If Scarlet Heart Ryeo season 2 happens, it is likely to continue the romance of Hae Soo and Wang So in the 21st century.
Fans have been actively suggesting the concept on social media, but SBS has yet to give feedback about this possibility.
Scarlet Heart Ryeo season 2 cast
However, it is uncertain if the star-studded Scarlet Heart Ryeo cast will still be available for another chapter of the dark romantic drama.
It was recently reported that IU will start focusing on music again. Her comeback concert is already slated before the end of this year.
Ji Eun will also be starring in the highly-anticipated ?Meteor Garden remake? along with 5 other Hallyu heartthrobs.
