Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) Season 2 Plot: What it can be About?
The first season of the series ends with a lot of uncertainty about the future of some of the characters. Nam Ga-bin flirts with Park Hae-ryun before they eventually end up sleeping with each other. While Hae-ryun’s family celebrates Hyang-gi’s (his daughter’s) birthday at home, he is busy cheating and does not even regret it. At the same time, Sa-hyeon finally tells Song Won that he wants a divorce.
In season 2, we can expect to see Park Hae-ryun face the consequences of his action. He is not only letting his wife down but also neglecting his daughter. He will probably lose everyone who truly loves him, which may finally make him realize that he is disrespecting his relationships. Although Sa-hyeon looks pretty confident that he now wants a divorce, but will it make him happy? There is a lot to explore in the upcoming season, and we can expect the show to be just as entertaining as it has been so far.
