In an interview with Starnews on March 8th, Kim Soo-Jung, the director of “Semantic Error,” expressed her thoughts on season 2. “Semantic Error” is a campus romance drama that tells the story of Choo Sang-woo (Park Jae-Chan), a computer science major who wishes to have a perfectly organized daily life. When he meets Jang Jae-young (Park Seo-Ham), a design major student, his life begins to change.
The drama “Semantic Error,” based on the popular Boys Love (BL) novel, has received a lot of attention, maintaining its No. 1 ranking in the Watcha Top 10 immediately after its release. As a result, interest in “Semantic Error” season 2 has naturally been growing.
“I often look for reactions to the drama,” said director Kim Soo-Jung. “Despite the fact that I directed the drama, I go to online websites to read reviews of it just like fans do. I found a lot of comments about ‘Semantic Error,’ and I was surprised to see how many people were watching our drama. The best response I’ve read was from a fan who said he had never watched the BL before but was starting to watch it due to ‘Semantic Error.‘“
Regarding the next season of the drama, the director stated that she did not have season 2 in mind while filming the first season. “The two fall in love, and the emotional story concludes with a happy ending.”
However, because the drama received a lot of positive feedback, the actors, the production company, and Watcha are all talking about the next season. “I believe Season 2 of ‘Semantic Error’ will only be possible if a number of conditions are met, even if I and the actors want to shoot,” the director said.
The director raised the expectations for Season 2 by saying, “If I get to do Season 2, there’s a lot I want to add.” She added, “Because there are so many scenes that I liked in the original webtoon versions so much that they were not included in the drama.”
“I’d like to film the scenes of Yeonseok-dong, beach chasing, and basketball court that fans want to see.”
