SBS' period drama Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo has several reasons to return with season 2 and the fans are eagerly waiting for the network to announce the renewal news.

Secondly, the Korean-mini series excelled in viewership ratings and managed to pull in a large number of international audiences. This element might force the network to renew the series for a second instalment.
Thirdly, the words of cast member Nam Joo Hyuk about a reunion of the princes of Goryeo Dynasty came as a hope to the followers who are curious about the next season.
While sharing his final thoughts about the Korean mini-series, the actor said, "It's going to be another drama that I will never forget. I hope there will be a time for us brothers to reunite soon."
The Korean entertainer even stated that he missed the drama set while watching the broadcast and turned himself into a viewer who became sad watching the death of every character. According to him, he faced several challenges during the production process mainly because it was his first historical drama.
"But I always had fun with the brothers. Especially, the scenes with all the princes. Those 6-months of living as Baek Ah was real happiness. We played around a lot and became very close," AllKpop quoted the young actor as saying.
The 22-year-old actor of Cheese In The Trap fame even stated Scarlet Heart Ryeo successfully created a great director, scriptwriter, actors, staff, and everyone.
