The 2018 South Korean period romantic drama series ‘100 Days My Prince’ tells the story of a crown prince who develops amnesia after an accident. He starts living the life of an ordinary person in a village and falls in love with a girl in the process. Created by Studio Dragon and written by No Ji-sul, the series is directed by Lee Jong-jae. It premiered in 2018 and was well-received by the critics and the audiences.

The show became the eighth highest-rated Korean drama in the history of cable television. Later, Netflix picked it up and dropped it for the international release in December 2020. In case you’re done binge-ing and are looking for the details of ‘100 Days My Prince’ season 2, you’re at the right place!

100 Days My Prince Season 2 Release Date

‘100 Days My Prince’ season 1 premiered on Netflix on December 7, 2020. The first season consists of sixteen episodes, plus two specials. Prior to its release on the streaming giant, the show premiered on tvN from September 10, 2018, to October 30, 2018.

It proved to be a successful venture not only in South Korea but across the globe. The show was broadcasted in several other countries, including Malaysia, Japan, Chile, Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar and other southeast Asian countries. Naturally, fans have been yearning for season 2 since the successful end of the first season. However, the makers are yet to make an official announcement regarding the second season. Since the story ends on a conclusive note, ‘100 Days My Prince’ season 2 doesn’t seem like a possibility as of now. 

100 Days My Prince Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?

The main cast of ‘100 Days My Prince’ features Crown Prince Lee Yul (Do Kyung-soo), noblewoman turned owner of all-solution agency Yeon Hong Shim / Yoon Yi-seo (Nam Ji-hyun), Vice Premier Kim Cha-eon (Jo Sung-ha), adviser Jung Jae-yoon (Kim Seon-ho) and crown princess Kim So-hye (Han So-hee). The same set of characters might return if the second season is made to carry forward the story.

100 Days My Prince Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?

Unlike other Korean dramas that are high in action, quick dialogues, huge set pieces, and gore, the show has a simple storyline with a feel-good tone, making it an interesting watch. Hong Shim, who has been living as Yoon Yi-seo, used to be a noblewoman but now hides her true identity from everyone except her adoptive father.

Being the oldest single woman in the village, a nobleman offers her to be his mistress, which she declines. As a punishment, he orders 100 floggings for her. To save her, Shim’s father tells him that she is engaged to Yul, using Yul’s amnesia as an excuse. In the end, Yul and Yi marry each other. But the two are unaware of each other’s true identities.

The second season can start exactly from the ending of season 1, showing Yul and Yi’s married life and how their past might affect their future. It would be fun to see what happens if the two learn about each other’s identities and their repercussions on the relationship. We can also expect to see new characters being introduced.
