The long-awaited spin-off of popular movies To All The Boys I’ve Loved Loved is finally out and turning heads!

In this series, Kitty goes to Seoul, South Korea, to study at the same school her mother attended and where her long-distance boyfriend Dae is at – but she quickly realizes that her great adventure will be much more difficult than she ever imagined.

“Having lived in Korea, K-Pop, BTS and BLACKPINK dances at Coachella are all over my For You page to this day. I just feel like everyone loves K-pop. So why not bring it to the show? »
Of course, some actors already knew kpop and were already fans. Such is the case of Gia Kim who plays the role of Yuri.
“The high point of my K-pop-crazy days was definitely high school.
I was really happy to hear that they recorded all these really great K-Pop songs, because K-Pop now has a huge global fan base and I’m proud of how it’s developing, especially in Korean.
I’m glad they recorded all these great songs because I have a feeling a lot of people who love K-Pop will love it too. [show] Also. »
