This year’s hit drama Across the Ocean to See You is getting a second season! There will be a new story (and thus probably also a new cast), but the main elements of the first season will be kept: We’ll have a strong carreer woman with a secret and a nice and hardworking guy who will fall for her and do everything for her. The theme of the two cities will be kept as well, this time it will be Shanghai and Sydney (instead of London). No words on the cast yet.

Zhang Han and Korean actress Go Joon Hee’s modern music drama “The Rhapsody of a Summer Dream”, which wrapped up filming back in July 2016, is being presented at the fair as well. Could this mean that the end of the Hallyu Ban is nearing? Let’s hope so!
