My Amazing Boyfriend Season 2 我的奇妙男友2之恋恋不忘 begins filming with a very noticeable change in the cast as neither Janice Wu (Fighter of the Destiny) nor Kim Tae Hwan (Bride of the Water God) have returned to reprise their roles, which ought to be a letdown for fans hoping for a reunion.
The show seems quick to acknowledge this, but asks for understanding and support. Shui Qian Mo who was the screenwriter for the original and the sequel also voiced out her thoughts by saying that the plan all along was to continue the story between Tian Jing Zhi and Xue Ling Qiao if they could get the same cast and write up completely new characters if they couldn’t, but then things don’t always go as planned.
Kim Tae Hwan was probably never tapped for the sequel due to the hallyu ban while Janice Wu also had scheduling conflicts, which leads to the new couple pairing between Thai actor Mike D’Angelo and newcomer Esther Yu who is from the same management company as Janice Wu.
The sequel continues the love story between mutant and human by adding a baby to the mix once the heroine finds out that she is pregnant. We can also expect to see familiar faces with Fu Jia as the policeman, Yang Yi Fei as the ever loyal assistant, Tian Li as mom and Zhang Li Wei as dad. The crew is back behind the scenes with Long Ya as producer and Shui Qian Mo and Wang Xiong Cheng writing the screenplay. This drama is a Huace Film and TV production.
