‘Color Rush’ gets a season 2
After several announcements in the past about the short and sweet BL ‘Color Rush’ getting a season 2, the production has confirmed the filming of the second season of the worldwide hit drama. Fans are excited to see Hyuk do something so bold as he already has been working on multiple acting projects since his short cameo appearance in the K-drama ‘The Heirs’ in 2014.
As of 2021, Hyuk is already said to have been working on two films while his first web-drama appearance was the 2017 Naver TV show ‘Romance Special Law’. ‘Color Rush 2’ will mark his second web drama and first BL appearance.
About ‘Color Rush’
The first season of the short K-drama ‘Color Rush’ was based on the web novel of the same name. The show won the 2nd Blythe Contest in the BL category. The show has become a phenomenon in which a neurotrophic protagonist who sees the world in gray is suddenly met with new colors when he meets a ‘probe’, a fateful opponent, and experiences an intense experience.
The show was first aired in 2020 starring Hwall, a member of the fourth-gen group The Boyz, and who made his acting debut with the show. Ever since the first season aired and rose to global popularity, fans have been asking for a second season.
About ‘Color Rush Season 2’
It is reported that the second season will focus on Yoohan, who is searching for both his mother and his probe, Yeon-woo. His classmate named Sehyun is trying to protect Yeon-woo. Actor Yoo Jun will be continuing his role as Yeon-woo, while VIXX’s Hyuk has been cast as Sehyun. Sehyun helps Yeon-woo uncover the mysteries about his mother’s disappearance, but he is also hiding a secret.
Jeon Daejin, the CEO of the Storywiz, the production house of the show, said, “Color Rush is on its way to being exported to Japan and Thailand, thanks to its popularity not only in domestic OTT, but also in global markets including China, Southeast Asia, Europe, and South America.” He added, “Our goal is to become a good partner who can create a new story IP with creators like Color Rush and expand its value.”
The second season of ‘Color Rush’ will be broadcast on various OTT platforms, including KT media channels, with the goal of simultaneously broadcasting worldwide at the end of December.
