You would have understood, this is a love triangle. The 2 best friends are in love with the same girl and many viewers have the Second Lead Syndrome.

The viewers are stuck in the love triangle and have a hard time choosing between the two of them. At the beginning of the season, it seemed obvious JoJo liked SunOh but near the end, it was no longer sure.

Would you prefer SunOh who is actively going closer to JoJo or HyeYeong who is watching her from far? Would you prefer SunOh who is confessing powerfully or HyeYeong who is confessing softly? Would you prefer SunOh who wants to receive attention or HyeYeong who gives attention? Would you prefer SunOh who recomforts with actions of HyeYeong who recomforts with words?

 4 Reasons Why The Love Triangle Of “Love Alarm” Gets Viewers Torn Apart

Be aware of the spoilers.

 

1- SunOh, loving and deep in love boyfriend

SunOh is very active and expressive in his love for JoJo. He loves her and always shows his love. As a boyfriend, he never misses an occasion to make her heartbeat. Don't forget to check the Top 6 Most Heart-Fluttering Lines Of SunOh (Song Kang) In “Love Alarm”.

The boy always supports her, for instance, he paid for her to be able to eat at the cafeteria. SunOh also understands her traumatic past and difficult situation and never misses the occasion to cheer her up.

His personality is carefree and slightly arrogant.

Moreover, he still deeply loves her even after 4 years and how she -heartlessly- broke up with him. A sign that he has true feelings for her.

Both were happy together and that seemed like real true love.

2- SunOh, creepy and clingy & too high self-esteem

To be honest, the very first impression of SunOh in episode 1 was not so good. Not everyone would agree on this, but here is my point.

SunOh followed the crush of his long-term close friend and asked her to follow him in a small alley. Then, suddenly he went on asking her if she wanted to kiss him and that he was sure that she liked him already despite barely knowing each other. For me, it sounded a bit creepy.

After episode 1, his character was very romantic and showed that he truly cared for her.

However, he also hinted from time to time that he was clingy and overly possessive.

For example, when he said "Jealousy ... Don't even look at boy bands, and don't talk about my friends. I'm doing this for people to see that you're all mine". To some people, his lines could sound romantic while for some they sound possessive

The boy also has a high opinion about himself. When JoJo broke up with him, he could not believe that someone could break up with someone like him and he is always full of his immense popularity.

Moreover, the last of his cons is that, after 4 years, he still likes her but he has a girlfriend.

 

3- HyeYeong, sweet and long-time love for her

HyeYeong too has a lot of pros.

Most of the viewers would agree that he is a kind, shy and sweet guy. He has a crush for JoJo who is at the same school as him and works at the same restaurant as him. However, he is always looking at her from far.

Netflix

In the beginning, he knew that she had a boyfriend (IlSik as Shin SeungHo) and refused to take one step further. It was the same when she started to date SunOh. He proved that he was considerate.

He is protecting her in her back. You would remember the time students were accusing JoJo of the soccer accident she had with SunOh. HyeYeong without hesitation went on to defend her and asked how it could be because of her.

In the adult time -4 years later-, he is stealing even for hearts with his sweet actions to JoJo. His character looked the coolest during that time.

One of his sweet scenes is, for example, the time he helped her when JoJo's cousin was throwing her stuff by the window of the house.

The boy is not asking for her love but simply confessed his feelings and is happy to ring her love alarm. HyeYeong is not giving her any pressure and that is charming.

 

4- HyeYeong, overly passive

HyeYeong is a nice guy however he is overly passive during their high school days and that is his major con.

During high school. HyeYeong had plenty of time to talk to JoJo and to get close to her during their part-time. However, he was just looking at her from far. Then, he decided to confess when it was already too late. Let's be honest, he had a serious issue with timing.

Moreover, following her with his bike from far after work, looked like he was staking her.

After 4 years, JoJo is no longer with SunOh anymore and HyeYeong still likes her. He tried to be more active and refused to let her go back to SunOh. The question is: isn't it too late?

He is one step behind SunOh because of the past JoJo and him share. Could HyeYeong and JoJo date when she used to have this special connection with his best friend? The fact that he is late could be also added in his cons.

 

Do you prefer SunOh [Song Kang] or HyeYeong [Jung GaRam]?

Worst kdrama ending! waste of time! pure garbage!!
why build up sun-oh and jojo if she's going to end with the other guy. And the reason for their breakup is so shallow and non-sense.
Everything is wasted and ruined in season 2, not recommended!
Don't watch the series, you'll only be disappointed at how ridiculous and poorly the storyline.

I am sorry to say what is on my mind but I think of all this is connected as your are watching it is to understand your heart is the leader of your love life and appearance don't always grant a happy blissful life movies always have a connection to us in particular or those around us.

Everyone is talking about hye young and sun oh but nobody is talking about what jojo wants, i hope she doesn't make the same mistake again, i genuinely root for jojo and sun oh to be together again therefore rectifying her mistake. If jojo chooses hye young in the end then this drama will be a disaster and it will be a senseless drama......this is what i think.
Thank you

This is my opinion it is okay if you disagree with what I am about to say I am open to hearing other people's thoughts🤍 so in my opinion jojo should end up with sun oh in the end and I know a lot of ppl would be like omg I've heard this like a billion times but it's true but before they get back together I want to see how things could work out between jojo and hey yeong I want to see them date for a little bit before in the end she returns back to sun oh… Read more »

Sun-Oh is still the best..remember when he first saw her. It seemed that he already fall in love with her even though he knew that his best friend already like her he can't control his feelings like hye-yeong does..he kissed her to test hye-yeong and JoJo kissed him back he tells it to hye-yeong he don't do anything he also denied he likes her ..it's not that he don't want to fight sun-Oh or hurt him,it's just a cowardice..if he really loves her or loves her enough,he could say "dude,you know I like her,back off..don't do that again" but no...he… Read more »

It looks like Season 2 will favor the webtoons as it should be in my opinion. People who know how it will end will be "satisfied" based on the webtoons. Those who are purely watching for "something more," or a different ending, I can see why people want Sun-Oh to be the person for JoJo. I can see your sympathy regarding this since 3/4 if not all 6/7 of 8 episodes resolved around Sun-Oh loving JoJo. This portrayed Sun-Oh as the person JoJo would love and relates the most to many viewers. Because Hye-Young did not get much focus or… Read more »
