Navillera is created by the famous Choe Gyeong-suk. It is a Netflix-produced South Korean TV series that has a solid plot. The show is centered around a 70-year-old man named Shim Deok-Chul ( played by Park In-hwan). Shim has a life-long dream of learning ballet dancing and he wants to give that a try,
This dream of his turns into a reality when he meets a 23-year-old ballet dancer named Lee Chae-rok (Played by Song Kang). The young 23-year-old dancer Lee was going to give up his passion to focus on an actual career when he meets Deok. Deok, being 70, inspires the young kid to keep fighting for his dream. The two together create a friendship and have a really impressive story that unfolds gradually.
Is the show inspired by a Webtoon?
Yes, it is actually inspired by a webtoon that was released in 2016. A webtoon is basically a Korean-colored comic. The comic received quite a hype in many Asian countries and it became even bigger when the story got adapted. The first season of the show is delivered in a very appealing fashion. It doesn’t have any idealistic romances though. The show is straight forward and the characters are quite sympathetic. They have also given strong performances and are quite happy about their work.
The 12 episodes of this show is made with precision. It is crafted well and the narrative is very immersive. Now, let us check the release date for the second season of the show!
Navillera Season 2 Release Date
The first season of Navillera came out in 2021. It was released in March of 2021 and the series went through to April. It is on Netflix right now and has 12 episodes. The runtime of each episode is around 70 minutes. The show also premiered at the same time in South Korea as it did in the states.
Anyway, let us move on to the season 2 news. It hasn’t been confirmed. The second season is still in purgatory right now. While there is a serious possibility, the renewal is still very much something that might or might not happen.
Why do K-Dramas don’t get extended?
Most K-Dramas are appreciated universally but even with that type of following, they are not extended for a second season (mostly). This is mainly because Korean shows have neatly wrapped storylines. They don’t extend the content to appeal to any audience. They never drag and stretch unnecessarily.
We know that the shows in the United States like Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Expanse got extended because of fan outrage. This doesn’t happen in Korea. Most Korean shows leave no threads to extend. And this is the case for shows like Navillera. It is also a webtoon adaptation and this might be another reason why the show probably won’t get a second season (unless the Webtoon is continued). So, yeah there is a slight chance for Navillera to get a second season extension!
