This article discusses (or speculates) whether there will be a season 2 of the K-Drama series Link: Eat, Love, Kill and its renewed or cancelled status.
What was season 1 all about?
Link: Eat, Love, Kill is a fantasy drama that taps into emotions. In the series, Yeo Jin-goo (as seen in Hotel Del Luna) plays executive chef Eun Gye-hoon. Playing beside him is Moon Ga-young (as seen in True Beauty), who stars as No Da-hyun, an employee at the same restaurant. And then, one day, a supernatural phenomenon connects the pair — Gye-hoon starts to feel every emotion that Da-hyun is going through in her daily life. It’s also revealed that Gye-hoon has a lost twin sister that went missing 20 years prior; he’s set up a restaurant in the same town.
Link: Eat, Love, Kill took over the Monday/Tuesday slot previously occupied by Military Prosecutor Doberman on tVN, so it had some big shoes to fill!

Will there be a season 2 of the K-Drama series Link: Eat, Love, Kill – renewed or cancelled status
Status: not renewed/ TBC
As we write this article, Link: Eat, Love, Kill has not been renewed for a second season. However, it’s not unusual for the industry to wait until they make a decision on renewal. As we know, most K-Dramas tend to enjoy a single-season story and wrap things up conclusively by the finale. So once we have seen the conclusion, we’ll be able to sense what the writers have in mind. However, that doesn’t mean it will not be renewed. While the K-Drama industry tends to enjoy single-season stories, the trend of second and third seasons has increased in the last 12 months.
What we will say is that critically, the series has been well-received with MyDramaList giving it an average rating of 8.4/10 from their readers. IMDB has it listed as 8.2/10.
What about ratings?
Of course, in Korea, the ratings are equally important as the critics. While viewers have been lowering per episode, nationwide, the series has managed to achieve 2.234% on July 5th, however, we do note that the series dropped to 4th in audience share on July 11th.
