This article discusses whether there will be a season 2 of the K-Drama series If You Wish Upon Me and its renewed or cancelled status. 

What is season 1 of If You Wish Upon Me all about?

There was a fair amount of hype around this new k-drama, which starred Ji Chang-wook (Backstreet Rookie) and concerned itself with the shenanigans of a real organization in the Netherlands that helps with granting the final wishes of terminal cancer patients. The plot was — Yoon Gyeo Rye’s life has been tough. He lived at an orphanage and also spent time in a juvenile detention center and prison. He struggles to have a normal life. Due to an incident, he begins to volunteer at a hospice. There, he works with volunteer team leader Kang Tae Shik and nurse Seo Yeon Joo.

Will there be a season 2 of the K-Drama series If You Wish Upon Me – renewed or cancelled status

Status: TBC/not renewed yet

As we write this article, If You Wish Upon Me has not been renewed for a second season by KBS2. However, it’s not unusual for the industry to wait until they decide on renewal. 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 about ratings? Will that influence whether there will be a renewal?

If You Wish Upon Me has not done well in the Nielsen Korea ratings. On September 22nd, 2022, the Korean drama posted a 1.6% rating Nationwide, it’s lowest so far. The series stared with a 3.6% rating with episode 1.

While we don’t like to make predictions, we cannot see this series making it for a season 2.
