Hwayoung is only making a special appearance on 'Generation of Youth' season 2.


The JTBC drama recently confirmed to return for a second season with all 5 main leads - Seungyeon, Han Ye Ri, Park Hye Soo, Park Eun Bin, and Hwayoung. However, the latest reports revealed that Hwayoung is not going to be a fixed cast member but only a cameo.

On March 16, Lee Tae Gon PD of the drama explained, "The story will continue on without excluding Hwayoung but she won't be having any special parts. There will be about one or two episodes with her but she won't be continuing the story in all 12 episodes."


This means Hwayoung is excluded from the original 5 members who lived together in one house. Lee PD also revealed that a new character is most likely to appear in replacement of Hwayoung. 


When asked if the change in the cast has relation to the recent T-ara controversy, Lee PD answered that the change has already been confirmed beforehand. He said, "It's something that we've finished discussing ahead of time. That (the controversy) is not something that we were concerned about. Even if it happened before the decision was made, it wouldn't have been a crucial matter for us."


'Youth of Generation' season 2 is set to air in August.

    This is a fantastic drama - one of the best of 2016. But, I did watch it after the Hwayoung bully scandal broke and would occasionally get distracted thinking about that while she was on screen. However, her character is one of the most interesting ones and her character is going through a new beginning - so more plot options for season 2. If they were honestly considering demoting her before the scandal, that seems foolish. It would make more sense if they made the decision after the scandal. I don't think they are being honest.

    I'm actually kinda sad abut this. She was one of my favorite characters on the show. I honestly had no idea about her scandals before watching AOY and just by judging her acting, I liked her. Her character was great and it won't be the same without her character. Either way, I feel like nobody deserves hate, and I hope AOY2 succeeds.

    AWWW HER CHARACTER MADE AGE OF YOUTH REALLY INTERESTING! It's a shame to let go of that character.

    In the sense of a business perspective it is understandable. She is a liability.

    Strictly speaking acting wise, her acting was pretty decent, and I'll really miss her character. That being said, I also really couldn't help thinking the whole time I was watching the drama of her personality in real life (which tbh was like her character's personality without the niceness - diva, arrogant, and mean). However, I'll look forward to a new character and they can get away quite nicely with just pulling her character out since her character wasn't really in college anyways and was starting a new life.

    Yes... her character was good but she as a person made many mistakes. I don't care what happens to Hwayoung  but it was obvious that Korea was going to do something about it. His character was good but te others were also good,  let's hope the new character be good too
