The final episode of JTBC drama 'Age of Youth 2' aired on October 7. Actresses Han Ye-ri, Han Seung-yeon, Park Eun-bin, Ji Woo, and Choi Ah-ra sat down to reveal thoughts on the drama's conclusion.

As noted by website Soompi, Han Ye-ri, who played the role of Yoon Jin-myung, was not saddened by the fact that the cast would have to separate. She had a very positive outlook and said, "Wrapping up this drama doesn't make me think that it's the ending, but gives me hope that we will see each other soon."

In fact, a few days back, Han Ye-ri said she hoped there would be a third season of 'Age of Youth.' "Season one ended, and it is almost the end of season two. I shouldn't be like this but I keep thinking that maybe we could have season three. When season one ended, I was so sad that we wouldn't be able to do this again, but now that season two is ending, I'm slightly hopeful that there might be a possibility [for a third season] so I'm not too sad," she had said. However, there is no official word on a third season yet.

Actress Han Seung-yeon, who played Jung Ye-eun, looked back fondly on the memories of working on both the seasons of 'Age of Youth.' She said, "I spent two summer seasons with 'Age of Youth' and 'Age of Youth 2.' I hope that the viewers will reminisce back to their youth through our drama. I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to act with great friends about a sometimes painful, but beautiful, period of time called youth."

Park Eun-bin talked of having understood her character Song Ji-won better in the second season. "I was able to have even more fun in 'Age of Youth 2.' I was able to get into character really quickly as if I had lived as Song Ji-won my entire life. I was so happy I could work with great friends, staff, and directors."

Ji Woo kept it short and said, "I can't believe that it's already the end. I am so thankful that I was able to be Eun Jae. I will not forget the fun times acting with all of the cast." She was not in Season 1 of 'Age of Youth.'

Finally, it was Choi Ah-ra's turn. She said, "Since this was my first drama, I think I feel a bit of sadness. I'm thankful that we were able to wrap up filming without anybody getting hurt. It was such a happy time in my life."

Many fans commented on social media expressing their desire for a third season of 'Age of Youth.' It remains to be seen if their wish becomes a reality.
