K-drama "Nevertheless" delivered swoon-worthy visuals and heart-stopping moments featuring lead stars Han So Hee and Song Kang.

Based on the popular webtoon of the same name written by Jeong Seo, the 10-episode series follows the story of two college art students at Hongseo University who have a contrasting point of view in love and life.

In the drama "The World of the Married" star took on the role of the timid senior student, Yu Na Bi, who turned out to be skeptical about romance due to her failed relationship.

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old South Korean heartthrob portrays the campus crush, Park Jae Eon, who only believes in flings, one night stands, and is afraid of committing to a serious relationship.

After debuting on June 19, "Nevertheless" gained an overwhelming response on social media, lauding the on-screen chemistry between the lead actors.

In addition, because of the unusual characteristic of the male lead (not to mention several red flags shown towards Na Bi), viewers expressed their love for Chae Jong Hyeop's role as Yang Do Hyeok, hoping that he'll be her end game.

With this, several fans get so hooked on the webtoon-based drama that they even had the hashtag #TeamPotato and #TeamButterfly as they predict the character who will have Yu Na Bi's heart.

Following the highly anticipated finale, this raises the question if "Nevertheless" will return for the much-awaited season two.

It's been over two weeks since "Nevertheless" bid goodbye, giving the viewers heart fluttering scenes between Park Jae Eon and Yu Na Bi.

Unfortunately, amid viewers' requests for the second season, JTBC or drama officials never spoke about the possibility of having the webtoon series return for a new season.

As of this writing, an official announcement is yet to be made clear whether Song Kang and Han So Hee's drama is set to continue.

Moreover, this also concludes that despite the massive buzz on social media, "Nevertheless" had low viewership ratings.

According to Nielsen Korea, the JTBC drama's highest rating only achieved 2.207 percent during its premiere and continued with around 1 percent during the entire broadcast.

It is safe to say that the viewership rating played a big part in the romance drama won't be returning for season two.

However, if JTBC surprisingly announced the possibility of having the drama return for a sequel, fans would be delighted to know what happened to Park Jae Eon and Yu Na Bi's romance.

"Nevertheless," season 2's yet to be confirmed sequel might focus on the flourishing marriage as well as their challenges as a couple.

Apart from the lead stars, viewers wish to see the update on the SolJiwan couple, portrayed by Lee Ho Jung and Yoon Seo Ah, as well as the love story between Oh Bit Na and Nam Kyu Hyun, acted by Yang Hye Ji and Kim Min Gwi.

In addition, netizens are also curious about Yang Do Hyeok's possible romance.

To recall, the season finale showed that the chef turned social media star is on his date and was seen by Na Bi; however, she decides not to greet and disturb Do Hyeok, and instead, she continues chatting with Jae Eon.
