“XO, Kitty” Creator Jenny Han Eliminates Any Doubt About Kitty’s Love Triangle
Xo, Kitty is a newly released Netflix series that follows the story of Kitty (Anna Cathcart) from the popular To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise. The series follows Kitty on a journey of self-discovery as she flies to South Korea to attend the same international school her mother used to attend.
Of course, the added benefit is that Kitty’s long-time boyfriend, Dae (Choi Min Young), also attends the school, but their reunion doesn’t go as planned.
Instead, Kitty is thrown into a love triangle between Dae, Min Ho (Lee Sang Heon), and Yuri Han (Gia Kim).
While the love triangle between Dae and Min Ho was evident from the trailer, viewers hadn’t expected the twist of Kitty developing a crush on Yuri.
so I’ve just finished xo, kitty. from the teasers i completely got the wrong impression. i’m actually glad they decided to rather tell a story about self discovery.
also, the show is a clear response of asian productions success from western media and I found myself enjoying it.

As the show focuses on Kitty’s self-discovery, many viewers are excited to see Kitty explore her sexuality.
Kinda obsessed with how the whole plot of XO, Kitty is a self proclaimed love expert getting real lessons in love, experiencing everything from first loves, to unrequited loves, all on the path to self discovery and possibly–finally–true love. But for that we need a season two… pic.twitter.com/SjfHqTzMYN

But some viewers felt Kitty’s crush on Yuri was included “for representation” rather than as a viable option in the love triangle. However, the show’s creator, Jenny Han, quickly ended these claims.
Viewers voiced their support for Jenny Han’s reply.

With some pointing out that Kitty’s sudden crush on Yuri is similar to Min Ho’s sudden crush on Kitty.
yeah and also!!! no one has a problem with minho suddenly liking kitty which was the same way kitty realized she likes yuri

it makes me mad that people say she just started liking yuri out of nowhere and thats why they dont like it, but so did minho with kitty… they were both sudden and out of nowhere, like a real crush… https://t.co/nvgK6eAp3d
