“XO, Kitty” Viewers Are “Obsessed” With The Show’s Unexpected Twist On Kitty’s Love Triangle
XO, Kitty, the spin-off series from the popular To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise, has finally been released on Netflix, and viewers couldn’t help but get invested in the fast-paced, K-Drama-inspired story.
The series follows the story of Kitty (Anna Cathcart) as she convinces her family to allow her to attend an international school in Seoul, Korea, to reunite with her boyfriend, Dae (Choi Min Young).
However, their reunion doesn’t go as planned, as when Kitty arrives in Korea, she discovers that Dae has a girlfriend, Yuri Han (Gia Kim).
In fact, the entire series focuses on the unpredictability of love and all the challenges that come with it as Kitty ends up with three potential romantic interests.
Her first love interest is Dae, of course, especially after it’s revealed that he’s not actually dating Yuri.

Min Ho (Sang Heon Lee) is her second love interest, who, as fans were able to predict from the trailer alone, plays a rich, enemies-to-lovers type love interest.

And her third love interest surprised viewers as Kitty starts on a journey to understand her sexuality after realizing she has feelings for Yuri, who is interested in Juliana (Regan Aliyah).

Although Kitty’s interest in Yuri surprised viewers, since it wasn’t hinted at in the trailers, fans are excited about the plot twist, especially since the purpose of XO, Kitty, is that Kitty is on a journey of self-discovery.
My girl's going through sexuality crisis 😭😭😭 kitty babe

I don’t think y’all understand that Kitty “randomly” catching feelings for Yuri is actually normal and plausible bc that’s what happens when you’re young and figuring out your sexuality & discovering yourself, sometimes it’s random and out of nowhere and sometimes it’s not.

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

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.

And the unexpected addition of a third love interest has left viewers struggling to figure out their favorite ship. Although Netflix has not officially renewed XO, Kitty for a second season, the ending of the first certainly leaves plenty of questions for viewers.
