Has Netflix released any promotional material?
Only a small amount of promotional material has been released. We may see some more material release as we get closer to the release date.
When did production take place?
Unknown to many, Love Alarm was the first South Korean Original ordered by Netflix. But due to scheduling, the production of the series was pushed back.
Filming began earlier this year and concluded at the end of June.
How many episodes will Love Alarm air?
This information was surprisingly difficult to find but we have confirmation that the series will have eight episodes.
What are the run times of each episode?
This hasn’t been confirmed yet but we expect each episode to be around 45 minutes.
Is this a limited series?
It hasn’t been listed as a limited series and we’d be surprised if the title only had one season.
At the time of writing the Webtoon of which the series is based on has over 160 chapters. We’re not sure eight episodes is enough to cover that amount of source material.
Has Netflix released a trailer for Love Alarm?
Indeed they have! It’s been a long time coming but Netflix has finally released a trailer for Love Alarm.
When is the release date for Love Alarm?
Love Alarm will be available to stream on Netflix on Thursday, 22nd of August!
