Have you caught up with XO, Kitty yet? It’s one of the trendiest series that was recently released on Netflix on May 18, 2023, and we’re still hooked on it!

XO, Kitty is a captivating romantic comedy-drama streaming series created by the talented Jenny Han. This series is actually a spin-off of the beloved To All the Boys(TATB) film series, which itself is based on Han’s popular book trilogy titled “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.” 

It’s the first time Netflix has turned one of its original films into a television series. With Han at the helm as the writer, executive producer, and showrunner, XO, Kitty follows the delightful adventures of Kitty Song Covey as she embarks on a journey to reconnect with her roots and love. 

Anna Cathcart skillfully reprises her role as the lovable protagonist.

Hold on tight, because we’re about to dive into the captivating world of “XO, Kitty”! Without giving away too many spoilers, let’s take a moment to reflect on what we already know and catch a glimpse of what the trailers and the “To All the Boys” film series have teased us with.

From the start, we follow Kitty on her exciting journey to meet her love interests in Korea, particularly Kim “Dae” Daeheon, who is currently studying at the prestigious Korean Independent School of Seoul (KISS).

Journey to KISS

It’s fascinating to note that Kitty’s mom once attended the same school for a year during her prime. In a nutshell, Kitty manages to convince her dad to travel to South Korea and join KISS by delivering a persuasive presentation. Her desire to connect with her Korean roots and explore her mother’s past is a driving force behind her decision.

However, life in Korea turns out to be far from a fairytale. Kitty finds herself forming new friendships with Q, Yuri, and Minho – we love him with his wittiness! (played by Gia Kim, Anthony Keyvan, and Sang Heon Lee), some of whom become her closest companions, while others bring unexpected twists, especially in her love life! Brace yourself for the first batch of spoilers that will leave you wanting more.

The Fun Begins!

The fun begins for us, maybe not too much for Kitty. 

Spanning ten riveting episodes, each instalment of “XO, Kitty” delivers a rollercoaster of emotions with its unpredictable plot twists and turns. Creator Jenny deserves applause for her ingenious storytelling, seamlessly incorporating Korean cultural nuances such as the significance of Chuseok and the dos and don’ts of Korean customs.

We wholeheartedly recommend this series, as the ending, though somewhat predictable, leaves us craving more. Personally, I found the ending to be quite satisfying, and I can’t wait to see what the next season has in store!
