Official Synopsis of XO Kitty
According to the official synopsis, teenage matchmaker Kitty Covey believes she has a deep understanding of true love. However, when she embarks on a journey halfway across the world to reunite with her long-distance romantic partner, Kitty soon discovers that relationships are much more complex and challenging when her own feelings are at stake.
The drama begins with 16-year-old Kitty leaving Portland, Oregon, for Seoul, Korea, where she will spend her junior year. There, she unexpectedly encounters her boyfriend, Dae (played by Choi Min-young), and finds herself attending the same boarding school her late mother once did—the Korean Independent School of Seoul.
In an interview, Jenny Han explained that the decision to set the show in Korea was intentional, as it aligns with Kitty’s story and allows for a unique portrayal of her journey.
