8 Fun Facts about Netflix's To All The Boys: Always and Forever

To All the Boys: Always and Forever
is the third and final instalment in Netflix's successful romcom franchise To All The Boys, based on a trilogy of novels of the same name by Jenny Han. The film follows Lara Jean Covey as she prepares for the end of high school and the start of adulthood when a pair of life-changing trips lead her to reimagine what life with her family, friends, and Peter will look like after graduation.

Here are some fun facts from the highly-anticipated sequel:

●  The Empire State Building in New York City was actually lit in the film’s signature colors — magenta, cyan, and yellow — for the rooftop party scene.

●  The prom scene was shot in one day and ended up being the first prom (or the only prom!) that many got to attend. As emotionally difficult as the scene was to film, it still ended up being a blast for everyone there.

●  Director Michael Fimognari’s favorite scene to film for To All the Boys: Always and Forever is all the scenes with the sisters.

They have so much fun, they make each other better, and they laugh all day long. Anytime Janel, Anna, and Lana are in the room, you know it's going to be a special day. And I’d also say going to Seoul. That's where we ended the production, and so that was a very special way to say goodbye to it.

●  Jenny Han’s favorite scene in To All the Boys: Always and Forever is the cupcake cafe scene.

There's so much genuine emotion in this scene and so much vulnerability. My heart aches for both of them, knowing what's to come.

●  The cafe that Lara Jean visits in Seoul was not a set. It exists in real life! It’s called “Cafe Yeonnam-dong 223-14” (named after its address), and it’s one of the most Instagrammed spaces in the city.

●  In keeping with tradition, author Jenny Han has a cameo in the third film. Fans will notice her character has a mini arc of her own across all three films: She appears in flashback sequences as a middle school principal in the first and third films, and as the Vice Principal of Adler High in the second film, giving the character a nice little career trajectory.

●  The scene where Gen compliments Lara Jean on her shoes in the hallway mirrors the scene where Gen insults Lara Jean’s shoes in the first film shot-for-shot.

●  Several crew members, including Michael Fimognari and his family, left love locks on the fence at Namsan Tower in Seoul after filming at the location - just like Lara Jean and her sisters did!
