I love the diversity of the show. There is only kissing which is fine. There is a little language but not that bad. However there is teen drinking and getting drunk. There is no presence of drugs.

Is It Any Good?

Frothy and sweet, this spin-off doesn't require too much attention from its young viewers but will certainly inspire some serious wanderlust. XO, Kitty's coming-of-age story -- refreshingly set in South Korea, with Korean American and South Korean stars -- isn't quite as endearing as To All the Boys I've Loved Before. But the series doesn't try to be more than it is: an American-made show with a K-drama vibe, sprinkled with a few lessons on growing up.
