On January 5, 2017, Netflix announced that it would produce its first original South Korean television series, with a release planned for 2018. The premiere date was eventually pushed back to August 2019.
The male lead role was initially offered to Ahn Hyo-seop but he declined the offer.
Lee Na-jung casted Kim So-hyun as Jojo is because of high synchronisation rate in appearance and her rich acting skills that is beyond her age. Moreover, Kim was the first choice to play Kim Jo-jo by Love Alarm webtoon author Chon Kye-young and online fans. As the reason for casting Jung Ga-ram, the director praised his eyes, saying they were lyrical, clear and clean, not like other actors in their 20s these days. Meanwhile, Song Kang went through audition competing with 900 people and got casted.
Love Alarm held an interactive experience zone from August 18 to September 1 at Lotte World Tower World Park Square. Each space decorated as if the app function in the drama is visualized in reality and gives a romantic experience to lovers, friends and family who visited the place. Moreover, an app has been released for the promotion events, that looks like the one in the series, but works differently.
Forbes's Joan MacDonald finds that Kim So-hyun fits well with the character Jojo. For MacDonald it is interesting that the two main characters kiss already in the first episode, without being a couple or before confessing their love. This is unusual for Korean dramas. For Stephen McCarty from the South China Morning Post is Love alarm not only an innocent love story, but also dealing with data protection, gay rights, the extreme consequences of heartache and social smartphone penetration.
