In XO, Kitty Season 1, does Kitty have a brother?
While searching for more about her mother, Kitty discovers that she may have a half brother. This leads her on the mission to find out who her brother is. In the process, she becomes friends with one of her professors, Alex Finnerty. Alex is from Melbourne, Australia and is a new teacher at KISS. As he and Kitty grow closer, he reveals to her that he is adopted. Based on this newfound information, Kitty immediately believes that Alex is her brother. However, this turns out not to be true. But Alex has a half-sister who attends KISS. Who is she?
Who are Alex’s parents in Season 1 of XO, Kitty?
While Kitty is on a journey to learn more about her mother’s life, Alex searches for his birth parents. He moved to South Korea and became a teacher at KISS after finding out his birth father was Professor Lee. He found that out through a parentage test. He hoped to develop a relationship with Professor Lee, but Professor Lee kept giving him the cold shoulder. Later, Alex finds out that Professor Lee had no idea he had a son. So Professor Lee is Alex’s father. But who is his biological mother? Well, Kitty finds out who Alex’s mother is before he does.
Kitty and Yuri sneak into Professor Lee’s study to find a 1993 KISS yearbook. They open the yearbook and find a picture of Principal Lim and Eve Song (Kitty’s mother) as teenagers. In the picture, young Principal Lim is obviously pregnant, but young Eve is not. That’s when Kitty realizes that Alex isn’t her brother. She puts one and two together and realizes that Principal Lim is Alex’s birth mother, which means Yuri is his half-sister.
Later, Kitty relays this information to Alex, and Alex decides to confront Principal Lim. Talking to Principal Lim, Alex finds out that she really is his mother. But unfortunately, after their conversation, Principal Lim all but ignores Alex. In the end, Principal Lim does everything right by telling Professor Lee that Alex is his son. She then tells Yuri that she invited Alex to spend time with them over the holidays so they could develop a relationship with him.
So there you have it folks! Headmaster Lim and Professor Lee are Alex’s biological parents.
