This is unfortunate too much casting drama.  It has unfortunately made me lose interest in the upcoming show.

Agreed. School is not meant to air because they keep having issues starting from last year too.

Kim Yo Han, Cho Yi Hyun, Chu Young Woo, Hwang Bo Reum Byeol, And More Attend “School 2021” Script Reading


Oct 12, 2021 | by U. Kim


KBS 2TV’s long-awaited drama “School 2021” is coming!


“School 2021” is a drama about young adults who choose different paths instead of just preparing for college entrance exams. The drama will portray the dreams, friendships, excitement, and growth of the 18-year-old youths standing in front of an uncertain future.


On October 13, KBS revealed photos from the drama’s script reading. Main actors WEi’s Kim Yo Han, Cho Yi Hyun, Chu Young Woo, Hwang Bo Reum Byeol, Kim Kang Min, and Seo Hee Sun came with energy, and they were joined by supporting actors Park In Hwan, Jeon Suk Ho, Kim Kyu Sun, Lee Ji Ha, Kim Mi Sang, Jo Seung Yeon, and Kim Soo Jin.


Greeting the actors, director Kim Min Tae said, “I’m very thankful that you have joined us. I hope we’ll all cheer up and create a fun production.” Writers Dong Hee Sun and Jo Ah Ra commented, “It’s an honor to be here, and seeing you in person makes us feel like we can work even harder on writing. We look forward to working with you in the future, and we will work harder to make a good drama.”


WEi’s Kim Yo Han plays Gong Ki Joon, who lost his dream of Taekwondo due to an injury, while Cho Yi Hyun is the ambitious Jin Ji Won who has an unwavering dream. Hwang Bo Reum Byeol takes on the role of Kang Seo Young, who is preparing for the entrance exam on her own to enter one of the nation’s top five colleges. Chu Young Woo is Jung Young Joo, a transfer student with a hidden story and a past connection to the protagonist Gong Ki Joon. The actors all immersed into their characters and delivered their lines with passion.


Kim Kang Min as energizer Ji Ho Sung and Seo Hee Sun as idol trainee Go Eun Bi also showed perfect chemistry with the lead actors.

Jeon Suk Ho playing Lee Kang Hoon and Kim Kyu Sun as Song Chae Rin displayed fun chemistry as characters who seem similar but have different values. Park In Hwan in the role of Gong Ki Joon’s grandfather Gong Young Soo, Lee Ji Ha as chief director Goo Mi Hee, and Kim Min Sang in the role of the ambitious dean of academic affairs Lee Han Soo added another level of richness to the drama with their seasoned and detailed acting.


The “School 2021” script reading was a great success and raised anticipation for how the drama will portray the youthful but competitive story of high school students.


“School 2021” will air in November following the conclusion of “Dali and Cocky Prince” and will be available on Viki!

First episode was broadcast on November 24, and I think this drama is nearing the end. I was wondering whether any of our members were watching this?


The synopsis didn't sound bad since it's about high school students who are trying to achieve something other than studying day and night for their university entrance exams. Just didn't have time to watch much, but curious since the School series tends to be good when it's not focusing on teen romance.
