The casting process has almost wrapped up for the drama "Who Are You - School 2015." And soon school will be in session.
"Who Are You - School 2015" is the sixth in the series of KBS school dramas. Each of the dramas has focused on issues that face today's students in Korea. This one focuses on the precariously positive and negative sides of popularity.
This "School" drama is so far set to star David Lee, Kim So Hyun, Nam Joo Hyuk and Yook Seong Jae. The drama is set in Gangnam's upscale Segang High School.
Kim So Hyun, who also appears in the early episodes of "Sensory Couple," starring Park Yoochun and Shin Se Kyung, will play two roles in "School 2015."
She plays Eun Byul, the most popular girl in the school. Eun Byul rules the school and is the girl that every other girl wants to be. But then Eun Byul mysteriously disappears. And a transfer student who looks like her starts pretending to be her.
Kim So Hyun also plays the transfer student who looks like Eun Byul. At her last school she was bullied and had no friends. Suddenly she's a star. Ironically, the girl who was at the bottom of the social ladder in one school becomes the most popular at her new school.
That's a hard thing to give up.
Model-turned-actor Nam Joo Hyuk plays Ham Ian, a handsome high school student and exceptional swimmer. He presents a cold and indifferent front but he's really a nice guy. He's afraid to reveal his true self. Nam was last seen playing Park Dae Bak in the drama "The Idle Mermaid."
Actor and BTOB member Yook Seung Jae plays Gong Tae Gwang, a troubled boy with an explosive temper. Yook last played the teenage brother in the drama "Nine Plus Boys."
David Lee, who played Seo Hwa's younger brother in "Gu Family Book, will play honor student Park Min Joon. His character's nickname is "Study Robot" and he comes Eun Byul's academic rival.
Several stars have seen a boost in their careers after appearing in the "School" series. The series is known for introducing young rising stars. Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin, who starred in "School 2013," became household names after they played two friends who deal with school bullying.
"Who Are You - School 2015" will premiere on April 27.
