Sassy Go Go Korean Drama Review

Sassy Go Go Korean Drama - Jung Eun Ji, Lee Won Geun, Ji Soo, Chae Soo Bin, and N 2

Sassy Go Go (also called Cheer Up) tells the story of the unpopular dance club and an elite group of high achieving students at a high school.  The two groups are forced to come together when their clubs are combined into a cheerleading club in order to enter a competition.

Jung Eun Ji stars as Kang Yeon Doo, the leader of the dance club.  She is a loyal friend and full of spirit.  When her dance club is threatened with being eliminated, she does all she can to prevent that from happening.

Yeon Doo is quickly at odds with the leader of the high achievers, Kim Yeol (Lee Won Geun).  Initially, he is cocky and likes to toy with Yeon Doo, but things change as he begins to develop feelings for her.

We also have Seo Ha Joon (Ji Soo) who is best friends with Yeol.  He comes off as tough, but he deals with abuse from his father and has even attempted suicide multiple times.  As I expected after seeing Ji Soo in Angry Mom, he was wonderful here.  He brings the emotional punches when needed, and my heart broke for him multiple times.

I also loved the bromance between him and Yeol.  Yeol would do anything for Ha Joon, and it was touching to see just how much he meant to Yeol.  It’s always nice to see such a close friendship.

Kwon Soo Ah (Chae Soo Bin) is the troublemaker of the smart group.  In order to further herself, she creates all kinds of problems for Yeon Doo and the other students.  This girl was so awful it was difficult to really sympathize with her, but I give credit to the drama for always showing her sensitive side, and that she really did struggle with what she was doing because of the immense pressure she was under.

Ha Dong Jae (N) is Yeon Doo’s best friend.  He has his own issues to deal with in that he dislikes being touched because of a traumatic incident as a child.  I felt so bad for him as he tried to overcome his fear in order to protect Yeon Doo.  The help he needs to overcome his problem eventually comes from an unlikely source.

And I did love teacher Yang Tae Beom (Kim Ji Suk).  He was such a kind and caring teacher who really did want the best for his students.  The same goes for cheerleading instructor Nam Jung Ah (Lee Mi Do). I found her humorous and fun, and she was nice to round out our teaching team.

Yeol and Yeon Doo had a sweet little romance with all of the lovely awkward high school moments.  I enjoyed this relationship, but I was equally sad that Ha Joon didn’t get the girl.  Luckily, both guys liking the same girl didn’t damage the guys friendship.  But seriously, Ji Soo, why are you the second lead??

Throughout the drama, we watch our students come together as a team to participate in the cheerleading competition.  We see them struggle, grow, and become closer friends.

Overall, Sassy Go Go was a pleasant watch.  There’s nothing new here, but it’s cute, fun, and heartwarming.  The 12 episodes passed by quickly, and I’m glad I took the time to watch it.
