Kim Se Jung of the group Gugudan has been confirmed to be starring in the new KBS drama School 2017. School 2017 is part of the popular School series that are each standalone seasons. It focuses on high school students and issues they struggle with like grades and bullying. It comes from the writer of the Let’s Eat series.
An offer previously went out to Kim Yoo Jung, but she turned it down. Kim Se Jung will play a smart and cheerful girl who ends up wrongly labeled as a delinquent.
Starring alongside her will be Kim Jung Hyun (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) as the school bad boy and Jang Dong Yoon (Solomon’s Perjury) as the golden boy who seems to have it all.
Other students include Seol In Ah (Strong Woman Do Bong Soon) and Rowoon (Click Your Heart). Han Joo Wan (Blow Breeze) will play a teacher.
We have a lot of newer actors in this lineup, but that’s what the School series has long been known for. And with the cast pretty much in place, cameras are set to roll!
School 2017 is looking to air in July on KBS.
