    2012-11-05 11:10  l   CJ E&M enewsWorld Stewart Ho

    The return of the School series is officially going withSchool 2013 as its title. 

    KBS made the announcement on November 5 and also released a first group poster of the actors portraying the drama’s students in their school uniforms. 

    The group poster shows the friends of Seungri High School’s second year, second class friends. Portrayed by Lee Jong Seok, Park Se Young, Kim Woo Bin, Ryu Hyoyoung and more, the realistic uniforms and the actors’ fresh faces are already being met with favorable responses. 

    A member of the drama’s production shared, “To create a realistic school-feel, we directly produced the school uniforms. We were all surprised to see how real everything looked once the actors donned the school uniforms.” 

    The original School series had four seasons, which aired from 1999 through 2002. 

    The new drama will focus on portraying realistic issues, struggles and dilemmas of today’s youths with the first episode premiering on December 3.

    All dressed up and ready for School

    by javabeans | November 5, 2012 | 

    Here’s our first look at the cast, in character, for KBS’s upcoming drama School 2013 — which appears to (finally!) have settled on its title after a bunch of rather half-hearted changes (they flirted with 2013 School, then School 5). You’d think if they were going to be so wishy-washy they could have at least entertained something more… well, entertaining.

    Naming aside, I’m looking forward to the show, which remakes the ’90s series that featured so many of today’s big stars. The leads in the younger generation — namely,Lee Jong-seok, Kim Woo-bin, and Park Se-young — are dressed here in uniforms; they play students in their second year of Seungri High School (so, 17- and 18-year-olds). It’s an ideal year for drama depiction (similar to how U.S. stories seem to favor junior year), given that the students are old enough to feel the turbulence of transitioning to adulthood, yet still have plenty of time ahead of them before graduating to university. And given the show’s premise, I think we’re going to be seeing plenty of adolescent turmoil and coming-of-age angst. I’m just crossing my fingers that they manage that balance in a skillful, poignant way.

    Below are photos from the recent script rehearsal, which includes the adults in the cast. Namely, Jang Nara and Daniel Choi as teachers, as well as familiar comedy faces Lee Han-wi (To the Beautiful You, Wild Romance) and Park Hae-mi (Smile Dong-hae, Unstoppable High Kick).

    Oohlala Spouses is reportedly still in talks over whether to extend by two episodes or not, but in any case that doesn’t seem to affect the premiere of School 2013, which will kick off on December 3.

      Shot in an interview format, the cast members recall some of their own personal dreams and ambitions from their student days as well as divulging on some of their favorite memories from then. 

      School 2013 officially kicked off its shooting on November 3 at a high school in Gyeonggi-do’s Suwon. The first shoot was followed with a gosa ( a traditional good luck ceremony) as the cast and crew all wishes for good luck and safety as they shot the drama. 

      The drama’s production is aiming for a realistic portrayal of school life in Korea and the drama’s homepage is even asking current students to share some of their stories on their school life- both good and bad- with some of them being planned to be incorporated into the drama’s story line. 

      A drama production source shared, “We are pleased with the positive reaction to the first teaser and the staff and actors all have been working hard from the first day. Just as audiences are expecting, we are looking to portray an entirely different school story so we ask for your continued anticipation.”

      Lee Jong Seok has gone back to high school as a boy thoroughly bored with his classes.

      In the upcoming KBS2 drama School 2013, Lee Jong Seok will be playing the high school student Go Nam Soon. In the stills released on November 7 for the drama, he was portrayed as an 18-year-old having a hard time in school.

      Go Nam Soon works at night and aims to quietly graduate high school without any goals of his own. The stills, however, show that his school life will start to get interesting as he gets involved in an unexpected case.

      He will act as a representative for the high school students through his role and speak for them in his character′s voice.

      A source from the drama said, "Lee Jong Seok has been burning with passion in order to depict the students of today and say what they would want to say. You can look forward to seeing a different Lee Jong Seok through Go Nam Soon."

      School 2013 will air its first episode on December 3.

      2012-11-08 16:45  l   CJ E&M enewsWorld Grace Danbi Hong

      Touring the set of School 2013

      by javabeans | November 8, 2012 | 

      We’ve got a bunch more stills of the cast of School 2013, some from the show proper and some that peek behind the scenes, along with a relationship chart that lays out all the future connections.

      That means school uniforms galore, and a closer look at some of our leads, starting withLee Jong-seok as the main character of the students’ generation. He’s an ordinary student with no big goals for the future apart from graduating, who works as an errand boy at night and just plods through his daily life.
      But somehow, unexpected events pop up in his life—which happen to coincide with the arrival of a transfer student—and things start to get complicated. I love Lee Jong-seok, and I think he’s got a great shot at making this character relatable and heartfelt, much as he did in High Kick 3.

      Kim Woo-bin (below) is that new transfer student, taking on the familiar role of a rebellious student. The reason for his behavior will be more apparent to us than the other characters, I suspect, because he was made to give up his dream and come to this school. Based on the relationship chart below, he has an antagonistic relationship with Lee Jong-seok, but I’m anticipating that they’ll wind up better friends than enemies. (Crosses fingers madly. I need some rivals-overcome-boundaries-and-bond-as-bros action up in here.)
      It’s a character Kim Woo-bin is in danger of being typecast for—he already has White Christmas and A Gentleman’s Dignity under his belt—but I can see how he’s perfect for that characterization. And at 23 years old, this is probably the last of his high school roles anyway.

      A few more familiar faces crop up on the student part of the relationship chart, withKwak Jung-wook rejoining with Kim Woo-bin; he was also in White Christmas, though perhaps you recall him better as Maro in Shut Up: Flower Boy Band, the logical nerd friend in the rival band Strawberry Fields. In School 2013, he’ll clash with Kim Woo-bin.

      Also on the student roster is another 23-year-old (it’s a 1989-er party), Choi Chang-yub, who was most recently in Faith. I can barely recognize him, but I’m pretty sure he was one of the Suribang boys. In any case, he’ll be buddies with Lee Jong-seok.
      Then there’s Jang Nara in the teachers’ generation, although these stills have her wearing her high school uniform in what must be a flashback. My main question is, where does she hide her secretly aging portrait, or maybe the vials of unicorn blood she’s drinking to look so young? She’s 31, but looks just at home playing the student. It’s just not fair.
      In the chart, her character is listed as clashing with Daniel Choi, playing another teacher, which I just love. Because they’re going to end up falling for each other, right? You can’t cast them, set them up to bicker, and then NOT make ‘em fall for each other, can you?

      Also playing students are two girls with idol backgrounds: From 5dolls and T-ara, respectively, are Ryu Hyo-young and Dani, who play tour guides in the set of photos below, showing us around the set of the drama in between shoots.
      Dani isn’t shown on the chart and her tag bears her real name so she must be a pretty minor character, but Hyo-young has a spot and a character name, Kang-joo. Hyo-young sports a different look from her idol image, going short with the hair and light on the makeup to match her easygoing, tomboyish role. She’s listed as friend to both Lee Jong-seok and Park Se-young; those two friends have a loveline going, and so far in the student generation theirs is the only one listed. But being that we’ve got rivals and egos and hormones galore, I’m expecting a few more complications to crop up in the show.
      School 2013 is gearing up for its premiere, which will follow Oohlala Spouses on Mondays and Tuesdays. Its first episode airs December 3.
