CHARACTERS' DESCRIPTIONS (credits to innolife)

Role of Yoon Seol-Chan (Yong Joon-Hyeong)
He is the vocalist of Man in Black, a Korean 6-member boy group. He is abrasive, chic and his words often stabs others heart. Of course, he doesn’t regret that. He is an idol who lives by fans’ love, but he has no mind to put away his self-respect for fans. He is a hot idol and his family is rich, so there is no weak point to him and he is always confident. When fanatic fans bothered him, he could not bear, so he is misunderstood as hitting fans. Because of his agency’s order that he should do model school life, he goes to school but cannot adapt to school. To such Seol-Chan, Sey is interesting. She is a girl who doesn’t know his songs at all and has stories as much as him.

Role of Min Sey (Ha Yeon-Soo)
She is a transfer student who came to Bukchon High school from New Zealand. She seems pure and kind, but has tenacity of purpose. She is usually indifferent, but has a sharp edge clearly to someone who is sharp. She is quiet as her closed mind, and tells calmly the word only she has to say without flowery words. The day she first came to 2nd class in Bukchon High school 2nd grade, she met Yoon Seol-Chan in bad luck. With such Seol-Chan, one day she became sit together. She is busy to adapt to school, deal with a bad boy and fight thinking about mom. What’s this?

Role of Jeong Seon-Woo (Gang Ha-Neul)
He has a natural charisma that can make other feel oppressed with a word. He plays cello in All For One, a famous club in Bukchon High school, but he is good at playing other instrument. He sings very well but does not want to show off. He is a young master from a distinguished novel family. His parents want him to be a doctor and he was sure that his dream is the same. However, an event that causes a crack in his mind happened. The girl transferred. Seon-Woo recognized the girl who is from New Zealand at a glance; Min Sey. Sey is the same class when they were 5th grade at elementary school, and he remembers that she was a pure girl who sings well. He liked her clear ringing voice, pure face and bright, sometimes whimsical behavior. It was jus a feeling of a boy in 5th grade. However…

Role of Han Ji-Woong (Ahn Nae-Sang)
He is a cold, chic man whose heart is frozen as hard as ice. He is like the lonely wind blowing in mountain Himalaya topped with snow. Once he was a famous composer and session musician, but now he lives shutting up from the world. One day, monsters descended on his house. These cheeky monsters were seeking at his warehouse. He got mad and kicked them out, but before he knew, they occupied his warehouse again. Finally, he gave up.

Role of Park Gyoo-Dong (Gang Il-Sik)
He is a pet in the class who has charming voice and cute appearance. However, the classmates bully him. They play and harass him easily, and send him on an errand, treating him as a younger boy. Always he says ‘Ok’, ‘I’m fine’, so everyone thinks that Gyoo-Dong is really OK.

Role of Kim Nana (Da-Hee)
She is the bad student who is famous in Bukchon High school. She was raised by her father’s second mistress who is from tenpro hostess. Therefore, she was listed on neither her farther nor mother family register, and lived with her maternal grandmother. Unlike her mother who is indifferent to Nana, her father is special to her. Because when she has a problem, he behaves enthusiastically. Of course, the way is little bit excessive. Therefore, there is nothing Nana fears.


"Monstar" depicts the lives of ordinary teens who are injured psychologically and heal themselves through the power of music.

Yoon Sul-Chan (Yong Joon-Hyung) is the vocalist for the group "Man in Black". He carries deep wounds within his mind, but doesn't express his feelings. Because of his hot temper, he causes trouble. His management company then orders him to carry himself as an ideal student. He joins a music band at school, while facing unexpected events.

    Omg......... I stumbled onto this thread since I wanted to check out the upcoming dramas and I have to say, I am really impressed with the photos of the cast!
    I normally hate idols in dramas but I'm willing to give this one a try because of Ha Yeon Soo! She looks like a doll !!! And she does not look like she's in her 20s!!

    Will there be romance in this?
