Kim Yoo-jung offered leading role in School 2017

by girlfriday


Yay, I couldn’t be happier about this news! Casting has finally commenced on School 2017, the seventh installment of KBS’s high school drama franchise, and an offer has been made to Kim Yoo-jung (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) to headline. It seems like a no-brainer that she’d be their first choice, given that she’s one of dramaland’s biggest youth stars, and her last series Moonlight Drawn By Clouds was a huge hit for the network................





Jealousy, Rebel’s Kim Jung-hyun up for School 2017

by girlfriday


Ah, I love this kid. Okay, so he’s not actually a kid—he’s 27 years old, apparently—but he’s such a newbie in dramaland that I just see him as Gong Hyo-jin’s adorable kid brother in Jealousy Incarnate. Rookie actor Kim Jung-hyun (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) is the latest to receive a casting offer for KBS’s high school drama School 2017, alongside Kim Yoo-jung (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds), who’s up for the starring role; they’re both considering favorably for now.............

Kim Sejung cast as a lead role in 'School 2017'



Article: [Official] Kim Sejung confirmed for lead role in 'School 2017'.. 'anticipating her acting potential'

Source: Sports Chosun via Naver

1. [+7,167, -434] I like Sejung but this feels random...

2. [+4,706, -289] Surely she's not the "lead" lead but one of the many students, right?

3. [+3,576, -344] I'm a Sejung fan and hoped she would start with supporting roles rather than lead... but it's all confirmed now so I support her either way

4. [+2,427, -163] The way the 'School' series has always worked is they feature a variety of students and then start focusing on the students whose stories are the viewer favorites. Sejung's screentime in the drama will probably change according to her potential.

5. [+1,958, -421] I always thought she had acting potential after seeing her on SNL with IOI.. I don't know if it's lead worthy yet though.

6. [+466, -104] She was great on SNL... but why start off with a lead ㅠㅠ that's a lot of pressure. Anyway, I'll be watching the drama for sure.

7. [+313, -73] Wow Sejung fighting

8. [+382, -66] I was hoping to see her with Kim Yoo Jung after hearing that she was in the casting meeting too so I'm sad that Kim Yoo Jung is dropping out from the drama. I trust Sejung will do well!! I think she fits her character well ㅋㅋㅋ


Source: Nate

1. [+1,309, -34] This will either be a huge success or a huge fail for her ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1,020, -42] Quite the gamble

3. [+564, -13] A lead? Not a supporting role?

4. [+105, -4] Sejung's going to get some hate over this... a kid with no acting experience as the lead? She should've started with supporting roles. It'll be an opportunity if she does well but she should be prepared to get a ton of hate for the first time since her debut if this pans out poorly for her.

5. [+101, -8] "Potential" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ they cast their lead over "potential" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+90, -14] This will probably be a deciding factor in Kim Sejung's career... whether she rises to the sky or hits rock bottom

7. [+80, -3] I have a feeling her acting will be really exaggerated and over the top...

8. [+71, -3] A risky chance that she could ruin everything she's worked hard to build so far

Rookie actors Kim Jung Hyun & Jang Dong Yoon cast in 'School 2017'


Rookie actors Kim Jung Hyun and Jang Dong Yoon have been confirmed as the leads of KBS2's 'School 2017'!


They'll be working alongside Gugudan's Kim Se Jung, who was cast as the production's female lead earlier. Kim Jung Hyun will be playing the role of a rebellious high schooler Hyun Tae Woon, while Jang Dong Yoon will be in the role of a model student, Song Dae Hwi


Hyun Tae Woon is not only a rebellious character who got kicked out from his former school in the United States, but also the son of a wealthy sponsor of the school. Song Dae Hwi is a gentle student body president with talent in all areas, except that he wasn't born into an upper class family. 


In addition to Kim Se Jung, SF9's Rowoon was also cast as a part of the production. 'School 2017' will air after currently airing drama 'Fight My Way' in July. 





“School 2017” Confirms Male Leads Kim Jung Hyun and Jang Dong Yoon


KBS 2TV’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama, “School 2017,” has confirmed actors Kim Jung Hyunand Jang Dong Yoon as their male leads. They join gugudgan’s Kim Sejeong as part of the lead cast.

Kim Jung Hyun will play the role of Hyun Tae Woon, a reckless and rebellious high schooler who transfers to a Korean school after being kicked out of one in the U.S. It only takes him half a day and one kick with his “long legs” to rule the school, and it doesn’t hurt that his father is in investor in the school.

Jang Dong Yoon takes on the role of Song Dae Hwi, a seemingly perfect student who is good at everything and also protects the weak with his “righteous charisma.” He is also the school’s student president, so while it seems like he has everything, there is just one thing he doesn’t have – influential parents.

Kim Jung Hyun was most recently in “Rebel: Thief Who Stole The People” and “Dont’ Dare to Dream.” Jang Dong Yoon made his debut through the news, after receiving a model citizen award.” He was most recently in “Solomon’s Perjury.”

The drama will be directed by Park Jin Suk, who also led the dramas “Naked Firemen” and “The Tale of the Bookworm.”

It was also previously confirmed that SF9’s Rowoon was cast for this drama.

“School 2017” will air in July, after “Fight My Way” finishes its run.

 OMG! Jang Dong Yoon as male lead in school 2017! Let that sink in! I never watch high school themed dramas and only will do so if the story and writing is good, and acting is impressive as was the case with Solomon's Perjury.  If you've been to that thread, you'll see how much I'm impressed with Jang Dong Yoon (and  the rest of the cast, I wanted a sequel actually) I never left that thread watch it from start to finish. recap and all that

Seeing this news, I'm  a happy jongski. And then I see  Han Joo Wan from.. Kings Family.. I'm a happy happy jongski. I'll be honest, I'll be watching this for them and the acting. ( I've never watch previous school series - the one with Woo Bin, and Kim So Hyun) this will be the first time.  I hope the story is good! and well written.

@Go Seung Ji thanks! you made my day with this update. I actually saw my old tweet after Solomon Perjury ended and wished for either the cast to be in school 2017 or Reply series. I got my wish somehow with Jang Dong Yoon. I'll be here for the drama

PS:off topic but indulge please... I already said JDY deserve rookie ( in the Duel thread no less. YSJ is good but JDY....watch SP, you'll see why)

I'm hyper much at the moment. thanks for indulging. :)

Happy jongski! Another young actor from Solomon's Perjury in this drama! Seo Ji Hoon!  and with Jang Dong Yoon again! Plus Kim Hee Chan! I'm okay with the cast. These young actors I've watched their dramas and I know they have the acting skills.  Watch SP and you'll see what I mean. And they're not from any kpop group they're just young rookie actors. KHC probably the oldest and experienced among the young cast.


I'm sorry don't know who rowoon is and also not familiar with the female cast. But I'll be watching.
