Following the hit sensation before it, Dream High 2 follows a similar story line as before but focuses on new faces and talent. This time, Kirin Arts High School has been having financial difficulties and is soon to be bought by an elite company. In the nick of time a girl group, HershE, transfers to Kirin. Lian (Park Ji Yeon) is a talented actress, Nana (Kim Hyo Jung) is a talented singer, and  Ailee (Lee Ye Jin) is an airhead performer. In addition, Shin Hye Sung (Kang So Ra) has musical talents but strongly buts heads with rock star Jin Yoo Jin (Jung Jin Woon), but there is an underlying romance between the two ready to be released.

Dream High 2 has a similar story as in its predecessor. Featuring new talents, it’s another perfect drama for those who are K-Pop fans and want an easy bridge into the drama world. Similar to what I mentioned that I loved about Dream High, is that the drama features not only romance and a ‘coming of age’ story, it features talented stars who are able to show the range of their abilities.

Lee Jung Joo (Kang So Ra) has been hard at work her whole life and as a result becomes grouchy and pessimistic. After a series of unfortunate events, Jung Joo leaves the city of Seoul and moves to Jeju Island for a new start. Baek Geon Woo (Yoo Yun Suk) owns a restaurant called ‘Warm and Cozy’ on Jeju Island as a way to get away from his wealthy family. But when Jung Joo runs into Geon Woo, her first love, there is an unexpected meeting as the two clash with their polar opposite personalities. But will they start to build a romance as they continue to meet each other?

Jeju Island Gatsby by itself has a beautiful location on a quaint island resort. The two leads, Kang So Ra and Yoo Yun Suk, have an undeniable chemistry together and add to the mix the delicious food being served at ‘Warm and Cozy’ this is the perfect drama to watch on a spring afternoon with a nice breeze with some good food.
