Welcome back, DramaSpot readers!
This week I am recommending the sequel to the hit, Dream High: Dream High 2.
Starring Kang So Ra, Jung Jin Woon, Park Ji Yeon, Kim Jung Tae, Choi Yeo Jin, Park Jin Young, Kim Hyo Jung, and Lee Ye Jin.
Written by Heo Sung Hye and Jang Eun Mi, this 16 episode series aired in 2012.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.
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.
