Dream High depicts a story of students at the prestigious music high school, Kirin Art High School. Go Hye Mi (Bae Su Ji) is a singer whose family was once rich but has been facing economic difficulties. Hye Mi auditions to Kirin Art High School, but is rejected once her best friend, Yoon Baek Hee (Ham Eun Jong) is accepted. Wanting to follow the girl he likes, Song Sam Dong (Kim Soo Hyun) has an interest in both Hye Mi and music but is dealing with a hearing impairment. Similarly, Jin Guk (Ok Taec Yeon), is Hye Mi’s childhood friend and a talented rapper in a small K-Pop band. In the end, though there can only be one K-Pop star, but who will it be?

Dream High has a star-studded cast of actual K-Pop stars. Similar to the movie Fame it has a similar feel of what the lives of young talent are forced to face and how challenging the entertainment world can be. Personally, I am a fan of musicals, so having a show featuring singers and actually singing songs interests me a bit. Overall this seems like an amazing drama for K-Pop fans, and an easy bridge for those fans to cross over from Pop to Drama’s.

Do Min Joon (Kim Soo Hyun) is an alien that crash landed in South Korea over 400 years ago. He has special abilities that give him advanced: hearing, sight, and an ability to heal. As he observes humans he continues to feel superior to them. Until he meets Cheon Song Yi (Jeon Ji Hyun), a Korean drama star and becomes Min Joon’s neighbor! Slowly Min Joon starts to fall for Song Yi’s looks and personality.

This was one of the most talked about dramas when it first came out. Filled with fantasy and ‘other-worldly’ romance it will be a tear-jerking romance to watch and experience. Both Soo Hyun and Ji Hyun are a good looking couple and there is a certain chemisty between the two that carry the intense love story.
