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.

Park Bong Pal (Ok Taec Yeon) has grown up with the abilities to see and is acting as an exorcist. As a university student, he uses his ability to make money to get rid of weak spirits. When he is called to a high school haunted by a ghost he meets Kim Hyun Ji (Kim So Hyun). Hyun Ji is a high school student who has no memory of her past life or how she died. Having roamed Korea for 5 years searching for answers, she finds that Bong Pal might be able to help her find them. Together the two fight ghosts and help them move on to the after-life.

This seems like such a fun and exciting drama to watch. Taec Yeon and So Hyun have such an amazing chemistry and are simply so funny to watch when they are together. At the same time, I am excited to see how a relationship develops between the two and find out what happened in Hyun Ji’s past and why she has been killed and why Bong Pal can see ghosts in the first place!
