High Kick 2 fills out its new cast


Shin Se-kyung, Seo Shin-ae, Daniel Choi

I wasn’t excited to hear about the upcoming Season 2 of family sitcom Unstoppable High Kick, which would cast an entirely new crop of actors (the only exception being veteran Lee Soon-jae, the grandpa of the original series, who will be in the second season as well).

But I may have to rethink it now that the rest of its cast has been announced, and among them are Thank You‘s precocious and adorable Seo Shin-ae, The World They Live In‘s endearing screw-up Daniel Choi, and up-and-comer Shin Se-kyung (most recently of Queen Seon-deok and Ogamdo).

The story has 19-year-old Shin Se-kyung and 10-year-old Seo Shin-ae playing sisters who, on account of their debt-ridden father, come to Seoul on the run. The two sisters enter Lee Soon-jae’s household as maids, while Daniel Choi plays Lee Soon-jae’s son.

Dad and Mom Kim Bo-seok, Oh Hyun-kyung

Aside from this plot twist, however, it seems like the rest of the format will echo the setup of the original High Kick, if not in cast members then at least in the structure of the family tree.

Lee Soon-jae once again plays the grandpa/patriarch, partnered by Kim Ja-ok, while Oh Hyun-kyung (First Wives Club) plays his daughter, who is married to Jung Bo-seok (La Dolce Vita). Daniel Choi is the younger, unmarried son.

Lee Soon-jae’s grandson (son to Oh Hyun-kyung and Kim Bo-seok), played by newcomer Yoon Shi-yoon, anchors the younger generation, which is filled out by his friend, played by 19-year-old pop singer AJ; 24-year-old ex-Sugar pop singer Hwang Jung-eum as a bright, smart character; and Julien Kang (Dream) as her friend.

Sound confusing? If you’ve seen the original High Kick, it’s probably not too hard visualizing the family relationships. If not, I’m sure it’ll all become clearer when Unstoppable High Kick Season 2 premieres on September 7.

I thought The World They Live in was decent...the only character I thought was absolutely awesome was Daniel Choi's. I think I might watch this just for him.

i became interested in shin sae kyung recently, when i was skimming episodes of queen seon duk. i thought she was doing a really good job. i love lee soon jae and kim ja ok. and daniel choi was wonderful in worlds within, along with eom ki joon. it does feel similar to the old high kick but i hope it'll be fresh and as good as the old one. i wonder if lee soon jae will still be playing a doctor? hahaha

I had to draw the family out in a family tree chart... since seeing it drawn out is much easier than reading -.-

But, I love the little girl! So cute in Thank You.

Also, Lee Soon-jae and Kim Ja-ok are one of my favorite older veteran actors. Kim Ja Ok is my mom's favorite actresses since she's always like the "Korean mother" ... she's so perfect in those roles and she seems like a real Korean mother~

The cast still isn't appealing to me. Nothing beats Kim Bum, Kim Hye sung, Jung Il Woo, Seo min jung and Shin ji. If High Kick 2 is as sucessful as the originally high kick then we can expect to see more high kick seasons afterwords.

high kick 2 is better than high kick 1, truly you shouldnt say or do some kind of conclusion without even trying or watching it, because you might bite your tongue in the end, although the ending of High Kick 2 is a little bit disturbing
