The first round of open auditions have been completed for writer Song Ji-nah‘s anticipated new campus drama What’s Up, and a list of the lucky applicants who passed to the next round has been revealed online on the audition webpage. The production still has a ways to go because there were 200 hopefuls who survived the first round; that number was pared down from an overwhelming number of overall aspirants — more than 10,000 showed up and participated.
The drama takes place in the musical department of a university and will begin filming in March. The main cast has already been selected; see initial group photos below.
They are, in order of the photo directly below: musical actor Jo Jung-seok, Hon‘s breakout star Im Joo-eun, Big Bang’s Daesung, Tamra the Island‘s Im Joo-hwan, former child actor Jeon Hye-jin, and model Lee Soo-hyuk.
