Kim Soo-hyun cleans up for Dream High

In the little we’ve seen of Kim Soo-hyun in the new youth drama Dream High, all we’ve seen is his rural bumpkin character dressed up curiously like a homeless man — one lit up by Kim’s boyish charm, but a homeless man nonetheless. But thanks be, we’ll get to see him sporting a more kempt appearance soon, according to these new stills.

Below is how we’ve seen him thus far, sporting his homemade burlap-sack hoodie:

His character will soon leave his teeny hometown for the glitzier environs of Kirin Art School, and “starts to take off as a kkot-minam [pretty boy].” Korea does love their ugly-duckling stories; we’ll see another transformation occur with IU’s character, who was introduced as a cute, plump ragamuffin with the voice of a diva, and will eventually emerge from her cocoon looking more like the real IU.

Kim Soo-hyun’s new appearance can be seen in the drama’s 3rd episode, which airs next Monday, the 10th. His character falls for bratty Hye-mi (Suzy) and therefore needs no prodding to follow her back to Seoul to join up with the other new students at Kirin. However, Hye-mi isn’t quite as eager to receive his affection as he is to dole it out, and the first place she takes him to is the hair salon. After his makeover, even she’s stunned to see the hotness hidden underneath his shaggy hair and shabby clothes. (But we saw your value, Kim Soo-hyun! Your noonas had faith!)

I have no idea what happens after that, but man, I’d just LOVE to see Hye-mi stewing after she’s shown her disdain, only to have him become way more popular than she does (she’s entering the school handicapped by her horrid audition, which everyone witnessed firsthand). Sure, she’ll probably come around and soften up as the drama progresses — there’s nowhere for her to go but up, really — but just for a moment, it’ll be nice to savor the self-absorbed brat getting a taste of karma.

Adorable and gorgeous. This boy-man has also only one way to go in his career - up. Swooning after him doesn't make me feel as guilty as drooling over Yoo Seung Ho. Not that I've ever drooled over Yoo Seung Ho...

ICOMYM = Inappropriate Crushes On Much Younger Men.

I'm not calling myself noona, JB, makes me sound so old and over eagerly but I do have faith in you KSH.

I watch DH because of him and I would love to see HM in-your-face moment. I love HM's character though, don't know why when she asked Mr. Emperor (Jung) 'Please save me' awww...I loved her.

ohhh but he's so cute as a bumpkin!!

i'm going to enjoy him chasing hyemi around like an EXTREMELY CUTE puppy.

i think he'll be the one to put her into her place.. this will make for some good bickering.. and some caving in on both sides leading to really sweet moments. CAN'T WAIT!!

There's only one reason why I'm watching DH...and it's for Kim Soo Hyun. He's just too adorable (the fact that he has loads of acting talent and charisma doesn't hurt either) and I can't wait to see more of him. I'm so glad though that he is finally a lead in a drama!

totally baby-faced! I've been thinking he was about 19 years old until I found out he should be about 22 right now! And he even looks abt 16-17 in some of the pics!

I can't wait till he gets more screen-time.

Dream High really makes us wait for their star to grace the screen right?? I mean the PD probably new he is the ACE of the show.. that's why in the 2 eps that aired.. his screen time is very limited.

That's a strategy that could mean ratings gold for them next week, when his character gains the focus of the show. Smart alecks...

The uglifying of Kim Soo-yun is similar to America Ferrera's in Ugly Betty in that THEY ARE STILL PRETTY GOOD-LOOKING even with ridic clothes and doofy hair.

He's Just so Cute.... I mean, I loved him in WISFC and now he's just so adorable. He has the look of an actor, a real and genuine one. I wish him all the best, though I don't trust this TV show AT ALL. No offense team Taec, but I've seen him in Cinderella's Sister and, as most of you share the same sentiments - all of you, DONT LIE TO YOURSELVES-, realized that pretty boys with good dancing skills cannot act.

I really like his cute country boy image too! But his Seoul boy image is just too TEMPTING!!!
He is like the older version of Key, but he is younger looking and has a less sharper face!
In Conclusion, I FREAKIN LOVE HIM!!!! ahhhh!!! cant wait for episode 3!!!

I just watched episode one of DH last night and, needless to say, I can't wait to see someone with real acting chops on screen. Boy am I happy it's going to be Kim Soo-hyun! Doesn't hurt that he's actually 22, so I don't feel TOO bad about my massive noona crush on him. *__*

I'm pretty sure he's going to be the scene-stealer in this drama, and maybe it'll pave the way for an adult leading role in the future. *Swoons after imagining KSH in a suit*

actually, i don't dislike suzy's character. She's bitchy, yeah, but I don't think excessively so. Everyone she's blown up at has deserved it, for the most part. Except for the big blow out with her ex-friend, but even there she was partially right; why should she have to fail if her friend failed?
