Kim Soo-hyun cries for Dream High

[SPOILERS AHEAD. YOU ARE WARNED.]

Kim Soo-hyun, who plays country-bumpkin-with-the-voice-of-an-idol Song Sam-dong in KBS’s Dream High, is looking mighty melancholy in the newest stills released from the production, which come from an upcoming episode (Monday’s Episode 10).

One only need scroll down to the other set of stills to guess why. At least that’s the assumption I’m making, because the episode reportedly marks a turning point for the Sam-dong character, who sheds his role of faithful-protector-standing-in-the-shadows and “comes back a tough guy,” complete with new short haircut.

The upcoming school trip to Japan allows for the date between Hye-mi (Suzy) and Jin-gook (Taecyeon), pictured below, and when Sam-dong witnesses the cozy scene, he makes the vow to become a top star.

Sounds like the story’s finally gonna give him some meaty material to work with — not that I haven’t been fully loving the Hye-mi/Jin-gook/Baek-hee stories, but it’s been a damn crying shame that a fantastic actor like Kim Soo-hyun (the cast’s best actor by far) has been so underutilized thus far. But I have really appreciated the way the drama has been taking the characters and giving them lots of growth and reversals, such as Hye-mi’s development from spoiled brat into a (gasp!) sympathetic character, and Pil-sook’s awesome independence from her Jason crush. Can’t wait for the new chapter in the stories.

GASP! I LIKE HIS HAIR THE WAY IT IS TT____TT wait is this his new hair? I can't really tell.... anyways, he's so cuteeee :) and Dream High is really a case of the underdogs winning and even though the acting isn't top-notch or the production superb, somehow it makes you smile and root for it all the way.

I'm still rooting for Sam-dong! When I saw the preview at the end of the last episode, I was shocked. I'm hoping that he's K!

KSH is such a great young actor
Like dramabeans have said, he is really underutilised, he is the only real actor in the kirin high school, eun jung was a child actor but taec sucks alot (very stiff still and its already the ninth ep)

Cant wait until the scripts develop
I wonder whether the group will split
It feels like the group has separated cos, jin guk is part of the group k,

pil sook has gotten over her complex with jason and has lost weight giving her more confidence

and now sam dong will fly further to win his one true love (or first love)

and remember, the half admission class is now part of the kirin school as they have passed with enough points at the dance of the year competition

anyway go sam dong, no soo hyun

*sigh. Allkpop already spoiled this for me. Bu I'm glad Kim Soo-hyun will get more to work with. And Sam-dong does need to amp it up if he wants Hyemi - though, as with Pilsook, I hope it's his own dream that drives him to the top, not a high school crush.

That is my hope too!

they haven't been doing much with Samdong's character as they've done with the others, so it would be nice for the writers to give him more depth and give KSH more to work with.

Ugh, I was so pissed when Allkpop spoiled it for me. They were like "Warning Spoiler! But we're going to show the picture of them kissing anyway!"

Ugh, that aside. I'm just rooting for Sam Dong now. Taec's acting isn't allowing me to like his character at all. And now we have this kiss scene, all hope seems lost for hyemi and Samdong. So, for the better future of Sam Dong! <3

Ah yes, he's looking hot! But all casts are pretty~~

I'm excited with the upcoming episodes! TONIGHT!! :P

Random : it's kinda ironic that in the real life seems Suzy is so smitten to Kim Soo Hyun, and she's more like dongsaeng-oppa with Taec.
And how Wooyoung once said he wanted to do a kiss scene with IU.
( oh don't tell me I'm obsessed with DH. I'm not. REALLY! )

Le sigh. Look at Sam-dong looking so beautiful and sad and beautiful. I was all chill about this show, loving everyone but shipping no one (or so I thought), and I was happy. But now I'm feeling utterly heartbroken on behalf of uri yeppeo Sam-dongie. I guess I was actually shipping him and Hye-mi all along. Huh. Oh well, I'm looking forward to watching Sam-dong's transformation, whatever it is! We all know Kim Soo-hyun is going to knock our socks off with his acting.
And like everyone else here, I think that that second picture of him? Is gorgeous.

Thanks for the spoilers. :D

This just makes me so sad. I still hope Hye-mi and Sam-dong end up together. I hope the kiss just causes him to back off a little and this transformation gives Hye-mi a chance to see him differently.

I'm think I'm going to have to avoid Dream High until Thursday. This semester is a lot more work than I thought it would be... Hopefully All-kpop doesn't spoil anything more for me.

FINALLY!! It's about time for this musical genius to show his genius. He'd been such a Hyemi-puppy lately that I'd forgotten entirely why he'd been recruited to Kirin in the first place. I hope they'll show him churning out madly one fantastic song after another.

oh nooos.. poor Sam-dong ah... i am so torn between these two boys for HyeMi but recently i'm just hating on Jingook so much which is why i suddenly jumped ship to SamMi (who when together is just AWESOME btw)... although it seems less and less likely that samdong and hyemi will end up together.. the jingook-hyemi love story's following the formulaic kdrama otp story more (first love, first kiss, hug in the middle of the street, backhug etc)... but still crossing my fingers on this one.

and.. yay for more awesomeness (if samdong's new 'do isn't awesome enough for you)!

Argh X_X' I mean, everything kept pointing toward Jin-gook, and it was obvious that she liked him, etc., but...! D: I think Hye-mi should be with Sam-dong, too ^^ Maybe they'll do a Queen of Reversals turn and make it happen? =D I kind of doubt it, though...but Jin-gook would have had Baek-hee to comfort him, Sam-dong doesn't have anyone @[email protected]~

And what the heck happened to Jin-gook's friend? XD He just kind of stopped playing a part O_O' Also, Suzy only being 16 always shocks me XD Everyone else is older than her!

Well, but it looks as though things have already been decided X_X'

I was wondering for quite sometime now WHY don't they give him meat to chew? Is there someone in the production try to block his light? It's so obvious that his acting is the best among the idols, LOL. Sorry, no offense to anyone, I felt the production try to push for JG since day 1...the harder they push (lots of screen times) , with his limited acting skill, the further I step back from him, to the point that when he appeared on screen I literally *sign*

I love this turning point, with HM or not, give us solid storyline for SD with good ending for the boy, I would be satisfied. And for JG, pls pls less brooding/crying and show us how strong you are to protect the girl you love.

I completely agree with you. It's not that I disliked JG, but I also really felt like production was trying too hard to push him down viewer's throats. I guess that's affected how I feel about his character recently... :\ Personally, I'm over his brooding and daddy issues (although that last stunt pulled by his father was low!).

I enjoy both boys fighting for HM's attention, but at the end of the day, I can't help but lean towards SD. Even if he doesn't get together with HM, I'm really excited to see what's in store for his character in the future.

I'll be OK if he doesn't get the girl, because in my own version of extended Dream High episodes, he become a famous singer, then have a concert in Australia, get lost on his way back to the airport to finally meet me by accident ;D

Btw sometime ago, my friends and I met someone that looked a lot like Lee Seung Gi in the city, we tried to take a picture of him secretly (failed because otherwise it would be too obvious), we were almost hysterical it's embarrassing.. After that we try to imagine how hectic will it be if we really came across someone famous from korea! (probably passed out from the excitement, or jailed for kidnapping)
