Sam-dong’s coming back to the Dream High world! Kim Soo-hyun, who played country-bumpkin-turned-top-pop-star in the original drama series, is going to be making a cameo appearance in the first episode of Dream High 2.
The production must’ve gone into stealth mode to keep the cameo quiet, since it’s already been filmed. According to a source from the production company, they’d been so inundated with requests for appearances by Sam-dong that they’d decided to include it early on.
Kim Soo-hyun will be the first of a whole lineup of stars making cameos, according to the producers. I just hope they don’t devolve into a series of meaningless stunt castings, which I think the first series did a good job of avoiding; if they can work the cameos seamlessly into the plot, I’m all for them. I won’t say I’m not worried at all, though, since Season 2 seems to be generating a lot more hype and expectations than the first did. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t lose its heart amidst all the glitz and buzz.
Meanwhile, Kim Soo-hyun is very soon to make his first appearance on his currently running sageuk sensation The Moon That Embraces the Sun, with the childhood portion soon to come to a close as the adults gear up for showtime.
Dream High 2 premieres on January 30, which means he’ll be dominating airwaves that week with his cameo on Monday, then his drama (very likely) ruling Wednesday and Thursday. I’m pretty sure nobody’s complaining.
Meanwhile, the drama also released its last official poster, below:
