Daniel Choi, Kim Woo-bin confirmed for School

Adorable! Daniel Choi is joining the remake of 1990s youth drama School, which is now going by the name (still a working title) 2013 School.

That means he’s reteaming with Jang Nara, which I love because they were so adorable and sweet together in Baby-Faced Beauty. Sure, I did wish for more spine and affection from her since he was always the one making the overtures, but he was so damn cute about it that I can’t help but be excited about their reunion here. While that drama didn’t give them much in the way of sweeping romance, they did have a way with bickering charm that hit a nice balance of light-heartedness and masked flirting (well, on his end. Which is why it was so fun to watch).

It’ll be fun to watch these two engage in a wholly new dynamic for School, though, because his character is completely different from the adorkable whiny-brat-turned-maturing-adult he played in Baby-Faced Beauty. Here he’ll project a gentle manner, competent skills, and classy looks as language teacher Kang Se-chan, who’s wildly popular with both students and parents. Se-chan is described as both a straight-shooter and a glib speaker, which seems like total opposites but which I can actually see him pulling off. Daniel Choi does have a way with line deliveries.


Kim Woo-bin, Hyo-young

As for the rest of the cast: Kim Woo-bin (A Gentleman’s Dignity, White Christmas) has confirmed, yay! I’m a little nervous about the statement by a rep saying, “Compared with Lee Jong-seok who has already been cast, there’s a bigger likelihood that Kim Woo-bin will play the rebel student.” Because I’m thinking, You don’t know yet? You’re casting people before you have roles for them?!

But… I’m determined to think positively because I so much want for 2013 School to be a good show. Please be a good show!

Meanwhile, idol star Hyo-young of 5dolls, sister to former T-ara member Hwa-young, is the latest name being offered up as a potential cast member. Nothing’s confirmed yet but they’re reportedly in negotiations and official word should be out in another day (so it sounds pretty settled for her). If she ends up signing on, Hyo-young’s role will not be a main one; she’d be one of the supporting characters.

Lee Yubi of Nice Guy, however, will not be joining the drama due to scheduling conflicts.

2013 School will follow Oohlala Spouses on Mondays and Tuesdays and will air beginning in December.

This is the first time I heard of a repeated pairing, for korean drama. Is there any other examples for this kind of situation? I kind of have this idea that korean drama never do repeated casting for their OTP somehow. Anyway, I like Daniel Choi and Jang Nara in Babyface beauty..I look forward to see them again together in this!

Oh no I guess Choco Pie will not be going to school after all :( she's such a cute actress I'd like to see her in more things after Nice Guy.

I hope DC doesn't get paired up with JN cause I didn't sense any chemistry in BFB.

Ok, I am slightly sad that I won't be seeing my Woo-bin & Yubi couple again, but still looking forward to the show nonetheless. I mean, the people behind this did Dream High right? and that was pretty fun and cracktastic.

Woohoo !!! is all I can say ! Love both men.

But, doesn't Kim Woo-bin play rebel student too many times ? I hope he doesn't get stereotyped. But, I'll take him whenever I can. :D I really hope he has significant screen time here.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! I like my favorite actors being on tv so much.

Also, 2013 School better be a working title. Cuz I read it and think "future school"? Just your basic teenager problems and tryna get your parents to buy you the newest hover car...

I’m a little nervous about the statement by a rep saying, “Compared with Lee Jongk-seo who has already been cast, there’s a bigger likelihood that Kim Woo-bin will play the rebel student.” Because I’m thinking, You don’t know yet? You’re casting people before you have roles for them?!

maybe that just means that they originally cast Lee Jongk-seo as the rebel but then Kim Woo Bin came along and they thought he fit the role better and liked his portrayal more so gave him, Kim Woo Bin the rebel role, and moved Lee Jongk-seo to the role they originally cast Kim Woo Bin for.

I read it was to do more with the teachers than the student story wise. While nothing been said if JN and Choi being a pair, or the leads for that matter, it seems to much to resist for the writers it is after all made by the same company that made BFB and the pair made that a hit for them

Babyface Beauty re-team= ♥♥♥♥♥♥. One of the cutest rom-coms of the last years. Love Daniel Choi. Will we have a Jekill/Hyde teacher? Assy with the troublemakers and puppy *wrapped you around my fingers* with the girls?

Straight-shooter and glib speaker? It's somebody who formulates criticism in such a way, that you want to hear more and more of it, even if it concerns you. Language teachers sometimes can do things like that ;), and even if a student fails a semester, he/she still comes running to your classes, just for the pleasure of listening to the teacher. I hope I will get it delivered by Daniel Choi - his stunt in Ghost makes me very optimistic about this role.

Hwayoung getting kicked out of T-ARA was probably the best thing that could have happened for her sister's career since Hoyoung had almost no career sitting stagnant in 5 Dolls. But then Hwayoung gets kicked out, and everyone starts wondering, "what about Hyoyoung". Lol. Good for her, even if it's a small role. Better than doing nothing like she has all year.

I really have no comment on Daniel Choi, since I've never seen any of his dramas. Hmmm.

... And I was getting super excited that Kim Woo Bin and Lee Yoo Bi were getting paired up again for School. They were the best part of the whole entire Vampire Idol sitcom. Nevertheless, I do like the actors/actresses that have been casted so far.. with the exception of Hyo Young. I haven't seen her act before, but I don't particularly like her as a singer.

Yay for Daniel Choi and an even bigger YAY for Kim Woo-bin!

I'm sad that Yubi won't be in it. She's such a cutie.

But since we are looking for a female lead now, can we get Jung Eun-ji to play a transfer student from Busan who rounds up the troublemaker boys and makes them into her underlings, striking terror into the hearts of teachers and parents?

I think they just grabbed Jang Nara as soon as she was free and worried about the details of story and cast later. She always so busy after all.
