High School King of Savvy fakes it till he makes it

I love the teasers for this show. I know other tvN dramas have taken to doing these totally nonsensical dance teasers, but the ones for High School King of Savvy are so adorable. Leads Seo In-gook and Lee Hana do this awesomely dorky jig that cracks me up. I hope the show is this goofy, though maybe that’s a given when your drama is about an eighteen-year-old who leads a double life as his office executive brother and a high school hockey star?

Seo In-gook plays both brothers, who are nine years apart in age but remarkably alike in appearance. Hyung is the cold, logical, successful one, and Little Bro is the competitive hothead who’s more jock than brains. Their parents died when Hyung was eighteen, and when he had the chance to go study abroad, Hyung left Little Bro all alone. What he doesn’t know is that Hyung has spent his life devoted to getting revenge for the people who drove his father to suicide, causing Mom’s subsequent death from shock.

That’s the backstory, but we’ll watch the drama from Little Bro’s perspective, as he gets a mysterious phone call from Hyung on the day that he was set to return to Korea to begin his brand new office job. He’s told to go impersonate Hyung at the office as a matter of life and death, and so with no other choice but to take the scary but vague threat seriously, he ditches school to go play the new boss, and then gets stuck living a double life.

I totally didn’t expect this show to even come up with that amount of motivation behind the masquerade, but hey, it’s better than Hyung just being absent or lazy. I’ll be watching for the fish-out-of-water fun and the crazy shuttling back and forth between the hero’s real life as a teen star athlete with his own posse of fangirls, and his fake life as a manager who’s supposed to be brilliant. That and inappropriate workplace romance, of course.

High School King of Savvy follows Witch’s Romance and premieres on June 16.

In that slightly extended version of the dancing clip, In-guk totally does the Love Song body roll. And Hana steps forward to do a bit of Kai moves from Overdose — I die from the cute.

In the last photo, Seo In-gook's sporting a mighty fine what-are-you-waiting-for-come-and-get-me look. Very sexy.

I know! I had to mentally backtrack like 'no no he's supposed to be a high-schooler here'

How can SIG look alternately adorkable and sexy come-hither at the same time??

Whoa, I didn't expect this backstory at all. Now I'm even more excited. That dancing is so cute. Both Inguk and Lee Hana, I think I'll love their chemistry. I hope this drama will not disappoint me because all the teasers are totally awesome. And I love Seo Inguk. So sexy, hot, and cute at the same time.

Oh my gosh, I need this in my life STAT.

These teasers are adorable. <3 Luckily it's a TVN drama so I have reasonably confidence that the show won't dive off a cliff of crazy and lose all the awesome material it has to work with.

LOL. The dance teasers cracked me up, too ! Especially Lee Hana, she's so dorky. I wonder how many takes they needed to film this, 'cause I couldn't imagine anyone NOT bursting into laughter. :D

Seo In-gook seems like he'd be a fun person to be around. The unni's that get to work with him are probably enjoying it to the max.

At the moment I'm just impressed that they put him in a school uniform and he actually looks 18; put him in an office attire and he looks like he is an office exec in his late 20's. What kinda sorcery...

I LOVE those teasers! TvN does a wonderful job of thinking outside the box.

I dunno if it's only me but the female lead in the teaser reminds of the characters of the Toca Boca apps my kids request to work for in tx.

Don't know why Lee Hana isn't a bigger star (she's gorgeous).

And Mr. Androgynous still freaks me out.

Oh man...it's partly a revenge drama!

Well, let's hope they keep this more on the light/hilarious/fish out of water side. But at least the backstory does give it a little more meat.

It sort of reminds me of She's The Man!

I really hope this show doesn't end up like that other I was excited about for weeks but ended up making me sad because it was so disappointing. You know, that show that starts with a 'You're' and ends with an 'All Surrounded'. This will be my first time watching SIG in a lead role, still haven't gotten round to Reply 97, and since he was one half of my most favourite couple in Master's Sun, I'm positive I'm going to love him. Gambare show! You can do it.

Whoa, you haven't watched Answer Me 1997? And I thought that this show is so popular so most of K-drama fans already watch it. Well, you should try to watch it. The show was so awesome and Seo Inguk was great in it. He was way better in AM97 than in Master's Sun in my opinion, for a simple reason, because he was the lead.

ummmm innocent jig my ASS. Seo In-gook was going for full Magic Mike there for a second.

Not that I'm objecting to that in any way, to be clear.

Um any chance of getting Lee Soo Hyuk to do that jiggy dance? 'Cause that would be off-the-top hilarious. Love the looks of this drama already!
