Everybody confirms joining Sassy, Go Go, including Ji-soo

Oh thank goodness. I was really bummed for a minute there, when it seemed there was no space left in the cast of Sassy, Go Go for Ji-soo (Angry Mom), but he has now confirmed, as long as rest of the previously reported contenders.

It’s kind of anti-climactic to have a whole round of confirmations when everybody on the list was everyone we were expecting, but I won’t complain now that the cast list is in, which seems generally appealing. Jung Eun-ji (Trot Lovers) will be playing the lead character of a bright and popular high school cheerleader with terrible grades, and Lee Won-geun (Hyde, Jekyll, Me) takes up the main romantic role opposite her.

They’ll both be members of a dance club at school that’s mostly composed of students left behind by the competitive high school system, considered to be the “problem kids” of the school. Meanwhile, the kids in the cheerleading club are mostly the high-achieving ones who only join to build up their specs. So when the two clubs are merged, they’ll have to figure out how to deal with their “oil and water” dynamic and be one club. Sounds sort of like Monstar meets Bring It On, only Sassy, Go Go will move past the part where the two groups bicker and compete against each other and presumably give us one happily unified team in the end.

As reported previously, VIXX’s N will be playing a top student who’s never lost his number 1 ranking, though an added descriptor tells us his exceptional academic brain is paired with the mental age of a grade schooler, making him “a 4-D oddball.” I like that much better than the plain description when he was just a smartypants, since it sounds like it’ll allow for him to be cute and weird.

Chae Soo-bin (Spy) plays another high-performing student, who’s got her whole future mapped out for her by her ambitious mother. She joins the cheer team just to add to her list of achievements, then unexpectedly discovers she has a talent for it and undergoes a change. Heh.

Ji-soo, on the other hand, will be playing a different character than he was initially reported to be considering (hence the confusion; articles had announced he’d be the number 1 ranked brainiac). Instead, he’ll be a “mysterious top student” who harbors pain he can’t talk about, who’s part of the cheerleading club along with his fellow academic elites—and yet, he also suffers from extreme stress about his grades. Aw, don’t stress out, Ji-soo! Just cheer your blues away!

Sassy, Go Go will be a KBS Monday-Tuesday drama premiering on October 5.

This is like Heirs but on a cheerleading scale, instead of you know, being heirs.

I don't know what was worse. The fashion or the plot.

@jill at least Yoo Rachel had pretty clothes in Heirs....really chic and classy. Unlike Mr Ugly Sweaters.

but the music was awful, LOVE IIIIS THE MOOMEEENNNT can go and die in a fire. I got so sick of hearing it.

0

@pigsnout Her clothes weren't all that either, but the attitude of the character made them look classy. You have to have the right attitude to look good in some clothes.

The music, the plot, the english (with very rare exceptions), IDEK why I bothered watching this.

0

yeah it's Kim Ji-won who made the clothes look classy and natural on her instead of costumey. Her styling was perfect for the most part - the blunt fringe in her hair+the pink lipstick and subtle cateye liner was a great visual cue to set her character apart from the other girls.

too bad I really can't say the same of the boys. I mean, I know I only stuck around because the supporting cast was really good, literally everyone except LMH/PSH seemed like they had an interesting backstory/chemistry with costars.

Phew, so glad Jisoo is confirmed :D When reports came out that Jisoo was dropped for N...wow netizens went crazy with their rants. Going to watch this for Eunji and Jisoo!! Hopefully it will be an endearing high school drama (sort of like Dream High x Reply 1997). Can't wait for the first episode!

This premise reminds me a whole lot of 2010's (or was it 2011?) "Dream High", where there were a handful of them that were the ones who didn't perform up to snuff and were put into a differently ranked class.... then turned into the most awesome group of misfits ever =)))

Jung Eunji is one of the best singers in kpop, she has amazing talent. She's not one of those people who only get to become a celebrity for having the tight kind of looks.

Monstar is brought up not because the singing thing, but that the 'misfit' characters learn how to get along with each other -.-

I can see N playing the role just based on his personality. But i hope he brings his acting game on, because even if he is a perfect fit for the character, if he can't act it out naturallt it'll still be bad. /fingers crossed/

Huge vixx fan here.

His friendship with Eunji will be a highlight behind the scenes though. Those two together are like bickering siblings, i hope we see some of that on screen.

Ah. that explains N. I think he's supposed to be a good dancer. I'm not sure hos is his acting skills, though he seems to be a natural MC/host.

I like this new description of Ji Soo's character. It'd be perfect for him and I think he has the acting chops to excel in it. Haunted past is always good (like Lee Jong Suk's character in School 2013). I think I'll look forward to this. :D

I personally think Jisoo deserves a "bigger" role especially with his talent and rising star status. I feel like this drama is going to be very teen-romancey and I think Jisoo is past this and should be paired with other actors (instead of these singers trying to get acting experience). Sigh, I get it--some singers can act decently too, but compared to someone who has had the passion and diligence in practicing the art of acting their whole life, I think being able to act along other actor/actress peers would be great and extremely beneficial for him.

Other than that, Jisoo's character sounds like something to look forward to. <3
