Youth drama Sassy, Go Go’s cheery posters

For a boarding school full of over-achieving stress cases, everyone sure looks bright-eyed and cheerful. Posters are out for KBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Sassy Go Go, about an unlikely group of friends (and frenemies?) formed through the cheerleading club at a high school. Maybe the drama’s posters are meant to be aspirational, for how much happier our characters will be once they learn to take a break from studying to be cheerleaders? I don’t know, the plot doesn’t make much sense to me either, but it sure looks cute.

Jung Eun-ji stars as a once-popular girl who transfers to this new school and finds that here, all things are judged on academic performance. Her grades aren’t so great, and she becomes the troublemaker and thorn in everyone’s side. Lee Won-geun is the top student and her love interest, and Chae Soo-bin is her prickly roommate who seems like she’s so tightly wound that she’ll snap at a moment’s notice.

Overbearing parents are a given for most of these characters, but Ji-soo will be an especially troubled kid with anger issues because of his oppressive father. And finally, VIXX’s N will be Jung Eun-ji’s good-natured friend who follows her wherever she goes.

The latest teaser is pretty much the same story we’ve seen in previous versions: Jung Eun-ji is the outcast at the prestigious school where snobby parents and corrupt principals rig the system from the start. All she wants to do is dance, but is told that her club will be shut down. The solution will involve merging the dance and cheerleading clubs, which will mean that the school’s elite and the riffraff will suddenly have to get along.

I dunno, this school sounds thoroughly unpleasant (even if Ji-soo goes there!), mostly because living at high school is just about the only thing to make high school sound worse. But roommate antics will probably be fun for the drama, and if Jung Eun-ji’s character is half as sassy as she was in Answer Me 1997, I’ll be happy.

Sassy Go Go premieres Monday, October 5.

As long as we've got Eun Ji, singing, dancing, cheering, or talking trash to a bad guy every episode, I'm good to go.

Aw they look so bright, hoping for less suffering and more "cheering"...

But wait, isn't Kim Yoo-jung's upcoming drama where she plays a cheerleader also from KBS on Mon-Tues and will be or should've been premiered this week?

Yes, she was courted for this drama. But she couldn't(didn't) do it. Now we have eun-ji replacing her.

Lee Won-geun? Is he the one from Hyde Jekyll Me? If he is, indeed, the one... He is the only reason for me to check this out. He looks really cheeky and charming, like a true naïve youth. That's the plug of his charisma. Love him so!

(Look at his smile! Dude I hope I am right with names. But I am referring to the lead guy with a bright smile there!)

I honestly don't find the drama's premise weird as long as it shows high school in a fun way.

I'm not sure why so many keep talking about high school like it was a nightmare. I didn't hate that part of my life personally. Also, it's not only about bullying and negatives like most HS dramas like to show recently. It's also about finding yourself and your dreams and all those long lasting friendships along the way. Dream High was the last kdrama that managed to brilliantly capture that. I'll be thrilled if this is half as good!

It depends on where you went to high school. For some kids, even if they wanted to just enjoy high school and be teenagers, it's next to impossible because of the academic pressures.

(at least everyone can agree bullying is wrong, but where I'm from, no one sees anything wrong with pressurising kids to get higher and higher marks at the expense of everything else. There's a reason why suicide rates spike during exam season....)

and I hope that this drama explores a little bit of that instead of painting bullying as the main and only evil kids face in school.

So many people talk about high school as a nightmare because it was. It's like prison. Sure, you might remember the card games and the cool cellmates and that time you got that awesome prison tattoo, but at the end of the day, it was still an oppressive, intellectually stifling hellhole, and you still spent four years locked in with a herd of judgmental, shallow, hormonal sheep. If you're the slightest bit different--if you're weird, poor, ugly, fat, smart, gay, just plain different, good luck.

High school was actually pretty fun for me, so I guess it really depends on where you went to school (Philippines, and the fact that we went to high school at age 13-16 in our time). I know there were frustrations, there were times when we acted out and times when we wanted to slam our heads against the wall, but the memories that stand out for me are fun times with friends, watching cute guys, and the thrill of competing and winning since our school was big on extra-curricular activities. Also our gang was basically a misfit brigade, so yeah.

Totally agree with @Mandy!
High School was the time I found (and started to like) myself! I met my best friend and a lot of precious friends.

awww I like the look of this - the cast is pretty solid (at least I can speak for Jun Eun-ji, Lee Won-geun, Chae Soo-bin and Ji-soo). Now here's hoping the script is good too.

This might not have very high ratings but I do hope it gets the actors some attention of the good kind.

As long as this is fun and not too melodramatic (like Heirs for example) I'm sure I'll enjoy it even if the plot is not very original or interesting. I guess I've been corrupted by K-pop because I'm really excited to see N in a drama. Also love Eun Ji and Ji Soo.

Ji Soo looks soooooo good in the photos, I cannot wait to see him look happy! I love Bokdong but gosh, I don't want to get my heartbroken just yet.

I really like the look of this drama, and I hope this is the one that'll lift my drama drought. Hehe.
