School 2017 gears up for July broadcast on KBS

According to the latest drama news, another season of the well-received School series is underway at KBS and now has a broadcast slot. School 2017 is slated to air sometime in July after the end of Park Seo-joon’s Third-rate My Way, which will follow currently airing drama The Perfect Wife in the Monday-Tuesday time slot. At this time, the production team is in the audition and casting phase, looking primarily for actors in their teens and early twenties to fill the new class of students.

The director for School 2017 will be PD Park Jin-seok, who has had experience directing sageuk drama special The Tale of the Bookworm and the four-part mini-mystery drama Naked Fireman. I haven’t watched The Tale of the Bookworm, but I do remember Naked Fireman being relatively enjoyable with an excellent bromance relationship included, so I’m hoping that aspect will carry through to School 2017 as well.

The School series began in 1999, and has had a history of highlighting a variety of important issues facing South Korea’s adolescents including the corrupt education system, teen suicide, corporeal punishment, academy and tutoring culture, and bullying. School 2013 was particularly emotionally wrenching in its portrayal of the deep friendship between Lee Jong-seok and Kim Woo-bin, which was complicated by violence and gang membership.

School has also been the starting point of many extremely successful acting careers. A few famous School graduates include Bae Doo-na, Jang Hyuk, Ha Ji-won, Gong Yoo, Im Soo-jung, Lee Dong-wook, and many others, which just makes me more excited to see who PD Park will choose in his cast to lead the next generation of School stars.

School 2017 will air on Mondays and Tuesdays in July.

I deeply hope that it follows School 2013 more than School 2015, that in my perception the last one was a disaster, not only in the matter of the romance, but of the history itself.

Here's the article gf wrote about it last September.

http://www.dramabeans.com/2016/09/school-2017-in-the-works-for-summer-broadcast-on-kbs/

Is it bad that I immediately remembered this? September was a long time ago. Well, it was published the day after my birthday. *as if that's an excuse.

There were some amazing casting suggestions.

My favs:
Shin Jae Ha - but I think he's busy
Chae So Bin - who might also be busy
Jung Da Bin - who isn't busy!!!
Kwak Dong Yeon - is he too big?
Kim Min Suk - my bae. Yassss! It would be his 2nd School and 3rd uniform project that I recall
D.O. - too old?
Jinyoung - either one is fine with me, but I lean towards Junior (Got7). Again too old?

New names:
Little brother from BoF. He's leaving the army soon!
And mean girl from S2015:WAY. I don't care that she was already in the series. I want to see her be nice.

Other dream casting?

KMS was in school but it was such a bit part and his career owes nothing to it, unlike the real graduates we mention along with the franchise. I want to see him get to really shine wait he can still get away with school uniforms.

We'll have to agree to disagree.

All your facts are logical. Something in me just feels that starring role in this vehicle would bust the door down, that the other dramas have nudge, nudge, nudged open. People know him but post School round 2, everyone would.

That's my less logical, passion fandom side.

Shin Jae Ha and Kwak Dong Yeon would be too much for my poor heart, I like the idea too much!

Kang Chan-hee and Seo Ji Hoon would also be a nice duo (it's SO HARD to me to forget ther story in Signal though).

I wish they go to the bromance route or a strong female friendship. Or even a male-female non-romantic dynamic! It would be awesome!

I like Chae Soo Bin, but I think she might be too big right now, but I would love to see Kang Min Ah and Jin Ji Hee on School.

The ONLY idol actor that I would want in this is Got7's Jinyoung who played the child version of Lee Min Ho in the Mermaid drama.

YES! Jinyoung would be a great idol actor pick for the School series - although I feel like he does angst better than romance and really would hope to see him in a drama that would be like that of School 2013's. This drama likely doesn't count as "acting" in so far as "idol promotional material," but Jinyoung also did a great job playing a villain in the webseries Dream Knight, and it would be so interesting if he could play an antihero role or a character that blurs the boundaries between good and bad. I would love to see him have another acting role that could further broaden his capabilities and really stretch his acting abilities as well.

But isn't both parts of your complaint, high school?

It was for me. Maybe not that extreme. But no one is their true self in high school. And classmates can form bonds but for the most part we're there because it's the law/the right thing to do/the path to success. Not because we want to make friends.

The only school time I felt the most me and affection from fellow students was elementary between ages 5-10.

Oh! Mini drama idea. Pre-produced would be ofine great use because of children screentime and work hours laws.

Kim Min Jae (Goblin): Super pretty ( heard he has a deep voice too)

Yeo Jin Gu: To big?

Jung In Sung( young witch in MOTW): to old?

Jinyoung: Seconded

Park Bo Gum: would have been nice but no, he's past this. He can play a student in movies instead( *pat* there there, I know)

Lee Ji Hoon( LOTBS): too old?

Nam Ji Hyun: too established?
Jung Da Bin: just because her name sounds like a name of a good actress ( since I've never watched her)

Park Hye Soo: too perceived to be old? Plus past role connection may make some unable to by her as a highschool student. She's got a chubby, baby face still. cute.

Kim Sae Ron: not because I'm particularly a fan, but because I love her vocal intonation prowess ( whatever that means)

I can't believe Jan Di's brother from BOF is old enough to go to the army!! I feel old.

Park Hye Soo will be a great choice - she is just 22 y. o this year. But then it will be hard to see her in high school uniform since she was already in adult role before. (tbh it crossed my mind it is probably better if she doing the The Lover and Liar than the Introvert Boss)

Jung Da Bin will be great. Jan Di's brother already finished his service, if I am not mistaken?

I second this suggestion. I just finished marathoning Solomon’s Perjury and thought the young casts did a great job overall. Seo Ji-hoon is shaping up to be a rising star, from what I’ve seen of him in Signal, Solomon’s Perjury, and the hilarious Legendary Shuttle (his Gyeongsang-do saturi is seriously the cutest!!) The kid’s got charming looks, screen presence and acting range. I’d be ecstatic if he’s cast in School 2017.

My hope is that they'll do away with the "bully" story line. School 2013 was fine but I'd have appreciated it if they didn't try to glorify Lee Jong-seok and Kim Woo-bin's characters. Whatever reasons behind their actions can't justify the violence. Hopefully, they'll focus more on verbal bullying and alienation as compared to violence as well instead of just straight out fighting. And more spotlight on the female characters too. Stop trying to sell bromance!

If we're talking about work resume then yes PBG has impressive track already before Reply (and so is Go Kyung Pyo) compared to the other young casts, but yep he got his meteoric popularity after Reply.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

He did get public love through Reply. But he and Go Kyung-pyo were well-known rising stars in film and television industry already. Compared to other young leads of Reply who either are known as singers or complete newbies, PBG is well established before 1988. That's also why I think he and GKP didn't experience a setback after the series. They were known as actors PBG and GKP, not as Taek and Soonwoo, thus have easily shed their characters for another.

I was surprised to read Park Bo Gum and Go Kung Pyo were way too big for Reply series. Maybe in Park's case, but I think he landed the leading role after the Reply's hit.

Everybody really took notice of how good an actor PBG is after Hello Monster. It's a shame it didn't do well in ratings (a blow of SIG and JNR mostly even though they performed well too). Oh, and PBG's Min is a hot topic in Instiz lately https://www.instiz.net/pt/4425671.

If Strong Woman comes after School 2017, then it will great to have him playing high school student again. But he has done few school drama like Heirs and Nine Times Travel, and with a success of Strong Woman, and after wearing CEO's nice suits, he won't wear high school uniform again I believe.

I agree. I'd like to see new talents.

However, the newbie actors will need strong support/veteran actors and I'm even more excited to see who will be cast as the teachers/adults.

Imo 2015 messed up everything especially on highlighting the adult roles. There were none of the teacher-student and teacher-teacher bonding like Jang Nara-LJS/Jang Nara-Min ki and Jang Nara-Choi Daniel that imo made 2013 special. Everyone post School 2013 seems to only remember the bromance.

PBG, LJS, and KWB might not go back to playing support roles, but it would be a dream to see them play new teachers like Jang Nara did.

I echo those people asking for a more female centric drama. I love my bromance but girls are just as capable of having awesome life changing friendships too!

And preferably without one of them turning into a jealous catty snake, or having them both like the same guy. Please?

High school in an all girl's school was the best time of my life. The friendships, sleepovers, waterfights, clothespegs fights (don't ask 😝), teasing teachers and crazy antics in class... Just a bit of this in a drama would make me very happy.

The bromance and angst in School 2013 killed me and is still one of the best depictions of friendship in dramas I've seen so far.

A female-centric friendship would just be the best thing ever honestly, the friends I made in high school were a huge part of my teenage years, and yeah life-changing friendships occur for both sexes too!

Plus it's so rarely depicted well in high school dramas (or just dramas in general period) that now I'm going to be letdown if this drama doesn't even attempt to include it.

I feel like the guys benefit more from the School series than the girls. Apart from Kim Sohyun (who is already famous), all the breakout actors from the recent school series were males... eg: Lee Jongsuk, Kim Woobin, Nam Joohyuk and Sungjae.

Even though many want new talent, I would like to see Kim Yoo Jung and Kim Sae Ron together in this. Both are good friends in real life and have expressed their interest in acting in a high school drama. If they add Yeo Jin Goo and GOT7's Jinyoung in, it'll be perfect.

Apparently, various producers have given their opinion who they think should star in this new installment of School series in a survey. This is supposidely translated info from TVReport, the list goes as follows:

- Park Hye Soo
- Kim Jung Hyun
- Lee So Won
- Byun Woo Seok
- Lee Tae Hwan
- Jisoo
- Lee Hyun Woo
- Jung Hae In
- Shin Eun Soo
- Woo Do Hwan
- IOI's Jeon Somi
- Jinyoung
- Jin Ki Joo

Somi and Jinyoung were the ones who were selected by the most amount of producers, especially Jinyoung.

I bet if Jisoo is casted in this, he would be stuck in that second lead position who never gets the love interest. Then again, who says they won't switch it up and make sure our SLS is cured in this one?

I REALLY REALLY REALLY wish to see AKMU kids in here, especially Suhyun who I feel has that instinctive quality every time she acts in their MVs. She just "gets" it, from the small gestures to her twinkly eyes, she is very expressive yet subtle. I actually root for Jackson instead of Jinyoung since I feel that Jackson has that youthfulness. Every teen drama needs a class clown, right?

As for brattiness, nobody does it better than Jisoo but I think that role would be one too many time in the same pair of shoes for him... Which brings me to Jisoo the girl from Blackpink, who I find has a really goofy yet clever character which is both relatable yet rare to find in any K-Dramas so far.

Here's hoping there are meatier roles for the teachers this time around. It's something both School 2013 and Dream High did right. Just hoping School 2017 is a return to a more realistic school drama like School 2013. School 2015 was really a chance to do a realistic female centric storyline (especially with KSH as the lead) but the writers blew it. It would be nice if School 2017 makes an attempt. I hope the producers really cast strong actors all around. I really don't want to see anyone in this drama idol or not who can't act. But as far as the lead roles go, I'd rather see actors get those parts. It seems like it's getting harder and harder for actors (and especially actresses) to get breakthrough roles.

I really hope this one will be more like School 2013 than 2015. 2015 was a mess and lost everything that was good about it's predecessor.

Although chances are slim, I also hope they go with some fresher faces and cast some rookies or some of the other young actors that haven't had their breakthroughs yet. The only people I absolutely don't want to see are the Kim girls and Ji Soo. I'm so bored with seeing them.

So weird that I was just talking with my sister about the School series last night and how I would like to see Lee Sung Kyung and Hyung Sik to be in one an then I come here in Dramabeans and there really will be one in the works... My sister said that aren't Hyung Sik and Sung Kyung too old for School and I told her maybe not as long as the drama will be in the line of School 2013 which pretty much has a theme that has a more serious tone... I know my dream for Sung Kyung and Hyung Sik team up in a drama will be very difficult to happen but I can't help but want to really see how they would look in a drama together... drama gods hear my wishes please... chaebal yo!
