School 2017 adds more students and a teacher to its lineup

The newest installment in KBS’s School series has added more names to its cast, and the range of acting experience is pretty in keeping with previous entries in the long-running franchise. The most notable addition is Han Joo-wan (Blow Breeze, Hwajeong), who is considering a teacher role, while newbie actress Seol In-ah (Strong Woman Do Bong-soon) and idol group SF9’s Ro-woon are up to play his students.

The role Han Joo-wan will potentially play is a teacher known throughout the school as an “idol” teacher because of his good looks, but in contrast to his popularity, his character is described as painfully weak-hearted. And you chose to be a high school teacher? Yikes. Also, with Han Joo-wan up to play the teacher, that must mean Kim Jung-hyun (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) was offered a student role, which I’m completely fine with. He fits that brooding rebel image so well. At present, Han Joo-wan, Ro-woon, and Kim Jung-hyun are all still considering their offers to star in School 2017.

Seol In-ah, on the other hand, has already confirmed her role as a student named Hong Nam-joo, a character so conscious of her looks that she can’t go long without looking in the mirror. She’ll hold the key to our leads’ fates, which sounds quite dramatic for a show about high school, but what is high school without the drama, I guess. Seol In-ah will join idol group Gugudan’s Kim Se-jung, who has also confirmed her offer for the lead role. I know that Kim Se-jung is considered a risky choice, but I find her pretty adorable in her variety appearances, so I’m hoping her bubbly charm translates to onscreen presence.

School 2017 is scheduled to follow Fight My Way on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning in July.

So the character that originally sejung was cast for is seol in ah's character. I thought she was a little stiff in SWDWS

I agree. She was stiff in SWDBS. But maybe bec there wasn't much character development? She basically just dumped a guy in favor of another. Hopefullu, she'll do better this time.

I don't really know any of these actors/actresses but I'll be looking forward to them. The School Series has been well known at helping new actors/actresses make a breakthrough. After Kim Yoo Jung declined and Gugudan idol Kim Se Jung stepped in, I was getting excited for this new show with new people. Hwaiting!
(Still loves Kim Yoo Jung. How can I not?)

Oh I hope Rowoon accepts the offer, I am so curious to see how he would fair in the drama. Plus, I mean...he's not bad to look at. But I really hope they get quality actors here. School is always a favorite for me as far as breakout talent.

Is the lead male character the one that Kim Jung Hyun has been offered? If so, yay!! He has a lot of potential. He's a good choice imo.

Oh. I thought news report said Rowoon already confirmed.

Btw, Rowoon was in 2016 web drama "Click Your Heart". The drama won Best Teen Drama Award at KWEB Fest 2016.

thought that SF9 Chani will be a good choice but actually Ro woon is not bad either. He has the looks and already played in web drama before, so I hope this chance will make him become popular. Can't wait to see the drama

I just read, Kim Jung Hyun a. k. a Mori has confirmed as male lead with Jang Dong Yoon (Solomon Perjury). So yeay for me. They are rookie actors, with few experiences. If this will be something like School 2013, i think i'll have more interest.

Surprisingly, I haven't seen many people refer to Sejung as a risky choice on DB. Most were relatively optimistic in the other news post. Is it different elsewhere?

Well she had a guest appearance on Sound of Your Heart as the annoying neighbor. It was alright. Her character was annoying.

I hope she does well though. She seems like a really hard-working person.
