Kim Jung-tae joins Dream High 2
Okay, my interest in this drama just shot straight up. I mean, I know, the singing and dancing is the reason to watch, but the best things about the original Dream High were the runaway comedic performances by the teachers. And now, my favorite ajusshi star of late, Kim Jung-tae (Can’t Lose, Girl K) has been cast as the principal in Dream High 2. Cue dancing chorus of b-boys.
He’ll be playing Kirin’s new principal, who also happens to be an entertainment agency executive. Huh? Isn’t that kind of a conflict of interest? Not that reality has any place in this world, but that’s weird that a principal would be allowed to make money from grooming his students for stardom.
I suddenly can’t wait to see this drama now, because casting Kim Jung-tae gives me the assurance that the sequel won’t forgo the funny. If he recreates the trot singing lesson from Banga Banga for the kids, that might be my new favorite thing. And not to count him out of the performances, here he is, contributing to the Girl K OST:
Now JYP has to sign onto this drama for sure, because Kim Jung-tae needs a rival for sing-offs and dance-offs between the faculty members. Screw the kids’ rivalry. I wanna see THAT.
Dream High 2 is currently neck-deep in casting, and premieres January 30 on KBS.
