High School King of Savvy rounds out cast


Philip Choi, Lee Yeol-eum, Chun Yi-seul

We’ve got the last push to finalize casting for the upcoming mistaken-identity rom-com High School King of Savvy, tvN’s next Monday-Tuesday drama starring Seo In-gook as a high school jock who pretends to be his lookalike older brother at work. Apparently they look so alike that Seo In-gook is just going to play both roles. I’m already confused, but I guess two brothers who look nearly identical is far better an explanation than random doppelganger, as so many dramas are wont to do.

Seo In-gook’s character is a high school hockey star and the immature younger bro to his hyung who’s an executive at a large IT company. For some reason the little brother ends up masquerading as his hyung in the office, and comedy ensues. That’s where he’ll meet the heroine Lee Hana (Triple), a temp, and second lead Lee Soo-hyuk (Shark), a young director of business and marketing who’s popular with the ladies.

Rounding out the cast of supporting players are Philip Choi (Mandate of Heaven, A Star’s Lover, Soulmate), who will play a planning and development manager at the company, and Chun Yi-seul (Like a Fairytale) as a shopaholic employee. The two of them will prove to be big obstacles for the hero’s ongoing ruse as their boss. I love the idea of the high school kid bossing all of these adults around.

Lee Yeol-eum (Junior High School Student Miss A) plays Lee Hana’s little sister, the girl who also happens to have a crush on Seo In-gook in his high school incarnation. Well that’s not complicated. She’s got a one-sided crush on the star athlete, and she’ll unwittingly be her sister’s rival for his affections. I like how the premise is shaping up, and I already can’t wait to see Seo In-gook as the golden boy at school and the fish out of water at work.

High School King of Savvy follows Witch’s Romance in June.

As for me, I can't wait to see Lee Soo Hyuk being "popular with the ladies". I hope he's a cheeky casanova and not an aloof, perfect director. Hehehehe

Of course I'm excited for any Seo In-gook drama, but this premise sounds like it could be either really good or really bad.

This seems like one of those shows that sounds like such a mess on paper, but REALLY works on the screen. The news for this show sort of reminds me of the weeks leading up to I Hear Your Voice...lots of headtilting, but the show was incredible. I'm excited for this one!

The more I hear about this, the more I'm reminded of Jane by Design. I really hope I'm able to watch this drama, I like Seo In-gook very much, He's about the only person I know in this show.

Wow, someone besides me has watched Jane by Design!

I wan't sure if I was going to watch this drama, but since I see that similarity, now I'm going to have to check it out.... because I really liked Jane by Design... a fact I'm only willing to admit anonymously.

I hope the reason for his pretending doesn't involve his brother in a coma or something.

I swear tvN has the best promos for their tv dramas. (Emergency couple, Flower Grandpa Investigation Unit, Witch's Romance, Reply 1994). Hopefully this drama's promos are as fun.

As I said in another post, before we had all these details, I felt this sounded like the movie Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead...and it does, with a few more twists!

But, I have to agree with Jyyjc above, I sincerely hope the brother is not absent because of a coma or something.

I'm still curious about how the hero will be able to juggle school and corporate work. Sports injury since he's a jock? School holidays? His "brother" got him a leave of absence?

Yes, looking forward to this one, LOL!

They had me at Lee Soo Hyuk. Pretty much anything related to the White Christmas cast I will chance. I'm glad Kim Woo Bin and Sung Jun have been getting more recognition lately and it's time Lee Soo Hyuk gets his time in the spotlight too. Here's to hoping this is a great drama and Kim Young Kwang and Hong Jong Hyun receive more love!
