Seo In-gook starts his double life in High School King of Savvy

That doofy look on Seo In-gook’s face is priceless. I think I’m going to love his totally crazy one-man(-boy) quest to live a secret double life as schoolboy and boss man. He stars in tvN’s newest zany comedy High School King of Savvy about a high-schooler who somehow ends up masquerading as his twentysomething hyung, who happens to be a department director at a large company. True, there are some leaps in logic in the premise (namely, how does he get away with it, and WHY?) but I’m hoping the result will be so entertaining that I won’t care. You have to figure it’s less masquerading than any crossdressing drama out there.

The new teaser introduces the cast, starting with the hero, an eighteen-year-old cocky high school hockey star who then moonlights as his office worker hyung. Lee Hana (Triple) plays the quirky 4-D heroine, a temporary employee at the office who will assume that the kid is her boss.

Complicating matters is her younger sister (Lee Yeol-eum), who happens to go to school with the high school Seo In-gook and has a huge crush on him. She’s described as his “cute stalker”; I wonder how cute she’ll be once the jig is up. Rounding out the main cast is Lee Soo-hyuk (Shark), who plays a “super elite manager” at the company.

The teaser is simple but gets the premise across in a fun way, as we watch the hero first breeze his way through the switcheroo with a swagger, only to grow increasingly harried between school and work, until he finally shows up at school in his suit and at work in his hockey uniform. Now that’s an efficient use of thirty seconds. I’m looking forward to the frothy light tone, and Seo In-gook is going to kill it in this double role, which seems almost tailor-made for him.

High School King of Savvy follows Witch’s Romance on Mondays and Tuesdays, and premieres June 16.

Seo In-gook is at an age when he can convincingly play teenager as well as adult...or should I say, he has a face that lets him play teenager as well as adult, because Lee Soo-hyuk is younger than him and I'm pretty sure no one is ever going to cast LSH as a teenager again ;)

(loved his turn in White Christmas as one though)

TVN has the best promos. They always feel hip and fresh. Given this show may suck balls. But the trailer makes me want to check it out.

The teasers do look cute though... Hopefully SIG in a suit and tie will help ease the paaaainnnnn

I KNOW. I'm thanking the heavens that we at least get to see Seo In-Gook as soon as Park Seo-Joon is gone :(

@ Chandler - I agree with you! I've only seen SIG in Master's Sun and he's not bad there. I'd think he'll be contributing to the OST of this drama as well.

Now I just wish to see Uhm Jung Hwa & Park Seo Joon together in variety shows after Witch's Romance ends. Happy Together? Running Man? I know that Running Man had invited cast from popular dramas that are not from SBS, e.g. My Daughter Seo Young. Can someone make my wish come true? Please? :D

Come to think of it, Park Seo Joon and Seo In Gook were in the same Running Man ep before!

Even if the basic premise requires one to suspend belief (but less so than when it comes to the supernatural, time travel, etc.) - this looks very promising.

Love Hee Hana's expressions.

I guess our hero will be delighted to see the heroine call him "Oppa" till she finds out(if she does it eventually,if she doesn't find out and gets close to him,tll then is boss),i guess he will pretend maybe to be older than her...this will be fun to see the 18 years old guy boss all the others older than him and get with it jja

I really have no confidence in tvN's way of making dramas, Nine, Reply 1997 and few others were a strike of luck but I have to wait and see with this one.

Wow - I thought just the opposite: have more confidence that it will be off the wall awesomey in a quirkier way than conventional dramas from the 'big three'

Who's the pasty-faced guy in the scarlet lip gloss? Is he going to be the first legitimate trans-gen main character in krama? Or is he a Dracula wannabee?

In any event, Lee Hana looks to be having a great time, along with our hero. Could be a lot of fun.

LOL well he did star in Vampire Idol...

I adore Lee Soo Hyuk, just not in the way where I'm personally attracted to him. He's actually very endearing and he has pretty good comic timing so I think he'll be good in this.

OMG that trailer is fantastic!!! Like seriously my favorite trailer for a show I've seen in a long time! This looks like so much fun! And the leads are fantastic!

Also why do I have this feeling that Seo In Gook landed a fantastic role for himself?! I adored Yoon Jae, but looks like he'll be rather cheeky in this and I can't wait!

I'm always interested in a show where someone does a great "YAH!" in the trailer. Means a number of great "YAH" moments in the show.

After 'White Christmas' (Angeeeel) and 'Deep Rooted Tree', this drama will be the third where I watch Lee Soo-hyuk. Gosh, I miss his husky voice ~~

Speaking of great "YAH!", I don't know this kid Lee Yeol-eum from anywhere, but she could make a career out of playing Lee Yoon-ji's baby sister in every drama. She's even got that same lethal glare when she gets mad.

Maybe it's just me, but Seo In Gook seriously has this Aaron Yan look about him when he's all decked up in a suit. Or I could just be seeing things seen as though I'm currently watching an Aaron Yan drama - either way, Seo In Gook is looking mighty dapper in his dual characterisation! Finally, something to look forward to!

i love dorky Seo In Guk, he was so loveable in No Breathing too

I just realized that I need to live at tvN, they have a lot of my favorite boys.

Can we just do a revolving door of dramas from Choi Jin Hyuk to Park Seo Joon to Seo In Guk and just repeat forever?

As much as I LOVE Seo In-gook, I'm still iffy about watching this. Maybe the first episode, if only to find out what happens to his hyung and how the switch gets started. After that, we'll see.

I will definitely watch this! The trailer looks awesome and I love Seo In Guk! My most favourite character of him so far is Yoon Yoonje, but I have a feeling that Lee Minsuk will take that crown

I'll definitely watch this. I love Seo In Guk. He can act as a high schooler as well as an adult. I love him in Reply 1997 the most so far, but I have a feeling that Lee Minsuk will take the crown.

Yeaassss, Seo In Guk!!!!! Love him so much. He's a multitalented man; he can act, he can sing, he can rap, he can play the music, etc. The casting is perfect, because he can manage himself to look like a teenager AND an adult just by changing his hairstyle. I will watch this for him, plus I really like the trailer. Hope this is going to be fun and full of hearts, too, please, tvN?
