At first glance, I thought a newspaper had just spliced an old picture of Kim Sae Ron in Hi! School: Love On next to a still of Nam Joo Hyuk from Who Are You: School 2015, that’s how much each looks like a character from their previous dramas. A closer look reveals them to be wearing the same school uniform, and fast growing Kim Sae Ron looks noticeably older than she did in HSLO, so this turns out to be a brand spanking new drama still from their upcoming drama Glamorous Temptation (Their Fortress) where they look so visually compatible as cute teenage besties and future OTP.
Airing on MBC Mon-Tues, the drama will be a 50-episode modern tale that would seems more at home on the weekend time slot, but is instead going head-to-head in prime time opposite SBS‘s long sageuk Six Flying Dragons and the one-two punch of Sassy Go Go and Oh My God over on KBS. I’m planning to check out the first ten episodes as those are the childhood portion, and I really love Kim Sae Ron in whatever she does even if the script sucks. Seeing tall Nam Joo Hyuk towering over tiny adorable Kim Sae Ron does bring back all those memories from School 2015 and his performance opposite Kim So Hyun. Sure hope he brings along major improvement for this go-around.
