I’m curious why KBS in particular keeps sticking with the high school dramas when all recent ones have floundered to failed in ratings. Who Are You: School 2015 is only considered not an abject failure because it’s ratings went up mildly during its run and the drama got buzz online, but that can’t even be said for the recent Sassy Go Go. In general school dramas remain a hard sell, and with KBS being such a ratings doormat in the Mon-Tues slot, I’m perplexed why it scheduled upcoming Moorim School to follow Oh My Venus.
Maybe the drama will be fantastic, anything can happen, but for now the only hook in Moorim School is headliner Lee Hyun Woo (above) and a cameo appearance by Lee Bum Soo (below). There are also tons of idols and newbies, including Hong Bin of the group VIXX, but since none of them are familiar to me I’ll just keep a side eye out for this drama as it continues to film for an early January premiere. Lee Hyun Woo does look unexpectedly good with that ashy blond hair color, but the same can’t be said for the hair style Lee Bum Soo is stuck with. Let’s just call it a crew up reverse mullet on top, or plain fugly.
