I came across this drama still which brought back memories and made me realize how much certain promising young things have truly made it. The above drama still contains four character shots of supporting leads in the sitcom High Kick 3, which aired in 2011 which makes it six years ago. The leads were Yoon Kye Sang and Seo JI Suk but included in the sprawling cast were up-and-comers Lee Jong Seok and Krystal playing siblings, and Kim Ji Won and Baek Jin Hee as love interests. In the intervening six years all four of the young talent have become leads in their own right where already or soon. They also currently or soon will have a K-drama on – Baek Jin Hee is the lead in Missing 9, Lee Jong Seok will do While You Were Sleeping with Suzy, Kim Ji Won steps into her first lead role in Third Rate My Way opposite Park Seo Joon, and Krystal will be donning fantasy mantle in Bride of the Water God with Nam Joo Hyuk and Shin Se Kyung. How time flies and also how satisfying to see young talent hit their potential.
All three High Kick series have spawned big stars not just the last installment in High Kick 3, though I wish this series gets resurrected because when done right it was fantastic.
