This may have the legs to become a once every two years thing and I don’t have a problem with that at all. KBS has confirmed the scheduling of a new entry in the School drama franchise, airing this summer starting in July on the Mon-Tues time slot. School 2017 is the latest arrival following Who Are You: School 2015 which turned Kim So Hyun from child actress to legit actress and launched the careers of Nam Joo Hyuk and Yook Sung Jae. KBS is auditioning a young and fresh-faced cast for School 2017 and I’m excited to see what new talent is introduced to the world through the latest iteration of this franchise.
Let’s not forget that School 2013 sent Lee Jong Seok and Kim Woo Bin into the path to Hallyu superstars they are today though that drama did not create any female actress breakouts.
