I guess there’s not much story to tell within the School series if it’s about the happy and well-adjusted lives of ordinary high school students in Korea. I’m sure there are such kids but within the School universe it feels like everyone who gets screen time is dealing with one of the rainbow spectrum of school yard woes. In School 2017 the stakes are increased yet again as the first teaser shows there is a hooded vigilante at the school who is battling the administration to the delight of kids.
Who Are You: School 2015 really focused on Kim So Hyun female lead with the twins mystery and the standard bullying but taking things to the next level with full on criminal conduct really makes it hard to absorb the drama as telling slightly heightened dramatic tales of real life school age teens. It’s also unknown whether the newbie three leads Kim Se Jung, Kim Jung Hyun, and Jang Dong Yoon will anchor the drama with solid acting but I’ll give it a shot since School 2015 introduced me to both Yook Sung Jae and Nam Joo Hyuk.
