Who Are You: School 2015 Gears Up for Premiere Next Week with New Posters and Previews

Each installment in the School series of K-dramas is its own entity, with a different screenwriter, PD, and cast. That means the recent success of School 2013 can’t and won’t provide any clue as to the ultimate fate of upcoming Who Are You: School 2015. With Blood all wrapped up School 2015 takes over the KBS Mon-Tues time slot starting next week, but I actually feel KBS might’ve shot itself in the foot but switching around the scheduling for School 2015 and Hello Monster. Right now MBC‘s Angry Mom has a head start on the schoolyard bullying subject matter, so even if School 2015 has a different set up the general vibe might be the same and I don’t know if audiences will feel like watching more of the same type of conflict. It harkens back to the two multiple personality dramas airing at the same time a few months ago, I just want to yell at the networks to space it out for my sanity’s sake. I’ll definitely give this drama a shot but having a cast of mostly unknowns other than leading lady Kim So Hyun, school story fatigue, and going up against Heard it Through the Grapevine and Splendid Politics (Hwajung), may not grant this School the same rating successes as its predecessors.

  1. I’m not convinced by the male casting. They don’t really have charisma like Lee Jong Suk or Kim Woo bin. Nam Joo Hyuk was cute in Surplus Princess but for a lead role is not enough.

    • School 2015 has ended. Kim Sohyun did so well acting as the twins. I can feel the difference in her acting when doing Eun Bi and Eun Byul.

      As for the male leads, Nam Joo Hyuk as the lead was…bleh…but so many people fell in love with Yook Sungjae’s Gong Tae Kwang. For me, it’s as if his role was the lead in this drama. It was a battle of OTPs towards the end for the fans. and a lot were angry at the writers for not giving Tea Kwang a pretty ending with the lead girl.

  2. I hope it’s lighter since Angry Mom is nailing dark. It’d be a fresh breath of air if this works. Hope the cast doesnt disappoint.

  3. I hope it is more intense than Angry Mom because if not, I’ll probably get boring. BTW, ep 1 rating is only 3.8. OMYGOSH and its competitors Hwajung & Heard it through the Grapevine had 9.9 & 11.1 in ratings. This drama is sooo critical

    • It’s a teen drama. So, hitting a rating lower than 10% is expected. Anyways, School 2015 is well received overseas. So, it is still a hit.
