KBS Plans to Air Second Season of “Dream High” Early Next Year


KBS is currently in the works of finalizing a deal for another season of its hit drama series “Dream High.” According to KBS officials, “Dream High” is already in the early planning stages for its second season, under the goal of airing it as early as Jan. 2012.

“We are planning to produce the second season of ‘Dream High.’ We can’t reveal any detailed plans at this point as nothing has been confirmed, but the overall format will be similar to the first season and perhaps we’ll be able to air it from early next year,” an official from KBS told local media. It’s unclear if the star-studded cast of Season One, including Park Jin Young, Bae Yong Joon, miss-A’s Suzy, 2PM’s Taecyeon and Woo Young, and IU will star again in Season Two. But it’s reported that Key East Entertainment and JYP Entertainment will jointly work again for the production of this season, raising hopes for another show with a group of idol star appearances.

Before the first season of “Dream High” got aired, many questioned its quality of acting and storyline, as it involved a lot of idol stars with little acting experience. But as the show went on, the idol star cast displayed improved acting skills and the plot turned out to be quite interesting, resulting in the show garnering an average TV rating of 15.7%, which was the highest rating in the Monday-Tuesday prime time slots.

Following the news of “Dream High: Season Two,” many netizens have shown interest with high hopes of seeing it as soon as possible. Some said the first season ended too early while others were curious to see who the next cast will involve. Many idol stars are talented enough to do both acting and singing these days; Super Junior’s Siwon, Big Bang’s TOP, MBLAQ’s Lee Joon, former 2PM member Jay Park, and KARA’s Goo Hara have all made or are planning to make acting debuts.
