The highly anticipated KBS drama “Dream High 2” is close to casting 2AM’s Jinwoon, SISTAR’s Hyorin, and actress Kang So Ra as their lead roles, local media reported on November 23. According to multiple industry officials, the three stars are in talks with the production crew of “Dream High 2,” and are close to signing a contract soon, but nothing has been finalized yet.
“Jinwoon and Kang So Ra are some of the top candidates to join the show. But none of the casting has been confirmed,” the head of the production team was quoted as saying by Star News.
None of the stars has confirmed their casting either. According to Star News, Jinwoon and Kang So Ra’s party said, “We have been requested to appear in the show, but nothing is set in stone.” Hyorin’s representative also said, “We’re reviewing it positively and arranging their schedules. But it’s not finalized yet.”
The first episode of “Dream High 2” is set to air on January 30. The first season was a mega success in Korea, as well as other markets such as Japan and China. Just a few days ago, Park Jin Young was confirmed to be the only original cast member to join the sequel of “Dream High.” Final casting members are expected to be confirmed by early next month.
