The drama will have the actors portray a variety of students, from straight-A students to problematic students at a prestigious high school that is also a boarding school. Somewhat similar to “The Breakfast Club,” the various students will gather together to form a cheerleading club.
Jung Eunji will portray Kang Yeon Du who is described as being active, honest, popular, and loyal to boot. However, after entering her new school she becomes a poor student. As for the male lead, Lee Won Geun will act as Kim Yeol who is handsome and boasts stellar grades. Interestingly enough, he is also depicted as a free soul. The pair will be at odds with each other when they join different dance and cheerleading teams.
Having successfully acted in various dramas including “Reply 1997” and “Trot Lovers,” many viewers are excited to see Jung Eungji flaunt her acting skills once again. Meanwhile, Lee Won Geun debuted Song Jae Rim‘s younger counterpart in “The Moon That Embraces the Sun” and has since acted in “Secret Door” and “Hyde, Jekyll, Me.”
VIXX’s N will have his first lead role as Ha Dong Jae. His character is brilliant and also has a 4-D oddball personality. Apparently, he will be able to show off his hidden charms as well as experience some romance through his role.
Ji Soo, who gained numerous fans through MBC‘s “Angry Mom,” will portray Seo Ha Joon who is a mysterious student with a secret painful past. His character will be vastly different from his “Angry Mom” character, as he is described to be in the top 5 percent of his school class. However, he endures a tremendous amount of stress due to his studies and grades. On the bright side, he will enjoy a cute bromance with Lee Won Geun!
Rookie actress Chae Soo Bin will be joining the drama as Kwon Su Ah. Her character’s mother has her whole future outlined for her. Although she only joined the cheerleading team as a resume booster, she discovers that she has cheerleading talent. Despite being a new face, the actress has experience as a lead in KBS’s weekend drama “Bluebird’s House.”
The drama promises to deliver quality dancing and singing performances, so there’s high expectations all around. The first episode of “Cheer Up!” will follow “The Eccentric Daughter-in-Law” and air on October 5 at 10 p.m. KST.
