“School 2021” Unveils 1st Glimpse Of Cho Yi Hyun In Her Starring Role As Kim Yo Han’s First Love
The eighth installment in KBS’s popular “School” drama series, “School 2021” will tell the story of high school students choosing to follow their dreams instead of just preparing for college entrance exams. The coming-of-age tale will follow the growth, friendships, and romances of 18-year-olds facing an uncertain future.
WEi’s Kim Yo Han will star in the drama as Gong Ki Joon, a former Taekwondo athlete who must give up on his dream due to an injury, while Cho Yi Hyun will play his first love Jin Ji Won, who is determined to achieve her dream of becoming a carpenter. Jin Ji Won winds up clashing with her mom over the issue of schooling, but she is a confident character who isn’t afraid of speaking her mind.
In newly released stills from the upcoming drama, Jin Ji Won’s passion and courage is on full display as she stages a one-woman demonstration to protest the unfair dismissal of a recently-fired teacher. Another photo captures the headstrong student toiling away in her studio, exhibiting laser focus as she examines her own work with a disapproving expression.
“School 2021” will premiere in November, following the conclusion of KBS 2TV’s “Dali and Cocky Prince.”
