Chu Young Woo And Hwang Bo Reum Byeol Grow Closer Despite Their Differences In “School 2021”
The eighth installment in KBS’s popular “School” drama series, “School 2021” tells the story of high school students choosing to follow their dreams instead of just preparing for college entrance exams. The coming-of-age tale follows the growth, friendships, and romances of 18-year-olds facing an uncertain future.
Previously, Jung Young Joo (Chu Young Woo) and Kang Seo Young (Hwang Bo Reum Byeol) agreed on pretending to be a couple for each other’s benefit, and they shocked the school with news of their relationship. Although it’s a contractual relationship based on their own gains, Jung Young Joo comforted Kang Seo Young when other students talked behind her back, and he became Kang Seo Young’s shade when she was studying under the sunlight.
In the newly released stills, Jung Young Joo and Kang Seo Young look at each other differently than before. The two, who previously clashed like water and oil, are gradually growing closer to one another.
Jung Young Joo discovers Kang Seo Young working alone in the dark woodworking club room, and he thoughtfully hands the injured Kang Seo Young a box of band-aids. Meanwhile, Kang Seo Young has a difficult expression on her face as she looks at Jung Young Joo’s hand, which is even more injured than hers.
Following the rules of their agreement, the two walk back home together from school, and they bond even more by opening up about their true feelings to one another. In particular, Jung Young Joo will express his complex and subtle emotions to Kang Seo Young, who dreams of living an ordinary life like other people, raising curiosity about their conversation in the upcoming episode.
The production team shared, “Various events will be depicted through the contractual relationship between Jung Young Joo and Kang Seo Young. Viewers will feel excited to see the process in which the two people with very different dispositions begin to influence and change each other little by little.”
“School 2021” airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 9:30 p.m. KST.
