The writer-director team behind the successful 2010 drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” are working together on a new project. Local news agencies report that director Kim Won Seok and writer Kim Tae Hee are currently developing a new musical drama set in high school for cable network Mnet.

The title of the drama is yet to be revealed, but it is reportedly intended to compete with “Dream High 2” when it airs next year.
