Ten K-Drama Actors That Returned To High School For A Role

Ten K-Drama Actors That Returned To High School For A Role

Shin Min Ah (Photo : Oh My Venus)

Many dramas use different actors to portray the backstory of how characters first met when they were in high school. But a few use 20-something, 30-something and even 40-something actors to play the high school equivalent of their characters. Shin Min Ah is the latest actress who put on a high school uniform for a role-and look great in it. Stills from "Oh My Venus" show her as a beautiful popular high school student named Kang Joo Eun.

At 31, the actress still manages to look the part. Who else rocked the uniform look in a drama? Here are a few more contenders we think pulled it off.

2. Lee Min Ho. One of the reasons the 28-year-old actor chose the role of Kim Tan in the drama "The Heirs" was that he might soon be too old to wear a uniform convincingly. "The reason I chose "Heirs" was because I wanted to do a youthful romance wearing a school uniform before I turned 30," he said at the press conference for his film "Gangnam Blues." "I think it will be difficult to see me in a school uniform from now on."

3. That has not stopped older actors from returning to high school. Kim Hee Sun. Kim was 38 when she filmed "Angry Mom." She played a character who pretended to be a high school student so she could protect her teen daughter from bullying. She looked so good as a student that she managed to make a fellow student, played by Ji Soo, fall in love with her.

4. and 5. Choi Ji Woo and Lee Sang Yoon. Although another actress played the younger version of Choi Ji Woo when she was an arts school student, Choi Ji Woo and co-star Lee Sang Yoon dressed up as high school students to revisit their old school in "Twenty Again.

(Photo : Twenty Again)

6. and 7. Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin. Lee Jong Suk were both 23 when they filmed "School 2013." With Lee"s baby face and long lean frame, he looked the part of a high school student. He and Park Shin Hye also played the high school versions of themselves two years later when they co-starred in "Pinocchio." Kim again played a high school student in "The Heirs."

8. and 9. Lee Jin Wook. Lee, 34, and Ha Ji Won, 37, played younger versions of themselves in "The Time I Didn"t Love You, 7,000 Days." Both actors lost weight for their roles so they could pull of the younger look.

10. Lee Sun Kyun. The 40-year-old actor wore a school uniform last year when he played a younger version of his character in "Miss Korea."

Can you think of other actors that rocked a school uniform at an age when they would no longer be wearing one? Let us know.

Seoul School of Performing Arts: a K-Pop fangirl

Seoul School of Performing Arts: a K-Pop fangirl"s dream high school

You know you"re in your dream high school when you"re surrounded by K-Pop idols! Seoul School of Performing Arts (SOPA) is a high school that attracts many idols due to its focus on the arts. Let"s play a game of make-believe--if SOPA was an ordinary public school and you, a lucky fangirl, were to attend, which role would high school stereotypical role would each idol play?

Here are my guesses:

The football captain Kai

Aside from being a wizard with his dancing feet, Kai gives off the confident air of a cocksure jock. Plus, who wouldn"t have a crush on this cutie as he strides down the hallways like a football champ?

The cheerleaders Joy


SONAMOO"s Euijin

Rookies Red Velvet"s Joy, G-Friend, and SONAMOO"s Euijin would make perfect cheerleaders. With Joy"s constantly cheery disposition, G-FRIEND"s high-kicks, and Euijin"s twerks combined, these fresh girls would make kickass team.

The mascot Hyeri

Now that we"ve run through the athletes, who else would make a better mascot than mukbang queen Hyeri? With her killer aegyo and ability to consume all kinds of food in one bite, Hyeri will make the enemy both fall head over heels yet also cower in fear at the thought of being devoured Kirby-style.

The preps



A Pink  


Sehun, Sulli, A Pink members Hayoung, Na-Eun, and Namjoo, and Boyfriend members Kwangmin, Youngmin, and Minwoo all have one thing in common. They look like total preps.

While Sehun has a cool demeanor that makes him seem untouchable, Sulli and A Pink are all look like ladies that come from a refined background. Meanwhile, the Boyfriend members are cute as a trio of flowerboys who would definitely find success should they ever start a high school host club.

The band geeks Jonghyun and Juniel

CNBLUE"s Jonghyun and Juniel are both masters of the guitar. A duo that both comes from the band-music oriented agency FNC Entertainment, they would definitely be labeled as adorable "band geeks" for their love and skill for music.

The rebels BTS"s Jungkook

Lovelyz"s Yoo Ji Ae

BTS"s energetic Jungkook and Lovelyz"s spunky Yoo Ji Ae would grace the halls of a high school as the rebels who act as they please. Despite their cute appearance and sweet mannerisms, these two strong idols are definitely no pushovers and won"t take crap from anybody--whether from other students or from teachers.

Glee Club Lee Hi

B1A4"s Gongchan

Glee Clubs make high school a musical place. Vocally talented, Gongchan and Lee Hi would rule the school with their melodic voices.

Class clown TEEN TOP"s Ricky

A cutie and a total dork, TEEN TOP"s Ricky would be the kind of guy that brightens up the room and makes everyone around him smile at his quirky antics, making him perfect for the role of "class clown."

Teacher"s pet Suzy

Last but not least, we have the teacher"s pet--none other than miss A"s Suzy! With her goddess looks, heavenly smile, and angelic personality, Suzy has become the entertainment industry"s favorite. Seems like this girl was destined to be loved, so of course she would receive the same treatment anywhere she goes. 

Bonus: here"s a picture of the teacher"s pet with the school mascot.

What do you guys think? Do you agree with these roles?


Woman Crush Wednesday: IU's Character Kim Pil Suk On

Woman Crush Wednesday: IU's Character Kim Pil Suk On "Dream High"

Woman Crush Wednesday: “Dream High’s” Kim Pil Suk

This week on Woman Crush Wednesday, we will take no heed at dreamy girls like Geum Jan Di from “Boys Over Flowers”or Go Eun Chan from “Coffee Prince. Instead of that, let’s spend some minutes on IU's character Kim Pil Suk from “Dream High”.

Due to her choice of wardrobe during the Kirin School of Arts audition, Kim Pil Suk is nicknamed Miss Sushi. She’s an overweight girl with an amazing voice, which is problematic for one who wishes for fame. Uncertain of how to reject her application solely based on appearances, Kim Pil Suk luckily claims a spot for herself at Kirin, where even sky high dreams can be reached.

Her accomplishments doesn’t stop there as Kim Pil Suk also claims a spot here on our weekly Woman Crush Wednesday feature. These are the five reasons why (spoilers ahead):

1. Kim Pil Suk is super cute!

WCW_Kim Pil Suk Cute

From that first encounter where she wore the sushi costume to the way she would faithfully leave candy at Jason‘s locker, Kim Pil Suk is cute from head to toe. She falls over in surprise if Jason gets too close, leaves him cute sticky notes, and constantly carries around a doll like a security blanket. Her chuckles and excited dances are nothing short of endearing and her slightly spastic demeanor is humorous and delightful. But the great thing about her is that, despite her naturally adorable nature, when it comes to music and singing, Kim Pil Suk is completely serious, dedicated, and passionate.

2. She has the voice of an angel.

WCW_Kim Pil Suk Sing

This reason is pretty self explanatory, but Kim Pil Suk possesses absolute pitch. Her voice is absolutely amazing and captivating to the point where you’ll find yourself lost in her songs whenever she sings. You may unintentionally sway to her music, get chills, or backtrack just to hear her sing again. She’ll make you wish you were a Kirin student as well, so you can sit with her and listen to her melodic voice on a daily basis.

3. Kim Pil Suk is downright gutsy… at times.

WCW_Kim Pil Suk Gutsy

For someone often soft spoken, Kim Pil Suk has her moments of courage. Going on stage to sing in front of hundreds of people is always a brave act and she pulls it off effortlessly. Having the ability to let Jason know he was in the wrong, giving him a dose of common sense, with complete seriousness and without a trace of adoration in her eyes and tone is another form of courage. Oh, and let’s not forget grabbing Jason by the neck, almost forcibly, as he pulled away from giving her nose a peck to land a big one, we assume, on the lips. Hehe. If that’s not courage, then I’ll need to find myself a dictionary!

4. She has ambitions, hopes, and dreams.

WCW_Kim Pil Suk Ambition

Now, this is mixing things up, but in a drama I watched recently, “Fated to Love You,” the leading male, Lee Gun, said something I really agreed with, something that I thought applies to Kim Pil Suk as I was dissecting all the parts of her that I thought made her crush worthy and all the reasons why I like her. He said, “a woman is most lovable and beautiful when she’s a girl full of dreams.” From the beginning, we were able to see Kim Pil Suk’s dreams and how it has shaped her to change, develop, and grow. We saw how hard she strove to achieve those dreams and how passionate she was about singing. Even when she did not win the contest in the end, she still found an occupation where she could sing and kept that dream alive.

5. Kim Pil Suk is not a mold.

WCW_Kim Pil Suk Weight

I’m all about promoting good health and keeping a fitness regime, but I’m also a firm believer that we were all born with a natural variety of shapes and sizes. With that said, it was refreshing to see someone like Kim Pil Suk, someone who didn’t stop dreaming simply because her outward appearance would have made her an outcast. For some teachers, they very reluctantly accepted her as a student, but managed to eventually look beyond her figure and see her talent, potential, and heart. For other teachers, they accepted her from the beginning and for that, they earned a special place in my heart.

Kim Pil Suk’s weight loss was expected, especially since she was becoming more exposed to talent agencies and stage performances. While a sad fact, it’s universally known that there is a higher chance for success if you’re thin and beautiful, and for a long moment, I feared that our beloved Kim Pil Suk would become nothing more than a mold – someone who portrayed the exact idea that you must be a certain size in order to become successful and to be loved by others.

Thankfully, Kim Pil Suk remained true to herself and solidified herself as crush worthy when she proved time and time again that she was actually quite comfortable in her skin when she was heavier. She even felt awkward when others insinuated that she wasn’t. Eventually, Kim Pil Suk settled for a weight in-between her heaviest and lightest, while still maintaining her love, friends, and happiness.

All in all, I’d say Kim Pil Suk sets a great example that we should be self-confident, regardless of what we may or may not look like, since it’s the interior – the heart and soul – that truly matters. For these reasons, I deemed Kim Pil Suk Woman Crush Wednesday worthy.

What do you think about Kim Pil Suk? Who would you like to see featured next? Make sure to let us know in the comments below as next week’s Woman Crush Wednesday will be a mystery reveal, where the featured woman will be randomly selected from Soompiers’ nominations found in this article, as well as the articles from the previous two weeks!

Let Kim Pil Suk captivate you with her voice on “Dream High” at SoompiTV!


Actors That Made the Grade Playing High School Students

Actors That Made the Grade Playing High School Students

Seo in Guk Lee Min Ho

Many of the k-drama actors who play high school students are actually 20-something but despite the age difference they manage to make their roles seem quite believable.

The latest to make the grade as a high school student is Seo In Guk in "High School King of Manners." The comedy switches back and forth between the classroom and the boardroom but Seo In Guk does a good job of actually acting like a high school student even in corporate settings. His brash and often immature behavior is interpreted as confidence in a workplace setting.

He"s had some experience. Not only did he really attend high school, it"s not his first role as a student since he also played one in "Reply 1997."

Who else aced the role of a high school student? And who aced it more than once?

Here are some actors we think deserve extra credit.

Lee Min Ho: He got the opportunity for a high school do-over twice. He played the spoiled Gun Jun Pyo in "Boys Over Flowers" and then the more sensitive Kim Tan in "The Heirs." However, "The Heirs" is probably his last high school role as Lee is 27 and starting to look too mature to still be in school. Both dramas take on the subject of bullying and privilege.

Kim Woo Bin: He aced high school friendship in "School 2013" by befriending his classmate played by Lee Jong Suk. He took a stand against bullying in that drama but then turned into something of a bully in "The Heirs," playing Choi Young Do. His vulnerable portrayal of Young Do was one of the best parts of the drama.

Lee Jong Suk: His student character was at a disadvantage in "School 2013" because he didn"t want to fight, but he had an edge when he played a high school student in "I Hear Your Voice" because he could read minds. While "I Hear Your Voice" could not be considered a high school drama, it did spend time there.

Kim Hyun Joong: The singer and actor also got two chances to relive high school. He played the sensitive Ji Hoo in "Boys Over Flowers" and the less sensitive Baek Seung Jo in "Playful Kiss." In the latter drama a high school romance leads to a marriage.

Sung Joon: He played a student whose musical dreams were more important than his academic goals in "Shut Up Flower Boy Band." The members of his band "Eye Candy" had social problems in their new school but their real passion was music.

Kim Soo Hyun: As Song Dam Dong, Kim Soo Hyun found it hard to adjust to life in a performing arts school but his talent shone through and propelled him to stardom. Ok Taecyeon also did a good job of portraying a student with a passion for music.

Also making the grade as students are SHINee"s Minho and Lee Hyun Woo in "To The Beautiful You" and Beast"s Yon Hun Jung and Kang Ha Neul in "Monstar." Kang Ha Neul was also a student in "The Heirs."
