On June 8, a source from production of School 2017 confirmed that actor Han Joo Wan and former SECRET member Han Sun Hwa will both be taking on roles in KBS 2TVs School 2017.
Han Joo Wan will be taking on the role of homeroom teacher Shim Kang Myung while Han Sun Hwa will be taking on the role of a school police officer named Han Soo Ji who is considered to be an unofficial teacher by the students at the school.
Han Joo Wans character Shim Kang Myung was an exemplary student who graduated from a prestigious university and chose the profession of a teacher because it has a guaranteed retirement age. He will be the homeroom teacher of main character Ra Eun Ho (gugudans Kim Sejeong).
