The drama is already attracting attention for the people behind the scenes. Producers and writers from the production teams of reality and music shows are coming together to produce a drama. Director Kim Yong Bum of Super Star K and Dancing 9 takes the helm, while Real Men and Music Bank writer Shin Myung Jin joins forces with Jung Su Hyun of Non-Stop and Apgujeong Diary to produce the script.

I dont think Yong Jun Hyung is good looking (maybe cute in a funny looking way), but his Seol Chan is absolutely the star of this show for me in terms of how his emotional growth really underscores what this drama is all about. Hes a Star, and never fails to remind everyone of that, but he doesnt act like one and instead is really just trying to lead his chosen path in life but finding himself constantly off-kilter because of Se Yi. No one here is really all that dysfunctional or broken, but everyone is hurt and trying to soldier on. In between there are laughter and tears, and lots and lots of singing from the heart. All of Seol Chans little gestures around Se Yi make me love him more, because hes just this little boy doing things subconsciously hoping to get the attention of the girl he likes. Its so juvenile, and so apropos of his personality and what little we know about his childhood. When he pulled her into the van, that might be all sorts of wrong on a boundary and respect perspective, but it was so stirring and sexy I gasped out loud and started to hyperventilate quite like poor Manager Hong. And when she cried on his face, that was one of the most perfect OTP moments ever in a drama, and one that isnt even inherently romantic but is instead utterly raw and from the heart. Thats just what this drama feels like.

Seol Chan rushes into the music room just in time to catch Se Yi and Sun Woo’s rather intimate duet. His face freezes and he visibly seethes at this, muttering to himself why Se Yi even needed to apologize if she was going to do this without him.

When a crazed fan takes it too far with Yoon Seol Chan (Yong Joon-hyung), member of top K-pop boy band Men in Black, he lashes out at her. But in the age of viral videos, no indiscretion is forgiven, especially this one. To take the heat off the ensuing media fiasco, Seol Chan's management company quietly shoos him off to school, where he is joined by a group of misfits, including transfer student Min Se Yi (Ha Yeon-soo), a talented oddball from New Zealand. In true coming-of-age fashion, this exiled group of students discovers the connections that bind them together: music and friendship. It's back to school for the surly Seol Chan, but is he willing to learn anything new?

BEAST's Yong Jun Hyung on "Monstar": "I Don't Think I Will Be Able to Forget It"

News via soompi.com

The idol and actor picked one of the scenes he remembered most as the scene in which he played basketball with fellow male lead Kang Ha Neul. For another, he chose the scene in which his school band, Color Bar, sang Dont Make Me Cry. It was a scene in which I felt a sense of ecstasy even while filming. In this scene, Color Bar surprises everyone with their talent and teamwork when no one had any expectations for this group of underdogs.

Yong Jun Hyung was asked what Monstar meant to him. He replied, This was my first drama, and it was also a project that helped me grow in many ways. I dont think I will be able to forget it.

The PD is going through Color Bar members to see who to use for their expose. They exclude Kyu Dong, Eun Ha, Na Na, and Sun Woo, until only Se Yi remains. The assistant reveals that Se Yi’s father was friends with the former music producer J. Han and the kids are currently practicing at his basement. The assistant isn’t keen what the PD wants to do and he’s fine if she tells Seol Chan about his intentions. Seol Chan hears about what the PD is doing and he calls the assistant back. Sun Woo overhears this and tries to find out about why the PD is interested in the personal lives of the kids of Color Bar. Seol Chan says he’ll handle it and leaves.

Seol Chan confronts the PD and tells him not to use his friends just because he can’t do the show. He says Color Bar won’t perform but the PD reminds him that his friends wants to do it.

Written and Video Preview for Episode 12 of Monstar

The heydays of watching tons of dramas all the time are long gone for me, but in its place is a contentment borne from finding just a handful a year that bring me delight. This week started with the end of Cruel City (Heartless City) and will end with the conclusion of Monstar. I’m sad two of my fave dramas at this moment are ending the same time but optimistic the newly arrived options will yield one or two to take its place. Monstar was the biggest surprise of the year for me, having heard nothing about it and the depth of my affection for it once I started watching really is unprecedented for something so simple. Just a bunch of high school kids and lots of musical interludes, with background stories filled with angst peppered in to form a narrative glue. But it worked like magic on me and I was totally swepted into its world. The latter half of its run lacked the excitement and pop of the earlier episodes but was lovely nevertheless. I’m not annoyed that the drama stuck with the Seol Chan-Se Yi-Sun Woo love and friendship triangle until the end since that was the main crux of the emotional narrative to begin with. Of course the drama could have done more and did things better, but I am strangely certain I’ll like the ending to come. New stills have been released showing Seol Chan serenading Se Yi in his bedroom singing her father’s song with his newly learned guitar skills courtesy of Ji Woong. Nice, and she better notice that he adorably framed her note and shone a spotlight on it. This was one of my favorite OTPs this year and I’m praying for a little bit more cuteness and skinship before these kids swan off to stage left after this Friday.

Hearing Se Yi say that she really likes Seol Chan, Sun Woo is very heartbroken. Seol Chan and Sun Woo’s mental battle continues. The kids of Color Bar practice even harder for their upcoming competition against All for One. Seol Chan helps the Color Bar kids. On the other hand, the PD interviewing the Color Bar kids about their personal lives finds out a very shocking truth about Se Yi….

Seol Chan gets a call from Sun Woo to come out to meet. Seol Chan thinks Sun Woo wants to talk about the performance he can’t do, but Sun Woo isn’t interested in that and wants to know why Seol Chan has been so shifty and awkward around him lately? Did Seol Chan do something he feels sorry about? Seol Chan stammers that he has nothing to be sorry about. Sun Woo is good with that, because he’s not given up yet and he’s not done.

Sun Woo gets a text from Na Na for their 7th date. They meet at a sporting goods store and she has him try on a shirt. He thinks it’s for him and suggests he make it herself instead, but its not for him.
