While the names of Kang Sora, Jinwoon, Jiyeon, and Hyorin are well known to the industry, JB and Park Seo Joo are relatively new. Its been revealed that JB was the winner of the 5th JYP Auditions, and that he possesses great dance and vocal abilities. Park Seo Joo, meanwhile, is a rookie actor who previously made his debut in the movie, Perfect Game.
Dream High 2 Poster
The main cast were divided into two groups, which many interpreted to mean that one group is more privileged than the other. The bottom group is comprised of 2AMs Jinwoon and actress Kang Sora, who were hinted to be characters from a rough background (see here and here for still-cuts from their introductory scenes) earlier.
Meanwhile, the other group is comprised of SISTARs Hyorin, T-aras Jiyeon, and two male rookies named JB (JYP Entertainment) and Park Seo Joon (KeyEast Entertainment).
The haughty looks they toss at Jinwoon and Kang Sora (who volley with scowls of their own) seem to lend credence to the theory that their characters are talented, but arrogant.
Upcoming drama “Dream High 2,” the highly anticipated sequel to last year’s hit “Dream High,” finally unveiled its entire cast. Earlier today, CJ Media released a new poster for the drama. “Dream High 2” has built up hype by keeping quiet about two other cast members that will be part of the group “Eden” in the drama. The released poster has drawn a lot of interest because it features rookie actors JB and Key East Entertainment's Park Seo Joon, the two members who have been veiled until now. The top four in the poster - SISTAR'S Hyorin, JB, Park Seo Joon, and T-ara's Ji Yeon will play the Korea's best idol stars, while 2AM's Jung Jin Woon and Kang Sora at the bottom will play the two knucklehead music students.
JB plays JB, a perfectionist and talented idol, while Park Seo Joon takes on the role of Si Woo, a good-looking, devilish idol who can easily make a girl's heart flutter with his killer smile. Park Ji Yeon plays Lian, a member of the popular girl group Hershe, who also aspires to one day be the "Queen of the Cannes Film Festival," but lacks the acting ability to do so. Hyorin's Nana has a natural talent for singing and a very cool and relaxed personality. Kang So Ra takes on the role of Shin Hae Sung, an awkward student from an unfortunate background who learns music solely through books and writing. Lastly, Jin Woon plays Jin Yoo Jin, a troubled student, who's full of himself, aspiring to be a rock star
Park Jin Young will reprise his role as one of the teachers at Kirin Arts High School, which is in dire financial situation and in danger of shutting down. The second season will showcase the fierce music/dance battles between the top idol stars, who are about to have nervous breakdowns, and the school's troubled students. The upcoming drama also stars Ailee, After School's Gahee, Kim Ji Soo, Choi Yeo Jin , and others.
Urg, this is one timeslot battle that makes me terribly conflicted, since Dream High 2 premieres the same day as Shut Up: Flower Boy Band. Both are youth-targeted, set in high school, and center around music. Both have some appealing cast members amidst rookies and unknown entities, and both have the potential to be over-the-top and cheesy, or total crack. Ones got a bit more flash and polish (Dream High 2 with its franchise, budget, and massive idol cast list) while the others a bit scrappier (Shut Up, with the band of grungy lost boys at its core).
On the other hand, I do love that I get to say, completely sincerely and without a hint of sarcasm, that this dilemma is one that may be best solved, literally, with a dance-off.
As reported earlier, the students of Kirin Arts High School were revealed to be actress Kang Sora, 2AMs Jinwoon, T-aras Jiyeon, and SISTARs Hyorin. Joining them are new names JB, Park Seo Joon, Yoo So Young, Kim Ji Soo, Ailee, Jr, and Jung Yeon Joo.
Meanwhile, the teachers will be played by J.Y. Park, Kim Jung Tae, Kwon Tae Hyo, Choi Yeo Jin, and After Schools Kahi.
The drama team has also revealed some new character profiles, such as Park Soon Dong (Yoo So Young) and Park Hong Joo (Kim Ji Soo). Park Soon Dong is a dorky girl who believes that she can communicate with ghosts, while Park Hong Joo is a poet whos perfect in every way, except for his face.
Earlier today, CJ Media has released its last official poster for the highly anticipated series “Dream High 2.” Two posters, featuring the six main leads and the entire cast, released last week have stirred a lot of interest and anticipation online. This last poster also features the six leads of the drama – Park Seo Joon, JB, T-ara’s Park Ji Yeon, Kang So Ra, 2AM’s Jung Jin Woon , and SISTAR’s Hyorin – displaying their character’s personalities through their expressions. Park Seo Joon, JB, and Park Ji Yeon look cool and confident, just like their characters; while Kang Sora, Jung Jin Woon, and Hyorin have slightly goofy expressions and smiles.
Park Seo Joon, JB, Park Ji Yeon, and Hyorin take on the roles of Si Woo, JB, Lian, and Nana respectively - four of Korea’s best idol stars. Jung Jin Woon and Kang Sora play Jin Yoo Jin and Shin Hae Sung – two knucklehead music students.
Si Woo (Park Seo Joon) is a good-looking, devilish idol who can easily make a girl’s heart flutter with his killer smile. JB (JB) is a talented perfectionist with a hint of arrogance. Lian (Park Ji Yeon) is a member of popular girl group Hershe, who aspires to one day be the “Queen of the Cannes Film Festival,” but lacks the acting ability to do so. Nana (Hyorin) is a cool and relaxed girl who has a natural talent for singing. Jin Yoon Jin (Jung Jin Woon) is a troubled student, who’s full of himself, aspiring to be a rock star. Shin Hae Sung (Kang So Ra) is an awkward student from an unfortunate background who learns music solely through books, writing, and effort.
