As unpopular as the premise might be, it also has a lot of potential. Handling difficult student problems such as bullying, education costs, abortion and others means that there can be great value in the drama in terms of highlighting these social problems and giving a voice to the youth facing them. Being female-centric and not romance-focused also means other sides of women"s lives can have the spotlight and bring some much needed diversity.
The Korean drama industry has been lacking young talents for a while now. Idols are put to use due to their already acquired fame, but it is important for the industry to invest in newbie and rookie actors as well, since those have a sole focus and therefore bigger availability. These ladies have the chance to do well and become future options for adult characters. It is also refreshing for viewers to discover new actors.
"Seonam Girls High School Investigators" does not have very exciting promotional material out at the moment. This makes the channel"s investment in its show a bit of a mystery. With an all teen cast and a hard to sell concept, it may very well be a short-lived or even disappointing piece. However, it also has a lot going for it in terms of quality and new concepts. Hopefully, the audiences and the channel will give it their best shot.
