Woohoo, some luck in drama casting these days. Daniel Choi, has apparently signed on to join Jang Na Ra in School, season 5. School was a popular series in the 1990s, having 4 seasons till 2002. A lot of our favourite popular Korean celebrities participated in the seasons of School back in the 1990s, with stars like Ha Ji Won, Choi Kang Hee, Jang Hyuk, Lee Yo Won, Jo Hyun Jae, Kim Min Hee, Lee Dong Wook, Jo In Sung, Gong Yoo, Im Soo Jung, Kim Rae Won and so on. Basically, half of the celebrities you crush on today, probably appeared in a season of School before. School basically revolves around the lives of students in school.
Anyway, Jang Nara confirmed her casting in the drama weeks ago, as a teacher, and her costar from Baby Faced Beauty, a show in which i enjoyed, will be joining her in this remake of School.. Or what you call, the season 5 of School. Daniel Choi will be taking the role of Kang Se Chan, a lecturer, who was an English teacher. His charismatic, and is a talented speaker. He is a great teacher, and strives to be an upright teacher to guide his students to have a good future.
School will air after OhLala Couple, which means, probably in about a months time. It’ll be taking the Monday-Tuesday timeslot, on KBS. That really sounds good to me, since this time, there won’t be any huge age gap between Daniel Choi and Jang Na Ra! They were cute enough with that age gap in Baby Face Beauty, and without, I’m sure it’ll rock even more. Furthermore, Jang Na Ra looks so young… She can even pass off well as a high school kid, so letting her be a young (hopefully) school teacher this time will be great for me! Also, Lee Jong Seok from High Kick 3 has joined the cast as well, and that makes me delighted, for I loved him playing that stupid high school kid in High Kick 3. I’m rather worried though, since it’s a drama revolving around the kids in school, rather than the lecturers… So Nara and Daniel might not be the leads? Or maybe they will be the leads in name? Not too sure about how much of a part the teachers can play here, since i only ever watched one season of School in full, watching only a little of the rest of the seasons… Anyway, I hope they’ll get their deserved screen time.
Let’s hope this will be a good show for me to sit back and relax!
