With last week’s premier of My Love From Another Star, I thought it was only fitting to go back in time a bit and see what our new favorite bias, Kim Soo Hyun, was up to before he became the world’s most adorable alien; which is why this week’s drama is none other than the ever popular high school musical, Dream High.
Airing on KBS in 2011, Dream High tells the story of six exceptionally gifted music students at Kirin Art High School and the journey they take as they pursue their dreams in the hopes of becoming super-star. If the basic plot of Dream High isn’t enough to convince you to watch, the all-star cast should do the trick. Starring Kim Soo Hyun, Ok Taec Yeon, Suzy, IU, Ham Eun Jung, Jang Woo Young and a whole host of cameos, Dream High is sure to provide a bias for everyone! When you have a cast of this caliber, in a setting as perfect as a music school, you know you’re guaranteed a killer OST and Dream High doesn’t disappoint. The musical numbers scattered throughout the seventeen episodes are an absolute treat and without a doubt, the best part of this drama.
If you’re a fan of K-Pop, musicals, high school dramas or just plain fun, you’re going to want to watch (or re-watch) Dream High. It’s one of those rare feel-good dramas that leaves you feeling that as long as you set your mind to it and are willing to work for it, you can make even the most impossible dreams come true.
