I’ve loved Seo In Guk in all his projects that I’ve seen — he was simply adorable in Answer Me 1997 (a drama filled with lots of heart, warmth and nostalgia) and he was charming as the second lead in last year’s Master’s Sun. He has also acted in long weekend drama Rascal Sons that just dropped off the radar and recently seen in 5 episode short drama series Another Parting. He also appeared in movie No Breathing with Lee Jong Suk. And now there is the happy news of him returning to the cable network that catapulted him to new heights of popularity aka tvN. He has confirmed to appear in the follow-up drama of Witch’s Romance and the title is High School King, though it is a working title which might change or modify later on. He has been cast opposite Lee Ha Na, who last appeared in 2009 drama Triple with Lee Jung Jae. Wow, that is one long hiatus from small screen. Anyway, the drama is about a high school student (played by Seo In Guk) who ends up pretending to be an adult executive at an IT firm as he needs to substitute for his hyung there (so kind of like You’re Beautiful where Park Shin Hye had to cross dress in place of her brother in a boy band!) Lee Ha Na stars as a temporary employee at the same company. This might be another member of the noona-romance deluge we are getting this year. tvN’s Monday-Tuesday slot should be called a noona-romance-slot as the preceding shows were all about it—I Need Romance 3 and currently airing Witch’s Romance and partly, the show seems to be sketching a workplace scenario as well. The whole plot sounds quirky and potentially hilarious with the hero hiding his real identity in his office as well as high school shenanigans; and it’s tvN after all, so we can expect quality and freshness. High School King premieres in June.
