"Dream High 2" Cast to Be Made Up of Trainees

The success of KBS drama "Dream High" definitely has many fans of the hit show on their toes in anticipation for the second season. But producers seem to be taking the drama in a new direction, as they've revealed on October 26 that the new cast will be picked from current trainees!

The drama is still co-produced by Key East Entertainment and JYP Entertainment, and instead of bringing back the original cast, the two companies have decided to bring forth their talented trainees to create a new cast of rising stars.

"We'll be using the talents amongst our trainees, and they're currently undergoing missions to begin their auditions. By next month, we'll have the cast list ready," officials of the drama disclosed. As for the original cast, they revealed, "They'll be making cameo appearances at the most."

Fans of Bae Yong Joon and Park Jin Young can also look forward to the two back and acting with the new cast, as it was also revealed that although they won't have a lot of screentime, they will be taking on characters of bigger impact.

Filming will begin in December, and the drama will prepare for broadcast in January. The first season of "Dream High" involved some of the hottest idol stars in the industry, including 2PM's Woo Young and Taecyeon, IU, and miss A's Suzy.

Producers of KBS‘s ‘Dream High 2‘ have revealed that filming for the new season will begin with fresh faces starting this December.

The first season, which debuted earlier this year, was a hit amongst fans with hot stars like Taecyeon, Wooyoung, Suzy, and Kim Soo Hyun. A lot of attention has been focused on the new cast, by co-producers Key East and JYP Entertainment have been keeping it under wraps, hinting that they’ll be fresh faces picked straight from their group of trainees.

On October 26th, a representative revealed, “There are a lot of talents amongst the trainees. We recently gave them several missions to carry out and have begun the audition process. We’re sure that the cast will be finalized by next month.”

In regards to the original cast making an appearance, they added, “The season is scheduled to begin airing in January so the schedule is up in the air. If anything, they’ll be making cameo appearances.”

Bae Yong Joon and J.Y. Park, however, will be making an appearance for sure. “This drama won’t be focused on them, though. The plot will revolve around the new stars so we haven’t finalized their screen time or anything. Even so, they’ll be characters that will definitely make an impact on the plot.”

Another acting heavyweight joins the top stars in Bae Yong Joon’s management agency, Key East Entertainment. It was reported that actress Im Soo Jung, most recently seen in the Cannes entry “Come Rain, Come Shine” with Hyun Bin has signed with Key East. Im Soo Jung was formerly under the management of Sidus HQ.

“I feel that I need to grow as an actor, and challenge myself in the various aspects of the entertainment industry,” the actress stated.

“We will support Im Soo Jung so she may show different sides of herself in different projects,” Key East said in a statement, according to local news agencies.

Im Soo Jung debuted in 2001, on the drama “School 4.” Even then, she has already gained recognition for outstanding acting abilities. She starred with So Ji Sub in 2004’s “Sorry I Love You,” but has been more active in films.

She has gained a reputation for being a strong dramatic actress and has worked with some of the country’s A-list actors. Along with Moon Geun Young, she was one of the eponymous sisters in 2003’s “A Tale of Two Sisters,” the first Korean film to be screened in American theaters. She played a cancer-stricken young woman opposite Kim Rae Won in “...ing.” She similarly played a terminally ill patient in 2007’s “Happiness” and was Rain’s leading lady in the offbeat “I’m a Cyborg but That’s OK.” Im Soo Jung departed from her usual dramatic fare by taking the lead role opposite Gong Yoo in the 2010 romantic comedy “Finding Mr. Destiny.”

Im Soo Jung’s move to Key East Entertainment brings her under the same management as Choi Kang Hee, Lee Ji Ah, Joo Ji Hoon, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Soo Hyun, So Yi Hyun and Wang Ji Hye, among others.
