My Reaction

Seems like the directors are going in for an all idol main cast here….

Thank God this little cute guy has some acting experience unlike his leading lady who has never acted before in a drama or even a web drama.

An all cast by idols is a risky move, I will be watching out for how the public will react to this news, but I do feel like something’s fishy, I think this is the first time they pick idol leads for a popular instalment of School series…

Lead roles are not a game and you must be very careful with whom you pick for the role because if they suck, no matter how good your script is, its all a waste.

Lets hope that the production team was in conscious when making this decision, and lets wish the best of luck for this little cutie in his BIG acting debut.

How do you feel about the casting choice?
