Who Are You: School 2015
Last watched episode: 6
Who Are You: School 2015 gets better with each episode, and I didn’t expect to love this Korean drama this much. The intrigue, the mystery, the relationships, and the character nuances make this high school drama interesting. It’s not as slice of life as School 2013, but it’s perfectly okay with me.
I just love Kim So-Hyun in this! For such a young age, she manages to portray two characters so differently. It’s not just the styling, but also with her acting. The little things such as posture and manner of speaking are so different for Go Eun-Byul and Go Eun-Bi. This actress will definitely go places!
As for my little OTP, Han YiAn has my heart. Gong Tae-Kwang is cute, but Han YiAn is my man lol. OMG. What am I supposed to do with this high school feels? I adored Nam Joo-Hyuk since I first saw him in Running Man, and I am loving him as Han YiAn. I’m pretty much hugging my pillow everytime he’s on screen! My heart breaks for him, and it beats for him, too. Heehee. I prefer boring, good boys over the weird and crazy ones. ♥ ♥ ♥ I’m not even sorry that I’m gushing this much.
Everytime the song Reset (by Tiger JK feat. Jinsil of Mad Soul Child) is played in his scenes, I die a little inside. It’s so breath-taking at times.
Speaking of Reset, I am loving the soundtrack! It perfectly encapsulates the pulsating rush of youth. The angst, the romance, the frustrations of what it feels like to be a teen—everything. The OST sounds rebellious at times, but it blends so well with the scenes.
It has been years (almost a decade now!) since I graduated from high school, but this drama somehow makes me relieve it all over again. Of course, I didn’t have a hidden twin nor did I experience bullying. All those Korean drama elements aside, the relationships and emotions in School 2015 feel very much real. While the drama focuses on Eun-Bi and her two boys, we still get to know the other students and what makes them tick. However, he mystery surrounding Eun-Byul and Eun-Bi makes this drama so intense!
We’re only on episode 6 and a lot of things—good and bad—can happen. It can go downhill from here, but I’m keeping my heads up and hoping that it manages to sustain the beat and rush till the very end. Thank ye, drama gods, for consistently churning out good dramas this year.
GAH GIMME EPISODE 7 NOW!
