A second season of the addictive drama Dream High has been announced. It will air in January of 2012 and will have a whole new cast. My thoughts on this are mixed, because I did love the first season, but mostly due to the characters. I'm not sure if I could take six new Idols coming in; especially as Idols can be very hit-and-miss acting wise. Hell, some of the cast of Dream High only became 'good', acting wise, toward the middle or end of the drama.

Higher-ups from KBS had this to say: “Whether we’ll be casting rookie idols like ‘Dream High’ and ‘Jungle Fish,’, or whether we’ll be going through an audition process is still up for discussion. There’s a high probability that the season will begin airing in January of 2012, just in time for winter break.”

So what might change for “Dream High Season 2″? The representative did not reveal much, but said, “The original format of ‘Dream High’ was great, so we’re planning to carry it over.”

Again, I'm not so sure how I feel about this, as part of the fun of the first season was the misfits becoming stronger and the craziness of their teachers. I guess that the second season will take place in 2012, when the original characters from season one are rising stars. Wonder if they'll cameo?

Dream High came to an end today, and though there is a special tomorrow, the stories of the characters have ended as well. I think its safe to say that everyone got a happy ending. In 2018, everyone appears to be - more or less - where they want to be.

Dream High is K )

I have enjoyed Dream High - it's a sweet drama about teenagers finding themselves and developing their dreams. While everyone else seems completely invested in the SD/HM/JG triangle, and I always about Pil Sook/Jason. I basically watch for their cute fluff and the development of their relationship. Cute! (Sometimes you need some fluffy scenes of two cute teenagers falling in love.) That's where this video comes in - a short, fluffy, video about Jason falling for Pil Sook.

I'm in love with this show. It pains me to know there are only seven episodes and one special left. I want spoilers, but just can't go to Soompi - that place has turned into a JG/HM vs. SD/HM battle ground. Personally, I don't care who - if anyone - Hye Mi ends up with. Though, if I had to pick, I'd go with Sam Dong.

As for the mysterious K )

Also - remember that picture that the reporter showed Principal Jung in episode one? It had all six kids in it, and they all looked more or less friendly with one another. Pil Sook looked happy, Jason was smiling, Sam Dong was his usual self, and Hye Mi, Jin Gook, and Baek Hee looked a bit snotty, but they didn't seem angry or annoyed to be in the photograph. So. . .in the next few episodes, will the six all become friends?

Already, I see signs of BH and HM becoming frenemies. BH has told HM that it isn't any fun beating HM, unless HM fights back. So. . .I could see the two becoming life long frenemies, always competing against one another. I'm just wondering how the six will come together )

Does anyone else find it telling that The Misfits )

Look at Dream High using symbolism in its episodes. Anyway, just my thoughts.
walkwithheroes: [Hong Gil Dong] ([Yuukan Club] Chemistry)
This week Gloria ends. After 50 episodes and 27 weeks (it didn't air two weeks in a row thanks to sporting events) this weekend drama comes to an end tomorrow. I have to admit that I've really loved this show and its characters - mostly DA and YS. So, I'm excited to watch tomorrow and see how it ends for everyone involved.

My Princess is starting to enter its dramatic phase, so I'm interested to see where that goes. Though, I'm mostly watching for the OTP.

Dream High has become an obsession and with episode eight, we enter the turning point of the drama. This is a weird drama for me, because I am eight years out of high school, and this is a high school drama - yet, I find myself drawn to the characters. I find myself thinking: "I've felt the same way recently". That may be because this is my last year at university and I'm starting to think about the 'real' world; while the characters in this drama are fighting for their dramas. I'm thinking episode eight has a time jump of some sort, because of the newest promo pictures - skinny PS - so that's something that I'm looking forward to.

The wonderful ockoala has put up the written preview for episode eight of Dream High. It will air next week, as tomorrow the station is playing a big sports match of some sort. With episode eight, the drama hits its half-way mark, and things are being to heat up.

Being Human begins its third series tomorrow night. I'm excited, but not overly so. I know that many times the first episode of a new series/season is just set-up, so not too much happens. (BTW: has anyone else seen the ads for the U.S. remake? What is with the U.S. remaking all these British shows at once: Shameless, Skins, Being Human - why not just show the originals? The Sy-fy channel shows Merlin - they couldn't show Being Human?)

Also - I watched the first episode of the MTV Skins and thought it was alright. I give it a C; not bad but not great. Some of the acting isn't very good, but I see potential in some of the characters and actors. It was rather tame compared to the U.K. version - even though they used the same script - so I'm slightly confused with all the anger over it from the conservative groups. (They like The Secret Life of the American Teenager - a show all about teen sex, but not this?)

I am all caught up with both My Princess and Dream High:

I think MP is really a marathon type show; it is very fluffy and addictive because of the interaction of the OTP. The plot is slowly starting to come together, which I like. But, the Secondary Female is truly just evil - I want to punch her in the face. The sister isn't much better. Why is she so jealous; even before Seol was shown to be the missing Princess, Dan was mean to her. I want to know why.

Dream High is also rather addictive, and like My Princess, would be a fun drama to marathon. Surprisingly, I'm not shipping much in this drama (just Jason/Pil Sook) - the shipper and character wars on soompi are crazy. I also like all the characters, even the "evil" ones. I'm more interested in the interactions and friendships. The storyline is a bit thin, and the acting isn't always solid, but I like these characters.

I'm still watching Gloria; I'm up to episode forty-six with subtitles. I love the way everything is coming together. But, I've had to stop going to Soompi - they are all about JJ/KS and have to regard for the rest of the storylines and characters. I like JJ/KS, but I do care about the other storylines and would like to discuss that sometimes. Anyway - I like the way the show is wrapping up and the way the character arcs are all slowly ending.

The new Japanese television season has started, but I'm not sure what to watch. It seems most of the dramas are crime/mystery/cop based, and I'm really not in the mood for that. For my Japanese viewing, I'm more in the mood for something more romantic, as its been a while since I've watched a good romantic Japanese drama. But, I'm not interested in Fuyu no Sakura (she's having an affair; even if she doesn't know it, it's still not my thing) or Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta (I'm not a Toda Erika fan). I don't think I'll be watching any new Japanese dramas this season.

So - what is everyone else watching?
walkwithheroes: [Hong Gil Dong] ([Honey and Clover] Tired&Inspired)
I like 'em.

Maybe I should expand on that )

As for My Princess - its shaping up to be a really well-written and well-acted romantic comedy.

Kim Tae Hee is brilliant as Seol - the character could be cliche, but she gives Seol humor and heart. Song Seung Hun - who knew he was funny? The two have amazing chemistry together, and I'm enjoying the way Seol and Hae Young tease one another, while dancing around all sorts of feelings - both good and bad. Jung Woo is a nice man, and I love the way he and Hae Young interact - it's like they are fighting over both women and yet. . .I sometimes wonder if they'll start making out. Plus, I love that Jung Woo is really fond of Seol and without Yoon Joo, he'd probably go for her. As it is now, he is slowly falling for her. Yoon Joo is a secondary, rich, bitchy woman of old, but there are hints of more under the surface. Or not )

My Princess is a great show, and I'm slowly becoming addicted. Dream High is also an addictive drama. This isn't a good time for me to be addicted to dramas, and yet. . . I am. Crap.
