School 2015: Who Are You Review

Rating : 5 out of 5

I just finished watching this drama, and this series was good enough to make me miss my high school memories (a lit bit). It took me only 5 days to finish, because the ending of each episode makes me curious (its addicted lol). School 2015 is a drama that contains a lot of emotions. I really love this teen drama started from the synopsis, the role, the soundtrack and everything.  I give double thumbs up for the producer of this drama. It’s so great! I highly recommend you watch this drama; you can watch it on YouTube too with English subtitles on!

Today’s review will be special, because i am going to talk so much about the drama and i will give you a lot of spoilers. Let’s discover it together and discuss it here.

INFO

Who Are You: School 2015 is a teen South Korean television series, starring Kim So Hyun, Yook Sung Jae and Nam Joo Hyuk. School 2015 is focusing on the real high school student’s situation about bullying. I would say that, this series is a one complete package that will show you how much struggle high school students are. I personally really enjoyed watching the teen series rather than the historical one.

School 2015 aired on April 27 – June 16, 2015 with 16 episodes in total and 60 minutes each. Directed by Baek Sang Hoon and Kim Sung Yoon. According to my research, Thailand is going to remake the series in 2020 by starring Perawat Sangpotirat and Tipnaree Weerawatnodom.

Kim So Hyun was born June 4, 1999 at Australia. She began her career when she was 7 years old, as an actress and gained public attention for playing as villainous young queen to be in Moon Embracing the Sun in 2012.

He also starred on We Got Married variety show with Red Velvet’s Joy (Soon, I will watch this show). He won the Best Couple Award with Kim So Hyun on KBS Drama Awards (Oh, I shipped this couple!)

PLOT

Eun Bi is a girl who lives at the Love House, an orphanage in Tongyeong. She was bullied at her school by a gang of mean girls, led by Kang So Young (Cho Soo Hyang). Eun Bi and Eun Byul (Both played by Kim So Hyun) are identical twins, separated after Eun Byul is adopted at the age of 5. Both girl lives in two different situations and has different personality. Eun Byul studies at the most prestigious private high school in Seoul, Sekang High School. Eun Byul is the older sister; she is sarcastic and secretive while Eun Bi is soft hearted person. 

Han Yi An is Eun Byul’s best friend since they were kids. After all these years, Han Yi An has a secret feeling towards Eun Byul.

Go Tae Kwang is the son of Sekang High School’s director. His life is full of riches, but he hasn’t had enough care from his parents, because both parents are separated since he was a kid. He was known as a troublemaker in school, and his father described him as a crazy and problematic child and so his father was sending him to the mental hospital.

The matter began to rise when Eun Byul mysteriously disappeared and Eun Bi decided to end her life by jumping off a bridge.
