Wondering why it’s all JYP artists? Well, it’s because it’s a JYP production. Magic School is a web drama which will revolve around a group of young people, their dreams, aspirations and struggles, with a twist as they become part of a magical school.
GOT7’s Jinyoung (Legend of the Blue Sea) will be playing a teenager who hasn’t dated his whole life; Yoon Park (Introverted Boss) as a man with a cold facade but hides a sad heart; and 2PM’s Nichkhun as a poor guy with a warm personality. Jinyoung and Yoon Park have been steadily doing acting gigs and quite delivered a good performance, so I’m more curious to see how Nichkhun will fare as an actor.
Joining the cast are veteran actor Ryu Seung-soo (Beautiful Mind) as the school master and Shin Eun-soo (Legend of the Blue Sea) as his daughter. Shin Eun-soo and Jinyoung already worked together in Legend of the Blue Sea as the young Jun Ji-hyun and Lee Min-ho, so I wonder if they’ll continue the loveline here.
Magic School is set to be released in the latter part of the year.
