School Drama series is definitely one of the most famous in the nation. Many actors got their big breaks after appearing in the classic series. From Lee Jong Suk to Kim Woo Bin to Kim Jung Hyun, all actors have appeared in the previous school series. Of course, the cast is changing this time. But, the plot will also be different from before in the 2021 version.
School 2021 drama will showcase the story of students attending a specialized high school. Instead of going to college, they will earn all the higher knowledge at the high school. Moreover, it will display how these students learn about love, friendship, true passions, and growing up in an intense environment.
