The actress’s agency, Artist Company confessed to the media that the actress is currently reviewing the offer. But, according to some reports, she has joined the show.

School 2021 Release Date and Plot
Sadly, there is no specific date set for the release of School 2021. However, according to previous rumors, the drama will air in August 2021. In November 2020, KBS2 announced that they are planning to release the show in the second half of 2020. But, the plan has been canceled. The reason was to make changes in the script as they are trying to revamp it to make it better. Later, they confirmed that School 2021 will come out in the first half of 2021.
School 2021 tells the story of extraordinary students who attend a specialized school to achieve their goals and dreams. Rather than moving forward to go to college, they learn about things in the school itself. Moreover, they explore friendships, love, things they like and dislike in an intense environment. We are looking forward to seeing the students learning new things as they find love.
Doubtlessly, School 2021 is different than the previous versions. But, it will be equally entertaining. the production team previously told the audience that they will do their best to show us all a good drama.
Descriptions about other characters are not revealed at the moment. Also, the production status is unknown. So, we are not sure about when the drama will release. But, considering that August is approaching, we expect the team to drop all the details soon.
The show will telecast on KBS and Viki. So, the people living outside South Korea can access the show on Rakuten Viki. Until the show arrives, you can watch Kim Yo Han’s A Love So Beautiful here. Until then, keep reading, and we will make sure to update you with all the new information from the Kdrama world.
