While it was previously reported that Kim Yo Han was considering a role in KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “School 2020,” today his participation was confirmed!
On February 4, Kim Yo Han’s agency stated, “Kim Yo Han is confirmed to participate in the KBS 2TV mini-series ‘School 2020.'”
“School 2020” is the eighth drama in the “School” series. Kim Yo Han will star in the role of Kim Tae Jin, a former taekwondo athlete that won a bronze medal as a junior representative in the Korean National Sports Festival. After a severe ankle injury and the failure of his father’s business, he quit taekwondo and transferred to a vocational high school. Although he speaks and acts like a grown adult, he is an innocent high schooler who does not know what to do when with the girl he likes.
Before his debut as an idol, Kim Yo Han was a reserve national athelete in taekwondo himself and a two-time champion at the National Youth Sports Festival. This history in the sport made him almost a perfect fit for the role of Kim Tae Jin.
“School 2020” will begin filming in March, with the drama set to premiere in August later this year.
