Good news: OMG Dream High Season 2 is coming!!Hopefully it come true
KBS is currently in the works of finalizing a deal for another season of its hit drama series “Dream High.” According to KBS officials, “Dream High” is already in the early planning stages for its second season, under the goal of airing it as early as Jan. 2012.
“We are planning to produce the second season of ‘Dream High.’ We can’t reveal any detailed plans at this point as nothing has been confirmed, but the overall format will be similar to the first season and perhaps we’ll be able to air it from early next year,” an official from KBS told local media. It’s unclear if the star-studded cast of Season One, including Park Jin Young, Bae Yong Joon, miss-A’s Suzy, 2PM’s Taecyeon and Woo Young, and IU will star again in Season Two. But it’s reported that Key East Entertainment and JYP Entertainment will jointly work again for the production of this season, raising hopes for another show with a group of idol star appearances.
Before the first season of “Dream High” got aired, many questioned its quality of acting and storyline, as it involved a lot of idol stars with little acting experience. But as the show went on, the idol star cast displayed improved acting skills and the plot turned out to be quite interesting, resulting in the show garnering an average TV rating of 15.7%, which was the highest rating in the Monday-Tuesday prime time slots.
Following the news of “Dream High: Season Two,” many netizens have shown interest with high hopes of seeing it as soon as possible. Some said the first season ended too early while others were curious to see who the next cast will involve. Many idol stars are talented enough to do both acting and singing these days; Super Junior’s Siwon, Big Bang’s TOP, MBLAQ’s Lee Joon, former 2PM member Jay Park, and KARA’s Goo Hara have all made or are planning to make acting debuts. Who would you like to see in the second season of “Dream High”?

This is the story of youths becoming top global stars which could take place in the not-so-distant future.
You may have the looks, talent, personality and even a respectable private life, but it's still tough to rise as a successful star. Here is a group of youths who are still up for this daring challenge.
They all have a single weakness barring them becoming the ultimate top star. The weaknesses wouldn't be an issue or an inconvenience to an ordinary person, but they are detrimental to a pop star.
One girl sings superbly but her appearance is not the best to stand before the TV camera.
Another student has the looks and musical talent but has a distorted, prejudiced view of the world.
There are others who have amazing talent but an unsophisticated fashion sense.
Each of these students have managed to pass the exam and enter Kirin Arts High School to begin headlong the challenge of becoming a top superstar.
The characters maximize their unique talents and overcome their weaknesses.
They fall, trip and fail which only boosts their confidence.
The ridicule and scorn they are used to will one day turn into cheers and support.
The underdogs and the losers will fly up high and their story will be an inspiration to young viewers.
