KBS 2TV Mon-Tue drama ‘School 2013’ continues to draw a huge following, and the official website has now updated its character relationship chart on December 13th, signaling their attention to focus on the ‘friendship’ and ‘rival’ storylines for its students, but doing away with the ‘romance’ element.
The drama has gotten off to a great start by touching on smoking among students, rise in school violence (bullies), loss of authority among teachers, and other real issues in today’s society. Go Nam Soon (Lee Jong Suk) and Song Ha Kyung (Park Sae Young) was actually going to have a romance storyline written for them in the coming episodes, but many viewers have voiced their opinion that there wasn’t really a need for romance for a school drama. To cater to their viewers’ requests, the production team finally came to a decision to do away with Nam Soon and Ha Kyung’s love line.
The production team expressed, “‘School 2013’ will go to even greater details to reveal more true stories in the school environment in the upcoming episodes. So with regards to that, we have actually been deliberating over whether there was a need to add in a love line.”
Meanwhile, the conclusion of episode 4 this past Tuesday saw Oh Jung Ho (Kwak Jung Wook) beating up on Park Heung Soo (Kim Woo Bin), and led to Nam Soon retaliating by whacking Oh Jung Ho back crazily. With more than meets the eye behind Nam Soon’s sudden loss of composure, viewers are anticipating for next week’s episode even more.
