Lee Hyun Jin, who plays the amazingly talented Ki Young, hinted that there might be another love line for Gyu Won in the coming episodes.
Lee Hyun Jin appeared in episode 3 as the actor who had too much of a stage fright to actually perform, and therefore dropped out of the school. However, Song Chang Ui insisted that he come back and participate in the school’s 100th anniversary festival. For this particular role, Lee had to take vocal lessons and even shed about 8kg. (What is up with actors thinking they need to lose more weight to be a performing artist!?)
Anyways – he also hinted that his character might become attracted to Gyu Won, as she’s talented on the gayageum and draws his attention. However, nothing is for sure as of yet, as he could just be attracted to her talent and not the girl. Yet.
Either way, I’m expecting more interaction between him and Gyu Won then, and it will make the already complicated rectangle into a pentagon. Amazing how Gyu Won manages to get all three men.
One thing I certainly love about this series is that they managed to get truly talented people for students. Woori can dance and sing so well, and Lee Hyun Jin – pfft, did he really need vocal lessons?! He’s probably got some raw talent there! I don’t even need to get into Kang Min Hyuk, Jung Yong Hwa or Park Shin Hye, because they all have proven their skills through CN Blue and You’re Beautiful. The talent on this show is the one thing that continually impresses me.
On top of that, I love that Gyu Won is a no-frills kind of girl. She’s not disillusioned into thinking that she likes Shin, even though I’m sure the seeds are planted. She still dislikes him, and is more interested in his relationship with So Yi Hyun than anything. Gyu Won also doesn’t treat Director Suk Hyun as anyone special, even though he clearly favors her. Their comfortable vibe makes me want to ship them together. At the same time, I am really itching to see Shin start doing things because of Gyu Won, since he’s been so adamant about not doing anything for her sake.
So Gyu Won’s potential relationship with Ki Young could be another one like hers and Suk Hyun’s. If she ends up having a crush on Ki Young though, I would die laughing – because she clearly chose the better option. (Student closer to her age who’s way more talented than Lee Shin and has a similarly legendary status at school. Plus he’s cute to boot.)
