"Cheer Up!" (K-Drama Review)

PLOT:

Set at the elite Sevit High School in Seoul, the drama follows the lives of five students as they attempt to survive in a vicious environment where academic elitism takes place. Kang Yeon-doo (Jung Eun-ji) is the leader of outcast street dance club "Real King", a group of students who band together because of their poor academic performance, whereas Kim Yeol (Lee Won-keun) is the President of "Baek Ho", an elite club composed of students from the top 5 percent. When the two clubs are forcibly merged to create a cheerleading squad, the two put their differences aside for the benefit of their clubs. EPISODES: 12

FAVORITE CHARACTER:

Kim Yeol (Lee Won-Keun) had to be my favorite. The first time he smiled, I fell in love! He's so cute (his smile kills me everytime), funny, extremely smart and very caring towards his best friend. When he starts to tear up in one of the episodes, I get sad because I can't hug him through my phone. So I just cry for him. He dislikes his father and falls for Kang Yeon-Doo who is in ranked bet low in academics but is an amazing dancer. I could give a lot of reasons why I love this character but all I know is he's perfect. Did I mention he's 27 and is playing a high schooler yet doesn't look 27 at all. They choose the right man to play Kim Yeol.
I felt so bad for Ha Joon because he grew up with a father who would abuse him if he didn't do something he was told, if his grades went down even a little he would be beaten to the point he didn't even want to live anymore. He hurt himself a few times which is sad and his dad doesn't even know it until Kim Yeol tells him later on in the show. He falls in love with Kang Yeon-Doo and she's already in love with Kim Yeol. So he just keeps it a secret from Kim Yeol which causes arguments between them later because Kim Yeol finds out. It's even more heartbreaking that Ha Joon watches as they kiss in the hospital. But he faces his father and stands up to him in the last episode. He faces the facts that he has to move on from Yeon-Doo and isn't depressed anymore in the end.
Soo A was a very aggravating character because she pretends to be Kang Yeon-Doo's friend in the beginning, then uses her to help herself become number 1 in academics and hurts many other people along the way like Kim Yeol. She makes it seem as though he cheated on a test so she can become number 1 and she pushes Kang Yeon-Doo down some stairs, Kim Yeol catches her and he ends up badly hurt. She realizes in the end that she has made many mistakes and apologies by leaving a letter which is strange in everyone's eyes because it seems like a suicide note. They all go to search for her and she almost gets hit by a car but Dong Jae saves her even though he can't touch anyone because of his disorder but it's finally cured after he saves her. She takes the punishment given and becomes a good person in the end. Also ends up liking Dong Jae!
I ship Kang Yeon-Doo and Kim Yeol so hard, they are so cute and compatible. Sorry Ha Joon and sorry for everyone who got second lead syndrome which I rarely get. I love how these two are so playful with each other and how cute they are together! I cried so hard when Kim Yeol got hurt after catching Kang Yeon-Doo even though I knew nothing bad was going to happen. My favorite seen from the whole show was when Kim Yeol was asked, "Who are you dating now?" He responds with, "There's a girl I want to kiss." Kang Yeon-Doo blushes and Kim Yeol smiles. It's so sweet!!!!

OVERALL REVIEW:

I loved this show so much, it was so entertaining, funny and super cute with the main couple. The OST'S were so beautiful, my favorite was Sassy Go Go! Each character was interesting and had unique personalities and lifestyles. The touching scenes brought me to tears which I love when a show can do that to me. I love high school dramas but their aren't that many other ones that I haven't watched.

RATE:

10/10 - It had no flaws in my eyes, it was absolutely perfect and adorable. I recommend it to anyone that loves romance or high school dramas because it's so worth watching!!! @kpopandkimchi (another one of my favorite high school dramas) @poojas @sherrysahar @netchtiBates @SeoInHan @russelroche47 @Priscilla @JamiMilsap @JustinaNguyen @sosoaloraine23 @TLeahEdwards @JaxomB @kskatie82 @hyunsaeng638 @luna1171 @Valerie816 @merryjayne13 @humairaa @petname83 @Kamiamon @NickySerban @IMNII FEEL FREE TO TAG ANY OF YOUR VINGLE FRIENDS!
