"School 2017" have many fresh faces, and the 3 main casts are gathering much excited anticipation from the viewers. Among the three, there's a face that is indeed fresh, yet somewhat familiar to our eyes! His name is Kim Jung-hyun. As you watched the first episode of "School 2017", were you wondering who he might be? If you are still struggling to recall his name, let me help you out here!

Let's take a look at this young actor with a handsome visual!


Actor Kim Jung-hyun debuted with the movie "Overman" in 2015. He played a High School Gymnast, who is lost between his dreams and harsh reality. Unlikely for a new actor, he managed to act his character very naturally, creating the image of youth with a broken heart. From this role, he received a good feedback, which was a pleasant beginning to his acting career.

"Incarnation of Jealousy"

Following, he appeared as actress Gong Hyo-jin's little brother in the drama "Incarnation of Jealousy". Many K-drama lovers recognize him from this wonderful drama, including me! From this drama, he's gotten quite a few attention from many different producers.

"Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People"

He started to get more fame and popularity starting with the drama, "Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People". In the drama, he took quite an important role, Mo-ri and proved his acting to the viewers! He was a villain but it was hard to hate him.

"Ice Bing-gu"

Again, in this drama, he received praises on his acting skills as viewers agreed he isn't a mediocre new actor, but an actor with a skill. He created yet another image with his character, Go Man-soo, the hopeless romantic.

"School 2017"

As "School 2017" launched, he is getting much attention and the expectation from the viewers is higher than ever for him. As the School Series have its legacy, he has a big shoes to fill. He plays the character Hyeon Tae-woon, a teenage boy going through his reckless puberty period where everything about him is cynical and rebellious.

From romance to historical, and now to youth drama! He is an actor like a sponge, absorbing every type of acting and characters he is given. We have high hope for this great new actor working his way up!
