There’s a big chance that your K-drama friends have already watched this piece. Whether you’re a big fan or not of So Hyun, Sungjae, and/or Joo Hyuk, I highly recommend to you to watch Who Are You: School 2015.

My thoughts

You might’ve think that the plot of School 2015 is something cliché but it will surely shock you with its plot twists and story flow. This is actually one of my favorite 2015 dramas that I can’t still move on from until now. Five years has passed but I still love it. Honestly, the emotions I’ve felt when watching it the first time are still familiar to me.

A bit spoiler for you, bes, but the way how the story flows and the events happen are the good sides of this drama. You will be able to laugh, cry, and feel angry towards the antagonists in no time. I can still remember how many times I shouted to tell some of the characters about my thoughts as if they can hear me.

I actually didn’t expect few things about it, such as how the characters handled the situation; how genuine Taekwang (portrayed by Sungjae) until the end; what happened to the antagonist; and the decisions of Eun Byul and Eun Bi (portrayed by So Hyun) from the climax until its last part.

If you will ask me, I have a different expected ending for the drama compared to what was served to us. It is one of the reasons why I can’t move on from this. However, I know to myself that the ending is realistic. While, the other reason is the bravery of the twins. I really admire the both of them for choosing to be strong since the very moment they were separated and have known the situation. I also love how they stand still and be brave despite the bullying they’ve experienced.

Other reasons to watch

Aside from what were mentioned, there are still more reasons why you should watch School 2015. First is the fact that all the actors and actresses of this drama have incomparable acting skills. You will surely get mad on the antagonist; yes, to the point that you want to go to the screen and help the protagonist. You will also fall in love with the second lead actor the way how many of us have fell for him. Additionally, you will also get inspired with life experiences and decisions of the twins.

Moreover, what you should also take note are the theme and lessons to learn from this drama. It tackles the common problem being faced by some students like bullying. School 2015 had properly shown how the people being bullied suffer mentally, emotionally, and physically. It also perfectly showed that bullies shouldn’t be tolerated. However, they also don’t deserve to be treated bad as they also need help.

Overall

Even if School 2015 broke my heart, I wouldn’t deny the fact that this made me laugh and realize a lot of things in life. It even lead me to knowing mental health more and choosing kindness despite rough situation. Other than that, it made me love So Hyun and Sungjae so much. I also appreciate Joo Hyuk and his part in this drama. So, add this to your list now, bes, or rewatch it and let’s talk about our feels on the comment section below!
