Daesung’s Drama “What’s Up” Finally Gets An Airdate!!

1 Dec

I cannot describe how excited I am to here that the much anticipated drama “What’s Up” will be premiering this Saturday! After being put on hold for over a year, the teen performing arts drama will finally be aired.

In addition to the appeal of the drama starring  Big Bang’s powerhouse, Daesung, I am super estactic to watch a drama that lays in the performing arts genre. Although Dream High and Heartstrings also fell into this genre, I never really got the same vibe I got when watching Fame. I am quite happy to say that “What’s Up” is everything I could hope for in a drama and more. Check out the trailer below!

We’ve got powerful singing, intense dancing, and of course, the ever-necessary love lines.I loved the rendition of the theme of Fame; even though the engrish had me cringing a bit, I enjoyed the powerful vocals and dance numbers. I’m also looking forward to hearing Daesung sing =))

What’s Up actually cast their characters through rounds of open auditions, which means that there will be some real talent showcased throughout the series. This will come as a breath of fresh air for me since I usually find myself getting annoyed with all the fake piano-playing and lip syncing that goes on in most dramas. The show will also star  Im Joo-Hwan (Tamra the Island), Im Joo-Eun (Hon), Jang Hee-Jin (Myung-Wol, the Spy), Jo Jung Suk (musical actor), and Lee Soo Hyuk (Tree With Deep Roots, model) (pictured in order)

Be sure to check out the premiere of “What’s Up” this Saturday, December 3rd!

On a side note, I must say, I am a wee bit worried that the awesomeness of this drama may potentially conflict with the unawesomeness of finals week. *sigh*
