The very best thing about ths drama is the story is constantly moving forward. The writer of this gets my applause for keeping it fresh and never boring. The story twists and turns in very believable ways moving the Students of Dream High along on their journey and making them grow up. It's fun to watch. The music is great and works into the plot perfectly. There is so much humor and read more no one is a cookie cutter Kdrama character. It's a school drama but it's so much more too. I hear there is going to be a sequel? If they do it right, I'm there!

I didn\''t really have high hopes for this drama at first... but before I knew it I was sitting at the computer for hours anticipating each episode! I was practically watching Dream High for Jason and Pil-suk though. Jason and Pil-suk are so~ adorable together :) In the end, I liked Hye Mi\''s decision but I was not very satisfied with the ending... as long as they make a second Dream High read more with the same main cast I\''ll be okay with it. The OST of Dream High is one of my favorite of the year. Obviously I am now a fan of Wooyoung and 2PM Oh yes, and I forgot, the loan shark guy- you could never tell what he was up to...

Very similar to heartstrings.. Revolves around a set of students where the central theme is achieving their dreams and music.. And most similarity is the music itself.. Both have wonderful music.. Very calm and warm.. Worth a try..

    I've recently gone back and have been rewatching this drama, and _oh my_. If you were like me and watched it around the time it aired, I recommend giving it a rewatch! Comparing the cast to how they are now, comparing Kpop to how it is now, comparing the feelings it gave you the first watch in contrast to the feels it gives you now.... There's such nostalgia there, and remembering how little I cared about that unknown actor Kim Soo Hyun when I started watching this blows me away when I think about how much this drama made me love him.
    I don't know if I would love this drama as much if I were to watch it for the first time now, when the average quality of kdramas as a whole has risen so much, but back in the day this was a really big drama. It started a short trend of music/kpop dramas, a trend I wish would make a resurgence. This is a new(ish) classic.

    This series has been hard-carried by Kim Soo Hyun to become one of the most known teenage dramas. His acting was spectacular.

    at first i don't have a high hope in this drama that I even hesitate to put it on my plan list and sometimes I put it and then delete it later, but when I watch the 1st episode out of my boredom. . whoah. . it amazed me that I continued watching it without fast forward.
    but I'm a little bit disappointed with the ending. . coz Hye Mi and Sam Dong separated. they look good together that I'm so in love with their romance and I want them to be united and have their happy ending. . im hoping that in Dream High 2 they're united. .not only as friends but lovers..
    all in all its so good. . . SUPERB!!!
    watch it im sure you'll gonna love this. .

    What's the acting in this like?
    I have seen Suzy in a few dramas and I didn't really like her acting. Is she the main character in this drama? I don't mind watching it if they don't focus on her entirely.
