At a recent press conference, leading actor Seo In Guk who stars in High School King of Savvy shared, “I feel honored to be part of this interesting comic drama. I believe the charm that this character will appeal to most of the audiences, hence my decision to take on this role. I caught the screener of the first episode with my fellow actors and actresses recently. The pace of the story is so very tight and interesting and all you fans out there should really check out this drama!
He added, “The storyline is very relatable and different from “Yoon Jae” in Reply 1997 whose image was academic and serious. I will be portraying a more fun and jolly character this time round through. However, I still wear “high school uniform”, similar to when I was in Reply 1997. I love to play young characters and wear school uniform as long as it still suits me.
