School 2017: A Place of Heart, Hope, and Healing

A cheerful, bumbling female lead with bad grades and lofty dreams of getting into the university where her first love oppa studies. A rebellious, motorbike-riding male lead who is the son of the schools wealthy director. A golden boy with top grades and a troubled personality beneath his seemingly perfect exterior. And to top it off, a mysterious serial prankster named Suspect X, a constant pain in the school administrations neck but upheld as a hero figure by the student population.

At first glance, School 2017 is cartoonish and chock full of high school drama cliches; it could not appear to deviate any further from the realistic take on contemporary school and social issues that distinguished most of the School series. At best, to the viewer going in with no expectations, this setup is wacky and campy, making for crack drama material with high entertainment value but perhaps not that much depth. At its worst, to the viewer acquainted with the School series, it smacks of wildly unrealistic and weak writing that falls back on convenient plot points and character archetypes.
