For teenagers, the influence of adults is especially important.
KBS 2TVs School 2017 showcases how adults protect students and help foster their dreams. In addition to the stories of each student, the adults in School 2017 are especially playing key roles to encourage the youngsters seemingly unreachable dreams.
For example, to Oh Sa Rang (Park Se Wan), her dream is for her mother to live in a better environment. Due to her familys financial difficulties, Oh Sa Rang never complains or thinks about herself. Her mother says, You can do it [complain]. Thats what children are supposed to do to their mothers. Dont worry about me, Sa Rang. If Im really struggling, Ill tell you. Give me an opportunity to act like a mother. With her mothers encouragement, Oh Sa Rang starts to explore what she wants to do in her life.
