This is an update about the k-drama series "Moorim School". There will be spoilers. If you haven't watched it yet, or are behind, proceed to a different page.
Moorim School is a Korean drama that first aired early this year. It has been turning heads and grabbing attention of many netizens and fans everywhere. At first, it was considered to only be having 16 episodes, but as it turns out the show will continue on with 20 episodes. The drama follows two protagonists Yoon Shi Woo, a K-pop idol who has been suffering from hearing loss and Wang Chi Ang, the heir to a large Chinese company.
Yoon Shi Woo is suffering from loss of hearing and decides to take some time off from being an idol. He performs one last concert where a light fixture falls, nearly killing him, but he is able to stop it and then is knocked out of the way by Hwang Seon Ah, a fangirl. She tells him about Moorim School.
Trying to impress his father, Wang Chi Ang will do anything, however, one day he is kidnapped and forced to attend Moorim School. He tries to escape and falls off a cliff into water below and is rescued by Shim Soon Deok, a poor girl attending Moorim School against her father's wishes.
Chi Ang agrees to go with Soon Deok to Moorim because he's fallen in love with her. Quickly things escalate because the idol, Shi Woo, whose concert Chi Ang's company sponsered, shows up. Chi Ang and Shi Woo show animosity towards one another and get in several fights. This leads to their expulsion from the school, unless they will travel to Moorim Peak and retrieve the school marking.
The two travel up Moorim Peak and along the way become really close. They abandon their mission when Chi Ang, without a shoe, suffers from his foot bleeding and the pains from walking on it for days.
They are both granted permission to stay at Moorim. However, midterms are right around the corner and Chi Ang and Shi Woo are determined to make it to the advanced level.
They all do very well during their midterms, but they get poisoned while at a party thrown by the dean. They wake up in a locked cell and are informed that a fire will soon break out. They all attempt to flee but Yeop Jung leaves without them and locks their exit. They decidedly leave through a window and down the side of the building. They all make it back and Seon Ah comes in first place.
All seems well at Moorim for a while until the school goes on a retreat into Seoul and Soon Deok is kidnapped being mistaken for Seon Ah. Chi Ang enters the building where Soon Deok is being held and fights off a group of people but gets slashed across the stomach. Seon Ah calls for help. Meanwhile, Soon Deok is being taken elsewhere and Shi Woo rescues her by driving a motorcycle into the kidnappers' car.
Soon Deok stay with Chi Ang as he recovers and soon after they return to Moorim. Dean Hwang announces that there will be the Moorim Competition early this year and that it will include outsiders and Moorim alumni.
That's where I'm going to conclude this k-drama update. Watch the episodes to get caught up and look out for the next 10 episodes. Episode 11 and 12 are already available with subs. Thanks for the support!
