Sungkyunkwan’s other student foursome

Now that the main leads have been selected, upcoming campus sageuk drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal is filling in its supporting cast. The four actors above play a group of sunbaes at the school who take an antagonistic role to our main quartet and are (from top left, going clockwise) Jeon Tae-soo, Chae Byung-chan, Kim Dong-yoon, and Kang Sung-pil.

Sungkyunkwan Scandal has already drawn notice for the casting of its main leads — Micky Yoochun, Song Joong-ki, Yoo Ah-in — who play three of the “Joseon F4.” (The fourth member is the role of a girl who dresses as a guy to take her sick brother’s place at school, and had been cast with Jung Da-young before she recently dropped out.)

In the rival foursome, Jeon Tae-soo (whom you may recall is the younger brother to actress Ha Ji-won) plays a “bad guy” role as the leader who is part of Sungkyunkwan’s student council. He was in 2007’s King and I, which makes this his second time in a sageuk. Kang Sung-pil had roles in Legend and Queen Seon-dok and plays Jeon’s right-hand man in a comic role highlighted by his dimwittedness. Chae Byung-chan was apparently in My Fair Lady (I can’t recall him, but he may have been one of the butlers), while new actor Kim Dong-yoon takes on a new character who wasn’t in the original novel.
