I’m officially ready to watch this drama now. It comes out in about a week and a half so I can probably get an episode in before school starts. I started making a cast guide but never got around to updating it. Thankfully, someone else did. If I would have actually taken the time to update mine, it wouldn’t have taken me long really. Just in case anyone is too lazy to click the link I’ve provided, here’s the cast as provided here.
Choi Minho as Kang Taejoon (Sano Izumi)
Choi Sulli as Goo Jaehee (Mizuki Ashiya)
Lee Hyun Woo as Cha Eun-gyeol (Nakatsu Shuichi)
Ki Tae-young as Jang Min-woo (Dr. Umeda)
Seo Jun young as Ha Seung-ri (Nanba Minami) *DORM 2 LEADER
Hwang Kwang-hee as Song Jong-min (Nakao)
Yoo Min Kyu as Young-mahn (Megumi Tennoji) *DORM 1 LEADER
Kim Ee An as Na Chul Soo (Oscar M. Himejima) *DORM 3 LEADER

Honey Lee as the President of the school
Ahn Hye-kyung as Yang Seo-yoon (Akiha Hara)
Julien Kang as Daniel (Mizuki’s brother from America)
Sungwoo Jae Duk as Tae Jun’s father
EXO - students at the school
There’s not much I can really say about the cast honestly since I’ve only watched two maybe three Korean dramas and haven’t heard of 3/4 of the cast. I can see EXO will definitely be there for eye candy, which I can’t complain about. This is supposed to be Ikemen Paradise after all. The guy who is playing Nakatsu, Lee Hyun Woo, I hear is a great actor though his hair isn’t doing him any justice. I’m not at all sure why there is another main female character, but I’m guessing it’s an additional thing this remake is adding. Maybe to get more depth to the plot. Hopefully that proves to be more good than bad. Speaking about adding things in and whatnot, I really really really hope they leave Dr. Umeda and Nakao‘s characters as be. I didn’t see anything about Kayashima’s character, who was my favorite after Nanba and Nakatsu lol maybe not my absolute favorite. Before I heard about L playing his character, which I would have liked, but there’s been no word since.
