"School 2017" Cast Members Jang Dong Yoon & Seol In Ah Reunite in Thrilling New Period Drama "Oasis"
Jang Dong Yoon and Seol In Ah reunite in prime time's new KBS2 period drama Oasis! The two are joined by fellow School series cast member Choo Young Woo (School 2021) as the three leads navigate a turbulent time during Korea's 1980s and 1990s political history. We give you three great reasons why you should watch it!
1. Love, betrayal, murder.
This drama has it all the ingredients needed to keep its audience on the edge of their seats! The series starts off very innocent and nonchalant as our love triangle of friends enjoys their high school days in rural Yeosu City. Their lives get dramatically flipped upside down as Lee Doo Hak (Jang Dong Yoon) and his best friend, Choi Cheol Woong (Choo Young Woo), are involved with a murder that sends Doo Hak to prison for a crime he didn't commit.
2. Great on-screen chemistry!
We don't know if the past dramas that this cast has worked on together had any effect on their on-screen chemistry, but it definitely showed! How effortlessly these three have demonstrated on-screen makes this drama a must-watch! As with any period drama, the character's emotional maturity develops over time and Oasis definitely has many of these elements!
3. Historical brilliance!
We love that Oasis is set in a time period (the 1980s through 1990s) that not many K-dramas have ever tried. For those who love Korean history, this drama realistically portrays the hardships of rural Koreans during that time. Apart from some inaccurate dialect scenes, the drama mainly uses a Seoul dialect, and much of the costumes and sets are as if you were immersed in that era.
Oasis premiered on March 6, 2023, and airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 21:50 KST!
