The role Kim Yo Han will be playing goes by the name of Kim Tae Jin. The role seems tailored fit for him as he gets to be a Taekwondo player! Being a real-life Taekwondo player before venturing to entertainment makes the character suits him the best.

In the series, Kim Tae Jin has won various medals as a national taekwondo athlete at the junior level. But his life takes a drastic turn when his father’s business goes bankrupt. To add to his misery, Kim Tae Jin also sustains a critical injury in his ankle. He has no choice but to change his career and enroll at a technical high school.

Kim Tae Jin speaks and acts like an adult but still an innocent high schooler who gets shy and does not know what to do when he is in front of the girl he likes. The filming for School 2020 is set to begin in March, with the series aiming to premiere in August.

School 2020 is the eight drama in the School series. KBS2’s “School” drama series first began in 1999. A lot of now-famous actors starred in the previous School series like Gong Yoo, Jo In Sung, Lee Dong Wook, Kim Woo Bin, Lee Jong Suk, and more.
