Park Ye Jin and F.T. Island’s Lee Hong Gi will play out a teacher-student relationship in SBS “Master of Study” drama scheduled for broadcast after “Tazza” in the Mon-Tue timeslot starting from 1st December.

“Master of Study” is adapted from a popular Japanese manga “Dragon Zakura” and revolves around 6 students with the worst grades in a special class. Many interesting stories happen along the way as they take on the challenge of getting into the prestigious Seoul University with hilarious results.

Park Ye Jin plays an english teacher who is easily moved (emotional) while Lee Hong Gi plays a student who has dreams of becoming a singer. Other students already casted include Byeol Kim who is a bully initially but later becomes a cheerful maths genius. Hwang Baek Hyun plays a rebellious student while singer Rich is a student who looks mature on the outside but is actually very humorous. Three other roles hasn’t been casted yet and among them is a maths teacher who is very popular but has a mysterious background.

According to the drama PD, “Although we are unable to keep totally to the original storyline in the manga, but we will seek inspiration from the Japanese manga and drama adapation and try our best to produce a good drama.” “Master of Study” will begin filming at the end of this month.

The follow-up drama to “Tazza” was supposed to be “Terroir” starring Han Hye Jin and Kim Joo Hyuk but it has been postponed to 2009 because SBS wants to fight KBS idol drama “Boys Over Flowers” with it’s own idol drama.
