Plot

Like its predecessor Dream High, it follows a group of students at the Kirin High School of Art stars who pursue their dream of becoming K-pop stars. However, it has a slightly different plot with a completely new group of students.

After going into financial bankruptcy, Kirin High School is taken over by Oz Entertainment. The company then transfers its own young trainees to circumvent a law requiring under-age entertainers to study for a set amount of time. Then, competition brews between the troubled students at Kirin High and the newly transferred Oz Entertainment trainees.

Although Shin Hae-sung (Kang Sora) enters Kirin High School with a high exam score, she has a poor score in performance. She meets and befriends fellow students, Jin Yoo-jin (Jung Jin-woon) and JB. Yoo-jin, who originally got into the entertainment industry as a child actor, is now troubled by his dreams of becoming a pop star as he tries to cope with the pain of his parent’s divorce. JB, a member of a famous group Eden, develops feelings for Hae-sung and dates her later on.

Rian (Jiyeon), a member of a famous girl group called “HershE”, chases after JB, who was once her boyfriend. Meanwhile, Yoo-jin, who also likes Hae-sung, tries to separate the couple with Rian. Later on, Rian and Yoo-jin give up and end up as a couple together.

Hae-sung later becomes a famous composer and director, JB ends up as a trainee, Rian become a Hallyu idol and Yoo-jin become a rock music teacher at Kirin High School.
