After weeks of speculation and various casting rumors, we suddenly have a blast of confirmations for the upcoming KBS series Sassy Go Go (working English title Cheer Up!). A Pink's Jung Eun Ji (Answer Me 1997), Lee Won Geun (Hyde,Jekyll, and I), Ji Soo (Angry Mom), Chae Soo Bin (Bluebird's House), and VIXX's N (The Family Is Coming) have all confirmed their parts in this high school drama.

Sassy Go Go will focus on the ups and downs of a cheerleading club at an intensely competitive high school. Eunji takes the lead role as Kang Yeon Doo, the upbeat and popular leader of her school's cheerleading squad. Her big downfall is her poor grades in a new school that pushes academic excellence. 

Lee Won Geun was a member of the circus troupe in Hyde, Jekyll, and I, but he steps into his first leading role as Kim Yeol, the boy who appears to have everything with his good looks and great grades. He and Yeon Doo clash when their rival dance and cheerleading squads collide.

Angry Mom breakout star Ji Soo will play Seo Ha Joon, a mysterious student in the top 5% of his class who harbors a secret pain. He is part of the school's cheerleading squad, but he constantly feels stress about his grades. Chae Soo Bin is Kwon Soo A, whose entire life has been outlined for her by her mother. She initially joins cheerleading to fill out her resume, but she discovers that she has a hidden talent for it. Last but not least is VIXX's N (Cha Hak Yeon) as Ha Dong Jae, the school's resident brainiac with the childish oddball personality of a grade schooler.

Sassy Go Go will premiere on KBS2 in October, following the conclusion of The Virtual Bride.
