School / Melodrama

Beautiful World

Beautiful World depicts a world that is anything but.  The drama takes you into the extreme end of bullying and violence at schools, resulting in a catastrophic accident that is covered up by the entire school community – with parents and teachers all desperately trying to protect their children in the former and the reputation of the school in the latter.

With her son Park Sun-ho lying in a hospital bed in a coma and the school desperately trying to cover the accident up as a suicide, his family become determined to set things straight.  Through the determination of his mother Kang In-na (Choo Ja-hyun), father Park Moo-jin (Park Hee-soon) and sister Kang Joon Ha (Lee Chung-ha), they piece together the events leading up to the accident and expose the truth in all its horrifying glory.

Beautiful World is an absolutely outstanding drama that will hold you and keep you captive for the best part.
