* HeroicBSOD: Pilsook has one due to her chances of being in the student showcase getting dashed because she's a member of the special admissions class, her diet not working out, and finding out Jason is ususally nice to everyone, not just her. She almost withdraws from Kirin because of it, but a last minute remark from Jason about how he would like to sing a duet with her one day because he liked her voice from the first time he heard it during auditions has her tearing up her withdrawl papers in a heartbeat.

--> ''"Those who lost their dreams...''
--> ''Who are chasing dreams... ''
--> ''Who stole dreams... ''
--> ''And who have their dreams stolen. ''
--> ''This is a symphony for them."''

''Dream High'' is a 2011 KoreanDrama in which six aspiring arts students attending the famous Kirin Arts High School pursue their dreams of becoming stars. Most notable for being produced by two Korean Entertainment giants, [[WinterSonata Bae Yongjoon]] and Park Jinyoung (from here on out, JYP), and featuring a main cast consisting of mostly [[KoreanPopMusic K-Pop]] {{Idol Singer}}s. The drama begins with the news that a Korean artist with the pseudonym "K" has won a Grammy for the first time in 2018, and an interview with Bae Yongjoon's character reveals that K is one of the six. From there, the drama goes back to their time as students and tracks their growth. A pendant of a K in a circle becomes the symbol of the show, passing back and forth between the main characters as part of the mystery behind who is K?

* ActorAllusion:
** During episode three, Hyemi sings while using Samdong's outhouse to prevent him from actually hearing anything. In real life, her actress Suzy was discovered after singing in a public bathroom and being approached by a talent scout who overheard her.
** JYP, who plays Professor Yang, gets a lot!
*** Yang defends Pilsook with a "[[SelfDeprecation what does looks have to do with ability]]?"
*** As Professor Yang does a rant about an ex who didn't understand the sacrifices he made for her, the background song is "Behind You" by JYP.



* DawsonCasting: Played straight as Samdong, Jingook, Baekhee, and Jason's actors are all older than high school students. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] as Hyemi and Pilsook's actresses are still high school students.



* FakeNationality: Jason, the international student who is heralded as a dancing and singing prodigy. He is supposed to be from [[FakeAmerican America]], but his actor had to take English lessons from the English-speaking members of the BoyBand he's in. Ironically, one of these members is the same person who acts as Jingook.
