KBS2’s new TV series “Moorim School” kicked off Monday.

Actor Lee Hyun-woo, Korean boy band VIXX’s member Lee Hong-bin, actress Seo Ye-ji star in the TV drama series, “Moorim School: Saga of the Brave.”

The first episode showed how former member of boy band “Mobius” Yoon Shi-woo (Lee Hyun-woo) and scion of a Chinese tycoon Wang Qiang (Lee Hong-bin) were all sent to a mysterious place, the Moorim Institute -- martial arts school in Korean.

Shi-woo, a prickly young guy, found out he was suffering from ear malfunction while he was in the band “Mobius.” He didn’t reveal his ear problem to anyone, fearing the revelation could stand in the way of his career. Then, in a concert, he was stunned by the ear trouble when a light equipment was about to fall above his head. He failed to dodge it, but one mysterious lady named Jung Yoo-jin (Hwang Sun-ah) saved his life and said, “Come to Moorim Institute to cure your ear.” “Mobius” soon took downward turn and Shi-woo was mired in a plotted love scandal, prompting Shi-woo to escape out for the mystical school.

Wang Qiang was forced to attend the institute by his parents. While resisting it, Wang Qiang fell off the cliff and started drowning in the sea, but is rescued by a girl named Shim Soon-duk. Wang Qiang had a crush on her and later found out she was a student in Moorim Institute, which made him decide to enter the institute.

With all main characters, Shi-woo, Qiang, Soon-duk and Soo-ah in their 20s, the drama is expected to give a glimpse of the way youths survive in the highly-competitive society, according to KBS2.

The drama, preceded by “Oh My Venus,” is broadcast on Mondays and Tuesdays at 9:55 p.m.
