Yoon Seol-chan (Yong Joon-hyung), a member of Korea's most popular K-pop boy band “MAN IN BLACK”, is lashes out and provoked into pushing at his crazy fans, and when that goes viral, his reputation plummets. As damage control, his agency tells him to quietly attend school for a while. Meanwhile, Min Se-yi (Ha Yeon-soo), a new transfer student from New Zealand, draws attention in the school for both her talent and oddness. Misunderstandings have occurred between them and their classmates. In true coming-of-age fashion, this exiled group of students discovers the connections that bind them together: music and friendship; which also help them to overcome the obstacles and realize their dreams.

March 31, 2014
2013 was a good year for Korean school dramas. Besides the breakout hit School 2013 and the underrated Queen's Classroom, Mnet and tvN created a small but pleasant surprise in Monstar.
Monstar was pitched as a music drama with BEAST's Yong Jun Hyung making his acting debut as an ill-tempered teen idol who gets sent back to his performing arts high school for image rehabilitation. He reluctantly falls for a quirky transfer student (Ha Yeon Soo) from New Zealand who somehow doesn't know who he is. Then he grudgingly forms a band with some other misfits and loners in the class to challenge the cocky popular kids of the orchestra (yes, the orchestra). Fighting and bullying are followed by daydreaming and reconciling, and then everyone hangs out in Ahn Nae Sang's basement to make music and sing songs that are usually cheesy but totally catchy and genre-appropriate.
Most of the singing is during practices and performances, but the drama breaks out into musical mode here and there in fantasy sequences and classroom singing. One of the most memorable and touching scenes in the drama is when bullied student Radio (Kang Eui Sik) sings a song of his despair in class. The newly arranged remakes of well-known pop songs also make for fun listens.
Monstar's story seems to progress in strangely clumsy manner, considering the experience of director Kim Won Suk (Sungkyunkwan Scandal) and writer Jung Yoon Jung (Arang and the Magistrate), but that clumsiness soon becomes a part of the characters' world and the drama's identity. Basically, Monstar gets one very integral part of youth and high school right: the awkwardness. The cast is a bit raw, the pacing is a bit slow, the script is a bit stilted and it just all feels a bit like adolescence. The process in which the core circle of friends eagerly and/or reluctantly befriend each other while beating around the bush with angsty crushes, secrets and insecurities succinctly captures the stubborn earnestness and cringing awkwardness of teenage relationships and high school dynamics.
Monstar is built on empathetic characters and slice-of-school interactions with some music thrown in. Less forgiving audiences may rightfully note that the story doesn't go anywhere, but the open conflicts and resolutions do stay true to the drama's small momentary world of youth. Monstar is one of the most awkward Korean dramas I've ever seen, and I mean that as a compliment.
