[141117] [Henry] Mnet’s new youth music drama begins casting

It’s been a while since cable station Mnet announced that it would be following up its high school music drama Monstar with a new series in the same mold, but it looks like casting has finally begun on the project, called Persevere, Gu Hae-ra. (In Korean, the title is a turn of phrase that means literally, Fail seven times, succeed on the eighth, meaning to be dogged and persevere. They stuck a gu for “nine” into the phrase to get a 7-8-9 pun, which also turns the last bit of the phrase into the heroine’s name.)
