Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: This is a remake of the Korean Hit Drama, "You're Beautiful". The original Korean version aired in 2009 and starred Park Shin Hye, Jang Keun Suk, Lee Hong Ki, and Jung Yong Hwa. The story revolved around a fictional boy band named A.N.JELL. Park Shin Hye played a nun-in-training who has to pose as her twin brother and take his place in the group, leading to a complicated relationship between the group?s members
The Japanese really made it their own ;)
So I’m probably not the only one here who loved the korean original so that’s why I decided to give this version a try. I’ve watched the first two episodes now so…
First Impression??? "Uhhmm…. were are the ikemen???" haha xD
...but after half of the first episode had passed I was already accepting these new actors! They might not be the best looking guys but they play the’r parts nicely ;) Especially the girl lead is perfectly casted in my opinion!
So, in comparison to the original, this story in this version moves at a much faster pace - typically for japanese dramas - so that’s why some people might prefer the original, but I really love this version too. It will probably only have 9 or 10 episodes but the story will be complete by then so why not? =)
I think this version is just as funny as the original and probably won’t be as "heavy" in the sad parts because japanese drama storylines tend to be a bit lighter and less melancholic… so I guess it depends on the watcher’s preferences to decide which version of the story is "better"...
Just give it a try and see for yourself ;).
