kdrama - he's beautiful

official website:

drama title:
미남이시네요 / Minami Shineyo
oso known as you're beautiful, etc.

main cast:

장근석 Jang Geun Suk as Hwang Tae Kyung
박신혜 Park Shin Hye as Go Mi Nam (Male) / Go Mi Nyu (Female)
이홍기 Lee Hongki as Kang On Yu / Jeremy (from FT Island)
정용화 Jung Yong Hwa as Kang Shin Woo (from C.N. Blue)

boy band recruits new member, who due to some plastic surgery issues, got his twin sis to take his place temporary (1 month). so the issues of a new member integrating into the band, plus the discovery of the deception, and the maintenance of the deception, and the boys falling for the girl, makes for a very interesting storyline.

my score: 10 out of 10.
how i derived that score. i watched the drama practically non-stop over a weekend (16 episodes). just couldnt drag myself away. actually gave up on wow gaming time. only took some time out to play wow, and eat and sleep and some maintenance stuff that had to be done around the house.

why you should watch it: 
  • the score i gave this drama. btw, i hardly ever rate anything 10. although this drama had poor ratings during its run on ktv (korean tv), it kept its 10% ratings even though it was going against IRIS (supposedly an awesome drama, 20+% ratings, but i havent watched it yet). the storyline is that good, the actors clicked together, and that showed up in the drama.
  • Jang Geun Suk at his best
  • real singers in the boy band. from other boy bands (see main cast)
  • non-stop eye candy (Park is cuter and more feminine than "Coffee Prince" actress Yoon Eun Hye)
  • life of a boy band
  • fab concept of a pig-rabbit (or dwaeji t'okki in Korean) plush toy.
  • funny scenes like guys dancing to Genie (SNSD) or Sorry Sorry (Super Junior)
titbits from the drama:
Mi Nam - name of the character played by Park, is a word play on the drama title - it means beautiful guy.
A.N.JELL - archangel
operation pig-rabbit
