dorama - Ikemen Desu Ne

official website:

drama title:
Ikemen Desu Ne [美男ですね]
oso known as he's beautiful (japanese version)

main cast:
Takimoto Miori as Sakuraba Yoshio/Miko (role played by Park Shin Hye)
Tamamori Yuta as Katsuragi Ren (role played by Jang Guen Suk, who cameos in 1 episode!)
Fujigaya Taisuke as Fujishiro Shu (role played by Jung Yong Hwa)
Yaotome Hikaru as Hongo Yuki (role played by Lee Hongki)

same storyline in general as the korean original drama, but with some changes (after all 16 episodes reduced to 11) as well as some different interpretations of the situations.

my score: 5 out of 10.
very sad, cos what they cut out are all the singing and idol group issues, reducing it to mostly a romance drama. as a result, you dont feel there is an idol band, even though they followed the same concept as the korean version in using singers to act the drama (or actors who can sing).

why you should watch it:
just cos you watched the korean version and want to see what the japanese version is all about. personally, it's a major letdown. i'd rather re-watch the korean version!
