Ikemen Desu Ne, the japanese remake of the popular korean drama You are Beautiful, exceeded my expectation and that's saying a lot because I loved the korean original. Gotta admit I fell for second lead Shin played by Jung YonHwa of CN Blue in the original drama, when the band was just an indie group. In the japanese remake, I couldn't deny the sizzling hotness of
the OTP of Ren and Mio/Miko, the leader of A.N.Jell and the cross-dressing nun who had to step into her twin brother's shoe while he recuperates from a broken nose. And having Johnny's from my fave Johnny's junior no more band Kis-My-Ft2 ( Kisumai) Tama chan or Tamamori Yuta as Ren the leader and guitarist , Taipi kun or Taisuke Fujiyama ( my super fave in Kisumai w/ Hiromitsu Kitayama )as Shin on vocals and bass and and Hikaru Yaotome of Hey Say Jump (HSJ) as Yuuki on drums was casting genius. As much as I love Park Shin Hye , Miori Takimoto rocked Mio/Miko with just the right amount of cuteness, angst, innocence and beauty. I totally loved her. And there were the cameo roles of Jang Geum Suk the original Ren in the kdrama and the dorky appearance of Kitayama in the last episode, in a Ren meets Ren scenario that was amazing fan service. Kitayama is playing the role of Ren in the musical stage version of Ikemen Desu Ne. I just liked everything about the drama, the pacing, the storyline's development, the characters' development, even Nana the villaness fairy idol ( played byAKB 48 member Kojima Haruna ) was likeable. I give this drama a perfect 10 golden stars too. But don't take my word for it , go watch this 11 episode gem.

Romance dorama about a nun who has to pretend being her brother in a really popular band. The whole story seemed so unbelievable from the 1st episode that I still wonder how I managed to end watching it. I didn't like how Ren behaved towards Mio (well, Miko), and what about all that family stuff? Too messy. I understand the public for this dorama is really young so they can daydream about a story similar to this, so maybe this dorama was not for me. It was well produced but it reminded me too much to Hana Kimi (did you see Yuuki talking to himself about his feelings?), which was much better than this one. Anyway, watch it if you like daydreaming, fluffy romances and loose reactions.

fail attempt at replicating the korean original. they cut the no. of episodes from 16 to 11 but the majority of what was cut was the point of the show! that it is about a idol group! the singing, the no. of songs. was on a strict skeletal frame.

I really thought this would not match up to the Korean version at all because I knew the story already. I still prefer the Korean version, but the Japanese version had enough slight differences to make it memorable on its own.

a rather touching romance series, however the scriptwriters seem to ignore one important fact which could bring the story to a new twist.

I haven't seen the Korean version. People say it was better. My only question is, "How could it not be?!!?"

I prefer this one to the kdrama for many reasons: actors, condense story, soundtrack...
