***107th COMPLETED PROJECT!!!!***

Keane: Miki Honoka resembles Ariel Lin the most out of all the actresses! Who’s totally agreeing with me? I wonder if she researched Ariel’s acting before she started filming this 2013 remake. Finally, a show which has a real teenage high schooler acting as none other than… a high school student. This person is Miki Honoka, who blew out her sixteenth birthday candle just last month. Happy belated birthday girl!

I watched the first four episodes and I love it so far. There are a few LOL(!) moments so I’m grateful for those. I surely need a lot of comedy in my life ATM. What else?… so far, I can’t really enjoy the OST or any bgm for this show, and that’s a real shame because the Taiwanese version (It Started with a Kiss) really gave out a great collection.

I’m anticipating a wedding scene to check if this couple will cross-dress. That scene is like the best part about this drama, LOL, despite derailing the story off a bit from its original (which I merely skimmed through because it couldn’t captivate me) or anime (of which I so-so love) version. The only part where I couldn’t fully enjoy the Korean version (Mischievous/Playful Kiss) is for this fun scene was omitted. Pfft, Korean idols and their protective images. Uhh, and they all wonder why there’s a huge fan-cult for TW’s OTP. Key word: FUN = ISWAK. =p

Keane’s final words, *happy dance style* I love-love-love-love-love-love the finale. I was totally giddy all the way through despite a few tearjerkers for Kin-chan. Miki Honoka looks so pretty in Kotoko’s bridal dress that I had goosebumps all over. I was totally a goner when I saw Furukawa Yuki’s side profile sitting in Naoki’s ivory tuxedo. He’s so HOT! Even with the messy hair. You’ll see what I mean. I can’t wait for his next project, another manga adaptation, in a movie end of the year. Definitely a MUST WATCH for all Itakiss fans. HURRAY!!!

The pic below’s a teaser not the actual outfits on Naoki Irie’s & Kotoko Aihara’s wedding day:

    Agree Miki’s acting is closest to Ariel’s but perhaps i find Miki prettier than Ariel hence Miki ain’t as annoying as Ariel at portraying silly Kotoko. I liked Ariel as Kotoko but she was seriously annoying and frustrating yet cute to watch. Perhaps jdorama’s more condensed hence Miki’s Kotoko feels much breezier to watch. ISWAK was enjoyable but your words just got me wondering if ISWAK’s huge fan-cult are mostly Chinese only or include Koreans, Japanese and other cultures as well.

  2. runaway

    I was wondering if this was any good before giving it a chance since the Korean remake was meh. I’d say ISWAK fan-cult includes other cultures. I’m from the Philippines and I’d say the most popular ones are from early 2000 dramas.

    I’ll give this a try. 🙂

  3. Janny

    Love the anime, the Taiwanese version and also the not-so-favored Korean version! 🙂 Giving this a try too! Thanks for the links! 😀

  4. risa

    Yay, another remake, reminds me of the first Itazura na kiss (1997 – if i’m mistake) drama. Even Honoka miki’s ears is like Sato aiko ^^. I think they want to bring back us to the original Itazura na kiss in new freshness.

  5. Milet M

    My all time favorite is the taiwanese version. I’ve see the Korean Version and I don’t like it as much as ISWAK taiwan. I’ll try this one too. 🙂

  6. Keane

    Love to read Itakiss fan-cult from all over the world.

    A little change up in fansubbers. Things will remain hardsubbed. Thanks gettora for doing this.

      I heard a dare so I’m here. 😎

      Funny how our instincts tell us to pucker them lips when we sense a kiss. 😛

      1. Keane

        Oooo, dare devil… you!

        I’m not sure about that, I have a delayed response mechanism in mii, so I may just freeze up and be wooden-like from a surprise kiss like that. No puckered lips from mii.

        My bro likes to jump out of nowhere and startle me from time to time, his weird display of affection, goodness sake, and I always take a few seconds more to react to them. LOL!

  7. Griffin

    Hello! Many thanks for this 🙂 I am really enjoying this update, especially how assertive and upbeat Kotoko is – so cute 🙂 I’m a big fan of ISTWAK too, but I’m liking the way this version is interpreting this. I was wondering if anyone might have any advice for me on how to play the .rar files. I’ve had no problems with the MP4s for episodes 1 and 2 but when I downloaded the file for episode three I couldn’t get it to play. I’ve got a VLC player which is usually up for any files too but no dice this time. If anyone can advise me, I’d really appreciate it 🙂 Thanks again for posting these – I really appreciate all the hard work 🙂

    1. Kappy

      You need an extracting program to unzip the file contained in the compressed folder. DL either 7zip or Winrar for this purpose. After you have the program installed, right-click on your compressed file > extract > a new folder containing the video file will be seen. Good luck!

    2. Keane

      Nice of you to hop on board Griffin.

      Yup, please consider Kap’s advice. You may find more details in our F.A.Q.s page.

  8. Griffin

    Thank-you Kap & Keane! I will try the programs you suggested 🙂 This show is definitely worth the effort! Thanks so much for linking up to it and sharing with all us erstwhile travelers 🙂

  9. Griffin

    Alas, the programs are maybe not Mac-compatible – I just get gibberish on the WinRar and 7-Zip programs after they download. Many thanks for the advice though! If I stumble onto a way that works, I’ll post back here in case anyone else is having my same problems.

  10. Griffin

    Me again – last time I swear! I think my difficulties with the other software stemmed from the Mac / PC issue. I found a different expander, the RAR Expander appropriately enough. It worked great. Similarly to Kap’s instructions above, once you’ve got the software installed and downloaded the .rar file, you just right click on the file and opt to expand the file (it’ll ask you to pick a location to expand to). Here’s the link if anyone else is looking for a Mac option: http://rar-expander.en.softonic.com/mac/download – Thanks again Kap & Keane for sending me off in the right direction – I’ve checked out the useful F.A.Q. page too.

  11. Spress

    On a Mac, you can also use “The Unarchiver” which will expand not just .rar files but lots of others too.

    Where is episode 6?????? 🙁

    1. Kat

      According to DramaFever, it won’t be aired until next week because of some special program : ).

    2. Keane

      This week Fuji TV TWO released a making special for Itakiss~TOKYO instead. It goes on comparing the Korean version with this new remake and shows the auditioning process.

      I can relate to your addiction. Hahaha~

  14. Sarah

    Oh. :/ so we’ll have to wait for 5 more days??? 🙁 and I was checking dramacrazy every other minute to see if the episode was up. -______- Btw, thanks for the reply guys. 🙂

  15. Sparrow

    Thank you so much for posting this! I have a rather complicated relationship with this series in its many incarnations, mostly because I can only take so much of the stupid, but perky girl trope. Still, this one I’m enjoying. I like that they seem to have toned down some of the extremes found in earlier versions. Kotoko is still dim, but unlike the older Japanese version, I don’t worry about her ability to function on her own (there were times I thought the older version belonged in a group home).

    I also like that Irie sometimes throws us a bone in regards to his feelings for Kotoko. I remember being so frustrated with the Taiwanese version because the signs that he loved her were so few and far between that I would waffle in whether she should stay true or move on.

    Kin-chan, as always, is a joy. 🙂

    So thanks again!

  16. nyonyadyana

    I was a big fan of ISWAK and i’ve watched korean version with the special youtube videos. ISWAK was very fun to watch with the comedy and all. While korean version have man y eye candy. So far the new Itazura Na Kiss is GREAT !!!! Thank you for uploading 😀

    p/s : i still cant believe that furukawa yuki is 25 or 26 already !! he look so young ! ^^

  17. Keane

    Episode 6 is progressing very well. Some good laughs to keep you very entertained. Too bad we all have to wait another week for another juicy episode.

    Episode 6 Spoilers: Ahhh~ College life beginnings.

    Good times.

    Introduction #1… drum roll………………. THE LOVE RIVAL — Matsumoto Yuko:


    Eh? Not Reiko but Yuko? Whatever writer. The production really picked a beauty. I’d get intimidated by her if I were Kotoko.

    OTP is doing fairly well on their parts. Honoka really won me over the instant she shared Ariel’s charisma on-screen. Alike Ariel, the more you look at Honoka the more alluring she becomes as Kotoko.

    To be honest, I’m more interested to know who will play Chris. I love Chris’ personality and I sorta have a thing for UKers; the actress in the TW version was the best, so I can’t wait to see Kotoko’s soul mate… and Kin-chan’s future wife. XD

    Introduction #2… drum roll……… TENNIS TEAM CO-CAPTAIN — Sudo, the Demon:


    He’s so funny!! I love the episode mainly because of him. The actor has a wacky charm. XD Who’s ready for some love rectangle action? Does anybody know what I’m talkin’ about? =p

    Why I can’t download ep 7? Pls, pls, pls…..

      One of two links is up now. I will update the second link in an hour or so.

      All UP! Enjoy. (=

  19. Seema

    Thank you for sharing. Can’t wait for ep. 8?

  20. ML

    Thank you for sharing this! I am a big fan of ISWAK, and I am really enjoying this adaptation.

  21. Keane

    With what pace this show is going, I hope there’s season 2. Shite kudasai Kamisama Drama.

    OMG-sh, I can spot those cute Dopey ears from a mile away… nice touch, to bring in the original Kotoko for a cameo role in ep.10. Did you spot her right away? LOL~ She did try to give you a hint.

    1. runaway

      I like this episode. it definitely delivers a lot of elements like drama, comedy, and especially romance… I like how their relationship is progressing. That scene at the end…. just makes me squeak.

      Hope their will be season 2. This is the only Asian drama I’m really watching. K-dramas are so melo these days I can’t take it. hehe

      1. Keane

        You and me, both…. you and me, both!
        That ending!!

        ……….. SPOILER ALERT: EPISODE 10 ENDING…………

        I have to say, these two WON the MOST BEAUTIFUL SECOND KISS of ’em all (versions).

        He is so darn mesmerizing in this exact moment. My ovaries were running laps. Haha~

        I can watch this 24/7.

          might as well write a spazz page for each episode keane! the loading of this page is slow now with all the beautiful gifs. they deserve their own space, no? 🙂

          all these kisses….im tempted to start this version……i hated the other two versions….lol…..

        2. Keane

          Really? This page loads normal for me.

          How long has it been since you last clear your browser history/cache/cookies, frea?

          I’m too lazy to start those spazz pages. I will duly note this and… probably, if any, spazz one last time around the finale. LOL!

  22. Ayri

    Which day in the week there is a new episode?

    1. runaway

      This airs every friday.

  23. Griffin

    I have to say that I am so into this show 🙂 Thank-you so much for posting the episodes!! I really like the way they have taken all the canon bits and put their own spin on them. I think that this Kin-chan might be my very favorite because they’re (mostly) resisting the urge to make him comical and are really showing that he has a good head on his shoulders. My heart hurt for Kin-chan a little though because he pretty much laid the groundwork for Naoki’s amazing emotional about-face by his epic takedown speech – you really can’t ask for better friend than that; he put Kotoko and Yuki’s needs over his own without hesitation. And yet, Ommo, that kiss – reminds us who the OTP is here. Oh, so much goodness. Tell me I’m not the only one who’s rewatching all the episodes!

    1. Ayri

      Kin-chan is amazing! I totally agree with you. I don’t know if you saw the Korean version but they are so different! he’s way more mature than in the Korean version and less annoying.

    2. Keane

      Ditto! This is why I’m highly anticipating Chris’ appearance, so she can sweep Kin-chan off his feet. (= I don’t want him to be lonely any longer.

      It’s safe to say, I re-watch this show and Answer Me 1997 a lot to fill a void. XD (SHOUT OUT to Anonymous, HEYYYY, for his HD folder via ftp. Words cannot express my gratitude. ^ , ^ v)

  24. Griffin

    Oh, I so second you Ayri and Keane – this version of Kin-Chan is the best. Every episode my heart breaks a little more for him. Did you see Episode 11 yet? I was soooo torn between the cute and my poor heart being beside itself for Kin. There’s no way they’d have such an amazing Kin-Chan and no Chris, right? She’s got to be coming any episode now! I can’t remember the last time I was so anxious for an episode to go up, especially when it’s not an earth-shattering “who shot xyz” type show, but just to see how these characters are turning out. I really like that you can really spot the evolution of Naoki’s feelings too – they’re not quite as on his sleeve as Kotoko’s, but they’re right out there. Even with the sometimes shojo OTP facial expressions (Miki Honoka is kindof a genius at these), you can see the real beating heart of the characters….oh, such feels!

  25. Seema

    I’m glad that the Japanese version of Mischievous Kiss made a remake cos’ seriously I don’t like the original version. The Kotoko then is very annoying. Thank u for sharing it.

  26. Seema

    Of all the Mischievous Kiss, I think I like this version. The second male lead of this drama is the most good looking of all other version. Thank u for sharing, can’t wait for ep 12.

  27. hamda

    whew is ep 12 ??? plz publish it

  28. Keane

    Only two weeks left till a well made drama series ends. Not sure if I love it enough to get withdrawal syndrome however…. oh however, I just want to toss in some good interviews and/or fanmade stuff for Itakiss fans to enjoy as well. Maybe you’ve seen these already, or not, but no one can deny Yuki Furukawa is the next IT boy of Japanese idols. So adorkable!

    wondering why you still haven’t uploaded ep 14. Is some restrictment happen?or can’t find the video? usually Monday or Tuesday, you already post the links.
    Not mean to hurry you but just want to know

    thank you for uploading the hardsub video.really need it 🙂

    1. Keane

      Believe me when I say this, I’ve been stalking the forums for the hardsub release all weekend. ^ , ^

      Nothing new has come out, because the clean raw hasn’t been encoded yet. I will update this post… when hardsubs are available.

      Practice patience, my cutie friend. (=

      1. cutie`

        I see now why there no clean video has been shared in many forums. Only got the chinese hardsub one and not so clean,many cut too 🙁 better than nothing though

        I am patience, just want to know the problem with late posting and why the video is nowhere to be found :)\

        Thank you for your reply Keane. 😀

  30. Seema

    Where’s ep 14? Pls, pls, pls upload……..thank u.

  31. Seema

    Thank u, Keane, for your hard work…….

  32. Keane

    Did anyone else spot another cameo from the original ItaKiss in episode 15? ^ , ^

    Gonna be spazzin’ about the finale. You’re forewarn! Haaaahaaa~

  33. kxyz

    I downloaded everything at one shot when it was completed, and finished the drama in 2 days. Lol.

    Actor playing Naoki, I didnt think he was very good-looking (still, actually), but the drama still made me swoon and he definitely looked better as time went on. xD I thought that both the leads were a little stiff in their acting though… Maybe because I kept comparing it with ISWAK.

    It’s been a long time since I watched ISWAK, but the taiwan version is still better for me. Didnt watch the Korean version because biased. I was so looking forward to the part where the foreign english girl comes into the picture so I hear actually hear the guy speaking some english but no. Neither was there any girl for Kin-chan. Damn. Those were what I was looking forward to most but there wasnt anything at all. ): I was so sad for Kin-chan. ;A;

    1. Keane

      I feel you! Haha~ Rest up girl. Ahhh, you take me back to when I did Answer Me 1997 marathon. It got unhealthy. I had a few dizzy spells. That didn’t happen to you, did it?

      Me too, I was in utter sadness for Kin-chan. He makes me cry every time he gets rejected by Kotoko. I painfully crave for Part Two so much just to see him finally happy with his lady. The show is incomplete without Kin-chan’s happiness being fulfilled. Don’t you agree?

      This OTP really did a great job for 13 episodes, aw I didn’t get my cross dressing scene in this remake not even a fantasy scene or two of it, anyhow, maybe it’s too early to say about their acting range since the other TV couple had 30 episodes in Part 1 to perfect it.

      Honestly, I believe these two act more sincere as first loves than Ariel and Joe. Somehow, Ariel’s and Joe’s jaded personal experience sorta made their version a bit too sexy and fogged up my telly. LOL~ I shouldn’t complain but their innocence was stripped right away in the beginning of They Kissed Again. Woot! It’s getting hot around here. *Keane fans herself*

      I had many goosebumps watching this finale, seeing Kotoko walk down the aisle and Naori’s stunned reaction at that. So adorkable! I squealed in happiness. Darn you Naori, you just had to say those amazing one (extensive) liners. How is a girl to rest easy after hearing your genius remarks? I’ve shamelessly watched the finale 5x’s to date.

      Lucky Shanghai fans got to have an M&G with FuruYuki over the weekend after the finale aired. I want his photobook. He looks so adorkable. I’ve been bitten by the lust bug. XD You can watch Yuki speak English on Dramafever’s Q&A session. I think FuruYuki is usually cute, and proof of it is in the Making episode, but somehow this show’s stylist is indecisive testing weird hairstyles for Yuki’s character. His best hair day was on the second kiss episode.
