“To The Beautiful You”
This SM based production better not flop! It’s certainly got high standards to hold with the previous versions of Hana Kimi and also the other K-Dramas. 9 minute trailer~
Well it’s been a while since I posted anything at all. This drama has been one of my most anticipated since it is produced by SM (hey’all K-pop fans) and also because Hana Kimi was the drama which got me into drams! Rants & Raves will follow~
Bear with me, I’m going to keep switching up the names around. So freaking Izumi (aka Tae Joon, played by Minho) is now one of those freakish teenagers who goes to the olympics and WINS. Well that escalated from previous dramas. I suppose if you recreating a popular drama, you got to start off big. Something else which is amazing is they used a white girl for Julia (idk if they kept that name). If she can speak Korean, then it will be perfect! Now this brings me to rant #1. I wish they chose a lead who could speak English. This would make the scenes between Mizaki and Julia much more realistic. However, seeing Sulli in the preview has made me think she’s a good choice for the role. Now even though Sulli is my lease favorite of f(x)… don’t hate me for saying this: I bet they could have made anyone look boyish.
The interaction between Julia and Mizaki (aka Jae Hee, played by Sulli) seems a bit awkward… and OMG her lines!?!?! “Hey, I heard that guy is Korean” *points at screen* DUDE YOU’RE WATCHING THE OLYMPICS… do you point at every Korean guy/athlete and say “I heard he’s Korean” JUST because your friend is Korean? Well maybe they do in the States… haha.
On to Minho jumping. Our previous Idol Champion (whose Idol records were recently broken) is well fitted to the role of Izumi because of his previous High Jumping wins and also because he is “manly”. I don’t know how to define manly… lots of actors and idols fit that description, but from a kpop based view, Minho’s voice is low, and that makes him manly. As he jumps, we get a look at SM’s favorite use of their multi camera scenes which make the action look 3D! This is a bonus as it can be used for various effects to make the drama much more fun to watch. Then as he goes flying over the bar… Ring Ding Dong wings appear! That cheater… no wonder he can jump so high!
Seeing Minho in a school uniform? Wow! I mean, I already think that’s pretty hot, so fangirls must be DYING watching him. Apparently he discovers undies right from the get go; that will add an interesting twist to the drama. OMG HIGHLIGHT OF THE DRAMA WILL BE YUJIRO. SAO CUTE T^T
(2:20 for Minho pits filled with hair. LOL)
The dorms are really nice… seriously WTF? I swear SM is just flaunting their money at us!!! But nevertheless, great dorms just means that the production better be good. LIKE I WANT THEIR BUNK BEDS. These dorms are… like vacation homes.
On two little side notes, Nakatsu seems to be scripted well, and also Minho’s medal is dated 2010… maybe those were the World Championships or something… or the Olympics in an alternate universe, the dramaverse. 😀
OHMYGOODNESS I CAN’T WAIT!!!
Now I can’t say that I’ll be uploading this drama for sure, although I know our blog will get it up for sure. Currently I’m working 50+ hours a week and trying to prepare myself for University at the same time. I’m also moving out closer to my campus, so I don’t know if I can upload dramas for the time being. I may use remote access to upload, but currently just a speculation. – jeff
