However, the new member, Mei Nan, had to go to the States to repair a botched eye job just before signing the contract.

Fabulous Boys OST riffs over here.

Keane: I’m not quite sold on Jiro being Hwang Tae Kyung/Huang Tai Jing. He’s got the star quality, vocals, looks, skills, however… I still feel a lack of personality complex. I dunno, he may prove me wrong. Yes, go ahead… please do ’cause I’m critiquing solely based on the 12+ minutes preview! I hope Jiro is not only trying to live up to his character’s stardom but try breathing new life to it. Foremost, I wonder, is Jiro really evoking Hwang Tae Kyung upon him or is he just choosing one of Jiro Wang’s alter egos to play the part?? ‘Cause ya know, he has more reasons to be thankful landing this role to shed off his Fahrenheit image (been so long).

I like the other three members of A.N.JELL so far, stop — hold up, that Korean boy (Hwang In Deok) looks so much like Wang Lee Hom (that I’m freakin’ fangurlin’ every time he pops up on my screen), and so do I like the other cast members. Woo~ Lily Tian playing Huang Tai Jing’s mom is truly a MILF/HOTTIE. Gees! I also think the girl playing UEE’s part as Yoo He Yi/Liu Xin Ning deserve praises from the get go too. Take a quick look at Jenna Wang’s spread. Evan Yo playing Jeremy… uhm, he has the charm but lacks a baby face. Was Jeremy the maknae in the group A.N.JELL (I forgot)? And like I said before, newbie actress Lele Cheng overshadows Jiro in this show because she IS Hwang Tae Kyung, I mean, Jang Guen Suk’s doppelganger. ROFL~

So… are y’all ready to raid any music store yet for this remake’s OST? OMG-sh…. can’t wait!!!

    So many remakes! I do wonder whether they will deviate from the original or stay exactly the same in every way? While the original was a cult hit among international fans, I became allergic to the infantile heroine after several episodes. 😛 If there’s one thing I notice in the Hong Sisters dramas, is that they tend to give all the meaty characterizations to the male leads. They’re crazy, condescending, and flawed. While the girls are almost always the pure/meek type – one with utmost kindness for everyone. AHUM. Gumiho is slightly altered since she has a spine, but I can’t say the same for Go Mi Nam, Da Ran, and Gu Ae Jung. Yi Nok from Hong Gil Dong falls into this category too but she’s adorable so I managed to finish the drama. I do hope they fix that terrible tendency in their writing and let the ladies be crazy for once!

    Pig & Rabbit Hybrid Resurrection!

    Queen of Remakes Drama = Keane! 😀

    Wow, It’s looks EXACTLY like you’re beautiful. I mean…I’m used to remakes that change stuff here and there but this looks 1:1 , right?! the same songs and everything. maybe I’m just new at watching remakes? 😀 When I watched Japanese remakes of some dramas I could see the difference.
    And Jiro kinda reminds me of Mars from to get her in the way he acts haha

    Honestly, I haven’t even started this drama. Uploading for now and collecting 720p’s for a rainy day. I’m all tuckered out; it’s been a looooong day. Judging from the preview, the more I see in your favor Airi.

    I dunno Kappy, seems like the world had lost all its brilliant writers. Did all great writers meetup, time traveled, and then got stuck in a time warp or something? Lost in space. Dun-dun-dun!!! LOL~ This Summer is all about REMAKES ’cause kidz are out making money during break and no time sitting around watching dramas. Remakes may be cheaper to produce. Who knows?

  4. 28 thoughts on “Tdrama: Fabulous Boys Episodes

    ditto kappy, hong sisters have lost their sparks for me. really, they are WOMEN and here i thought they would write drama celebrating a woman’s intelligence but all they do is churn our mundane personality for their female leads. i want to shake them SOOOOOOOOO HARD!!!

    Oh keane, ling isn’t subbing it anymore, she got mad that people are uploading her subtitle to dramacrazy. lol her post is so angry it’s unhealthy for me to finish reading. i understand that she’s mad but there are people out there who can’t afford to download and have to stream. and theres no way any team would be able to secure their subtitles off of streaming sites. i have seen chinese streaming sites uploading withs2 subs before, and it aint stopping anytime….unfortunately.

    sigh, one potential subber down.

      I have the right to be angry you know, I totally understand if people can’t afford to download stuff because of say bandwidth limitation but I specifically said not to and to do it behind my back lol that piss me off even more. If that uploader asked me I probably might make a special exception but the fact he or she didn’t?? like oh my god, and the fact the file isn’t sync correctly piss me off even more. I could have gave her a sync file you know? people deserve the best and doing things like that is really rude. I am not all that cruel, but I am very strict with how I handle my stuff but that uploader didn’t even bother to ask me and that got me so piss I am like gdoglkdgldksj right now. Well i am angry, still angry, and probably will be but I am subbing this drama still…just not for the public.

        i know you have the right to be angry Ling, i said I understand. It’s just too bad for the general public who follows your direction and now have nothing. have you tried contacting Dramacrazy people to take it down? that might be a good solution, a warning from the superior to their uploaders. lols.

  5. 28 thoughts on “Tdrama: Fabulous Boys Episodes

    So far it’s exactly the same. Taiwanese directors/writers are getting lazy now! and i want to see less of Jiro! He’s everywhere! LOL

    Less subber is always good for the Taiwanese drama community. -snark-

    Korean dramas get everything, timely recaps, various DL sources, many subbing team. Okay, done ranting!

  6. 28 thoughts on “Tdrama: Fabulous Boys Episodes

    Yes! I’m glad you’re uploading the episodes, thank you 😀 I can fill my hunger faster than the weekly tv airings.

  7. 28 thoughts on “Tdrama: Fabulous Boys Episodes

    where subtitle ???

  8. 28 thoughts on “Tdrama: Fabulous Boys Episodes

    there is a revised torrent for ep 3, just uploaded at d-addicts. You can watch the sub for ep 2 at youtube.

  9. 28 thoughts on “Tdrama: Fabulous Boys Episodes

    For those who want ep.03v2 from me, please be patient till Sunday comes around. Most likely you’ll see it up when ep.04 releases.

    Thanks y’all for keeping this post lively. ^ __ ^ v

      Aw, that’s pretty sweet.

      Hmmm, I wonder if Ling had anything to do w/ those subs. LOL! I really don’t need to read her healthy burst of rants. Huhu~

      I’ll give it a try… but if it’s one of those weird files like for the movie Play then I may drop the frustration all at once. Haha~ I’m too new to this krap. I can’t even save file format properly. LOL! Probably ’cause I’m using the lite app not the full version. I just don’t like installing programs after programs for little fixes here and there, if you know what I mean. Haha~

        actually i’m a chinese, watching the drama all along with the original chinese subs , I didn’t need eng softsubs for it. Anyway, I think without software usually should be able to time .srt softsub by manually, just use the windows notepad to open the file, to edit the .srt file.

        For example a sample .srt file should look something like this with the timing, and I see ep 1 that softsub there’s timing alrdy, just need to edit (change) the timing to an approximate correct timing with notepad for each line. Even though it is not that accurate than using software to time, but at least it gives an approximate timed softsub

        00:00:18,734 –> 00:00:20,151

        00:00:20,734 –> 00:00:21,800
        bye bye

        the first subbing line is Hello at the beginning 18.734 sec till ending 20.151 sec.

    Just caught up with this drama! Didn’t even know they were making a Taiwanese version of You’re Beautiful until this week, shows how up to date I am lol. As a huge fan of the original, I was slightly apprehensive about watching other versions. I think I watched two episodes of the Japanese version and then gave up, it just didn’t do anything for me unfortunately. Now this version is different, not only is it more faithful to the original, but it also captures some of my most favourite moments in true Taiwanese spirit, putting their own unique stamp on it. I’m actually surprised at how much I’ve taken a liking to it, two episodes in, and I’m sold.

    Whilst it may not be perfect, as nothing will ever beat the original for me, I do appreciate the subtle nuances they’ve brought out whilst still adhering to the original script. This is a high-end drama, and it shows. But of course that’s not the only reason for loving it. What I do like so far is how the characters have been portrayed; now the actors might be restricted to portraying their characters a certain way as per the script, but I do like how they’re slowly breathing life into these roles, setting them apart from the Korean version. Trying to mimic their every expression and acting style would have annoyed me tremendously.

    I appreciate adaptations a great deal more when they bring something new to it, and so far, the actors are trying their damned hardest to do this. And it shows. I’m now looking forward to the moment when they really make the characters their own and become completely comfortable with it.

    I’m not going to lie, Hwang Tae Kyung was my favourite out the bunch, not because of his pretty looks, but because of his 101 facial expressions which he always brought out effortlessly. And that really made his character work. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case for Jiro Wang. I was shocked when I found out he was playing this role as I’m so used to seeing him in quirkier roles. Perhaps this is why the stern expressions don’t come across as naturally. But I do like the way he looks and how he’s trying to ease himself into the role!! It’s definitely working, he’s just not quite there yet, but I’m more than willing to give him a chance, because I know, when the time comes, he’ll bring that something extra to his character – fingers crossed!

    I was extremely doubtful of the female character, but as soon as I saw her in action, all those doubts vanished. In fact, she’s probably my favourite out the bunch in terms of remaining faithful to the original character. Actually, I think I’m going to like her more as Go Mi Nam than Park Shin Hye! There’s a really dim naivety that Park Shin Hye displayed with her character which irritated me, but Cheng Yu Xi is hitting all the right notes; yes she’s still playing the same naive girl, but minus a lot of the dim expressions which I feel Park Shin Hye overdid at times!

    Hong Ki for me nailed it as Jeremy, period. He also had the baby face to go with it, whereas Evan Yo looks a bit awkward in the role. But he fits the bill fine I guess, so long as he captured Jeremy’s goofiness.

    And Hwang In Deok as Shin Woo is surprisingly good. Not that he has much to contend with, lol, as much as I love Jung Yong Hwa on Korean TV, his acting was pretty damn awful in the Korean version, in that all he had to do was stand there and look pretty. Mind you, a lot of it is also down to the way in which the character was written I suppose.

    Having said that, Hwang In Deok, hasn’t had to do much so far, but the few expressions he’s shown, already surpasses the wooden acting displayed by Yong Hwa, which is refreshing to see. And it doesn’t harm that he’s a lot more pretty to look at! I would happily root for the second lead in this adaptation depending on his chemistry with the female lead!

    All in all, I’m looking forward to seeing this drama right till the very end! Should be an interesting ride, if only to play tribute to the original!

      I just finished watching the Korean version about a month ago (which I liked), so it’s still fresh in my mind. But I’m also really enjoying this Taiwan version so far. With each episode, I’m seeing more deviations from the original. I like how Jiro’s character is sweeter and more caring to Gao Mi Nam in this version. And definitely agree that Cheng Yu Xi is doing a great job. I also think she may end up being the best Mi Nam as well (strongly agree with your assessment that Park Shin Hye’s portrayal had a dim naivety that was irritating and excessive).

    Lol yikes, sorry for the long ass comment. And thank you for posting your take on the drama thus far! I look forward to reading more.

  12. 28 thoughts on “Tdrama: Fabulous Boys Episodes

    For me, none can beat original version
    PSH as Go Mi Nam is the charm of drama, alongside JGS as Hwang Tae Kyung. I had watched K-drama since Endless Love, and in that time, i prefer TW-drama or J-Dorama. That is YAB which makes me K-drama addict until now <3 <3

    i love the remake. i believe jiro wang nailed his part well and his acting is far better than the original lead… it is a thumbs up for me since the cast really did well.. i don’t usually go for remakes as it sometimes ends up as a disaster. but, this one is just as good or should i say, i enjoyed it better than the original one.
