LOL I know! Why are we doing this now?


I agree too. This is bs aha


I concur. There's nothing to compare or contrast other than looks. I'm looking forward to the Korean version, but I don't think it will top HYD. Out of HYD and MG, Matsumoto Jun was the better Tsukasa.

We'll see.


waaah it's all about looks these days... I just hope it good. Japan version will always be my faav though :)


(edit)

Yeah, seriously. The man who is playing Rui's character looks a lot like Oguri Shun, but that doesn't mean he will act as well as he did, ya know?

Wonder why they didn't include Meteor Garden in this thread? It was the first live action.


Yea who is that guy anyways? Evryone seems to know him.. actually, I don't think I know any of the actors or the actress playing the roles! Are they new or have they done other dramas too?

Meteor Garden was good but i prefer hyd & which more popular these days so that's probably why.

MG was okay, Shancai's character was entirely too stupid and harsh towards DMS most of the time though.

Actually, I can't say that I know any of the actors listed. Nor do they look familiar. I think 1-2 of the guys are in music groups(?) Yeah. I thought Kim Bum sounded familiar at first, but I dunno.

Here's a brief summary:



Lee Min Ho will play the Japanese manga role of “Tsukasa” aka “Goo Joon Pyo.” The character of Goo Joon Pyo will be the heir to the Shinhwa Group Enterprises and the leader of the F4. Lee Min Ho has already participated in the drama “Run Mackeral”, “I am Sam”, and the movie “Our School’s ET.” The production company explained that Lee Min Ho was casted for his dark-lined face and his height which towers over 180cm.

Romantic and Quirky young man “Yoon Ji Hoo” (Rui in the original Japanese version) will be played by SS501 Leader Kim Hyun Joong. Kim Hyun Joong was cast the earliest out of the main 4 and has received acting training since then. With the announcement of the casting news, there has been many comments about how he fits the role.

The remaining two F4 members “Seo Lee Jung” and “Song Woo Bin” (Soujiro and Akira in the original Japanese version) will be played by talent Kim Bum and boy band T-Max’s Kim Jun.

I'll wait to see it before making any final judgements, but the chick is just a bit to cute in my opinion to fit the character the main (tsukasa) dude at least looks tough enough to fit the character ( No Offense to Mastumotosan fans), Jun Mastumoto just never really won me over as Tsukasa, made me think of being attacked by a teacup poodle, which is hardly the intimidating figure Tsukasa's supposed to portray(I like him in other roles, just not a fighter type) I thought Jerry did a better job of it in Meteor Garden. AS for the role of Rui, Shunsan did a good job (although I really like MG's as well) so it'll be tough with that one, the subtleness of the character is a tough one to pull off.....

Either way, I'll be watching it.... and no matter what a Korean version whether good or bad is guaranteed to be better than any american version they could ever possibly come up with!!!

I stopped watching the second season of Meteor Garden after the first few episodes. It was veeeery disappointing. Apparently the male lead (Lee Min Ho) is an actor as well as Kim Bum. However, Kim Hyun Joong and Kim Jun are both boybanders.

As for the female lead, Goo Hye Sun, she's been in (or will be):


* Boys Before Flowers (KBS2, 2008)
* Strongest Chil Woo (KBS2, 2008)
* The King and I (SBS, 2007)
* Pure 19 (KBS1, 2006)
* Ballad Of Suh Dong (SBS, 2005)
* Nonstop (MBC, 2005)
* Drama City (KBS2, 2004|2005)



Goo Hye Sun was chosen eventually because she fits Tsukushi’s image well; the public had tossed her name around a lot as a prospective Makino when the drama was first announced. She was in fact one of the front-runners in the numerous polls.


She looks rather girly, but looks can be misleading. Hopefully, she can pull of Makino's hardcore attitude.

HAH. Now that you mention it..I wonder what an Americanized version would be like..

Then again, I did stop watching TV due to it's ignorant shows and converted to Asian dramas instead.

Oh, and MatsuJun totally won me over as Tsukasa. The whole innocent, pissed off, yet loving portrayal was great. I liked Jerry a little more on the romantic/goofy side. I wish they'd do a remake of both shows or something There were so many things I would have taken from MG and put into HYD and vice versus. Like Jerry's dancing moments. I loved those, haha.

Anyways. Korean HYD hwaiting?

No, it comes out next year.

And I'm actually amazed how no one has went OMFG YEH FOR MAKINO yet in this thread, unlike the other ones.

The actor for Makino in the Korean version can pass off as her looks wise if you look at screenshots from her other dramas where she isn't so... glamoured up.

Hopefully it'll be good, unlike MG. MG's first season was okay I guess (like someone else said, Shancai was kinda annoying), second season was terribad.

I don't like the idea of making the scene where they first meet, at a dry cleaners? (it was something like that lol). I liked the who high school setting/red note thing more.

i jus lyk the overall storyline, so hpfulli the korean version wnt ruin it.
itll be hard to beat HYD though, the japanese culture jus fitted the storyline perfectly unlike MG and i still rek towards de end of MG was quite ridiculous. HYD made more sense!
