If Japan made a drama version of Skip Beat, who would you want the actors to be?

Sho Fuwa: Yamapi ... the jealous outburst will be so cute!!!!

Kyoko: Aya Ueto ... although Kyoko is such a cool character, she can be annoying at times ... i would be less annoyed if it's Aya

Ren: Matsujun ... can you imagine a drama with Yamapi and Matsujun? Talk about eye candy.



I totally love Matsujun... but I think he is not suitable for Ren's role... Too bad though...

I wonder why you would say Matsujun is unsuitable as Ren? I actually think he could pull off Ren's smile (the bright fake one and the gentle sincere ones) better than any Japanese actor that I can think of right now. In my opinion, the smile is a major part of Ren's character, because Kyoko freaks about it all the time. The cool nonchalant attitude has been done before. Plus, he is a great actor... meaning he can pull off Ren's talent as an actor. I mean, comparing his roles in Kimi Wa Petto, Gokusen, Hana Yori Dango, I'm In Love With My Sister, Kindaichi, etc etc. ... what's so unsuitable?

They did it for Glass Mask among other dramas, so it's not that much of a stretch.

I think he could pull it off... Shirota Yuu remains one of my top choices one of the main reasons I like him as Ren is because of his height and looks we don't necessarily need mainstream actors for these roles...

...um there have been multiple countries doing the same/similar dramas before... and from what I've read, it was Taiwan and not Korea doing it...

...anyways... so I was thinking ...and watching like a whole lot of dramas recently... and I am kind of hoping that if they were to cast someone for Yashiro-san... well that they would cast Kimura Takuya
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Kimura_Takuya
Dramas he was in: Change, Hero, Pride, Engine, Good Luck!! - all of these were fun to watch...

he's played several roles where he jokes around a little... and since Yashiro is all for setting up Ren and Kyouko and can be a little comical about his reactions to their "blindness" ... well, I thought he could do a good job

Don't put words in my mouth.. I didn't say he was SO unsuitable nor did I mention about his acting skills. I'm not trying to be mean or something like that... but is just because he's too short ...I completely believe in his abilities as an actor. I totally loved him (and still do) in Hana Yori Dango, Kimi wa petto, Bambino, Gokusen, etc. But one of Ren's characteristics is that he is really tall and also that he's half Japanese... I totally love Matsujun and I do think he can pull off a great Ren. But I'd also like the actors to have as much resemblance as possible to the manga characters... I know it might be impossible, but is just my opinion...

Finding someone that resembles Ren and that is a great actor might be impossible though... :(
Sorry, I don't want to offend anyone...

Matsujun is 173 cm (about 5 feet 6 inches)... that's a little short in comparison to Ren's height in Skip Beat. Ren's really tall with long legs... just like Sho. There was scene about the long legs... Didn't mean to put words in your mouth, but you are right about the height. Jun would be too short.

Ueto Aya as Kyoko IMO noo wayy.

I think Ueno Juri would be awesome as Kyoko, when kyoko gets worried about losing moko-chan I think ueno can pull of the sad/cute/dramatic look.

i love Ueno Juri but i think she cant pull off looking like a high school student. >.<
I think Ueto Aya is a better choice for Kyoko
