Well, in my week of vacation I got the fine service of web, finally web at my moms place! Luckily it's actually a lot faster at home than here at my school, but that's life! - So in my time of being alone, I fell upon a old hobby of mine; Drama! Or maybe Dorama, I fell in love all over again! My first drama ever was Hanazakari no Kimi Tachi e aka Hana Kimi the Japanese version of the series. I fell in love with the plot and characters, great acting and typical drama - GREAT. And then I fell over some Korean ones, "You're Beautiful" or You are Beautiful.
"Gemma (real name; Mi Nyu) is a sister-in-training. Her twin brother Go Mi Nam successfully auditions for the idol band A.N.JELL but is forced to leave for the United States to correct a botched plastic surgery.
Mi Nyu is approached by Mi Nam's manager to pose as Mi Nam while he recovers. She is against it at first but agrees in order to fulfill her dream of finding their mother.
Now, posing as Mi Nam, Mi Nyu enters the group A.N.JELL and meets its members: Hwang Tae Kyung, Kang Shin Woo and Jeremy. Tae Kyung and Mi Nam have a rough start as band members.
In the very first episode, Kang Shin Woo discovers that Mi Nam is a girl, but he keeps quiet because he is curious about what might happen. He discreetly helps her keep the secret and nobody realizes that he knows her true gender. Soon after that, due to an incident, Tae Kyung also discovers that Mi Nam is a girl, and confronts her about it. He actively takes on the responsibility of protecting her real identity from others (partly due to Mi Nam's manager begging him), which brings him and Mi Nam closer together. Slowly all the band members - Shin Woo, Tae Kyung and Jeremy - fall in love with Mi Nam(although Jeremy tries hard to deny it because he thinks Mi Nam is a guy). Eventually, Mi Nam admits her gender to the entire band, and they all help keep her identity secret until her brother arrives from the USA. The series ends when Mi Nam, as her real girl self, finally gets together with Tae Kyung."
When though it might sound cheesy or over used or something along bad! When you first see it, you can't stop liking it. Only if you actually hate drama or something fucked up as that, no drama in the world could be good, only if I told you it wasn't a drama but, fuck it :D
Park Shinhye (Shin Hye) as Go Mi Nam/Go Mi Nyu (Vocal/ Panist)
Jung Yonghwa (Yong Hwa) as Kang Shin Woo (Guitar/ Backup Vocal)
Lee Hongki (Hong Ki) as Jeremy (Drums/ Backup Vocal)
Jang Geunsuk (Geun Suk) as Hwang Tae Kyung (Lead Vocal)
Uee (Kim Ju-Yin) as Yoo He Yi (National 'fake' Fairy)
Park Shinhye is really cute acting as Go Mi Nam! I really like her character, she seems in real life a bit more mature and not at all that shy and scaredy cat like as Go Mi Nam (Go Mi Nyu) I really like how she acts and her emotions for Hwang Tae Kyung, they really make a cute couple.
Jung Yonghwa plays this really charming and kind character Kang Shin Woo, is a very mature and gentle person who looks out for Go Mi Nam, knowing that she is a girl and falls in love with her. He is such a pitiful character! I felt so bad for him, when she started to fall in love with Hwang Tae Kyung! And Shin Woo just helped her instead, I really felt bad 'cause he really just is this caring prince charming! A great character, one you quickly take a liking too after the first episodes.
Uee, which actually is her stage name, so Ju-Yin plays the double faced girl idol Yoo He Yi who out to the public is this sweet angel, that helps everyone but, her real personality is selfish, arrogant and rude. Which Hwang Tae Kyung finds out rather quickly, she is a bitch in my opinion. END
Jang Geunsuk have the role of Hwang Tae Kyung, the lead singer in A.N.JELL, his character is really sleek in the beginning but, as the series goes on you start to like him more and more! He has all these epic things about him, first his hygiene obsession! It's so hilarious, lol. He has Night blindness, he can't see in the dark, not at all if there's not a small candle light he can't see anything! Which leads to many funny moments.
Lee Hongki plays the british korean boy from England, Jeremy! He is a very childish character, super cute and funny. He cares very much for his Hyungs, Shin woo-Hyung and Hwang Tae Kyung-Hyung and likes Go Mi Nam, even before he finds out that he is a she which just makes him even more happy, knowing that he is not "in love" with a boy! He has a dog called Jolie, Angelina Jolie - Super epic! The way he calls on Jolie is sooooo cute! I love his character acting very much! I wish he had to play a "naughty" role instead or atleast a little more naughty as Jeremy but, otherwise he's perfected played!
I'll say this is defiantly my favorite drama ever! I've even bought the DVD box and a few posters, thinking about buying some posters of the persons playing in the drama and even a calender for 2011-2012! I really love it!
So see it! It's warmly recommended by me ;D
10/10 It's almost better than Hana Kimi's epic'ness!
Over and out// - Haku, Weiiss
