Ikemen Desu Ne, Japanese spin off of the K-Drama You’re Beautiful.
Mio/Miko Sakuraba and Ren Katsuragi, were pretty accurate in relation to the Korean counterparts: Ko Min am and Hwang Tae-Kyeong. My first impression, this drama was basically a summary of the original. But to be fairly honest, that was because I saw the original first. So in actuality, the pacing probably would seem normal has I seen this version first.
My favorite episode, was when Jang Keun-Suk made his cameo appearance. That episode, I laughed so hard. Mio was clueless and the rest of the band watched her interaction with JKS in horror. And, when the shoot was all done. He revealed to Ren, that he knew the truth, confirming what was pretty obvious to the audience.
All in all, this was pretty fun to watch. I would definitely recommend it for it’s quirkiness. I’d also suggest, watching this one before the K-drama version. I’ll post the link below, for my thoughts.
