The casting for the main characters of this drama was fantastic! Jiro Wang did a superb job playing the role of stuck up band member with a tortured past. Le Le is a newbie actress and this is the very first drama that I’ve seen her in…but her acting was absolutely fantastic as well. Her chemistry with Jiro was intense and definitely a 10. Le Le’s portrayal of an innocent nun in training was impressive and believable.
I starting watching this drama with some reservations because I’ve watched the Korean version of this “You’re Beautiful” and that drama was awesome. So I was a little concerned as to how this one will be with Jiro playing the lead because Jang Geun Suk is hard to beat.
After watching this drama, I can’t say that Jiro beat Jang Geun Suk…but that he portrayed Tai Qin a little more differently than Jang Geun Suk. Jiro’s portrayal of Tai Qin was more mature and reserved, while Geun Suk’s portrayal of Tae Kyung was more childish and borderline nutty. Both played their characters well but they were very different.
Overall, this drama had just enough give and take between the lead characters, plenty of comedy, and tons of charm to keep it on my 9 and up list. The only reason I gave it a 9 was because many parts of the drama were extremely similar to the Korean version and I couldn’t help but mentally compare. Even though many parts were similar, I still thoroughly enjoyed this drama. If you haven’t seen the Korean version then this drama will definitely be a 10. However, if you’ve already seen the Korean version, then you can look forward to a different Tae Kyung portrayed by Jiro. You’ll be surprised by the ending because it’s not the same as the Korean version. In my opinion, it is actually a better ending.
Hwang Tai Qin (Jiro Wang) is the lead singer of a music group called A.N. Jell. He is a cold, menacing, person with a tormented past. Due to distressed vocal chords, the president of his recording company decides to bring in another lead singer, Gao Mei Nan, to tide him over.
This is a great opportunity for Gao Mei Nan but he is out of the country. His manager, Mark, decides to get Mei Nan’s twin sister Mei Nu to impersonate him until he returns.
Gao Mei Nu (Le Le) is an innocent girl training to become a nun. After much begging from Mark, Mei Nu enters A.N. Jell as Gao Mei Nan. She will have to practice, live, eat, and sleep with the group.
What will transpire between Mei Nu and all the band members?
