I have watched all the versions of Itazura na Kiss and I can confidently say that this is my favourite version!

Unlike all the other versions (Chinese, Taiwan, Korean and Japanese), which all follow the storyline almost exactly the same, the Thai version managed to add a twist in the show without changing the original story of a smart, aloof genius guy and a cute, kind and a little dumb girl. However, read more this version adds more depth to the story and in my opinion more explanation which the rest did not offer.

Kiss Me showed more emotions towards TenTen and not just blindly following Taliw's courting story. It showed the process of how TenTen ACTUALLY fell for her and the reason why he keeps on pushing her away which i think was a great change to the story. Furthermore, the entire flow of Kiss Me felt right and the pace was just nice. Not to mention how much chemistry our main leads have already seen in Full House Thai.

I think the two main factors why I thought this version won the others HANDS DOWN was because it answered ALL my questions for TenTen and also showed a more caring and sensitive side of him. Additionally, Taliw is also more understanding and also thinks more before she acts making her more likable and interesting. Another factor is definitely King. HE IS SUCH A CUTIE IN THIS SHOW. I usually don't like his role in the other versions as I always found him quite loud and usually does everything without much thought. However, King is such a charmer by his every move and how he is always so thoughtful and sweet towards Taliw. (To be honest, I think I have a little second lead syndrome because of him now....)

To add on to the awesomeness, ALL the characters did such a great job in their roles and every love line managed to tug a little at my heartstrings with their chemistry and how no one is really bad or hated in the show.

In conclusion, I will strongly recommend this drama to everyone. Its like the producer did everything that made Itzunara Na Kiss a success and omitted everything hateful about it. The difference made was definitely significant as the characters, especially TenTen, felt more complete and bearable in Kiss Me.

I'm a big fan of Itazura na Kiss but I have been a bit tired of all the identical adaptations of the story. Change the cast, the country, the music but everything else has been pretty much...similar and bland, yet as an Itazura na Kiss fan I had to watch Kiss me and..I loved it.

Itazura na Kiss is a fantastic story but reality is that is a bit outdated and doesn't read more really reflect society nowadays no matter how romantic one is or is not on my opinion. Kiss me instead of sticking to the original and become known as just another remake of the story, it elevates it to an entire new level by giving it their own spin of it and make it actual without compromising the essential storyline.

Naoki aka Tenten is fantastic to watch. He's relatable as a person, not the arrogant genious every other version tried to make him as. Yes, he's a genius but he's human and the humanity of the character that Mike D'Angelo portraits is what differs Tenten from all the other versions for me. Tenten is by far the most complete character of all the versions.
Kotoko aka Taliw...she's sweet and clueless at times and she's simple but she's caring and genuinely in love with Tenten without going overboard or being annoying like other versions I believe, which makes me like the character and empathize with her.

Kiss me is not a copy paste of the other versions, making it more authentic and interesting to watch. The soundtrack is also quite good.

Overall, it is a great adaptation of Itazura na Kiss!

    The ending was quite surprising. Didn't expect it. I didn't like the korean and Taiwan version of this drama but this one is worth to watch

      definitely! I'm so glad I watched it, it's now fighting for my all-time favorite adaption with Mischievous Kiss: Love in Tokyo. Though keep in mind that they didn't keep exactly to the character's backgrounds, though the story elements are mostly the same. Also, Tenten isn't as inconsiderate as other leads, you can tell what he's feeling and he clearly cares for Taliw. Those are bonus points for me, but I don't know how you'd feel about it, so I thought I'd warn :)

    I'm so angry with some of the structural changes that were made, mostly because they really screw with the potential of season 2. I ADORE season 2 way more than season 1, so while I did love some of the things they changed, fundamentally I'm really displeased with this version.

      No it's not. But as a whole I like part 2 better than part 1. In the other versions and hopefully in this one. But the structural changes they made make me think I might not when it does come out. I know their schedules are pretty busy.

    Love, love, LOVE!!! I loved especially how she turns him down! Finally a version where she tells him no! And the fact the he seems to enjoy stealing kisses from her whenever possible, unlike the usual 3 in the other versions.

    I find it a little boring at first and after watching 10 episode, I opt to put it on hold. It's such a great idea, because I enjoy the remaining episode. :) I like it that they put their own idea on this remake, that make it more sensible and enjoyable to watch.

    + The lead girl is not as dumb here as the other versions and has more of a pride
    +Lead guy is not as mean and rude here as the other versions
    +My favourite mom character in all the versions of this same story
    +Her had here is also my favourite in all the versions I've seen
    +His little brother is much sweeter than the other versions as well
    +Background story of the friendship between the parents

    -Tenten leading on Taliw until he changed his mind!
    -Nothing much to the story other than the main love triangle/square or whatever shape it is (no school activities, sports, school friends, school struggles) It's not that I'd hate a season 2, but they kinda cut out too many things right now and jumped in too far to make a story.
    -Finally, the fact the girl is not so dumb makes the whole relationship when they're together boring. Other Kotoko version did make me cringe a lot, but you always knew you're in for something interesting when she's around.

    Honestly I can't remember much of Playful Kiss and Itazura na Kiss love in Tokyo, but this one will remain. I just remember that I didn't like Playful Kiss but I found INKLIT cute.

    ISWAK is still my favorite version of this story, but this one is close behind. It's cute, funny, the actors are great, and we see more of TenTen's feelings than in any other version. It's really nice to see him falling in love for a change. But even if I loved it, no scene will beat Joe and Ariel in the rain in ISWAK!

    The things I loved the most here : the relationship between TenTen and his mother, the fact that TenTen is way gentler in this version, and the friendship between Taliw and Turbo (they were so cute ^^). Oh, and let's not forget beautiful Taliw and sexy Tenten (honestly, where do you find a guy who can make such a plain tee-shirt look so good??!!).
