Story: This is a story that's been with me for a long time. I started with the anime, and have then watched the other drama remakes over time, so it will be hard for me not to compare in this review.
It's not a unique story to say the obvious. It's very cliche, but it's a guilty pleasure of mine to re-watch different versions of this cute story. I've watched the Korean read more and Japanese version, but I have to say, I think out of all the remakes, I like this one the most. I felt that the other versions lacked something that this one had, and that's individuality. While the others felt like just another cliche, Miss In Kiss acknowledged that it was a story that's been done before and added it's own tune. The vibe this drama gave off was very cute and light hearted; it was easy to watch, especially with the short episodes. No sub plots were dragged out and the pacing this drama had felt right. I actually don't think there's anything I dislike about this drama other than the fact that I thought a few scenes and reactions could have been done a bit differently.

Acting/Cast: I felt that the characters in this version was the most believable. Zhi Shu didn't act like a cold emotionless psychopath like the other versions portrayed him to be, and I was glad to actually see him smile and cry whenever he needed to. He was much more human and realistic while still keeping the stereotype of an intellectual yet cold guy, I really enjoyed Lee Dino's take on this character. I loved Yue Qin in this as well, she wasn't as obsessed like in the Japanese version. She was just a normal girl who had a crush on a guy, but just couldn't let go. She was a very cute character.
Yue Qin and Zhi Shu's relationship was well developed, in no way did I feel their progress was rushed or could have been done better. I liked Ah Jin and Zi Yu in this version the most as well, they had much more character and I didn't feel that they were just getting in the way of the two leads.

Music: The OST was very cute and matched the vibe of the drama perfectly. I usually don't focus too much on the music in a show unless it really stands out, I found the soundtrack quite catchy and original.

Re-watch Value: If I'm ever in the mood for a light hearted and fluffy story, I might consider watching certain episodes than the whole thing, but I wouldn't mind watching the whole thing again either.

Overall: I feel that this drama did a great job in making it's own version of the story. It didn't feel like just another re-make, it felt original and stood out from the rest. I look forward to a possible season 2.

This is a Thai version of the Japanese manga Itazura na kiss, it has a different feel to all the other versions.

I know it's older than the others recommended, but it's really the one that started them all. Like all of the adaptations, the plot strays a little from the source material.

    I like how the main lead guy is not a complete jerk and cold that I can see him smile slightly.

    It's quite amusing how there are so many remakes of the same show in different counties.. just pick your favorite language and go with the flow. haha

    Lol I didn't even though they did another remake! I wish they would do more remakes of Skip Beat T_T. Anywho, i think it's a fairly good remake, I can see that this version of Irie is not as cold as the other versions. I mean he actually replied to her when she gave him the love letter. I think the other ones straight up ignored her lol. But I'm cool with that. I will watch til the end anyway cuz I love the story in general ^_^.

    I've watched all versions (including anime) and this one was probably my least favorite. The male lead's acting does get bearable after around ep 12-13 though, so if you can hang in there, have extra time on your hands, and love the story then go for it! This is forever my guilty pleasure series though :')

    I swear I'm going to fail my exam a while back in school.
    It's nothing special compared to other versions and the real story tho..
    It's actually my least fav out of all..
    But the plot is really good that I can't help watching the same story all over again.

    The main leads here, I don't really like. They're not really good in acting.
    I really like GYT (Jin Zhi Zhu) tho!
    He's really into his role and he's really good looking!! Looking forward for more of him!

    diminuíram o tempo dos episódios e aumentaram a quantidade deles... Focaram mais no casal, tirando algumas cenas ótimas com outros personagens... mas como todas as outras versões, deixaram os detalhes principais. Gostei de terem mostrado mais o lado do "Naoki"/Zhi Shu... minha versão preferida ainda é a Love in Tokyo, mas gostei dessa versão também!
