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've watched all versions up to this point, and like this one. The episodes are shorter, leaving out much of the fluff that is not needed. The acting, in my opinion, is more believable. There is less overacting.

      I agree. I've seen every version (apart from Thai) and as much as I enjoyed the Japanese version, I feel as though Kotoko, although the actress did a good job on the whole, overacted a tad too much.

    I'm currently watching 'Miss in Kiss' and it's AWFUL - it's a reboot of the Taiwanese version, but it's followed the WORST parts of the KOREAN one.

    The writing is appallingly bad but, where the Korean one had a good cast to hold it together, this one does NOT. The ONLY cast member who is worth bothering to watch is Gong Yi Teng (who plays the 'Kinnosuke' second lead character called 'Jin Zhi Zhu' in this version). EVERYONE else, and I MEAN everyone, is AWFUL.

    The female lead makes you seriously wonder how she can walk and talk at the SAME time she's so thick and both she and the male lead ACT like they've been kidnapped and are merely refusing to co-operate with their captors by just mumbling and shuffling their way through the most boring drama in the world. At the other end of the scale the mother acts like she's either on speed and/or suffers from ADHD as she just gabbles away and flits around so fast she's like a damn humming bird.

    I've got to episode 33 of 39 in total (hosted on Netflix UK), but nothing more than sheer determination and stubbornness to see it through to the end. But it's so SLOW and so BAD - I've had to watch it in 15 minute bursts with breaks in between since episode 29, or I might've chewed my own face off.

    I seriously cannot say enough about how terrible this reboot is - when it was realised that Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng didn't want to do a third season of their BEAUTIFUL original adaptation; the powers that be should've left it alone. As it is now Taiwan has the dubious accolade of having the BEST version in the ORIGINAL of 'InK' but also the WORST version in the REBOOT.

    Really, I'm NOT joking, there will NEVER be a version worse than this one....even if we dress our dogs up and film them on our phones with us doing voice overs....it would STILL be BETTER than the Taiwanese reboot.

    So far I have enjoyed this remake. My only issue is I don't think the mains are quite as good as Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng. Not sure if its because of the shortened format or what. I just don't feel as much emotion from this version. At times I think Ester Wu plays the part a bit too childish.

    I know they finished filming Miss In Kiss. Has anyone heard from a legitimate source if they will also do the sequel/part 2?

      I believe there are no news yet, but Dino has said if this season is successful enough, they'll make a second one, so it's definitely on the table.

      But who knows what is successful to them. This is a webdrama, the only way to "count" the audience are probably through video views? No idea, but I'm so hoping this story can carry on, because Itakiss without the second season is basically an unfinished work (which it already is, but you know what I mean). We'll have to wait until this ends and see the feeback from the production team, from LINE TV, etc. Itakiss Love in Tokyo was also on the fence for a bit there but eventually S2 was produced!

      It is only a Webdrama on netflix. It is played on the regular TV network in several places in Asia with a pretty high rating.... I would think so but then again the Thai version has been rumored to have a sequel for 3 years with still no official word. The chinese remake was done 2 years ago and has yet to air. Soooo...nothing is for certain.
      This version of Miss in Kiss has had massive viewership with the power of netflix, so I would expect that there would be one eventually... especially with Dino and Esther becoming very close friends through the project.
      Anyway, I was expecting to hear something by now about a sequel, but I don't speak mandarin so getting updated on what's coming can be delayed. Thanks for responding.

    I'm currently abroad and because of that I've been able to watch Miss in Kiss on Netflix. But what will I do once I get back home? This drama is not available in my country :(((( The struggle!

      Use a USA V.P.N. Netflix is blocked in China even with a VPN but other countries should still be good.

    I think Esther feels awkward on acting as xiàng Qin or yue Qin here. It doenst look like she's giving her best. Unlike ariel, it looks so forced.

    I definitely like this version the best. The acting for Zhi Shu is probably my favorite, and the chemistry between Zhi Shu and Yue Qin doesn't seem to over the top and forced like some versions I've seen.

      Agreed on Zhi Shu! And also it seems to me that he's a lot more talkative in this version too? Like we see him striking a conversation with Yue Qin a lot of times, instead of brooding/being silent constantly. He still has that serious attitude but at the same time, he just talks a lot more here! I like that.

      Yes yes yes! At first I doubted the acting from the rookies but quickly fell addicted to this version! Can't say it topped the Thai version for me, but the conversations between Zhi Shu and Yue Qin (especially about stars and such) are so adorable and touching.

      I couldn't agree with you more.. In this version I love this couple's interaction with one another a bit more. Zhi Shu no longer carries himself like an unfeeling robot, he has a reserved calculated nature but you can see his human heart even if it's not overly exposed. He's softer, thoughtful toward Yue Qin even if he is not outright expressive about what he thinks or feels all the time. Yue Qin isn't annoyingly needy in this version. She is open about her love for ZS, she wants to be around him any way possible but she also respects him, she isn't super clingy...I think in this version you can see an underlined friendship even if they have different ways of communicating. :) ...I am just so happy he has some depth and she is not made out to be pathetic. I love what ZS said this week in 25 about Love being like dark matter... <3

    I feel like the guy that meets Ah Jin in eps 20-21 (security guard?) is making a cameo in reference to another drama but I don't recognize him.

    Not a bad drama so far, mother is still annoying though but at least the main lead isn't a huge ahole like in some versions.

      I still prefer them calling Jiang mama instead of a-yi.
