K-dramas and TW-dramas have different attack when it comes to acting. Korean actors/actresses tend experiment with their facial expressions while Taiwanese actors/actresses seems like they would always want to look beautiful in their dramas.

Korean actors are good in delivering funny lines while Taiwanese actors are good in showing their affection thus the combination of having both Korean and Taiwanese actors in the drama made it more hilarious bec of GHS and read more made it more romantic bec of Jiro and Kun Da.

The only problem I noticed was the dubbing voice for GHS bec it sounds exaggerated and high pitched but other than that ABSOLUTE BOYFRIEND is exciting to watch =)

I also noticed that Jiro Wang seem to look different..He looked handsome and appealing now compared before. It might have something to do with the hairstyle..it made him look good and matured. As for GHS whatever hairstyle she has she still looks cute and adorable!!!

I got so excited about this drama because Jiro is finally back, and also because Extravagant Challenge is a disappointment, to say the least (I couldn't bring myself to watch past ep. 3, even though Siwon is the lead).

Jiro's acting has matured so much, along with those chocolate abs

Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Koo Hye Sun, but I find her acting here is too much with the dubbing not helping whatsoever. I am watching this because of her and saw the Japanese version which is good. Last I saw Jiro Wang was in ISWAK 1 and 2. He looks so different now...more sexy with leaner face.
I say I'll give this drama a try while waiting for read more my Korean dramas for new episodes.

I love this story - I've read the manga and also have seen the Japanese version. This version seems to be a combination of both stories (in the manga, Soshi was her neighbor and childhood friend - but she's a high school student. In the Jversion, Soshi is her boss and she meets him at the office).

My main issue I can see with this version (at least for me) is Koo read more Hye Sun. The dubbing isn't that good and I really don't think she's a good actress....and I find her annoying (she always makes these weird faces at random moments, too).

I do plan on continuing this drama because of Jiro and the other guy (Xie Kun Da) - what Koo Hye Sun lacks they make up for - and the music is really good, too! So so far...having mixed emotions.

I started wtching this drama without really having seen any of the other versions. The reason for it would plain and simple be that I love Jiro Wang.

For a first episode to always keep you this aware when watching is extremely rare. It is something you only can seem to find when you actually really really love a drama.. Only one episode has been aired until now of this show now read more replacing Skip Beat! on the taiwanese movie stream. A Great first episode. I got a feeling that this drama is among the kinds that will make you cry later though. Annoying how it really is nothing but thirteen episodes.

Well it is not what I expected, but it is totally worth it to watch Jiro. I don't rly care for the Korean actor's/actresses doing Taiwan drama's unless they speak the language. U can tell this is dubbed over & the acting doesn't rly go well w/ the voice. But it doesn't matter anymore b/c Jiro totally stole all focus to his character. I am watching to see what Jiro does b/c read more I haven't ever watched the Japanese version of this. But, I guess that is my plan for the wkend. Once u get past bad acting of Ku Hye Sun then it is ok & seems to be promising b/c Jiro is good at making drama's have a life of their own.
