They are both about the love for music with elements of a school setting. Also the female falls in love with the male first in both dramas.

The Korean Drama is based off the Japanese drama that was released in 2013. same story. the Japanese drama was good, loved the songs. I think the Korean drama will have more twists in the plot. but so far looks great

    I know I'm not supposed to compare It to the manga, but I just thought Sorim is portrayed pretty weak in the drama.. It's a bit off-putting since Riko was a much "stronger" character in the manga (in my opinion), but oh well - the drama and the manga is supposed to be different - It's honestly not even the same story lol.

      Right! And Chanyoung treats Sorim better than Hankyul does. Hankyul is always changing his mind and hurting the girl, but Chanyoung never deceived her and always cared for her. I don't get why people hate him. He doesn't do anything evil.

    I think you should try to put yourself in Seo Chan Yeong's place, I know they didn't meant to treat him like an outcast, but it turn out that way. At first I didn't get his attitude either, but now I feel pity for him.

      I don't like it when he forces her to hug him. Just because he's a star doesn't mean she has to be his teddy bear. Keep those hands to thyself!

      It's not, don't lose your time (really). It's cliché and bad (my opinion).

    Han Kyeol is one of the most asshole characters I've ever seen.

    why does everyone hate chan yeong?!?!? I think his character is so good and i feel so sorry for him :( he's just struggling to find a place to fit in, id be angry at everyone and everything if i went through that too.
    but anyway JIN WOO IS SO FUNNY he's becoming my absolute favourite xDDDD
    the whole cast for this is really well done -- even the crude play boys have such amazing on screen bromance!! and han kyeol's dad is an amazing actor.
    love itttttt ill be sad when this ends T_T

      Totally agree with you. The way he acts it's simply a reaction to everything that has happened to him, and also, I don't get it why people say he's an asshole to Han Gyeol since in the movie his character is not close to any of the Crude Play members, and this is because they never really let him in

      In the Japanese source material he wasn't that close either, but that isn't the point. In the source material the character is more independent and stronger. Had a lot of depth. Wasn't a whiny, woe is me, the world is out to get me type of character. I don't like what the Kdrama has done with the character just for the sake of a cliche love triangle.

      Tbh I haven't read the manga or watched the Japanese movie so I have nothing to compare it too - maybe everyone who read the source material are the ones who think he doesn't live up to what he could be haha. From just the kdrama perspective though I think he's relateable!!!!

      For me the way they changed Han Gyeol's personality annoys me more, all the depth and conflicts his original character had are either gone or treated superficially...
      But I knew since the beginning the characters wouldn't be the same, as any korean adaptation, so I'm not so attached to that

    This drama can get really annoying at times and to be honest, most of the time the acting is not good, but why do I still like this drama?

      For me, it's because of Lee Hyun Woo.

      I think he's actually one of the best things in this drama. The reason I continue watching is because of him and Lee Jung Jin. I also like the father story.

    Going alright so far. Wish it were more interesting. Has definitely veered far away from the manga source material. The story has changed completely besides the HS trio debuting. And I really hate what the Kdrama has done to the equivalent Chan Yeong character in the manga.

    Chan Yeong's character in the manga was so much more interesting and had a lot of depth. He was also a strong character and talented. The Kdrama seems to have given Chan Yeong the talent to be great at bass, but suck at everything else. And turned him into a petty, jealous, annoying character that wants whatever isn't his. The Kdrama appears to have butchered that character just for the sake of a love triangle cliche.

      You're absolutely right. They could have made Chan Yeong character grow musically but instead they ruined his good traits and made him pathetic, pushy and evil minded.
