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 get that, but they should have considered that the two (kdrama and manga) are totally different. I'm an avid reader of mangas, I have a soft heart for shoujo, I like the silliness of every girl main lead and the cool aura of the boys. But if applied to kdrama it becomes different. The biggest factor to be considered is the portrayal of the characters. And I think Joy is failing that. I just hope she gets better.

      I agree! As a lover of both, manga and kdrama, as well, I completely agree with you on that. I think instead of focusing what is right for the kdrama genre they're trying to portray it just like what the manga is like. It might just be a stylistic choice or even the choice of the mangaka (I'm just listing possiblities but I've got no clue lmao, maybe they're also just not finding the right balance). But I do agree they're leaning way too heavily on that and thus the characters seem awfully unrealistic. Still, it is also aimed towards teenagers so that is an aspect you have to keep in mind.
      I like Joy and her acting, but even though I didn't read this specific manga from my wide range of shoujo that I have watched, I can agree that she is portraying it only meh.

    I really like the actors and the story but it just has so many flaws it's becoming harder to watch... you can really see that its a manga adaption bc these characters are so clearly from a shoujo manga that it basically hurts lmao.
    I think it's important to know that and think about it before watching this drama - when i was younger I read so many shoujo mangas and their characters and story flows were all exactly like this. I'll still continue watching tho lmao since I love the actors a lot.
    Just this story is heavily aimed towards teenagers imo

      It's pretty obvious that the target audience is teenagers! Also, I agree! Some things are so ridiculous! I've never read any manga, shoujo or not, but I trust that you're right about it

      yes!! i think that's why people have to stop judging it and hating it for what it is which is a show aimed toward teenager audiences and also a shoujo manga adaption. i don't think people would watch a childrens show and judge it the way they'd judge a movie aimed towards adults!!
      and yeah you can trust me, i've read my hundreds of shoujo mangas as a teenager and these characters are all alike!

    I can't watch this I read the manga and it is infuriating. Like I thought it would be like Nana, which injects a bit of reality into the series with all the drama...the characters were just so annoying.....

    I feel so sorry about Chanyoung. I mean I know that most of people find him really irritating but I totally understand why he behaves like that. I think it's well shown and presented in episodes and if I was a person who experienced such things, I think I'd behave in a similar way.

    I don't think there's a single character that's better than any of the rest as of the latest episode. They're all flawed, fumbling to find their way, and making mistakes.
    (This isn't including the chubby friend though lol)
