I haven't watch the other version of this drama so I really couldn't compare and I would not want to compare. I will base my judgement on the categories above.
7 for the story because its to high-schoolish (my term). If I were a teenager, I may score it an 8 or 9 for the story. I think its written and meant for teenagers.
7 for acting/cast because they've given justice to read more the character. special mention to lee hyun woo...I like him in this drama...specially his character...he's pretty cool.
10 for music because I like the songs.
3 I'd be honest to say its not the kind of story you wanna watch again and again
Overall 7 because, in fairness, its pretty good..I had fun watching it..though some scenes are corny at times because its not really for my age..but if you want to reminisce high-school..you may want to consider watching this. **wink**

So given its quite familiar story, two adaptations Kdrama viewers can compare it with, I was just expecting how the following of the plot and turn of events will make me feel good, and I was not prepared it will hit me really good that my teenager self from 10 years ago assumed herself and was kicking her legs, giggling endlessly and hugging her pillow so tight in every surge of romantic read more scenes.

This is another teenage love drama at its best… no worries, just purely cuteness, sassiness and first love vibes. I will miss Eun-gyul’s social media shout-outs and weird mind wanderings, Jae-hee’s radiant smile and pure heart, and Tae-joon’s… well everything about him. *giggles

Candid and totally charming, To the Beautiful You will promise you smiles and refreshing feel. If you are looking for something serious or evil induced story, then you won’t find it here. Everything about it was lightly done even the conflicts. Simply laid, progressed smoothly and stopping at a happy ever-after note. jediprincess ^_^

High School themed dramas with eye-candy boys and ONE LUCKY girl. I found these two dramas alike because the characters seem also the same. Seo Kang Jun is Kang Tae Joon (Choi Minho) alike, Gong Myung is DEFINITLEY one with Cha Eun Gyeol (Lee Hyun Woo), Typhoon (Kang Tae Ho) - Ha Seung Ri, Yoo Il and Kwanghee's character (Song Jong Min) are also very much alike and also, Kim So Eun and Goo Jae Hee (Sulli). And also, the love triangle is almost the same.

In both dramas you can find the female lead and the male lead living together and fall for each other. And also, in both dramas the female lead chase the male lead.

    This looks a lot more serious and less bright colours and stupid comedy =/ anyone willing to let me know how different the mood is from the two Japanese ones? This one doesn't look as good =/ is it strange if I say it looks very Korean? xD

    They turned a live action into a way of comercialize SM Entertainment, kinda irritating the way their company gets in the way of their acting :/ Also, no chemestry btw the two of them, maybe cause they are friends in RL, its really a shame since Korean dramas are so well made!

    I personally enjoyed watching this drama but I don't think that this is amazing or anything. I finished this drama mostly because of Lee Hyun Woo though. But I love the last episode I think it's great :) Give this an 8

    I came here because I saw Hana Kimi the Japanese and Taiwanese version already, so I thought I was not going to watch other versions of it, but when I found out Min Ho was acting in the Korean Version, I knew I had to watch it even if the ending was what I might expect. I must say, I Love it so much! The fact that I did not want it to even end and I was also so curious to know the ending, omg it's worth watching! I totally fell in love with Tae Joon and Eun Gyeon character

    I'm glad I watched it because Min Ho smile is just too irresistible and Hyun Woo beautiful words of comparison as well as his feelings lured my heart :D

    This is a must watch! It's so heartwarming and it would make you scream and laugh like a crazy person dx Haha!

    I'm watching this because of my Minho bias and though I don't hate it I don't love it either. Sulli is very unbelievable as a boy to me and Idk why they didn't cast Amber from FX instead. Amber could pass as a boy but I also find her to be very cute tho that may just be my opinion..lol!!!

    I'm a huge fan of hana kimi, I will say at first I didn't like this drama but I still watched it all. Well I decided to rewatch it and even though it didn't exactly follow the storyline or include more info about the dorm leaders - I begun to enjoy and appreciate it more. Especially with Minho playing the main role and you start to see that the character begins changing as the episodes go on and I'll have to say it's going to be a favorite of mine now.

    Now I've read the manga....sorry to say it but I don't think this has much to do with it :( And I've also watched the J version which is much better in my opinion, much more funny... maybe this k version has more romance in it, but anyway I don't think the two leads have much chemistry...

    Watching this drama. Now at 11th episode. I really hope this doesn't have "After XX years" type ending. I really hate those.
