For people who have read the original story and enjoyed the first adaptation of Hana Kimi (Japanese), then this would be disappointing. They changed some minor character's personalities and traits and added some of there own to add more drama, or so I think. If you were expecting it to be funny like the first Hana Kimi, then you would also be disappointed because this drama lacks that kind of humor. This read more version also changed minor minor events, that make the main characters seem superficial, like making the main guy, played by Minho, to be a celebrity and making the girl, played by Sullie, have a more fangirl-like reason to dress up as a boy.
Without comparing to the original, I thought that the actors and actresses were decent. I really liked who they picked for the girl role and thought she played her part very well. Also the main male role was also very well played. I wouldn't say that the rest of the cast was mediocre, but because they changed some of the personality traits, like the guy who is supposed to play the Korean version of Nakatsu, I got annoyed with them at times. All in all, the show was made into a good drama, but it's not something that I would deem as very great either.

I guess I'm a little biased because I love Choi Min Ho and SHINee but putting that aside, it's hard for a drama that was based off of a manga to be bad (when it comes to plot line at least). I love this drama because it's not to fast or too slow and character development is really lovely throughout the series. On top of that I feel that ALL of the read more actors are good and have a place in the show which I often don't feel in most dramas. Each of the characters are very important to the show and they all have definite purpose. I would definitely recommend this drama to all kpop/ drama fans especially. The music is absolutely fantastic! I would have to say that was my favorite part of the drama!

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.

    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!!!

    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.

    I have only watched one episode but my impression is that this is barely an adaption of the original Japanese drama but a drama that is loosely based on the Japanese one that has some basic similar plot points. The atmosphere and feel of the drama is way different; this one comes off as kind of dark while the Japanese version was very light-hearted and slapstick. In my opinion, other than the basic plot they are two completely different dramas. But I would have to say that this one really didn't leave me amazed, but it isn't terrible enough for me to drop...yet.
