it’s fun, it’s made different than the Japanese version, while I’m watching this I’m always reminded of the Manga, The stories in J & K versions were different, because the Manga was long, so each writer choose different parts of the Manga, & like always in the Korean version they cancel people or events, so it's like something new.The Korean version was more dramatic while the Japanese version was funny, The read more Hana Kimi story line [Girl getting in guys school] I didn’t like it to begin with -sorry this is morals and ethics just silly even to think about it- no enough self value from the lead girl. for me the end was abit silly but not bad -can't say why it will be a spoiler-.

even thought Choi Min hoo couldn't act out all of the emotions right, I liked it, Toma got a hold of Nakatsu's character better since he wasn’t supposed to be cute, But I really love the way “Hyun Woo –Eun Gyul-” acts & talks, he’s really good and hardworking, Maki's [J version]acting didn't match the Image I had for the character at all[compared to the Manga]. I think Sulli is more suitable than Maki for the role her character is so close to the character in the Manga ... no even better.

Amazing so Addicting specially, Jmin, one, Teayeon & the sister[Jissica & Krystal].

Rewatch Value:
I won't probably watch the story, just some parts & scenes.

At first, watching the drama was pretty exciting. But then, I just can't stand the way the main actor is acting. It has no debt, and it's very cold and frozen. The story line is not special either, since its a remake. But the songs are good because they're supported by the SM Entertainment artists.

Episode 16 is the final, and it's out, but I really have no desire to watch it. read more Perhaps in the end, I'll watch it just for the sake of completing what I have started.

Both are school dramas and love triangle and the mainlead is very popular at school
Recommended by Penny Ong
Both have a girl sneakin' into somewhere only boys are allowed.
In both dramas, the lead male realizes the girl's gender sooner than others and also doesn't warm up with the girl quickly although others do. In both dramas, there's a fun male character falling in love with the lead female without knowing she is a girl. Some scenes even have the same scheme and feeling. I love both lead males :D

    I find myself thinking "are you serious? this Drama is ridiculous!" but in the best of ways. there's a great mixture of drama. comedy, romance, and cute moments. Love this drama! Also, the cast is FULL of big names (Minho, Sulli, Hyunwoo, Woobin Guest starring, Yura, Kwanghee, Daniel, etc)

    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!!!

    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.
