Nobuta Wo Produce (2005)

Even if KNT is just a movie and has more romance than NWP, but Sawako and Nobuta are somewhat alike and i believe that if you liked one you`ll enjoy the other too.

Both starred the dearest Kamenashi Kazuya in it, and it involves a weird girl being exposed to the tendencies of living a normal life. Both have a balance sense of comedy and drama, although YamaNade has more romance in it than Nobuta Wo Produce. Nevertheless, both are enjoyable and worth a watch! :)

Both about friendship within a high school theme without romance

both, at first glance, appear to have the same cliche plot: an average, unpopular girl being given a makeover so that many other people would like her.

Yet there is something about both these dramas that touches you. Makes you mesmerized in spite of yourself. Miss Korea is unexpectedly gritty, showing the more distasteful sides of the pageant without pulling any punches. The characters, even the supporting ones, have much chemistry and are fascinatingly acted.

Meanwhile, Nobuta wo Produce is a heart-warming story about a shy, isolated high school girl coming to her own and getting confidence. While it doesn't have any romance, the friendship she has with the two boys are one of the most touching I have ever seen. Both dramas can't be missed and while they are both extremely different in tone, their similarities might be just enough to make you like the other.

Both are dramas about bullying in high school. Nobuta wo Produce concentrates on comedy while LIFE goes much more deeper.
