This was definitely an attempt to capture some of the excitement of You're Beautiful. Other than a female acting like a male, the similarities are totally different. The OTP recognize their attraction pretty quickly and the male lead, Park Yoo Hwan and female lead Go Eun Ah did a pretty decent job in acting. My only problem is this was obvious cut back in episodes so the last episode made no sense read more to me at all. I felt rush and a lot happened that was glossed over. But if you enjoy Kpop, the singers are very good and a lot of recognizable groups play supporting roles.

Oh how i wish this drama was 16 episodes instead of 14. i'm betting the ending would've been SO much better and not as rushed, my score definitely would be different.

But other than that, i actually enjoyed this drama! It reminded me a lot of You're Beautiful but after a while it didn't. I loved the cast. The main characters seemed to have ok chemistry and they were cute together but read more some things could've been better if anyone catches my drift :P

i liked the music they used/made. it was catchy and fun to listen to.
if the ending wasn't s bad i'd probably watch it again

Both are gender-bender dramas set in the music industry.
- Sompong Non Somchai is a lakorn, meaning a drama from thailand. It's about two girls forced to work for a music company as spys for the police. They have to dress up as men to pass off as male dancers.
- K-POP - The Ultimate Audition is a korean drama. It's about a girl dreaming of becoming a hip-hop legend. But she ends up in an audition for male idols...

    I have to watch this because of Kevin. Gah, he had a very minor role.

    Do not waste your time. I fast forward most of it. "You're Beautiful", inspite of some imperfections puts this drama to shame.

    i seriously can't believe i watched this .. completely all 14 eps .... well I'm not going to blame myself because i was new to kdrama land back then when i watched it and i hadn't figured my taste yet .. and the cheesiness and cringes that this drama shows was new to me so i guess i was driven by curiosity and fascination ?! ( not in a good way ) ... i don't remember it was like 3 years ago ... but it sure left an impression of the worst show I've ever seen .

    This is one of those dramas I never expected to actually watch. I was bored... came across it randomly while browsing for dramas. Needed something that you don't have to think very hard over. Finished it so fast I have no idea what happened, was it even that good? No? What...
