The story revolves around a fictional boy band named A.N.JELL. The management company of the idol group A.N.JELL insisted on adding a new singer to the group as the lead vocal, Tai Jing's voice was hurting. However,the new member, Mei Nan, had to go to the States to repair a botched eye job just before signing the contract. His agent came up with the idea of having his twin sister, Gao Mei Nu a nun-in-training who has to pose as her twin brother and take his place in the group and to stand in for him. The two of them grew up in an orphanage and Mei Nu, who was all set to become a nun, agreed to this charade as she didn't want to spoil her brother's chance of fame which would make it easier to look for their mother.
Cast & Credits
I found FB to be more romantic, which is one of the reasons I love Asian Dramas.
Jiro Wang nailed the part!! But perhaps I am biased becuae I liked him in "It started with a kiss." Here I saw a more mature, manly and serious version of him and I totally loved him!
We can clearly see how he slowly develops feeling for Gao Mei Nam.
He is not so childish as Tae Kyung and more jealous! Always a plus for me!
Lee HongKi will always be my Jeremy , but Evan Yo is adorable!
Hwang In Deok was good, but he did not stand out like the other characters or like Jung Yong-hwa did in YAB.
The main actress was so cute! Even though it was obvious she is still new at acting. But overall I found her adorable!
What I also liked was the way they were dressed, because the clothes they wore in YAB, in my humble opinion were over the top.
The music was ok, but the songs did not move me the way the YAB OST did.
All in all, a great drama! I highly recommend it!
Gonna give this 9/10 which is better grade than what I gave to the original (8/10).
Even though it dragged at some points in the middle, I liked how they made it different from original version. At some points especially in the beginning it seemed like an exact copy of the original.
The ending, the "double scene" (you know what I mean haha), them kiss scenes and the acting itself was better than in the original. Except that some characters *cough* Xin Yu and the reporter *cough* were way worse and not as natural or funny like in the original version.
What comes to the acting in general:
- I didn't like how Jiro Wang was missing the "Hwang Tae Kyung" style aka the facial expressions. They were in Japanese version so I was hoping them to be in this one too.
- Su Li Wen was annoying when she was playing Mei Nu playing to be her brother. But when she was playing Mei Nan himself she was kickass. I hope they would've showed more interactions between the twins haha
- As I mentioned above... Hwang In Deok playing Shin Woo / Xin Yu was awkward. A big minus from that. He was worse than Kim Hyun Joong in BOF (Don't kill me. I love KHJ btw)
- Evan Yo as Jeremy was super adorable yet he couldn't reach the level of the original Jeremy played by Lee Hong Ki.
There were no annoying characters in this one. I remember how I hated the mom in Korean version and the biach in Japanese version.
I liked the music in this one of course. I also like how they changed the "Otteokhajeo" to a completely new song. Points from that ~~
But the original one is the best one to me because it's the original and special to me.
Would I rewatch this? No.
Funny, because I can rewatch the original many many times and so far I've rewatched it like 3-4 times.
I guess there is some "magic" in the original one always hahaha XDD
By the way, the Japanese version got 6/10 from me. I can't even remember anything from it...
While I was watching this Taiwanese version I could see the Korean version in my head all the time. Which is why I was always surprised when they added some new things to this version ^^
I think that's all I have to say. Thanks for reading this ~
