Just finished this ~~ 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 ~
