Okay, so my goal of Dramaland, currently, is to watch EVERY version of this story and this was my second. I don't know how long it's been since I watched this one, but I remember that it left an impression. The story sucks. It's guilty pleasure, but I love it. I love it so much but I know that if the actors can't pull off the characters, it will be completely awful. Story: What I like about this version is that they change up the story, it's not the same as the others. It has it's similarities, but I feel like this is the most original out of the one's I've seen. Looking back on watching this now.. I really think this one takes the story further than the rest. It really fills in the characters and what they are thinking. Mike's character isn't as much of mystery in this one and he doesn't "tease" her a lot like the other boys in their respective versions. And their separation really lets you in on their thoughts and King and Aom's character actually get understood more than just thrown together for the sake of plot. Another thing about this story is you truly love her in the end because she learns. She doesn't make the same mistake 3 times. She doesn't do things blindly just because it's what her heart tells her. I feel like this is her smartest representation and I wish that the rest had followed suit... not gonna lie. Acting/Cast: Oh geez, these two are amazing together- if you haven't seen Full house-Thai, go watch it. Drop whatever you're doing and watch it. I like how they kept the original girl, completely in love and deaf to the bad, pure and happy but so easily hurt. But the guy's character got changes. I don't think he is as cold in this one. When I watched this, I had only seen Playful Kiss, the Korean version, so I didn't know much about the characters. Also, the leads seemed to be a lot closer in this version. When focusing on Aom, you really can't help but love her. She is this role, like honestly, everything about her fits. Music: I don't even remember... Rewatch: Yes, I have. I love going back and rewatching episode or scenes, even youtube-ing them when I'm bored. I will rewatch it no doubt. Overall: I gave it a 10, because that is what I rated it, honestly. Looking at the scores, it should probably have an 8 or 8.5 but I watched it all in one sitting, unable to stop because I had to know what was going to happen. Also, I didn't even realize it was a Itazura na Kiss remake until the end when I came on to rate it.. though looking back, I should've known, haha. Looking back on the versions I've seen.... I would rate this one second best. The first being Miss in Kiss.
