To the Beautiful You just released its first energetic teaser and to my non-surprise, I like it! I have this weird relationship with dramas adapted from mangas, don’t ask. Even the hot mess Boys Before Flowers kept me riveted during its live airing, and I adored Playful Kiss for its slow burn not much happens mellowness. Beautiful You is the K-version of Hana Kimi, which Japan has made twice in five years, so that goes to show now much folks seem to love this girl-cross-dresses-lives-in-boys-dorm story. Starring Sulli, Min Ho, Lee Hyun Woo, and a bevy of male idols from SM Entertainment‘s stable of talent, I’m curious to see what comes out of this version. Will Lee Hyun Woo steal the show as Nakatsu as all previous actors playing that role have? Probably? Will Min Ho pull off Sano? Why not, he’s got the height and looks. Is Sulli convincing as a girl-playing-a-boy? If Maki can do it, Sulli can do it. Check out the first teaser and decide for yourself.
The white fluffy dog has indeed already won my heart in its split second back-of-the-head-only appearance in the teaser. Cheeky thing, that hound.
