Like it or not, the next adaptation of shoujo manga story Itazura na Kiss (It Started with a Kiss) is coming soon like a train that doesn’t even realize it’s making the umpteenth round into the same station. Will viewers board this version? Some will and likely enough to make it worthwhile to keep churning this out with new and younger leads. The new version has the same Chinese title of 惡作劇之吻 but English will be called It’s a Kiss, and stars Dino Lee and Esther Wu as the brainy gorgeous Jiang Zhi Shu and his dimwitted and determined stalker classmate Xiang Yue Qin. The drama has been filming for two months now and recently released stills of the famous first kiss scene that spread the Kabedon move around the world beyond the pages of being a shouja manga staple. I can’t say this version portrays it as good or even better than previous ones since it’s being shown without context and all the necessary character interaction buildup, but on visuals alone I’m warming up to both Dino and Esther.
