To The Beautiful You - Soon on ABS-CBN Philippines

To The Beautiful You poster credits.
I just recently saw the trailer of To The Beautiful You (Hangul: 아름다운 그대에게 RR: Areumdawoon Geudaeege) earlier today in ABS-CBN channel 2 here in the Philippines. After I saw it, I can't help but feel excited for it. I have a feeling that this K-drama will become another big hit in Philippines. Well, what can I say, Philippines has the widest K-pop fan base in Asia.

It is based on the Japanese shōjo manga series, Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (花ざかりの君たちへ For You in Full Blossom), written by Hisaya Nakajo. The Korean series is the fourth television adaptation of the manga following the Taiwanese Hanazakarino Kimitachihe in 2006, the Japanese Hanazakari no Kimitachi e in 2007 and its remake Hanazakari no Kimitachi e 2011.



To The Beautiful You main cast:

source; Wikipedia

  • f(x)'s Sulli Choi as Gu Jae Hee (JC Gu) - Born in the USA, she was amazed when she saw Kang Tae-joon in a high jump competition. Determined to see him, she masqueraded as a male student to transfer to all-boy Genie High School. (Sulli, known for her feminine look and long hair, cut 60 cm of her hair for the role in the drama.)
  • Shinee's Choi Minho as Kang Tae Joon (Paul John Kang) - He is a high jump athlete who holds the best record in the World Junior Championship. He receives love from fangirls for his outstanding looks that match his national representative rank. He is dull and only says what he wants to, and he does not show much interest for the fangirls that follow him. After he injured himself and knew he'd still be disabled even if he recovered, he announced he wouldn't high jump any more. He later regains his lost laughter after meeting his new roommate, Jae-hee, who he eventually falls in love with.
  • Lee Hyun Woo as Cha Eun Gyeol - He is a charming soccer player who likes to joke and very active. He is the mood creator wherever he goes. Even though he has many people around him because of his outstanding skill and looks, he has never been in love. He initially was sure that he likes a girl, but when he realizes that he likes Jae-hee, he gets completely confused and begins to doubt his sexuality. He was also angry and upset when he finds out that Jae Hee was lying to him (that she was a boy).
  • Kim Ji Won as Seol Han Na - She is a gymnast and daughter from a rich family without any shortcomings. She and Tae-joon were childhood friends. Although she possesses a reckless personality, in front of Tae-joon she becomes a gentle lady.
I just really hope that I can't find any DVD or a free full episode in the internet of To The Beautiful You before it airs in ABS-CBN.

I wish I could watch Korean telenovela once again. I bet, this one would be exciting to watch as well.

I used to be a Korean-novela fan but I don't have the luxury of time to keep track of each episodes so I content myself watching the replays over the internet which sucks coz I get hooked each time. LOL!
