You're Beautiful



You're Beautiful (or You're Handsome) 16 episodes

Go Mi Nyu pretends to be her twin brother and fills his spot as the newest addition of all-boy idol, A.N. Jell. The drama is not the first to mix in gender bender + showbiz type there's Idol Paradise and Cinderella Boy mangas. For the gender bender + twins set-up there's 'Secret Girl'. And of course it's predecessors in reverse harem live action are the two Hana Kimi's and Coffee Prince. But even with the tried and tested cliches the drama was able to create a refreshing take. It's not heavy on the drama per se and delivers funny scenes and original twists. I love the noodle mix dance and MTV in the fields with the boar.

The actors gave justice to their roles as idols with their looks, character acting as well as musical prowess. Lee Hong Ki and Jung Yong Hwa are real-life members of idol groups. I was betting at first for Go Min Nam - Shin Woo but you can't deny the acting charms and the chemistry between Park Shin Hye and Hwang Tae Kyung. PSH joins the ranks of Go Eun Chan and Horikita Maki in my top three favorite heroine in a hero role. I can't decide if she's pretty as a guy or handsome as a girl but I like her unpretentious acting style.

Even though it's about music, I'm not such a fan of the soundtrack. The supporting cast are great too and I like the fact that they don't have super-evil character. I haven't been this excited with a drama since Boys Before Flowers ended. I really hope it's true that there will be a second season!


The Noodle Mix!

  1. This show was so great, though the last episode confused me a bit. I especially love the fanfic scene! I've watched it a hundred times! So hilarous!
