It was announced earlier this week that a Japanese remake of the K-drama “You’re Beautiful” will be released this July 2011. JE fangirls have been going wild with the news that the three ANJell members will be played by their beloved Johnny boys. Tamamori Yuta will be playing Hwang Tae Kyung, Fujigaya Taisuke will play Kang Shin Woo and Yaotome Hikaru will take Jeremy’s role (I’m not sure what their Japanese names will be though). The lead female role will be played by Takimoto Miori.
I’m pretty excited about the remake, but it’s making me a bit nervous as well. This whole thing seems too familiar. I remember how excited I was last year about the news that a Korean version of ISWAK was being made and that Kim Hyun Joong would take the male lead. I waited for the show for months, but I just ended up being disappointed because the remake wasn’t as good as the Taiwanese version (in my opinion at least). It was too bad because I really wanted it like it since I’m a big KHJ fangirl. Anyway, “You’re Beautiful” is another one of my all-time favorite dramas, so I’m worried that the I wouldn’t enjoy the Japanese remake as much as I did the original. But I sincerely hope that my predictions will be wrong and that the show will be a success, especially since I want the JE boys to do well.
There have been rumors that cameo offers have been made to the original Korean cast. I really hope that they’re true 🙂
