Takimoto Miori and Johnnys idols to star in Japanese remake of “You’re Beautiful”

It was revealed today that the popular 2009 Korean drama “You’re Beautiful” will be remade in Japan! Set to start airing in July on TBS’s Friday 10pm slot, the remake will star actress Takimoto Miori, Kis-My-Ft2’s Tamamori Yuta, Fujigaya Taisuke, and Hey!Say!JUMP’s Yaotome Hikaru.

The Japanese remake has been in the works since last spring and the story will be based heavily on the original, with the female lead joining the band A.N.JELL while pretending to be her brother and ending up caught in a “love square” with the other three members.

Takimoto, who starred in last year’s NHK Morning Drama “Teppan“, will play the lead in a commercially broadcast drama series for the first time. In one scene in the remake, she will have to cut around 30cm of her long hair. Takimoto remarked, “If I’m going to play a boy anyway, I want to play a good looking guy, and want to be thought of as handsome by my own gender. I hope the guys from Johnny’s will tell me the secret to being seen as handsome and boyish.”

The male leads Tamamori, Fujigaya, and Yaotome are all starring in drama series for the first time.

Tamamori, who will play the role originally portrayed by actor Jang Geun-suk, commented, “In the original series, (Jang Geun Suk’s) facial expressions were vivid, so (I) want to properly do that part.

Fujigaya and Yaotome commented respectively, “We all want to follow our dream with all our strength so that (the drama) can become a representative work” and “I’m looking forward to the scene where all of us play music together.

According to a source, many of Japan’s top artists will be making cameos in the drama as themselves, and cameo offers have also been made to the cast of the Korean version. Jang sent the message, “I’m very happy that it is being remade. I am especially looking forward to what kind of character Tamamori-san will create for the role that I played.”

 The popular Korean drama series “You're Beautiful” is getting a remake in Japan, titled “Ikemen Desu ne.”

Other cast members include Katase Nana, Imori Miyuki, Yanagisawa Shingo, Takashima Masanobu, and Manda Hisako.

Kis-My-Ft2 originally intended to make their CD debut with Avex this month, but their plans were changed due to the Tohoku earthquake. It appears that they will now make their debut with a song that will be used in “Ikemen Desu ne.”

i can't, i just can't. the drama was filled with bad acting that ruined the story or what was left of it. i can't unsee the fail production.

the Korean version did not do well in the ratings despite it was a fangirl's favorite...hope this Japanese remake will fare better.

About the ratings, my K-freak friend told me that this drama had a low rating because of the airing time. This drama was aired in the same time with IRIS if I'm not mistaken. That's why the ratings was very low.

No. Just no.

And what is up with the re-makes this year? First Hana Kimi, now this. Run out of original plots Japan?
xanithofdragons 17th-May-2011 11:09 pm (UTC)
It's not like they haven't been making drama based off of manga and light novels for years. Original plots aren't that common in drama.

Rather have Tama as Jeremy, and Taipi as Hwang Tae.

Our boys will be doing their best, and I will support them no matter what.
I don't think people should be judging this drama, WHEN IT HASN'T EVEN BEEN RELEASED YET.

These are fresh new actors, could be tomorrow's biggest actors. tbh I am tired of seeing Miura Haruma and the like everywhere.

Yes!. I don't know much about them yet, but I support these boys. They are talented and need to start from somewhere, right? :) Everybody doubted Jun as Doumyouji and look at him now! But of course, we need to undertand the other side, too. I loved the Korean version and I'm afraid with a lot of things, but as you said, IT HASN'T EVEN BEEN RELEASED YET. :D

Good Luck for them!

actually its okay with me. i cant wait to see how they will remake this into a japanese version which has a diff style of a "korean drama" lol.

btw, Yaotome Hikaru will act as Jeremy?

I still have a Your Beautiful postcard that a friend sent me.

I couldn't finish the original but I would watch this for the cameos.
takchik 17th-May-2011 11:36 pm (UTC)
...i was just thinking the only way i would watch this is to see the cameos as well xD
