4 Mangas That Became Popular Live Action Drama

It's no surprise that manga is popular around the globe. In fact, many dramas get their inspiration from manga series. After talking to some vinglers yesterday I revisit a couple of old dramas I watched during high school and found out the original storyline was actually from popular mangas. There are anime versions of some of the series but this card will be mainly the live action adaption in different languages!

Hanazakari kimi ni tachie e (1996)

Japanese version: Hana Kimi (2007)
Taiwanese version: Hana Kimi (2006)
Korean version: To the Beautiful You (2012)

Boys Over Flower

Japanese Version: Hana Yori Dango (2005)
Taiwanese Version: Meteor Garden (2001)
Korean Version: Boys Over Flower (2009)

Itazura Na Kiss (1996)

Taiwanese Version: It Started with a Kiss (2005)
Korean Version: Mischievous Kiss (2010)
Japanese Version: Itazura Na kiss Live in Tokyo (2013)

Mars (1996-2000)

Taiwanese Version: (2004) - Starring Barbie Xu & Vic Zhou
Japanese Version: (2016) - Starring Taisuke Fujigaya, Masataka Kubota, Marie Iitoyo

Is this new to you? If not, which one did you watch?

I saw Hana Kim, Boys over flowers (Korean version), and itazura na kiss (Korean and Japanese version)
The first three I already knew, but I didn't know about Mars. Now I have something new to watch 😆😆
Haha I'm glad I'm not the the only one ^.^ @cindystran
@littlemaryk You're not alone. :D
Was anyone else singing "it started with out with a kiss, how did it end up like this. It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss" in their head when they read that title? Just me? Okay.

[Before K-Drama] Boys Over Flowers!
It's time for another "Before K-Drama" where we talk about what dramas were originally (webtoon, manga, book, etc) I'm pretty sure you all have heard of this little drama: Boys Over Flowers: It is based on Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango (花より男子) written by Yoko Kamio. There have been Japanese, Taiwanese, Indian, and, of course, a Korean remake! Most of them have had not only drama versions but also full length films! (It's called Meteor Garden in Taiwanese!) The Korean version, "Boys Over Flowers," is usually people's first K-drama and if you haven't seen it then you've definitely heard of it t least once! (Also, I don't know why Jan-di's legs are cut off in this photo hahaha) I actually watched Hana Yori Dango (the Japanese remake) completely by accident! My parents were trying to get me my first ever Korean DVD for Christmas and sort of failed ;P But it ended up being a good thing! They thought they got me Boys Over Flowers, but they got me the movie version of Hana Yori Dango! And it was sooo good! (Like, cheesy Japanese drama good, so...hahah) I haven't watched the drama yet though :D I haven't seen Meteor Garden (the Taiwanese version) either even though this was the first drama version of the manga! Which of these have you seen or read!? and if you havent seen any...

Extraordinary You (Korean Drama Recommendation)
Episodes: 32 (35 Minute Episodes) Genre: Friendship, Comedy, Romance, School, Fantasy Other Genre Tags (listed on MDL): High School, Student, Adapted from a Webtoon, Coming of Age, Unrequited Love, Love Triangle, Rich Female Lead, Multiple Mains (Characters), Youth Romance, Rainbow, Webtoon World, Idol Actor Rating: 15 + Where to Watch: Viki Status: Currently Airing - October 2nd-November 21st, 2019 Main Cast: Ro Woon, Kim Hye Yoon, Lee Jae Wook, Lee Na Eun, Kim Young Dae, Jung Gun Joo, Lee Tae Ri Notes/Warnings: -There is bullying going on but this is mainly a comedy, there are still some deep meaningful situations though. (I mean so far, there's only 4 episodes out so far...XD) Synopsis: What would you do if you found out that you were, in fact, a character in a comic? And an extra character on top of that? Change the course of the story, obviously! Eun Dan Oh is a 17-year-old high-school student from a wealthy family who suffers from a lifelong heart condition that inevitably means she will not live past her teenage years. However, when Dan Oh realizes she is experiencing longgaps in her memory as well, she comes into the unhappy inheritance of another fact in her life: she is a character in a Korean webtoon and all of her actions are predetermined by the artist who draws her. To make matters worse, she discovers she is only a supporting character in the cast. With her newfound understanding of the world she inhabits, she is determined to find true love in her own plot-line and circumvent the author’s plans for her character by utilizing the flashes of storyboard she alone is able to see. (Source: onehallyu, MDL) My Remarks: It's really good so far! If you liked the drama W you'd like this one most likely. They both have a similar concept. Except W had a serial killer in it...this one does not, or at least if it does it hasn't yet.

Jun Woo rejects Hui Yeong’s kindness as Hui Yeong’s popularity and influence intimidate him. When an incident breaks out, Jun Woo is falsely accused of stealing a watch. Everyone thinks Jun Woo is the culprit, and Hui Yeong useshis influence among his peers to fuel this rumor. Meanwhile, Soo Bin has been watching Jun Woo all this time. She sees a different side to Jun Woo than the one that other people see, as she notices his cute, goofy streak and innocent smile. Everyone knows that Hui Yeong has a crush on her, but it’s the quiet and attentive Jun Woo that Soo Bin finds herself gravitating towards. Soo Bin’s warmth opens up the softest part of Jun Woo’s heart, and he decides to break out of his shell. As the seasons change, will these youths also turn over a new leaf? "At Eighteen" captures the innocence of first love as these eighteen-year-old teens between immature and innocent. (Source: JTBC, MDL) My Remarks: I watched this because Moon Bin from Astro is in this! I saw a FMV about his character and had to check it out! It was really good! - Asian Drama/Movie Taglist: @KendraReeve @travelloveskin @MelissaGarza @KpopIsPleasing @LostMage @2ilVer @LinnyOk @rocklvr @VeronicaArtino @Just2BLoved @Kyla05 If you'd like to be tagged in any of my Asian drama/actor stuff please let me know!

K-Drama Kisses That Stole My Heart
So I wanted to do this game that was created by @kpopandkimchi because it looked fun!!! Here is my list of my favorite K-Drama kiss scenes!!! (Note: The pic above is from Fabulous Boys, the Taiwanese version of You're Beautiful.) 1. Playful Kiss (Korean Version) starring Jung So-min and Kim Hyun-joong The way he teases her about forgetting him is so cute. 2. Mischievous Kiss (Japanese Version) starring Honoka Miki and Yuki Kurukawa I love this one...... 3. Love Rain starring Jung Ha Na and Jang Keun-suk I fangirled so hard when I saw this scene. I must have replayed it at least a dozen times. 4. Coffee Prince starring Yoon Eun-hye and Gong Yoo Probably one of the sexiest kiss scenes I have seen yet..... 5. Bride Of The Century starring Yung Jin-sung and Lee Hung-gi One of the most sensual kiss scenes I have seen involving Hong-gi. 6. Princess Hours starring Yoon Eun-hye and Ju Ji-hoon Seeing two people coming to terms that they are absolutely in love with each other is enough to make anyone swoon. 7. Flower Boy Next Door starring Park Shin-hye and Yoon Shi-yoon I just love Park Shin-hye in this k-drama and this scene when he returns to her is so sweet. So there you have it. That is my list so far. It might change since I just started Orange Marmalade. Lol but tell me what ya think of these scenes?!?!

4 Taiwanese Dramas Remade into Korean
I was talking to @cindystran recently about how I've only seen one Taiwanese drama ever, but it looks like I'll have to dive into that world soon! Check out these 4 Taiwanese drama that have Korean counterparts! 1. Fated to Love You Taiwanese version: Starring Joe Chen and Ethan Juan. This Taiwanese drama came out in 2008, and it broke rating records. Korean version: Starring Jang Na Ra, Jang Hyuk and Choi Jin Hyuk. The series reunited Jang Hyuk and Jang Na Ra. Plot: Making a mistake after having way too many drinks can change everything. Lee Gun is the successor to a large company run by his family. Kim Mi Young is an average-looking secretary in a law firm who earned the nickname “Post-It” for her inability to say no to her colleagues who dump work on her. When the two cross paths one night after having too much to drink, they end up having a one-night stand. When Mi Young finds out afterwards that she is pregnant, what will become of them? 2. My Queen Taiwanese version: starring Ethan Juan and Cheryl Yang. And it was awarded the Best Channel Advertising at the 44th Golden Bell Awards. Korean version: named "Witch's Romance". starring Uhm Jung Hwa and Park Seo Joon. Plot: Two hard working people who have lost love in their lives meet and despite the age difference, they find a lot in common with each other, including their scarred hearts. 3. In Time With You Taiwanese version: Starring Ariel Lin, Chen Bolin and Sunny Wang. "Li Daren" probably will be the most ideal prince in every girl's dream. Korean version: The name of this Korean drama will is The Time We Were Not In Love with Ha Ji Won and Lee Jin Wook . Plot: Oh Ha-Na and Choi Won are both 34-years-old. They have been friends for 17 years. Oh Ha-Na is currently a career woman with an honest and confident personality. Choi Won works as an assistant purser for an airline. He has always helped Oh Ha-Na whenever she got into trouble. Will Oh Ha-Na and Choi Won find love? 4. Absolute Boyfriend Taiwanese version: Starring Jiro Wang and Gu Hye Sun. Consider how cute and pretty this couple is; you don't want to miss it. Its about an adorable girl who is consistently seeking for love but always has a lack of luck...so she has one custom made. Korean version: There have been rumors about Absolute Boyfriend being remade into a Korean drama for a really long time. There is a Japanese version though!!! Plot: Riiko Izawa has never had a boyfriend and she has been rejected by every boy she has ever had a crush on. When she returns a lost cell phone to an oddly dressed salesman, she mentions wanting a boyfriend. To thank her, he directs her to his company's website, Kronos Heaven. When she visits the site, Riiko finds it's a site to create your perfect lover. Thinking it's a game, she customizes and accidentally orders one. The next day, her new lover arrives.
