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

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... Tagging my "Before K-Drama" folks! @merryjayne13 @Yongsongmi @Kamiamon @CreeTheOtaku @chongx @RaquelArredondo @KellyOConnor @Msrayray95 @drummergirl691 @netchtiBates @Lizzeh @PamelaPenaloza @Priscilla @biancadanica98 @petname83 @JamiMilsap @juniholtgrewe @sosoaloraine23 @sherrysahar @KiraHitomi @TLeahEdwards @shananunezl1234 @IMNII @SarahIvester
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?!?! I ♡ ya my K-Drama/K-Pop family!!!! @majesticx @punkpandabear @Hollyrose19 @VixenViVi @aliciasalinas @CaibraeElane @amandamuska @AimeeH @edway66 @TheKS3D @jimjammin @kpopandkimchi @B1A4BTS5ever @ReddViolet @bts486 @ninachan @KatieRussell @KpopGaby @Foxxjinxx @SaraHanna @MissCandyFreak @Marilovexoxo @SHINee808 @Exoexo @IlseJimenez @luotl88 @lilybaby @BluBear07 @B2STANG88 @AngelJoong86 @Emealia (Tag me if you've done yours!!!
