Japanese Drama: Ikemen Desu Ne

Well as of 2 days ago, I just found out there was a Japanese version of the Korean Drama, You're Beautiful. It is called Ikemen Desu Ne. I accidently clicked on it when I was watching the O.H.S.H.C Live action Drama. I read a little of summary of Ikemen Desu Ne and immediately freaked out. I was soooo curious and excited that I had to watch it.

You're Beautiful's Jeremy!! He is soo hot!! I love his hairstyle~!
I'm just going to be honest, the Japanese version of this drama will never top the original Korean version. I feel the guys are alot more hotter......(Jeremy, I love you!! You are sooo hot~!!!). Yuki (Japanese version of Jeremy) in Ikemen Desu Ne, kinda scares me. Yuki's personality is acted pretty close to Jeremy from You're Beautiful (Korean) but it can't replace him. I'm sorry Yuki!! I love Jeremy better!!! Gomenasai!!! > x <

He is so hot.......I can stare at him all day
The Japanese version is pretty good. I love how they changed some things to make it their own. Its like a whole new story but a little of the original story in know what I mean? I will praise them with the great actors and comedy. I enjoyed the Japanese version but I still love the original Korean version better.

The songs of course have been into a Japanese version. I'm quite impressed. They are just like the original!
