Aigooo~ I'm loving Jonghyun with one of the fics up in SHINee.net forum. I'm also thinking of having an Iple account. XDDDD Oh FYI, I still have Key as my SHINee, ichiban. XDDD
Speaking of Korean entertainment, there’s this thread on a SHINee forum on asking, which version of HYD is better: Taiwanese, Japanese or Korean. As to be expected, a lot voted for the Korean version but a good number also voted for the Japanese one. Meh, of course I voted for the Japanese one.
Maybe people can say that I voted for the Japanese version because I’m biased as MatsuJun was there. Well maybe they are partially right. Nevertheless, that’s not the sole or major reason of picking HYD over BOF/BBF.
Observing the people’s answers on that thread, most people who voted on the Japanese ver are those who had really watched all of the 3 vers or at some, even read the manga. Personally, I read the manga and comparing to the J-drama, the drama was very similar to the manga. Watching HYD, I felt that the manga characters were really brought to life especially Makino. I have to say that I’m really impressed on the 1st season of HYD because in a matter of 9 episodes, they really showed the essential parts of the story and it didn’t go as dragging compared to what I’ve experienced on Meteor Garden.
Another point is that I’ve said is that the Japanese actors were better at portraying their respective roles. Not to degrade BBF but Jandi really fell behind my expectations as the “weed” of the elite school where she was in. There’s this one person said that there are more JandixJiHoo (MakinoxRui) moments than JandixJunPyo (MakinoxTsukasa). I agree with that at some point and that’s where the chemistry of the 2 main characters comes in. For HYD, Mao Inoue and Jun Matsumoto had really this strong chemistry within them and every time I watch their “hardship” scenes, I always feel that desire for them that everything will pass and they will get together again. As for the JunPyoxJandi, I didn’t feel it that much which I find really sad because BBF really has to revolve around the story of these 2 teen-agers. The only thing I’m disappointed in HYD is that the SoujirouxYuki love story wasn’t really developed that much. Why oh why. D: D:
Nevertheless, BBF had better-looking actors as F4. No offense, but I don’t like Tsuyoshi Abe the first time I saw him (but I like him now. XDDD) Also, the Korean version is not that bad considering it entertained me and I flailed a lot of times on Yi Jeong (he’s hot).
Didn’t you notice that I never touched the OST part? Well, I don’t want to comment on that as both Arashi and SHINee both contributed on their respective HYD versions (but Arashi’s part is bigger as theirs were the opening songs whereas to SHINee’s – theirs was only the insert song).
OMO OMO, I ranted too much over HYD and BBF.Now can we just go to the penguin?!( JANNNNGGGGG~! )
