If you have been following the Taiwanese drama, you will definitely heard of popular Taiwanese drama, “花樣少男少女” (HanaKimi), starring Ella, Wu Zun, Jiro Wang that was aired not so long ago.
Well, it seems the popularity of that drama has reached the ears of the powers that be in Fuji TV. According to this article in TW Yahoo, Fuji TV has decided to release a Japanese version! The lead actress role will be played by “Nobuta” aka Horikita Maki. Fuji TV has previously released the Japanese version of “Hana Yori Dango”. It is reported that Horikita Maki will have a short hair cut for this role.
Well, I did a search on this upcoming drama and it will be a summer drama (Japanese drama world is usually divided by seasons). The lead actor (Izumi) will be played by Oguri Shun! And guess what? Ikuta Toma (aka Yamapi’s wife) will be Shuichi!!! Gosh, I’m really looking forward to this drama.
But I do hope the Japanese version will have better plot than the Taiwanese version. The TW version is just too silly, even though it was in an enjoying way – except the ending episode (don’t get me started on that ep). Since Fuji TV did very well for HYD 1 & 2 (to me, it is miles better than the TW versions), I have good faith that they will not disappoint in their version of Hana Kimi.
