K-drama: You're Beautiful.

Recently I just watched You're Beautiful ( Mi Nam Isi-Nae-Yo -미남이시네요)... and it's absolutely addictive!! I keep listening to the OST on my laptop..

There have been many cross-dresser dramas in the past, but this one really takes the cake for 2009!

The Storyline...

It is a story of a girl, Go Mi Nyu who impersonates the place of her twin brother, Go Mi Nam, in joining a fictional idol band, A.N.Jell. The brother was unable to return in time to make his debut due to a botched eye surgery.

Mi Nyu having grown up in a convent, and intending to be a nun, initially has her polite and quirky ways difficult to get along with the band's prickly team leader, Tae Gyung. She also has to keep secret her identity as a girl until her brother returns, but that seems harder than she thought....

However with one incident after another, as Mi Nyu displays her kindness and concern, it soon breaks down Tae Gyung's prickly ways, as they both get to know each other..

Other cast members include band idol Lee Hong Ki (from the band F.T Island) as Jeremy, and Lee Yong Hwa (from C.N. Blue). 

Why I recommend this drama?
Solid acting and performance from all the actors. A balance of humour, romance, and good story line. Not to mention good chemistry between the entire cast! Also do remember to keep the tissue box handy!

Don't forget about the soundtrack, as the songs performed by the band A.N.Jell are listen worthy, and absolute pure enjoyment and worth its gold in time.

Why I especially like is that in real life, the actors are the total opposite of the characters they portray, which makes the performance in drama much more solid and view worthy. The performance will have you in tears (literally!) that I have to keep the tissue box in hand many times....
