The Hong sisters had done it again! This time, a refreshing idol romance drama about a girl impersonating as her twin brother to secure a place in the fictitious top idol band A.N.Jell (angel).
Name: He's beautiful/You're Beautiful
Director: Hong Seoung Chang
Writers: Hong Jeong eun, Hong Mi-ran
Number of episodes: 16
Cast: Jang Geuk Suk, Park Shin Hye, Jeong Yong-Hwa, Lee Hong Ki, UEE
-Recommended show to die-hard romantics who love shows like My Girl, Princess Hours, Full House and Boys Over Flowers
Jang Geuk Suk will act as a gifted composer and pianist Hwang Tae Kweong. He is a vain, hypochondriac control freak who has several allergies, night blindness and insomnia. He soon discovers Mi-nyeo's secret and intends to kick her out. But upon knowing her quest to become famous in order search for her mother, he softens and in time, helps her in many situations, even to the point of dating Yu Hee-Yi who threatens to announce the secret. Through Mi-nyeo, he changed into someone who laughed more often and cares about others' plight more.
In my opinion, this is his best role so far and he got the girl this time.
Park Shin Hye acts as a pair of twin brother Ko Mi-nam (pretty boy) and sister Ko Mi-nyeo (pretty woman). Mi-nam who is seriously injured is hospitalized in America. To secure his hard-earned position in the boy band A.N.Jell, nun-to-be Mi-nyeo takes his place till his return. Mi nyeo is very careless and tends to end up in the most ridiculous of situations. Her misgivings gets on the nerves of Hwang Tar Kyeong at first, but her kind heart and innocence makes others want to protect her. She will develop romantic feelings for Jang Geuk Suk's character Hwang Tae-Kyeong.
Jeong Yong-Hwa will act as the second lead (Kang Shin-woo) who will never get the girl, but earn lots of support for his gentleness and good looks. He discovers Mi-nyeo's secret early but keeps to himself. He's always there to help her despite her not knowing. His efforts to confess are often thwarted by Hwang Tae Kyeong's unknowing interventions.
FT Island's Lee Hong Ki acts as the comic relief Jeremi. He's always there to brighten up the scene for anyone. He dislikes Mi-nyeo at first, but grows to like 'him' and eventually falls for her. But, he too will not get the girl. Very little character development for Lee Hong Ki, but he carries the role well and everyone would like this character.
UEE is the two-faced superficial Yu Hee-Yi who develops feelings for Hwang Tae Kyeong. She uses the secret to push Tae Kyeong into a relationship she hopes will become real someday. But the righteous Tae Kyeong could not fall for such a superficial personality throughout and Hee Yi is heartbroken as she never has the courage to tell Tae Kyeong she truly likes him.

Just visiting the thread at crunchyroll again. Some fans had posted these really cool pics. Not mentioning their names here, but thanks for posting them up. Now importing
Pictures of no.1 boy band A.N.Jell in the show:
My favoutrite guy in the show! A control freak and perfectionist.
Thanks tanteun. Just notify the moderator about it.
I actually read JonDoe's review long long time ago, but did not take note of the show since it wasn't highly recommended. Now, I realized it's the same show, and felt relieved that I have watched it somehow coz it's really a bright and unique.
I luvss Hyungnim !!
Yay, go TK! Luvs his pouting and his stuck-up gesture.
What is ironic is that just straight after i finished the show, CN Blue came to my country Singapore last week, and I just found out that Yong Hwa was part of CN Blue which is quite a pleasant coincidence.
It seemed CN Blue has lots of guy fans as well. Explains a lot about their music. They're also very professional in their interaction with the fans, like all other Korean celebrities.
THANK YOU PEMBERLY for merging the thread!!
i'm planning to rewatch this again since i haven't finished watching my DVD un-cut version, but still couldnt find a right time , because i need to concentrate to watch this
I'm rewatching this and My Name Is Kim Sam Soon, and it's still enjoyable.
I remember the first time watching this and finding Go Mi Nyu (as Go Mi Nam) a bit annoying because she's so clueless after a while. But the 2nd time around, I find her clumsy, but not dislikeable. I can see why the guys like her.
I just love how you Captivate My Mind
Self reminder - Update blog more often and continue editing/writing for TOV fanfic.
Maybe I'm nitpicking, but I find 'Go Mi Nam's singing not that great. They should at least dubb her singing to show she's selected by TK because 'he' is an incredible singer.
I actually really really like this series! I was blown away at how emotional this series can be sometimes. I wasn't much of a Korean dramas person at the time when I watched this too. (Now I am though) I scored pretty bad on tests and quizs because of this series actually. lol
