Playful Kiss, Mischievous Kiss, Naughty Kiss...

After a banging hit of Taiwanese adaptation of Japanese Manga "Itazaru Na Kiss", here's another version from Korea..."Playful Kiss" or also know as Mischievous Kiss and Naughty Kiss. This is actually the third version...starting from Japan, Taiwan then Korea. How about a Filipino version? Hahaha... :D

Since knowing that Korea will having their version of It Started It With A Kiss, I've been anticipating the drama. Knowing how good looking Korean celebs are, I got excited who will play the role of Yuan Xiang Chin and Jiang Zi Shu. Then the day comes when I got the chance to watch the first episode...Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So MIn will play the role of Baek Seung Jo (Jiang Zi Shu) and Oh Ha Ni (Yuan Xiang Chin).

My reaction? It was the first time I saw Jung So Min and I was surprised that she has a resemblance with Yoon Eun Hye. Anyway, she's cute and I liked her potrayal of the role though sometimes I want more deeper reactions from her in other scenes. As to Kim Hyun Joong, well...he's sure looks attractive but he lacks in facial expression. I can't say when he's serious, angry, happy or what. I'm saying this because I've seen the Taiwanese version and I loved how Joe Cheng played the lead role. Maybe I've expected that whoever will play the lead role in this Korean version would surpassed Joe Cheng's acting. There are numerous scenes that should have a deeper emotions but I just got disappointed when I couldn't feel anything. Well, I guess they may have one story but still they'll have different versions of it.

What I liked in this version is that Oh Ha Ni is really not that stupid to look at and she dressed fashionably. She doesn't even looks ugly, she's very cute. Her friends also is not dumb, they have their own expertise but not in academics. Bong Joon Gu is also cute when he changed his hairstyle in one of the episodes. He even acts better than Baek Seung Jo when he was in pain when Oh Ha Ni and Baek Seung Jo decided to got married. He's so pityful. Poor Bong Joon Gu... :(
