So everyone, guess what I just got wind of ..
Part of the casting for the Korean version of Hanazakari no Kimitachi e will be based on fan votes.
What can I say? .. A LOT
And let the complaining/rambling begin.
First of all, REALLY!?!?!? It’s bad enough that HanaKimi is getting a remake, this is just another way to put the series down. Netizens can vote for some of the characters .. truly utter crap to me. Not only are they not even bothering to cast properly, they are basically putting no real effort into actually trying to make this drama work. My hopes for keeping this drama IDOL-FREE is basically shot down now. I have taken a look at the prospective list of the leading cast. One word: horrendous. Most of them have no proper acting experience or training.
A friend had told me to not compare. Well I can’t help it! Especially with what’s going on. At this rate, they will ruin HanaKimi for me. I do not want to avoid watching this version altogether because I love the Japanese drama and the manga too much to not watch. Yes, I even gave the Taiwanese version a shot .. but, Ella looked too much like a guy and her facial expressions just screamed annoying/over-acting to me.
Why is SM doing this? I figure they’re trying to gain the success JYP had with Dream High. Although it may have had really decent ratings, there was nothing spectacular to me aside from a few good actors/actresses (yes, I’m talking about Eunjung) and a couple of poor/awkward actors/actresses (I’m not gonna bother to name them for I may be bricked by some overly obsessive fans. Don’t deny it; you know it was awkward too!). Everything else just seemed too trendy with no real substance. This is exactly what will/could happen to this drama. In all honesty, I’m just so disappointed that it all feels like they’re making a mockery of HanaKimi.
And most definitely, things will not change for the better. I can only hope but that will just be a waste of my efforts to even think that things can change for the better.
I’m going to try to make this post .. happier? Here they are .. MY LOVES:
Eat your heart out! xD
