Takimoto Miori as Sakuraba Mio (Male) / Sakuraba Miko (Female) [Min Nam]
Tamamori Yuta as Katsuragi Ren [Tae Kyung]
Fujigaya Taisuke as Fujishiro Shu [Shin Woo]
Yaotome Hikaru as Hongo Yuki [Jeremy]
All 3 member of A.N.Jell don’t look as charming as their Korean counterparts.
Shu is the worst. Sigh.
But they each still capture the original member’s vibe.
Ren is as arrogant as irritating (though not as much) as Tae Kyung.
Shu is still looking after Mio, soft spoken and pats her head (like a poor puppy rmb?) And the towel guy. (Bathroom scene after dance practice.)
Yuki is as cute and fun and happy as Jeremy. Oh! The part he shudders thinking how Mio’s skin is so smooth unlike a guy is the same feel! ((:
But they are A.N.JELL without the Angel feel. Saddddddddd.
Can’t help but think that their plot moves way too fast.
Within 1st episode of 1 hr 50 mins,
Mio destroyed Ren’s room (the bookshelf and his composed songs),
Ren moved out to a hotel, saw his mother,
The bathroom scene after dance practice. (The manager never even stand guard outside!),
Their debut photoshoot,
Ren knowing Mio secret because of the webcam incident.
And an additional part of them involved in some orphanage charity concert(?).
Which shows off Mio being rash and determined, going all out for anything.
But a scene of Ren going to the orphanage to help out when Mio fainted coz of fatigue therefore unable to fulfill the promise of helping out there everyday is suspicious.
I mean, there wasn’t a lot scene on how a nuisances Mio is to Ren.
And there wasn’t any reason why would Ren soften towards her.
It’s weird since most of the time Mio is doing things at the orphanage on her own.
It doesn’t shows off how much Ren should hates her and want her out of his life and his band.
Oh yes, not to mention how much the songs are similar.
They are the same melody just changed to Japanese words.
Which makes me can’t help humming the original one.
Aww, how I missed cute HongKi singing Promise (yaksok).
And ShinHye version of Without Words (maldo eobshi)
