Expectations Continue to Rise With Latest Teaser For “To The Beautiful You”

Aw man, this drama is making its way up on my “must watch” list for August. The second teaser for To the Beautiful You shows us a bit more of the characters and I’m happy to report that the drama seems to be heading for the fun.

Sulli: I saw his flying.
Sulli: To be next to him, I became a boy.

Sulli: I have liked a boy.
Minho: That kind of one-sided affection is called stalking.
Minho: It doesn’t matter even if I can’t jump.
Lee Hyun Woo: Man to man, if we see each other naked while taking a shower…
Kim Ji Won: You keep bugging me…
Lee Hyun Woo: If that was Tae Joon’s lips and this is your lips…

Sulli is looking convincing as the Goo Jae Hee, the bright and determined crossing-dressing girl. It looks like there will be a lot Minho, as the high-jump champion Kang Tae Joo who is afraid to jump after an accident, looking pretty while angsting. Unfortunately, there is too little of Lee Hyun Woo in this trailer, who plays the soccer player, Cha Eun Gyeol.

The teaser is using plenty of the word bubble comic effects, which might be preparing us for the over-the-top tone of the drama, but I’m also getting a really a good feeling about the high energy and tension that I love in dramas about youth and coming-of-age.

After Queen In-Hyun’s Man, my drama pool has been sort of dry, but here’s to hoping that August will fill that pool with cracktastic, well-made, and narratively interesting stories. To the Beautiful You premiers Wednesday, August 15.

  3. We need LOTS of Lee Hyun Woo! I hope he gets to monolog a lot.
    He is so pretty HE could have played Goo Jae Hee.

    Looks like the fans are corayzee already. Lots of bickering on who should have been cast, and wasn’t.
    Whether the lead girl “sucks” or not. How she doesn’t look like a boy. Which version is better, who watched which version first. Who’s sitting next to someone at lunch. Yep, pretty much sounds like junior high schoolers.

    Meanwhile, I am being sucked into the vortex of this drama…Blow the whistle – I am officially aboard.

      I’m just hoping that this drama is on par or better than the Japanese one. I want a lot of youth and a lot of fun.

    I wasn’t initally going to even try this one out but then I saw that Suh Joon Young was also in it. I have such a soft spot for that boy. ;P Guess I’ll give it a try for him and the other cutie Lee Hyun Woo.

    I’m beginning to think the bowl cut was an attempt to make Lee Hyun Woo a notch less cute, but it’s not working very well.

    Lee Hyun Woo’s Nakatsu here kinda reminds me of Lee Hong Ki’s Jeremy, heh~
    Then again, Jeremy always reminded me of Nakatsu…

    Anyone else thinks a girl posing as a boy to be next to her favorite high jumper idol/athlete reminds you of ridiculous sasaeng fans? Mizuki here better have a pretty darn good reason for this… In the Japanese version, at least part of it was motivated by guilt and responsibility (er….not the most responsible way to go about it though).

      I think they are going with the same storyline of having Sulli transfer to that school because she wants to be help Minho get over his injury, caused by her.
