It seems to be a day for the local airing of new K-Dramas. While GMA7 begins the local broadcast of East Of Eden tonight as I mentioned HERE, ABS-CBN also started the local airing of He’s Beautiful earlier at 5:30 to 6:00pm.
He’s Beautiful (the international title of the idol-drama You’re Beautiful) stars Jang Geun-Seuk, Park Shin-Hye, Lee Hong-Ki, and Jung Yong-Hwa as members of the all-male musical band A.N.JELL. But the twist is that Park Shin-Hye is actually a girl pretending to be a guy to replace his twin brother who should have been the original member of the band.
Anticipation for this drama has been quite high. Fans have been talking about its local airing all over the web even before ABS-CBN formally acquired the rights to the K-Drama. In fact, the Korean OST for He’s Beautiful was released as early as April of this year – which is practically 4 months before the official broadcast of the K-Drama locally.
My predictions – this is definitely going to be a hit! That is, unless local fans get turned off by Jang Geun-Seuk’s crazy “band fashion” which happens to extend to his real style sense as well.
Thanks to ABS-CBN for the photo.
