My Favourite drama 'You're Beautiful' will get had japanese version which will airing in this july with the title "Ikemen desu Ka?'
Yaotome Hikaru will be in a new TV drama. He will star alongside Kis-My-Ft.2‘s Tamamori Yuta and Fujigaya Taisuke and the female lead Takimoto Miori in this korean remake.
The story it revolves around Takimoto who joins the popular boyband A.N.Jell posing as her own twin brother and getting caught up in a “love square” with the other three members (Tamamori, Fujigaya, Yaotome).
The Korean drama aired in 2009 and achieved a somewhat mediocre audience share of 10.1%, which might be because it was up against strong competition or simply because it the actor/actress.
Ikemen desu ne will air from July through September 2011, Fridays at 10pm onTBS.The official website is here, and there’s also an official Twitter account here.
There’s one very interesting tidbit of information about the Korean original, and that’s the fact that because the drama features concert footage in it, A.N.JELL actually performed a mini-concert in front of some 25,000 people. I wonder if something similar is planned for the Japanese version of the drama. Also, I think it would be a great idea to have A.N.Jell actually release a soundtrack CD and go on Music Station and all that, kinda like Lands did for that Bandage movie. However, that’s probably not going to happen as it’s been reported that Kis-My-Ft.2‘s debut song will be featured in the drama, so instead of A.N.Jell it’ll be KMF2 who will release a CD and do all the promotion.
Another updated about "Ikemen Desu Ka"
Twenty-three-year-old Kojima Haruna of the all-female theater and idol group AKB48 was recently cast in the Japanese remake of the popular Korean drama "You Are Beautiful." Kojima is set to take on the role of NANA, a two-faced idol-actress. The outwardly kind but mean-spirited character was named Yoo He Yi in the original version and was played by After School’s UEE.
Kojima joins other previously announced cast members Takimoto Miori, Kis-My-Ft2’s Tamamori Yuta, Fujigaya Taisuke, and Hey!Say!JUMP’s Yaotome Hikaru in the adaptation to be called “Ikemen Desu ka.” “Ikemen Desu ka” will closely follow the story of “You Are Beautiful,” where a female singer masquerades as a young man to join an all-male idol group. The success of the drama spawned widespread popularity for its main cast members, Jang Geun Suk, Park Shin Hye, Jung Yong Hwa (CN Blue) and Lee Hong Ki (FT Island.)
“Ikemen Desu ka” is set to air over TBS, every Friday night at 10 PM in July 2011.
