Hana Kimi Season 2 confirmed!
This may not be NEWS for some, but IT IS for me. Dang, I’ve been out of the circle again! I’m always late when it comes to news like this. Enough with the mindless complaining and on with the real deal.
Where was I? Oh yeah, so we already knew that there’s a Korean remake (Beautiful You), right? But a Japanese remake? Now, that’s a shock. It has only been what? 4 years since the first Jdrama adaptation? Isn’t it too early? But anyways, it’s still good news! And to top it all, it’s our very own “Kyuuto”, Maeda Atsuko, who’ll play the lead. Yay!
Well, the plot is basically similar (since it’s understandably a remake) but with a totally different cast, episode themes, scenes, teenage humour and story.
I loved the first season, and I sincerely hope it’ll be the same for this one. I’ll be cheering for Maeda. Well, Horikita Maki sets the standards hight, but I’ll give Maeda a chance. Though I find her performance in Q10 a so-so, I’m confident she’ll pull this through.
Surely, a cluster of young and good-looking actors will once again grace our TV screens (or monitors). No announcements were made for the male casts. I’m eagerly waiting, but then I’m sure it’ll be pretty difficult for the producers, as the actors from the first drama were awesome-beyond-awesome! Personally, I’m content with the remake itself, so whoever they choose will be a-okay for me. 🙂
HanaKimi Season 2 will be airing on Sundays at 9pm this July. Oh shoot! There’s a lot of Jdramas to keep eye on this Summer: Ouran High School Host Club, Hallelujah, Keisatsu Gakkou Monogatari, Hanazakari Kimitachi e ~ Ikemen Paradise Season 2. Ah! There’s HanaKimi Korean version too! Busy-busy season for me.
Ahh! So what will I recap then? So many to choose from. 😦
