I am sure we all have sang this at one point of our life and I assume you loved. Assume? Who am I kidding? You all loved it!*chuckles*
So I went through whole of this playschool rhymes and shortlisted the grand champion “Dimples” to do my next post. I myself don’t have any dimples *sob sob* and have always been envious of others having cutie little dimples. I decided why not spread a “k-dimple fever”.

What does Manga and K drama have in common? Some out of the world humor and unimaginable scenes? Pretty characters with huge and beautiful eyes? Some funny incidents which is never possible in real life?
Mangas are basically similar to comic books. But major difference between the comics and mangas are that mangas are more intricate. They don’t look cartoony but seems complex. Comics seem fun but it is mostly just fluffy and simple. If you get bored you can easily pick em up and drop em off too. But mangas are different. Even if they go on and on people are addicted and read it with patience.
Doesn’t this remind us of K Dramas? How many of us have watched dramas into the wee hours of the morning. We keep trying to stop watching but end up seeing just one more episode until our alarm rings for waking up in the morning! heehee
Just imagine if you combine those two addictive drugs. What will you get?
Yep a Kdrama which is the ultimate addict machine!
Well that’s the theory anyway! But what really happens?
Korean entertainment industry tried using Mangas for making awesome Korean dramas and here are some of their results.
Mary Stayed Out All Night
This is a good example of how wrong a fusion of K drama and Manga can take place!
It was adapted from the manga/manhwa Maeri Neun Uibak Joong. Though it is an adaptation the writer of the drama basically did not follow the manga. Then why did they have to just use the characters from the drama?
MSOAN was packed with stellar cast in the form of Jang Keun Suk, Moon Geun Young and Kim Jae Wook. Yet it failed to create an impact due to misguided script. Too much confusion. They kept changing the writers and the plot was choppy. Only thing I loved here was the OST. But the scenes looked exactly like how you would feel if you read mangas while doing some other tasks too.
MSOAN could have been many things because JKS looked hot with his Indie bad role and Kim Jae Wook nailed that business man role. But due to some script problems it ended up as a bad drama. I think maybe the writers should have stuck to the manga to get a better drama.
Playful Kiss was based on the Japanese manga Itazura Na Kiss. A simple manga with some fun twists when a gal who is madly in love with popular guy follows him around. They live together and then eventually there is love and marriage. The story was told like a fairy tale and I felt the manga connection there.
Both leads Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min had awesome chemistry. Though Baek Seung Jo was a cold sneering character Kim Hyun Joong could have injected more warmth when he started to fall in love with Oh Ha Ni. But Jung So Min as a cute and irritable Oh Ha Ni was a perfect little package of love.
The only problem with Playful Kiss was it had some lull moments where the story was a bit dragging. But since they stuck to the manga maybe the pace was right! Playful Kiss FTW!
Boys Over Flowers
A success story of fusing K Drama and Manga is Boys Over Flowers. Not only was Hana Yori Dango manga was made into Korean drama but a Japanese drama and a Taiwanese drama was also created with the same. It was a immediate success cos the ladies loved F4. Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum and Kim Joon just swept the viewers off their feet. Ku Hye Sun as Jan Di was just a trifle overzealous. Her cuteness seemed forced at times but she did relatively well.
Japanese did justice to the manga by keepin the drama short and sweet. But K drama world overwhelmed by its success decided to extend the series which was a bummer. A nice round 20 episodes would have been ideal. BUT theykinda dragged it with 25 episodes with too many unnecessary action.
The best thing which was made a reality from manga to drama was F4 who will forever remain special in K drama addicts’ hearts.
So BOF did it just right! Fast paced, Awesome OST, Perfect Flower boys and high ratings. The future drama-manga fusions should learn it from BOF!! But a slight word of caution is Don’t over do it! Keep it short and attention capturing instead of long and boring or filled with chaos.

I would like to calls this guy the “Noble Chief”– “Noble” was his another name wasn’t it? He managed Jun Pyo and President Kang remaining honest to both of them. He was really “one of a kind”!!
The first thing that struck me was hiss manner of speech- composed, formal and smooth. He has managed to maintain his dialogs in a “single decibel” over the entire drama. The chief is obviously more classy and richer than Jan Di’s family but he speaks to them in the same manner he would talk to a “Country’s President”! Doesn’t laugh much but occasionally smiles( which is sort of nice).
When President Kang asks about Jan Di, He deliberately acts like he doesn’t know her. The same when she asks about the trip to Caledonia. He does not lie to her and keeps an innocent girl away from trouble. If we had told about Jan Di, the drama would have taken whole other turn.
He always looks out for Jun Pyo. Even when jun Pyo does unjust things like-breaking fire alarm or snatching a shoe from customer, he stands by him. He knew full well about attachment to Jan Di and helps him along the way. He keeps informed Jun Pyo about Jan Di and helps him get way for his date. When Jun Pyo is heartbroken when Jan Di leaves from Macau, he gives a shoulder for him to cry. Same with President Kang. When she broke down after Jun Pyo’s accident he consoles her.
The key part of the drama was when everyone comes to know that Jun Pyo’s dad is alive. So this makes him the “Key holder”. I think he always sees the best in people and loyal to the core.I would have felt much better if he was given more credit towards the end of the drama.
The character is played by Jung Ho Bin(and brilliantly so!). I am very disappointed that he does not have a wiki page yet! 😦
My character Rating- 5/5
