TW-Drama : Miss in Kiss 2016

miss-in-kissSo far as I know there’s only few dramas that keeps being recycled (remake) from time to time. Itazura Na Kiss is one from few which keeps being recycled. My first time watched Itazura Na Kiss was Taiwan version which played by Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin. The second remake was the Korean version played by Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min which far from my expectation. The third was the Japanese played by Yuki Furukawa and Honoka Miki. Although Thailand and Indonesia also did the remake but I just watched three remakes so far.

At the beginning, I didn’t have high expectation for Miss in Kiss as additional the cast are quite young and less experienced actors and actresses.  The best version still played by Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin followed by Yuki Furukawa. The drama still airing and so far it only aired five episodes.

Dino Lee played as Irie Naoki.
This young actor isn’t bad as Jiang Zhi Shu.

My spotlight is the actress who played Kotoko, Esther Wu (Xiang Yue Qin). If the Japanese version, Kotoko looked super dummy, Jung So Min looked smarter but for me Esther Wu seems alike the upgrade version of Xiang Qin character played by Ariel Lin. Little bit dummy, cute, adorable and not annoying.

  1. I’ve been watching this version as well – it’s very sweet and I love Dino Lee’s expressions (when they let his character make them!) Esther Wu is also good in her sweet-but-simple good girl role. Of all of them, I really recommend the Thai version, Kiss Me. The two leads have excellent chemistry and the reason behind the lead’s cold behavior is explained much better. I’m not sure any of the other versions even get into that.

  2. One of my fav drama in many different versions too…. I totally agree that the best is still the original It Started with A Kiss by Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng. And this is followed by the new version starring Yuki Furukawa and Honoka Miki. As for this version, I have watch on an off and kinda like it. Can’t wait for it to complete before I start watching it from the beginning.
