Drama: Fabulous Boys Review and Ravings

Ni Hao! ^_^ Oh well, back to drama mode.

Fabulous Boys is Taiwan's version or remake of my ever beloved Korean Drama, You're Beautiful. It stars Jiro Wang, Cheng Yu Xi, Hwang In Deok and Evan Yo as A.N.Jell Taiwan.
I'm feeling young much, and in love! I think it's relatively fine to adore Jiro Wang, since I'm not too noona-ish for him ;-D Hah! ^_^ You ought to know I'm mighty in love with You're Beautiful and its lead Hallyu Star, Jang Keun Suk (trivia: my Noona Diaries site is born because of him! ^_^). So imagine my happiness that its Taiwan remake stars my new crush, Jiro Wang. I'm speechless. Let it be known, that Jiro Wang is it! I love him in Absolute Boyfriend with Geum Jan Di, oh I meant Gu Hye Sun. Shhhh...lucky girl, he gets Lee Min Ho and now Jiro Wang! Anyhow, back to Fabulous Boys, if you haven't seen You're Beautiful, hello!!! you're missing a lot of drama good times.

Gao Mei Nu or Gemma
Similar to You're Beautiful, the plot is the story of Gao Mei Nu (Cheng Yu Xi), and the A.N.JELL.

She is a sister-in-training. Her twin brother, Gao Mei Nan (Cheng Yu Xi) successfully auditions for the musical band A.N.JELL but is forced to leave for the United States due to a plastic surgery mishaps on his eyes. Mei Nu is approached by Mei Nan's manager (Mark) to pose as her brother, while her brother recovers. She is against it at first but agrees in order to fulfill her dream of finding their mother. Now, posing as Mei Nan , she enters the group A.N.JELL and meets its members: Group leader, Huang Tai Jing (Jiro Wang), Jiang Xin Yu (Hwang In Deok), and Jeremy (Evan Yo).

Taiwan's Fabulous Boys...the beginning!
I love Jang Geun Suk, for the record, but I find Jiro Wang as Huang Tai Jing a more and better dashing Darcy. If you love Park Shin Hye as Mi Nam (and yay! she did a cameo on Fabulous Boys), Cheng Yu Xi is similarly suited for the role. I haven't seen her, if I had seen her in other Taiwanese Drama, I don't really remember, but she plays a pretty funny, and warm, and loving lead actress.  Taiwan's Jeremy is funny and well acted, same as Lee Hongki. But I have to say that I love Jung Yong-hwa as Shin Woo more. As for the rest of the cast, the Taiwanese actors and actress are known to deliver. Hmmm, come to think of it, I find Mark more endearing. Also, I like Taiwan's Mu Hua Lan (mom of Huang Tai Jing) better too. I find the Korean scenes with Mu Hua Lan dragging, while Fabulous Boys Mu Hua Lan's back story more welcoming.

Oh love. 
As for the chemistry and intricacies of relationships and feelings (romantic, friendship, love-hate, etc.) among the leads and everyone else, you get that a lot too in Fabulous Boys. Plus you get a pretty and functional treat by having great supporting casts as well, even the A.N.JELL's fan girls are fun to watch (haha, can relate much!). So yes, Jiro Wang is the absolute, perfect Huang Tai Jing. You also get the feel good A.N.JELL songs that I went crazily in love. Overall, Fabulous Boys is such a delight to obsess watch! Now waiting for the remaining episodes. Fabulous Boys Fighting! ^_^

I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
