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.|
|Gao Mei Nu or Gemma|
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.
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! ^_^
