Hi everyone! I have great news to all fans of Hanakimi. Yes! It has been confirmed that there will a Japanese version live drama of Hanakimi. It will star airing this summer and the episodes will be subbed by B.O.N. Funsubs . I have already seen the Taiwanese version but I still can’t wait to watch this version of the manga, specially Junpei from Hana Yori Dango is there and is playing one of the major roles. I also like the fact that the lead girl has the same feel as the character in the manga just by looking at her, she can look like a boy but a bit of feminine touch to it just like what is portrayed in the manga.

My Own Thoughts: 4/5 stars
This was my very first drama ever watched. A girl who is from a countryside falls into a situation where she has to work off as a housemaid to payoff her parents debt. The storyline is perfectly executed and the main character’s chemistry sizzles through the screen. This drama is enjoyable to watch except the dragging parts to where they have to win his company back. The delivery of their lines is perfect, specially Yang-soon’s countryside accent! The characters’ emotions are well portrayed, and can be felt throughout the drama specially in my favorite scene. T_T

A must see! And good to own for its enjoyable value!
