TwDrama: Skip Beat

I’ve been keeping off writing an update on my highly anticipated TwDrama: Skip Beat. Why? Because I went gaga over the Manga on which it was adapted (the manga itself is still on-going). I have very high expectation on this one and hope I will not be disappointed anymore.

I already got disappointed early when the Ariel Lin-Jerry Yan plans, after getting so much hype (even donning a press con in Japan) got shelved.

Then they announced another Taiwan–Korea–Japan collaboration (same with Hayate the Combat Butler) with the script from a Japanese Manga, the male leads Ren and Shou from Korea and Kyoko from Taiwan. Will the names be changed? I hope not!

I am getting too excited again, now you know why I don’t want to post anything about Skip Beat!

Title: 華麗的挑戰 / Hua Li De Tiao Zhan
English title: Skip-Beat!
Also known as: Extravagant Challenge
Genre: Romance, comedy
Air time: Sunday 22:00-23:30

Manga Synopsis - Sixteen year old Mogami Kyoko sacrificed her life to support her boyfriend, Sho, so he could become a successful singer. One day, Sho suddenly breaks up with Kyoko, leaving her with nothing, and Kyoko vows revenge. She decides to delve into the entertainment world and become even more successful than Sho to get back at him. Kyoko therein meets Ren, another actor in her agency, who helps motivate her to become a top entertainer.

Oh! Oh! Oh!!! They're making Skip Beat into a drama!!! I'm an avid fan of the manga too and they don't come out soon enough for me!!! ... But I first watch the anime before the manga and it's so so so addictive!!! Yeah, I agree that tw and jp made better adaptation with their over-the-top acting... Which is really close to manga/anime's style... I wonder how Kyoko's demons will be potrayed hihihihi... Can't wait!!!
