Manga-Based Dramas Are Not Always A Formula For Success

News via kdramastars.com

This month three new manga-based dramas began. While "Tomorrow Cantabile" is getting a lukewarm response, the other two show promise. "The Liar Game, starring Lee Sang Yoon, Kim So Eun and Shin Sung Rok, is based on the manga series "Liar Game" by Shinobu Kaitani. In this manga-drama, contestants participate in a game show where they can win $10 million dollars. The only catch is that they have to lie and cheat to get the money. And the contest hosts have chosen basically honest decent people, such as Kim So Eun"s character, to play. Since it is being shown on a cable channel, you can"t really compare the ratings to regular network show but the second episode"s 1.05 rating is a respectable cable rating.

And then there is "Misaeng." This drama about a hellish workplace is adapted from the manhwa by "Misaeng" by Yoon Tae Ho. It"s the story of a baduk player who has no office skills but winds up in an office where he is bullied and looked down upon by the other interns. This drama is also on a cable station and earned ratings of 2.35 percent by its second episode.

In the drama, the alien Do Min Joon, played by Kim Soo Hyun lands on earth during the Joseon era and tries to save the life of a young girl. He fails. As he never ages, he keeps on living on earth hoping for a chance to go home. He meets a young girl who looks exactly like the girl he lost. Only this time he can save her life. Twelve years later they meet again. She has become a Hallyu star and is played by Jun Ji Hyun. They fall in love.

In "Seol Hee," a girl is operated on by an alien and gets to live 400 years. She falls in love with a movie star she met in the U.S. when she was a little girl. The movie star is the alien who first helped her.

"The results of a careful analysis indicate that the main characters, plot and development of events in both "Seol Hee" and "You Who Came From The Stars" are very similar," said a Kang Ho Law Firm representative.

Meanwhile, Joo Won has signed on to play the role of Shinichi Chiaki in the comic turned J-drama, film and now k-drama,"Nodame Cantible." He"s a classical student at a music college and an arrogant perfectionist. But he"s not as perfect as he would like people to believe. Because of his phobias, he"s afraid of planes and the ocean. He finds it hard to travel. He falls for Nodame, a quirky but talented pianist. Actress Shim Eun Kyung, who won praise for her work in the films "Miss Granny" and "Sunny" is considering the role of Nodame.

Group 8, the same production company that adapted the manga "Hani Yori Dango" into the successful "Boys Over Flowers," will produce "Nodame Cantible." With its comic book appeal, "Boys Over Flowers" launched Lee Min Ho"s career and is now considered a classic k-drama. The same production company had less success producing "Pretty Man," which starred Jang Geun Suk and IU. It"s the story of a man whose fate is decided by a succession of women. It was based on a manga of the same name but failed to earn decent ratings.

After playing a role in the manga-turned-drama "Boys Over Flowers," Kim Hyun Joong tried another manga-inspired drama, "Playful Kiss." This drama about a girl who devotes herself to winning the affections of her classmate, is based on the Japanese manga "Playful Kiss" by Tada Kaoru, but varies from the original story.

DBSK's Changmin Resembles a Manga Character?

News via soompi.com

On the February 12 episode of Moonlight Prince the cast members were talking on topic of the famous manga Slam Dunk. During the discussion, Changmin pointed out a particular character. I think shooter Shin Joon Sub is interesting. I emphasize with the character who overcame his poor physique through practice.

In Slam Dunk Shin Joon Sub is a character who practices shooting the basket 500 times a day, despite having a difficult life. Changmin sympathized with the character who is known for his hard work rather than natural talent.

Netizens who saw the resemblance commented, So its true that Changmin really did some out of a manga, Its like they drew Changmin, and The appearance and the personality are really similar.

Dong Jin and comrades discuss their plan and he says, “All we have to do now is to gather our troops and the Mansei movement will be all set to move into action.” Shunji whispers something to Koiso n there’s too much music in between so I can’t understand it. As Shunji stares out his office window, he mutters, “Alright, Lee Kang To… Let’s take this to the end!” Koiso brings two students to meet him-the students who are to be drafted for the army!

Dong Jin tells his comrades, “We must succeed!” and they hold hands together. In conference with the governor general, Wada is briefed by Yoshio, “Kimura Shunji is presently going after the Dong Jin’s death troops. This time we can be sure.” Wada excitedly asks, “Really?“
