jdrama: hana kimi

Hana-Kimi, known in Japan as Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (“For You in Full Blossom”) is a shōjo manga series written by Hisaya Nakajo.

Hana-Kimi centers on Mizuki Ashiya, a Japanese girl who lives in the United States. One day, she sees a track and field competition on TV, and becomes attracted to one of the competitors, Izumi Sano, competing in the high jump. She begins to idolize the young athlete and eventually transfers to Japan to attend the same school that Sano attends. There is a catch, however—Sano attends an all-boys high school, named Osaka Gakuen, and Mizuki must disguise herself as a boy to enter. The majority of the series happens during Mizuki’s second year at Osaka (from Volume 4 onwards), although her first year was significant for her being able to remain in Osaka.

hanazawa rui from hana yori dango stars as sano, the athlete whom mizuki is trying to help (or stalk). he still has the same passive emo look that you saw in HYD. i loved the dramedy in this series especially when elicited by nakatsu, sano's bestfriend. i sooo adore nakatsu! cute and funny. the way he struggles with himself... coz he feels he's falling in love with mizuki, knowing he's a guy! hahaha he refuses to believe it.. not wanting to be dubbed a fag. however, the heart has ways that you can't understand. so he admitted his liking for mizuki, in spite of the consequences.

i heard there's a taiwanese version too. abs-cbn airs the jap version while gma shows the taiwan version. just great eh?
