Pop out again!!! ㅋㅋㅋ still in my (own) euphoria after watched Itazurana Kiss Anime Ver for the nth-time ㅎㅎㅎ I miss Naoki Irie and her ‘foolish-but-lovable- wife, Kotoko Irie, 도 don’t forget their cute and smart daughter too, Kotomi Irie, I am a big fan of this little family J
Thanks to Kaoru Tada for creating this flawless manga, it is too addicting, even though she hasn’t and won’t finished the story cause of a tragic accident she had, hope she’ll rest in peace.
Anime ver is the only one with a ‘clear-complete’ ending; there is no cliff-hanger like other versions. The director made a very happily-ever-after ending; they had a daughter, smart daughter indeed, like her father. God only chose the best for Kotomi Irie, her father’s smartness, her mom’s cheerfulness, brown eyes like Kotoko’s and brown hair like Naoki’s. Yet, she is a father-complex lol even that foolish Kotoko was envying her own daughter ㅋㅋㅋ.
Remembering the first time I realized this manga was on my first grade of JHS. One of private channels broadcasted the Japanese live action of this manga, has the same title, Itazurana Kiss, played by Aiko Sato and Takashi Kashiwabara, at that time I directly fell in love with Naoki Irie >< Their first kissing was an accidental-kiss, they bumped into each other on school’s corridor and THEY KISSED (accidentally) !!!! ㅎㅎㅎㅎI still remember Naoki’s sore eyes =3= the producer team made the right decision to choose Takashi Kasiwabara as Naoki Irie, he played it perfectly. I am envying Aiko Sato’s height ㅜㅜ The dumb moment, when Kotoko stalked Naoki in a hospital by brought some urine samples but then they (Naoki and Kotoko) bumped up (again) and that urine splashed into Kotoko’s uniform lol even though it only has 12 episodes, I still mark this live action ver as one of my favourites, the ending is awesome !!! Naoki chased Kotoko, who were going to continue her study in a different place, until he found her; right beside the on-going-train, and then you know what will happen, THEY KISSED.
And then, this is my very-most favourite versionnnnnngggggg, Taiwanese Version >< This ver splitted up this manga into two seasons, It started with A Kiss and They Kissed Again. Played by Ariel Lin and Joseph Zheng. I find the most-foolish Kotoko in this ver, Ariel’s acting was really EPIC!!!
Yuan Xiang Qin and Jiang Zhi Shu –Taiwanese names- is my favourite couple after all. I can say that ISWAK is story before they get married and TKA is their married life’s story. My heart was successfully captured by Jiang Zhi Shu, can I find someone like him in my real life?? /sigh. If I can, I’ll give this couple thousands thumbs up J cold-hearted-but-possesive Jiang Zhi Shu is 짱 !!! I sobbed when I was watching the last episode ㅠㅠ but there was a cliffhanger, the series ended when they were on the way to hospital, checked whether Xiang Qin was really pregnant or not.
The latest one is Playfull Kiss. I don’t really pay attention to this Korean ver, the reason? I think Kim Hyun Jeong isn’t fit enough into Naoki’s role. He is cold but doesn’t have any possessive-ness while looking at Oh Ha Ni. So I say the drama is kinda flat. I haven’t watched it thoroughly until the last episode. Eumm, but I think Jung So Min is beautiful indeed J and also I love their cute accessories and that Korean style ㅋㅋㅋ
eumm, I don’t have much time right now, maybe next time I’ll post another differences between these versions 😀
Oh, I want to share this lovely quote 🙂
