    Why is Nodame Cantabile even in there? That one is a legend, and as much as I love Joo Won and his dramas, the Korean one is NOT even close to being as good as the Japanese one. Cantabile Tomorrow is one of those dramas where in first ep you go like "wtf is the producer thinking" or "who created this shitty remake" I rarely ever rate a kdrama as bad, but this one is in that blacklist along with "Fashion King". Too bad bcuz Joo Won and Yoo Ah In are some of the most talented actors out there.

    Korean versions are always way brighter and that usually draws me in more but Hana Yori Dango was special.

    Hana Yori Dango was way better! The ending and the movie were perfect instead of that open ending the korean version had.

    People looking for a good Japanese show should watch Nigeru wa haji da ga yaku ni tatsu (we married as a job)  I know the title sounds typical but you will be suprised at how different it is it will blow ur mind. as for the Korean weight lifting fairy Kim bok joo amazing show the main cast is just go together so well in both of them and it dosent have the cliché bad boy main lead kinda thing so really refreshing to watch.

    I wish people did not vote randomly just because they are Kpop fans. Most of the time the Japanese version is better, from storyline to acting. Korean version have better looking cast though.

    I would also like to add Boys Over Flowers Korea did not give us a Second Season as promised. We did get a Second Season from Hana Yori Dango Japan, and Meteor Garden Taiwan. It would have been nice if Korea had done a Second Season to Boys Over Flowers. Plus I must admit the ending to Boys Over Flowers Korea should have had a better ending.  As well as Playful Kiss Korea we didn't get a Second Season with a proper ending. Thanks
