Whenever I read/heard the word Nodame Cantabile, I'll automatically reminisce about the old days when I was still a Uni student. I still remember the old me sitting in front of my computer inside my dorm reading the manga or anxiously waiting for the update of the manga(weekly). Or me and couple of friends hang out together watching the series. I have such fond memories about that manga and it drama series because it happened during my most enjoyable carefree period(my study years) and I am double fond of that period.
Long story short, I happened to read the manga and freaking loved it. Then the japanese series came out and I was really worried on how they going to proceed with the plot. I was really worried that they gonna spoil the characters and spoil the whole story. But, those worries were put to rest as the drama series were really really good. I still remember that I've thought to myself while watching the drama that they got the real Chiaki and the real Nodame for this. Not just those two, almost all the characters played superbly according to the manga. It was that good that makes me feel so good. Hats off I tell ya.
anyway, that was like in 2006/2007. So it's been a while since then...
and now, in 2014, the korean want to make a remake of the manga/japanese drama which called Naeil's Cantabile. When I first read the news, I was like...NO! I mean..... NO! it just NO!....It doesn't make any sense. Why would you want to do a remake of a masterpiece! I just dont get it! I am so against it that I decided to just not care about it. I mean, I'm not going to watch something that going to spoil MY Nodame!!!
Last Friday night, my sis came to my room to work on some props for the Aulad's Convocation and she was so bored while doing that. So she opened up a streaming website and watched the drama. (She has mentioned prior to that time that she watched some of the episode and it was good and funny as hell. But I said, NO! of course). I keep on focusing on finishing up my props so I dont really watched it + I really am stubborn about not watching the drama. But thing is, even if my eyes were not on the screen, my ears can still hear the conversation. And it sound kinda good! plus my sister keep on laughing her ass off. And I ended up stealing several glances while doing my work.
On Sunday, I opened the streaming website. And watched the drama.
It was good...kekekek..Man, they got the right person to play the characters. That's a big relief. And Yoo Jin got long legs similar to Chiaki's(manga) and weirdly I was really happy about that.
So, the drama is still running. But so far, the plot and the stories were good. Not bad..
