Absolutely Him News

Actress Kim Ha Neul and Big Bang‘s T.O.P have been cast to play the role of a couple in a new drama called ‘Absolutely Him’.

On October 18th, a source revealed that Kim Ha Neul and T.O.P were confirmed as the lead roles of a new drama, currently scheduled to be aired next March.

‘Absolutely Him’ is a romantic comedy that’s been adapted from a popular Japanese comic. The story features an imaginative story of a woman who orders an android boyfriend to fit her ideal type.

‘Absolutely Him’ has already been adapted into Japanese and Taiwanese dramas under the title, ‘Absolute Boyfriend‘. Both series gained immense popularity, and so the pressure’s on for Korea to do the same. Many are wondering how successfully the story will be translated, and who will join the cast.

The Korean pairing is bringing in strong interest, as T.O.P.’s romantic transformation is one that viewers have seen little of outside of his music videos. Additionally, Kim Ha Neul will continue her streak of being paired up with younger males for major movies (previously, she had teamed up with Yoo Seung Ho in the movie ‘Blind’ and Jang Geun Suk in ‘You are My Pet’).

Tomoko is a Japanese model going down in popularity who is just asked to put together a local warm-up band for an upcoming Japanese super star beach concert to be held in Hengchun. However, recruiting the band members proves to be difficult a task as the search for the famous seven samurai. Still, seven ordinary Hengchun residents end up forming the band.

One day, Aga receives a parcel from Japan not meant for him – in fact, it was to have been delivered at Cape No.7., an address that doesn’t exist anymore… But even though he cannot find the address, Aga doesn’t return the parcel to Japan. Rather, he opens it to find love letters written some 60 years ago by a Japanese teacher and addressed to a Taiwanese girl he was deeply in love with, but had to leave behind Taiwan.

During the process of putting the band together, Aga and Tomoko are constantly at odds with each other, but thanks to the love letters, their conflict-ridden relationship slowly turns into love.

And even though they eventually find the lady the parcel was meant for, it seems that Aga and Tomoko are destined to follow the same footsteps as the girl and the teacher in their own love story… Tomoko must now decide whether she will stay together with Aga or go back to Japan alone

If a student gets on the F4’s bad side, he/she gets a red notice and is bullied and driven out of school.

Makino hopes to pass her days quietly– without drawing any attention to herself– but one day, she stands up to Domyoji in defense of her friend. The next day, Makino gets the dreaded red notice. Even though she is harassed, Makino decides to keep going to school because she is a “tough weed”. She declares war right back on the F4. Her resolve gets the attention of her crush Hanazawa Rui and oddly enough, rouses romantic feelings in her worst enemy, Domyoji Tsukasa.

The series is based on the Japanese shoujo manga “Hana Yori Dango” (Boys Before Flowers) by Kamio Yoko.

The students have multi-colored hair, sloppy uniforms, and show absolutely no respect to her. The leader of the class, Sawada Shin is lazy but bright and shows some interest in Yamaguchi when he notices that she is very different from other teachers. The students try to bully her to make her quit, but their attempts don’t get them very far.

What the class and the rest of the school does not know is that Yamaguchi Kumiko is actually the 4th generation heir to the Ooedo Group, a notorious yakuza clan. Even though her family would like her to take the title of Ojou when her grandfather dies, they have accepted the fact that Yamaguchi would rather be a teacher.

Eventually, the students learn to respect their quirky teacher because of her devotion to them, and even give her a nickname: Yankumi.
