I just finished watching episode 4 of To the Beautiful You (or “For You in Full Blossom” (Bloom), which is the official English title — yuck). It’s only been two weeks, but I’m feeling that watching this drama will be a part of my weekend routine the coming few weeks. The community fansubs are made quickly, so I can watch the Wednesday episode with subtitles on Saturday morning and the Thursday episode on Sunday evening.

The first two episodes of the Korean drama series To the Beautiful You have aired and the fansubs have been released. I decided to give this drama a shot partly because Sulli of f(x) plays the lead character and partly because I liked the sound of the plot. Sulli plays Jae-hee who is a fan of the high-jumper Tae-jun (played by SHINee’s Min-ho).

Sulli of f(x) is starring in the upcoming drama series To the Beautiful You (아름다운 그대에게), which is an adaptation of the Japanese manga Hana-Kimi. Looks very interesting to me. It’s about a girl who idolizes a high-jumper. When he gives up on high-jumping the girl wants to transfer to his school to help him get back. The problem is that it’s an all-boys school, so she disguises herself as a boy to be able to enter.

Co-starring with Sulli is Min-ho from SHINee. There are also members from ZE:A, Infintite and EXO in the drama. The drama is produced by SM Entertainment (as the cast hints at) on SBS.
