Late for a meeting, Kotoko was running along the corridor in school and bumped into Naoki, their lips meeting. Naoki showed his disgust, but Kotoko started to idolise him, who was good at everything from studies to sports. When Kotoko’s house burned down, her father’s good friend Machiko invited them to move in with her family. It was then that Kotoko realised Naoki was the elder son of Machiko, who took up the role of a fairy-godmother to bring the two together…despite the fact that Naoki was disgusted. Not discouraged, the clumsy and not-so-bright Kotoko started to do everything that would change her impression on him. Gradually, the icy-cold Naoki who disliked girls started to feel for Kotoko..
My Comment :
Itazura Na Kiss is one of my all time favorite old J-dorama. It is really a funny drama and still can make me laugh whenever I rewatch it . Sato Aiko is so hillarious as Kotoko whereas Kashiwabara Takashi is so cool as Naoki Irie
Despite the fact that Hana Yori Dango is more popular but I personally still prefer Itazura Na Kiss. Somehow, I like the character of Irie Naoki more than Domyoji Tsukasa. Unfortunately the author of the manga, Tada Kaoru, died before finishing the love story of Naoki-Kotoko.
Anyway, not so long ago I watch the Taiwanese version as well as the animation and love them both. I will post them separately later.
Since I am a Korean drama lover, for some time I was wondering why there was no Korean version has ever been made. Everybody is just like talking about Hana Yori Dango but not this one until recently I read from the net that the Korean version is finally will be made. I am definitely looking forward to it.
