Netizens create a virtual cast of SM’s Korean adaptation drama of “Hana Kimi”

SM Entertainment announced that they would be producing the Korean adaptation of the Japanese manga “Hana Kimi” on March 10th. The topic has gotten many fans excited and even resulted in “Hana Kimi” trending on Twitter a few minutes after announcements. Netizens began to make their own virtual cast of the upcoming drama.

“Hana Kimi” has already received hot reactions in Taiwan and Japan with their live adaptation of the drama in 2006 and 2007 respectively. The storyline of “Hana Kimi” is about a girl who enters an all-boy high school disguised as a male.

This announcement from SM Entertainment follows the successful ending of the JYP Entertainment produced idol drama “Dream High.” Netizens have been speculating that the majority of the Korean “Hana Kimi” cast will be portrayed by SM artists since the company will be in charge of producing it.

A SM Entertainment representative has said regarding the cast, “There will be SM artists casted in the drama, but not everyone will be included.”

Netizens have listed the possibilities of the following SM idol cast:

Mizuki Ashiya (female lead)- Taeyeon (SNSD), Sulli f(x)
Mizuki Ashiya is the lead female character in “Hana Kimi” who disguises herself as a male high school student to help the high-jumper, Izumi Sano, jump again.

Izumi Sano (male lead): Minho (SHINee), Eunhyuk (Super Junior)
Izumi Sano is the lead male lead character. He suddenly stopped high-jumping for unknown reasons and finds out Ashiya Mizuki’s true gender accidentally early in the series.

Shuichi Nakatsu (second male lead): Sungmin (Super Junior)
Nakatasu becomes Ashiya’s close friend at Osaka Gakuen (Academy) and begins to realize his feelings for her, not realizing she is actually female. He becomes conflicted with himself, thinking that he is a homosexual, and becomes jealous of Sano for being close with Ashiya.

Minami Nanba (head dorm of 2nd dormitory) – Changmin (TVXQ)
Nanba is the head dorm of the 2nd dormitory and a “ladies man” with multiple girlfriends at a time (when he’s not found out). The 2nd dormitory includes a mix of athletic and scholar students. The 1st dormitory mainly consists of athletes, while the 3rd mainly consists of artistic and intelligent students.

Hokuto Umeda (school doctor) – Heechul (Super Junior), Yunho (TVXQ)
The hot homosexual doctor at Osaka Gakuen. He is the first to know about Ashiya’s true gender and gives her advice and acts as her mentor throughout the series. Umeda is Nanba’s uncle.

The Korean adaptation of “Hana Kimi” is set to air this summer with a total of 16 episodes. Which SM artist do you think should play which role? Do you like the netizens suggestions above?

  1. No! I don’t agree if Taeyeon is the lead female.. I don’t want her to have kissing scenes.. If Taeyeon is Mizuki, Sano must be Leeteuk.. XD

  2. I have read the manga twice and I think the best person who can pull off Mizuki would be f(x) amber. She has that boyish charm but still has some girly aspect to herself. Plus she can speak in English fluently which helps a lot for the role of Mizuki since she is from the U.S. Amber can pull the Mizuki character well in my opinion

    As for Sano… Minho can probably play that part but I still think he still looks a little bit baby looking.

    The male lead seems hard to cast but i would have to stick to Amber for the female lead even though her korean might not be perfect.

  3. i vote kyuhyun for the lead~~as for the not sure.taeyeon’s my bias though~but i wouldnt want her to kiss anyone!!

  4. i’m disagree if eunhyuk will act as sano, sungmin will act as nakatsu, and changmin will act as nanba. they dont have the feeling of each character.

    but i’m agree if heechul will act as hokuto-san…

  5. i think minho protrays the cracter sano because he is athletic and a really good actor . dont think sulli should be the main female lead since she has a female look unlike amber ( except her korean is abit wobbly )but she will do fine i no ……

  6. Minho would fit the part atheletically, but I don’t know if he can pull it off emotionally, maybe someone older like Changmin or Yunho? As for the female lead, Amber would be interesting considering how she has a boyish charm to her. Sulli is “too cute” for the role in my opinion. The female lead isn’t the “cute” type (she dresses like a male come onnn). Heechul would be more fun as the dorm head, considering how he’s a ladies man and corky. Leeteuk as the school doctor would be hilarious!

  7. if minho is starring sano, i’d like to have yuri as mizuki, they look so cute together, but yuri is very feminine so, maybe amber?? heechul will be good for umeda but i’d like to see yunho acting some different kind of character, so i pick yunho for umeda. and i think heechul can totally pull off as nanba.

  8. Look at this pictures.
    I think Taeyeon fits to be Mizuki =)
    I’ve watch Hana Kimi
    Mizuki was a cute guy then turn out to be a beautiful lady.

  9. i TOTALLY agree if Minho become Sano .. But i prefer Krystal to be Mizuki ~ MinStal ❤
    honestly both Taeyeon and Sulli doesn't suit so well with Mizuki character, i think..
    Amber really suits Mizuki character ~
    but i want MinStal :pp
