Gao Mei Nü is a pure girl, that grew up in an orphanage and now wants to become a nun. She prepares to go to Africa, to help the unfortunate people there, when out of the blue the manager of her twin brother appears in front of her and asks her, to help Mei Nan keep his spot in an idol group. He wants to become famous to find their mother. Touched by the story and her brothers effors, she agrees to play her brother for a short time. But then she has to live in the same house as them and get along with the strict and unforgiving Tai Qing, who also happens to discover her secret in no time!

For me, this was the third time watching the story of "You're Beautiful". A good story can't get too boring, but I have to admit, the first 5 episodes were a hard fight to stay awake and sit through them. Maybe it was, because I'd watched the japanese version shortly before that, but I coudln't make myself watch it for a long time. Starting from episode 8, everything went better. The episodes were over quickly and I finally got to enjoy all the characters... Maybe it was also, because Jeremy finally got more screening time.

Surprisingly in this version, I liked different characters then in the versions before. And even though the story wasn't different, I liked the ending a lot more than in the original version.

Aside from that, there isn't much to say about this drama. It's nice and the acting is fine, the music is the same (but I didn't really like this version of the songs...) and everything was enjoyable.

Since I enjoyed the ending, I decided to give it 4*. The base story was really good, so this would have had a hard time, trying to be bad. Watch it, if you miss You're beautiful!

It's so long to wait...
Actually I didn't really like any of the other versions... But I'll give this one a try since I like Taiwanese dramas.

Yeah sooo this looks like another EXACT SCENE FOR SCENE REPLICA of YB.. but at least the guys are actually good looking in this one instead of the awkward 12 year old frogs in the Japanese version. >.>
