Hi guys I’m just going to tell you waaay ahead of time that the next “for Sure” recap project that I’m going to tackle will also be a taiwanese drama^^ I can’t help it, especially since it involves two of my very lovely Super Junior members. It’s Extravagant Challenge!
I am looking forward to SIwon’s acting, though I’m a little wary of Donghae’s acting, because he’s pretty much a newbie to acting with only two acting creds to his name: SJ’s Attack of the Pin-up Boys and this past year’s K-drama It’s Alright Daddy’s girl.
Also how can I not be interested in the first adaptation to one of my most favourite mangas? I want to see it so badly. I hope that the characters aren’t changed too much from the manga though I don’t mind if they change minor details. Skip Beat manga is very fun and there’s a lot that can be mined from it so I hope that it’s done well and we all have a thoroughly enjoyable ride throughout^^
About three years ago it had been rumoured that Ariel Lin took up the project and then it was announced that she’d dropped it. I was so sad since I’d just finished watching TKA at that moment and was looking forward to another Ariel Lin drama. The drama was also taken up and dropped by it’s male lead, and without a cast it floated around for quite awhile.
Then came the very happy news that it was taken up by Siwon and Donghae and that the female lead would be Ivy Chen of who I unsurprisingly know zero about.
Right now we’re looking towards a Mid-December release date so keep it on your calenders!
