Taiwanese remake of a hit drama You're Beautiful. The story revolves around a fictional boy band named A.N.JELL. The management company of the idol group A.N.JELL insisted on adding a new singer to the group as the lead vocal, Tai Jing's voice was hurting. However,the new member, Mei Nan, had to go to the States to repair a botched eye job just before signing the contract. His agent came up with the idea of having his twin sister, Gao Mei Nu a nun-in-training who has to pose as her twin brother and take his place in the group and to stand in for him. The two of them grew up in an orphanage and Mei Nu, who was all set to become a nun, agreed to this charade as she didn't want to spoil her brother's chance of fame which would make it easier to look for their mother. The story leads to a complicated relationship between the group's members: jealousy arises and love comes in between.

    ok so when i decided to watch this i had only one reason : jiro wang (i recently got into tdramas and he is one of my first biases) .considering that i had already watched the other versions i mean j&k version i was like 100% sure that there will be A LOT of fast watching waiting for me but it didn't happen.in my idea this was waaaaaay better than the other versions .in k version although it was cute and all; the main lead chemistry was off for me and in jversion they made it short which caused me not to believe the whole *great love* going on !but this one it had everything that i wanted.Jiro wang was not childish and less jerk than read more

    This is the best remake I have ever seen. And I have to admit I liked it even more than the original, and I loved the Korean "You are beautiful".

    I found FB to be more romantic, which is one of the reasons I love Asian Dramas.
    Jiro Wang nailed the part!! But perhaps I am biased becuae I liked him in "It started with a kiss." Here I saw a more mature, manly and serious version of him and I totally loved him!
    We can clearly see how he slowly develops feeling for Gao Mei Nam.
    He is not so childish as Tae Kyung and more jealous! Always a plus for me!

    Lee HongKi will always be my Jeremy , but Evan Yo is adorable!

    I generally don't watch Taiwanese drama, but I literally just finished Ikemen Desu Ne and started it. Only a few minutes in, but Park Shin Hye's comments referring to YB! Made me laugh~ Looking forward to this drama, based off of all these reviews.

    totally loved this version <3 and agree with FatemehVIP`s review, tyhe best version of the story ^_^
  • TheraTD Jan 14, 2014
    Having watched the original back in 2009, I skipped through many scenes because it was exactly the same(except for the ending).
    The actors did a great job. Can't get enough of Jeremy in every version =p
  • joyje Jan 12, 2014
    Both Korean and Taiwanese are almost the same. Didn't know Jiro Wang w so good looking. This is the first time I watch his drama. Overall the drama was not too draggy compared to the other Taiwanese drama I have watched. Really loved his body and great acting!
  • lettuceloveHJ Jan 2, 2014
    Although I hated "You're Beautiful", Jiro Wang as the male lead of this Taiwanese version changed my reception of this predictable story. I especially loved every moment of his jealousy. I rated "Fabulous Boys" with a 7.

    I felt this drama was amazing! It really followed the Korean one "You're beautiful". I LOVED the emphasis they put on the twin brother, it's what I've been DYING to see, and now I can rest in peace! By the way, did anyone else notice the female lead in "You're beautiful" make a special appearance in this drama, or is it just me??

      lol ok, good, I didn't see any comments about it so I was just wondering... Oh! And the male lead for You're Beautiful guest stars in the Japanese version, Ikemen Desu Ne! Looking forward to it! ^_^
    • FatemehVIP Dec 26, 2013

      I just finished watching the Japanese version!! He definitely has more scenes, but again, not enough... They should have extended his appearance. It was nice to see him again though! =)

    • Stasiamae Mar 13, 2014
      Yeah it was! She also made a few comments referring to You're Beautiful. I thought it was cute. XD
  • bluemoon_onna Nov 28, 2013
    I believe this is equally good with the original... or even a bit better! My only disappointment is Mei Nan's haircut- coconut husk cut. :-)

  • chaoticlolita Nov 22, 2013
    Coming from a person who didn't watch or like the korean version and only watched 4 episodes of the Japanese version- I enjoyed it! The characters all had good chemistry and all acted really well! It made me cry, laugh and question how they got such a nice house! My only problem was that the story line in the last 3 episodes felt like it dragged on and I really dislike how quickly the plot dealt with Jeremy's and Jiang's feelings. They barely focused on Jeremy and he had one of the best scenes in the whole drama!
  • pigbunny Nov 5, 2013
    *SIGH AND TEARS* still cant believed i'ved already finished the series. :( I now dont know what to do in my life. LOL!!! Worth rewatching!! Taijing's hot and gorgeous
  • pigbunny Nov 5, 2013
    I can still remember how i loved "Nakatsu Shuichi" character of Hana Kimi portrayed by Ikuta Toma, and I was really really irritated on how the taiwanese version of it had Jiro Wang played the same character. I really did disagreed with that fact and hated jiro at first sight. But now things turned out differently!!! I am so loving jiro wang because of this series!!! He's so handsome and hot! And his voice is the loveliest amongst the three people who portrayed the notorious led vocals of ANJell! Giving this series a perfect 11! Lol
  • pigbunny Nov 5, 2013
    Jiro Wang did a great job! Lovin taijing!!! Just finished the series and it made my heart melt. Cried my eyes out! Too beautiful. I can now say I am really inlove with huang taijing/jiro wang! Taijing's too too too too cute when he shows signs of his jealousy!! I am definitely gonna rewatch this series! Scenes were really really romantic!
  • MysticLullaby Nov 1, 2013
    I really enjoyed this drama, I love it, not as much as the Korean version because it means a lot to me but it was as good as it and some scenes were way more romantic than you're beautiful which I really liked. If you love You're Beautiful than you should love this even if you do compare the two. I give it a 10 like i gave You're Beautiful.
