    Honestly, I think you can’t make a good comparison because trying to cram in EMOTIONAFTEREMOTION in a movie is different from the gradual growth in a drama.

    If I had to make a prediction, however, putting all factors aside, I think I’ll like the Japanese version better. There’s something about j-dorama that doesnt hesistate to push the boundaries of convention and go a little dark/edgy/weird, mixing genres and not conforming to stereotype.
    K-drama/movie, in comparison, while still delightfully fun, tends to stick to whatever the genre dictates… which is good for the audience but can sometimes be too predictable, staid.

      Yeah I agree with you.  I have no idea how they’ll portray the growth that their relationship had in Kimi Wa Petto in a 2 hour movie. And agree also to what you said about jdoramas have no qualms about ‘pushing the boundaries of convention’- I mean are they going to show how randy Momo would be at times with Sumire?  I think not.

      I’m hoping for the best though, and Jang Geun-Suk looks pretty damn adorable.

    I think that the Japanese version will be better because it translated to Japanese culture more than Korean.

     Kimi wa Petto gets my vote!

  • lay

    MatsuJun’s Kimi wa Petto gets my vote too since i believe i will not enjoy watching the Korean version (i can’t stand watching JGS, i love KHN though) and most of the time i prefer the Japanese versions of whatever dramas being made later into Korean versions.

    I’m a bit worried cause well, this is conservative Korea we’re talking about and Kimi Wa Petto the drama had really turned down the sex compared to the manga- what’ll Korea do? not talk about sex at all? do people have sex in Kdramas?
    anyways, Kimi Wa Petto was one of those dramas that made me like Jun, I hadn’t liked him in his moody roles but this one, this one really made me fall in love (which makes me question my self, really, I don’t think of my pets that way) but idk, I’d always seen him in moody roles that when I finally did pick up that drama was a bit shocked (in a good way^^)
    for some reason though, I have this weird feeling JGS has it in him to pull it off, I don’t know why, I’ve never really seen him in a part like this but there’s just something about his smile that sort gives me good vibes… but yeah, this is someone who’s going off good vibes so who knows how this movie’s gonna turn out^^

    lame. why is he between her legs? this looks like it’ll be a much more overtly sexual movie than the drama was. that’s not a good thing at all. he’s supposed to be a PET only, not a prostitute.

    • Anonymous

       well, in the manga the male lead is not a pet like a lovely kitten, he is a sort friend with benefits…there is a lot of sex

      • Anonymous

        As I recall, in the drama the “owner” set a no sex rule with her pet. They had sex once in the drama towards the end. So they not have ” a lot of sex” at all.

             maybe they’ll follow the dorama. I mean this is conservative Korea we’re talking about.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XZMSVOCJOA7ZA47SDPHNBVFNWM Lizzie Heart

        what is the end of the mangá? I always wondered if the jdrama followed it right. ^^

  • Sowon7890

    Kim ha Neul was never in secret garden -_- tht was ha ji won

  • Jenny

    I’m just happy they didn’t change the character description of Sumire, the first plan was to make her into a fashion editor in the korean version ><
    I like Kim Ha Neul so I'm sure she'll pull it off but honestly Jang Geun-Suk is the one I'm worried of, sure he is cute but I imagined Momo to be more like Matsujun. Momo is quite immature and Sumire is the boss in the relationship, Geung-Suk has never had a character like that before.
    Of course I hope this film will be good in it's own way and I do plan to watch it.

    I don’t like the ahjumma hair JGS is having in this poster ……. jun had a messy hair that suited him ^^ but JGS hair? Not my taste………..

    I think the movie and Jdrama are definitely going to be very different. Kimi wa petto is definitely not as light hearted as this version. I think they already mentioned that this movie will be quite different from the drama/ manga. I think the female lead dont even have a bf unlike the version in Kimi wa petto. 

    Don’t expect JKS to be the same as MatsuJun. They are going to be 2 very different Momo since the plot is going to be quite different. This is just going to be a light hearted comedy which i think is good since in Korea, this genre will pull in more audience. I think i am going to love this version since i love both the leads.

    Because Boys Over Flowers irked me to no end and I ran back to my Hana Yori Dango crying, I’m going to say I think I’ll like Kimi Wa Petto XD Remakes of very successful films are hard, because people will have high expectations.

    As much I love JKS, i really don’t think he’ll do so well in that type of role. Like the author said, I don’t think its really its cup of tea. But he’s a good actor so I guess I’ll have to wait and see. Just hope it won’t be the disaster that Boys over Flower was (that was torture to watch after seeing the jap vers)
