To the Beautiful You, the K-drama retelling of popular Japanese manga Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, has been rolling out teasers like crazy over the last few weeks. Several commercial spots and countless photos of the cast have been released in preparation for one of the most anticipated dramas of the summer. And we can’t wait…In To the Beautiful You, Goo Jaehee (f(x)’s Sulli) poses as a boy and enrolls at an all-boys high school. Why? To meet her idol and high jump gold-medalist Kang Taejoon (SHINee‘s Minho), of course. Along the way, the two get tangled in a love triangle with charming soccer player Cha Eun Gyul (Lee Hyun Woo). If the story follows the original plot, equal parts romance and hilarity will ensue.
With the 2012 London Olympics now in progress, special press attention has been paid to Minho’s dedication to his character, a highly-skilled high jump athlete. Apparently, one of the filming days consisted of two hours of continuous shooting in Korea’s extreme summer heat for a high jump scene. Staff on set reported that Minho didn’t break character even once. Impressive.
Rounding out the supporting cast of characters are actress Kim Ji Won (High Kick 3), actor Yoo Min Kyu (Shut Up: Flower Boy Band), ZE:A’s Kwanghee, members of EXO, and more.
To the Beautiful You will air its pilot episode on August 15th.
