I remember this manga from a while back when I use to read Shojo Beat. I had fun reading it even though I didn't start from the beginning. If it's possible I may give this drama show a try.

It's airing this year even though they haven't announced the male lead yet? I wouldn't hold my breath.

I'd like to see a link to an actual source besides DramaFever* (who are not involved in the production of the show, I'm assuming) because I haven't seen this "news" announced/discussed anywhere else (besides threads about the old 2011 rumors).

I'll watch it if/when it actually happens, though. Smile

(*which is just an article about fans' "dream casting" for Night, so basically just pure speculation.)

Thanks to mdo for the news tip


You're welcome ANN

Since the story of Absolute Boyfriend the main female lead is in her 30's, that mean the male lead will have to be in late 20's, or in 30's. But I'm not sure who would fit so I thought about of having Lee Min-ho to play the main lead (Night Tenjo):



For Soshi Asamoto:

Mir of MBLAQ seem to resemble Soshi:





Problem is Mir never acted in a drama unlik his band mate, Lee Joon. So look like Lee Joon is going to give him acting advice.


oh and Poonk I don't know if you heard about this, Liar Game is going to get a K-drama remake.

here's my cast for a K-drama remake of Liar Game:

Seohyun of Girls Generation as Nao Kanzaki



I can accept Oh Hayoung of Apink to play as Nao Kanzaki





Both Seohyun and HaYoung are both academically smart, so I thought those 2 can probably fit Nao Kanazaki.

Akiyama Shinichi, I think I might know couple of actors that might fit the character:

Kim Soo-Hyun



Kyuhyun of Super Junior



I can also accept Donghae of Super Junior:



Seungri of BigBang



Those are the only actor that might fit the male lead for a K-drama adaptation of Liar Game.

mdo7, did you actually watch the original Liar Game J-drama? I didn't, which is why I'm not going to comment on it in the thread for Absolute Boyfriend K-drama. Which I'm still not convinced is actual news and not fan speculation, quite honestly.

I'm planning to watch Liar Game J-drama on CR soon. I got a lot to watch, so I don't know when can I find the time to watch it. But as I said, it's just my fantasy cast for the K-drama.

Just finished watching Taiwanese version of Absolute Boyfriend.
I cried at last. It is SOO sad Anime cryAnime cryAnime cry . In the Japanese version, it's too short and although there's a lovey-dovey kind of atmosphere, still not enough. But still, I cried a river. spoiler[ Watching a recording of his last moment, *sniff* *sniff* and still asking u to smile even though he's gone. ] Who wouldn't cry a river if ur Absolute Boyfriend died like that and still wishes u happiness.

I think that Gong Yoo from Coffee Prince should be Night because he's not just a very good actor. Look at the body and face. *drooling* Besides, the Night from both Taiwanese and Japanese version bodies a little tan and muscular. Perfect with Gong Yoo. Have u seen him in The Suspect? That body especially when he's been tortured. ANYWAY, as for the female lead, I heard that Jeon Ji-Hyun from My Love From The Stars has been considering but that's past news. But considering her role in MLFTS is a big success. Why not in this Korean remake of Absolute Boyfriend??
