Live-action romantic comedy Skip-Beat! comes to DramaFever
DramaFever is pleased to present Skip Beat!, the live-action adaptation of popular Japanese manga Skip Beat! (スキップ・ビート! Sukippu Bīto!), starring Super Junior's Siwon and Donghae, as well as Taiwanese actress Ivy Chen. The first ten episodes will air August 13. Visit HERE to sign up for episode alerts.
Desperate to capture the heart of her friend, Gong Xi (Ivy Chen) gives up on college to support Bu Puo Shang's (Lee Dong Hae) dream of stardom. Through odd jobs, Gong Xi launches Shang into fame, only to be betrayed. Vowing vengeance, Gong Xi auditions for the biggest talent agency, determined to out-shine her backstabbing friend. Meanwhile, fellow talent Dun He Lian (Choi Si Won) disapproves of Gong Xi's motives, but can't help but fall for her. Revenge never tasted so sweet!
Ivy Chen: The pixie-like Ivy is perfect for the role of Gong Xi, the naive girl who sacrificed to support Shang to become an idol star. Ivy was first discovered when she was working at a restaurant, and she has become a popular actress in Taiwan and China in both TV dramas and movies.
Choi Si Won: Super Junior's Siwon plays the enigmatic Dun He Lian, who will fall for the unpredictable Gong Xi through hilarious encounters. It is really an awesome opportunity here to watch the handsome and talented singer/model/actor in a lighthearted romance comedy.

Lee Dong Hae: Multi-talented Donhae is best known as the main vocalist, dancer, and rapper for Super Junior. He plays Bu Puo Shang, whose betrayal of Gong Xi led to her quest for revenge. Donghae also sings the ending theme song "That's Love" with Super Junior-M member Henry.
The Taiwanese live-action adaptation of Skip Beat! is 23 episodes long and follows the manga pretty closely with a unique comedic flair. It's really an ingenious concept to use two Korean pop idols to star as idol stars in the Taiwanese drama. Siwon and Donghae stayed in Taiwan for four months to film the series. Skip Beat! was broadcast in Taiwan from late 2011 to early 2012, and it has also been popular in other Asian countries.
