How can a girl at the bottom of her class ever hope to capture the attention of the smartest and most popular boy in high school? Ha Ni (Jung So Min) is smitten with Seung Jo (Kim Hyun Joong) from the moment she laid eyes on him on the first day of school. He is the total package – tall, athletic, good-looking, and the envy of all the students because he always gets a perfect score on all his examinations. But Ha Ni’s affections are not returned, despite her energetic efforts to get his attention. Fate throws them under one roof when an earthquake destroys Ha Ni’s family home, and they live temporarily in the home of her father’s childhood friend, who turns out to be Seung Jo’s father. Will Ha Ni ever be able to get Seung Jo to think of her as anything more than a nuisance? “Playful Kiss” is a 2010 South Korean drama that is based on the Japanese manga “Itazura Na Kiss” (“Mischievous Kiss” and its sequel “Mischievous Kiss 2”), which has also been adapted in Taiwan as “It Started With a Kiss” and its sequel “They Kiss Again”.
