Scratch POP: Proposal Daisakusen vs. Operation Proposal

Hellujah... Chance!!!

Remember the smash hit J-Durama series Proposal Daisakusen in 2007???
If you don't or if you have not seen it yet, I am telling you... you missing an f***ing half of your life...
I mean, atleast for me, it is maybe one of the most well-made Asian series of all time... even better than Meteor Garden by a clear mile...
With its perfect mix of romance-fantasy-comedy and relate-ability, what's not to like???

Anyways, wonderin' why am I blabbing and promoting this series after almost half a decade???
Hmmmm... I just found out that Korea is having a remake of this uber-fave series...
Well, well, well... skeptically, I was not so sure if the the Korean remake will stand up to my expectations. I mean... it was sky high, so a tough call. But.. nevertheless, curious enough, I search the K-series online and found this credible YouTube channel (itzmethatzkie) that uploads this series with very readable and lexical english sub... good for me...
And, to my surprise, I actually liked it (a lot)... maybe because they have the same plot or what... I dunno? but I definitely liked it...

Then, I asked myself... which of the two I liked better??? Well, because I am a detail maniac, I have to weigh things through different lights and angles...
Disclaimer: The following thoughts are exclusively mine and mine alone. Whateva similarities represented from others maybe purely coincidental or just a result om wide depicted imagination. wooohoooo 

Story: Proposal Daisakusen has a more fast-paced story... more of like direct to the point. Most of the episode focuses only to Ken and Rei (the main protagonist and antagonist). On the other hand, operation Proposal's pacing is slower, more of like taking their time. Although its main gist is still the second-chance love story of Kang Bae Ho and Ham Yi Seul (Ken and Rei's Korean counterpart, respectively), it is more like a baseball-ish story... the sports which most of the characters are connected to.

Casts: This would be quick... Kang Bae Ho is so much cuter than Ken. Rei is way prettier than Ham Yi Seul... I liked Tsuru and Erin in the Japanese version in more ways than one compared to their Korean versions... and... I liked the Korean's version of other male friend... <period>

Chant: I like saying " Hallelujah Chance (with the hand movement)... Wahhhhhh!!!" so much more more more... than "Renovatio, renovatio, renovatio!" Whatyathink???

Well... that's all I think of....for now... atleast....

The Operation Proposal is not finished yet... but I'm closely monitoring it... If you want to experience it too, watch the first episode below... and you'll surely get hooked... no doubt...

And... and... and...if you happen to be a close friend of mine and if you want to see the Japanese series-Proposal Daisakusen (very soon: as recommended) kindly approach me and I would gladly give you a copy...

Renovatio... Renovatio... Renovatio...


  1. hindi ko pa natatapos ang first episode ng Operation Proposal, pero ang masasabi ko lang, mas maganda nga si Rei (though pareho silang maganda). :)

    at mas gusto ko ang hallelujah chance! hindi ko pa naririnig yang renovatio renovatio na yan.

    susubukan ko panooring ang korean version, sana lang hindi siya dragging.

    lastly, i was half expecting na mababasa ko name ko dito. credit must be due to the one who told you about this. hahahahahahah. :P

    ps. hindi ba Jdorama, hind Jdurama?

  2. I like the japanese version way better. IDK why :P and I think Ken is the better looking. xD my opinion though xDDD

  10. Hello. Can I have a copy of Proposal Daisakusen? Because I have watched it in a site and I seem can't understand many of the dialouge- maybe the translation is too deep to understand. I got hooked up to this because I can relate to it. Hehe. Can you send it to my email address? rollyjinayon994@gmail.coM Thanks.

  11. Thanks for sharing such a good information..

  12. Pro Dai way better...

    simple but more realistic....

    operation proposal is too much on visual effects and lack of audience appeal...

    1. I agree... PD is technically better... but the video message of Kang Bae Ho on Ham Yi Seul's wedding is so heart breaking... I guess that evened the field for me...

  15. Hi!!!! I am a great fan of Proposal Daisakusen!!! I really loved it. I watched it several times and I want to watch it again. However, I lost my DVD of it. Can you please give me a copy of it? Sorry if I am not a close friend of yours.

    Please send it here if you decide to give me a copy.
    Hallelujah Chance!!!!!!

  16. gustong gusto ko ang pagbanggit ni kenzo boy ng HALLELUJAH CHANCE WAAAHHHHH!!!! hahahahha natawa lng ako sa sinabi ni bae ho renovatio???? hahaha nevermind basta the best ang operation daisakusen :::)))

  17. Mas maganda pa rin ProDai. Dahil mas simple at realistic. Relate na relate ako. Dagdag pa yung tagos sa puso na soundtracks. Mas realistic din yung acting ng cast at nakakakilig tlga sila Rei at Kenzo. Mas randam ko yung lungkot ni Kenzo unlike sa korean version. Ep 2 plng ako sa korean version pero ayoko na ituloy parang overacting mga cast. Yun lng. True yung sinabi mo na dapat mapanood nila yung ProDai dhil pag hindi you're missing a half of your life :))
