Still working my way through Ti Amo Chocolate (goodness is it long) but I also watched episode 1 of Ma Boy, a short Korean drama where the main guy character crossdresses as a girl and somehow ends up becoming a hit idol (when he keeps getting overlooked as himself). New girl transfers to the boarding school and ends up as his roommate, which gives him all sorts of trouble.
This is like a scenario straight out of all those genderbender showbiz manga I’ve read. Especially Tenshi ja nai! I find it less usual to see a drama based on a guy crossdressing as a girl (the only other one I’ve watched is Princess Princess), so coming across this was awesome.
He also does look quite cute as a girl (he’s the one in the back on both sides of the girl), though his frame is wider than most girls and he has to hunch a bit. When he’s crossdressing, he doesn’t talk at all. I guess his voice would give him away. (Just like how in other crossdressing drama, the girls crossdressing as guys never sound like guys… I guess the voice problem was avoided here by not talking at all.)
This is only 3 episodes long!
