It is based on the Japanese shōjo manga series, Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (花ざかりの君たちへ, For You in Full Blossom), written by Hisaya Nakajo. The Korean series is the fourth television adaptation of the manga following the Taiwanese Hanazakarino Kimitachihe in 2006, the Japanese Hanazakari no Kimitachi e in 2007 and its remake Hanazakari no Kimitachi e 2011.
To the beautiful you she s mine
Goo Jae-hee (Sulli) is a Korean girl who lives in the United States. One day, she sees a track and field competition on TV, and becomes attracted to one of the high jump competitors, Kang Tae-joon (Choi Min-ho). She begins to idolize the young athlete and eventually transfers to Korea to attend the same school that Tae-joon attends after he suffers an accident that could potentially end his career. There is a catch, however: Tae-joon attends an all-boys high school so Jae-hee cuts her hair short and disguised herself as a boy to enter the school. There, she becomes Tae-joon's room mate.
When Jae-hee's older brother, Daniel Dawson (Julien Kang), comes to Korea, he finds out what his little sister is doing. Daniel soon decides to make Jae-hee leave the school. Jae-hee and Daniel argued in her and Tae-joon's room, and Tae-joon overhears their conversation, and discovers Jae-hee's secret.
Tae-joon soon realizes that the reason Jae-hee is attending their school is because of him. He decides to keep Jae-hee's secret to himself, in fear that she might leave the school. Soon his cold personality changes as he develops feelings for Jae-hee.
On 10 March 2011, SM Entertainment announced that they had acquired the rights to the manga, "Hana Kimi" and would be filming its Korean adaption. Representatives revealed, "The Korean version will have a total of 16 episodes that draw out stories of hopes and dreams. It’s a teenage comedy with a cute, but strong storyline and a slew of handsome cast members."
On 26 April, it was announced that Shinee's Choi Min-ho and f(x)'s Sulli are cast in the lead roles, and directed by Jeon Ki-sang who had previously directed the hit dramas My Girl and Boys Over Flowers. On 24 May 2012, it was further announced that the title is To The Beautiful You and written by Lee Young-chul, who wrote the High Kick! series. On 6 June, it was announced that Infinite's L was reviewing the offer to join, but would have to juggle overseas schedules with filming. After previous discussions for the secondary male lead role, Lee Hyun-woo was finally confirmed as Cha Eun-gyul.
The first script reading took place on 7 June at SBS Ilsan Production Center. On 9 July Minho, Sulli, Kwanghee and members of EXO were spotted taking part in a photoshoot for the drama. In preparation for his role as Tae-joon, Minho received personal training from coach Kim Tae-young, former national high jump athlete and a member of the Korea Association of Athletics Federations, for a month and a half. His personal record at the end of July was 175 cm.
Filming began at the beginning of July. In an interview with Vogue Girl Korea, Minho confirmed that the drama would broadcast on 15 August, rather than the initially scheduled 8 August. MokWon University was used to film the scenes in Genie Athletic High School, and Anmyeondo was used to film the summer vacation scenes. The first scene Choi Min-ho filmed was a high jump scene. For the high jump scene, 105 high-speed cameras were used to film in bullet time.
