Taiwan drama series Skip Beat is now showing on 8TV on every Saturday from 6.:30pm since 26 May 2012 which i'm not aware. 
Was watching the tv series yesterday... find it funny! hehe... 

High school graduate Gong Xi gives up her chances for university in order to support her childhood friend and romantic goal, Bu Po Shang, in his pop idol career. Upon arriving in Taipei, Gong Xi starts working on multiple jobs in order to support Bu Po Shang, whose popularity quickly rises, eventually becoming one of the top idols in Taiwan. One day, Gong Xi catches Bu Po Shang flirting with his manager, and learns that he only used her so she can help him with his living expenses. Heart-broken and betrayed, Gong Xi vows to get revenge by becoming a bigger star than him. Gong Xi auditions for L.M.E., Bu Po Shang's rival talent agency, and joins L.M.E.'s new-found department "Love Me". At L.M.E., Gong Xi meets famous actor Dun Helian, who eventually falls in love with her.

Main Characters:
* Ivy Chen as Gong Xi (宮囍), based on the manga character Kyoko Mogami:
A bright and intelligent high school graduate who gives up her chances for university to support her childhood friend and love interest, Bu Po Shang, in his pop idol career. She later finds out that Bu Po Shang only used her for his own selfish reasons and had no intentions to spend the rest of his life with her. Devastated and vengeful, Gong Xi vows that she will exact revenge. Bu Po Shang tells her that the only way to do this is to join the entertainment industry and defeat him. Gong Xi immediately auditions for L.M.E., Bu Po Shang's rival talent agency, and is accepted into the company's new-found department, Love Me (Chinese: 愛我吧部).

* Siwon (voiced by Kunda) as Dun Helian (敦賀蓮), based on the manga character Ren Tsuruga:
A famous young actor who takes his profession very seriously. He is one of the biggest stars in Taiwan and is under the same talent agency as Gong Xi. Although he maintains a perfect public image, he initially shows signs of distaste towards Gong Xi, and is disgusted by her reasons for joining the show business. However, he soon realizes Gong Xi's talent in acting and begins to support her endeavors. He eventually falls in love with Gong Xi, but she is too concentrated on her motives to notice his pursuits.

* Donghae as Bu Po Shang (不破尚; lit. "Unbreakable Shang"), based on the manga character Shō Fuwa:
Born Shang Jieyong (尚界勇), Bu Po Shang is Gong Xi's childhood friend and love interest. Although egotistical, arrogant, and cocky, he is an extremely talented musician. Fully aware of Gong Xi's romantic feelings for him, he successfully convinces Gong Xi to travel with him to Taipei to support him financially while he focuses on developing his singing career. He ruthlessly deserts Gong Xi after becoming famous, and tells her that she should join the entertainment industry if she wants revenge. Upon seeing Gong Xi's transformation, Bu Po Shang realizes that he had more feelings for her than he originally thought. He holds great animosity towards Dun Helian because of his popularity and his close relationship with Gong Xi.
