    The fist one apparently appears acceptable since "seem" is followed by ever-used preposition "to".

    You look/appear/seem busy  (. to be busy).

    Or, You look to be busy. You look busy.

    Thanks.

    The first is grammatically correct. The second sentence is wrong.

    You seem to be busy now. Or

    You look like you're busy now.

    But not your way.

    "You seem to be busy now" is correct. The other version would be "You look like you are busy now". That version is a bit less formal and would be often heard in speech. The start "You look like....." could never be followed by "...to be...".

    Seem.  You could say "look to be busy" but not look like to be

    The first sentence reads better. The second would work if rewritten to: “You look like you’re busy now.”

    The first one is OK

    The second one should be .. You look like you're busy now.

    The first one is correct, the second doesn't make sense to me.
