at first i decided not to watch it but then i got really bored so i thought lets give it a try n i do not regret that
really nice drama the cast was really good
amazing actors
the f4 was the cutest in this version
i really liked the side story of the main lead's best friend which is actually the main reason i watched it to the end
the music read more was really good i really enjoyed the songs.....
what Jan Di did at the end to make jun pyos memories come back was the best scene in the whole drama but the best couple for me is ga eul n yi jung

this was the first version i watched n this was the best version of all
the story did started to drop at the middle but raised again near the end.....

I really enjoyed Boys Before Flowers it was my first Korean drama and I would recommend it. My main complaint is Jan Di she went from independent and feisty to clingy and weak and she wasn't very affectionate and seemed rather cold and uncaring but I blame this more on how her character was written rather than the actress who portrayed her. I loved the F4 boys they were well cast and read more the actors did a flawless job in portraying them.

If you like modern day Cinderella stories or Rich guy and poor girl type of conflicts, then these 2 dramas will be a good watch.

The male leads also in both series displayed a great transformation in their characters when they finally met their first love. They both have went through a tremendous length to protect the woman they love and solve hindrances brought about by the differences in social status with the woman they love.

poor girl meets rich guy in high school, and you can see amazing Lee Min Ho and some spoiled hotties

    It has been years.
    And the ending of this just gives off there'll-surely-be-a-next-season feels.
    And Korea rarely produce second seasons.
    What, do we have to wait for freaking 10 years to have this continued.. just like Winter Sonata?

    And I heard, LMH finds his character GJP embarrassing..
    So I guess that's the end of this?

    I only watched this series because Kim Hyung Joong was in it. After watching several episodes, I dropped it because I didn't find the storyline interesting and KHJ acting wasn't up to par. He needed more acting experience before taking this role. I watched the Taiwanese version, and I loved his character in that series.

    Not liking Lee Min Ho character at all and each episode is getting less and less interesting so far... hopefully that changes.

    Geum Jan Di's character and the way Goo Hye Soon portrayed her is what ruins this drama. Only the first 3 episodes are good. Jap version is much better, the girl is less annoying and has more common sense.

    this was my first drama of k-world and Lee min ho and i found it amazing to watch. The character and emotions of gu jun pyo shown in the series were like the boy experiencing his first love and after this series only i started to love gu jun pyo as it resembled me of my dream character i have ever imagined of. Ending was a bit abrupt but still it will always be one of my best shows ever.

    Yes, it has lotsss of cliches, but somehow I didn't get annoyed at all. I really enjoyed this drama, for the most parts. The characters are really lovable and grow on you, even the secundary ones. It's a must-watch for every k-drama fan, if only because it's so emblematic.
    The ending was a bit disappointing though, a little vague :(

    This drama has some sort of weird addiction/disillusionment effect on people where we /know/ it's ridiculous and corny and some parts are just undeniably /bad/, but we still can't help but love it and know a part of us will always love it, no matter how much shame we feel for admitting so.

    This was the first kdrama I ever watched and my drama standards have gotten better since, but there's nothing like Boys Over Flowers. There's nothing like listening to the OST and feeling everything you felt while watching it that first time. It revolutionized dramas. It's just classic.
