This was the first drama I have seen and it's absolutely marvellous. :) The story is focusing on each character in part, although the main ones are Jan Di and Jun Pyo who made a very beautiful couple, worth observing until the end of the show. Even though the love that brings them together has many twists it does succeed in overcoming all the problems, obstacles that got into their way.
It's read more about meeting one's soulmate and if you're destined to stay with him or her, about learning not to make difference between the people because of their social class, about the most powerful friendship between four boys and a girl who always stood up for what's right to do! ;)
Due to this drama I've become so interested in korean dramas and I started to watch more of them, as well as in South Korea and its language. :p
Who wants to laugh, cry, be surprised, get angry, identify with the characters MUST see this drama. It is a good way to relax and also discover the true meaning of friendship, love and family and feel the warmth of having all of these! :)
Think positive and you'll win the battle against the roughness and hardhips of life! ;)

Boys over flowers is like the "must see" in k drama world. This is probably the most famous k drama ever, and the first k drama for a lot of people, and that's why we -somehow- love this drama although it isn't actually a good one.

The story is just a big WTF! to me, really... and it doesn't always make sense. But incredibly it is still a catchy story lol, this read more is what BOF is, it somehow hooks you up, but deep inside of you, you know that what you're watching is not good at all.

The acting is just BLEH! although I love Lee Min Ho and now is one of my favorite actors, in BOF he wasn't as good as he is now... it wasn't a terrible acting but it wasn't a good one either... Same for Koo Hye Sun, she's good at dramatic scenes and crying and suffering but she lacks emotion in other scenes like kisses or funny moments and etc...

F4: oh boy! the eyecandy in this story has a 10/10 these four Asian boys doing whatever they want with your feelings and looking hot while they're destroying your heart haha it's just asdfghjk...

And probably what makes this drama a "must see" and a famous one is Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong) BOF probably has the worst and saddest second lead syndrome ever! REALLY... even if you don't ship JanDi with JiHoo the drama still makes you feel terribly sad about JiHoo's life (a terrible and lonely one) omg! my heart still aches when I remember...

Despite of all that BOF is a very rewatchable story... if you want to cheer up, or cry like crazy or just remember or see hot Asian boys gathered in one drama, just go to BOF. :)

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

    Well, now that I've completed the whole series and watched all the episodes.. Was this worth of all the hype? For me, not necessarily. Kinda basic romcom with many cliches but still managaed to entertain me and made me cry. Nothing that special and for me, KHJ's robotic-like acting is actually attractive in a some weird way. And I just can't get over him (despite alk the scandals of his personal life), he is just so good looking. After all, I liked this drama but it is not the best I've seen.

    Does this make Lee Min Ho and So Ji Sub brothers?

    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.
