Hot guys, dramatic plot, heart wrenching love, and did I mention hot guys? It's not hard to see why Boys Over Flowers is number one of Mysoju's top dramas of all times!!!
Every episode seemed to be a script out of Days of Our Lives, but I admit, the beginning had me from when she gets out of her dad's car, or well, whatever you want to call it, to start her read more new life at the prestigious school right until the end. It’s a drama that keeps you hooked and I wish, to be honest, they had spread the stories out as it soon became OTT and every scene less realistic than the last. It was because of this I was unable to completely fall in love with the characters and rather viewed it as a story without sadly any personal connection.
Easily my favourite character was Ji Hoo and it almost seemed as if BOF writers were trifling with the idea that true love and the love you should spend the rest of your life with are not the same person. Which is quite a unique idea. Apparent from that, the drama is quite shallow with basic themes of morality versus money being thrown out the window with the lingering close ups of extreme wealth at every turn.
However, in all that, a great fun Saturday night watch – not that I would watch Asian dramas on a Saturday night, geesh – and make sure to pick your own flower to fall in love with

I really liked this Drama it was super cute and funny. I didn't really like how they made the main girl look though. She's pretty in the anime version of this and in the drama I was really disappointed. The story line didn't follow all the way through like the anime I definitely saw differences. But, other than that it was really good and something I would definitely watch again in the read more future. If you're into the cute lovey dovey Dramas then I would definitely recommend this to those. Anyways, I hope that more people will like this, and give it a chance, because I'm glad I did. :)

This drama's main lead is also Lee Min Ho. And this drama is also about a rich boy meeting a girl with charisma and eventually ending up loving her.
Both these shows are good for anyone that likes Romance and Comedy and want to see what happens after the two leads become a couple. Both as have actor Kim Hyun Joong.

    Just started watching this one, and I have now finished 2 episodes. I was kind of avoiding to start watching this because I thought I would get disapointed because this has been so popular and that oind of popular dramas tend to disapoint me pretty much always. But right now, even tho I don't wanna be the one of those who love these hit dramas over the other great not so popular ones, I like this so far. It seems a good solution to not expect anything, just watch without any thoughs and/or reading reviews. And I was prepared to Kim Hyun Joon's robotic-like acting so it's not that bad. He is just so gorgeous so maybe that'll make it up.

    I gave it an 8 mark. Not 10 because of Hye Sun's acting, the storyline was getting kind of depressing during the last episodes...

      There's no other way to describe such people, and the words were HUGE and EXTREMELY understatements for what kind of person they are...

    Only watched this once and plan on keeping it that way. it was such an emotional roller coaster ride that at times I wanted to just jump off. Great drama but i can't stand all the misunderstandings and unnecessary depressive moments. Still holds a soft spot in my heart though. OST never gets old, One of the best I've heard.
