Boys Over Flowers (2009)

It has kinda he same plot with a poor girl and a rich guy falling for each other and the family coming in between the two of them. This drama is definitely much better that The Heirs since it's got a more concrete plot and less loopholes in the story.

The music i gong to keep you hooked and the story will make you smile and laugh and cry and sigh and get angry and just feel a lot of things.

It's a highly recommended series.
The personalities of the characters are similar in these dramas. Also the love triangle between the three main characters is the same. I've watched both of these and really enjoyed them.

Want to know where such a cute story came from? Hana Yori Dango is the original live action adaptation of the manga written by Kamio Yoko. It may be slightly older, but this Japanese predecessor has everything you loved about the Korean version, mixed in with it's own charm.

Both dramas have the same silly, sweet and funny feel with a charming female lead.
Also, Kim Hyun Joong (Yoon Ji Hoo in Boys Over Flowers) is the male lead in Playful Kiss. His character (Baek Seung Jo) is different yet somehow still similar to Yoon Ji Hoo. So, if you liked him in Boys Over Flowers, you'll probably like him in Playful Kiss as well!

Same storyline, great chemistry. It's really just a Chinese remake of Boys Over Flowers.

This has the whole reverse harem thing going for it. Plus, I think a lot of the cute scenes were homages to Boys Over Flowers. This drama gave me Second and Third Lead syndrome! But in the end I truly believed in the OTP.

Both dramas have similar stories about Flower boys and a poor girl. I think "Moon river" is better than BOF.

There are somewhat F4 in Goong, and they have a similar feeling.

Rich Men and a poor women. One talks more about the fancy lifestyles about the rich than the other but both main leads are peculiar and have interesting personalities. The second lead tends to have some air of mystery, but are good guys in the end. Second female lead in rich man poor woman is similar to one of the girls that become interested in Jun Pyo as well.

Jeon Ki Sang directed both dramas so if you like one you will probably enjoy the other one as well.

If you like the cheesy and cute type of drama this one is right in your aisle. Super cute from start to finish. 10/10 in my opinion of course.

they are both about students. idk about you but i like watching dramas about school life better than a drama about a 30 year old. i can relate to them better

The two male leads have a thing for the Main female lead. However the Female lead has someone in her heart.
Just like boys for flowers the love triangle exists.

It s a mix of boys over flowers and the parent story Goong.
