Of course I love the story b/c I have made it a point to watch all versions of this story. Cronologically this one is very different. The history of the characters is not the same as in the other versions. The acting (IMAO) is much better than the Japanese version, even though it is still kinda weak. The dorky laughing is what killed most of this for me. I was never a read more giggler and hate it when girls do that to act cute. It makes me sick. Watching this drama was almost like watching a Soap Opera here in America (really bad acting) only w/o the continuous relationship changes. I really hated the mother in this one. She was like pure evil in human form. How can a mother lie to her child and not feel guilt. I have an 11 yr old and there is nothing that she could ever do that would make me lie to her like that. I just don't understand her characters pov. She wants what is best for her son yet she does everything she can to hurt him b/c it is not what she wants him to do. As a parent u have to let ur children learn from their own mistakes, not force them to do as u want them to. That is not how they learn or grow. The fact that the father let her do these things make me really mad b/c he should have done something to stop his wife from being such a biatch. I mean really dude grow a pair and deal w/ ur psycho of a wife.



There is obviously a 2nd season to this, and I really want to finish out the story, but I may wait a while b/c this part took so long to get through. I just really hate to leave things unfinished. Which is y I will prolly go and watch the 2nd season of the Japanese version; even though I really hated it. Damn my inablity to leave things unfinished. I will suffer through it just b/c I can't leave the story like it is in my head. Yeah I even make myself finish crappy books too. Stupid OCD.

As a fan of Zhang Han, it has already been written in the stars that I would watch the drama that launched his career. It really made me wonder why this unofficial Chinese adaptation of Hana Yori Dango had such a low score here and also negative comments in different blogs. As I watched every episode of the drama, it also made me wonder how it became an unofficial adaptation when it read more followed the basic elements of the original story. Although I completely agree with others when they said that this was more like an adaptation of Meteor Garden compared to Hana Yori Dango. So we can basically call this an adaptception (I hope you'd get what I was trying to say here ;). I have also long accepted the fact that I would definitely come to love any version of Hana Yori Dango because I'm just so in love with the story no matter how cliche it is already now. I can honestly say that the first few episodes were quite boring and ridiculous (in terms of acting maybe) and definitely different from all HYD adaptations. However, one must be patient in watching in order to enjoy it fully. One major thing that made me love this drama was the chemistry of our main leads, Chu Yu Xun and Murong Yun Hai. No wonder Zhang Han and Zheng Shuang ended up dating in real life! In terms of acting, Zhang Han playing the Domyouji character really made my fangirl heart jump out of happiness. I believe he played it so well next to Jerry Yan's Dao Ming Si. I also can't believe that Zheng Shuang was just around 18 or maybe even younger when she acted in this drama and she was just really adorable and fierce at the same time. The only thing that I could complain about her was that she was just too pretty to play the Makino character but this is hardly even a complaint. I have always been a fan of Hanazawa Rui (both in MG and HYD) but the one here really disappointed me in terms of acting and looks (sorry for being shallow!) but he just grew on me as I continued watching. I also found the other F4 members really cute and they actually had decent storylines. I gave the music section a perfect score because I really love the OSTs that I'm even listening to them now as I type this. My favorite ones are Love's Waltz, Let Me Sing A Song For You, I Want to Soar, etc and most of them were sang by the cast members! It was a chance for me to actually listen to their real voices as they were all dubbed in this drama. I gave a low score to the rewatch value because I feel that it would be dragging to rewatch everything all over again. I would also be unfair and say that nothing can beat the rewatch value of Meteor Garden which is why I gave such a low score. My apologies for writing such a long review but it only means that I'm very passionate because I believe that more people should give this drama a chance. A bit of chance that would entail just enjoying the drama alone and forgetting the other adaptations even just for awhile!

    Seriously how manyvesions of this can we watch the oringinal Meteor Garden was the best I feel all the make overs are just a I imitation . Read that this versions producer claim it's not plagerism but it definetly is. This one only starts different and there is a crush on music teacher instead of model. However I was amazed that bullying in schools is the same every where.

    Unpopular opinion maybe, but I'm enjoying this one much more than the others (MG, BOF, and the original HYD). After watching the others and dropping two (MG and HYD - while I managed to stick out BOF only for the romance between Yi Jung and Ga Eul), watching yet another remake was the last thing on my mind. But on a whim, I decided to watch it today.

    I'm 12 episodes in, and find it to be quite a bearable watch! At 45 minutes per episode, I find each one to pass by pretty quickly. From the past dramas I've grown to hate the F4 from the get-go, but I like them much more in this drama. Except for Rui (Lei).. haha. Which is good, because it got me to really enjoy the romance between the two main characters. :| Zheng Shuang and Zhang Han make an adorable couple and I'm enjoying their cute moments a lot more than between Barbie and Jerry; Hye Sun and Min Ho; and Mao and Jun. Also, for once, none of the characters are super malicious (quite the opposite). If anything, this is a drama to watch if you don't feel like dealing with those types of characters.

    Of the four remakes I know of, this strays most from the original HYD. It's definitely not a bad thing; rather, it's quite refreshing. So far..!

    That's my second chinese drama and I'm really close to state that Chinese can't make dramas. It's the worst version of Hana yori dango (I love the plot). They've change so many. The scenes are romantically oooover done which is nothing more as ridiculous. And it's annoying that they made his mother not as bad as she should be, and his father is "the head of the family", when he says "stop it" the-evil-mother becomes meek. When the company has problems evil-mother becomes weak and here again the knight in shining armor(her husband) is coming back to take care of the business, even if he was traveling past few years. Yuck! Most of the subplots are deadly boring or irritating - as her uncle.
    Miss Zheng Shuang is so pretty, has perfect legs and her face sometimes looks like a doll's;D and that's bright side of this series:P Second one could be one nice song, but I'm not sure...

    So, I recently started watching this drama again now that I've found decent subtitles. One thing I keep finding funny is how Yu Hai and Yu Xun are always running away from people or after venting their frustration. Like literally running full speed! Reminds me of what my 3 yr old does when she's upset with us haha. I don't know why, but it's such of overraction it makes me laugh.

      It was a fan channel on Viki. I think all episodes are subbed 95-100% English

      Ah I'm sorry :-( I didn't even look to see where you were from. I hope you can find one soon. It took me a really long time to find something over here that was subbed. I could only find bits and pieces for quite a while.

      Try YouTube when you can't find anywhere else Vikki has restrictions on fan subbed . Drama fever is also good as well

    For some reason, I like this one a lot better than the other boys over flowers. But, it seemed draggy the longer and farther you got into it.

    I enjoyed this drama series but it should have had a better ending because the 2nd series wasn't good at all.

      This show is the Chinese version of Boys Over Flowers and Meteor Garden is the Taiwanese version. They are both based on the same original manga series so they are related and share the same roots but they are different.

    was watching this on viki, first half was pretty good, but then the plot started jumping all over the place. Anyway it's only subbed halfway through episode 31. If anyone knows where it's fully subbed let me know.
