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!

I personally don't understand why people are so critical? This drama is something really special. Despite the fact, that it is a numerous interpretation of 'Boys over flowers', it remains one of the best among the others. From the first episodes I became fascinated by this drama: actors, plot, music - everithing was perfect. It was my first Chinese drama, and I can't compare it with other Chinese creations, however, the first read more impression was completely positive. The new ideas in the plot make this drama unique, create 'new waves' and I even can't tell, that it is only a version of something, it is an independent drama. The acting is on the high level. Actors did great job. It was truelly sensitive and gripping. Despite the number of episodes, you move quickly throug them and I can't say, that there were some needless and boring moments. All in all, it IS a masterpiece, GREAT JOB!

The Original. The Best. The ONLY. Nothing is superior to this version. Nothing.

The Kdrama (Boys of Over Flowers), the TWdrama (Meteor Garden), the Dizilier (Waiting for the Sun or Gunesin Kizlari) are copies of this version of Hana Yori Dango.

Yes, one and all. This version was so famous all over Asia it made it's way to Turkey; ie the Dizilier. Japan did that. Not Korea. Therefore, the manga and this Jdorama is something to take into consideration. It has two parts and a movie. One of the greatest and most successful manga-anime to live action Japan has made.

I came here for Zhang Han. Find out why you came here...it might be for the pairings or for Zhang or out of boredom. But if you've loved HYD...you might like this one. Personally, I'm only loyal to HYD.

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

    I seem to find a huge gap in the story between episode 19 to 20 but my files don't seem to be wrong as I looked on streaming sites and it is the same thing.
    Does someone know if I'm loosing on something or is the story just ok that way? :S

    I quite enjoyed it. It was F4 with somehow a different story? I just thought I was following a different style of Meteor Garden/Hanadan/BOF. And out of all the versions, they are the youngest, I mean the youngest looking actors and actresses. I feel like I was watching a High School love story, but nevertheless, quite, a little bit, I enjoyed it.

    Finally continued to watch it and finished it after I dropped it so many years ago.....do not get me wrong I loved the story and it was interesting to see another version of Boys Before Flowers :) However it was too long and draggy! Probably I will not see season 2.....do not know if it is worth to watch or not, if you feel like you want to watch it go ahead :)

    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

      Many thanks for the lead but sadly here in Australia we have many of the Viki channels blocked :(

      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.
