Sadly, I’m not a hardcore HYD fan, since I haven’t read the series…I read the last five chapters, but I doubt that counts for anything. But that’s besides the point. This is probably gonna be a rant about how horrible I think BOF is. There’s probably gonna be a billion fangirls who want to cut me into little pieces for saying that, but I don’t give a damn ’bout them. Haters gonna hate! Anyway! Hana Yori Dango AKA Boys Over Flowers is a live action drama…based on this super duper popular Shoujo 花より男子. There’s 5 different dramas for this story, but I’ll only be talking about HYD (Japanese) and BOF (Korean).
So HYD is probably one of my favorite series. Why? Cuz the cast is amazing. The two main characters, played by (Inoue Mao and Jun Matsumoto) have great chemistry and you actually get to see how their relationship develop. And as for the rest of the F4 gang, they all play some role throughout the series, well…except for Akira, poor guy has barely any major stuff. Point is, the whole series focuses on the development of the unexpected couple, and the shit they all have to go through. Character development!…I think that’s right. Well anyway, you actually end up developing some kind of “connection” to the characters, that you might even start crying! If you happen to like it, there’s also a second season and a movie. So go try it out.

So when I heard about a Korean version, I had very high expectations of it. And I was really disappointed. The two characters in this booger, are okay, really not that great. I found it obnoxious the way she said “Gu Jun Pyo”. This cast, just wasn’t that amazing…at all…not even good. Everything seemed way too dramatic, and the two main characters made a really weird couple. Like you barely saw their feelings develop, they absolutely had no chemistry. And the sad part is, the series seemed to focus more on the developing relationship of So Yi Jeong and Chu Ga Eul. They focused on it so much, they decided to do a CF! Good looking couple! But I mean this series was purely for eye candy. Sure it had some good parts, but it just lacked. Like there wasn’t even any comic relief. Very serious stuff.
I thought the CF was cute. So here it is!
