Geum Jan-Di (Hye-seon Ku) is a girl from a poor family but has an unrivaled sense of optimism and drive and is by chance admitted to a prestigious private high school.
There she meets the infamous group of four astonishingly good looking and rich boys who are known as F4.
Because of the great chemistry between lee min ho and ku hye sun in this drama I seriously wanted both of them to end up together in real life as well. I wish they would do an alternate ending where she choose yun ji-hu. i know it's based on an anime so the story was a bit silly and unrealistic.
Their love story moves from Seoul to New Caledonia to Macau. Since I've watched this series for over fifteen times, I had to make a review and share my opinion. I remember getting it from a friend and it was the first Korean thing that I watched so I wasn't exactly familiar with their culture, tradition and the ways things worked in Korea. Then, after a few months, I thought of giving it a try and patiently watched the whole series, Boys Over Flowers and boy was I wrong and ignorant! Geum Jan Di's never-backing down attitude and cheerfulness to Gu Jun Pyo's tough yet warm heart, everything summed it up. I am a fan and I already watch it for the ninth time.
Not only the major but the minor characters were so good, I couldn't take my eyes off. So to anyone new thinking if they should watch it or not, go ahead and watch it. I really like the drama but I hope that they will continue it even if it just a movie.
KR version plot is too good to but not quite enough for me.
Let's continue , Taiwanese Version (Meteor Garden) was great too , and the most version I like, I watch it many times, this version was too intense and too dramatic .
i have watched jdrama since late 90s and after dicovering manga., i can say that only at certain point such adaptation is acceptable.
the rest is either over acting, nonsense without creativity and dull.
I may have watched maybe 50 of them now, but nothing gave me the feels like bof.
I guess the reason I watched so many I'd just because that I desperately wanted to find a story similar to that.
Bof is all about 3 things that have reached an extend. The love which gu jun pyo has for jandi is so amazing. I can comfortably say this is my best teen k series. Started out pretty interesting funny but I crawled to the end.
He loves her too much to the extent that he can't live without her. It just ended up going around in circles (especially the main couple) and LMH and Jan Di had NO CHEMISTRY.
Although he has everything anyone ever wants, the only thing he needs is jandi. Overall it's not a good drama at all but it's easy to get caught up in the glitz and hype.
