    Hana Yori Dango Drama Discussion

    Story
    Hana yori Dango evolves around a story about a poor girl who enters into an elite high school where she meet a group of 4 young powerful rich boys in that school, and from then on she encounters various of problems and also start a piquant spring love story. This is based on a really popular manga series with the same title as well.

    Drama Info

    Japanese version

    This drama series has 2 seasons. First season was aired in 2005 (9 episodes) and the 2nd season was aired early this year in 2007 (11+1 epsiodes). Of course there is more hype over the 2nd season with the popular Jap star Matsumoto Jun, from pop group Arashi to appear as Doumyouji Tsukasa, and it also features cool songs from Utaka Hikaru and Arashi too.

    Taiwanese Version



    The taiwanese version is called "Meteor Garden" or Li Xing Hua yuan (流星花園) which was aired in 2001. It was very popular as well as it casts these 4 boys who become known as F4 for their singing.

    Korean Version

    "Boys over Flowers" 꽃보다 남자 the direct translation(?) is the latest addition to this ever popular shoujo series.
    Aired in Jan 2009 and ended in Mar 2009.

    =====================================

    I have only seen the taiwanese version for this and only the first few episodes. However, i'm seriously thinking of watching the HYD season 2 mainly because of Matsumoto Jun! Now now, have any of you seen any of these versions yet, and if yes, what do you like about it or what make you watch it?

    I've watched HYD jap version. It's really good season 2 has more drama than season 1. The drama storyline is wayyyyy better than the anime + manga. And Jun who played Domyjouji was so hot! but I think Makino suffered more in the drama but the ending was good, pretty much wraps up the story unlike the anime.

    I've watched both Meteor Garden and Hana Yori Dango, and I think the latter is better. Don't watch Season 2 of the former, it's all crap.

    I've seen the japanese version, both season 1 and season 2. I enjoyed this drama a lot. People who have read the manga, would really enjoy this drama in my opinion. It has good story and the cast is good. Oh yeah, the soundtrack is good too, especially Flavor of Life by Utada Hikaru. Definitely 5 star material for me.

    @Nami- I think there's a mistake in your first post, Matsumoto Jun plays Doumyouji Tsukasa. Doumyouji Tsubaki is played by Nanako Matsushima.

    It was announced that a movie of Hana Yori Dango, using the same cast as the tv drama, will be coming out in theatres in Japan around summer 2008. It is said that it will be the true "Final" to the series.

    Re: Hana Yori Dango Drama Discussion

    @Kawaii chan - So I guess you really like the Jap version more?^^ Are the effects better in the Japanese version? I seen the taiwanese version and at some point, it just seem too slapslick to me - weird kind of humour, but when I saw a few shots of the Jap version, they seems much more sophisticated. Somehow jap dramas tend to make things look so much beautiful. and yeah!! Looking forward to see it in the cinema (one day)

    Re: Hana Yori Dango Drama Discussion

    Agree with you there..

    I saw Meteor Garden and liked it at first since it had a good start and I think the cast for the F4 was, well physically similar to the anime.. but the later parts of the story really drag, especially the second season... so boring that I didn't bother following anymore...

    For HYD, one of the best drama I've seen and that I really enjoyed till the end of the seasons. I like the plot, the cast and the osts. It's highly recomendable..
    And about the movie, I can't wait to see the true final, eventhough the ending in the series is enough for me.

    WOW OMG are you serious??!?!!!?! I can't wait! I never heard about anything other than just the drama series. I've watched the Japanese HYD 1 and 2 and I absolutely loved it. I only read the manga after that and realised it was a bit different, but I love the drama. Well I'm a big Matsumoto Jun fan and also Oguri Shun is HOT!!! But wow u have to let us know when it comes out, some time in 2008 ??

    from the comments,I see people seem sceptical about if there is a movie of HyD, here is the official web and an english web about it. For the moment the movie is said to come out in japanese theatres June 28.

    Ah, it's finally official! It's not that we are skeptical but initially it was just rumours flying around and u hardly see drama series that have a movie continuation rite?
