Boys Before Flowers: American F4

Who doesn’t love “Boys Over Flowers”? Which Asian isn’t a fan of the F4? Taiwanese? Japanese? Korean? And now… American F4!
My favorite version of “Boys Over Flowers” is the Japanese one ~ Hana Yori Dango. I was a bit skeptical at first since I thought that Matsumoto Jun isn’t good looking enough for the lead role, but the acting ~ he personified “Tsukasa”. Inoue Mou is “cute” yet strong as Makino. I think the Korean F4 is the most good-looking bunch of all the remakes by far, but “Hana Yori Dango” is the best in terms of acting, story and production ;p
The American F4 casts relatively unknowns in Hollywood, but who knows what could happen when the series starts? I read that “Boys Before Flowers” is meant as a web series. So who are these ‘unknowns’?

I think I’ll try to see the preview… if the first 15 minutes entertains I might try to finish the episode ;p


  1. I have to agree with you Ms. Betchay, the japanese version Hana Yori Dango is my most favorite among the three and i just love Jun Matsumoto and Shun Oguri! I even named my dogs Rui and Makino, hehe. 🙂

  2. I started watching Korean Boys Over Flowers but I gave up in the first episode. But so many people have told me it’s great that I wonder if I should give it another try.

  3. LOL isnt boys over flowers supposed to be about pretty boys….that napoleon guy looks like someone you would find in a “to catch a predator” episode lol
