Hahahaha, I'd laugh so hard if they put in a cast like High School Musical.

Pretty much it would ruin it for me.
They are also making an American version of My Sassy Girl..
I'm kinda afraid of what it'll turn out to be.

Like I said.. I'm afraid. Hahaha.

hmmm for me...iono i think we should juss leave it as an asian drama..
i prefer it that way =]

They'd have to change a lot to fit the American style, and have to make it drag on a lot since US dramas usually don't only last 11 episodes, so they'd have to change the story a lot (unless they make it a miniseries). I say the US shouldn't remake any Asian movies/dramas since the cultures and ideas are so different. Most Americans don't see the original version, so they don't automatically say "this sucks," but I think shows made for Americans should be created by Americans.

American? I think American attitudes would just ruin the innocence of tsukishi's character.

i think it would be horrible. most of the jokes wouldnt really get across. especially when Doumyouji uses the wrong words/kanji for stuff. i cant really see an american version making it, unless they changed the characters...which would change the story..and then it wouldnt be Hana Yori Dango anyway.

Noooooooo! It'd be terrible ....
....just like how they manage to destroy brilliant Asian/JMovies it'd be a pale, harmoganised, sanitised and watery version of the story. Probably really corny just like Georgia-Jade said. *yuck*
Anyway, why would we need yet another version with "Meteor Garden", "HYD" and now the Korean version on the cards?


i so agree! lol XDD i mean...if they do make a US version it would most likely end up rubbish and they would make the other versions look bad lol XDD but can't wait for the korean version! wonder who r the casts~

Makino, Domyouji, Rui, Soujiro, Yuuki and Shigeru XD XD

Black American F4&Makino
Doumyji: Lil Romeo
Rui:( Corbin Bleu after he straightens his hair)
Soujioh &Mimkasa: Bow Wow & Omarrion
Makino: Keke Palmer
Storyline:
would almost remain the same. the only difference would be it would take place in Washington D.C.
They would attend Howard University(a very prestigous traditional black college).
Doumyji's family are still rich, his Dad's a prominent member of Congress.
Rui's rich his family own Capital Bank(it's actually one of the first black owned banks)
Soujiroh is rich too but his family owns a nation-wide chain of soul-food restaurants.
Mimkasa's family are the biggest drug dealers in the city, but because they donate alot of money to Congress they are considered apart of the black elite.
Makino is a project chick on scholarship.
Doumyji's name would be: Deonte Taylor
Rui= Raheem Harris
Soujiroh= Stacy Adams
Mimkasa= Marquis Washington
Makino= Mercedes Thompson
