The Korean version of Hana Yori Dango had seen immense success and popularity for the Taiwanese (2001) and Japanese version (2005) over the past few years. F4 had also become household names in Asia thanks to the drama and the “franchise” is being regarded as a star-making machine.

The Korean Hana Yori Dango is scheduled for broadcast early next year on KBS 2TV with fans in particular, very eager over who would be casted for the respective roles. In the latest situation, it was reported that there were many calls from fans that SS501 leader, Kim Hyun Joong should be casted.

According to someone from Group Eight, the production house in-charge of the drama, “We have discussed this with Kim Hyun Joong himself and his company but haven’t made the final decision yet.” DSP Entertainment expressed, “There’s too many things that we would have to do, like adjusting the schedules, so we haven’t decide on his appearance in the drama just yet”.

Why Hyun Joong then? The Group Eight official expressed, “We picked Hyun Joong based on his performance in MBC We Got Married with Hwang Bo and felt that he would be able to play the Rui character well.”

The producion company reiterated their stand, “We are not going to just cast idols in the drama. There are many criteria that we look into. As long as it fits our criteria and image of the character, we will try to discuss the possibility regardless of whether he/she is an idol star or not.”

I think he is a good choice if he eventually gets picked. Frankly, idol stars over those with acting ability are more likely to work for this drama than anything else. But what will happen to SS501 in Japan if he takes up the offer? What about We Got Married? No wonder, they can’t decide now.

SS501 member Kim Hyun Joong was casted as the F4 member Hanazawa Rui in the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango, which is scheduled to be broadcast via KBS 2TV in the first half of 2009. The Korean name for Rui has not been set yet.

This will be the third time the Japanese manga will be turned into a drama series. The first one was a Taiwanese version, which was aired in 2001, and the other was a Japanese one, which was broadcast in 2005.

According to an official from Group Eight, the production house in-charge of the drama, Kim Hyun Joong was selected to play Rui because he was deemed suited for the character. The decision was based from his performance in the MBC program “We’re Married,” where Kim Hyun Joong is being coupled with singer Hwangbo.

Meanwhile, at the moment, the 3 actors who will play the other members of F4 are yet to be finalized.

Agreed. Kim Jeong Hoon would've been a better choice. I'm biased though coz I think he's just cuter
