yay!! i love Han Chae Young. i'm glad she's
in this drama. woot!

i have a question, since the title is like
"Boys Over Flowers" does it technically mean
"bros over hoes". hah for some reason it
keeps telling me that it does mean that. lol.
anywho sorry for the off topic question. =D
no need to answer. lol


Actually, "Boys Over Flowers" is a play on the Japanese saying "dumplings before flowers", which means that dumplings (food - essential) is more important than flowers (not essential), ie you should give priority to the essential things in life like food and not the pretty, decorative things like flowers.

The title "Hana Yori Dango" written in kanji literally means "dumplings (dango) before flowers (hana)" but the furigana over the kanji for "dango" shows that the word should be read as "danshi" which means "boys" and from there you get "boys over flowers". So basically, the title is saying that boys are as essential as food and should be given priority!

The cast for the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango has been confirmed. I know there are plenty of the same topic all over the forums but I don't think anyone of them has been clear about casting yet so I thought I'd give it a shot and clear up some confusion.

Makino Tsukushi/Shan Cai

Played by: Koo Hye Sun (age 24, recently seen in Strongest Chil Woo)



Her role was played by Inoue Mao (JP version) and Barbie Xu (TW version).

In the Korean version, Makino will be called Yeon Woo.


Doumyoji Tsukasa/Dao Ming Si

Played by: Lee Min Ho (age 21, recently seen in I Am Sam )



His role was played by Matsumoto Jun (JP version) and Jerry Yan (TW version).

In the Korean version, Doumyoji will be called Goo Joon Pyo.



Hanazawa Rui/Hua Ze Lei

Played by: Kim Hyun Joong (age 22, recently seen in Spotlight (cameo) , member of SS501)



His role was played by Oguri Shun (JP version) and Vic Zhou (TW version).

In the Korean version, Rui will be called Yoon Ji Hoo.


Nishikado Soujiro/Mei Zuo

Played by: Kim Bum (age 19, recently seen in East of Eden)



His role was played by Matsuda Shota (JP version) and Vaness Wu (TW version).

In the Korean version, Soujiro will be called So Yi Jung.


Mimasaka Akira/Xi Men

Played by: Kim Joon (age 23, member of T-Max)



His role was played by Tsuyoshi Abe (JP version) and Ken Zhu (TW version).

In the Korean version, Akira will be called Song Woo Bin.


Also, DramaWiki shows the following castings:

Han Go Eun as Doumyoji Tsubaki (sister of Tsukasa):



Han Chae Young as Toudou Shizuka (Hanazawa Rui's love interest):



Kang Nam Gil as Makino Haruo (Tsukushi's father):



I don't know how precise this information is or if it has been confirmed by the production company yet!

The show will be called 꽃보다 남자 / Boys Before Flowers and is scheduled to start in December 2008, broadcast by KBS. At the moment, DramaWiki shows 24 episodes.

It will be a long wait until December!


I really thought that Mimasaka Akira was Mei Zhou in TW version

while...

Nishikado Sojirou was Xi Men...

it kinda makes sense because Both Sojirou and Xi Men had the episode with Yuki/Xiao Yu about the building thingy ...


and I really can't forget that in Meteor Rain ... Xi Men's name was SIEMEN that reflected on the billboard coz it's sounds like his name while Soujirou is Jirou (it's in jap characters though)

just saying...hehehehehe


LOL! My mistake, I've changed it. Meteor Garden was so bloody long that my attention drifted away after the first ten episodes or so, so I couldn't really remember who was meant to be whom! Anyway, thanks for letting me know.




hahaha...you're welcome!

yeah it was soooo long but hey I was addicted to it..naturally...because it was my first ever asian drama series!!!! hahahahaha


anyway...I LOVE HAN CHAE YOUNG!!!!!!!! she really fits Shizuka's role well! weeeeeeeeee
