Boys Before Flowers’ Gets Overseas Export Even Before Broadcast
The highly anticipated KBS drama “Boys Before Flowers“, largely known as the Korean version of the popular “Hana Yori Dango”, has already been exported to Japan and various Asian countries before it even begins its broadcast in South Korea.

“Boys Before Flowers” will premiere on the 5th of January through KBS2TV, clashing directly with TV ratings champion “East of Eden” and Han Hye Jin’s “Terroir“. But without taking considerations its quality and TV ratings, overseas companies in Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Philippines have already snatched up the distribution and broadcast rights. The rights in Japan has been bought over by Japan’s SPO Entertainment and is scheduled to air in Japan sometime in the 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2009.

Hana Yori Dango first came out as a manga in Japan between 1992 to 2004. It was later turned into an anime between 1996 to 1997 by ASAHI TV station but the live action version (drama) was produced by Taiwan and it became an instant hit. The Japanese drama version was subsequently produced in 2005 with the final chapter broadcast in early 2007.

So how will the Korean version starring Goo Hye Sun, Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum and Kim Joon fare? Stay tune for tomorrow’s premiere of “Boys Before Flowers”. (Sounds like I’m promoting for KBS lol)

KBS Banking On Boys Before Flowers To Make An Impact

After months of hype followed by expectation, the Korean version of popular Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango, Boys Before Flowers finally makes its debut tonight on KBS2TV. The story revolves around an average girl, Geum Jandi (Goo Hye Sun) who makes her way into a prestigious school by chance and her encounters with the school’s notorious F4 following a chance meeting.

The Korean version of Hana Yori Dango will seek to fill in the gaps that had been missing in the original manga and give a detailed account of exactly how Jandi made her way into the prestigious school. The focus of the first episode which will be shown tonight will be what was mentioned earlier in this article.

Goo Hye Sun had a really hard time filming the below-mentioned scene (see photo below). Besides being doused with vercimilli, eggs from F4 supporters and having to change 10 outfits (for different takes), she also developed a serious bout of flu from the long filming hours of this particular scene.


KBS is banking heavily on this drama to turn the tables on the competing dramas (MBC East of Eden, SBS Terroir) from the other tv stations in terms of ratings, having been on the losing end for nearly a year. But it’s certainly not going to be easy, having to go against the two who have an established viewership base already. Another thing to look out for is whether the Korean version can equal or surpass the Taiwanese and Japanese versions.

It’s going to be a long-shot with the ratings. But there will be many teen and overseas viewers for this definitely. Will this be a Goong or a Goong S? Everything will be revealed tonight (reviews) and tomorrow (ratings).

KBS Boys Before Flowers Makes Desired Impact on Opening

Boys Before Flowers certainly did not disappoint as it delighted KBS authorities with a strong showing of 14.3% for its opening episode last night.

KBS had been on the losing end in the Mon-Tue timeslot against competing dramas from SBS and MBC for almost 2 years now and it had been banking on Boys Before Flowers to reverse the situation. And it certainly did not disappoint as they finally succeeded on their 13th attempt, coming close to the opening episode rating of 14.6% set by Hello Miss on 19th March, 2007.

But what was the first impression after the first episode? “Although not close to the original, but it was passable” was the general remark given by those who were familar with the manga. Granted that most of the acting were quite stiff but its only the beginning so it should be better as we go along.

Cast members featured on Boys Before Flowers OST


No point in deliberately hiring idol stars and then not making use of their pop-music backgrounds, right?

Two of F4 members in the new drama Boys Before Flowers got their starts in kpop, and will be featured on the drama’s soundtrack. Kim Hyun-joong (”Yoon Ji-hoo”) is a singer for the boy band SS501, while Kim Joon has a slightly lower profile as a member of the group T-Max, who sings the title song “Paradise.”

Kim Hyun-joong and SS501 contribute a track called “Because I’m Dumb.” The OST also features kpop groups Shinee, Someday, Seo Jin-young, Tree Bicycle, and Ashily (familiar names from director Jeon’s previous dramas My Girl and Witch Amusement).

01. Paradise (flower boys OST Main theme) - T-Max
02. I'm stupid - SS501
03. Do you know - Someday
04. Stand By Me - SHINee
05. Lucky - Ashily
06. Starlight tears - Kim Yu Kyung
07. A little - Seo Ji Young
08. One More Time - tree bicycles
09. I Know (Saxophone Instrument) - Lee Jung Sik
10. Opening Title (Paradise intro) - T-Max

Han Chae Young Will Depart With a Kiss Scene


The cameo appearance of Han Chae Young last week has no doubt give “Boys Before Flowers” a boost, ratings wise and performance wise, with many viewers acknowledging Han Chae Young to be best portrayal of Shizuka out of the three (Taiwan, Japan, South Korea). But tonight, Han Chae Young will leave the drama and end her cameo role with a kiss scene with Kim Hyun Joong.

In episode 3 to be aired tonight, Min Seo Hyun (Han Chae Young) will announce her independence from her family during her birthday party. This announcement not only indicates the maturity of Min Seo Hyun, but also means that she who decides to leave Korea, will have to breakup with Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong).

Despite the rest of the F4 and Geun Jandi (Goo Hye Sun) being worried for Ji Hoo, Ji Hoo appears to be rather calm on the surface. However, he now bears a grudge against Seo Hyun in his heart. He asks Seo Hyun what does he really mean to her. Seo Hyun said: “If there is someone here who I’m unable to abandon, that person is you.”

The climax of tonight’s episode is probably the kiss scene between Han Chae Young and Kim Hyun Joong after the conversation. After the successful completion of the scene, Han Chae Young said: “Playing a cameo role in ‘Boys Before Flowers’ is an interesting experience to me. I hope the viewership will be able to soar to a new high in the future.”

As for Kim Hyun Joong, he expressed: “It takes a lot of courage to film a kiss scene with Han Chae Young. I have no idea how I did for the kiss scene, so I will have to watch the episode to find out.”

“Boys Before Flowers” achieved a 17.6% TV rating on just episode 2 last week. Will the kiss scene help push it past the 20% mark tonight?
