01/21 [news] Production Representative for ‘Boys Over Flowers’ “100% Satisfied With Kim HyunJoong’s Acting”

Production team Group Eight for KBS 2TV ‘Boys Over Flowers’, representative Song ByungJoon has only praises for SS501 member Kim HyunJoong, who newly turned into an actor.

Representative Song ByungJoon said to Starnews on a recent interview “We are 100% satisfied with Kim HyunJoong’s acting.” Representative Song continued “The first and foremost condition for the casting of ‘Boys over flowers’ is appearance, second is their existing image and character. And then the acting skills, we set our priorities for the casting like that. For the case of Kim HyunJoong, he possesses both good appearance and image.”

He added “Kim HyunJoong’s appearance is close to the original character, and his 4th dimensional image in MBC ‘We Got Married’ is exactly the same as the drama character.”

Representative praises “Frankly speaking, we were worried about his acting. He was unskilled during the first practice session, but he really improved very fast. Despite being his first-time acting through this drama, he is acting well. He has made a lot of efforts in acting. With these, he is praiseworthy.”

Like what representative Song ByungJoon said, Kim HyunJoong has been taking personal acting lessons after being casted for the drama and has devoted himself into acting. The more times Kim HyunJoong does, the more natural his acting is and resulted in good appraisals.

‘Boys over flowers’ has been rated over 20% and is currently being broadcast.

Kim Joon in a fender bender

On the same day as his castmate Kim Hyun-joong’s small traffic collision, actor Kim Joon (”Woo-bin” of Boys Before Flowers) was also in a minor car accident.

Kim Joon’s incident actually occurred first but was reported later; it took place in Seoul on the morning of January 22. The other vehicle was a taxi, but the collision was so minor that the involved parties managed to settle things on the spot, according to Kim’s management. Nobody was injured.

Thankfully it’s not something worth getting excited about. On the other hand, now I have an excuse to post these newly released photos of Kim Joon, below the cut:


I know this is probably sacrilegious to say, but Kim Joon almost reminds me of Jang Dong-gun in these pictures. I think it’s the sleepy eyes, mostly, although there are similarities in the nose and mouth region too.

This is a really great drama series so far! I thought it would be too similar to the Japanese version, but I love the korean series just as much!

Boys Before Flowers Topple East of Eden



KBS2TV Boys Before Flowers has finally knocked MBC East of Eden off the top of the Mon-Tue timeslot after just 4 weeks and fulfilling its potential.

According to TNS Media Korea, although ratings for shows took a severe hit due to the Korean New Year, Boys Before Flowers (19.5%) still edged out East of Eden (17.5%) by an impressive margin of 2 percentage points. The 1.7 percentage point lead enjoyed by East of Eden last Tuesday was wiped out in a flash and it must have been a big blow to MBC as they lost their 19 consecutive weeks of being top dog. Not an auspicious start in the new year.

There are reasons why Boys Before Flowers finally became number 1 yesterday. The good vibes and huge publicity generated by the drama has caught on and people started flocking to see what the whole hype was about. Almost everyday, there will be a headline news revolving around someone in the drama. Secondly, it was the first day of the Korean New Year. Would you rather see pretty faces and happy scenes in Boys Before Flowers or brooding, feuding scenes in East of Eden? The answer is pretty clear for all.

The appearance of heavyweight actress Kim Hyun Joo in Episode 7 yesterday as Goo Joon Hee, elder sister of Goo Joon Pyo might be another factor.
The charismatic elder sister of Goo Joon Pyo
certainly added more glamor.

Red light flashes for Boys Over Flowers

The danger red light flashes for KBS idol drama ‘Boys Over Flowers’.

Following Kim Hyun Joong and Kim Joon’s car accidents on the way home after late night filmings, Lee MinHo is the next actor to meet with a car accident.

On the night of 26th January, Lee MinHo was going home after filming with the accompany of his manager when they met with a minor car accident. Fortunately no one was injured and Lee MinHo headed home after the situation was cleared. But this has clearly showed the danger of doing filming late into the night for the actors.

Before this, Kim Hyun Joong, who also stars in the same drama, met with an accident on 21st January, he did not sustain from any injuries but the right side of the car he was travelling in then was badly damaged. Also on the 22nd, Kim Joon from the cast had also met with a car accident where his car had collided with another taxi but he was not injured as well.

Currently, it was said that the condition for filming has been deteriorating with the actors having to do filming overnight until the wee hours of the morning. The actors and representatives have spoken up about this, “Even though this is very tiring for us, the viewership for the show is coming out really good and we are really happy that the viewers love the show.”

Even without any filming schedules, the cast will have to do interviews and go onto broadcast programs, this makes 24 hours in one day all used up for activities.

The managers to these actors are also having a tiring time. The actors would at least get to have some rest when they are travelling from one place to another but the managers are still working when the actors are having their rest time. This makes managers having to work under the conditions of sleepiness many a times, which can be dangerous.

The final F4 member completes the curse



With the various accidents happening to not only the Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Joon, Lee Minho but also Goo Hye Sun, it was only a matter of time before Kim Bum got into an accident.

On February 1, 2009, Kim Bum got into a fender bender at around 9 pm at a tollgate (yes they were parked). The manager had to be hospitalized due to his injuries but Kim Bum was able to finish shooting his CF with only a back injury. He’ll be undergoing hospital visits for the next three days.

What is going on?

Boys Before Flowers Surpasses 30%

KBS2TV Boys Before Flowers bested its record once again and for the first time, it went past the 30% mark in episode 10 shown last night.


According to TNS Media Korea, despite a pretty depressing episode, Boys Before Flowers registered 30.5% yesterday, an increase of 0.8 percentage points from its previous record of 29.7% set on Monday. Competing dramas MBC East of Eden and SBS Terroir obtained 25.5% and 6.1% respectively.

As you can see from the picture above, Gal Eul was moved by Yi Jung’s actions in helping her to recover from her previous relationship. She was however hurt to know later that Yi Jung just treats everything as purely an act, and nothing more, after she goes to gives him chocolates for Valentine’s Day.


In other developments, Jandi and her family is left in dire straits after Joon Pyo’s mother discovers the link between Joon Pyo and them. Jandi however does not want to burden Joon Pyo and refrains from telling him much. But the soulmate relationship between Jandi and Ji Ho is strengthened in this episode.

Overplaying of Soundtrack in Boys Before Flowers Criticized

Just 2 days ago, KBS Boys Before Flowers ascertained their high popularity with an impressive rating of 30.5% (TNS Media Korea). But on the other hand, the relentless use of songs from the official soundtrack in the drama has led to netizens commenting, “Are we watching a music video or a drama?”

In episode 10 shown on 3rd February, there was an insane amount of background music inserted and had an effect on the overall episode quality. In the total 69 minutes of footage, the total length of songs that were played amounted to around 20 minutes. T-Max Paradise, SS501 My Thoughts Are Bad, TB One More Time, etc were played at least twice in this episode.

If the production team overly promotes the soundtrack to viewers in the hope that they will buy it, then they have every right to be unhappy about this. There wasn’t any real need to do this since the soundtrack was selling like hotcakes and there were lots of pre-orders for it before its release. There were also cries of nepotism directed towards SS501 and T-Max singing for the soundtrack because their members Kim Hyun Joong and Kim Joon are part of F4 in the drama. And so naturally, their groups gets to sing it because of that.

Criticism was also directed towards the inappropriate use of music for some scenes in episode 10. Some expressed their discontent at the countless number of times that Ashily Lucky was played when Jandi appears in the episode.

Another inappropriate use was when Jandi chanced upon Ji Ho playing the piano and Ashily Lucky started playing again. Another example was when Joon Pyo dashes out of the car and goes towards Jandi to kiss her. But the moment was spoiled by T-Max Paradise suddenly playing in the background.

Netizens commented, “This is not the first time actually (overplaying and inappropriate use) but it was simply overdone in the latest episode”, “This is the 1st time that I felt that it was so agonizing listening to music while watching a drama”, “The soundtrack of this drama is a bit scary”, “I really hope that they can tie in the music with the scenes more appropriately in future”.

With regards to the criticism, Group Eight expressed, “The reaction from fans towards the songs from the soundtrack has been very good, so we decided to increase the use of the songs. We will accept all praise and criticism directed towards the drama through our forums and then adapt accordingly.”

Group Eight also dismissed rumors of a possible extension to Boys Before Flowers and assured viewers that the 24 episodes will be sufficient.
