For me the Taiwan version is still close to my heart and will always be the best among the best Hana Yori Dango.

Man...I'm so pissed at the Korean version right now. Watching episode 6 and Jan Di (Makino) has betrayed Joon Pyo (Doumyoji character) by allowing Ji Hoo (Rui character) to kiss her on the lips.

Why did the writers have to do that? Now whatever happens next...the love between the two main characters will always be tainted.

Nope...the Japanese version did not have Rui and Makino kissing on the beach.

The only kiss I remember between those two was in Season 2 when Makino was in the hospital and sleeping (Rui kissed her then).

to me it does not matter how many versions of this manga will be made.. i love the story line and everytime dere is a remake im willing to watch (maybe abit skeptical bout the pinoy version if dere ever will be one though)., dere r some parts bout d korean versions the like.. dere r some corny but hilariuos kines. love the part when gyn pyo says did u see my heart reminds me of erics line in phoenix: do u smell something burning, i think its my heart"... loving korean version.. cant wait to s d rest.. But i haven't seen chemistry n vibe like d one present in MG.. MG F4 had a close relationship n especially meizhou n ximen.. you know wat i havent seen anyone like vanness he is just one of kid.. actually d whole MG F4 is one of kind.. (warning this is my opinion alone n we agree to disagree)

I've watched all three versions (well still watching the Korean version lol) and I must say, I loved them all- they all had their good and bad points. However, so far I'm liking the Korean version slightly more than the other two ^^;

Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, so here's mine.

Meteor Garden is and will always be the closest to my heart. It doesn't matter whether they are tight on budget that time, or F4 clothes are ugly or Vic is way too thin that time. I love it all for its imperfections. When i started watching this drama, I haven't read the manga, so I have no expectations. I hated Dao Ming si at first since I thought San Chai and Lei will end up together in the end and he's just the antagonist in the story. But the way the story was developed, your feelings for Dao Ming Si will change as the story progresses, until you're rooting for him in the end. That is Character Development. Jerry, being a first time actor, sometimes act funny. But his character is really funny. So it matches perfectly. I saw the HYD Anime and Doumyouji is stupid and funny, thus, he's endearing, the way Jerry portrayed him to be. Jun played him like an ass all the way. Even his sweet moments with Inoue didn't do a thing for me in changing my opinion of him. Maybe I'm bias because I think he looks ugly so not love lost for him ( sorry )

Jerry and Barbie also has the perfect chemistry. And that is something that was not present in the other 2 dramas.
Japanese girl cute - Jun ugly. Korean Jun Pyo - cute Jan di - ugly.

Jerry barbie Vic triangle is the best. Either somebody is rooting for Dao Ming Si or for Hwa Tze Lei. Didn't feel it in the 2 other dramas.

Im watching Boys before Flowers now and I like it better than the Japanese Version. Jun Pyo is so good looking...should have build more muscles before shooting though. Jan Di is the one who ruins this drama for me. She's overacting...and she's not even cute. I wished they have chosen another actress to play the lead. Her best Friend Geumal is cuter.

Kim Ki bum though I think is the best among the 3 ( ken and don't know the HYD guy ). He's sophisticated and cute.

japan, overall had the better hyd. i felt like the story moved along at a good pace, the shots were amazing, the details put into every part of production were awesome, and the actors and actresses chosen overall was great and i thought they all geled well. the only thing though is i did like mg's love progression between the two main characters (but i suppose they could do that since they extended it to so many episodes). i do want to actually read the manga, now with 3 hyd's out (and possibly a 4th on the way?)

on the actors chosen to play the characters... if i understood the characters the way i think i do... here's my pick.

i liked Da S best, i felt like she had the most "fight" that i thought the main character would have. i also liked her expressions best... maybe that's just me lol.

jerry and matsumoto are kind of tied in my eyes. i thought they both played the character really well and i loved both of their personalities and their interpretations on the character. it's hard to pick between them.

i liked vic zhou best, i still think he played a much better rui out of all of 3.

we'll see where the korean hyd goes, i won't lie, so far i am enjoying it, but we'll see how they do. so far, i'm iffy about their choices but they might just win me over at the end of it all.
