Although I do agree that the Korean F4 are much hotter (I've been drooling about Jun Pyo and Yi Jeung haha), my hearts goes with Hana Yori Dango.

I will admit that when I first start to watch it, I couldn't stand MatsuJun because I thought that he was so ugly, but his acting was so superb that by ep3 I was totally rooting for him and Makino. He was just adorable and funny, and at the same time, he manage to portrayed the hard and cruel Domyouji. Lee Min Ho is totally hot and look-wise he'd win for sure, but he isn't Domyouji.. Jun Pyo is just like any other Korean lead guy: handsome, rich, a bit arrogant but is actually nice. Think of Shin in Goong or Gong Chan in My Girl. But because those guys are always irresistible, I'd lie if I say that I didn't go crazy for Jun Pyo haha

Jang Di annoys the hell out of me so there's no doubt that I,m going for Inoue Mao's Makino here. I agree with whoever said that she really lack of manner and is really overacting. In addition to that, she really looks old for the part she's playing.

The chemistry between the characters in HYD was also much beteter. I really believe in F4's friendship. Remember the part when Rui is leaving for France with Shizuka? Domyouji almost looked distressed there, quite touching (and the grated apple part too, although i'm not really sure if Tsukasa made that up haha). In the korean version, F4 only looks like a gang of rich boys who are together because they are the richest. I was quite frustrated that the friendship between Ji Hoo and Jun Pyo was nowhere near the relationship between Rui and Tsukasa.

I haven't read the manga nor did I watch the anime, so I'm not really able to say which storyline is better or closer to the really story. But in my opinion, the Korean version is just like the classical korean drama formula, very typical.

All that said, if I stop comparing, Boys over Flowers is really enjoyable drama with great OST and eyecandy leads. Did I mention that Kim Bum is toooooootally cute??? haha

Oh wow. This has been very hard on me. Sadly yet in a good way I am liking boys before flowers over hana yori dango. Some people say the female lead is ugly and stuff. I find her very pretty in my opinion. She looks innocent and cute. I am liking the korean cast alot more than the japanese and Taiwanese Cast. The exclusive boys before flower scenes are in my opinion alot better than that of hyd. It is a tie when it comes to the F4 for me. hanazawa rui takes the win just barely over the korean one. I like both goo joon pyo and domyioji. the female lead. I give it to the korean girl. I feel more pity for her and more happiness for her than the japanese one. The japanese lead acted way to tough for me. The korean one she is tough but she rather just not push anything. Plus korean version shows how she started to love the korean hanazawa rui. rather than in hana yori dango where it started off her liking him allready. Boys before Flower has a bit deeper story than HYD in my opinion. things are shown in more detail.

I also believe that boys before flowers is not meant to be EXACTLY like HYD nor Meteor Garden. if it was it won't be any special than the others. goo joon pyo's character matches the korean version. and the actor playing him. and same goes for HYD too.

sorry for not writing the korean names of f4 i can't remember right now their names except for goo joon pyo lol

for me the victor obviously is....!!!!

Rui - korean version.. never liked oguri and never will *though he's good at acting*

Soujirou - both of them did a good job

I guess koo hye sun is too old to be makino.....inoue mao is the best makino! cause yeah! jandi's friend Ga eul (kim so eun) is pretty! and the story with ga eul and yi jeong is the best! (i love the korean f4 and lee min ho looks good!)...and oh he got new actor nomination and popularity award nomination in the 45th Beaksang award.this coming fEB.along with co-actor kim bum (bcoz of east of eden)......

Hana Yori Dango VS. Boys Before Flower

ok so i know that the series Boys Before Flowers isnt done quite yet (well as of today that i am writing this) but it already has my friends and i debating which cast members we prefer

so tell me which one you would prefer for each f4 member and some of the main girls.. alot of you guys are thinking that im doing this off of looks but im doing it off as to how i came across the characters in the manga. i read the manga in japanese, and i dont know if people might have taken characters personality differently because the translations. If you know what i mean when japanese is translated into english is sounds soooo weird u dont even know.. lol


VS

~ i prefer the korean version of domyoji. in the series he is called goo joon pyo out of the (korean) f4 goo joon pyo is much taller and bigger in size and this makes him look more tougher which is the character that he is supposed to play. While the Japanese version domyoji is actually shorter then some of the (japanese) f4 members and he isnt as strong looking as goo joon pyo. Over all The korean goo joon pyo has a more masculine face and therefore looks more intimidating, i personally think he looks much better.
(thou u guys comment that i picked joon pyo cause his looks..yes that may be true.. but i like him because he is a gentleman.. yes yes i know that kinda ticks off the whole conflict between the main two actors)



VS

~ i prefer the japanese rui.. anyday.. everyday oguri shun!!! maybe this one im picking cause of looks.. but i think rui has this cool guy look instead of the quite guy cause in the korean version he really was just sitting down on the ground.. while like in this pic. oguri shun has this pose.. i dont know.. makes me think he knowns he's cool.. but even stilll OGURI SHUN



VS

~ i prefer the korean version.. he is sooooo cute!!! he is sooooo cute.. u cant see it in his picture but when u watch the drama... ok ok u guys say he isnt much of a playboy.. i think it depends on how u look at it.. there are women out there that are attracted to baby faces kim bum and then the ones with masculine faces the japanese version. i think its whichever one u are attracted to either baby face or masculine to be the playboy. I find babyfaces much cuter so i would think that babyfaced people are the playboys.



VS

~ i prefer the korean guy.. tho it was hard to decide.


VS


~omg the korean version girl is sooo ugly.. i mean here its ok.. but in the drama her hair is sooo ugly! how can goo joon pyo fall for her!!! and like makino is so much prettier.. she doesnt have a elegant pretty but a natural pretty...


VS

~korean version much better!!! her friend is so cute and pretty i can imagine the tea/ceramic guy falling for her. not saying that the japane version friend is ugly.. but i like the korean version friend more..


Tell me what u think! and by the way.. dont take the things i said personally
Oh one thing u guys mentioned! about the yelling.. well u should know that in korean dramas there are alot more yelling.. so if u dont watch alot of korean dramas u would be suprised.. but i kinda like korean dramas that way.. though hana yori dango's makino was different most japanese dramas u never hear the women raise her voice and thats what i hate about it. They make women seem like we cant raise our voice when were mad or whatnot. Another thing u guys mentioned is the music. Well about that.. there were some soundtrack that came out on cd's that were really good like the flavor of life and stuff.. but other then that i find japanese drama's background music corny .. while korean drama's either have top radio music in the background when the mood is happy and really dramatic music when its like the tense sense.. and i prefer that.. lol i guess i just prefer korean drama's over all.. LOL dont take me wrong.. and dont think im taking sides cause u guys must think im yay korea.. but i am from japan.. lol



i agree!

i like the whole cast of hana yori dango more. they seem funnier and better looking than the korean version. inoue mao is a lot better in acting than the korean one. the korean one doesnt really seem tomboyish. the feeling of boys over flowers doesnt appeal much to me.

my problem is not really the storyline, (I can usually stand boring episode ones )
it's Geum Jan Di, more corretly Koo Hye Sun..
maybe I am bias becuase I watched Hanadan before BBF, and I absolutely LOVED Mao..
I only watched 30 mins of BBF, maybe I should be more patient lol
