I think in both the Japanese and Korean version the
character I like the most is Hanazawa Rui.
Both Oguri Shun and Kim Hyun Joong are so cute.
Each put their effort in the character and have their charm.

okiiee so here is mine: Everything for the japanese version xD because all the other version bothered me alot and none of the actors appealed to me in anyway.
Tsukushi :I dont care what anybody else says about the F4's and the drama but Inoue Mao definitely owned the role of makino. Like she for me was born for that role.even if i wasnt a fan of it i would still admit that she really protrayed her role amazingly. Inoue Mao and Matsujun have crazy chemistry.
Tsukasa: This one I pick Jun. I loved his arrogance and the way he thinks hes so much better than everyone else. But it was so cute how Tsukushi changed him and how he was smitten over here in the first season. And plus he looks really hot but the more important thing is that I love his acting.
Rui: Once again Oguri Shun. Omg after watching HYD i wanted a guy like Shun too. He played the whole shy,silent character really well. Love him as Rui.
Sojiro:for me its between Shota and Kim Bum. Matsuda Shota defintely has the look of a playboy and his voice is really sexy(:
You can see that he is a playboy but Kim Bum looks too innocent to be one although in the drama he is. I just picked Kim Bum cuz hes cute xD but his acting isnt as great as Shota's
Akira:Abe Tsuyoshi played a good supporting person. He truly was the nicest F4 next to Rui. Him and his sisters were so cute and he was just a nice chracter that held the whole group together.






I totally agree with you :D
ButI have to say that the Korean Mimasaka Akira is way hotter than Abe Tsuyoshi:) But isn't that supportive in the Drama, one rarely sees him:S

I totally agree with you, no matter how many other versions come out I just can't get over the Japanese one. All the actors played their parts extremely well and Maotsujun will always be the better paring lol, nobody can beat their chemistry, but I have to admit that the Korean F4 is definitely hot but I still pick the Japanese F4.

Are you kidding me? Korean Rui (ji hoo) smiling too much? wtf he's so nonchalant he almost never smiles! I like the fact that it's hyun joong's first role, it almost gives him an advantage being that he's awkward and doesn't really fit in because that's the exact image of the manga character.

i have only watched HYD and currently watching BOF, my opinion is that

Oguri Shun played a better Rui in my eyes he came of as a soft spoken and reserved guy where as Kim Hyun Joong comes off as stiff, a bit 2 chatty and depressed

I like Matsujun as Domyonji he was smooth but came across as a bit childish but i prefer Lee Min Ho as this character becuz he is a bit more mature but not stiffing so and he can have his moment that he is totally childish which i like

I liked Inoue as Makino she was just a nice character but Koo Hee Sun i a bit below the standard that Inoue played i think this is as she comes across as a bit slow, and i have 2 say i hate scenes where she should be eating as she eats like a slob maybe thats the point that makes he actin a bit less impressive than Inoue i think that they both fit the roles that they played or are playing

Kim Bum is a cutie, he comes across as a bit innocent but not so innocent at the same time dont kno how else 2 explain it he is charmin i think that he plays the playboy role ok not great as i have yet 2 see him pick up a girl, i think that Matsuda Shota played his character well

As for Kim Joon he hasnt left much of an impression on me but he does active try 2 quell any disagreement like Abe Tsuyoshi

Tsukushi Makino --> Japanese
Mao is Makino. She was the best at the role.

Tsukasa Domyouji--> Japanese
Jun was not tall enough for the role but what he lacked in height he made up in acting skills. He is the best at potraying al the different facets of Domyouji and showing the conflict his opposing sides resulted in for him. He was just so good. Lee Min Ho may look like Domyouji but Jun is him. It is kind of like in the movie The Graduate starring Dustin Hoffman. The book character was a WASP but Hoffman got the part even he is Jewish and looks Jewish (not being racist, his assessment) and he owned the role. And they just accepted that maybe the character should have Jewish. Maybe Domyouji should have been short. (Sorry for being random)

Rui Hanazawa--> Japanese/Taiwanese
I cannot stand the Korean Rui. He just doesn't work for me, I mean he is cute but he is seems too happy. He doesn't have the smoothness to pull it off. This was hard to choose between Oguri and Zai Zai. They both completely owned their characters and portrayed them in their own way. So I won't choose between the two.

Nishikado Sojiro--> Japanese
While Kim Ki Bum is very cute, and the main reason why I still watch the Korean version, He does not exude playboy. He looks far too innocent. Same goes for Ken. Shota, on the other hand, I can totally see be Soujiro. I like searched for all his dramas after watching HYD, I thought he was cute and smooth. The man exudes cool in every role I have seen him in.

Mimasaka Akira--> Taiwanese
I LOVE VANNESS.

Matsuoka Yuki--> Korean
I really like the Korean version, she is very adorable and I like her storyline w/ Kim Ki Bum.

In my opinion: Japanese Vs Korean
Character name
best portrayed by

*I haven't seen MG because i just cant stand it so i cant judge the actors*

Makino- Inoue Mao did a terrific job. Jan Di is okay . But Inoue Mao totally
wins as her character.

Tsukasa-This is hard cuz i like both Matsumoto Jun and Lee Min Ho. but, I think in their own way their good. I love Jun to death and his portrayal of Tsukasa [IMO] was great. He was stupid and tough and the way he acted was amusing. Lee Min Ho does good and physically he fits the part except the hair drives me nuts. its so lame [no offense] but he should straighten it out. aside from the hair i think he's way too soft from what i picture Domyoji. So MatsumotoJun wins!

Rui-I like both Oguri Shun and Kim Hyun Joong. But I pick Oguri Shun because he totally has the emo thing down, and i just love Shun as an actor. And its really hard for me to picture anyone else as Rui. Shun=Rui [IMO]. But i like Hyun Joong too, he adds his own flavor to Ji hoo, and hes good at it.

Soujiro-Hands down Kim Bum. I think everyone loves Kim Bum. Im really in love with him and as soujiro he's perfect. He's cute and absolutely charming. When he smiles he melts your heart. I like Shota too but Kim Bum is the best.

Akira-Their characters aren't as developed as the others so its hard really to say why their really the best, and in their own way Kim Joon and Abe Tsuyoshi did good just as everyone else did. Although i still have to pick someone so i choose Kim Joon, because his chemistry with Kim Bum is pretty cool and it always looks natural to me. Plus Kim Joon is cute. And his Woo Bin aka Akira stands out more than the japanese Akira.

Yuki-Kim So Eun wins! Only because i was disappointed with the soujiro/Yuki relationship in the Jdrama, and there's still hope for a Yi Jun/Ga Eul thing going on. Besides you have to admit that Kim Bum and Kim So Eun look adorable together. I liked Nishihara Aki in the Jdrama version too, but [despite my confusion as to why Ga Eul and Jan Di were hardly ever together in the caledonia eps since their suppose to be BFF's] i still like So Eun.

I actually agree with you a 100%!
Although I've gotta give some creds to Jerry Yan for being so hot xD
And I like Matsuda Shota for some reason... also HyunJoong...
But still, those are obvious choices, good job!!!

It is nice to see everyones thoughts, though i think it is a bit early to decide since Korean version isnt even halfway done.

I have seen all of the anime and all of Meteor Garden and some of Hani Yori Dango and all over the BOys Over Flowers episodes so far. But for what I see so far and to compare:

JERRY YAN/Daoy - Taiwanese: He to me was the percfect Daoy. Mean,violent, childish and selfish in the beginning but then changed into a better person. Lee Min Ho was a close second, he played the charming charisma personality spot on but could have been more meaner. Matsumo is a fine actor and did great in the role but his phyiscal appearance of height and not having that wow factor made me never really find him to be Dom. I just could never take him seriously in fitting the role.

INUO MAO/Makino - Japanese: She played a fierce and likeable Makino and never came off as annoying. I do adore Barbie's potrayal, my only problem with her was her always being mad at Jerry's character and would make me frusrated. For Koo as Jan Di, she is cute but trying too hard on those facial expressions and being young and overacting.

VIC ZHOU/Lei- Tawainese: Vic when he was in his role as Lei, i could always feel the loneliness and distance he kept from everyone. He seemed to be on a different world with everyone and the chemistry between him and Barbie was amazing. At one point in the series I actually prefered him with Barbie into later on in the series of course. In BBF, i havent felt there is much of a strong love triangle or between Jan di, Joo Pyo, and Jo Hoo. There is barely a triangle and Kim Hyun needs to start falling in the role more, I think he is holding back because of not so great directing and coming off stiff, he is improving though.
Oguri shun/ Rui is really good as well and perfect too as the role.

KIM BUM/So Yi Korean: Has the charming, radiant smile, playboy act down to the T. I never though I would start liking him been I just ended up doing so. He plays the role wonderfuly, the manersim, gestures etc. Ken from the TW version wasnt bad either. Japanese was alright.

Toss up between VANNESS WU Taiwanese version and KIM JOON Korean version. Both were entertaining and good in the roles, loved how Vanness always played with is hair and how Kim Joon does those my brother yo lines. So funny. What I liked most about these two were how they showed the strong friendship between the F4. I can't pick.

KIM SO EUN/Chu Ga- Korean: Even though they changed her character in the Korean version to be not shy and timid as in the other versions, Kim so made it work. She is bright and so natural in her role unlike Koo who plays Jandi. I personally would have picked her as Jan Di but is what it is. She plays a true best friend.
