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.



finally!!someone mentioned jerry's name!!!LOL i TOTALLY agree with u!!for me,jerry yan potrayed it very well!

NONE of the Rui's. They didnt even come close to the image i had in my head of him. Looks wise.

Korean Tsukasa is perfect, so is japanese makino.....

All I know is, Inoue Mao did the best out of all the other Makino/Jandi/Shan Cai out there.

With Domyouji/Jun Pyo it's half/half for me, because with Jun Pyo, he brings something else to the drama.

But, chemistry-wise, I liked Mao/Jun's portrayal of Domyouji/Makino the best, because it really feels... right? I don't know.


I hope this isn't confusing.

omg!! i love all the characters in korean version not because they r gud looking but their characters like yijung i like his smile (omg) ji hoo (gosh he is very fashionable i love him in white hihihihii and his acting is good he really fit rui's character) junpyo (the sweet version of tsukasa you will love him because of his sweet side and he holds jandi like a man have u noticed it hhihihh) woo bin (very handsome and i like his yo!! bravo!! LOL hahahaha)

for makino i like inoue mao for that character she is so good and she really fits d role and i like the family of the japanes version thab the korean because d korean is soo ambitious for me because they really push jandi to junpyo and they r so irritating ><

gaeul is the best role for makino's bestfriend!! she is so cute and i love the yijung♥gaeul tandem!!!!


i only like lei and rui for japanese and taiwanese version

among the three versions, i must say the korean version is the best...

Kim Bum's acting was superb! He was totally awesome and very talented... (not to mention cutie)

Hyun Joong also made me appreciate his character even more. He's also excellent in playing Ji Hoo.

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.


agreed!
wow you took the same things right out of my brain
