I like Boys before flowers and then Hana yori Dango the most. Honestly through i din't like meteor garden at all. I didn't even wanna watch it. I like the korean version the best because i like the love story between yi hyung and gauel. Kim Bum was so hot and i also like gaeul very much. Honestly through Junpyo bug the s**t outta me. SEriously how immature can he get. I like Jihoo alot. I wish jandi and him ended up together. Also thelast member of the F4 couldn't read his name but he was really cute and they didnt give him enough lines and on screen time. Like all the members had plot about them and he was the only that didn't . They gave him more screen time towards the end but that sucked becuase I wish they started doing that earlier. For the jap version I didnt watch it that closely but i love soujirou he's so hot. Tsukasa is more mature than junpyo (personal opinion).

Ok now IM going to break it down lol

I like Boys before flowers best because of the story line in the sense that its lighthearted which I like and very funny. I also like jan di very much and the fact that it moves quickly and doesnt drag on as hyd. ALSO that they have much happier endings on some things and tie some knots (like jandis friend and uhm gu jun pyos friend i forget... that did NOT happen in HYD)

I like HYD second, but for the following: the cast (except makino, im sorry lol), everyone was much more convincing.

I unfortunately haven't seen meteor garden. SHAME ON ME! I will though!

omg we think alike! lol i didnt like gu jun pyo much at first... tho now i do a little. but domyouji was more convincing and so was jan di, they shoulda been stuck together to make a SUPER DRAMA.... Boys before HANA lol and combined elements of both

Kinda hard to choose actually. Specially since I have a virtual tie with HYD and BOF....lol don't take me wrong MG wasn't bad...it was just the first one and well MG2 kinda hurt its ranking with me

I would rank them thusly

1. (tie) Boys Over Flowers & Hana Yori Dango.


Both followed the storyline well, even though BOF did its own thing in the beginning, then again with three other variations out there something had to be different to make it interesting (I include the anime) otherwise it would of been the same old same old (though come to think of it no version completely went the manga way, was kinda hoping that one would of with the ending.)
BOF may edge out with me in the end because of two reasons. First, it gave you a flash back of the other two versions (come on I couldn't of been the only one who laughed when the bus scene happened), though more heavily on the HYD side of things. Also it continued on and added a bit more of the storyline without trying to totally finish it. Even though her profession choice did change ...elements of right after graduating were there, though it didn't try and do too much with it.
I think the only reason why HYD is a close second is the movie. Interesting and creative, yet...it also went to the left side of right, though in a different way than MG2. Their variation of the end, even though quite different ...felt solid, and was rather enjoyable to watch. Though ask me tomorrow and I'd probably switch these two around again and half way through the day switch it back taking into consideration BOF went beyond graduation without trying to finish it out.

3. Meteor Garden

It was good though with MG2 the pace felt like it was thrown off in the end and what could of been was ...well they tried to do too much with its finite space and the last bit of the series felt ....rushed (not sure that's even the right word to use here because its not quite right). In short it just fell flat. Without MG2 I'd probably rank it still this way but MUCH closer to the other two. Though ironically did come closest to any dealings the church thing. The beginning of MG2 was a nice way to go with it... I only have probs with the abruptness of the ending...hmm closer to the word I'm looking for.


As for the acting or 'appearance' of the actors....the acting , storyline and how its linked to the base of the story could be criteria to be considered but looks, nahh not for me...looking at the whole not just the bits that make it up.

If You are going to ask me who is the best Makino Tsukushi, I would say It will be Geum Jan Di , if it is for Domyouji Tsukasa, I would say it is the Japanese Version Domyouji Tsukasa. If For Hanazawa Rui, my decision would be neutral for Yoon Ji Hoo and the Japanese verion Hanazawa Rui. If your going to let me choose who is the Best Nishikado Sojiro I would honestly say that my favorite is So Yi Jung. And lastly for Mimasaka Akira I would be neutral for Song Woo Bin and the Japanese Version for Mimasaka Akira. I would say that at first I was really biased at Hana Yori Dango because I have never watched Meteor Garden. Because for me. I think that it's too long. I can't resist dramas that are too long. 25 episodes is almost my limit. But I have no patience For 30-31 episodes. But when I watched Boys Before Flowers, I suddenly liked it more than my liking for Hana Yori Dango. Because if the actors of Boys Before Flowers will cry, you will also feel like you would want to cry. If they would be angry, you will also feel like you are angry at something. They express feelings that normal people will really feel. Plus, Korea's version of F4 is the hottest I've ever seen!!! So my decision will be:





1. Boys Before Flowers
2. Hana Yori Dango
3. Meteor Garden

Aside the looks.
I say Hana Yori Dango is the better. The actress who played Makino really portrayed bold and courageous.
I watched a few episodes Boys Before Flowers, but I stopped becayse the character, Geum Jan Di, got really annoying. Sorry
Geum Jan Di's Bold and courageous just sounded loud and annoying for me.


I also think that Inoue Mao plays the better Makino. I watched only like a little more than half of the first episode and I couldn't take it anymore. I didn't like the way she acted.

I like HYD best. Tsukasa played by MatsuJun. I really liked that. :] Rui and Makino are awesome played by Shun and Inoue Mao too.
Sorry peoples, but I don't think that the korean cast of BOF is actually that good-looking.

my opinion is korean version boys over flowers 1st then japanese version hana yori dango 2nd and last will be the taiwanese version meteor garden. Initially without comparison everyone seems to be crazy over the taiwan F4 but as japan and korea does it, they outdo much better than the taiwanese. Kudos to japanese and korean for their effort. The japanese version took a lot of effort to follow closely the orginal manga while the korean version took effort to not blindly follow what others did and try to add in different storyline to their plot. well done! And apologies if my comments have hurt you in one way or another ( the above are only all my personal thoughts)
