After having Taiwanese and Japanese live-action adaptations, the manga series Boys over Flowers ("Hana Yori Dango") will now have a South Korean live-action adaptation. The show will still bear the same name and will remain faithful to the original story, although some details such as the characters' names will be changed due to cultural differences. It will premiere on January 5 in the Korean TV network KBS, and is expected to create fangirl madness in the country and around the world.

Boys Over Flowers' leading lady will be actress Ku Hye-sun (age 24) as "Tsukushi," whose character will be renamed Geum Jan-di. Although the show's producers wanted to duplicate the image of the anime from hairstyles to character height, select details such as names, were changed due to cultural differences. Lee Min-ho (21) will take on the role of "Tsukasa Domyoji," as Goo Jun-pyo; Kim Hyun-joong (22) will act as the cuddly "Rui Hanazawa," or Yoon Ji-hu; Kim Bum (19) will be "Sojirou Nishikado," or So E-jeong; and lastly but certainly not least, Kim Jun (23) will take on the role of "Akira Mimasaka," as Song Woo-bin.


With the continuous popularity of Hana Yori Dango in all of its forms in Japan, Meteor Garden having unquestionably been one of the most popular dramas in all of Taiwanese television (and later banned in China); Jun Ki-sang's Boys Over Flowers will have to play to some very high expectations.
