“Boys Before Flower” which is also known as “Hana Yori Dango”, I assume most people would have known the story already and maybe have seen the Japanese or Taiwanese version already. As I have seen the Taiwanese and Japanese version already I wasn’t expecting a lot from the Korean version, but surprisingly the first episode was pretty good and wasn’t disappointing at all.
Obviously there is a bit different compare to the 2 other version otherwise people would get bored of the story. The changes from the first episode aren’t that big, only the start of it was different and when Geum Jan-di got into the school it pretty much follows the original story.
I thought the Japanese version was already exaggerated and over the top but the Korean version was more exaggerated in the richness, riding a helicopter to school?
The acting is a bit stiff but I think it will be better as it goes. I guess I am looking forward to the second episode for more scene of Jan-di and Yoon Ji-hu.
