    i read from af from n soompi too. soompi has more than af but honestly i don't feel comfortable with the comments there. They like to bashing/critize JH, JH&JD shipper and even KHJ so i stopped before i have this 'illfeel' to the drama and LMH too.

    What can we say, LMH (who play JP) is an actor while KHJ is a singer with 4D personality And admitted in the couple early eps his acting was bad but if u follow 'till the end of the series, you will find his acting skill improved a lots.

    Here's the manga info for Domyoji: http://niko-niko.net/hana/doumyouji.html (I think it's worth reading to understand his character in a different light, so don't let your bias get in the way).

    Anyway I still see it as Beauty and the Beast type of relationship.
    Suet Seung, thank you for the links to the character info. So Rui has a dad instead of a grandather. I'm assuming he was an only child since there wasn't any other info on his family. I vaguely remember Beauty and the Beast but I agree with you about the resemblance. I didn't think about it before but after reading the character info on Domyoji, he does kind of remind of the beast, especially the section that mentions about him being lonely and covering up his feelings with anger and how Tsukushi is able to influence him to change.

    True that KHJ isn't the best actor but I do agree that he improved a lot as the drama progressed and, from what I read from a few news articles a while back, it seemed like he really worked hard at improving too.

    I've seen parts of WGM and a few of KHJ interviews and he cracks me up. He says some of the weirdest things which makes me laugh so hard. I can see why they refer to him as having a "4D personality." His personality is cute though. Glad that he got more screentime in the drama since I liked watching his scenes the most. And most of his scenes with GHS was so sweet. I was glad that they expanded Rui's character too, he is my favorite HYD character after all.

The actress would have portrayed that as the truth, of how JD slowly discovers that she loves JH afterall and it would have been a splendid finish to a very nicely developed relationship betwen JD and JH! (And I thought JP's fiancee was quite cool too, so I wouldn't have felt too awful for JP! )
    I was hoping for that kind of ending too, I was so sad that it didn't happen. I actually thought JK matched more with JP than JD did. It would have been a refreshing twist to the story as well. But I guess a lot of HYD fans would be very upset if the ending didn't follow the manga's ending.

    JonDoe, thanks for the trivia tidbit, it was an interesting read. Glad to hear that Yoko thought that the cast matched her characters. I agree with her too. I didn't really like the castings for the previous two versions so I never watched them. I still don't get the "big sister/aunt" controversy. The "aunt" one is kind of weird to me, GHS doesn't look that old.

    Agree with you both- KHJ improves throughout the serial, though I still think LMH is the better actor, but I'm definitely hoping KHJ does another TB series so we can see more of his development as an actor. Not to mention, yeah, from WGM, I think KHJ as a personality endearing!

    Expanding Rui's character I think is the number 2 fabulous thing they did with this version. Number 1 is probably their central idea of "finding the most attractive people they can to play F4" Good marketing ploy to the female populace- and does it ever work!

    Okay, after reading over a half of the AF postings (the latter half) I feel vaguely vindicated.

    People noticed Ji Hoo, and though he was probably still less popular than JP, I'm glad that there's some recognition of the attractiveness of the character. And if I ever get a chance I'm going to give Francesca a big hug for being such a loyal team Ji Hoo poster!

    Entirely hit the nail on the head for me, I realized s/he has posted lots about how I feel weeks before I even watched the serial, so I'm now happy not saying too much more.

    I agree with you yanfeng that LMH is the better actor but I still like KHJ more though. Not that I dislike LMH as an actor or anything. Same here, I hope to see KHJ in another drama too. I'm glad to hear that there are others who feel the same about JH.

    Cool Boys Over Flowers (꽃보다 남자) 2009

    Boys Over Flowers/ 꽃보다 남자/ Hana Dori Yango


    So. The cast?
    Lee Min Ho as Goo Joon Pyo/ Goo Jun Pyo

    The leader of F4 and heir to the global business enterprise of Shinhwa Group. His trademark is his curly hair. He is used to doing whatever he wants whenever he wants and often offends others with his aggressively direct personality. However, under his tough exterior Joon Pyo is a pure-hearted young boy. Gu Joon Pyo was raised by the employees of his parentsí company, since his parents didnít have time for him, so, naturally, he is attracted by the warmth of Jan-diís normal family. Although he dismisses Jan-di at first because she is not rich, he ends up falling head over heels for her charming bright personality.

    Kim Hyun Joong (of SS501) as Yun Ji Hu

    Yun Ji-hu is the most handsome member of F4 and the grandson of a former Korean president. When he was five years old, he was the sole survivor of a car accident that killed both his parents, and as a result he became withdrawn and anti-social. However when he meets his first love, Seo-hyeon, she helps him get over his difficulties. After meeting Jan-di on the staircase, Yun Ji-hu also becomes her knight in shining armor and helps her out whenever she needs it. This character likes to be alone and has a bit of a strange personality. Yun Ji-hu has a great love and talent for music, and is set to become the leader of the Suam Cultural Foundation, Suam Art Center, and Suam Orchestra.

    Kim Bum as So Yi Jeong

    Yi Jeongís father is Koreaís most famous Master of Arts. When Yi Jeongís older brother leaves the family, Yi Jeong suddenly becomes the heir to Koreaís largest private museum, Woo Song. He is popular with girls due to his gentle manners and clean-shaven appearance. After being hurt by his first love he turns into a bit of a playboy, but then he starts to show an interest for Jan-diís friend Ga-eul. Cold and uncompromising at first, Yi Jeong is in fact a warm character at heart.

    Kim Jun (T-Max) as Song Wu Bin

    For many generations, Song Wu-binís family has been the leaders of the criminal organization, Ilsim, and he is the heir to Ilsim Construction. Ilsim has extensive networks and a great ability in manipulating cash flows, which even the Shinhwa Group cannot ignore. Whenever his fellow F4 members are in trouble, Song Wu-bin makes a call to his large network of connections so that the problem is quickly taken care of. Song Wu-bin has an innate sense of finances and is also a great fighter. Even though he is still young, Song Wu-bin already displays a charisma well fitting for a boss of the underworld.

    Gu Hye Sun as Geum Jandi

    Geum Jan-di is a normal schoolgirl whose family manages a small dry cleaning business. One day she is selected to join the prestigious Shinhwa High School, where she joins the swim team. Unable to stand the nagging of her parents, Jan-di decides to attend Shinhwa High School, but when she starts she is tagged with the F4ís red card and has to endure teasing and bullying from them and the other students. However, displaying her strong, bright personality, Jan-di stands up to F4 and the entire student group. At first she begins to fall for F4ís Yun Ji-hu, but then the leader of F4 and heir to the Shinhwa business conglomerate, Gu Jun-pyo, openly professes his love for her in front of the school, and she becomes the envy of all the girls. Geum Jan-di is an optimistic and honorable girl who is never dazzled by financial wealth or social status. Even after she joins Shinwa High School she remains true to her ideals.





    I'm actually surprised I don't see a thread floating around for this drama. Or have my searching skills failed me?

    The original thread did put (Korean Version) in parenthesis, how could you not notice or even read what was written in there to know it is for the Korean version?
    I just love how you Captivate My Mind

    Self reminder - Update blog more often and continue editing/writing for TOV fanfic.

    A little bonus for BOF fans.

    Koo Hye Sun appeared in an year-end acting award in school uniform fashion, shocking everyone.
