boys before flower(korean drama 2009)
synopsis :Jan Di is an average girl whose family owns a dry cleaning store located near the luxurious and well known Shin Hwa College. Jan Di meets the four richest and most spoiled boys known as the F4. After saving a boy from jumping off the roof of Shinhwa High School, she is admitted into the school on a swimming scholarship. Jan Di tries to avoid confrontation with the F4 at all cost because she knows what happens to those that stand against them. However, when Jan Di's friend, Oh Min Ji, accidentally gets ice cream on the leader of the F4's shoes, she's forced to declare war on the leader of the F4, Goo Joon Pyo.
comments after watching until its finished:ok i see that the viewer's rating is excellent in korea. ok i see that the story is not far from the original manga,is kinda mix between meteor garden and hana yori dango dramas i've watched before.and that its made in korean taste and cultural background, but for me is really annoying somehow.why?because everything's not really in a maximum climax. Jun pyo's mother wasn't so cruel as MG and HYD,jan di's not really a very poor family,coz i see in her room,she has flat lcd screen computer,that quite expensive here,the clothes is ok for an average commoner.the lack of chemistry between the triangle love jun pyo-jan di- ji hoo.what makes me upset even more is that jandi character is not attractive in every angle,not cute and inspiring as the japan version,the beauty level is just annoying compare to all of her rivals.even her bestfriend looks younger,coz her face just looked too old for a highschooler.jun pyo's quiet resistance just bored me,ji hoo's thick make up made him pretty rather than looking cool. after all i still love the japanese version alot better! even after watching this one. the F4 gang is ok,the fashion is ok.the rest is so so.
