Korean Drama Review — Boys Over Flowers

Hey people! How have you all been doing? 🙂
So I am back with another k-drama review. Please enjoy it!

Boys Over Flowers is a show that revolves around the prestigious Shinwa High School’s  popular group known as the F4 (Flower Four?). This group consists of 4 very rich, very spoilt and extremely good looking boys (Goo Jun Pyo, Yoon Ji Hoo, Song Woo Bin, So Yi Jung) who consider themselves high and mighty (above all in the school). But when newcomer Geum Jan Di doesn’t comply to their orders and doesn’t submit to their torture, these boys are left bewildered! Never having seen such a courageous and upright person, leader of the pack – Jun Pyo, becomes fascinated with her and soon develops a soft spot.  Alas! The sensitive Ji Hoo is also looking out for gutsy Jan Di and they seemed to have formed a strong bond. Will Jun Pyo be able to get through to her before Ji Hoo sweeps her off her feet?!

From the first episode, I fell in love with this show. I mean, what’s not to love?! I keep wondering how lucky they are for having cast these 4 guys. Each of them is absolutely stunning! I think the TRP for the drama catapulted mainly because of the actors and the line of plot they chose!
Lee Min Ho plays the part of arrogant, egoistic Jun Pyo, perfectly. Kim Hyun Joong has nailed the part of charismatic Ji Hoo especially since in a report I read him saying he is totally different from the character. Kim Joon fit the role of Woo Bin well, though I wish they’d shown more about his life. I’d look forward to those moments when he’d go all “Yo Yo Man!” 😀 And Kim Bum couldn’t have done better justice to role of aesthetic Yi Jung. I have seen some of the bloopers and he seemed like a very humorous guy as in he would crack up in between shots. It always made me laugh. Moving on to the one girl who turned their lives upside down 😛 Geum Jan Di. She is a very strong willed character, a brave-heart one could say. She is the kind of girl who wouldn’t deal with any nonsense and believes in standing up for what is right no matter the cost. Ku Hye Sun totally kicked butt as Jan Di. She is fierce and also very amiable. Her bold nature makes her stand out in the crowd. There are times when she is caught between the 2 friends (Jun Pyo and Ji Hoo) but at end she knows where she belongs. Chu Ga Eul is Jan Di’s best friend and falls for Yi Jung. For love, she is ready to go to any extent (in a positive way!). She helps out Yi Jung as much as she can.

The storyline is absolutely wonderful! Its based on a manga and I hear, there are several versions of it in different languages. I wish they would have avoided the love triangle. Its does no justice to anyone! There were quite a few times I wanted to shake Jan Di and be like “make up your mind woman!!” 😛
I didn’t think I would say this, but I can totally watch the show all over again! Its that amazing! And there were times when the boys would swoop in to save Jan Di from trouble – I totally got into cheerleader mode, screaming and hooting. My 2nd favourite couple(1st being  Jun Pyo and Jan Di ofcourse) is Ga Eul and Yi Jung (right). They are just so adorable together. Not much action there but at the end we come to know they have decided to stick together and that’s great! She would make a very caring girlfriend.

Overall, just mind-blowing and very addicting. As the 2nd k-drama, I’m glad I chose this one! Hope you watch it.. if you haven’t already! 😀

Rating – 5 stars!!
