Boys Over Flowers hits Manila

O-M-G! Boys Over Flowers will now hit Manila today! I’ve already seen the whole series via my favorite site, And I can say that if Meteor Garden (the Taiwan version of Hana Yori Dango) was a hit in Manila years ago, for sure Boys Over Flowers will be another! I can’t wait!

Here’s the report from

Hundreds of fans came to ABS-CBN’s Dolphy Theatre last Friday, March 8, to attend the advance screening of the Tagalized version of the most awaited Koreanovela of the year, Boys Over Flowers. Prior to the film-showing, they proved how much they knew about the members of its cast by actively participating in a game hosted by everyone’s best friend, Laila Chikadora of WRR 101.9. Then they couldn’t help screaming in excitement as the film began and Shinwa’s heartthrobs, also known as the F4, came onscreen. But the long wait is over for the rest of the Filipino viewers as Boys Over Flowers premieres on national television this Monday on Primetime Bida.

Get ready to fall in love with Gu Jun Pyo (Lee Min-Ho), Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun-Joong), So Yi Jeong (Kim Bum), and Song Woo Bin (Kim Joon) whose lives change as they cross paths with Geum Jan Di (Koo Hye-Sun), a girl from a middle class family who unexpectedly gets a scholarship in their exclusive school for the elite. While most of the students there are in awe of the F4’s power and wealth, Jan Di is the only one brave enough to stand against them and defy their stupid rules. At first, her tough personality irritates the hell out of F4’s leader Jun Pyo but the latter gradually gets smitten by Jan Di’s honesty and kind heart.

But what happens once he discovers that the first girl he ever sets his eyes on already loves someone else and that guy happens to be his best friend Hyun Joong? How will he win Jan Di’s elusive heart? Is he going to lose both of them in the process?

Don’t miss Boys Over Flowers’ romantic tale of true love and lasting friendship beginning this Monday, May 11, right after Tayong Dalawa.
