Boys Over Flowers 꽃보다男子by Angela, Teen Blogger


For all of you Korean drama (K-drama) fans, I’m sure you have watched Boys Over Flowers  or heard of it before. It’s perhaps one of the most popular K-dramas that Canadians watch. Personally, BOF is my favourite TV series. It has various themes and the plot is very interesting. This drama is recommended for people who like romantic comedies.

Geum Jan-di (acted by Ku Hye-sun) is an average high school girl whose family owns a dry-cleaning shop. She seems very much out of place when she is offered the chance to attend Shinhwa High, which is a private high school for rich students. Upon meeting the hottest boys of the school, a group called F4, Jan-di is shocked by their behaviours. But, as she gets to know them, she discovers the struggles in their lives that lie behind their appearance.

Goo Jun-pyo (acted by Lee Min-ho) is the heir to the powerful Shinhwa group. He has total control over the student body, except for one person, Jan-di.

Yoon Ji-hoo (acted by Kim Hyun-joong) is an orphan and a talented artist. He is the person who stays by Jan-di’s side from the beginning. He protects her in various ways and saves her from the menaces of other students.

So Yi-jung (acted by Kim Bum) is an extraordinary potter who has a playboy personality. He is later involved with Jan-di’s best friend, Ga-eul.

Song Woo-bin (acted by Kim Joon) is the son of a mafia man. He sometimes feels like he doesn’t belong with the almighty F4 since he doesn’t have any remarkable talents like the other members.

Did you know: Boys Over Flowers originated from Japanese manga, but was adapted into various dramas by different Asian countries.

I hope you enjoy this drama. When you are done with it, try watching the television series, Faith (2012), or the DVD, City Hunter (2003). They are also well rated among K-drama fans.
