Drama Note 30: Flower Men?



Lots of pictures!!! No matter how many different countries try to reproduce this drama, I can never understand the title “Flower-like Men” aka “Boys Before Flowers”, but maybe it’s the oddness that gives it some edge? Korea seems to be the last to hop onto the train to produce this popular manga. In 2001, Taiwan produced Meteor Garden and in 2006, Japan produced Hana Yori Dango, and now in 2008, Korea? Hopefully, the korean version won’t disappoint me as much as the taiwanese or the japanese version. The drama is set to air in mid-December 2008 and hopefully a great christmas present!.

Finally, after months of discussion and decision, the unofficial cast has been set with a couple of popular veteran actresses, and a lot cute young actors (hehe ^_^) The story revolves around a poor average girl named Geum Ja Di who becomes involved with a boy group called F4, notorious for their tendency to cause trouble and wealth. Hoping to catch a glimpse of this drama after finishing Worlds Within Worlds. The casting is as follows:

  • Goo Hye Sun (Pure 19, Strongest Chil Woo)- Geum Da Bi
  • Lee Min Ho (I Am Sam, Mackerel Run) – Goo Joon Pyo
  • Kim Hyung Joong (Spotlight) – Yoon Ji Hoon
  • Kim Bum (the actor!, not the Super Junior singer)- So Yi Jung
  • Kim Joon – Song Woo Bin

  1. Kim hyun joon is not the person who plays Yoon Ji Hoon. It’s Kim Hyun Joong, the leader of ss501. The picture you have up there is the picture of the baby of the group ss501 and he’s not in the drama.

  2. thanks

  3. I know they are filming now. Do you have any of the set pictures?

  4. Even though it’s a personal blog but I think you should definitely check your sources before posting something. First of all the guy who is playing rui is Kim Hyun Joong, NOT Kim Hyung Joon. A bit confusing but it’s still important to get it right. The bottom picture to the right is also wrong. That’s the Hyung Joon from ss501 as it has their initial on the picture. Kim Joon looks nothing like that guy and he’s from a totally different boy band. Look it up:)

  5. Upper left: Lee Min Ho
    Upper Right: Kim Hyun Joong (the pic is correct, he’ll play Rui, only the name is wrong)
    Bottom Left: Kim Bum (the pic is still correct)
    Bottom Right: Gu Hye Sun (pic is correct too)
    There’s no pic of Kim Joon here though…
    I hope I made everything clear for those who commented…
    Hyun Joong Fighting!!!!
    Ssangchu Couple Fighting!!!
