Country: South Korea PlotSet at a famous high school for the super-wealthy, this is a puppy love story centered on a poor girl and the F4 gang of rich kids headed by the rough and fearless Jun-pyo Koo. Jan-di Geum (Hye-seon Ku) is a girl from a poor family but has an unrivaled sense of optimism and drive and is by chance admitted to a prestigious private high school. There she meets the infamous group of four astonishingly good looking and rich boys who are known as F4. The group's leader is
Joon-pyo Koo (Min-ho Lee), who is a spoiled heir to world-leading conglomerate Shinhwa. He is joined by mysterious and breathlessly handsome Ji-hu Yun (Hyeon-jung Kim), Lee-jeong So (Kim Beom), and Woo-bin Song (Kim Jun). Their love story moves from Seoul to New Caledonia to Macau.
- Based on Yoko Kamio's Japanese shojo manga series "Hana yori Dango".
- The original Japanese title "Hana Yori Dango" or ""Boys Over
Flowers" is a pun on the Japanese old saying "Dumplings over flowers,"
referring to people who attend Hanami (flower festival), but instead of
enjoying flowers, focus more on the materialistic side of the event such
as getting food and buying souvenirs.
- Character names have been changed to reflect Korean setting, although the male group will still be known as "F4".
- Supporting actress Ja-yeon Jang, who played Sunny (one of the trio of Mean Girls), committed suicide on March 7, 2009.
- Episode 17. originally scheduled to air Monday - March 9th,
aired instead on Tuesday March 10th. This was caused by a car accident
involving main actress Hye-seon Ku. Ku while returning from to Seoul
from Changwon, South Gyeongsang province after a shoot early Friday
morning was involved in a car accident. She received three stiches in
her mouth after the accident. Ku is expected to resume shooting next
week and a "Boys Over Flowers" special aired instead on Monday March
