The craze is not over—Thailand’s GMM TV has dropped its first trailer on their own TV drama remake of the popular manga series Boys Over Flower.
Boys Over Flower, known in Japanese as Hana Yori Dango, was a shojo manga series serialized from 1992 to 2004. The protagonist is a teen girl who gets entangled with her school’s most popular boys, the “F4” (Flower Four), who are from wealthy and powerful families.
The manga reached international fame and recognition following the 2001 Taiwanese TV adaptation Meteor Garden <流星花園>, which produced the famous boy band F4. In 2005, Japan released its own TV adaptation, followed by South Korea’s Boys Over Flowers in 2009. In 2018 Angie Chai (柴智屏)—the original producer of Meteor Garden—re-adapted the series in China. GMM TV’s F4 Thailand: Boys Over Flowers will be the fifth official TV adaptation, and Thailand’s first adaptation of the series.
Newcomer Tu stars as Gorya (Makino Tsukushi), Bright as Thyme (Domyoji Tsukasa), Dew as Ren (Hanazawa Rui), Win as Kavin (Nishikado Sojiro), and Nani as M.J (Mimasaka Akira).
