one of my favourite actor ( Matsujun) playing the role of one af my favourite manga character ( domiyoji) !! i can't believe it. it's too good to be true !!!

i could only say that i 'm dying to see it ! even if it's bizarre to imagine Matsujun playing a "bad guy" after seeing his cute face in kimi wa pet.

The Japanese version hasn't even come out yet, and you already prefer the Taiwanese version? I didn't like the Taiwanese version too much, especially the second season because... well, it got a little too cheesy. Amnesia plots aren't my thing. :blink

More than likely, they'll be deviating from the existing plotlines that are out right now, just to keep it fresh. So, I'm still looking forward to it.

Well, the Taiwanese drama was based off of the Japanese Manga and Japanese Anime. It's only logical to have a Japanese version of the drama. :mrgreen:

Don't judge the drama until it's broadcasted and until you've actually watched it.

This is such a cool news. I didn't particularly like the manga nor did I like the Taiwanese version that much (the actings put me to sleep), but I'm definitely looking forward to the Jdrama XD I can't quite imagine Jun in the role as Tsukasa though, he just doesn't look the part. However, I think he's going to do just fine. Who is the girl who plays Makino? She's such a new face, I wonder what other series she has been in before. I am really anticipating this drama :D

I'm so looking forward to the jdrama of this, at least they won't dragg the story out no matter what.........anyway not likely to see a jdrama of Meteor Garden that's 50 something eps long haha

Sweet. Cant wait for this one. Although I am a fan of the Taiwanese version, I gotta admit that the acting was rough around the edges. I hope the Japanese version will fare better and that some of the guys will get a freakin haircut. It is Flower Four not Androgynous Four. :P

I hope everyone here realizes that in the manga there was an amnesia plot as well and stuff similar to the tiwanese drama. Also when i stooped reading this manga around 2 years ago it was still going at 32 or 34 books ro something. I wonder if it actually finished. Hopefully in this drama they try and end it early and not try and fir that massive ammount of Manga plot into 11, 45 min episiodes. If they do its just gunna suck and make no sense at all. :/

Everyone is saying they hope its gunna be the same the the characters are gunna be the same but they dont have the time to be exactly the same. There is only so much plot you can effictivly cover in a Japanese drama I hope they dont try to cover too much. There is so much they can do with this I hope it turns out good. :)

ohhh~ I can't wait! I love matsumoto jun and oguri shun, it'll definitely be better than ''meteor garden''. The acting was not so great in that drama (though some of the casts acting has improved recently), so the japanese version will definitely be better imo.

Yes! OMG! The Manga for Hana Yori Dango is the best out of:

Manga <-- Feel in love with all the characters (xcept Tsukasa's Mum... ****...)
Anime <-- Was actually really crappy quality, compared to Manga was horrendous + today's Anime standards.. OST? :unsure:
Taiwan Drama <-- Didn't like because couldn't understand Canto + Acting so-so

And Matsujun!!!! ::dies:: How he'll act the bad guy?? .. Dunno but can't wait!

Please someone!!! Sub This!!! ::beggs:: :cry:

And yes the Manga is completed, 36 Volumes

Nope. I told her I'd leave first. Because if she threw me away, I would've felt like dying.

:O ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?!?! :O this is great!!!!!!!!! I love HYD and meteor garden and F4. if it was any other actor i would have been bias about the series since i was soooo in-love with F4. But when i heard it would be played by Matsumoto Jun :wub: , I love it already! I hope the story would cover more on the manga (hopefully past the parts from MG1). Also, i hope there will be some kind souls out there that will be willing to sub this, i will be forever grateful :-)

I love the Taiwan version of Hana yori Dango!

I thought that Da S, Zai Zai and Jerry were awesome :D

Even though MG II was badly executed, I loved how they gave Ken and Vaness more attention.

I loved how in MR they covered the side story of Ken's character and San Cai's friend :D

I am huge fan of F4 especially of Ken and Zai Zai!

I think Jun will play Tsukasa well, but the guy who is gonna be Rui kinda don't look too hot :P

YES! Finally some good stuff, not like the "meteor garden" crappy Taiwanese copycat thingy.. Japan has always been the best with dramas, and it'll surely be like that this time too. Taiwan has so lousy music, bad with camera work.. and it makes it boring to watch.. Well, this will be grat!!

I, on the other hand, don't think ZaiZai is that good looking. Oguri Shun looks the part, I bet he will do well, and he's hot enough to be in the role. When an actor acts well, even with an average look, he's still be able to carry out the "hotness" of the character. Shun has proven he is a good actor. We shall see :P .

I watched the Hana Yori Dango anime and the Tawainese drama, and I have to say, the anime was not nearly as good as the drama(I was falling asleep with the anime). The drama was soo hilarious, and give this actors a break: they are all new(they weren't even trained, like Zai Zai was first casted when he was in Engineering school) so you can't expect them to be perfect actors, and I think his acting has improved alot over the years. It's not like these professional actors in this Jdrama(who have starred in many tv series), its like comparing apples to oranges. So ppl please, stop the bashing. I bet very few people can act as well as those in Meteor Garden without ever tried it before.

I can't wait for another drama to be made out of it, but I wonder if they have to cut out parts as this version is prob only 11-12 episodes while the tawainese ver is 27 episodes. Or maybe they'll extend it like they did with Gokusen but then we have to wait a while?

Im really liked Meteor Garden!!
Ok.. isn´t the best actors ever... but they do a good job
is funny and totally like the manga
The HYD anime only follow the manga until vol18
Meteor Garden didn´t follow all manga because Hyd manga hans´t finished, so stoped in 33 vol
all HYd manga has 36 vols.
I really like Meteor Garden, i even make my friends wacth! ^^
I think that Zai Zai is so a good actor
he is totally diferent in Mars..
and when you wacth Mars you can see all effort from him to make Lei...
his personality is so different... so carefree
But i'm really look for the New Drama!!!
Matsumoto Jun as Tsukasa will be so cool!!!!!!
He is a wondeful actor!

When an actor acts well, even with an average look, he's still be able to carry out the "hotness" of the character. Shun has proven he is a good actor. We shall see :P .
point taken. :lol
have to watch it, to find out. haha

Actually, I got my guy friends hooked onto this drama, and both my mother and my brother was watching this non-stop. And my brother never watch any dramas except Long Vacation and Meteor Garden. So, you're def missing out. And the Barbie(Shan Cai, main actress) is eye-candy for the guys I think, and Shan Cai's parents, Qin He and others are a riot, they are soo hilarious. In short, you should watch Meteor Garden. Live action drama is the way to go, mangas are like pics on a page, and I'd already seen the anime, which sucked.

I still can't believe that they'll be doing this Jdorama w/ Jun & Shun in it :O ...It's like a dream series for me. Plus the fact that...at last Shun has taken a much bigger role...He's done so many different characters before and I know he will be good also in this one :-)

as i was re-reading your post, i thought of something.
If i remember well ( and i DO ) in the tome 8, the F4 especially Rui and Tsukasa have a basketball match in order to decide who should be expelled. This is where i think it's a little bizzare : How can they make the cute-tiny-Matsujun ( who he's about 1.70 m - remember from kimiwapet....) pose as an almost pro basketball player.
The taiwanese F4 was far more realist for this, but less cute.....

I would love to see the drama version of Hana Yori Dango! Seeing Meteor Garden 1 and 2 and the anime. I hope this version of the manga will be just a good.

This is, of course, coming from an Oguri Shun fan but...

I think Shun would do wonderfully in this role...even when compared to Vic Zhou. Granted I've only seen Vic Zhou in Poor Prince Taro Episode 1 and wasn't very fond of his interpretation of the character. But I've seen Shun in Summer Snow, Gokusen, Stand Up, Azumi 1 and Azumi 2 and he is a talented actor who has taken on a range of characters. In the movie RINJIN JUUSANGO, he plays a guy with split personality. One personality is timid while the other is psychotic. And, remembering him from Azumi 1, I'm confident that he can play the mysterious and quiet Rui.

Sure, Vic Zhou is attractive. But I also think that Shun is very attractive. I still sigh over his character from Gokusen (Uchi).

Hello everybody!

Well, I have to confess that I am a newbie in watching asian dramas but I have been an anime/manga fan since I was 5 years old.
HYD is one of the best sories I ever read; I was so excited and touched with the characters....and then my friend, Makino-sanbr, showed me the taiwanese drama, meteor garden. I love it - I finally finished watching yeasterday -;I am especially impresssed with that wonderful Zai Zai! * still dreaming of meeting him in the real life*
And now I am even more excited with the HYd j-drama! It will be a new version with a lot new emotions! It hasn´t to be exactly like the taiwanese drama - nor the manga -, I think, since it will be an tv adaptation. I think we can expect a lot of new scenes and atotally different interpretation from the actors.
And I love the japonese languague! I will finally be able to sing the opening and the ending themes! *so excited*.
Well, I am too looking forward to watch it!

Hi!
I understand you Shun-fan... really...
Because i also like Oguri ... I think that he is a very good actor... I already saw him in some Dramas...
But i also think that Zaizai is a very good actor...
I firts saw him in Meteor Garden.. and i thought that he as boring as Rui ( sorry i have troubles with Rui.. because I love very very very much Tsukasa)
But when I saw him in Mars... he as other person... He was Rei ( the main character from Mars manga) He was really like Rei... make me like him so much.. that after wacthing all Mars i can say that I'm a huge Zaizai Fan
Now I'm wacthing him in Love storm, together with Ken.

I wanna see the Rui that Oguri will do.... :w00t:

and also.. just like Paula I love japanese llanguague!
And I wanna sing the opening and the ending themes! too!!!!
*so excited too*.
:mrgreen:

Shun is a great actor. I noticed him first in GTO, he was the kid who got beat up all the time. Then in Summer Snow, I almost thought he had lost his hearing in RL! I wish he had had a bigger part in Gokusen... But now at last I can see him in a very BIG role! :D And IMHO, he is HOTHOTHOT :wub: and so very worthy of taking up screen space next to Matsumoto Jun.

I am almost positive there are going to be enough fansubbers out there who are going to want to sub this drama.. it gets so much attention here on our little board. ^_^ If not the usual dorama fansubbers, then we can expect it from the hardcore anime subbers. [HYD was a good anime for its time.]

Knowing me I will probably watch it in raw form, since I can understand 30-60% without subtitles. If only I was good enough to BE the fansubber... :w00t:

Hope you're right. It would be great to have it subbed quickly! :clap: I can't wait! I've heard so many good things about this drama so far, and I love the manga! I've watched some of meteor garden, but when you're watching a borrowed tape that isn't subbed, it's a bit hard to understand. :sweat: I'm hoping that HYD live action lives up to all this hype.

I agree! Though I like Matsumoto Jun, I already fell in love with everything about Meteor Garden. With this new drama I will only be comparing the two, even without meaning to. I don't think I will like it very much. :-(

This is inevitable. I know very well that this Jdrama version of Meteor Garden shall be the subject for comparison to the Twdrama, considering how popular Meteor Garden and F4 are in Asia. The actors knew of this as well, and Shun even said that he will make his character slightly different than the one that is portrayed by Vic of F4. With only 11-12 episodes to film, at least this drama would have less of the cheesiness MG has though, lol XD. The only thing that I hope is that they don't rush things or alter the structure of the original manga much or else, it would be very irritated to watch.

And yea, I hope people don't get overhyped over this news and later then find out that the drama doesn't live up to their expectation.

Wow! currently the most anticipated jdrama eh? I'd like to say that I'll probably like the jdrama version more than MG, even w/o watching the former, but that would be dumb of me.
I didn't like the tw version that much...bcoz...of yes, the cheesiness factor, and barbie's acting is kinda annoying. The only thing I love about MG I is the opening song...

On the contrary with the other comments, I can just picture Matsumoto Jun acting as Tsukasa...since he did a nice job acting as the "leader of the pack" in Gokusen. Although if Oguri and Jun switched roles, I wouldn't mind at all. He is taller than Jun, and those short flashes they show of him in Densha~~kakkoi :w00t:
