[Before K-Drama] Boys Over Flowers!

It's time for another "Before K-Drama" where we talk about what dramas were originally (webtoon, manga, book, etc)

I'm pretty sure you all have heard of this little drama:

Boys Over Flowers:

It is based on Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango (花より男子) written by Yoko Kamio.
There have been Japanese, Taiwanese, Indian, and, of course, a Korean remake! Most of them have had not only drama versions but also full length films! (It's called Meteor Garden in Taiwanese!)
The Korean version, "Boys Over Flowers," is usually people's first K-drama and if you haven't seen it then you've definitely heard of it t least once! (Also, I don't know why Jan-di's legs are cut off in this photo hahaha)
I actually watched Hana Yori Dango (the Japanese remake) completely by accident! My parents were trying to get me my first ever Korean DVD for Christmas and sort of failed ;P But it ended up being a good thing!
They thought they got me Boys Over Flowers, but they got me the movie version of Hana Yori Dango! And it was sooo good! (Like, cheesy Japanese drama good, so...hahah)
I haven't watched the drama yet though :D
I haven't seen Meteor Garden (the Taiwanese version) either even though this was the first drama version of the manga!

Which of these have you seen or read!?

and if you havent seen any...

Tagging my "Before K-Drama" folks!

I've seen all 3. Jap ver is better than Korean ver, but I still LOVE Kim Bum. And the Tai ver I feel was the worse. I had too many feelz and wanted to kill someone. Just too many emotions and FINALLY he regained his memory to wayyy longer than hoped. Still can't believe I watched that whole thing. But over all if ppl like Kdramas more they should watch BOF then Hans Yori Dango and if they REALLY want more pain in their life....they can also watch Meteor Garden. Honestly after a while you just want to see what's happening in his friends lives starting to care almost nothing about him because he still hadn't regained his memory. Okay enough of my rant:)
I loved the manga. I remember reading the entire series in like a week. I've seen the anime, the Korean drama, the Japanese drama, and the Taiwanese version. If I had to choose my favorite drama adaption, I would probably choose the Japanese version.
I watched the Japanese version and the Korean version and I love them both but I haven't read manga yet.
I have only watched the Korean version of Boys Over Flowers
yeah, why is this constantly everyone's first drama? its weird XD

If BTS Were in Boys Over Flowers
Now, I think there are a lot of things wrong with the plot of BoF (mainly the boys treat Jan-di like crap) but its still funto imagine it as a less problematic drama. Here's who I'd cast! Gu Jun Pyo - Suga The leader of the F4 and heir to the Shinhwa Group, one of the biggest companies in South Korea. He is hot-tempered and believes that there is nothing that money can't buy. Though he's unable to express his feelings, deep down, he has a heart of gold. He torments Jan-di after she stands up to his bullying ways, but ends up falling in love with her and will do anything to protect her. Yoon Ji Hoo - V A member of the F4 and the grandson of a former president of Korea. He has a driving phobia after being involved in a car accident that killed his parents and left him the only survivor. He is initially in love with his childhood friend Seo-hyun, who helped him overcome his social anxiety. Calm and gentle, his musical talent catches Jan-di's attention and she begins to develop feelings for him. So Yi Jung - Jungkook A member of the F4 and a skilled potter. His family owns the country's biggest art museum. After losing his first love to his brother, he becomes a Casanova. He eventually changes his playboy ways when he realizes that he likes Ga-eul. Song Woo Bin A member of the F4, his family runs the country's largest construction company, which Woo-bin later admits has strong connections to organized crime. However, he has excellent business sense and is very charismatic. He's a super nice guy that happens to be a gangster lol and of course RM, Jin, and Jimin are the dad, mom, and little brother :) How would you cast BOF?
