[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

K-Drama Kisses That Stole My Heart
So I wanted to do this game that was created by @kpopandkimchi because it looked fun!!! Here is my list of my favorite K-Drama kiss scenes!!! (Note: The pic above is from Fabulous Boys, the Taiwanese version of You're Beautiful.) 1. Playful Kiss (Korean Version) starring Jung So-min and Kim Hyun-joong The way he teases her about forgetting him is so cute. 2. Mischievous Kiss (Japanese Version) starring Honoka Miki and Yuki Kurukawa I love this one...... 3. Love Rain starring Jung Ha Na and Jang Keun-suk I fangirled so hard when I saw this scene. I must have replayed it at least a dozen times. 4. Coffee Prince starring Yoon Eun-hye and Gong Yoo Probably one of the sexiest kiss scenes I have seen yet..... 5. Bride Of The Century starring Yung Jin-sung and Lee Hung-gi One of the most sensual kiss scenes I have seen involving Hong-gi. 6. Princess Hours starring Yoon Eun-hye and Ju Ji-hoon Seeing two people coming to terms that they are absolutely in love with each other is enough to make anyone swoon. 7. Flower Boy Next Door starring Park Shin-hye and Yoon Shi-yoon I just love Park Shin-hye in this k-drama and this scene when he returns to her is so sweet. So there you have it. That is my list so far. It might change since I just started Orange Marmalade. Lol but tell me what ya think of these scenes?!?! I ♡ ya my K-Drama/K-Pop family!!!! @majesticx @punkpandabear @Hollyrose19 @VixenViVi @aliciasalinas @CaibraeElane @amandamuska @AimeeH @edway66 @TheKS3D @jimjammin @kpopandkimchi @B1A4BTS5ever @ReddViolet @bts486 @ninachan @KatieRussell @KpopGaby @Foxxjinxx @SaraHanna @MissCandyFreak @Marilovexoxo @SHINee808 @Exoexo @IlseJimenez @luotl88 @lilybaby @BluBear07 @B2STANG88 @AngelJoong86 @Emealia (Tag me if you've done yours!!!
