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!
