Boys Over Flower (US Version) - First Impression
So, yesterday I found out through @kpopandkimchi's card there was a BOF Us Version as told by @Anna5221 and @Kamiamon. I was curious and watch the first two episodes.
I was dying of laughter. Here is why:

<<< EPISODE 1 >>>

Summary: Zoey got accepted to a prestigious private school as a dance major, met the rich, "Fortunate 4" and got bullied for standing up for her friend.
What you need to know...
He is F4 leader, Liam. He's suppose to be a basketball player and secret UFC fighter. 馃槀
She is Zoey. She's a very passionate dancer. Almost all 40 minutes is about her dancing. All day. Everyday. 馃拑
The Type of Bullies:
1. Tripping people (which looks really fake).
2. Haircut.
3. Caking the face.
Drama begins: Zoey stands up for her friend and calls him the "b*****d of the lowest order". The next day, Zoey gets terrorized...
...WITH WAX. What kind of wax did they put to get her glide or twitch like that?
So obviously, the worst scene came up when three guys tried to gang rape her but she eventually got saved by American KHJ.
That slap though.

<<< EPISODE 2 >>>

Summary: Liam is very angry at the three guy's mistake and tries to compensate Zoey with his "kindness".

Kindness #1 : Embarrassed the three guys.

Totally not working.

Kindess #2: Give her a makeover and make her his secret GF.

Note: This was the most confusing scene for me. They changed the actress after the makeover scene.
Obviously, not working either.

I can't go beyond episode 3 because the acting was cringe-worthy.

I was actually looking forward to the kick.

(as shown on all three drama versions).

But, in the American version, the water splash is the kick.

Happens in almost every episode I watched.

Final Thoughts:

This was a low-budget production so I didn't expect it to be super high quality. Actually, if you see this as a parody, it might not be so bad.
