2009 Boys Over Flowers (Korea)
2005 Hana Yori Dango (Japan)
2001 Meteor Garden (Taiwan)
Meteor Garden and its subsequent adaptations are about a girl who is struggling to make ends meet. Through a chance encounter, she ends up attending a prestigious high school where a group of students from the richest and most powerful families of the country rule the school.
It's a typical story about a mean guy who eventually falls for the girl that he torments yet it is the characters and their good looks that make the story so appealing such that so many swoon over F4.
If I had to nitpick, well I think men should always be gentlemanly and frankly the Flower 4 and their lackeys are such bullies.
Also worth mentioning are the stories they setup for the supporting characters and the actors who portray them.
So many memorable scenes, if you want to reminisce: See here for a complete list of Top Korean Dramas and Korean Historical Dramas.
I was browsing through some websites until I came across Bull Fighting (Dou Niu Yao Bu Yao), a Taiwanese drama starring Mike He and Hebe Tian in 2008. It was such a good drama back then but I remember feeling a sense of deja vu that reminded me of Meteor Garden.
