Meteor Garden (2018)

Meteor Garden 2018 Stills
After spouting many successful adaptations from the 2001 Taiwanese drama to the more recent Korean Drama Boys Over FlowersMeteor Garden 流星花园 which is based on the manga Hana Yori Dango is a drama that needs no introduction as it follows the typical poor girl meets rich guy romance in the setting of an ultra exclusive school.

Its cast of newcomers led by Shen Yue, Dylan Wang, Darren Chen, Connor Leung and Caesar Wu has been creating buzz from the day they were introduced as they've done magazine shoots and product endorsements, not to mention numerous promos for the drama itself. Filming has been ongoing for three months and despite it being the umpteenth retelling of the same story, I'm so onboard for another ride.

A lot of attention usually goes to the handsome hunks playing F4 for obvious reasons though I'm really liking Shen Yue as the plucky heroine and quite convinced that she would shine as Shan Cai, maybe even better than her predecessors who have tackled the same role. We get a glimpse of one scene where she's crying and she seems pretty darn expressive. 

Release Date: Summer 2018

  1. Very excited for this one. I have only seen the other version 10 years after they came out (the outdated fashion a distraction). It will be interesting to see it fresh and in a 2018 setting.

  2. I'm really looking forward to this... I pretty confident Shen Yue will do a good job. I really hope the F4 can act especially Dylan.

    1. Me too! It would be awesome if the acting perfect with no cringing (I'm thinking the Korean version). I hope is turns out to be one of the best dramas this year.
