Boys Over Flowers – Review

23 Jan

Boys over flowers, K-Drama with 25 episode, is a journey to go along with the characters Geum Jan Di (Goo Hye Sun) – a normal, poor girl with full spark and passion for her dreams and F4 (flowers four) – Gu Jun Pyo (Lee Min Ho); Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong); So Yi Jeong (Kim Bum); Song Woo Bin (Kim Joon), the filthy rich gang and sweethearts of Shinawa high school.

Geum Jan Di with F4

Story starts with the Shinhwa high school scene, where Jan Di carries Laundry clothes of a Shinhwa student and unexpectedly met  a suicide attempt by the guy, for whom she done laundry, was about to throw himself from the top of building. She saved him and become overnight ‘Wonderwomen’ with her bravery. This event turns the wheel of her life to an unimaginable direction and trigger feud with F4. She gets in to the school with ‘Wonderwomen’ status and her swimming skill as add-on.

Geum Jan Di

Jan Di – F4 encounter starts when Jan Di smash ice cream in Jun Pyo’s face and drives him nuts, while other 3 amused by that act. From that incident Jan-Di often got some kind of torment because of Jun-Pyo, but Ji Hoo comes as savior all the time for her. Ji-Hoo posses some extra quality which doesn’t prevail in other F4’s, this drags Jan-Di’s heart towards Ji-Hoo on the go. Yoon Ji Hoo is character that every woman will fall for, no wonder Geum Jan Di falls for him

Gu Jun Pyo

Gu Jun Pyo

In Episode 2, Jan-Di was abducted by few fellow students set by Jun-Pyo, right then before something went wrong,  Ji-Ho appears and casually clarifying about the pancake recipe is real fun to watch. Another to quote is, when the fun on her went intolerable, she straightly goes to the F4’s lobby and kicking against Jun-Pyo’s face is one of the best and entertaining scenes to watch.  OMG… here starts another turn… with one kick Jun-Pyo’s heart starts singing for Jan-Di and he thinks that Jan-Di was infatuated with him. Even some scenes seem so unrealistic, that doesn’t restrict to love this drama.

Yoon Ji Hoo

Some of the notable and sweet scenes everyone will enjoy are of Jun Pyo -Jan Di- Ji Hoo triangle love, and in later part Kim Bum-Ga Eul combination. Ever wondered??How heaven look like?? See the places Jeju Island, New Caledonia and Macau which appears in this drama… real eye candy to watch.

On the go, this drama hijacks your heart and brain totally with expectations of ‘what’s next’. “Life is not a cake walk. Making our dream into reality is not an easy task. The path will be full of ups and downs, but when you are focused, struggles are the way to destiny.” This is the message the whole drama gives for the viewers with appealing twist and turns. So why waiting… take a journey with these amazing characters ;)

    I am from Zimbabwe and I’ve just started to watch the drama. The love story is really great. Though I thought Kim Bum is too cute for his role. Maybe its just me.
