Currently Watching: Hana Yori Dango

When was the last time you saw high school dramas? I believe mine was Ma Boy, which was back in mid 2013. *facepalm* Now, I cannot believe I’m watching another high school drama. I’m at this age where high school drama theme should not  be in my watch anymore. Amuden, I got sucked in by my Kakao girls into watching Hana Yori Dango. Peer pressure is surprisingly work for some of us *points finger at myself*. But you know, I realize I must complete the the three country series anyway. I saw Meteor Garden years and years back. I loved the show and I don’t remember back then if the show was draggy or not, but the time flew by so fast I had a major withdrawal then. And then there’s Boys Over Flowers, the over-the-top, super dramatic I-Can’t-Believe-I-Saw-It twice! Don’t get shocked… I may have underestimate it… more than twice *sticks her tongue out*. Yes, yes… throw me into the shame room, please. *shrugs* I had to watch it for…. research, ya know *laughs*.

And  back to Hana Yori Dango, besides the peer pressure I went through, I realized I must watch it anyway. So far, it’s a lukewarm and I’m not as thrilled as I thought I would. I already know the story line so I don’t feel moved or touched. The boys are cute however. I recognized them all. So is the girl. Other than that, I have no feeling for this drama. Yeap, it is time for me to move on and steer away from high school theme unless if it were made recently.

This is a 9-episode series drama and I have seen 5 episodes so far. When compared to Meteor Garden and Boys Over Flower, Hana Yori is the second best of all three. I still prefer Meteor Garden. Boys Over Flowers though… *ducks from BoF fans* I shall zip my mouth *laughs*. Hmmmm do I need to get into the details? A little bit? Well, here it goes. Hana Yori Dango told a story of Tsukushi, a poor student in an elite school that is ruled by the gangsta yet handsome 4 boys they called themselves F4. Tsukushi fell in love with Rui, one of the sweetest and reserved F4 boy but the arrogant leader, Tsukasa started to develop a feeling for her. Tsukushi couldn’t believe Tsukasa would have this love feeling towards her after what he had done to her in school. Must I go on? This is painful…

Would I recommend it? Unless if they decide to remake this show again and giving a new life and air, I don’t think so. At least it is not for my taste… It’s cute and corny but just not my cup of tea. Sorry. Next drama please… *shrugs*

  1. Aw, I remember really liking Hana Yori Dango!! But then again, I watched that years ago, and if I went back to it now, I can’t say whether I’d still like it as much. STILL. You watched the awful, awful BOF TWICE? So you – GASP! – actually PREFER BOF to HYD?? Oh my! 😄

    • Stop! Quit judging me! 😄 Of all three, HYD is the second best. BOF of course is the most awful one… It’s almost paradise in a bad way that sucked me in twice (or more)! Lol

      • You know how much this drama annoys me, lol. But I swear I am going to struggle through the last episodes so I can do the blog on all 3 of them. And I’ll try to find something nice to say. I’ve watched BOF 3 times and some episodes over in addition. It is my favorite in many ways but I enjoy MG too just as much in a different way. I’ve watched it twice, and I watched the 2nd season also.

          • I think you should probably finish this one, watch something else, and then if you feel the need to watch S2, go for it. Isn’t there a movie too? I’m not going to be able to watch the S2 even though I’d like to for blogging purposes.
