    Sypnosis

    Ellison University is a school that caters to the children from families who are rich, famous, high-society or all of the above. Every year, they hold auditions to accept students who are super talented in different areas and give them a full scholarship to attend the University.
    Zoey, a dancer from a middle class family gets accepted. On her first day she discovers that things aren't as perfect as she thought they would be when she witnesses a string of extremely harsh bullying from the leaders of the school. Determined to stay out of the way and ignore the situation, she is forced to stand up to the bullies known as F4. After a series of events, she eventually earns their respect and the love of their leader, Liam.
    Between Boys & Friends is loosely inspired by the widely popular Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango.

    The producers said that this will be based on Hana Yori Dango manga rather than the Korean Boys Over Flowers.

     

    What do you think of this upcoming 'remake'? Do you think it will work or do you think it will be sacrilegious?

    Well... I don't tend to watch american series esp if it has a young cast, I just adore my forensics and crime... and sci-fi XD but this? I can't wait to watch it to see how it turns out? I'm not sure to be honest as America tends to like putting their own twist on things and the originality gets lost in transition eg The Office, the cast were too pretty and if you watched the English cast, they were plain. Ones whose faces you wouldn't remember even if you past them on the street everyday.

    But I hope it comes out well and I love the fact that they are basing it on the Japanese version and trying to stay true to the original as I personally feel this was the best version and I refuse to watch the others as my mouth won't stop. It won't stop abusing the screen :D

     

    I do hope everyone checks this out!! :D

    That's what I thought also. Usually, the Americans tend to change a lot of things. We'll just have to wait and see. Actually, I am looking forward to this.

    As an American, I think I can say this more directly:  Sometimes in America we make stuff suck.  Just compare the movies that John Woo has made since he came here to the ones he made in Hong Kong.

     

    But the real problem I see with this is that while we do have rich people in America, we don't have chaebol.  Everything in Boys Over Flowers is crazy enough to try to imagine in Korea or Japan.  It just doesn't even make any sense here.  When was the last time you heard about Bill Gates or Warren Buffet's kids?  Do they have any?  I don't even know.

    oh my gosh. this was real? i read it in LJ and some other sites. i don't really watch American series now but, it'll be good if this will turn out better than expected. and its nice that they decided to base it on the Japanese version :D but aren't they too old to be students? ...or not?

    hahaha. true. though, i'd like to see how they pull it off :)

     

    the cast were too pretty and if you watched the English cast, they were plain. Ones whose faces you wouldn't remember even if you past them on the street everyday.

    hahaha. true. i'd like to see how they all look when all F4s and Makinos are lined up. i agree that they're plain, really different from Japanese and Korean and maybe Taiwan. but maybe if you really watch it you'll have different impression. hahaha

     

    I refuse to watch the others as my mouth won't stop. It won't stop abusing the screen :D

    HAHAHA. i can't stop laughing from this. hahaha :D you're so biased, Amy. and poor screen. LOL  :panda_cheeky_laugh:  :panda_cheeky_laugh:

    Well, i don't think that will be so good as the korean version. At least, In korean version, there was a lot of innocent love, romantic script, pure and honorables characters. US teenager movies are only about a sly who is bullyng a nerd or a macho-man who is fucking a glasses girl, or ignorant losers who are seen like great guys. Oh, like American Pie movies.

    They only have the power to be really annoying.  We don't have to be afraid of them.  We don't have to think "oh no, I better not piss off Paris Hilton because she can ruin my life on a whim."  But if you're in Korea and you piss off the little prince of Samsung, he owns 15% of the country.

    As always straight to the point. Just my thoughs... that's why I'm somehow really scared about this production...

    Just saw some of the first ep. It was pretty puke-worthy. Not to mention, the total lack of a soundtrack made it even worse. I can't stop laughing at how bad it was.
