F4 Fever Is Back
Yes! The Flower Four fever is back and this time, the fever is brought by the Korean Flowers with their Korean TV series on ABS-CBN entitled “Boys over Flowers”. It brings more fun and excitement especially to the teens. The three Chies are actually suffering the fever right now. Yes, the 3 Chies, meaning it includes me. I am not a teenager but I can’t believe I still giggle and scream with excitement together with my sisters just because of this teen show, just like before, way back in 2001-2003 with “Meteor Garden”. Oh my, I exactly feel like a teenager for two weeks now. I thought I have already overcome the F4 fever but I was wrong.
Boy over Flowers is the Korean drama adaptation of the Japanese manga entitled “Hana Yori Dango” corresponding to the Taiwanese drama, Meteor Garden (aired on ABS-CBN) and the Japanese TV series, Hana Yori Dango. The story runs in the life of a middle-class girl, Geum Jan Di who was given a special scholarship to study in the prestigious Shinhwa high school after saving the life of a student who was about to commit suicide after receiving a red card from the F4.
