Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Jan Di is an average girl whose family owns a dry cleaning store located near the luxurious and well known Shin Hwa College. Jan Di meets the four richest and most spoiled boys known as the F4. After saving a boy from jumping off the roof of Shinhwa High School, she is admitted into the school on a swimming scholarship. Jan Di tries to avoid confrontation with the F4 at all cost because she knows what happens to those that stand against them. However, when Jan Di's friend, Oh Min Ji, accidentally gets ice cream on the leader of the F4's shoes, she's forced to declare war on the leader of the F4, Goo Joon Pyo.
Bad chemistry my ass!
Love this drama! The characters are hot, the girl is a strong, PRETTY, main lead who doesn’t take crap from anyone. I’m constantly frustrated when ugly female leads end up with hot male ones. Can we please be a little more realistic here? The girl also isn’t bullied around by the guy, which would NEVER happen in real life. We all know that the guy is supposed to be whipped.
The chemistry between Jan Di and Gu Jun Pyo is cute, but is not 100% gushy true love romance. Which is a refreshing change. They are a high school couple, it’s natural that they’d be a little awkward. And it’s the first long term relationship for both of them! I personally thing that the awkwardly cute moments that they have make them a much more believable and interesting couple.
I watched a couple episodes of Hana Yori Dango, but I could not get over how BAD the main lead was. Her self narrating bothered me sooooo much, and I hated how ugly the drama was overall. The guys were also horrendous on the eyes. It looked like a crappy production, and I don’t even want to bother to watch the Taiwanese one, considering how unrealistic it is that a large global conglomerate would be in Taiwan.
Also, it seems that a lot of reviewers started watching the drama, already thinking "Wow, the main is so old, she’ll never play a good highschooler." I thought her highschooler interpretation was fine. Not every highschooler acts like a naive, retardedly romantic 14 year old. She was in high school once, I’m sure she knows what it’s like and 25 isn’t even that old. Seriously, keep your biases and your jealousy to yourself. :/.
