Hana Yori Dango (JP). Another romantic tangle between a school student and 2 of a 4man team, called the flowers four. the feisty female lead does express Ehh?! and huh?!! really well. lol! I rather liked the different personalities of the male lead and the fair-haired rival/friend. hot tempered, to cool reserve. A girl, of the poor variety joins a school of a richer variety and runs afoul of a group/gang of rich guys known throughout the school as the F4. tempers flair from all sides as two of the guys take a liking to her... through reactions and resistance to their picking.

Boys Over Flowers(KR) has something to crow jubilantly about here. A very good and deeply involved storyline for nearly all characters. only question I wasn't too clear on was just how they managed to get the biddy to lay off of their lives. I mean, sure, she was shaken a bit by the accident, but surely that would just make her all the more resolved to have it work out the way she planned, like, yesterday. And even if it had shut her down temporarily, considering the tenaciousness she had shown through-out the series up to that point, she surely had a bit more to show in power. Then again, maybe the dad's reawakening had changed a lot before she could get back into the vengeance thing. so ok, the ending was a little bit weak. Felt a little sorry for the truly untouchable guy, being the gangster, but then, he also depended on the other guys for a bit of mental support. Fav character(s): at one point or another I liked most of the characters.
