HYD vs. BBF Introduction

So hopefully if you’re reading this, you’re familiar with asian dramas. You know what’s going on in Korea, Japan, Taiwan and all those other asian countries and you know what’s going on with their pop culture. One of the most recent asian dramas that’s caused a lot of hype is the Korean drama known as Boys Before Flowers. It first aired in January of this year (2009) and became an instant hit. However, in 2005, the Japanese made their own version of this storyline called Hana Yori Dango which gained a lot of popularity as well. This storyline is based off of a Japanese manga that was released in the early 1990s.

If you haven’t watched either of these dramas, here’s a quick summary: Basically, there’s this poor girl that goes to a school full of rich kids that come from the most powerful families of their country. The school is ruled by these four guys that go by the name of F4. They’re the richest kids in their country and basically control the school. If you get on their bad side, they will issue you a red notice in your locker which basically means you become prey for the entire school. So one day, the poor girl stands up to F4 after the leader bullies her friend. The very next day, she recieves a red notice. Consequently, the school bullies her constantly. However, being the tough girl she is, she decides to endure the pain. This gains the attention of 2 of the members of F4. One is the kind of shy, quiet guy and the other is the leader. This causes an intense love triangle between the three of them, one of which has the potential to drastically impact their country.

Now, I love both of these dramas very much, but i’ve noticed that a lot of the fans (including me) are arguing over which one is better. So, out of my curiousity, i’ve decided to find out which one is truly better. I’ve broken down each drama into categories and i’ll be comparing each drama based on these categories (they include comparing the actors and actresses and some of the most iconic scenes that make the drama). Whichever drama is better in a certain category, that drama will earn a point. The drama with the most points at the end will win and be dubbed the better of the two! Also, when i compare the popular scenes, hopefully i’ll be able to provide you guys with footage of those scenes so you can revisit them and watch them again :]

Please leave your input and comment on the categories when they’re released! I absolutely love discussing dramas with my friends and I’d like to hear everyone’s opinion. So stay tuned to my blog and follow along so we can finally end the Hana Yori Dango vs. Boys Before Flowers war!!!

peace, hydandbbfanalyst
