Ask any Kdrama connoisseur to recommend a fan-favorite classic and one of them is bound to suggest Boys Over Flowers. Also known as “Boys before Flowers”, this iconic Kdrama hit is based on the Japanese manga of the same name.    The story centers on an average schoolgirl Jan Di (Kyu Hye Sun) and her confrontations with the four richest and most spoiled boys in her high school. Collectively, these four are known as the “F4”. Coming from a humble family in the dry-cleaning business, Jan Di only got into the prestigious and expensive Shin Hwa High School on a stroke of luck after saving the life of someone on the school’s property and receiving a swimming scholarship in reward.   Not one to stir up unnecessary trouble, Jan Di keeps to herself and tries to avoid interactions with rich kids like the F4. However, a turn of events occurs when Jan Di’s best friend Oh Min Ji (Lee Si Young) crosses Goo Joon Pyo (Lee Min Ho), the leader of the F4, by accidentally getting ice cream on his shoes. Jan Di decides that enough is enough and stands up for her friend against the group.   As it turns out, Jan Di discovers that there’s more to the members than their spoiled-boy façade and finds herself falling in love with one of them. At the same time, Goo Joon Pyo begins to battle his attraction towards her. How will this love triangle change the dynamics of the group?   Achieving sky-high ratings and bagging plenty of awards across Asia around the turn of the last decade, Boys Over Flowers will be a treat for anyone interested in the themes revolving around issues like socio-economic disparity, family ties, and the joys of love and friendship.   Get ready for addictive drama, romance, and comedy at its best! With a cast made of worldwide famous actors, this puppy love story is a must-watch for those into the world of kdramas.
