Well, it says Boys Over Flowers but, to be honest, this is a JanHoo zone (Jan Di/Ji Hoo).
This couple, quite honestly, has been it for me since the very beginning. I first watched the ‘Hana Yori Dango’ Japanese drama and got stuck with Tsukushi and Rui. After that, I devoured the Hana Yori Dango manga, and was left even more convinced that those two deserved to be together. I checked the Taiwanese version ‘Meteor Garden’ (2001) and liked very much the interaction between San Cai and Hua Ze Lei. (Barbie Hsu and Vic Chou are amazing!)
When the Korean version, ‘Boys Over Flowers’, came out in 2009, I resisted to watch it because, for me, Oguri Shung e Inoue Mao just couldn’t be surpassed.
A couple of years later, I was proved wrong…
I was so, so, so enamoured with Jan Di and Ji Hoo, that I simply snapped and I had to write how I believed their story should have been. I laughed out loud with Koo Hye Sun and, to this day, I’m a fan of Kim Hyun Joong.
And that was how, the idea of these two got forever stuck in my head and they will forever be one of my favorites OTP.
