17. Hana Yori Dango 花より男子 (2005) Japanese

Inoue MaoMatsumoto Jun, Oguri ShunMatsuda Shota , Abe Tsuyoshi

Drama Rating: 5/10     Neck Score: A

The Japanese version of Boys Over Flowers, but actually based on the Taiwanese version and the manga.  So much better than the Korean version, but that isn't saying too much.  I just think that it shows the right flavor a bit more.  Also, it might help that I only watched the first season that didn't get to the amnesia part, which is the worst plot device ever.  However, I hear that it is handled closer to the manga which makes more sense then what was randomly thrown into the Korean BOF version.  Also, no offense to the Korean F4 who are super super hot, but when you have Matsumoto Jun and Matsuda Shota to compete with... well... they're just hotter.  Especially MatsudaShota, although he has really bad hair in Hana Yori Dango if I remember correctly... at least he does in the movie sequel of it... yes, I watched that too.
