So far, there had been 5 adaptations of the manga: Meteor Garden (CTS Taiwan) 2001; Hana Yori Dango (TBS Japan) 2005; Boys Over Flowers (KBS Korea) 2009; Meteor Shower (Hunan TV China) 2009; and Bunga (Astro Ria Malaysia) 2009. I had seen all except the Chinese and the Malaysian one and truthfully, I’m surprised there’s a Malaysian adaptation. No wonder Philippines is making one. They don’t want to lose.
Anyway, the title of the Filipino version is Brat Boys Beyond. Now, I don’t now who came up with that one. But why didn’t they just translated Boys Before Flowers to Filipino?
Hmm.. Mga Lalaki Bago Bulaklak… Ugh. I guess Brat Boys Beyond is sooo much better. Hay~ I guess we should just wait and see what’s going to happen. But while I’m waiting, I’ll be checking out the possible actors for the leads.
My brother’s blog says that Maja Salvador is the favorite for the role of Makino. But another site said that Sarah Geronimo is confirmed to be taking the role. Well, no one really fits the role. But what the heck? See their pictures and decide for yourself. as for Sarah Geronimo…
Is it obvious that I don’t like her?
