The Korean version of <Meteor Garden> broadcasted its first episode on Sunday with an average rating of 1.33%, which is only one fifth of <My Queen>’s. Ethan Ruan defeats Korean F4, making Korea’s <Meteor Garden> lose in the battle between Taiwan and Korea. Fans are trying hard to help promote <Boys Over Flowers> on the web, while criticizing CTV for cutting too many scenes, horrible Mandarin dubbing, and switching insert songs, making <Boys Over Flowers> lose its original flavor.

It’s not the first time the dubbing has been criticized when Korean dramas are broadcasted in Taiwan. Although the dubbing is to service the majority of viewers, due to cultural differences, the Mandarin dubbing often hinders viewers from getting into the drama. Viewer, Jen says, “Lee Min Ho’s sexy and raspy voice is gone…Jan Di’s voice sounds fake, and isn’t the voice dub for Kim Hyun Joong too girly?”

In addition, the insert songs are different from the original broadcasted version in Korea, which has lead to big disapproval from the audience shouting out, “No feel”. A netizen wrote, “I’m very disappointed after watching the first episode. I think this is too much. I was already very upset with the fact that it’s dub, but I never thought that they would also change the insert songs as well.” The viewers are also questioning as to why the scenes where Goo Joon Pyo was picking out shoes and when the three students were sent to pull a prank on Geum Jan Di after being beaten with golf sticks were cut.

In regards to the netizens’ protest, CTV expresses that what they broadcasted was what was given to them by GTV. They did not make any edits or switch insert songs.

GTV explains that the overseas version of Korean dramas are often not the same as the original, and that they have really not made any edits to the episodes.

The four males lead stars of a hit Korean telenovela, “Boys Over Flowers,” are coming to the Philippines.

Korean superstars Lee Min-Ho (Jun Pyo), Kim Hyun-Joong (Ji Hoo), Kim Bum (So Yi Jeong) and Kim Joon (Song Woo Bin), or popularly called “F4,” will visit the country, “The Buzz” host Kris Aquino announced Sunday.

There is no date yet as to when the stars will arrive in the Philippines but Aquino said it is going to be “soon.”

Based on the best-selling Japanese manga “Hana Yori Dango” by Yoko Kamio, the romantic story was first adapted in Taiwan as the phenomenal hit drama “Meteor Garden,” which aired on ABS-CBN in 2003. It starred Asia’s sensational boyband F4.

“Meteor Garden” remains to be one of the most successful Asianovelas aired on Philippine television, with an average rating of 42.9 percent in mega Manila and a nationwide average rating of 62 percent.

South Korea’s “Boys Over Flowers,” meanwhile, garnered an average rating of 30 percent. The show had a great impact on Korean pop culture as sales of men’s cosmetics and fashion items skyrocketed and the female lead’s hairstyle ruled the fashion world.

The Korean remake of “F4” also launched the careers of the four Asian superstars.

Aquino said the producers of the Korean show were grateful that, like Meteor Garden, it also became a hit in the Philippines.

Starting Monday, “Boys Over Flowers” will be aired at 6 p.m. before “TV Patrol World.” It takes over the timeslot of “Pinoy Bingo Night,” which will now be aired after “Tayong Dalawa.”

Will “Boys over Flowers” craze ever end?

Probably not.

Only four more days and the Goo Jun Pyo (Lee Min Ho), Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong) version of the music drama will be released through ‘MNet’ this coming 19th. The background music for the second music drama will feature ‘My Everything’ for Goo Jun Pyo’s (Lee Min Ho’s) story and ‘Sometime’ for the story of Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong). ‘Planet 905 Production’ stated:

For Yoon Ji Hoo’s (Kim Hyun Joong’s) portion of the music drama we’ve included scenes that were cut from the original drama. Also, along with the second music drama we plan on releasing a short ‘making film’ which shows behind the scene episodes.

So it looks like with the release of the music drama, ‘BOF’ fanatics will finally get to find out what happens to the Goo Jun Pyo (Lee Min Ho) and Geum Jan Di (Goo Hye Sun) couple.
