My Korean drama addiction started when I first watched Taiwanese Meteor Garden way back 2003 aired on ABS CBN. Everyone was hooked with this drama. Because of Meteor Garden I got to know Kdrama, Meteor Garden wasn’t Kdrama but this drama introduced me to Asian drama.
Last night while watching ABS CBN program, they showed teaser of the remake of Meteor Garden. Good to know ABS CBN will air the remake of Meteor Garden anyway they are the one who opened us to Asian drama. There’s no release date yet but for sure I will watch this drama. I just hope I will meet my expectation because even 15 years had passed I still love the original Meteor Garden. I have watched this for many times without being bored.
I’m looking forward to the new cast led by Shen Yue as Shan Cai. Playing the iconic F4 this time around are Dylan Wang as Dao Ming Si, Darren Chen as Hua Ze Lei, Connor Leong as Mei Zuo and Caesar Wu as Xi Men. I heard the show was already airing in China. My niece said they already watching it in Netflix.
This Chinese version is being produced by the original creator of “Meteor Garden,” Angie Chai. As with previous iterations, it will be based off the Japanese manga, “Hana Yori Dango.”
