Meteor Garden 2018

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.”

My All-Time Favorite Korean Drama

I made my very first video compilation of my all-time favorite Korean drama. When I made this video I don’t know how to start. I don’t have any program or something to start the video. Thanks to Google for the tutorials, but, sadly none of them help me. I remember I made photo compilation of my daughter when she was a baby using Windows Movie Maker. I used this once again to compile my all-time favorite Korean drama. The simple video was successful and can be seen in youtube but I admit I need to learn more about this movie maker. Well, as a Korean addict I’m happy to compile my favorite drama and hopefully soon will make videos of my favorite Korean leading men and ladies and soundtrack of Korean drama.

By the way if you could check my account in youtube – pigrabbit1. Curious why this name. Well, it came from the korean drama “You’re Beautiful starring Park Shin Hye and Jang Geun Seuk. No question, I’m really addicted to Korean, lol. If  I  remember it right when the time I’m getting an account in youtube this is the Korean drama I’m currently watching. Without thinking of other names I used this pigrabbit but add number 1. I made my account long time ago but only this time I feel like using it.

Here is the video, hahah!

1. Autumn in my Heart – Reason
2. 49 Days – Can’t Forget You
3. Innocent Man – Really

Watching Meteor Garden for the nth Time

I can’t believe I’m watching Meteor Garden again and this is for the nth time already. I remember watching this show on ABS-CBN; it was first aired almost 11 years ago. It was the first Asian drama series aired in the Philippines. I was really hooked and addicted on this drama. I even bought Meteor garden stuff like stickers and photos of F4. I wasn’t contented watching it on ABS-CBN because I remember renting DVD’s of this series. After watching this hit series, I began to appreciate Asian dramas especially Korean drama series.

When I heard that Meteor Garden will be aired again on ABS-CBN, I was so excited, lol. I remember my younger days and the days I was addicted to this drama series. Still the excitement is there even I already know the story.

I uploaded the episodes in my Starmobile Engage 9 and currently enjoying it again.  Haist, I wonder where are the main casts now. Barbie Hsu (Shan Cai), Jerry Yan (Dao Ming Si, Vic Zhou ( Hua Ze Lei), Vanness Wu (Mei Zuo) and Ken Chu (Xi Men).

For those who are not familiar of this series, let me share the Synopsis (Wikipedia)

The story centers around a poor teenage girl named Shan Chai, who at the persistence of her parents goes to a university for rich people. The university is dominated by Dao Ming Si Hua Ze Lei, Mei Zuo and Xi Men, four rich and handsome but arrogant students collectively known as ‘F4’, short for ‘Flower 4’. They are heirs to four rich and influential families in Taiwan. They terrorize the school by handing out red cards to those they do not like, which allows other students to bully the victims until they leave the school.
After one of Shan Chai’s friends receives the wrath of F4’s leader, Dao Ming Si, and receives a red card, Shan Chai stands up to Dao Ming Si and slaps him, which in turn results in a red card of her own. However, Shan Chai’s persistence in standing up for what is right gradually gains F4’s respect and Dao Ming Si falls in love with her.

There are also Korean (Boys over Flowers) and Japanese (Hana Yori Dango) version of this series. I watched the Korean version and planning to watch the Japanese version. I won’t say Meteor Garden is the best because i like also Boys over Flowers but the original will always be in my heart.
