TheBoys Over Flowers phenomenon comes to America! Join Jandi and the Boys of F4 as they learn the true meaning of friendship and love in the hit comedy sweeping across Asia. Jandi is a brave high school girl who fights for the rights of others no matter the cost. When she defends a friend against the elite Boys of F4 (Flower 4), they target Jandi as their next victim. But nothing stops Jandi. She fights back and wins the admiration of the extravagantly wealthy boys. In a comedy filled with entanglements and adventure, Jandi never stops helping others. And F4 never stops rescuing her! The Boys of F4 may be loyal to each other, but they all lose their hearts to Jandi. Boys Over Flowers is based on the hugely popular Japanese manga, Hana Yori Dango, by Yoko Kamio. The Korean TV adaptation dominated the ratings and continues to win fans with its combination of laughter, thrills and romance. On DVD with English subtitles.

First off, I absolutely adored this drama. It had its flaws and ran on a bit, but it was a delight to watch and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys kdramas. That said, I first watched a fansubbed version of this right after it had wrapped in Korea and while the subtitles were well done, I wanted an "official" region 1 version for my collection. Imagine my excitement when it became available! I bought both vol. 1 and vol. 2. The packaging is great, vol. 1 includes a lovely photobook of the F4 and Jan Di, the disk quality is great, and the subttles are OK (there are some discrepancies, i.e some names are not quite what they should be), but there is one MAJOR difference from the fansubbed version--the backround music is different! So BE WARNED! If you watched the original Korean release with fansubs, all the backround music from the O.S.T. is completely different. Usually things like this don't bother me and if you've never seen any other version of this you won't notice, but the original songs in the backround were really catchy ones performed by some great Kpop groups! For me, the different music really changes the mood of some of the scenes. I'm sure the original songs are not included due to liscensing issues or some such legal mumbo jumbo, but it kind of sucks for us, who have shelled out quite a bit cash and expected to get the original TV show with its original soundtrack and found that that is not the case. Oh well, all gripes aside, for those who are interested in watching this show for the first time--I highly recommend it. It had its silly eye rolling moments, but the cast (especially the F4 boys) were lovey to watch and the story was very entertaing. But if you are like me and have seen it before and just wanted to add it to your collection--I warn you now, changes have been made.

I haven't seen such refreshing movie in a very long while and this one IS IT! It's nice to be reminded again and again of how simplicity in the midst of glitz and glamour is even more enchanting (as in the case of Jan Di); innocence, decency and determination can and will always capture ones heart! and the beauty of love and sacrifice between true loyal friends...amazing! Just try to overlook their vanity....the acting is outstanding! You'll laugh a lot, cry a little...it'll move you! It's a pleasant distraction as you'd be glued in your seat to the end! A wonderful entertainment for the young ones and once...young. Buy one! or better yet...give one!

I went back and forth on whether to get this YA version or the Malaysian set from PMP (like I usually buy-it was $70). I didn't really care about the photobook, so I was really torn. In the end, I decided to pay the extra money for this one and it was really worth it. The box set/digipak is super nice and the discs and subs are very high quality. Amazon has the best price I could find for both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. It also arrived really fast because it shipped from within the U.S. :)

This has got to be by far one of the best korean dramas. I tried watching the other versions but they weren't as good. I love all the characters, esp. Lee Min Ho (Goo Joon Pyo). He's so dreamy! I've watched this drama five times already and I don't get tired of it. So if you're reading this, that means you've heard about this drama and should probably watch it. Each episode leaves you wanting to know what's going to happen next. Ah, just breathtaking. Same goes w/Volume 2 of course.

A fantastic show! I love it and cannot stop watching it. Lee Min Ho is awesome as are the other actors, but he's my favorite. I recommend this show and this seller. Everything was perfect.

Boys Over Flowers is based on the hugely popular Japanese Manga, Hana Yori Dango, by Yoko Kamio. The Korean TV adaptation dominated the ratings. This K-Drama will make you laugh, cry, and root for the underdog. Jandi is a brave (and poor) high school girl who hates bullies and will fight for the rights of others no matter the cost. When she defends her only school friend from the elite Boys of F4's (Flower 4) abuse, Jandi becomes their next victim. She fights back and soon wins the admiration of the extravagantly wealthy boys. This is a GREAT show! The characters/actors are solid. The relationships between spunky Jandi, Junpyo (the ruthless leader of the F4), and the kind-hearted yet aloof Jihoo will keep you riding on an emotional roller coaster. The packaging of the series is fabulous! I was actually shocked with how nice the presentation/layout of the discs was (sturdy box to hold discs with photo album inside). Such a great buy. Well worth it!!! This series will make you laugh and cry so have tissues nearby. Also, there are many unexpected twists in the story so the viewer is never bored. And if you've never seen a K-Drama before, this one will make you become an addict. Once you watch Boys Over Flowers (the entire series), you WILL watch it again and again. I sure have and it gets even better each time.

This review is for the YA Entertainment Studio Version of the Korean Series Boys Over Flowers. Subtitles are excellent (easy to read, few grammar errors). Picture quality is amazing.

This was a fabulous drama and I absolutely loved it. I started watching just to see if it was any good and then boom! I was completely and utterly hooked. I enjoyed it tremendously--I cheered for every bit of drama and melodrama. It was so good I could over come the sappy music and cheesy hairstyles. In fact, to those things I say "bring it on!" By the end I loved it all. I feel in good conscience I should warn people that it is really, really hard to not turn to the next episode.

Not all K dramas have good endings, or rather, they don't have fitting ones, and as you enter into the home strech you end up wincing in horror as it spirals down into something awful. But in this one you're in excellent hands. The resolution is satisfying. The heroine is someone you can cheer for and do. It's a must watch. My only regret is that I can't be new to watching this again.

Is Amazon ever going to restock?
Hi Karla--

I don't believe Amazon will re-stock volume of "Boys over Flowers." :( The production company, YA Entertainment, announced they were going out of business. So, that means they won't be printing any more copies of "Boys Over Flowers" v. 1 or v. 2. So, whatever is... Read More

Subtitles, generally, these dramas aren't dubbed, just subbed, but still well worth it if you're a fan :)
