The Kapuso network will be airing the local version of the Korean hit drama “Boys Over Flowers”.

GMA Network has officially sealed a contract last Nov.9 with JU Entertainment Movie and Drama Inc., a Philippine company with a Korean counterpart, to produce the local version of the hit series.


A recent post by @kapusoprgirl shared the news via Instagram.

“Boys Over Flowers” is a romantic-comedy series based on the Japanese manga “Hana Yori Dango”. The story is about a tough, hardworking, poor girl who receives a scholarship at an elite school. Her life changes when she meets the four handsome and rich heirs.

Other countries who adopted their own version of the manga were Taiwan and Japan.

In 2003, the global mega hit series “Meteor Garden” arrived in the Philippines and captured the fancy of the entire country. Lead by Taiwanese superstars Barbie Shu (San Chai) and boy band members Jerry Yan (Dao Ming Si), Vic Zhou (Hua Ze Lei), Ken Zhu (Xi Men) and Vanness Wu (Mei Zuo), the show’s success has prompted television networks to air re-runs of the series.


Incidentally, ABS-CBN has also sealed exclusive rights to produce a remake of “Meteor Garden”. No other specific details have been revealed yet. JB
