Storyline

Tsukushi Makino is a student at the prestigious and very exclusive school- Eitoku Gakuen. This school is attended by the children of Japan's elite society. Since Makino is poor, she is often teased by her classmates. For a girl that is naturally filled with spunk and an independent spirit, she tends to be timid at Eitoku Academy. That is until she has her first face to face encounter with the F4. The F4 (Flower 4) are the four richest and attractive men that attend and own the school. In a brave effort, Makino tries to defend her one and only friend, who accidentally offended the F4's leader Tsukasa Domyoji. Unfortunately she ends up causing the wrath of F4 to fall upon her, instead of her friend. But there was something that the leader of the F4 didn't expect. He didn't expect for her fight back. He didn't expect her to not care about his status. He didn't expect the feelings that began to bloom between Tsukushi Makino and himself, Tsukasa Domyoji. Could there be more to them than ...

Trivia

The title Hana yori Dango, more correctly "Boys before Flowers", is a pun on a Japanese saying, "Dumplings before Flowers", "Hana yori Dango" lit. "dango (rice dumplings) rather than flowers"). "Dumplings before flowers" is a well-known Japanese expression that refers to people who attend Hanami, but rather than enjoying the beauty of the flowers, head straight for the food vendor booths, preferring tangible things like food and drink to the abstract appreciation of the flowers' beauty.

Hana Yori Dango, a popular manga series by Kamio Yoko, has seen many incarnations. It was an anime series, a live action movie, and also a Taiwanese soap series. And now finally the Japanese have given us a 9 episode long, live action TV series.

This version.. obviously based off excellent material... wins major points for story of course. With excellent production and casting. Inoue Mao stars as the heroine Makino Tsukushi... Frankly I'm blown away by her performance. She pulls off Makino so very well and has the look down perfect. And opposite her is Matsumoto Jun from the popular band ARASHI, starring as Tsukasa Domyouji.

This series is chalk full of beautiful women, gorgeous guys, and all the drama that makes HYD so beloved. If you are a fan of Hana Yori Dango in any of it's previous forms, you will love this new retelling, a bit of a blend between the manga and the anime, but with real people....
