Storyline

Makino Tsukushi, coming from a humble family of reduced income, feels out place at Eitoku Gakuen, a school largely attended by the progeny of the most rich and powerful people of the country, so she's determined to draw as little attention to herself as possible and pass her high school days without incident. She's specially cautious of staying out of the way of the F4, a group made up by the four richest boys in school and that rules over the entire student body by intimidation and bullying. However, when her one friend at school manages to draw the ire of the leader of the F4, Domyoji Tsukasa, Makino jumps in to defend her friend and confronts him. By doing so, she not only becomes the newest target of Tsukasa's anger, but also, and unexpectedly, the focus of his interest. This, just as Makino was starting to have feelings for the enigmatic Hanazawa Rui, another member of the F4 and close friend to Tsukasa, marks the end of her quiet and untroubled days and turns her life into the ...

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....
