The perfect mix of everything a drama needs!! BEAUTFUL!
17 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My favorite drama..ever. and I've watched a lot. (korean/chinese/taiwanese/Japanese) I'm a BIG BIG BIG fan of dramas so i guess its safe to say i have "expirience" whatever that is. Hana Yori Dango is just such a bittersweet, heartwarming drama. It makes you smile, cry, and be angry all in a period of 40 min. its absolutely non-stop fun!

Every preview makes you want to grab the computer, shake its screen, and scream until the next episode comes out. (with subtitles for me because I'm actually a white girl)

It just hold that something special. Possibly the storyline, I mean there ARE those typical scenes and plots but in general it holds something new each episode. My biggest fear for season 2 was that it would follow in Meteor Garden's (another *taiwanese* remake of the manga) sequel. didn't! the storyline is gripping and on the edge of your seat close to falling action and excitement. Power, friends, family, money, love, heartbreak, hidden past, mysteries, dilemmas, worries are all bundled up into this second season.

The love between Rui, Makino, and Tsukasa intensifies and grows and tugs at your hear-strings. There are many smaller characters which this time are given bigger roles. Everyone acts wonderfully and sticks to their character so well.

The use of humor is JUST right, without that "very often" exaggerated humor other dramas tend to use. Everything is also very smart in the sense that its believable and the script is just perfect

As you can see i can rant on and on. Currently I'm up to episode 7 of the total 11 (tear tear coming to an end)

I wish that i could COMPLETELY describe this show, but ill leave it to everyone to watch. TRUST me you wont regret it. The characters are so sweet (guys=hot as wheel for the ladies), the music is AWESOM (2 main songs "Love So Sweet"--Arashi and "Flavor of Life"-- Utada Hikaru), and the story is perfectly put together and a great sequel

DO NOT think that just because its the "sequel/2nd season" its automatically bad. it JUST MIGHT surprise you! :]

so what are you waiting for? check it out! especially the 1s1 episode (which is almost the length of a move) and is absolutely priceless as it was shot in NYC itself!!!
