A poor girl gets into a very exclusive high-school
So, I gave it an 8 out of 10, but lets not forget the genre - it is not meant to be philosophical and arty! It is a high-school drama, but with very sweet and funny moments! I love the cartoon network style sounds they add from time to time! The title* in English is Boys before Flowers which sounds senseless and dumb to me - the ignorant European... So it made me pass by this TV series until a friend recommended it. And now I am totally addicted!
*It turns out that this Korean title comes from a previous Japanese version which sounds something like: "Hana yori Dango" which is a word play from the saying: "Dumplings before Flowers" (which sounds the same
"Hana yori Dango"). The meaning of the saying is- when you prefer the
material pleasures like dumplings instead of the abstract beauty of flowering cherry trees... If you want even more background info on that
check out the Japanese tradition Hanami...
