A poor girl gets into a very exclusive high-school
18 March 2009 | by (Prague, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

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...
