[Current Mainland Chinese Drama 2018] Meteor Garden 流星花園

Recommended Posts

@Wotad Trust me, she never goes back to Lei. When things get hard after Si's Mom arrival, she confides in him only because he is a good friend and understands her feelings. Once she gets together with Si, she never wavers in her feelings for him. That's how it is in the K and J versions. I don't think they will change that aspect of the story. It will make Shan Cai look bad.

Oh and Mei Zuo is getting a love interest as well?? That's actually nice, he is my second favourite F4 character after Si. Hehe. 

 

I like that too.  I love how the bromance is much stronger in this version and the other two boys have more screen time rather than just background wallpaper for the main F2.

Because she is meant to be with Si. LOL.

 

Lei is a good guy as well, I don't deny that, but it's just that seeing Si in deeply and madly in love only with her from the beginning made me want to root for him. I know you didn't ask that question to me, but that's my answer anyways. Lolol. 

 

@lan_lan Agreed. I also admit that I didn't feel the bromance at the first few eps. Thought Korean version showed the friendship among the F4 in a nice manner. From the first ep, you can feel the cameraderie of the four boys. I thought it was lacking in this version, but they managed to slowly built it up. Especially in the recent eps, they were good. The ep when Si came back from London and apologized to Lei and the other two filming it was cute.

I dunno something about it just doesnt fit with me i feel like she would always be second compared to Jing. While Si will love her and only her thats what i believe at least. I also think that Lei is a bit of richard simmons for trying to be with her when he knows how much SI is into her.

The bit i hated which turned me off Lei is when he returns he tried to take Shan Cai and made Si jealous i really did not like that.

So in the other versions the other 2 are barely seen?

Apparently he did that to push Si and Shan Cai together. To make them realize their feelings for each other. That kiss though....is definitely wrong and he did it in a impulse. I would cut him some slack because he was heartbroken and has no one beside him who would understand his feelings better than her. 

 

But I agree with you that Shan Cai will always be second to him compared to Jing.

They were there but they weren't as fleshed out as here.  I mean eventually we get the "tea couple" storyline for Ximen, but I felt Mei Zou in the other versions just ended up fading out by the end.  It was like the two of them were there when it was convenient for those shows to present them as a group.  

 

Whereas here we got a lot more scenes of them doing things with each other, for example, dating tips when DMS was the girl to their guy lol, the Bridge club hangouts, constantly teasing DMS about Shancai, being in the middle when DMS and Lei were mad at each other, now more teasing of DMS about Shancai during the cooking competition.  I just like that a lot because it reinforces their bond even more.

Eh i dont believe he was not into her and he kissed her and was out to win her i believe. In other scene's we see them together a bit in the trailer where it seem's a bit past just friendship. He kissed her not knowing Si was going to be there.

 

 

Song playlist i love 2/3 the most.

Hi guys,

I just started watching this drama and loving it so much. I usually wait until they complete airing and subs are all out but this drama is just so cute, like the other drama she was in recently. So, I'm watching it raw and watching it again once the subs are out, just because I LOVE IT so much :wub:. Anyways, it seems like there are two, maybe three, different versions of this drama depending on the network they're on. So my question is, if I choose one over the other, am I missing anything?  'cause I read somewhere that some networks in China are super conservative and they edit out scenes they think are inappropriate.

Hi all.  Just finished watching episode 14 in Netflix.  I was wondering if anyone can help me.  The bridge match between Lei, Shancai, Si and Zuo — why does does it seem familiar? I feel like I’ve seen it in a kdrama but I just can’t remember.  Anyone remember?

 

Anyways IMO, the last four episodes felt like filler episodes.  It felt draggy compared to the first 6.

Hi I did a comparison during the first week because I noticed Netflix was cutting off differently from the live broadcast and can confirm that there aren't any changes.  For some reason the TV version's episodes lengths were divided up unevenly (1st ep was over one hour long) but once Netflix uploads, the episodes are evenly divided up into around 45 minutes long.  So if anything Netflix is just a little behind by around 5-10 minutes vs. the live episodes, but there are no cutting or changing of scenes.

 

This MV is really cute set to the FTLY theme song.

@lan_lan Thanks for sharing that mv. And great now I want to rewatch FTLY. Lol. But no time though, I'm busy watching and rewatching meteor garden. I think i'm kinda addicted to this show. I need to wait two more days for the subbed eps. I can't even....

@kokodus Same here!  I've been replaying the face drawing scenes and when he jumped out of his chair from excitement that she won a special prize and had to be held back by his friends over and over again.  Can't seem to concentrate on anything else, it's so bad for my personal life lol.  You have to be strong and not watch the raws tomorrow because it's so much sweeter seeing scenes for the first time in HD with subs hehe.

@lan_lan Haha those are my fav moments as well. I also love that time freeze talk and when he made funny faces at Shan cai's opponent when she was giving her winning speech. LOL he is so petty and a 5 year old at heart...And I don't know whether I'll be able to wait for the subbed eps this week. People who know me say that my patience level is of the size of a peanut. Lol. I should also refrain from coming to this thread.....no no no. I don't know. Gahhhhhhhhhh. 

 

I love how it's also popular in other sites like Dramabeans and MDL. Actually only in soompi it's being talked less. Sighhhh. I also want to know how it's doing in China. How do the Chinese audience feel about our new Si puppy??

That moment when Shan Cai closed her eyes, expecting him to kiss her, but he pulled back was done so well. Many, including me, was unhappy about that borderline sexual harrasment in one of the initial eps. But now I feel so proud of him that he held back and didn't take advantage of that moment. He is growing up so well. I totally thought and wanted them to have a kiss in that scene but I'm even more happy that it didn't happen. Lol. I think their real proper kiss should happen after she confess her feelings to  him. I also wouldn't mind if she is the one who initites it this time around. There is a scene in one of the MVs I watched (apparently I have watched a lot of them) where she pulls his tie and gets him closer to plant a kiss on his lips. I so can't wait for that scene to happen. And from what I noticed from watching all these MVs, there is a hella lot of kisses waiting for us. YAyyyy. But there are also evil mother in law's, arranged marriages and Noble idiocy in the line. SIGH. I just want to protect these puppies from the outside world. Can I put them in my pocket and take them elsewhere??

I cant find Online Rating's but for TV it so far has a average 0.986 and 1.093 between two channels , Legend of Fuyao has 0.815 and 0.482 , Sweet dreams has 0.977 and 1.599. 

 

Compared them to other popular drama's atm.

@Wotad The ratings are not bad I guess. Thanks for researching it for me. Hehe. I also read somewhere that there is going to be a movie sequel for this.....how great that would be?? I totally want that to happen. 

FTLY = Fated to Love you. It's an old Taiwanese drama starring Ethan Ruan and Joe Chen. I only had the opportunity to watch it recently and I loved it. I Highly recommend this one.
