Here’s What The Cast Of “Boys Over Flowers” Look Like 14 Years Later


It’s been 14 years since Geum Jan Di and F4 first came to life in the iconic drama.

The classic Korean drama Boys Over Flowers began filming in 2008 and went on to become an international sensation, helping to accelerate the Hallyu Wave around the world. Some cast members, like Lee Min Ho, blew up from the drama, while others continued on to successful careers in film, TV or theatre. Others are married or dating fellow actors or singers. No matter what they’re up to now, though, they’ve all managed to age gracefully!

 

1. Lee Min Ho (Goo Joon Pyo)

Besides becoming Asia’s heartthrob, Lee Min Ho has become a seasoned actor of high acclaim in the years since his breakout role as Goo Joon Pyo. He landed leading roles in hugely popular dramas City Hunter, Personal Taste, Faith, Heirs and Legend of the Blue Sea. His first leading role in a movie was in the 2015 film Gangnam Blues, followed by his first China-produced film Bounty Hunters...

It’s the perfect balance that will keep you on the edge of your seat while having all the butterflies. Here are eight K-dramas that are the perfect blend of both action and romance!

In “City Hunter,” Lee Min Ho plays a character named Lee Yoon Sung, who goes undercover at the Blue House as an IT expert so that he can follow through with his father’s plan for revenge. There he meets Kim Na Na (Park Min Young), who works as a bodyguard. The two of them form an alliance as they realize that their plans for revenge are similar. In the process, they engage in a passionate romance.

 

This classic series is based on the ever popular Japanese manga, and it gained a lot of popularity in Korea as well as internationally. You get a somewhat rare glimpse of Lee Min Ho doing some very serious stunts and fight scenes all throughout the series. It is surprisingly very entertaining, but the highlight is definitely seeing the blossoming romance between Na Na and Yoon Sung.

Information on Ask the Stars 


Q. What is the revenue allocation of "Ask the Stars"? 

A. It is co-produced by Studio Dragon, KeyEast, and MYM Entertainment (Lee Min-ho's agency), and the profit distribution is partially allocated to MYM Entertainment according to Lee Min-ho's contribution, and the rest is allocated between Studio Dragon and KeyEast.

 

Spoiler

Q. I guess the scoop rate might go down more than expected?

A. It can be seen that way, but it can be sold to several places through CJ ENM's network to reduce risk.

 

Q. About illumination

A. Some of the main characters have been cast, but the others have not been cast yet, and it is very difficult to find actors these days. SM artists have priority in the audition. 

 

Q. Regarding the acquisition of Studio Flow production company created by Star PD,

A. It is very difficult to find a director these days, and the actors come in after seeing the director. Since there is a binding contract with the star PDs who took over to increase the number of productions and who gave them new shares of Keyeast, even if they sell their shares in Keyeast, they will have to do some works with Keyeast.

 

Q. DS Investment & Securities recently covered most of the drama production companies, but only Keyeast was missing.

A. We're looking into why we're the only ones left out, but we're also upset.

 

Q. Do you have any IR plans?

A. IR is still ongoing and we've been getting calls from various sources

8 more days until LMH's birthday!:fullofhearts:

 

@CarolynH  as far as I remember, you plan  to visit SK, right? South Korea has finally opened its borders! And as a treat to their tourists, they can now come back again to select areas in South Korea visa-free!  It's just that there's a condition to enter the country visa-free:  :sweet:   I guess this is not only exclusive for Philippines. (this was given to me by a Filipino friend)

 

Direct Flight to Jeju

Jeju Island welcomes tourists of any nationalities. They are given thirty (30) days to explore the island and experience the culture there. Condition: Tourists must book a roundtrip ticket directly from their origin country and Jeju.

Group Tours via YangYang International Airport - this is a small international airport in northeastern South Korea located in Yangyang County, Gangwon Province.

This is the most recent way to enter South Korea without any visas. Unlike Jeju, tourists who enter South Korea via YangYang airport has an access to the Seoul Metropolitan area and Gangwon province! Condition: There are no direct flights to YangYang, and only group tours are allowed for this. Korean Embassy has released their partnered travel agencies and you can check them here.

 

Make sure to check if you are eligible to enter the country visa-free! Also, keep in mind that upon visiting South Korea, you need to still practice safety protocols and have a Q-Code with you. Tourists transiting through Korea are granted visa-free entry except for nationals from 24 excluded countries, including Syria, Iraq, Pakistan. Also eligible are travelers who hold visas to the United States, or Canada, Australia, and New Zealand or those with visa or permanent residency to at least one of the 30 European countries who transit through Korea bound for the country of origin or a third country.

Lee Min Ho & Jung Il Woo - best friends in Korea

Inside ‘Pachinko’, The Apple TV+ Hit From Soo Hugh That Captured Hearts

...

Back in the Yeongdo fish market, K-drama heartthrob Lee Minho makes his debut as the respected, or feared, Koh Hansu, an older Korean businessman with his own traumas and connections to Japanese elites. Lee found himself doing something that he hadn’t done in nearly a decade: auditioning for a part. The audition process isn’t the most common practice in the Korean entertainment scene, and even less so for stars like the Boys Over Flowers breakout. But he was game.

 

“He’s like, ‘This is new for me, let’s try,’” Soo remembers of Lee’s audition. “Minho’s just one of those people that really thrives on challenges. He just likes always trying new things, so this was new for him. He’s like, ‘Interesting, let’s see how this process works.’”

 

A self-proclaimed “big fan” of the hit high school series Boys Over Flowers, Kim says she felt an immediate “great power” from her co-star during the chemistry audition.

 

“He has such powerful eyes. Whenever I look at his eyes, I get energy from his eyes,” Kim notes.

 

A longing gaze in the fish market is what sets off the series’ central romance and Sunja’s complicated multi-national journey. Kim views Lee’s Hansu as an encyclopedia of sorts for her character. After their initial encounter in the fish market, Sunja and Hansu grow close. He explains what the world has to offer outside of her small fishing village—abundant electricity, sweet oranges and candies.

 

On a riverbed boulder, Hansu roughly charts a map of the world for Sunja, including Japan and the United States, nations Sunja and her descendants will eventually attempt to call home as ‘Zainichi’—ethnic Koreans who migrated to Japan under colonial rule, and their descendants.
