The four male lead stars of a hit Korean telenovela, “Boys Over Flowers,” are coming to the Philippines.

Korean superstars Lee Min-Ho (Jun Pyo), Kim Hyun-Joong (Ji Hoo), Kim Bum (So Yi Jeong) and Kim Joon (Song Woo Bin), or popularly called “F4,” will visit the country, “The Buzz” host Kris Aquino announced Sunday.

There is no date yet as to when the stars will arrive in the Philippines but Aquino said it is going to be “soon.”

Based on the best-selling Japanese manga “Hana Yori Dango” by Yoko Kamio, the romantic story was first adapted in Taiwan as the phenomenal hit drama “Meteor Garden,” which aired on ABS-CBN in 2003. It starred Asia’s sensational boyband F4.

“Meteor Garden” remains to be one of the most successful Asianovelas aired on Philippine television, with an average rating of 42.9 percent in mega Manila and a nationwide average rating of 62 percent.

South Korea’s “Boys Over Flowers,” meanwhile, garnered an average rating of 30 percent. The show had a great impact on Korean pop culture as sales of men’s cosmetics and fashion items skyrocketed and the female lead’s hairstyle ruled the fashion world.

The Korean remake of “F4″  also launched the careers of the four Asian superstars.

Aquino said the producers of the Korean show were grateful that, like Meteor Garden, it also became a hit in the Philippines.

Starting Monday, “Boys Over Flowers” will be aired at 6 p.m. before “TV Patrol World.” It takes over the timeslot of “Pinoy Bingo Night,” which will now be aired after “Tayong Dalawa.”

Rainie = Momo = House girl

Character too quiet


Last year Rainie was in the drama [Miss No Good] and her character Jiang Xiao Hua was very lively; this year she has another new drama [Together] airing. This character is very different to Rainie's previous roles. Rainie says that this is the most different and most quiet character. Rainie: "In the drama I am called Chen Momo. This character is not like me at all. She is too introverted and doesn't know how to express her emotions unlike me; when she is angry or sad, she will cry to fix the problem but I definitely wouldn't do that; also, I am more lively, she is just sad. The only similarity I have with my character is probably that we both like to stay at home!"

Likes to play with her dog at home

Rainie who admits that she is a house girl, says her idea of "house girl" is different from others! Rainie: "When I'm at home, I don't watch cartoons. I love to spend time on the sofa at home then play with my dog. If my dog is asleep, I will wake it up, play with it for a while then let it sleep, then wake it up to play again. Even though I don't like to watch cartoons, I used to watch [Fushigi Yuuki], the story involves travelling between different dimensions, love and fighting. I like watching fantasy and cartoons about things that would be less likely to happen in real life." Rainie this house girl, is indeed very special. We just feel sorry for her dog Yumi that never gets a good sleep!

A slap with left hand

Filming the drama [Together], Rainie said that every scene was unforgettable. However, there was a scene where she "tricked" Da Dong that was especially unforgettable. Rainie: "There was a scene where I had to slap Da Dong. When we were rehearsing for it, I was always slapping him with my right hand. However, just before filming, the director told me to use my left hand to slap Da Dong in order to capture his natural emotions. Everyone there knew I was using my left hand but we weren't allowed to tell Da Dong. At the time, I was very nervous because we had never rehearsed using left hand and my left hand had always been very stupid. I was going to say, if we were to NG then the plan would be ruined so there was a lot of pressure on me! In the end when we were filming for real, I really used my left hand to slap him and once the director yelled cut, Da Dong very cutely asked, 'How come you used your left hand?' So I think the director was very smart, testing my reaction but also capturing Da Dong's natural side."

Da Dong doesn't have a temper

Speaking of fellow cast member Da Dong, the first thing Rainie says is that he is more feminine than a girl! The degree of care he puts into his appearance is far greater than hers. Rainie: "In this drama, I pretty much don't wear make-up and I'm always wearing a wig. However, Jiro really cares about his looks, always fixing it up and looking in the mirror. Even though this time he was acting as a superstar, I've heard that even when he's not, he is still like that. Once I said to him: 'You love to look good so much, I'm gonna expose you on some variety show!' But in the end he said: 'You don't have to expose me, the whole world already knows.' Even though I was unsuccessul in exposing him, I think that it's good that he doesn't deny it, after all he's not doing anything bad!
"Also, Da Dong gets along very well with others; I haven't had the chance to see him get angry. It's like he doesn't have express that whole range of emotions, he is very peaceful. I really wanna see what he looks like when he's angry!"

Emotional scenes to the point he had no voice

Rainie says that Da Dong has a very good temper, his EQ (emotional quotient) is high; whether this is a good or bad thing, she feels that Da Dong should let go more! However, one time Rainie finally saw Da Dong cry until he had no voice! Rainie: "There was one crying scene that left me very surprised because Da Dong kept saying that he couldn't do crying scenes. There was one scene where his mother cooks a bowl of noodles for him; Da Dong sees the letter his mother has written for him and then sits there crying. From the side, I saw just his back plus sounds of crying and I already cried. Later, the director yelled 'Cut' but Da Dong couldn't stop crying. I've never seen him like that. After yelling 'Cut' he still couldn't stop, I was completely shocked. Because I've never experienced not being able to stop crying after a crying scene, I think he must have been thinking of something very sad at the time."

House guys have their advantages

This Valentine's Day, Rainie will have a new romantic idol drama airing. Rainie who loves work, will be working on Valentine's Day. Talking about her ideal lover, Rainie says that house guys are no problem because she quite likes to stay at home herself. She even said that they were good because they won't go out to get to know other girls and muck around. As long as it's not to the point that he doesn't want to communicate with her, it's all okay! However, Rainie can't really accept home guys that like to cosplay female characters. They can only cosplay male ones!
Rainie: "If he cosplays a girl, I can't accept that but he can cosplay a guy. In fact, I know a few people who like to cosplay but when they aren't cosplaying, they dress quite normally. As long as he is not too much in love with the character, I'm okay with it. My most unforgettable Valentine's Days are all the ones without a Valentine. One year when I was single, we finished work early and then all the single people went out to sing. Drinking a little and singing some sad songs, it was still quite cheerful."

Jiro Wang = Mars = Celebrity going downhill

The most emotional scenes

Now for Da Dong! This time Da Dong's character Zhuang Jun Nan (Mars) is also very different to his previous roles. This time he is acting as an unpopular artist but he is actually very kind. It's just that he entered the entertainment industry very early and enjoyed his success, so he became selfish, proud and didn't know how to treasure things, causing his career to go downhill.
Da Dong: My character is a superstar. Once he meets the house girl, she changes his life and he learns to cherish more. This character has many emotional scenes, lots of crying scenes, making it very hard for me. However, because of these crying scenes, I feel a very big sense of achievement." Da Dong says that this character is mostly unlike him because he is arrogant and selfish. The one thing they do have in common however, is that they work very hard for the benefit of their family. Da Dong: "It doesn't matter whether I'm happy, unhappy or injured. In front of my family, I will always make myself look healthy, happy and lively, hoping that my mum will think that I'm doing great."

Kissing for full five minutes

Everyone knows that Da Dong is a very filial son but they may not know the details about Da Dong and Rainie's kiss scene, let's wait for Da Dong to tell us about it himself! Da Dong: The first kiss scene is at school, I have to force a kiss onto her. I was very nervous when I was filming this, not knowing what to do. Because she has a petite figure, I had to lower my head to kiss her. Slowly getting into that scene, I touched her [lips] a bit. Afterwards she laughed saying, 'You even shake when kissing!'"
Da Dong also said that the director wanted many different angles of the kiss scene so they had to kiss many times, "I was really shy!" Da Dong: At the very end there is also a kiss scene, sitting in a boat on the lake. Originally it was meant to be romantic but the director said we should keep kissing as if no-one's watching while the director captured the scene himself. We kept kissing and kissing and kissed for a long time, it was probably five minutes, until we didn't know what we were doing! But the director didn't yell cut so we had no choice but to keep kissing to the point we were kissing and chatting at the same time."

Giving each other nicknames


Ethan Ruan said that when he films kiss scenes, he very easily feels closer to the other person. Da Dong and Rainie have so many "special kisses", their relationship must be pretty good! Da Dong: "Rainie is very professional, dedicated and amazing. She has taken on the role of many different characters and this time actually seeing her act, I think that she can act very well. Before I got to know her, I thought she was lively, carefree and lifts up the mood in a group of people but afterwards, I discovered that when she goes out, she is very quiet. I think she is quite attractive to others, like a little lady." Da Dong compliments Rainie non-stop and personally, they even created nicknames for each other. Rainie calls Da Dong "Cha Cong" [叉蔥] while Da Dong calls Rainie "Gu Ji" [姑雞] and even mentioned that when they are acting cute, they'll even put on couple expressions!

Da Dong very much a house guy


In the drama, Da Dong has many emotional scenes while Rainie's body must suffer. There is a scene where Rainie jumps into the water to save Da Dong; Rainie had to keep jumping in for a few hours and even got sick in the end! Da Dong: She is willing to make sacrifices for acting. Just like that jumping in the water scene, even though it was cold, as a girl, she still had to keep jumping in."
Da Dong really admires Rainie's professional spirit but Rainie calls herself #1 house girl, so does Da Dong likes house girls? Da Dong: "I wouldn't not accept. The two of us staying at home together, we could rent movies to watch. I quite like the feeling of a world with only two people." Also, Rainie doesn't really like people who cosplay but turns out Da Dong really likes to cosplay! Da Dong: "Personally I like to collect models/figurines and have also cosplayed before. For example, I've dressed up as visual kei people as well as characters from [天使之烈士], Shota no Sushi [将太の寿司], Mr. Fighting [格鬥天王], The King of Fighters [格鬥天王], etc. I can even make my own costumes, wings, feathers and all.

Da Dong loves surprises!


Whether Da Dong and Rainie are compatible, only they will know first! However Da Dong said that if Rainie was his girlfriend, he would plan a surprise for Valentine's Day! Da Dong: "I will give her what she wants. Beforehand I will go shopping with her and ask her what girls like, pretending she's helping me look for a gift for another girl. A few days before Valentine's Day, I will purposely not call her, pretending to distance myself from her. Then on Valentine's Day, just before the day ends I will find her and give her the gift she chose." Da Dong is quite thoughtful and seeing how romantic he is, if he had a lover right now, his Valentine's Day will definitely be as romantic as can be.
Da Dong: "I will first arrange a time with her but then get to her house earlier. Downstairs from her house, I will prepare a very large bouquet of flowers for her. Then carry the flowers and go shopping, letting the whole world know that she has a handsome boyfriend who gives her big bouquets of flowers. Then we'll have a lover's set meal, watch a movie, shop, admire the night scenery and light fireworks!" Da Dong is so romantic, any girl would love him! Rainie shouldn't not want to be [Together] with Da Dong, right!

Jerry Yan is quite stubborn when it comes to going on shows; he refuses to talk about his relationships. Unfortunately, he meets fiery Xiao S and even he can’t do anything about it! In the end, he is forced to admit that he previously lived together with his ex-girlfriend and he also likes to watch romantic A-films, letting this interview sink into a semi-surrender state!

Jerry doesn’t like to talk about relationships; Xiao S insists on looking at his underwear

To promote for upcoming PTS idol drama ‘Starlit’, Jerry went on ‘Kang Xi Lai Le’ for the first time, and he invited his co-stars Terri Kwan and Liu Rui Qi to accompany him, as he was afraid of Xiao S asking him about his relationships. But unexpectedly, on the show, Xiao S releases full firepower, and even his co-stars couldn’t do anything to help him.

Because before the show, Jerry had already expressed that he does not wish to discuss any relationship matter, as soon as filming started, Xiao S asked directly: “Do you want to talk about your relationships, or do you want me to look at your underwear?” Since Jerry did not reply, Xiao S immediately ran to the back of him, and pulled up his clothing, and she even chased Jerry around the studio. In the end, she said: “I saw it! Very normal style, it’s grey boxers, with white elastic belt.”

Jerry reveals he initially lived with his girlfriend; Xiao S knows it was for 2 years

Although she has already seen his underwear, Xiao S is still in a hot pursuit in asking about his relationships. She bombards him with questions: “When was your last relationship? Was she over 170cm in height?” Jerry replied that his last relationship was within a year, but as for her height, he was unwilling to disclose, seems that he is afraid Xiao S will pigeon-hole her as Lin Zhi Ling.

Cai Kang You skillfully asks the guests to guess: “Has Jerry lived together with his girlfriend in the past? How long?” Xiao S guessed “once, for 2 years” and Terri guessed “three times, 2, 4, 1 year” and Jerry answered: “Xiao S is more close.” Xiao S then replied: “I didn’t guess randomly, I know these things.”

Xiao S bombards; Jerry confesses

Xiao S asked Jerry the reason for his last break-up and he revealed that he was “very bad and immature,” so the 2 broke-up naturally. Cai Kang Yong couldn’t help but ask: “So do you still love her now?” Towards this, Jerry refused to answer directly and said: “In the past, we loved each other, definitely will have feelings.”

As the relationships topic drew to a close, Xiao S then asked: “Do you watch A-films, what type do you like to watch?” Jerry did not reply to both, but said that he likes to watch romantic ones; Xiao S then asked: “Will you dare to shower naked infront of a mirror?” Jerry said: “No, because I don’t have any confidence in my body.”

Xiao S: Jerry electrifies someone else’s wife

Cai Kang Yong asked Xiao S: “Have you fantasised about Jerry?” Xiao S expressed that there was once when Jerry went on ‘100% Entertainment’ and he very passionately pinched her face, but then the second time they met, he was like a person who she had just met; felt very unfamiliar. Although Da S and Jerry are quite close, Xiao S feels that Jerry is a person who is sometimes cold, sometimes hot.

However, out of all the male artists that she has interviewed, Xiao S feels that Jerry is the one electrifies her the most, she said impolitely: “When he talks to me, his eyes will keep on electrifying at me, I’m already married, what does he want!”

Ken Chu, created discussions with his suave look when he entered showbiz, to his balloon-like bloated appearance. He told the reporter: "Actually I was ill, my father passed away during filming of "Legend of Chu Liu Xiang" and my body condition was not good as a result of alcoholism. I am better now, almost recovered. I could have went to America for a month (for cosmetic/plastic surgery), and would have 6-pecs muscles now. But I don't find it necessary, because I was ill." He even showed his arms to show the reporter, proving he is not fat at all.

More than once, his relationship with media was tense because of questions on his appearance and love-life. In this interview, his attitute was very sincere and made the 1st move to interact with the media. "It is better after leaving previous company, they used a "branded store" way, why does celebrities have to be LV, Armani, and not Gap? Previously, people were not able to see my sincerity but they can now. I feel at that time, media did not quite understand, but actually everyone is working for living, when something happens it is not a one-sided responsibility. Media wants interesting topics, celebrities cooperate, it works this way. The only thing I could do is to work hard, and do my best to go the right way."

Outsiders are curious about his relationship with other F4 members, he explained: "Really can't consider best of friends, when there is no work together we may not meet for half a year, but once we work together we have tacit understanding. Others often say we cannot get along, but that is not true. Each person have their own speciality, no clashes at all. But personally we do not have contact, would not know what others are doing." He did a market segregation with other F3, "I am not as adorable as Vic Chou, can't dance better than Vanness Wu, my money definately is the least among F4, but I use my lifestyle attitude to interact with fans."

His future plans is do charity work, planning on establishing a charity foundation, "I have always wanted to do charity work, before 35 years old I wish to ride throughout China in motorcycle and raise funds, and also to engage in education work, I feel that having good education will help to overcome poverty. Then, also do something for animals. I am now 30 years old, there is still 5 more years to work on it. "

The name "F4", since year 2001 Meteor Garden filming, experienced popularity, ups and down, going solo, reuniting... various news, so what kind of relationship do the 4 of them have?

Ken said: "Our relations are subtle, not very good nor bad. Not possible to be best of friends because we have different lifestyles. And not possible to be on bad terms because we often have to work together. Are we really friends? Probably not." He added " Because besides work, we don't have any contacts." However, he did not overturn their many years of revolutionary feelings. He revealed they have slept together before. Was there competition between one another? He said: "Even if there was, it was no ill intentions." There were rumours that he and Jerry Yan were on bad terms, he denied: "I dislike people who are gui mao (taiwan slang for fussy?), after Jerry knew, he dare not provoke me." If have to choose who he gets along best with among other F3, he chose Vic Chou: "His cold jokes, only I can understand."

Shedding Idol image

Before entering showbiz, he had lived in hardship. His life totally changed because of F4. The 1st time in his life to see large sum of $ was when he filmed Marmalade Boy with NT$500,000 earnings. But if given the chance for him to make a decision again, he expressed he will not walk the same road and would rather study. Besides losing freedom, privacy... after being a celebrity, there was once he was tembling outside the bank entrance, he realised he was lost the ability to do things himself. From then, he felt he has to refind his attitude of living. "This 3 years I have been working hard to shed idol image, who doesn't go downhill, the most important is that u have face ourself when u are asleep." Therefore, he practise Taichi, "I hope fans will learn from my way of life, not blindly spend money for my sake."

"I have always been alone since young. To me, family is empty. So when 2 people get together they have to share everything, it's important to have own home." Although when asked about their love relationship, Ken and Lin Xi Lei remain tight-lipped, but their relationship have been an open secret in the entertainment scene.

Sparks flew for Ken Chu and Lin Xi Lei when they co-star in movie "Tokyo International Trial" in 2005. Their 3 year romance slowly begins open up, last October at F4 Japan concert, he hurt his shoulder during rehearsal and she was backstage encouraging and worried for him. Later, it was rumoured that he introduced her as his "fiancee" to his friends, displaying their stable relationship. He said: "I have always been happy, I'm very shuang (feel good)".

Since he feels good, why doesn't he admit to the relationship? He answered: "It's not that I dare not or unwilling, it is because not wanting to disappoint some people's feeling (refering to consumers), it is no longer fun when everything is bare and open. He describes himself as a product, he has a responsibility to provide topics for the public, but needs to think for the lady, because female "value" differs from male. So it seems that it is not to affect Lin Xi Lei's market value in the movie industry... But if the female wishes to make public their relationship? He said he is ok with it.

So he and his girlfriend can only stay home for dates and will not appear together in Taipei streets. He said: "Last year, there were rumours of us getting married, this year of us getting engaged, then what rumours next year? The reports are more interesting, if i was to say the truth everyone will not be interested." Practising Taiji for 2 years, it seems that he also learnt to da taiji (meaning trying to beat around and avoid answering) when reporter presses further about his love life. He laughed proudly: "I have always know how to"

Recap his previous rumoured love relationships, he indeed did not answer nor wish to discuss. "I do not explain rumours, I feel gentlemen should have this attitude. Because if i were to speak the truth, many girls would commit suicide... My love relationship is very stable. "

In 2004, when there were rumours of him dating Mayi, photos of him kissing China actress Li Bing Bing were published. About the incident, he hinted it was a set-up, "Just let them say what they want, whatever I say will be wrong..." I also admitted he was partly at fault for not controlling himself. Since F4 became popular, many people threw themselves at them, regardless of fans, female crew, female celebrities, and even people "offering" pretty ladies to his hotel room but he rejected. "Gifts fall from the sky, I dare not"

His parents seperated when he was young, he learnt to depend on himself when he was 12 years old, begin to work at 15 and financially dependent at 17. His record was hold 3 jobs each day, and earned NT$30,000 per month. Now he has savings, found a partner but still does not have the thought of getting married or starting a family, "marriage is unnecessary, can have a child even without a certificate. However, i will think about it carefully and will give it a chance."

A capricorn, he claims he is romantic. When request for instances, he thought for some time and replied "I do not talk about rumours" Seeing that the reporter does not agree, he added "My way of romantic is more conceptual" Recently, he brought Lin Xi Lei's dog Kai Le to his MV shoot, he said "to train it to be a celebrity". Perhaps raising a dog together with his girlfriend is his way of being romantic.

‘Miss No Good’ has finished airing, but main leads Wilber Pan and Rainie Yang have become best onscreen couple. However, although the 2 have known each other for 8 years, collaborating to film idol drama, sharing many kiss scenes, there is still no electricity between them. Rainie says Wilber is too friendly, she likes guys where there is a certain distance between them. She added: “My personality is too manly, Wilber won’t like me, I’m a 'male po (old woman)!' Wilber laughed at this and joked: “You don’t need 'po' la, you are 'male!'

Rumours indicated that Wilber likes girls who have big breasts, but he cried that this is not true. He expressed that he’s never been too concerned about girls’ figure. Rainie supported and expressed that from her understandning, Wilber places great importance on feeling, rather than looks.

Rainie and Wilber both expressed that they are currently single. According to Rainie’s observations, Wilber likes girls who are sexy and feminine. Wilber replied: “Actually, I tend to like older girls. In the past, most of my relationships have been older-girl-younger-guy.”

While filming ‘Miss No Good’, Wilber was definitely NG King. Rainie constantly could not stand this, and thought that he was joking around. Afterwards, did she realize that Wilber didn’t purposely NG, but he had seriously memorized the script, but when filming started, he was unable to play it out, and afterwards he would often get angry at himself. Wilber joked: “My NG BTS can raise the ratings!” Are they willing to work with each other again? Rainie laughed saying: “Of course, when Wilber is here, the whole crew is very happy.”
