Oh good god.

Just when we thought these infamous F4 dramas couldn’t be anymore reused & remade (Taiwanese, Japanese, Korean, AND the in production Chinese remake), VietNam just had to jump in and make my nightmare, a reality.

Except….I take that back 🙂 . With rumored characters like the following, I’m actually quite excited. It seems like that since by now that everyone could probably recite the story by heart,  the second most important aspect to highlight upon for these dramas are, of course, the aesthetics. And you thought that the acting quality would play a big impact on the success of anything cinematic-related didn’t you? Well apparently Idol-dramas beg to differ, as evident with Korea’s version where the acting was not just bad..it was BAD…and yet they were still raking in some major dough.

Since Korea’s “Boys Over Flowers” still currently hold a 2 year copyright of the story, it’ll be a while  until the  VietNamese version actually hits the little screen. As for the Chinese remake, I’m not too sure whether they’re also waiting for the 2 year period to draw out or that they have some kind of special exception instead.

The man-possibly-in-charge of this drama will be Dũng ‘Khùng,’ also director of “Hot Kiss 1 & 2,” “39 degree Love,” “Long Legged Girls,” & “Truong Ba’s soul in a Butcher’s Body.”

Anyway, here are the highly-likely candidates by votes (I will be using the Japanese names from the original manga as reference):

khong tu quynh

Makino Tsukushi, weed girl: Khong Tu Quynh (on the right)

Khổng Tú Quỳnh: 32%
Minh Hằng: 26%
Đông Nhi: 17%
Tăng Thanh Hà: 19%
Other: 6%

chi thien

Hanazawa Rui, weed girl's first love: Chi Thien

Chí Thiện: 49%
Johny Trí Nguyễn: 22%
Lương Thế Thành: 12%
Noo Phước Thịnh: 9%

Ngô Kinh Lâm: 27%
Giang Thái Trung: 18%

Other: 8%


Domyoji Tsukasa, F4 leader (not finalized)

Lương Thế Thành – His age seems versatile. Sometimes he looks old & sometimes he looks young; he could maybe pull it off?
Bình Minh – Are they cereal? The man is no doubt handsome….and hot….but he could probably pass for Khong Tu Quynh’s father.
Johnny Trí Nguyễn
– Love him and all, but also definitely too old for this character…
Vĩnh Thụy – They might as well give this role to him too…although it doesn’t look like he’ll fit in with Noo, Chi Thien, & Baggio very well.

Bao Trinh

Matsuoka Yuki, weedgirl's best friend: Bao Trinh

Angela Bảo Trinh: 32%
Midu: 25% (because of the results, fans are speculating that Midu would be the better match for Noo Phuoc Thinh, so hopefully they’ll make a change)

Quỳnh Nga: 8%
Other: 16%

You know….They could’ve at least revealed this casting, little by little, so that most of us don’t get too overwhelmed (like me) and nearly palpitated (like me). Also, since this news came much too sudden…we’re not 100% sure if this casting is the real deal, so stay tuned for a follow up post (hopefully).
