Day 1: First Drama you watched?

Who can forget the huge hit drama from 2001 starring Vanness Wu, Jerry Yan, Barbie Xu, Vic Zhou, or Ken Chu? Based of the manga “Hana Yori Dango”, it spawned a cult-like following and inspired adaptations in Japan and Korea. I first started watching this drama when it was airing – looking back fashion and budget seem to be lacking (check out Dao Ming Si’s pineapple hair below!) but what made this drama so addictive was its heart.

I mean seriously look at this pineapple hair…

Meteor Garden rocketed the four boys to stardom, and gave rise to their own boyband (called F4), as well as commercials for big companies. They eventually broke up to go their separate ways, but all are still acting! You can watch Vic Zhou in Black and White, MARS, and Home among others, Jerry Yan in Down With Love and Hot Shot, and Vanness in Autumn’s Concerto, Tiamo Chocolate, and Material Queen.

    1. I THINK NOT!

      just kidding ๐Ÿ™‚ Meteor Garden is pretty common as a first drama – it was the first “big” asian drama that sparked the whole hallyu type craze. You have good taste though! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I started with the Japanese version instead ๐Ÿ˜› But…it seems like ONE of the 3 main versions is what got most people started…
