Korean netizens protest against the Chinese F4
Remember the Chinese F4?
Ever since the finalization of the cast, many Chinese fans has filed their complaints against the new batch of F4 members. Whether based on looks or appearance or experience, the ChineseF4 has been criticized for it all.
Yet now even the Koreans Netizens have joined in with the complaints.
Apparently, Group 8 Media, the company that produces the Korean “Boys Over Flowers” bought the rights to the “Hana Yori Dango” franchise under the contract that no HYD adaptation will be released within a two-year period. Meaning, if there’s another adaptation to follow the Korean version, the new adaptation will have to wait for two years before they start production.
China has not only began production, they have already launched a press conference to introduce the whole cast.
Korean netizens are now furious about this. Some are calling the new breed of F4 “fake” and “copycats”.
To prevent the outbreak of World War III, the producers of the Chinese adaptation made it clear that they are not copying the manga. Their drama entitled “Meteor Rain” is a “completely different story” from what the franchise has already produced.
“Meteor Rain” is currently shooting in Xiamen and is scheduled to air this summer.
NOTE: The Chinese producers say that this is a completely different story line, so technically not another version of Hana Yori Dango. (But we'll see if it's a remake when it airs...)
