Oh man is this a casting coup from a nostalgia connection and from a suitability standpoint. The upcoming 2018 TW-drama remake of Meteor Garden has cast Xiao S in the drama, finally making her wish come true after she’s been pining for 17 years in not doing the original Meteor Garden which starred Xiao S’s older sister Barbie Hsu as the female lead. Xiao S shared pictures from the filming at the airport and revealed that she was playing the role of the older sister to the male lead character in this version played by rising young actor Dylan Wang. Xiao S’s brash and brassy personality would be such a great fit for the character of Domyouji Tsubaki still played the most perfectly by Matsushima Nanako in the J-version of Hana Yori Dango. These filming stills also revealed the hairstyle for the male lead going for the Japanese Yankee style, decent but doesn’t hold a candle to the upside down broom that was Jerry Yan‘s look.
Also, is anyone as perturbed as I am by the pants on Liang Jing Kang on the far right of this group playing the Akira character. I suppose the son of a mob boss may go for wide legged trousers so voluminous he could hide a small child in his pants leg.
