I have a soft spot for Meteor Garden not because I love the Hana Yori Dango story all that much, it’s entertaining enough but the original Taiwan adaptation spawned the idol drama craze that gave us a decade of great TW-dramas. It’s also been the source material for many dramas to launch new faces thanks to the story line being set in high school and ripe for young up-and-comers to be cast, much the same way as Itazura na Kiss and Hana Kimi though the other two tend to only feature the leads. HanaDan has the chance to launch the careers of 5 stars with one leading lady and four leading men. The first set of scene stills are out showing female lead Shen Yue with male lead Dylan Wang, she’s playing Makino Tsukushi (Dong Shan Cai) and he’s Domyouji Tsukasa (Dao Ming Shi), of course. I can see the camera just loves them, there’s a liveliness to their expressions in even the stills of this scene that give me hope, please be good MG2018!
