I’m so in! The first teaser is out for Meteor Garden 2018, the TW/C-drama latest adaptation of the perennially popular shoujo manga Hana Yori Dango (Boys Before Flowers), and it looks like the ideal summer guilty pleasure drama watch. The drama is being produced by the same producer who did the 2001 Taiwan hit that launched so many careers of the leads, but this one is backed by Chinese money and a mostly C-acting cast, and will air on streaming channel iQiyi. Starring Shen Yue and Dylan Wang as the well-known characters of Tsukushi Makino/Shan Cai and Tsukasa Domyouji/Dao Ming Si, the drama finished filming at the end of March and released the first teaser shows BTS-footage that succeeds in raising the interest in how this version takes the story into yet another decade and the current modern sensibilities.
