Male Casting for Korean Hana Yori Dango Revealed

>> I wouldn’t be posting today if not for the sad news (Cho Jin Shil’s death) and this exciting news coz i’m having a fever since yesterday and i’m supposed to be resting on my bed, LOL! ^^

“F4″ guys in the Korean Hana Yori Dango, aka Boys Before Flowers.

Although it was floated around that the casting would comprise mostly pop idol stars, it turns out (for the better, imo), that we’re split half-half between idols and actors (the two rising actors at least have a decent amount of experience — for their age, I mean).

  • First is F4 leader in the Tsukasa role, aka actor Lee Min-ho.
  • Kim Hyun-joong, idol singer of pop boy band SS501, takes on the role of Rui.
  • Kim Bum, is most recently of East of Eden as Soujiro.
  • And, finally, Kim Joon is the least-known of the F4 boys, as Akira.

Lee Min-ho takes the lead as “Doumyouji Tsukasa,” renamed for the drama as “Gu Jun-pyo”:

Lee Min-ho, born in 1987, has a decent amount of work behind him, having done several TV shows and a couple films, including I Don’t Know Either, Run! Mackerel, Public Enemy Returns, and the recent Our School E.T.

“A least they gave Doumyouji to a “real” actor instead of the crossover newbie in his acting debut. Not that that’s bad (we all have to start somewhere?) but considering that he’s the most crucial F4 role, he’d damn well better know how to act.” – dramabeans

Kim Hyun-joong takes the character of “Hanazawa Rui,” renamed “Yoon Ji-hoo”:

“Kim Hyun-joong, a 1986-er of boy band SS501, is currently paired with Hwang Bo on variety show We Got Married, and was the first name to be floated around earlier this summer. He’s taking over the role following Oguri Shun’s excellent portrayal — that’ll be an uphill climb, particularly given that the boy doesn’t have a lot of acting experience. It appears he was cast because he fits the image; we’ll see if his skills measure up.” – dramabeans

Kim Bum is cast in the “Nishikada Soujiro” role, renamed “So Yi-jung”:

Kim Joon as “Mimasaka Akira,” aka “Song Woo-bin”:

“As the guy I’m least familiar with (as in, not at all), this is the best pic I could get; Kim Joon (full real name Kim Hyung-joon, a 1985-er) is the guy on the right of the first pic. And when I say “newb,” I mean this is his acting debut. He is, however, a member of the newish pop boy band T-Max.” – Dramabeans

He looks like Kim Hyun Joong in this pic.. I wonder if he really looks like him in his other shots..

>> I like the casting especially Hyun Joong & Kim Bum.. i’m really looking forward to this drama. Hope it’s worth the wait. ^^

  16. It is now history -casting of KHJ as Rui catapulted him to fame and fortune. Comparing him to th e japanese actor who played the part is not fair . Jihoo’s character was made complex and KHJ ‘s interpretation is his own unique way.

  17. I like your style…………..
