Hana Yori Dango: Korean Version

According to one article posted in the Philippine Entertainment Portal website, GMA 7 secured the rights to the Korean version of the hit teeny bopper series.

And I quote:

As an example on how fast Ms. Gozon-Abrogar works, while talking about new Korean soaps, napag-usapan na may official announcement na sa South Korea na magkakaroon din sila ng version ng Meteor Garden, ang Japanese manga na unang pinasikat ng Taiwan featuring F4 (Translation: it was discussed that there was an official announcement from South Korea that there will be a Korean version of Meteor Garden, the Japanese manga first popularized in Taiwan and featuring F4). It was reported that the girl in the Coffee Prince ang gaganap na Shan Cai.

Narinig na rin pala ito ni Ms. Annette and while talking, she sent text messaging her connections/buyers of South Korean soaps. (Translation: Ms. Annette has already heard about the news and while talking, she sent a text message to her connections/buyers of South Korean soaps). It was done and go sa GMA-7.

More about this article and the equally controversial remake of a Charo Santos-starrer on GMA 7 here.

My friend Genevieve has confirmed the tentative title would be Boys Over Flowers.

The question now is, will there be a Philippine remake of the story? Your answer is probably as good as mine.
