Boys Over Flowers Comes to an End


The moment fangirls (and guys) have all been waiting for is here.  The 25th episode aired today, marking the end of the Korean version of the series (꽃보다 남자 / Kgotboda Namja).  It had to have probably been Asia’s biggest/highly viewed drama this season.

Overall, the series was entertaining.  Thousands were hooked on watching all over the world.  Episodes would be subtitled into numerous languages just a few hours after they aired (with the convenience of viikii’s online collaborative subbing).  It was hilarious, dramatic, and addicting.

But was it enough to please the diehard fans of the original series (Hana Yori Dango)?

In my opinion, it satisfied their overall craze for the series.  Fans may have squirmed or twitched a bit after seeing the plot stray a little too far from the original, but many kept their mouth shut since they still found it entertaining.

The ending was a little disappointing.  It felt rather incomplete, not to mention it was way different than the ending of the original series .  It still leaves you wondering about the one main thing that should have happened in the end.  Which makes me wonder, is their going to be a special episode or a second season?  That would certainly explain a lot, but not much.  Fans can only hope, but I doubt it.  The 25th episode ends with a scene four years into the future.

The ending had a “feel good” sensation to it, which left most viewers happy.  Or were they happy that the series finally came to end?  Conclusions are always exciting.
