Today is honestly one of the craziest days of news ever (but it’s better if you ignore the bad parts–I’m sadly going to “overlook” this incredibly heart-wrenching news because we don’t need one more person talking about it).
THE CASTING FOR THE KOREAN HANA YORI DANGO (“Boys Over/Before Flowers”) IS OUT! FINALLY
Group Eight has chosen this day to reveal the highly-anticipated casting list for F4 in the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango. Actor Lee Min Ho is casted as Tsukasa Domyoji, Kim Hyun Joong as expected is Rui Hanazawa, Kim Bum is Sojiroh Nishikado while relatively unknown Kim Joon is Akira Mimasaka. No mention of who is playing the female Makino yet.
FLAILLLLLL I’M SO EXCITED! I’m excited that Kim Hyun Joong is confirmed, because I’ve already spent too much time gushing about how great how he would be as Hanazawa Rui. I’ve never seen Kim Bum in anything, but I think he’s adorable… so LOL. Plus, I recognize his name, which makes me happy. I never got far enough in I Am Sam to see or recognize Lee Min Ho, but he at least looks like he could make a great Domyouji. EEE! And I know nothing about Kim Joon, but I am hopeful about his talents! I hope they don’t mess Makino up, that’s all I’m gonna say. I don’t want a girl who looks like she could be knocked over with a leaf.
Lemme avoid homework longer and scrounge up some basic info for you and me alike.
