most popular manga-adapted series of all time. Meteor Garden is a Taiwanese
series that launched the careers of 5 unknown individuals who rose to stardom
after their portrayals in this series. They eventually became idols in Asia. And
the guys who played the lead male characters became reel to real F4, a very
popular Taiwanese boyband (now, they're launching their solo careers). This
drama was aired on CTS in April 2001.
Here are the
names of the actors and actresses that took part in this series:
(I've provided pics taken from the
series so you can differentiate them with the manga characters..^^)
the guys that played as F4 (Click the pic to enlarge) [Do you think they're good-looking enough to portray the
series consists of three parts - Meteor Garden, Meteor GardenII (a sequel) and
Meteor Rain which is a three chapter special about the untold lives of three of the
major characters in MG. As for Meteor Garden, the drama was 90% faithful to the
manga. They made some changes to many of the somewhat "unbelievable"
scenes and it turned out really well. If you'll ask me about the sequel,
unfortunately, it was a nightmare. Ms. Angie Chai Zhi Ping came up with her own
script since the manga wasn't finished yet at that time. Ms. Kamio Yoko gave rights to
Ms. Chai for her to produce her own script beyond the manga. If
you were very satisfied with the first series, abandon this one! It'll ruin all
girl is Michelle Saram [Zheng Xue Er] who played the role of Ye Sha, the usual third
party [but more irritating!!!]...^^ (You may say that she's the equivalent of Umi Nakajima in the
add some spice to this page, I'll menton some of the differences between the
manga and the drama series. These are just a few of them..^^
original manga, Tsukushi and the rest of the F4 guys are just highschool
students. However, in the series, they were students from Ying De
University. I personally think that it would be better if they were still
high school students because it shows how much influence and power F4 had
in their school. They're not wearing uniforms like normal students. But in
the series, all of the students are wearing casual clothes in school. Pic1>>
the manga, Domyouji's hair is wavy but uncurls when wet. In the series, Ah
Si's hair is "standing up" and at the latter part of the series,
he brushed it down like the rest of the guys. I think the hair stylists
had a hard time curling his hair so they came up with that "standing
hair" idea (or maybe curly locks don't look good on Jerry..^^).
Anyway, I don't think it's a bad idea after all.
manga, when Rui saved Tsukushi from a buch of attackers, he first carried
her, then Doumyouji pulls her legs. Rui doesn't want to let go of her arms
so she ended up being pulled in the arms and in the legs. Since it will
look utterly funny when done in real life, Lei pulls Shancai's arm while Ah Si
pull the other thus, puts her in a middle of a tug-of-war. Not bad... ^^
manga, there are three girls who bully Tsukushi (Asai, Yamano and
Ayuhara). In the series, there are only two (Bai He and Qian Hui). I think
manga, Tsukushi and Kazuya went to a vacation place for old pipz called
Atami to spend their summer vacation. Tsukushi's parents insisted to go
with them ^_~! Afterwards, Doumyouji and his crew followed, riding in a
luxurious ship. In the drama, there was no vacation place but only the
ship. No parents were also with them.
manga, there's Susumu, Tsukushi's younger brother. In MG, Shan Cai is the
series, Makiko's and Sakurako's characters were combined into one, thus
producing Li Zhen.
original manga, Doumyouji waited patiently for Tsukushi under the snow. In
the series, Ah Si waited for Shan Cai in the midst of heavy rain.
manga, Doumyouji and Tsukushi were ensnared in an elevator. In the series,
the two were locked in an emergency staircase.

manga, Tsukushi just stand alone in the corner during the party but in the
series, the rest of the F4 members excluding Doumyouji danced with her.
(Wow! lucky girl... ^^) See
Some of the
themes from the series:
This series ended up abruptly after 19 episodes eventhough the manga itself was still
running. It was such
a long, long story, wasn't it? ^^. The sequel soon came out and boy, I suggest
you watch it if you're a big F4 fan coz if otherwise, you'll just be mad as
hell. You'll surely hate it! It's not just me who can attest to that but lots
and lots of people who saw it. Here in my country many lost their appetites and
quit watching it especially the chapters in the middle. Trust me, abandon the
part two and just read the manga. But I recommend the first series. It was
