2018 Chinese Drama Meteor Garden now on Netflix
Great news! If you haven’t heard, Netflix is now streaming Shen Yue’s latest drama Meteor Garden. The first six episodes are currently available with new episodes added every Friday.
Shen Yue stars as Shan Cai, a young woman from a poor family who enters an elite school populated by the children of the wealthiest families. Among them is the F4, the most handsome and most cruel. If you get on their bad side, you’ll be mercilessly bullied until you are forced to drop out.
Shan Cai tries to fly under the radar, but when her friend earns the wrath of the F4, she decides to step in and stand for what’s right.
This drama also stars Wang He Di as F4 leader Dao Ming Si. He is hot-tempered with a sister complex. He slowly starts to fall for the feisty Shan Cai who falls for fellow F4 member Hau Zi Lei (Darren Chen) who is in love with an older woman/childhood friend.
This is a remake of hit 2001 Taiwanese drama of the same name starring Barbie Hsu, Jerry Yan, Vic Chou, Vanness Wu, and Ken Chu. This drama was based on Japanese mana Hana Yori Dango aka Boys before Flowers or Boys Over Flowers.
This popular manga has also had two seasons in Japan (called Hana Yori Dango) with a new version airing based on a spinoff from the same mangaka, two seasons and a special offshoot in Taiwan, two unofficial seasons in China (Let’s Go Watch Meteor Showers), the super popular Korean version, the illfated Western version, and I think there are even more, but I can’t remember them all.
