Boys Before Flowers Japan Promotions in Vain?

Korean drama Boys Before Flowers promotion in Japan recently might be severely affected following the arrest of SMAP member, Tsuyoshi Kusanagi early this morning on suspicion of public indecency in a park in Tokyo’s Minato-ku. He was apparently seen naked and sitting in the park by a local resident at 3am this morning who called the police subsequently. When cornered by the police, Kusanagi who appeared to be severely intoxicated shouted out incomprehensible statements and even said, “What’s so bad about being naked?”. He was subsequently hauled off to the police station and has admitted to the allegations filed against him.

What implications does this have for Boys Before Flowers? Programs hosted by Kusanagi including SMAPXSMAP, etc could be stopped. And this does not affect just Boys Before Flowers only because the programs that Kusanagi hosts are representative programs that introduce Korean stars to Japanese viewers. This is not only a big blow to Japanese tv stations but also to Korean stars doing promotions in Japan. But Boys Before Flowers will be the worst hit at the moment as they had visited Japan not too long ago for promotions. Because of this unfortunate incident, their recording of SMAPXSMAP might not see daylight at all, rendering their Japan promotions meaningless and severely hampering the success of the drama broadcast in Japan. Discussions are now underway between the various tv stations.

All is not lost though, as the Boys Before Flowers cast have recorded a 30 minute talkshow with TBS Sakasusan. Initially it was mistaken that F4 and Goo Hye Sun were given less than two minutes of air-time. But it was later made known that they had arrived late for the live show and had only arrived at the very last moment. The 30 minute talkshow recorded after the end of the live broadcast will be shown very soon.

Korean F4 on Japanese talk show

boys-over-flowers-0441Korean F4 (Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum and Kim Joon) and Gu Hye Sun went to Japan on April 15 to promote their drama Boys Before Flowers. They appeared in a Japanese talk show called Sakaseusang. The TBS Sakaseusang live TV talk show was shot in Akasaka, Japan.

F4 and Gu Hye Sun arrived just minutes before the live talkshow came to an end. Fans were quite disappointed to only be able to see the Korean actors for only 2 minutes. The host only managed to squeeze in a couple of questions to Kim Hyun Joong who replied in Japanese. He’s the only one who is fluent in Japanese.

After the program went off air, it has been reported that there was an additional 30 minutes where the Boys Before Flowers cast were interviewed and interacted with fans. The 30-minute clip has yet to be aired on Sakaseusang. However, below are some of the questions that were asked…

Where do you want to go first in Japan?

Kim Bum & Lee Min Ho: Harajuku
Kim Joon: Roppongi
Gu Hye Sun: Ueno Park
Kim Hyun Joong: Because I love beef, I really want to try deopbapin 덮밥인 famous beef bowl, “gyudong” 규동(牛丼) that I heard it’s very delicious (KHY replied in fluent Japanese)

Do you have any memorable memories in Japan?

Lee Min Ho: I’ve been to Nolreoon 2 years ago with a friend, and I didn’t know how expensive the taxi fare was from Tokyo airport to Shibuya. That was the price I won’t ever forget. (laughs)

[ The cab fare from the airport to downtown Shibuya is a close equal to the price of a round-trip air fare from Korea – Japan!]

What are your memories after working on the drama?

Kim Joon: Everyone was friendly on the set.
Kim Bum: Although the shooting schedule was physically and mentally taxing, it was a happy and fun time for me.
Lee Min Ho: Since the drama was shot in winter, many of us were suffering from cold. There was even one scene where I had to jump into a swimming pool on a cold wintry night. Because of that, i was eventually admitted to the hospital for a couple of days!
Kim Hyun Joong: I suffered from lack of sleep and was pretty much exhausted during the filming of the drama.

Lastly, Gu Hye Sun was asked who is her favourite F4 member and she replied Lee Min Ho and Kim Hyun Joong. (I’m not surprised…because those are the two she had to work the most with, and whom she had to kiss too! 😉

The BOYS OVER FLOWER story continues..

The Boys Over Flowers story is set to continue on April 28th with a special edition. The story continues with the F4 five years later. Goo Jun Pyo’s fro isn’t as curly and there’s no sign of leading lady Geum Jandi. While Kim Hyun Joong is there as Ji Hoo sunbae, his scenes are from the drama when he had longer hair. It is set to be a music drama, an extended music video? Netizens are grateful for the cast putting together something like this during their busy schedules. The video appeared on a Naver blog user Planet905, which looks like Kim Joon/T-Max’s representative company.

It will be nice to see what the Shinhwa School alumni have been up to five years down the road.

“Boys over Flower” gets dissed in Japan

Er…a single measly minute on national television? That’s probably not even worth going to the studio for.

But, troopers of “Boys over Flowers” are willing to go at any length to promote their drama in Japan.  On the TBS variety program, “Sakasusan” in Japan, the cast was introduced to the audience at the end of the show. The MC asked 2 questions, “How do you like Japan?” and “Can you speak Japanese” to which Kim Hyun-joong stepped up to answer. And then the show was over.

Korean netizens are pissed off at the unfairness. But, who really cares? To the Japanese producers of the show, obviously the adapted version of their own manga is not worth their time.

Reply to this topicStart new topic > YWCA calls ‘Boys over Flowers’ failure

7b2682f0f86c198e826e46fSeoul YWCA called the KBS drama “Boys over Flowers” an “absolute failure” in its latest monitoring report.

According to a group of university students who participated in the assessment of the drama, the Cinderella story became immensely popular thanks to its good-looking cast and easy-to-understand storyline.

However, the group pointed out that the drama failed to deliver more than a worn-out story involving violence in school, teenagers indulging in pleasure and prejudice toward others based on their appearance and social class. It added that the leading female character named Geum Jan-di particularly failed to convince being passive and dependent, yet cocky at times.

The report concluded that the 25-part drama series was the epitome of materialism and the Cinderella complex, and has set a bad example for Korean dramas.
