Kot-boda namja (꽃보다 남자) or Boys Before Flowers started airing on KBS2 earlier this month and it is currently at Episode 4. Unless you are totally oblivious to Korean entertainment, you would have known this because pictures or articles of the new Korean F4 have been popping up everywhere!
The highly anticipated drama has been getting very good response and ratings. Official ratings for episode 4 is a 21.4% high! Considering the last KBS2 drama in the Mondays – Tuesdays slot was Worlds Within, and not a single episode of its 16-episode run reached even double digit ratings. Only at the fourth episode, Boys Before Flowers has shown such good ratings. If the current trend remains, it will only go up and up.

Goo Hye Sun as Geum Jandi 금잔디 [Makino Tsukushi]
Much of the success of Boys Before Flowers is the excellent performance given by Lee Min-ho (22). Lee plays the leader of F4, Goo Joon Pyo. When i first saw him prepped for the role, i thought his perm was atrocious. But then now that the shock is over, it kinda suits him and the role he plays.

Will they end up together?
