Boys Before Flowers a failure

An article on the Korea Herald stated that the YWCA, a group whose mission is to promote ethnic diversity and empower women, viewed the hit drama Boys Before Flowers as a total flop.

 


I have not watched the drama, but I did read the manga. I was curious to hear your thoughts. Below is what the article stated:

“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.”

– From the Korea Herald

Did it fail? Well, I suppose if you don’t count the ratings. But it’s all about the ratings, isn’t it?What do you think K-poppers?
