Meteor Garden 2018 considers Song Wei Long, Vivian Sung, Huang Jun Jie

First round of rumored casting is revealed for the new Chinese remake of popular Japanese shōjo manga, Hana Yori Dango (花より男子), following our poor heroine as she fights against the elite group of rich boys known as F4 at a privilege school and falling for two of said boys. Offers are out to Song Wei Long, Vivian Sung, and Huang Jun Jie. I’m sure you recognize those names by now but if you don’t, click more for their pictures! I’m happy it’s Vivian because I’m assured of her acting ability. The boys….well….They are pretty…

Song Wei Long as F4 Leader. You might remember him as Yumama’s newly promoted actor in Demon Girl 2 and Long for You.

He and Vivian (And Huang Jun Jie!) shot a movie together last year, called Three Good Bad Students (三好差生). This is like another package deal…

Playing the gentle and at times confusing second lead boy is Huang Jun Jie. You might remember him as the gentle white fox in Ping Li Hu.

Poster. Ah, I can envision Jerry Yan’s chicken hair as the boy on the far right. Aww. Memories.

The original producer for Meteor Garden 16 years ago – Chai Zhi Ping will be in charge (I hope I’m not confused and there aren’t two new remakes). She reminisces the old times with Barbie Hsu on weibo, who will also have a surprising guest role. 🙂 Will she be the MOM? LOL.

    I can totally see Vivian as the fearless and spunky Makino, she can act as well so that’s a spot-on casting for me. The boys definitely look pretty enough to look like they belong in F4. Song Wei Long’s acting has been wooden from what I’ve seen of him but I guess that’s sort of given for pretty boy actors these days. Hope they ditch Domyouji’s hair though, it’s iconic but I don’t need a repeat of Lee Minho’s tragic hairstyle.

    I’m surprised Vivian was offered the role but somehow I don’t want her to accept it. I like her, I really do, as she’s one of the young ones who can act and I know she can nailed the role easily…. BUT I wish she branches out of the “school” type of dramas that she’s been picking ever since Our Times. PLUS I sort of want a “new” face female for the lead role.

    As for the guys, Song Wei Long is such eye-candy but that’s about it…so not sure he can make Domyouji as lovable as the predecessors.
    I watched all 3 versions of this series except the Zheng Shuang’s one? I tried to but it was a bit too weird for my taste and I knew the story by heart. I really wonder if this remake will STILL be POPULAR as it was several years ago? Who knows? If it’s executed well, I’ll probably tune in but I’ll just feel OLD watching T_T

    Dilemma. I like Vivian…. but would also like a total new face. eyoungieee is right, vivians been doing these roles foreverrrrrrrrr. i need her to break out of the student mold.

    Song Wei Long. Pretty boy. Huang Jun Jie, way prettier in in modern hair.

    Excited for Barbie’s cameo!!

    I really like Vivian and she is perfect casting as Makino but I agree with the commentators above that she needs to branch out from these roles because she is very talented and it will be a shame if she is typecast… BUT then again if this a big hit like all its predecessors then it will give her more opportunity to pick a wider variety of projects so I’m torn.

    Song Wei Long is so tall and gorgeous but I’ve never seen him act and Domyouji is a difficult character to get the right balance for onscreen. I wonder if they’ll do Domyouji’s famous curls. The only actor whose ever managed to make the hair work was MatsuJun in HYD 2 and the movie. Lee Min Ho and Jerry Yan’s hairstyles were just tragic.

    Barbie’s going to cameo. OMG! She still looks amazing. Could she play Domyouji’s sister maybe?

      That cracks me up Majesty! Barbie beating the crap out of her brother. HEHEHE.

      That might just be the perfect comeback role. 😉

    How many remakes do we need of this story? If you like Jdramas, there’s two seasons of it for you. A Kdrama fan? There’s a version for you too. Want a C-version too? Yep, there’s one of those too.

    The point is, the story is overdone and needs to be left alone. Not to mention, all Taiwan has been doing since Meteor Garden are these types of stories. Poor girl meets rich guy, they fall in love, rich guy’s mom doesn’t approve, the second male lead is pining for the poor main girl, etc.

    Unless they get the original Taiwan F4 and Barbie to do a cameo together, I’ll be passing on this for sure.

    After watching my first live action adaptation of a manga (Japanese), Meteor Garden was my first ever Taiwanese drama and second Asian drama overall. I fell hard for it. Not sure how I feel about this.

    Thank you for sharing the news.

    I like the cast of Our Times, they have great chemistry..but in my head Our Times collide with Miss in Kiss and Master Devil don’t kiss me and Bromance.. if it goes my way the cast would be..

    Vivian Sung as SanCai
    Darren Wang as Dao Ming Si

    Xi Wei Lun as Ke Huan Ru (the one Dao Ming Si is engaged with)
    Xing Fair as Li Zhen (SanCai’s friend that betrays her)

    Li Hong Yi as Hua Zi Lei
    Dewi Chen as Teng Tang Jing

    Dino Lee Yu Hsi as Xi Men
    Gong Yi Teng as Mei Zuo
    Katie Chen as Xiao You

    Megan Lai as Dao Ming Zhuang, Dao Ming Si’s older sister
    Vegan Tsai as Zhen Xiu, the controlling mother

    Daniel Shen as SanCai’s little brother (please let her have a brother this time)
    Ziang Jiong Min as Chen Qing He, SanCai’s trusty friend who’s also in love with her
