On this unfortunate day where the headlines would be swamped with the untimely death of Choi Jin Shil, Group Eight has chosen this day to revealed the highly-anticipated casting list for F4 in the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango.
Actor Lee Min Ho is casted as Goo Joon Pyo (Tsukasa Domyoji), Kim Hyun Joong as expected is Yoon Ji Hoo (Rui Hanazawa), Kim Bum is So Lee Jung (Sojiroh Nishikado) while relatively unknown Kim Joon of T-MAX is Song Yu Bin (Akira Mimasaka). No mention of who is playing the female Makino yet.
Casting for the rest will be finalized soon and filming will commence in mid-October with an overseas shoot. The 24 episode drama will be shown after “The World That They Live In” in the Mon-Tue timeslot towards the end of December. Good luck going up against the mammoth “East of Eden”.
