"Yes! Meteor Garden is being remade! An all-new Meteor Garden belonging to your youth!" - Angie Chai, creator!
As announced on Tuesday, April 11, Meteor Garden will be recreated after 16 years!
Metoer Garden which was a big hit in many asian countries shot the F4 (Jerry Yan, Vic Chou, Ken Chu and Van Ness Wu) to stardom. It was based on comic series Boys Over Flowers of Japan, which had not ended at the time of the shoot.
Back in the 2000s, Yan, Chou, Chu and Van Ness Wu had been handpicked by Chai to play F4, a gang of four elite guys at a prestigious school in Meteor Garden. The show was such a phenomenal hit that the four also recorded albums and went on concert tours as F4 the boyband.
As for the new cast, Chai told Apple Daily: "We may use new people, idols or serious actors. Everyone is welcome to offer candidates." Asked if Yan and gang will have cameos, she answered: "We'll see. We're still at the screenwriting stage."
