No matter how many new Korean, Japanese, or Taiwanese dramas come our way, there will never be a show that made an impact like “Meteor Garden” did in the early 2000s.
Everyone LOVED the F4, and our after-school activities back then mostly composed of daydreaming about meeting any one of the members, and of course, shipping Shan Cai and Dao Ming Si like craaaaazy.
Well, there’s going to be a remake of the series this year, and while nothing and NO ONE can ever replace the original cast, it’s definitely easy to fall head over heels in love with the new generation F4.
Take a look at the differences between the past and present cast:
1. Jerry Yan and Dylan Wang as Dao Ming Si
While Dylan doesn’t have the same iconic pineapple haircut Jerry sported in the original series, he still has that charismatic bad boy look down pat.
2. Vic Zhou and Darren Chen as Hua Ze Lei
Both Vic and Darren have those soft, puppy dog eyes that make everyone melt!!! Ka-in love mga besh!
3. Vic Zhou and Connor Leong as Mei Zuo
Vic mastered the playboy look in his time, while Connor is more like a softboy. No matter the difference, they are both devastatingly handsome!!!
4. Ken Chu and Caesar Wu as Xi Men
Inarguably the most underrated F4, both Ken and Caesar are cuties in their own right and should be given the proper attention they deserve!!!
5. And finally, Barbie Hsu and Shen Yue as Shan Cai
Barbie is more femme fatale while Shen Yue is more innocent schoolgirl, but we’re sure she can fill the shoes of Shan Cai perfectly! Plus, if you can’t wait for the new series, you can watch Shen Yue in “A Love so Beautiful” in ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold!
Here’s a bonus pic of the past and present F4 for more kilig vibes:
