9 Nov – After Angie Chai's announcement back in April that she is producing a reboot of the popular drama, "Meteor Garden", it was reported that the company has finally found the four actors who will be the new F4.
As reported on Push, the new faces of actors Dylan Wang Hedi, Darren Cheng, Connor Leung, and Caesar Wu Xize were revealed by Harper's Bazaar China, which introduced them as the new stars of the upcoming show. The actors are said to have an average age of 21-years-old and are fairly new to showbiz.
Nonetheless, no details have been revealed as to which actor will play what character, especially the two lead roles of wealthy heirs Dao Mingsi and Hua Zhilei.
Based on the Japanese shojo comics, "Hana Yori Dango", the first series aired back in 2001, starring Jerry Yan, Vic Chou, Ken Zhu, and Vanness Wu, becoming one of the top Taiwanese dramas and was broadcasted across Asia at the time.
In previous reports, Angie shared that the 48-episode reboot will be a fuller and flashier adaptation of the books, with overall budget of NTD 720 million.
