Korea looks to prove that the third time really is a charm when they finally get their own version of 'Hana Yori Dango' sometime in 2008.

The popular Japanese manga was first adapted to the television screen in Taiwan through a drama called 'Meteor Garden'. The successes of 'Meteor Garden' prompted Japan to also adapt the manga to the small screen in 2005. It was so popular in its short initial run that they ended up making a sequel. Now, in 2008, Korea will finally get its shot at remaking the popular manga into a drama.

The Korean company in charge of the considerable task of producing the drama is Group Eight. Their previous works include the dramas 'Goong: Princess Hours' and 'Fantasy Couple'. Due to those aforementioned previous works, the announcement of Group Eight as the production company was met by high expectations and great anticipation by fans.

The Korean version of 'Hana Yori Dango' is set to be 24 episodes at 70 minutes each. The tentative television premiere date is said to be sometime in the latter stages of 2008. [more]

I hope the title is different than just plain 'hana yori dango'. And I hope the main four casts are at least among "the top most gorgeous beautiful idols in Korea"
