Meteor Garden was one of my first dramas... I did not finish it lol but I do remember that fourteen-year-old me was obsessed with the story.. I watched/dropped BOF after this one, completed/loved Hana Yori Dango, tried reading the original manga and even endured an episode of the American version lmao.
This makes me quite nostalgic... I'm gonna check it out! And wow, I can't believe that the actors are around my same age range... this is so weird, considering this is the story my teenage self used to be addicted to.
