If you’re a Kdrama head, you will be aware of the Korean drama Boys over Flowers, which was based on the 1992 Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango. The massive popularity of both the manga and the Kdrama has resulted in multiple adaptations of the same.

What to Know Before Watching?
The preview creates suspicions about the possibilities of the F4 breaking apart now that Ren and Thyme are in a cold war with each other over Gorya. As Gorya tries to understand her towards the two, Thyme absolutely resents the close nature of the relationship shared by Gorya and Ren.
As the three friends try to figure out their feelings, MJ and Kavin reprise the role of pacifiers trying to sort the problems and even questioning Thyme if it’s worth breaking their friendship for because it is clearly heard in the preview that Thyme is saying that Ren will no longer be a part of F4.
Gorya is a new student at tye Kocher High School. She is pleased to study in the same institution as that of her idol Mira. However, her expectations get marred when she learns that school students continuously live under the fear of F4, an elite group of wealthy, handsome boys Ren, Thyme, MJ, and Kavin. The boys can stoop to any limit just to bully the other person except for Ren, who seems the kindest of the four.
When Hana, Gorya’s friend, accidentally spills food on Thyme, he instructs her to lick it off his shoes. Gorya takes her stand, getting herself painted as the red target. Everyone abandons Gorya, including her friend Hana. Gorya’s mother, after seeing her daughter exhausted, gifts her new shoes.
When she wears them to school the following day, everyone keeps kicking it until she reaches the bully spot where Thyme awaits her. He takes off her shoes, cuts them, and throws them in the garbage.
