Boys Over Flowers – Episode 17 Preview

Update (2/28): Episode 17’s eight-minute preview is available here. Episode 18 preview will be posted separately shortly.

Episode 17 preview, translated from KBS website:

“Don’t forget. There’s a bond (love)that only comes once in a lifetime. The real thing only comes once. It’s another cruel truth.”Yi Jeong’s father

As momentum builds for the merger of Shin-hwa Group and JK Group, Jun Pyo and Jae Gyeong go on their first date. Unfortunately, each part of the date that Jae Gyeong has planned reminds Jun Pyo of Jan Di. Jae Gyeong senses Jun Pyo’s thoughts [of someone else] and feeling insecure, demands a kiss. Ji Hu and Jan Di are conversing on the emergency exit stairwell at the time and witness the two…….

When Yi Jeong comes across his father with another woman in Yi Jeong’s own workshop, he has a big argument with his dad. In the midst of his troubled mood, vague memories of his first love Eun Jae arise. Out of her feelings for Yi Jeong, Ga Eul decides to enroll for pottery lessons. After she registers, she meets Cha Eun Jae, a student-teacher with a lovely smile.


News flash! Yi Jeong’s brother:

Lim Joo Hwan - So Il Hyun

Im Ju Hwan - So Il Hyun

Actor Im Ju Hwan (or Im Joo Hwan, A Frozen Flower) has been cast for the character of Yi Jeong’s brother, So Il Hyun. The drama creator said Im Ju Hwan was chosen because he fit the character’s image perfectly. Im will appear [starting] on episode 17.

Il Hyun  had a bright future ahead as a pottery artist. However, during his university years, he quit art and got job as a barista. (According to some sources, he quit upon discovery of his younger brother’s great talent.) He has been gaining recognition as a barista an antique cafe. Il Hyun lives an easygoing, bohemian life.

News flash! Cha Eun Jae:

Park Soo Jin - Cha Eun Jae

Park Soo Jin - Cha Eun Jae

Singer Park Soo Jin (of girl group Sugar) will play Cha Eun Jae, Yi Jeong’s first love, who was partly responsible for his current dating habits and his jaded view on love. She will appear in three episodes, beginning in episode 17.

(KP’s note: huge spoiler ahead! According to news sources…) Although Eun Jae loved Yi Jeong when she was younger, nothing came of it because he thought she was in love with his older brother. When Yi Jeong meets her again, he finds out that she is now actually his brother’s girlfriend. Although he denied believing in a single fated love to Ga Eul, Eun Jae indirectly reveals Yi Jeong’s true view on love and destiny. She also contributes to Ga Eul and Yi Jeong’s growing relationship.

Spoilers for episode 17!

  • Jan Di works hard at various jobs in order to help out her parents, but collapses while in front of Ji Hu at the art centre. He watches over her at her bedside, and kisses her hand.
  • Jun Pyo and Jae Gyeong go on a date to Namsan. However, thoughts of Jan Di keep rising in Jun Pyo’s mind.
  • Due to Jun Pyo’s continual inattention, Jae Gyeong demands that Jun Pyo proves that he likes her. This results in a kiss on campus – witnessed by Jan Di and Ji Hu.
  • Assuming that Jan Di and Ji Hu are a couple, Jae Gyeong persuades them to go on a double date with herself and Jun Pyo. They leave for an impromptu holiday.
  • Jae Gyeong has prepared couple rings that say J&J for her and Jun Pyo.
  • Jan Di collapses in the pool while trying to pick up her necklace. In contrast to the manga, Jun Pyo (not Ji Hu) jumps in to save her. When Jan Di expresses surprise at Jun Pyo being able to swim, he explains about the time in New Caledonia when he could only stand by and watch as Ji Hu saved Jan Di. He says, “I learned how to swim because I thought it’d be easier to face drowning in water rather than watching another guy save you first again.” Jan Di is touched by his confession, while Jae Gyeong feels miserable. As Jun Pyo carries Jan Di to [her? his?] room, Ji Hu blocks his path and takes her away.
  • Jae Gyeong finds Jan Di’s necklace with the engraving J*heart*J.

    February 25, 2009 at 10:10 pm

  5. I don’t understand why JP don’t tell JD the real happening, so that JD can play along with his witch mother’s game. I thought JP sister will be there to help in their relationship.

  17. not looking forward to the kiss, hope its not painful to see, and that its her that forces herself on him and not him to initiate the kiss, cos i would collapse for GJD’ sake

  18. wish to see Jan Di accepted Ji Hu love, went she realize Jae Gyeong is more suitable to Jun Pyo, and happen Shin-wah and JK group having financal attacked, both company was joint venture togather, after a years Jun Pyo fell in love with Jae Gyeong.

    Feel sad if Jan Di cannot accept Ji Hu love, as Ji Hu already love Jan Di botton of his heart which already be her side if something happen to her.

    Jae Gyeong she is a nice girl, please don’t let her get nothing after she put all heart to Jun Pyo.

    Sorry just only a comment, that feel Ji Hu should get something after give out so much of love with Jan Di, which I can’t bear to let him sad after he lost both parents of hus young age, with love of his parents, and now finally he found someone that he love.

    aooal 🙂

    February 28, 2009 at 12:25 pm

  23. Lanie,
    Correction! Our source (who claims that he has now read the script, believe it or not) has updated and said that Jan Di dropped the necklace in the pool by ACCIDENT. Jae Gyeong sees it later and picks it up.

    February 28, 2009 at 4:05 pm

  25. Oh my God! Poor Ga Eul!!! She’s naive, innocent… Why doesn’t Yi Jung refuse her date???

    I hope Ga Eul and Yi Jung will have a happy ending. Their relationship will develop better from friendship to love.


    March 1, 2009 at 12:48 am

  26. Thanks for spoilers and some breaking news. I am really anxious about Yi Jeong and Ga Eul ship. Because this version don’t like manga so I can’t guess what happen next to So-Eul . OMG, I hope everything will be all right soon and Ep 17 + 18 will be on air usually.

  31. Thank you for the constant spoilers’ updates on the up-coming episodes! I found myself coming back to this web-page hungry for more information after every episode has been uploaded on the Internet.


    March 1, 2009 at 7:24 pm

  32. Question??? (EP15) Did Ji Hu found out that Ming swap the picture inside the wallet??? which ep 16 did not have an detail shown, Did Jan Di know that Ji Hu own a picture taken with her at somewhere?



    March 3, 2009 at 12:10 am

  33. I just noticed that ‘moon river’ is the ring tone on JanDi’s cell phone and it also happens to be the piano piece that lee minho is learning (and played on the F4 special) -> bet it is going to be part of some episode.


    March 3, 2009 at 2:32 am

  34. stars,
    Has he not played the piano in a broadcast episode yet?
    Because you’re probably right – Lee Min Ho said in a just-published interview that he only began taking piano lessons AFTER he was cast as Jun Pyo. He said that he learned how to play in order to make the scene (where he plays) look authentic.
