Boys Over Flowers – Episodes 18 & 19 Previews

Update (3/9):

Episode 19 preview, translated from KBS:

“Jun Pyo. If the person you love is put into a difficult situation because of you… can you let her go?”
“You…. Do you think you can love anyone besides for Seo Hyun?”

After running out of the clinic, Ji Hu wanders in the rain, distressed, and then collapses into Jan Di’s arms. As Jan Di nurses him overnight, her heart feels increasingly troubled; at the same time, Jun Pyo’s becomes more and more unsettled while waiting at her place.

After receiving her proposal for a date, Yi Jeong makes Ga Eul feel hurt and uncomfortable due to his continual interactions with other females. However, since finding out about Yi Jeong’s inner (emotional) pain, she looks upon Yi Jeong with pity.

When Chairwoman Kang finds out about Jun Pyo’s whereabouts, she orders that he be put on house arrest and then pays a visit to Jan Di’s rooftop room. Unable to restrain herself, she insults Jan Di in front of Ji Hu, Woo Bin, and Ji Hu. To cheer her up, the F3 and Ga Eul return the next day to throw a remodelling event for Jan Di’s “Love House”. Jae Gyeong, who has managed to get JunΒ  Pyo out of the house, also joins in [with him]. Within the harmonious atmosphere they begin to play a game of “Truth”; however, strained emotions arise.

Update (3/7):

Episode 19’s eight-minute preview is available here. (Thanks to iloveBOF for the link!) A summary of the important points are below.

  • Jae Gyeong asks Jun Pyo which he would choose – love or friendship – if he could only pick one.
  • The F3 come over uninvited to Jan Di’s new place for a housewarming. Just as Ji Hu brings up Jun Pyo’s name, someone else knocks on the door.
  • As Jan Di’s brother leaves for the seaside where their parents are, he tells Jan Di, “I think he still likes you”. He says it while he’s on the train and Jan Di is on the platform, so she doesn’t understand him.
  • Yi Jeong is with Ga Eul as she works on pottery at the studio. However, his mood goes dark when he sees the necklace that Ga Eul is planning to make – Eun Jae’s puzzle piece. He angrily demands her to tell him where she got it. When she responds that it’s her teacher’s, he leaves. (Apparently, Ga Eul still hasn’t clued in to all of the hints that Eun Jae has dropped regarding her first love.)
  • Before leaving for the States, Jun Hee introduces Jan Di as a new maid to the head maidservant.

The character of Tama in Hana Yori Dango is the most senior of servants. Tama is played by Kim Young Ok (Glory of Family, Strongest Chil Woo) who has been in over a dozen dramas in only the past five years.


Episode 18’s eight-minute preview is available here.

Episode 18 preview, translated from KBS:

“That young lady is like a lotus flower that can make mud clear. Hold her dearly (in high esteem). She’s a lotus who can make a family for you.” — Buddhist monk to Ji Hu

As her mind struggles with all the events that occurred at the resort, Jan Di finds temporary peace at a Buddhist temple that she visits with Ji Hu on their way back to Seoul. However, when she arrives home, she is greeted with the news that her parents have decided to move to a fishing village.

Jun Pyo hears about the particulars regarding Jan Di’s [shoulder] injury from Yi Jeong and belatedly feels both guilt and regret. Jan Di, who has moved into a rooftop room [with her brother], is surprised when Jun Pyo unexpectedly shows up as her neighbour.

Ga Eul takes courage from her conversation with Eun Jae when she is told that it isn’t good for love to remain hidden or suppressed, and asks Yi Jeong out on a date. He firmly rejects her, but then turns up a few days later with a resolute expression in front of Ga Eul as she is leaving work.

General spoilers:

  • Jan Di is thrown from seeing Jae Gyeong and Jun Pyo together. Seeing that Jan Di feels depressed, Ji Hu comforts her.
  • Jun Pyo ultimately rejects Jae Gyeong’s advances. Jae Gyeong sits in her room alone, gloomily eating ice cream as she realizes that Jun Pyo must have been Jan Di’s boyfriend.
  • The next morning, she tells Jan Di that she didn’t get any sleep because her and Jun Pyo had an eventful (“historic”) night together. She says that Jun Pyo left early because he was embarrassed and that she’s leaving now to follow him “like a thread follows a needle”. Once Jae Gyeong leaves Ji Hu and Jan Di’s presence, she sheds tears.
  • Jan Di and Ji Hu visit a Buddhist temple and make wishes for each other- (he wishes for her university acceptance and she wishes for his happiness).
  • Jan Di’s parents find work by the coast and move to the seaside where Jan Di’s uncle lives, leaving Jan Di and her brother to find a cheap place to live in.
  • Jun Pyo moves into a nearby room (presumably to watch over Jan Di’s safety).
  • During pottery class, Eun Jae and Ga Eul converse. Eun Jae encourages Ga Eul to confess her feelings to the person she likes. Eventually, Ga Eul goes to Yi Jeong’s house and surprises him by asking him out on a date. He initially turns her down.

Unconfirmed spoilers:

  • Some information is revealed regarding Woo Bin’s family background.
  • KP’s note: In the extended preview, Ga Eul asks Eun Jae if she ever confessed her love to the boy, and Eun Jae smiles and answers, “Hmm… confess? Did I confess?” as if she’s not quite sure. I’m guessing that like the Japanese version, Eun Jae had tried to indirectly confess her love in the past, but Yi Jeong didn’t see or realize it. If they follow the Japanese manga and drama, Ga Eul will be the one who shows Yi Jeong that Eun Jae loved him.

    March 6, 2009 at 1:10 am

  6. Thanks for the preview. Though I’ve seen Taiwan’s and Japan’s version, this version is still very enjoyable and managed to create its own unique feel. And kudos to the production team for picking a good if not the best Korean cast.


    March 6, 2009 at 3:14 am

  7. Hahaa… cant wait to see JP as JD’s neighbour
    Some comic relief please, I hope!!!

    Both are great fighting, right?! ^^


    March 6, 2009 at 4:05 am

  8. OMG GJP and GJD as neighbours this should be hillarious to watch hahhahh….specially GJP who’s bathroom is bigger than GJD’s current
    Please we need more JP and JD moments…..i’m tired of the crying….
    hope the actress is doing great after her accident….


    March 6, 2009 at 10:41 am

  9. you’re right I’m a little bit tired of seeing Jandi being humiliated by GJP fiancee and his mom. It’s time that
    GJD be happy, For her accident hope all the cast will be safeguarded by their managers. Let them enjoy filming
    by not getting an accident. We want to see more of their acting talents in the future. I want to see more on GHS – LMH
    movie in the coming years . GJD you are the best , you are so natural in your way of delivering your lines.
    Most of all you have that natural beauty that seldom we find in most of the actresses now a days.As I have seen Asian beauties are really natural. by nature. I was trying to write a novel in title ” to the one I love ” for you GHS_LMH but I did not finish it yet. When I finish it I will personally send it to you, I don’t know I just very fond of you two. You will be a good couple age doesn’t matter any way wheb it comes to love…he. he he….


    March 6, 2009 at 11:14 am

  10. I’d be thrilled if they’ll give us at least a glimpse into Woobin’s family even for just one episode. Hopefully the PD and scriptwriter would stop playing favorites and not drag the love square angle for ages.


    March 7, 2009 at 12:29 am

  11. Response to abby above;
    I too agree that GHS has suffered alot in this storyline…and GPYo has been been humiliated so many times…Trust the Korean Version will bring the Justice to Jan-Di as she stands up for Justice….Bringing JPyo into her world is really Cinder-man storyline. I believe in casts systems world-wide it will make a statement loud and clear. So glad he will live next doorto Jan-di…GJP is learning Jan-di world that he was oblivious too. It is a wise way to be Ji-Hoo and become her guardian angel that walks her beat 24/7…

    Ji hoo is so price-less to all ladies…he does it so well in this story.

    Lastly, Lee Min Ho was the perfect cast for BBF and GHS was the perfectly casted…what an angelic face and her eyes-are so magnetically atractive, in all her facial communication. It is a given wonder that GJP falls in love with her from the very start of story..

    GHS you are angelic and so very talented. PD did a great job in casting her….


    March 7, 2009 at 3:25 am

  12. Totally excited to watch episode 18 onwards.. Bet it’s gonna be lots of funny and hilarious moments when both GJP and GJD live next door.. That’s really sweet of GJP to stay close to GJD though he has alot of obstacles (with his control freak mum and irritating fiance) as he wants to indirectly look after her.. Wow… If this happens in real life, having 2 guys to care and love you.. It’s great! Hahaha…


    March 7, 2009 at 5:27 am

  13. yey…i found it!!!
    episode 19 preview:

    though it doesn’t have eng sub, but it’s okay:))


    March 7, 2009 at 5:45 am

  14. I am so psyched about episode 18 and onwards, i just think thats its getting better. just like you guys im hoping for a more spot light to Woo Bin’s family.

    as of now i dont know what to root for, Jun pyo x jan di or Ji hoo x Jan di. lets face it Ji hoo is a much better boyfriend material than Jun Pyo, no matter how much he loves jan di. πŸ™‚

    i watched the preview for ep 19. and they are doing the maid thing.
    GJD is so cute in a maid’s uniform. πŸ™‚

    I’m just hoping during the 2nd season they wont show the amnesia
    plot thing because it is absolutely USELESS.i was just annoyed when they showed that crap of a plot in meteor garden.hoping they wont show it here, or else the story will be completely destroyed.

    kudos to the creators of BOYS OVER FLOWERS.


    March 7, 2009 at 9:45 am

  15. P.S. i hate jun pyo’s fiancee or whatever.


    March 7, 2009 at 9:47 am

  16. Yup, i agree about that fiancee… in my opinion she(her character) gets really annpying as time goes by… i think its about time for her to exit the drama… maybe in ep20 the “wedding” scene, she will be the one who will walk out… although, im really rooting for jandi-junpyo wedding at the end…


    March 7, 2009 at 12:15 pm

  17. OMG! I just cannot wait until the new episodes come out. And I am definitely counting on buying the DVD set when it comes out. My favorite Korean drama! The episodes look good!


    March 7, 2009 at 1:36 pm

  20. I can’t wait for all those episodes if i were GJP and since he love jandi so much he just make jandi have baby (Hehehe) although her mom will kill him doing this and spread the news all over the country through live tv station and knee down and ask jandi to marry him! I bet his mom won’t stop him and all the people who are watching this new will support him! And also tell jandi what he feels instead saying very rude word coz she will never know what your thinking! Hope in the end will be a nice ending! πŸ˜‰


    March 9, 2009 at 8:53 am

  21. I like BOF especially story about Yi Jeong & Ga Eul…can’t wait to see episode 18 & 19….Go BOF!!


    March 9, 2009 at 8:54 am

  22. I like BOF especially story about Yi Jeong & Ga Eul…can wait to see episode 18 & 19….Go BOF!!


    March 9, 2009 at 9:02 am

  23. Well,(my opinion only) I have always been a strong supporter of jandi and joonpyo, but this recent events finds me in favor of jihu and jandi… I feel that joonpyo has brought nothing but pain towards jandi.. they lost thier drycleaning bussiness, she cant swim, she has been insulted from head to toe, and to top it off her heart has been broken into several million pieces over and over by him… what exactly has she done to deserve all of this? SHE LOVED HIM ENOUGH to go against his sadistic mom, but JP cant even be honest with her and tell her why he had to do things the way he did… im sorry, its just pis^%$g me off big time the way she has to go through hell over and over… when you love someone you fight for her… if you have no guts to do it then, let her go.. stop pestering her/holding on to her beacuse by doing this it will make it even harder for her to move on… I dont like the way this drama is always making jandi look so pathetic… STOP ALEADY HASNT THE GIRL BEEN THROUGH HUMILIATION TO LAST HER SEVERAL LIFETIMES?!!!

    Jihu is a really good guy and she loved him before… time heals all wounds, im sure she will learn to love him again… he needs her in his life so much… and i do believe that both of them will be happy together.. she is strong and outspoken, he is gentle and loving.. total opposite, but well match… i know for a fact that he will take care of her and will be with her no matter what the situation callS for…


    March 9, 2009 at 3:49 pm

  24. does anyone know where episode 18 is????


    March 9, 2009 at 11:29 pm

  25. Do you remember in like episode 5 when Jandi had that dream and it was like your soulmate and your husband will be 2 different people? Dude when that monk was talking to JiHoo that is what totally came into mind! What if the Korean Version will change it up and make Jandi and JiHoo end up together?
    But honestly like right about now I dont mind it. the JunpyoJandi story is getting a bit thrown in the background. I almost feel like I should be supporting for Junpyo-Jaekyung and Jandi-JiHoo


    March 9, 2009 at 11:38 pm

  26. well for me jun pyo and jan di forever!!!


    March 10, 2009 at 2:52 am

  27. Yeah no matter what Jan-di and Jun-pyo always together…
    No matter how good Ji-hoo is and no matter how monkey Jae-kyung can be…

    Even the gap between them is getting bigger but the more they are apart the more they want to be together, right? And seriously the anticipation for them to reunite is getting higher and higher… so when they do end up together, what a great feel that was and what a relieve… we’d go and say ahhhh finally!


    March 10, 2009 at 3:53 am

  28. I really don’t get it on why do some ppl want to push this Jandi-Jihoo pair and Junpyo-Jaekyung pair? Seriously?!! Wake up and smell the grass

    We all know the story… and from what I see so far, Jandi only see Jihoo as her friend, not more than that… What Jihoo doing here is actually mirrors to what she was doing for him, back when he was in love with Seo Hyun… Not more than just returning a favour, and in the way he really fell for her but too bad coz she is in love with Junpyo. She knows it… and Jihoo knows it… everybody knows it…

    And for Junpyo, with that monkey, even the chemistry do sparks a bit, but he only sees her as a potential friend… someone that he can relate to.

    For the first part we’d see how Junpyo suffers to get her attention. And this time around, it’s Jandi’s turn. Right?
