<Boys Over Flowers> broke the record of receiving highest ratings when it was broadcasted in South Korea. When Lee Min Ho and Koo Hye Sun went on <100% Entertainment>, ratings for the show also peaked at 0.99%. However, chairman of production company <Group 8>, Song Bing Zhun, revealed that he has no plans of filming a sequel, making it hard to see “Goo Joon Pyo” and “Geum Jan Di” again.

Three thousand fans crowded; Accident with hand-shaking event

On June 2nd, a fan meeting for Lee Min Ho and Koo Hye Sun was held at the living mall. Approximately three thousand fans crowded at the event. Fans screamed non-stop when Lee Min Ho fed a female fan some instant noodles and caringly wiped her mouth, which had green onions stuck on it. But the fan said after finishing her noodles, “I want to hug Koo Hye Sun,” making Lee Min Ho speechless. Afterwards, when Lee Min Ho and Koo Hye Sun shook hands with 160 lucky fans, fans broke the barrier, which had been set up by the staff to guard the fans. As a result, the handshaking event was ended due to the accident.

When Lee Min Ho and Koo Hye Sun were heading to San Want Hotel to eat, fans chased after them and lined up at the entrance to welcome them. Lee Min Ho was shocked, “Incredible!” During the filming of <Boys Over Flowers>, many car accidents occurred with the filming crew, where people called it the “curse of Meteor Garden”. In hope to avoid any further accidents, the production crew issued a notice to the actors/actress’ agency and requested that neither their managers nor assistances can drive for more than 7 hours a day.

“Ulzzang” turned actress, Goo Hyesun (25) and SNSD’s Yoona’s (19) faces have been analyzed as to having a “Grandmother Image” and netizens have begun with their criticism.

On the 13th, the media said, “Goo Hyesun and Yoona have similar faces” and “They both have somewhat pursed lips and when they talk, at the first glance, you are aware of a grandmother impression.” They also said, “With their fateful wrinkles, skin, and thin jawbones, they really resemble the image of an old woman.”

After the release of this news, the netizens’ reactions were divided over. Some of the contents were agreeable, but to compare two young stars with grandmothers was uncalled for.

Some netizens say, “It wasn’t only me who thought they resembled grandmothers. When Goo Hyesun talks while she eats, you can really associate her with an old lady.” Others say, “They feel like grandmothers” and have agreed with the news report. Some others say, “Yoona is only 20 years old. If you call her a grandma, don’t you think she’ll be hurt?”

The fans of both stars have also started forming their own opinions. “How dare you compare Koo Goddess (Goo Hyesun) with Yoona? It makes no sense” and “How do you see Yoona as a grandma? There’s nothing similar about these two people” and many people are posting on the Internet to defend the two stars.

Also, netizens have been posting witty comments such as “If my grandma looked like that, I would be spending the rest of my life filming ‘The Way to Home'” and “Are grandmothers ulzzangs?” Another comment that gave laughter was “Even if people say they look like grandmas, if they look the way they do, they won’t have any wishes.”
