First published in 1992,[1] Yoko Kamio's manga Boys Over Flowers has spawned many adaptations, including an audio drama, a film, an anime, several television dramas, as well as musicals. Its sequel manga has also had its own adaptation.

The series' has gained international fame partially from its being adapted into television dramas. The first being Meteor Garden (2001), which was produced in Taiwan and followed by two sequels.[2] Hana Yori Dango (2005), from its home country, followed in 2005. It has a television sequel and a film sequel.[1] Next, the popular Boys Over Flowers from South Korea was released in 2009.[3] Most recently, a Chinese remake of Meteor Garden aired in 2018,[4] and currently, a Thai adaptation is in production.[5]
