Siapa Takut Jatuh Cinta, abbreviated as STJC, is a 2002 Indonesian soap opera produced by Prima Entertainment. The series is loosely based on the Taiwanese drama Meteor Garden (2001), which in turn is based on the Japanese manga Boys Over Flowers. The drama aired in April 2002 for around thirty episodes. It was proved to be a hit in Indonesia. The show starred Leony Vitria Hartanti (Tsukushi), Indra Bruggman (Tsukasa), Roger Danuarta (Rui), Jonathan Frizzy, and Steve Emmanuel. Rorencia Natassia, Dhini Aminarti, and Irfan Hakim also appeared in the series.
The show has been accused of plagiarizing Meteor Garden. It follows Oni (Hartanti), a tomboyish girl from a poor family, forced to intend an upper-class school by her mother. She clashes with the school's ruling clique lead by Indra (Bruggman). He starts to develop feelings for Oni, but she likes his friend Roger (Danuarta). Reportedly, though the premise is the same, the rest of the series is supposed to have deviated from Meteor Garden.
- According to Teejay Marquez, the production was unable to obtain the copyright as it was too expensive. He also insisted that the story is the same as Meteor Garden, though the names are changed.
- Verrell Bramasta's drama Putri untuk Pangeran (2020), also starring Ranty Maria, has drawn comparisons with Meteor Garden.
