Erika Toda as Umi

  • Erika Toda portrays Umi in two episodes of Hana Yori Dango Returns (2007).[11] Like in the manga, she meets Tsukushi and Tsukasa at the hospital she is staying at. She begins spending a lot of time with Tsukasa. Eventually, Umi confesses her feelings to Tsukasa, and tags along on the trip to the mountains. While there, Tsukasa realizes that she is not the one for him. Devastated, Umi tells Tsukushi a lie that Yuki is out in the snowstorm. She immediately regrets her actions and is thankful for their safe return. To say sorry, Umi later helps push Tsukushi's family's car.
  • She is renamed Jang Yu-mi and played by Kim Min-ji in the Korean drama, Boys Over Flowers (2009).[12]
