[News] 2 Years Ago, DBSK was Asked to Cast as F4-DBSK/TVXQ/Tohoshinki

There’s is not one person that doesn’t know KBS2 drama Boys Over Flowers which is a big hit in Korea right now. Ever since it’s airing debut, BOF easily reached the second highest rating. Episode ratings has since been increasing until it surpasses 30% at episode 10, beating the strongest rival, MBC’s East Of Eden.

But who knows that, 2 years ago – while the drama was still being planned – Dong Bang Shin Ki was offered the role as the legendary F4?

A senior official from SM Entertainment agency revealed, “When the publisher was in planning to produce the Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango into a Korean drama, they wanted to cast DBSK as F4, and the plan had been spesifically discussed.”

DBSK’s roles in the drama was a big topic, but unfortunately, then came some production problems, delayed investment, and not mention DBSK’s overseas activities in Japan and Korea and others, made it impossible to spare time for the drama shooting.

Even though they didn’t make it, but it’s still fun to guess which DBSK member gets which role in the 4 men of F4, right?

F4’s leader, Goo Joon-pyo’s role (Lee Min-ho) might be given to DBSK’s leader U-Know Yunho. With the same appearance as the character, Micky Yoochun was expected to play the charming guy Yoon Ji-ho (Kim Hyun Joong). The genius potter heroes and playboys So Yin Jung (Kim Bum) would be Youngwoong Jaejoong and Xiah Junsu. While Choikang Changmin’s personality fits the role of F4 member Song Woo-bin.
