Announcement Of Boys Over Flowers PHs Cancellation Did Not Come From GMA


If you were hoping to see a remake of Pinoy Boys Over Flowers in 2018, we're sorry to say that won't happen. Plans have been scrapped for a number of reasons. The announcement of Boys Over Flowers PHs cancellation did not come from GMA.

Here's what a Meteor Garden fan page on Facebook had to say about Boys Over Flowers being canceled here in the Philippines:

Update - Philippines' Remake Of Boys Over Flower This 2018 Is Already Cancelled

A few days after the Meteor Garden 2018 Press Conference, it was reported that Boys Over Flowers Korea would be remade.

But because of the following, it was already canceled:

  • Hana Yori Dango manga, which is where the story came from in the first place, can only be made again every three years. So you can't show both versions at the same time.
  • The station bought the rights from KBS, but the rights for Boys Over Flowers Adaptation must come from the author Yoko Kamio and Sheshua Publishing House. So, they have to pay for two rights just to make a new version.
  • The same people made both Meteor Garden 2001 and Meteor Garden 2018. They even went to Japan to talk to Yoko Kamio about it.
  • If they really want to make a BOF adaptation right now, they have to pay for the copyright this year and again in 3 years.

Let's just wait until Meteor Garden 2018 comes out, guys.

So there it is. Making a remake is hard and expensive, so the local producers don't want to deal with it. Remember that they did the same thing when they turned Shaider into Zaido.
