Meteor Garden is based on the Japanese manga series, Boys Over Flowers, which tells the story of Shan Cai, a teenage girl from a poor family who goes to a school for rich people at her parents’ insistence. There, she met four handsome but arrogant male students collectively known as F4. Dao Ming Si, F4’s leader, eventually fell in love with her.

Back in 2001, Hsu started playing the role of Shan Cai, and she has been loved by a lot of people in and out of Taiwan since then.

Those who commented on Hsu’s Instagram post assured her that she will still be remembered as Shan Cai even now when a new actress is set to portray the character in the remake.

Meanwhile, many social media users expressed support as they welcome Yue. The young actress will work with the new F4 Connor Leong, Dylan Wang, Darren Chen, and Caesar Wu.

Good luck, Shen Yue!
