As announced, Mnet has (finally!) released the last two parts of the four-part F4 “After Story” music drama, featuring Ji-hoo’s (Kim Hyun-joong) and Jun-pyo’s (Lee Min-ho) segments.

Although the songs were pretty nice to listen to, the first two parts with Kim Bum and Kim Joon were rather disappointing, imo. Like those parts, the last two also featured mostly old footage cobbled together into a new video. I thought Ji-hoo’s was pretty lame (there have been better fanvideos), but at least Jun-pyo’s had a little bit of new footage.

SONG OF THE DAY

Lee Min-ho – “My Everything.” His pronunciation could be better (everyTING? ah, well, just pretend he’s going for a rasta accent) but I love how husky his voice is. I had no hopes for his singing voice (after his CF/digital single for Cass beer was so annoyingly overproduced with barely audible vocals), so this is a nice surprise. [ Download ]

Just as Episodes 1 and 2 featured songs sung by the actors (Kim Bum’s “I’m Going to Meet You Now” (지금 만나러 갑니다) and Kim Joon’s “To Make Empty” (비워내기)), these segments feature songs sung by Kim Hyun-joong and Lee Min-ho.

Ji-hoo’s theme is “Sometime” by SS501, while Jun-pyo’s is “My Everything.”

 
Episode 3 (Ji-hoo): “Sometime”

 
Kind of meh, isn’t it?

Thankfully, Jun-pyo’s video is much more satisfying than Ji-hoo’s, if only because it actually has a narrative and gives an air of closure:

Episode 4 (Jun-pyo): “My Everything”

 
I enjoyed Boys Before Flowers as much as anyone — hey, I have more than 100,000 words written exclusively on this series to prove it! — but I put this drama behind me a while ago, and I’ll be relieved when it finally puts itself to rest. I’m much more eager to see what these lovely boys do next, rather than seeing them forced to milk their popularity from this one thing.
