F4’s “five years later” video to be a music drama

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.

Days after a teaser video was posted online (watch below) without explanation, which has been stirring renewed interest in the romance drama Boys Before Flowers, the official announcement has come for the “five years later” story touted in the clip:

A 25-minute “music drama” (read: extended music video) will wrap up the F4 saga in omnibus format, featuring the four F4 members played by Lee Min-ho, Kim Hyun-joong, Kim Bum, and Kim Joon five years after we last left them.

This “F4 Special Edition” MV, which was filmed in secret, will be unveiled online at Mnet.com on April 28. It will also feature songs sung by each of the F4 members (the previously announced special edition OST).

Teaser clip:

To be perfectly honest, I’m kinda over it. I had my fun, thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with the drama, laughed tons and don’t regret any time spent on Boys Before Flowers. That said, I’ve moved on and all this constant dragging-out and promotional tying-in just feels unnecessary. (I know, I know, where money’s concerned, it’s never unnecessary.) I may watch it, but I don’t particularly care to see what happens — and music videos like this always feel fanfiction-y, rather than “canon,” so it doesn’t have the same narrative impact either.

Jan-di's not going to be in it, so I kinda wonder what's the point. Unless it's a 25-minute BBF commercial for Cass beer. F4, eyeliner and SYNCHRONIZED BODYROLLS?

*gasp* Oh my Placebo, that would be heaven.

I felt the same way, that is until I read there was going to be this 25 minute music video/drama. So I''l say I thought I was over it, but I'll probably look for the video when it comes out.

Looking fwd to it! :) During the 2nd half of BOF I just watched for the SoEul couple and the rare scenes featuring Kim Joon. I hope he at least gets his share of screen time in this music drama (w/e that is...I've never seen one).

I'm actually glad they're doing a 5-yr thing, but ONLY if it wraps up everything neatly....Jundi wedding (hoping a glimpse of little Jundi^^), SoEulmates wedding, JH with a nice girl and prince Song with another girl too.....everybody happy, happy so I can move on......The ending of ep. 25 was not satisfying for me AT ALL!!!!!

I've actually been avoiding the BOF thread at soompi because of too much memories (hahaha) and wouldn't have known about it if Kireta didn't break the news in aja-aja shoutbox^^.....the BOF thread has been strangely quiet....maybe because not many people know???

No Jan di, no Ga Eul?
So why don't they call it "Woo Bin, 5 years later", and make a new storyline altogether!
We already got Ga Eul - Yi Jung's spin off, why don't they make Ji Hoo's special edition too now?

what is GBN/BBF/HYD without jan-di? (but more kim joon yay xDDD) ah well, we'll just have to wait and see.
thank you for sharing the news, i've been abstaining from the soompi threads so i had no idea what was going on.

@ 13 djes - Wait, there was a SoEulmate spinoff? *totally missed that*

I've moved on too, but I'll probably watch it just for Kim Joon. Seriously love that boy.. He needed a lot more screen time than he was given. :/

i'm not gonna lie. i was kinda hoping for a 5 years later season 2 or even a movie like they did in the jdrama (even if the movie did kinda suck all the magic out of the jdrama imho). still, i'm happy to get to see the boys again since i was really happy to see the SoEul Guardian CF. i'll take what i can get...

and is it just me or is WooBin looking better and better? i didn't think much of the extraneous member of F4 (as i thought of him) but the further along the series got, the hotter he looked to me. and have you SEEN him in the Andre Kim "fashion" show pics?!? almost melted my laptop!

I have to admit I am not over it yet.

The story line has always been my favorite.

From Meteor Garden to Hana Yori. I think I watched Meteor Garden 7-8 times already with my mother... hahahaha..

Yes my mother is into it also... although Full House was her all time favorite.

I have never heard or seen a music drama before. What is that? How long is it?

One thing is for sure I wish Jandi is in that.

Yeah.. No Jandi! She was as irritating as can be in the drama. She was so needy all the time! Deviations galore in this drama. I only watched for the eye candy!

GOSH! they are ruining dramas like that.....i wonder what full house 2 will look like...if that s true....BUT i admit....i will still watch BBF...FAN SERVICE!

what are you guys talking about... aren't those high heels in the snow Jan Di's shoes???

I'm pretty sure Ga Eul is the girl in white around the 42 second mark. I mean why else would Yi Jung look so happy holding a bouquet of flowers. ^_^

Finally Woo Bin gets a girl, I want him to have a happy ending too! >.<

Does anyone know for certain that Jandi is not going to be in it? It's only the sneak preview so who knows.

pfft....you guys are crazy, i'm so not over it. I can't help it >_< I never really liked the drama that much while it was airing but when it ended I was like, wait, what?!?!??What do I do with my mondays and tuesdays now??? I just hope this music drama is good, and hopefully doesn't only consist of the f4.

they're totally milking this drama's for all it's worth. Even though Jandi was annoying, it would feel empty without her.

Based on the godawful music in that promotional clip, it is nice to know that the BBF production team has clung onto its unimaginably lousy taste in music.

So this musically-challenged team is going to bring us an...extended music video?

I am in--cringes and all--just cause I like watching train wrecks in slo-mo. I imagine that Jandi's absence will be excused through some tale of her being off in some distant land ministering to the poor and the Iraq and such as, leaving the path cleared for the F4 to do their thing.

I don't blame the K-team for milking this, although I wish they had gone the J-route and put out a fun, light movie instead. Fun, light? What's that, asks the K-team.

Just when I thought I'd be freed of bondage.

Looks like I'm going to be lurking around at viikii.net once again on Tuesday!

Dayumn, I am in serious need of a new drama to watch. Or maybe I should go live in reality.

I thought i WAS over BBF..but after reading your post and watching that video...im somewhat drawn back in...

i have to admit, i still miss BBF on mondays and tuesdays and all the excitement over it..

I guess i'l have to wait for subbers to sub this 25 minute video to watch and understand it :D

The music video better be longer than the typical music video..

I don't want them to wrap everything up in three minutes.

But then again...it might be in long parts like Buzz did theirs or those FT Island music videos.

WHERE'S JANDI!?

And Woobin better get a happy ending. He deserves better than to be totally isolated and uncommercialized all because of some crappy screenwriterss..

Why don't they just let it die already.

Hmmm again they’re here and tomorrow there not…hmmm strike while the iron is hot….nothing much new with the video its the same like Meteor Garden and Jap Hana Yori Dango they have their own special edition remember the meteor rain and hanayori movie …it is expected and surely this wont be the last considering there high profile. Let’s hope for some uniqueness or something different in their coming projects.

Yeah, they are trying to make the most of it, like you said, it was great and all (especially in the beginning, getting really absurd in the end, i'm not complaning about the ending, just how the story turns out in general) but people really need to move on

But at least the song sounds nice

I'm actually interested with the songs F4 will be singing than the music drama itself. I was surprised with Kimbum's singing when I saw a fancam during his fanmeeting. And Kim Joon's singing~! I like his singing voice as much as his rap. lol.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm totally looking forward to this music drama since I wasn't really satisfied with the ending of BBF. I would have preferred a movie to a one episode music drama to tie everything up, but I'll take what I can get at this moment.
