Japanese Author of "Boys over Flowers" Visits Korea

2008/12/31 Source

Author of Japanese comic "Boys over Flowers", now made into a new KBS drama, has visited the set to offer her encouragement to the cast and staff. Yoko Kamio made an unofficial visit to Korea to show her support for this drama based on her work about a perky girl's high school adventures and romance with four hottest guys on campus.

"Boys over Flowers" were published in 17 countries, including Korea, Taiwan, the United States, and even France. The romantic comedy comic recorded the most number of copies sold in Japan. Kamio has refused to hold a press conference, insisting that the visit was purely personal. Instead, she visited the cast and gave the leading actors and actress an autographed sketch of "Boys over Flowers". She was reportedly amazed by how similar the cast looked like her characters.

The first episode of "Boys over Flowers" will be aired on January 5th on KBS2.
