Meteor Garden is a classic Taiwanese drama produced by Hunan TV and aired from 2001 to 2002. The drama is based on the Japanese manga series, "Boys Over Flowers," by Yoko Kamio. The show stars four F4 members, including Jerry Yan, Vic Chou, Ken Chu, and Vanness Wu, as well as Barbie Hsu, who plays the female lead.

The story of Meteor Garden revolves around a poor, hardworking girl named Shan Cai, who attends an exclusive school for the wealthy and elite. The school is dominated by an all-male group known as F4, the most popular and powerful boys in school. They are known for their good looks, wealth, and power, and they control almost every aspect of school life.

Shan Cai is initially repulsed by F4 and their bullying ways, but things change when she crosses paths with the handsome and enigmatic Dao Ming Si, the leader of F4. Despite his tough exterior, Shan Cai sees a vulnerable side to Dao Ming Si, and the two form an unlikely bond.

As the story progresses, Shan Cai becomes embroiled in a complicated love triangle between Dao Ming Si, his best friend Hua Ze Lei, and the rich and spoiled heiress Teng Tang Jing. With each passing episode, the tensions between the characters escalate, until it seems like their relationships may never be resolved.

Meteor Garden is a classic example of a "rich boy, poor girl" love story, and it delivers all the elements fans of the genre expect. The show is set against the backdrop of a glamorous private school, and it showcases the lavish, glamorous lifestyles of the school's wealthiest students. The characters are complex, multi-dimensional, and nuanced, and fans of the show will find themselves invested in the triumphs and travails of Shan Cai and her friends.

One of the main highlights of Meteor Garden is its cast. Jerry Yan, who plays Dao Ming Si, is a standout in the series, bringing both charisma and vulnerability to his character. Vic Chou, who plays Hua Ze Lei, similarly delivers a nuanced and complex performance, and his subtle, understated acting style stands out against the more flamboyant performances of his co-stars.

Meanwhile, Barbie Hsu is the glue that holds the series together. As Shan Cai, she is tough, smart, and resourceful, and she injects the show with a much-needed dose of sincerity and heart. She also showcases impressive range, transitioning seamlessly between comedy and drama, and making the audience feel both her highs and her lows.

Meteor Garden's production values are also top-notch. The show is beautifully shot, and the locations range from sprawling mansions to crowded markets, adding to the palpable sense of atmosphere and place. The show's music is equally impressive, with catchy pop songs that are now synonymous with the series.

Overall, Meteor Garden is a classic Taiwanese drama that remains popular with audiences to this day. Its iconic characters, compelling storylines, and lavish production values make it a must-watch for fans of the genre, and it continues to be a beloved favorite among Asian drama fans worldwide.
