By: LazerKim Kim Hyun Joong first gained huge attention from the 2009 blockbuster drama Boys Over Flower, as he portrayed the most popular character of Yoon Ji Hoo as one of the members of F4. The F4 consist of four handsome rich high school students portrayed by Lee Min Ho as Gu Jun Pyo leader of F4, Kim Hyun Joong as Yoon Ji Hoo sunbae, Kim Bum as So Yi Jeong, and Kim Joon as Song Wo Bin. It was said that the F4 became popular because of the drama BOF. Let’s see how F4 are doing, and who among the four became the most popular after doing Boys over Flower, as we recall them back.
After the filming of Boys Over flower, it was said that the F4 gained more endorsement from different companies both from local and international products. They did a lot of commercial model job, either the four of them as a group or individual endorsement. I think that time, Kim Hyun Joong was the busiest among them after the filming, since he was scheduled for a series of concerts with SS501.Let’s start with the F4 recall.
Lee Min Ho did another drama Perfect Match in 2010 as he portrayed Jeon Jin Ho who pretended to be a gay, to be able to rent a room from a lady’s house. Then in 2011 he did City Hunter, as he received five awards for the year 2011.
Kim Hyun Joong as a singer performed in a series of concerts with SS501 right after BOF, did Playful Kiss as the lead character Baek Seung Jo in 2010. As his come back stage as a singer he debut his first mine album in June 2011 followed by his second mini album at the same year in October. He performed series of concerts in Japan and received seven awards for the year 2011.
Kim Bum portrayed the role of So Yi Jeong in Boys Over Flower. He did Haru: The unforgettable Day In korea in 2010. And currently doing a drama Padam Padam, pilot airing started Dec.5 2011.
Kim Joon portrayed the role of Song Woo Bim in Boys Over Flower. He did the drama Crime Squad in 2011 with Song Il Gook as lead star.
They are the F4, the four flower boys, all four of them are handsome, and had maintained their individual integrity two years after the filming of one of the most unforgettable drama. They were the rookies of drama back then, but had made a very successful TV series. As they separated to his individual careers after the filming of BOF, apparently Kim Hyun Joong and Lee Min Ho benefited a lot from the drama. Well probably because they were on the lead roles, but both Hyun Joong and Min Ho captured, if not dominated the audience attention.

For the year 2011, Hyun Joong and Min Ho both excel in different fields. Hyun Joong excel in his singing career while Min Ho excels in his acting career. I wouldn’t compare their abilities nor their popularity ratings because both are good in their own mastered craft.
And if I compare them, well just for the sake of argument, I think Kim Hyun Joong is in a better edge, because he’s not only handsome he has so many talents to begin with. While Lee Min Ho has his focus mainly in acting.
Among the four members of 4F, obviously it’s Kim Hyun Joong who’s the most successful among them. Seeing from Hyun Joong’s schedule after 2009 BOF, he just kept going even the time he changed agent to Key East. The only time gap in his exposure was after Playful Kiss, there may be a gap in activities, but he was seen televised at the soccer field with other celeb and that was the time he was already preparing for his come back stage as a singer and his 1st album debut.
Lee Min Ho mentioned in one of his interviews that he became close to Hyun Joong even after the filming of the drama, they still call each other from time to time. They were always together at the set and they always ate together.
I think Hyun Joong had a great time when he was doing BOF, as I watched footage from behind the scene, it was said that Hyun Joong was the ice breaker among the cast that relieves their boredom, while waiting for their take!!!
Look at the sleepyhead…camera was already rolling Hyung Joong there was asleep!!
I think Hyun Joong will never forget his experience with Boys Over Flower, it was his first lead acting experience, and his first kissing scene!!
A survey was conducted by Golden Dew, a jewelry brand, and the question goes “Whom among the male celebrities would you like to be kissed”. Kim Hyun Joong was on the first rank with 34% of votes, second was Lee Min Ho with 32% votes. It was said that this kissing scene from Boys Over Flower had a strong impact to the audience.
Way back in 2009, during the airing of Boys Over Flower, prominent personalities in the industry had already seen a potential shining star in Kim Hyun Joong. And Hyun Joong proved them right.
