If you’re an avid fan of Meteor Garden or Hana Yori Dango, you’d have gone through a few versions of Domyouji Tsukasa – including the manga character. For those who didn’t read the comics, your first brush with the character would probably be through the Taiwanese adaptation of the comic, Meteor Garden, in which Jerry Yan took on the role of the hot-tempered heir of a conglomerate.
And then there’s the Japanese drama, Hana Yori Dango, where Arashi’s Jun Matsumoto rocked the character’s iconic curls like no one else could as Domyouji Tsukasa.
In 2009, South Korea jumped onboard with their own remake, Boys Over Flowers, with Lee Minho fronting the drama as Gu Jun Pyo. In the latest franchise, it’s Chinese actor Dylan Wang turn to shine in the Meteor Garden remake as Daoming Si. We take a look at all the different Daoming Si/Domyouji Tsukasa/Gu Jun Pyo and compared the characters.
Boys Over Flowers and the 2018 remake of Meteor Garden are available on Netflix.
