F4 turns JVKV

Thanks to Kirby for the tip! Naks, may mga informants na kami 😛

Anyway, because of the Japanese drama Hana Yori Dango‘s increasing popularity, the producer behind the Taiwanese version Meteor Garden has decided to rename the group F4 (a.k.a. Jerry Yan, Vic Zhou, Ken Chu, and Vanness Wu). You know, THAT group that made many Pinays (and the rest of Asia… but don’t include me) drool and/or swoon, and boys take a salon trip to have those unflattering-for-most-Pinoys haircuts.

Okay, I’m digressing. So F4 is now JVKV – which are the initials of the members arranged according to descending birth dates.

To tell you the truth, since the Taiwanese guys were the first F4 to be known, even if HanaDan does originally come from Japan, I think the former will still be considered by many fans as the real F4. Ne?

More of the news here and here.
