PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
ABS-CBN and JeepneyTV bring viewers the ultimate throwback on Philippine television as the Asianovela that started it all, Meteor Garden, once again hits TV screens beginning Monday (March 31).
For the very first time, the phenomenal hit Asianovela loved by many Filipinos airs on two channels. The meteor fever will surely reach fever pitch as the highly-anticipated rerun airs for one and a half hours twice every weekday to follow the the timeless story of Shan Cai (Barbie Xu) and the heartthrobs of F4, Dao Ming Si (Jerry Yan), Hua Ze Lei (Vic Zhou), Mei Zuo (Vanness Wu), and Xi Men (Ken Zhu).
This special treat marks the celebration of more than ten years of airing Asianovelas on Philippine television that started on ABS-CBN. It is not just for the 2003 Meteor Garden generation to enjoy, but also for the new generation of viewers who will surely be hooked on the relatable love story of Shan Cai and Dao Ming Si.
Relive F4’s unique hairstyles and fashion trends and bring back memories when you hear the show’s theme songs once you re-enter Ying De University ruled by the rich and popular boys of F4 or Flower Four.
A notorious group inside the campus, F4 gets rid of students they don’t like or comes in their way by giving them the Red Card. This card entitles all students to bully whoever receives it until he or she leaves the school for good.
Shan Cai, an impoverished young girl who will be forced by her parents to study at Ying De, gets a Red Card after she slaps F4 leader Dao Ming Si. Her campus life then becomes a living hell when almost everyone in school messes with her.
Despite this, Shan Cai remains strong and refuses to let F4 scare her. Her feistiness and bravery slowly earn her the respect of the group until its very own leader, Dao Ming Si, falls in love with her. How will things change for Shan Chai when the mean and arrogant Dao Ming Si softens up for her? How will she get in the way of F4’s friendship especially after Dao Ming Si learns that Hua Ze Lei also fancies her?
Don’t miss premiere of Meteor Garden this Monday (March 31) on ABS-CBN, 3:15 PM after Moon of Desire, and on JeepneyTV (SkyCable Ch 9) at 8 PM.
