First teaser of Boys Before Friends (Hana Yori Dango American Version)

I know I wasn't able to talk about this before but yeah, there will be an American live action adaptation of the most famous shoujo manga, Hana Yori Dango. The announcement was first met with a lot of backlash and negative feedback. Fans of the original manga and of the other adaptations were skeptical about the project. People are asking how the makers can successfully translate this for the American audience given the difference in culture. The production has also experienced changes from the title (previously called Between Boys & Friends) to their actors (lead actress Riley Rae Baker left the production and was replaced by Claude Racine who was then replaced by Dawn Morrow).
