“The wait is over,” wrote as caption GMMTV in the more-than-one minute video of the new adaptation tentatively titled F4 Thailand.
Bright takes on the role of Thyme (Dao Ming Si’s counterpart), while Win will portray the character of Kavin. They are joined by rookie actors Dew Jirawat Sutivanisak and Nani Hirunkit Changkham who will play the roles of Ren and MJ, respectively.
The female lead (Shan Cai’s counterpart), on the other hand, will be portrayed by newbie actress Tu Tontawan.

Based on the Japanese manga Boys Over Flowers, Meteor Garden was first produced in 2001 in Taiwan which tells the story of an ordinary girl who enters her dream university where she encounters a group of rich and dashing boys dubbed as F4.
The 2001 Taiwanese series was a huge hit among Filipinos and elsewhere in Asia, making its cast members Barbie Hsu, Jerry Yan, Vic Chou, Vanness Wu and Ken Chu household names.
The Thai remake is expected to air in 2021.
