Boys Over Flowers

Shin Hwa group owns almost half of everything in Korea. From shopping malls, to oil, to hotels, to manufacturing, their name can be see everywhere.

Shin Hwa Academy was created by the owner of Shin Hwa group, because he wanted to create a school that he fond suitable for his grandchildren to attend.

Shin Hwa Academy, is a large and beautiful school, with large rolling green hills, large and imposing buildings of study, and a student body so rich, lovely, and exclusive, even the 1% have a hard time getting in.

The school and the students have only had to deal with their own social bubble, they are unprepared for the new girl in school. 

After saving the life of a student from elite Shin Hwa Academy, Jin Di receives a scholarship to the school. This school is run by a group of boys known as the Fab4, who have everyone doing their bidding and suffering their pranks.  Jin Di may seem little and no match for this group of privileged, evil teenagers, but she is mighty and with a strong sense of justice. It is only when the leader of the Fab4 attacks her friend that she stands up to them. What could be more shocking than someone standing up to the Fab4? How about the leader, falling in love with her?

Of all the jungles in the world, there is non so dangerous, dense, and deadly as the path to High School.

The story of "Boys Over Flowers" does well to depict the High School students in their natural habitat. Cruel and soul crushing by nature, these animals are deadly on their own, but in Shin Hwa Academy, they do it with style, and with the whole school behind them. In this school, the Fab4 only has to point you out as unwanted, and the rest of the school will do their dirty work. The victim will find their friends turn on them, not even a teacher or school board member will help you. To help another would mean to be targeted for interference  and so the whole school is a mindless mob hurting and exploiting their fellow man.
