A poor teenage girl named Shan Cai attends Ying De University, a private school established exclusively for rich students. The university is dominated by a gang of handsome but arrogant students known as F4. Dai Ming is the F4 leader and the other members are Hua Ze Lei, Xi Men, and Mei Zuo - all of whom are heirs to the richest families in Taiwan.
Shan Cai then becomes the target of F4's Dao Ming's contempt. In the past no other students stood up to the F4, but Shan Cai does so. This in turn piques the interest of Dao Ming enough that he soon finds himself falling for Shan Cai. Meanwhile Shan Cai finds herself falling for another F4 member, the gentle Hua Ze Lei ...
- Based on Yoko Kamio's Japanese shojo manga series "Hana yori Dango".
- The original Japanese title "Hana Yori Dango" or ""Boys Over Flowers" is a pun on the Japanese old saying "Dumplings over flowers," referring to people who attend Hanami (flower festival), but instead of enjoying flowers, focus more on the materialistic side of the event such as getting food and buying souvenirs.
- Meteor Garden not only became a smash hit in Taiwan, but become one of the more popular dramas ever in Hong Kong and the Phillipines.
