Hanazakarino Kimitachihe, also known as Hana-Kimi, is a Taiwanese drama produced by and first aired on CTS and GTV . The show was later re-broadcast on Singapore’s Channel U as well as Hong Kong’s TVB network. Hua Yang Shao Nian Shao Nu is the second Taiwanese drama to be based on Hisaya Nakajo’s manga, Hana-Kimi. The drama features Wu Zun and Jiro Wang of Fahrenheit, and Ella Chen of S.H.E. The soundtrack was released on December 1, 2006.
Although the original manga’s title means “For You In Full Blossom,” the drama’s title means “The Tricks of Boys and Girls,” referring to student life within the drama. The official English name is actually an incorrect romanization of the original manga’s title. When VIZ media translated the manga from Japanese to English, “Kimitachi e” became “Kimitachihe.” Evidently, the latter name was used. The show was filmed at National Chi Nan University in Puli, Nantou County. The Chinese title is also the name used in the Chinese translation of the Hana-Kimi manga by Tong Li Publishing.
