ProductionYoko Kamio was commissioned to write a new eighty-page Boys Over Flowers story for Margaret. She picked Rui to be the main character, because he was the one she most wanted to do a story on. Kamio was also working on Cat Street at the time, delaying the story's outline by six months. The story took another five months to write.
The chapter was titled "俺の話をしようか" and the first half was published in Margaret No.3-4 on January 4, 2008. It was included in the thirty-seventh volume of Boys Over Flowers. Viz Media published the story as "Shall I Talk About Myself?" in Boys Over Flowers: Jewelry Box.
