Siapa Takut Jatuh Cinta, abbreviated as STJC and translated as "Who's Afraid of Falling in Love" or "Who's Afraid of Love", is a 2002 Indonesian drama. The series has been accused of plagiarizing the Taiwanese drama Meteor Garden, which is based on the Japanese manga Boys Over Flowers.
The drama starred Leony Vitria Hartanti as Oni, Indra Bruggman as Indra, and Roger Danuarta as Roger. It aired in 2002 for around or over thirty episodes. The series was popular in Indonesia, but declined after the plagiarism accusations.
