Plagiarism accusations

The show has been accused of plagiarizing the show, Meteor Garden. Fans reportedly began to notice the similarities around the third episode, causing the the show's producers to revise the following episodes. Prima Entertainment has publicly announced that the show is a work of their own, though fans and the media protest. If the show is plagiarized, this violates copyrights, because Prima Entertainment never obtained the rights to make a exact match of Meteor Garden.[7][8][9]

Other Indonesian series

Several other Indonesian television series have been accused of plagiarizing or thought to be based on Boys Over Flowers. Whether they are or not remains unconfirmed. The following television series have been listed as adaptations of Meteor Garden (2001), Hana Yori Dango (2005), or Boys Over Flowers (2009).
