Plans for a remake of Siapa Takut Jatuh Cinta were announced in mid-2017.[6] The series was loosely adapted from Yoko Kamio's Boys Over Flowers and the Taiwanese drama, Meteor Garden.[1] The principal actors were revealed in July 2017, including Natasha Wilona, Verrell Bramasta, Aliando Syarief, and Bryan Domani.[7] Teuku Rassya was also allegedly a part of the main cast. The drama premiered on November 13, 2017 on SCTV.[8] Syarief left the show on December 18, 2017. Reportedly, he was upset about not being the male lead.[9][10] He was replaced by Filipino actor Teejay Marquez.

In October 2017, Meteor Garden star Barbie Hsu learned about the remake and wrote a post, saying that Wilona resembled her when she was young. Hsu later commented on one of Bramasta's posts, wishing the production "all the best."[4]
