'Smap x Smap' Featuring F4 Airs in Japan

The Fuji TV show "Smap x Smap" featuring the "F4 boys" from the KBS TV drama "Boys Over Flowers" -- Lee Min-ho, Kim Hyun-joong, Kim Beom and Kim Jun -- aired on July 13, recording viewer ratings of 15.9 percent. The four actors visited Japan in April to record the show.

The show went on the air for the first time in three months after it was suspended because one of its members, Tsuyoshi Kusanaki, appeared naked on the show.

On the show, the F4 members appeared in the segment where
Katori Shinko acts as a psychic and provides counseling on various problems. The F4 members introduced themselves and entertained viewers with amusing facial expressions.

On Lee Min-ho's question whether or not "Boys Over Flowers" stands a good chance of succeeding in Japan, Tsuyoshi Kusanaki said the drama would be a huge hit.
