Gifts with a story of their own
In the land of dramas, no love is quite complete without the requisite symbol of their affections. In Boys Over Flowers, the ‘Kissing Star Necklace’ was a hit with audiences for its close link to the story. Lead Gu Jun Pyo explained the significance of the “specially designed and made” present to Geum Jan Di.
This necklace later became a plot device, resulting in important plot twists that would otherwise be less effective.
Other notable gifts are the twin phoenix hairpins in The Moon Embraces The Sun and the K Pendant Necklace from Dream High.
