Biography Edit

Gu Jun Pyo is the leader of F4 as well as the heir to the Shinhwa Group, one of the most powerful business groups in South Korea. Raised by his older sister and servants, he grew up to be arrogant and conceited person who believed that there was nothing that could not be done with money. Deep down however, he has a heart of gold that cannot be easily expressed due to the constant masking of his loneliness and his craving for familial attention with pride and conceit.

Jun Pyo's perspective changes when a transfer student to Shinhwa High named Geum Jan Di challenges his beliefs. Jan Di absolutely despises the notorious F4 and all that it stands for. One day, Jan Di and her only friend in the school are eating ice cream when her friend trips and drops her ice cream cone on Jun Pyo's shoe. He is upset that his shoe is ruined and demands that Jan Di's friend licks it off his shoe. Jan Di steps in and defends her friend by shoving her ice cream cone into Jun Pyo's face. From that day onward, Jun Pyo cannot get Jan Di out of his head since she is so unlike the other students in the school.

He realizes that money cannot buy everything from Jan Di and falls in love with her. 


Geum Jan Di Edit


The most important person in his life!

Jun Pyo's first encounter with Geum Jan Di occurs after he rejects a girl's offering and shoves cake into her face. As he walks off, he finds Jan Di in his path about to call him out on his actions, but she mutters nothing instead. Their second encounter is when Jan Di's new friend, Min-ji's, ice cream falls on his shoe. Jun Pyo tests Jan Di, who is defending her friend, by making her lick the ice cream

off his shoe. As Jan Di bends down, she instead shoves the ice cream into his face, knocks him to the ground, throws money at him for dry cleaning and plants a sticker on his forehead. The next day, Jun Pyo gives Jan Di a red card, making her a new target of school to be bullied and harassed, at his orders. After Jun Pyo spreads a nasty rumor, Jan Di fights back and kicks him in the face and warns him to stop his acts. From this point, he begins to develop strong feelings for her throughout the series. They begin dating, but go through many hardships since Madam Kang, Jun Pyo's mother, tries to break them up. When Jun Pyo forgets Jan Di due to an accident, she is heartbroken and with the F4's help, tries to restore Jun Pyo's memories. He finally remembers her at the pool party, when she falls into the pool, and he saves her life. They go through their first date in the finale and kiss before he leaves to rebuild the Shinhwa Group. At the end of the series, after four years of being abroad, Jun Pyo proposes and Jan Di accepts.

Jan Di is known as his first love and first girlfriend. He shows he cares for her very much during the series and considers her the most important person in his life. They are shown to have a relationship with a lot of breaking up, fights, and getting back together. But in the end, they were always meant to be together.

Ha Jae Kyung Edit

Jun Pyo first meets Ha Jae Kyung at a shoe store in Macau, where they fight over a pair of shoes he is trying to buy for Geum Jan Di. He sees her again at his birthday party, after his mom announces their engagement. Jun Pyo accidentally drags her off, where they fight again and he nicknames her "Monkey." Ha Jae Kyung develops feeling for Jun Pyo very quickly, which he does not return since he still loves Jan Di. At the wedding, Jae Kyung decides not to marry Jun Pyo, so he can be happy with Jan Di.
