Should this page exist at all, or should it be redirected?Edit

Following the requested move, this disambiguation page was created. I am beginning to think that it is redundant to Boys Over Flowers (disambiguation) and should hence be redirected there instead. - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 06:56, 2 September 2021 (UTC) Pinging all the involved editors:@Netoholic, Ortizesp, 162 etc., and No such user:. - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 06:57, 2 September 2021 (UTC)

After the move, I routinely created this dab page and unlinked Boys Over Flowers (disambiguation) from the hatnote, without even looking at it. Now that I looked, it obviously violates WP:DPAGE: A disambiguation page [...] lists and links to encyclopedia articles covering topics that could have had the same title, as well as WP:MOSDAB. There's no way any "Meteor Garden" article could be titled "Boys Over Flowers" or a variation thereof. For a kosher setup, Boys Over Flowers (disambiguation) should be reformatted so that Meteor Garden article(s) are linked from its "See also" section. No such user (talk) 07:14, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
@No such user: I have just cleaned up Boys Over Flowers (disambiguation) but the question remains on whether this page should exist, I can see it both ways, on the other hand, the Meteor Garden articles may not need to be linked in the see also section of Boys Over Flowers (disambiguation) either as it is mentioned at Boys_Over_Flowers#Live_action_television_and_films so redirecting Meteor Garden to point there could also be an option. - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 07:52, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
As you said, it can be seen both ways. On one hand, Boys Over Flowers is the main franchise article, so sending readers to that section is tempting. On the other hand, redirects to sections are unwieldy, and landing to a large table with a lot of data and links may come as a confusing surprise. For that reason only, I'm inclined to leave this dab around, as it's much simpler and self-explanatory. No such user (talk) 08:36, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
