Flower Boy Next Door


Flower Boy Next Door - 16 episodes

Go Dok-mi is a shut in or a modern-da Rapunzel who finds herself surrounded by nosy, goodlooking flower boy neighbors. This is the third of TVN's 'Oh Boy' Flower Boy series after Flower Boy Ramyun Shop and Shut up Flower Boy Band. TVN is really milking the power of the reverse harem flower boy concept. The teasers, the title, the storyline and everything is screaming 100% reverse harem but it's actually not! This is the first time a drama really went all out with packaging itself as reverse harem. 

The characters are all very creatively-inclined. We've got an editor, game developer, webtoon artists and a chef. I like how they inject all their nuances as recurring themes all throughout the series. The poetry, the webtoons, post it notes, game board, cooking class etc..heck I even love the mall owner's fashion. But with all it's artistry I didn't find any romantic chemistry at all even with the two leading men. Zilch. What a waste of use of Park Shin Hye and flower boy concept. This is supposed to be her second RH after You're Beautiful. I also find it hard to believe that for someone so freaky frugal she has the latest smartphone all thanks to a product placement. Even Enrique pointed out that she had the latest TV but he failed to mention the phone who is so distractingly out of her character all throughout the series. And just like the Flower Boy Ramyum Shop, I also love the sub-story between the editor. Cute. I'll end this review now and file this under...related!

Everything comes in two's: we got two amensia -themed series, then we have another upcoming shut in-themed anime, Kuro to Kin no Akanai Kagi.
