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.

If It was me I would be really confused to which route I would choose. I find the plot and the characterization cleverly written but in the end it was it's own downfall. All the build up and then it abruptly ends. It's good that there's still…
