Oh Mah Gawd. If a mere script reading picture of the leads of Flower Boy Next Door can turn me into a gibbering idiot, I cannot imagine what will happen if I see official stills of Park Shin Hye, Yoon Si Yoon, and Kim Ji Hoon from the drama. When the trailers come out I’ll probably be reduced to rolling on the floor like a himono onna. Forget about watching the actual drama, I’m sure watching me watch the drama will be a new form of entertainment as is. Any attempt to recap it will involve something like “OMGOMGOMG, she’s so cute, OMGOMGOMG, marry me Ji Hoon!, OMGOMGOMG whisper more sweet nothings, Si Yoon!” Well, you get the drift. I have to admit that mean ole LizzyD (I love you, dongsaeng, but that was a cruel thing to do to your unni) does have a point when she insisted on sending me photographic proof that Yoon Si Yoon’s face appears have to changed, again, this time from his Me Too, Flower! days. She’s right, but that doesn’t take away from him looking even cuter, not to mention with the acting he did in M2F under his belt, my boy is ready to woo me all over again here. I love how scruffy and slightly surly Kim Ji Hoon looks during the script reading, which apparently is how his character is described in the webtoon this drama is based on. LOL, already in character, Ji Hoon? I didn’t know you were a method actor. Rounding out the cast is Park Soo Jin (so bleh, she’s about as interesting as wet toast but works well as the second lead bitch we can all easily hate like she was in My Girlfriend was a Gumiho), Kim Yoon Hye (formerly known as Woori, and she’s alright), and Go Kyung Pyo (talented and charming in Operation Proprosal). The drama premieres on January 7th on tvN (totally marked it on my calender already, kekeke).
I think the last drama where I loved all three leads equally was Mary Stayed Out Last Night with Moon Geun Young, Jang Geun Seok, and Kim Jae Wook. I’m not gonna jinx Flower Neighbor, though I did end up loving M3 because of the three actors and their great chemistry even if the story was written by a mentally slow bunny. I think I will be shipping Shin Hye equally with both guys just like I did in M3, and my final choice will be tipped likely by the story and which guy she loves more.
