It might appear that my fevered frenzy over the upcoming cable drama Flower Boy Next Door has died down, but that is merely because I am biding to time and conserving my energy. Otherwise I’ll wear myself out before the drama even arrives. This is like running for a marathon and pacing myself. The cast of FBND were guests on the variety talk show Strong Heart this week for a Christmas themed episode that was so much fun to watch. Sadly it’s not subbed (yet) but still entertaining nonetheless to watch the actors interacting and learning more about them. Park Shin Hye, looking ever more beautiful, revealed that she’s a great sportswoman (runs in the family) and has picked up quite a proficiency in a variety of sports. No wonder she’s such a kick ass dancer in real life, I knew she got great coordination. Yoon Si Yoon revealed that he’s a giant bookworm who learns everything first by reading it in a book, though that does cause problems when he has no practical understanding of how it is applied. He also revealed an adorable anecdote about him trying to learn Chinese and he attempted to hand his laundry to the cleaning lady at the hotel himself in Chinese and two weeks later still hadn’t gotten it back. Turns out he asked her to “kill it” instead of “wash it” so she threw it away. LOL forever! I am trying to temper my expectations of this drama because even if its just okay I would love a cheery cute rom-com to spend time with and not be disappointed it’s not up to snuff. Check out the cute SH episode below, and be prepared to avert your eyes when the hotness that is Kim Ji Hoon shows up wearing what can best be described as a suit made out of a tree and cut like his grandpa’s outfit to go to church.
