There are no absolutes in drama watching. Even if everything looks great, and perhaps even too good to be true, that doesn’t guarantee a base hit much less a home run. Sometimes I think dramas ought to be all about the running game, small incremental gains rather than risking a 3rd and 30 and needing the quarterback to connect with his runningback far afield. As much as everything about Flower Boy Next Door looks utterly perfect, there is no way my predisposition for it is going to keep me from shredding it if it sucks. That will just make me sad. But with the release of the first official trailer showing footage from the drama itself, my worries are kept at bay because its so hilarious and cute. I made a mistake when I wrote that Kim Ji Hoon plays the guy Park Shin Hye has a peeping crush on, instead he plays a character not in the manhwa but is indeed the second male lead in the drama. I’m happy the drama is actually taking the general set up from the manhwa and fleshing it out by adding new characters and hopefully lots and lots of great scenes and interactions that really amp up the story. I don’t know why Kim Ji Hoon’s character is dressed like a fashion killer above. Not that I’m complaining, he’s still hotter than legally allowed despite wearing an ensemble that is best described as unfortunate. As much as I love him, I really love the first glimpse of how much sparks are between Yoon Si Yoon and Park Shin Hye in the trailer. Guh, please let this drama have tons and tons of shippy moments!
