How far away is Flower Boy Next Door? Less than a week away, that’s all! I’ve been in Kyushu all week and totally blind quitting dramas since my hotels all lack in-room WiFi. It was both a blessing and a curse that Cheongdamdong Alice got preempted this past weekend since I couldn’t have watched (or recapped it anyways), but the uneven episode 8 and the delay has caused my enthusiasm for this drama to wane slightly. That has allowed my excitement for FBND to ratchet up again since there are so many goodies for this drama coming my way these past few days. I can confidently say that Park Shin Hye has never looked prettier in any of her previous dramas, and both Yoon Si Yoon and Kim Ji Hoon are glowing with happiness and charm in their stills. If pre-premiere materials was a way to gauge quality, then FBND is that rare beast which looks like its got a cast that has bonded already and excited to tell the story. It’s confirmed that Kim Jung San will be playing the hottie that Park Shin Hye has a crush on, so that makes Yoon Si Yoon his cousin coming back to Korea from Spain. Kim Ji Hoon, Go Kyung Pyo, and Mizuta Kouki will be the flower boy neighbors that live next door to Park Shin Hye. We also see the first stills for second female lead Park Soo Jin, and if I didn’t see these I would seriously forget she was even in this drama. I’m totally not looking forward to returning to the real world after a fantastic vacation but having this forthcoming does take the edge off somewhat.
