This drama doesn’t look my thing based on the makjang synopsis but I do love the official posters to pieces! So eye-catching, almost like a portrait. A new MBC weekend drama is headed our way and it looks like a sure fire ratings winner since it has all the family angst, betrayal, and potential forgiveness ripe to conquer the weekend time slot. Flower of the Queen (also known as Equator’s Flower) headlines Kim Sung Ryung (Kim Tan’s mom in Heirs) as an ambitious chef who abandoned her daughter years ago to marry her rich husband played by Lee Jong Hyuk. Years later said daughter played by Lee Sung Kyung is all grown up and out for payback for the abandonment and gets involved with Lee Jong Hyuk’s younger brother played by Yoon Park. The story actually has shades of Flames of Desire, right?
The drama takes over the time slot from the highly rated MBC weekend drama The Legendary Witch and is slated to run for 50-episodes. It’s nice that MBC is focusing so many weekend dramas on female lead characters even if said characters start off misbehaving or having done really crappy things.
