Compared to Dok Mi and Enrique, Jin Rak isn’t as well-developed a character, but he does act as the main foil to Enrique. While Enrique’s hallucination speaks to his desire to be with Dok Mi, I also find it symbolic that Enrique sees her, even when she’s not physically there. and… I’ll be back! The show is considered a pioneer in Korean melodramatic series and helped launch the … While many viewers took to hyper, motor-mouthed, energizer-bunny Enrique right away, I have to admit that I was slow to embrace him as a character. Apr 03, 2017. As the episodes wore on and she kept surfacing, I had less and less patience with this plot device. Dear kfangurl: What are some good dramas that aren’t romances? A huge shame, I thought. Hahaha… Why… I’m suddenly reminded of “That Theme” you coined in IHYV.

February (8) January (10) 2012 (105) December (8) Let me explain. They fit all the cilches (she’s fiery and passionate, he’s cold and with-drawn). Have been listening to it in a loop for month’s now. The Flower Boys part was fun when they reunite. Pressed by Enrique to go first, Dok Mi says, “I’m sorry that I pushed your feelings away until now. It makes it that much harder for me to get on board with them. Great review! I think I’ll call this the Enrique Effect. He’s helping her to complete her circle first and to learn to accept love that she may know how to give it herself. Aw. I love you.” Double aw. Then there was this in his autobiography; “When rejected by the person you love most, when betrayed by the person closest to you – that’s when self-abasement begins. That was definitely refreshing. *sigh*, Aw. In a way, perhaps Enrique felt like helping Dok Mi was, in a way, helping himself? A pretty low-key, small story set in a cute, quirky manhwa-esque world. In episode 14, when Dok Mi finally speaks with Do Hwi about their past, she struggles. Aw. Things that are ardent grow together in likeness – that woman now understands this a little.”. In episode 16, Jin Rak talks about the new love story that he’s working on, which is clearly built on Dong Hoon’s and Editor’s relationship. I actually rather like your take on Dok Mi's and Enrique's growth, in terms of their not literally becoming each other's world, but a symbolic start to both of them opening up to the world. Thank you for becoming my world. The Girl Who Sees Smells (2015) Image courtesy of SBS Enrique shows Dok Mi the definition of “dating” in a dictionary, which reads, “A close friendship between two people who are in love.”. Do you know love? I think I see why they went that route — they broke a ton of rom-com rules but used the fake-outs to try and either hide that they were breaking them or maybe do a wink-wink nudge-nudge towards them. Well, reluctant from where Jin Rak’s standing, anyway. By allowing someone the power of being their worlds — I saw that as both of them actually opening up to the world, one person at at time. Without your insight, I'd felt like the writers had switched out the actual world, and replaced it with Enrique (for Dok Mi) and Dok Mi (for Enrique), and that had felt like SUCH a cop out. Enrique’s hurt response to Dok Mi’s words is telling: “I don’t care about the key words made up by people who don’t know me. And that alone is enough for me. There is so much stuff to meta about but unfortunately I don’t have what it takes. Train Korean Drama Review Posted on September 8, 2020 by Kay Train is a sci-fi crime thriller about a detective (Yoon Shi Yoon) whose loved one (Kyung Soo Jin) is murdered by a serial killer, but he discovers an abandoned train station is connected to a parallel world where she is still alive and works to protect her. While most of the characters are likable and amusing, the writers only really flesh out a few main characters. Heh. Flower Boy Next Door Korean Drama Review Posted on July 25, 2016 by Kay Flower Boy Next Door tells the story of a girl named Go Dok Mi (Park Shine Hye) who suffers from … It’s partly the fact that she’s working on Enrique’s autobiography, but it’s mostly because of her interactions with him where she’s seen through the cracks in his facade. Pingback: Queen Of The Ring – ngockhanh's, Pingback: Flash Review: Queen Of The Ring [Three Colors Of Fantasies: Gold] | The Fangirl Verdict. Click here to understand the heart behind #FindMyTribe! 2 fakeouts in a single episode. I wanted to see Dok Mi’s continued journey of growth, particularly in Enrique’s absence, so that I could disconnect her growth from him. With Dok Mi’s trajectory taking centerstage, it is her relationships with Enrique and Jin Rak that are ushered to the forefront and that get to feature some thoughtful writing. Then, he gets all teary-eyed as Dok Mi tells him to stop with the post-it notes, and he anticipates her good-bye with a mix of fear and defeat written on his face. Dok Mi puts up her defenses and stoically hides behind them, while Enrique proactively barrels through those defenses, one by one, to get to the kindred spirit that he sees in her. In the end, it felt like a show that had some lovely potential, and that potential got tragically short-circuited by haphazard writing and uneven characterization. Very apt!! Main diet of kdramas with movies and kpop on the side. I’m sorta paraying the minor bumps I’m seeing now don’t turn into bigger roadblocks as I’d hate it to happen to something otherwise this excellent. In episode 11, Dok Mi does a lot of reaching out. XD, I liked the show but didn’t love it……It started pretty good but later lost steam somewhere and I had to force myself to complete it , I feel ya, snow_white. Some love it, and some hate it, and some are conflicted about it. XD Very interesting take on the colors, Nelly – it DOES sort of give it a 70s flavor, which hadn't occurred to me. I found it rather cheesy at first, but this little thing between them where Enrique answers Dok Mi’s thoughts really grew on me, and by the later episodes, I genuinely found it rather cute and sweet. Thanks, Lora.. I’m glad you enjoyed the review! I’m reminded coz the book also talks of becoming full circle. By the end of the show, I honestly couldn’t care two snips about what became of her, coz really, it’s hard to care about a cartoon parody. Enrique also had to learn to slow down and really listen to Dok-mi (he got it wrong in the beginning — trying to push her into rekindling her friendship with Do-hwi) and then he had to make a decision to commit to her. That really got me in a big way , Park Shin Hye’s really grown on me with each drama, and I thought she did really well in FBND. It first surfaces in episode 2, when Enrique is talking to Dok Mi about their earlier misunderstanding, and Dok Mi thinks to herself, “I miss my room.”, Enrique seems to hear her thoughts, coz he says, “Stop thinking about wanting to go back to your place.”. Because of you, I came to love myself.”. Answer honestly. I did not know much what to expect from this drama. Flower Boy Next Door (2013) Based on the webtoon I Watch Him Every Day, this drama is a webtoon within a webtoon . Any person with a shred of decency would at least be a little conflicted about unleashing such malice on someone that they used to be so close to. You hide in a space that’s all your own, and close your heart. I have to concede that I liked the entry Dok Mi wrote in That Woman’s World: “Knock on a closed door. One of my favorite moments between Jin Rak and Enrique is in episode 5, when Jin Rak, finally driven to action by a huge stockpile of accumulated frustrated jealousy, confronts Enrique and introduces himself. Reviews; Recommendations; Recommended For You; Add New Title; Movies. I loved this show for its well-developed characters who actually had layers like onions (casual Shrek reference anyone?) I guess the upside of being late to the party is I know which ones have a reputation for awesome? Dok Mi’s journey, from being closeted in the safe confines of her apartment, to wrestling with and overcoming her fears in order to step outside into the world, is no simple thing. As the Swedish proverb says, shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow. ), so that ought to come after Chuno. I love that these 2 are so tuned in to the subtext of what the other says. In my view, the more manhwa-esque – and therefore unreal – the design tends to lean, the trickier it is to create emotional resonance that rings true, from the characters to the audience. I wanted him to be the catalyst and companion that he’d originally promised to be, as she stepped out into the world, rather than become the world itself. I love absolutely everything about it and have nothing negative to say. It might have been better if they did not kiss at all. Dramamu – Exo Next Door (2015) Banyak serial sub indo yang bisa muncul di bioskop terkenal dan masuk ke dalam serial Terbaik tahun dan menjadi serial yang bisa menyedot animo masyarakat untuk menonton serial ini, sehingga bisa membuat serial ini menjadi serial terlaris dan bisa membuat Anda selalu ingin menonton serial ini secara terus menerus. Their lips barely touched, and they just froze there for the camera. They see through each other’s protective shells so clearly that they know where it hurts the most. You hide in a space that’s all your own, and close your heart. But then again the hugs were stiff as well. Drat. I figured out its better not to expect anything. I’ve heard that YSY kissed his leading lady very well in Me Too, Flower, so it’s not a case of a problem with him. 8.3/10 from 6 users. She doesn’t want to talk, but he talks to her anyway. Obviously the stars of this show were the two boys. Not only did this insertion of noble idiocy feel jerky, pacing-wise, I felt like it also compromised the thematic throughline of the entire show. In a later episode, late one night, Jin Rak is literally beside himself with anxiety, knowing that Enrique is in Dok Mi’s apartment, and resorts to all manner of crazy antics to try to keep tabs on what’s happening on the other side of the wall: His efforts are fruitless, but give us several truly hysterical moments, thanks to Kim Ji Hoon’s gung-ho, all-in delivery. Directed by Rob Cohen. I'm guessing Chuno, coz I'm planning to resume my rewatch, which got shelved for a couple of weeks. No wonder he never gets anywhere with his crush, living in fantasyland and all. Generally, the world that the show presents us with has a comic, manhwa kind of feel. I mean, you are BFFs with Dok Mi for the longest time, and super-close and everything. SO much wasted potential. Here, it's like we get the 2 types of OTP-pairings gone cross-wired, and that's part of the reason I didn't see them as the usual OTP. Amid the occasional cracks in his overly bright facade, we get fleeting glimpses of his inner sadness and loneliness. After Jin Rak’s (rather weak) confession is foiled, we see that the post-it pictures do move when flipped, and they tell a story in stop-motion, about a guy who falls for a girl at first sight and ends up proposing on his knee with flowers. I’ve made some changes to the Tier benefits on Patreon, I hope you guys like the updates!! Click here to see all your streaming options! I love hilarious misunderstandings- I love them a lot, Those feels when you think that your ex and your crush are dating, Pepero- bringing people together since 1983, I really wanted this drama to keep on going. Aw. Flower Boys Next Door is easily my favorite role of Park Shin Hye’s, among the shows that I’ve seen her in. Hm.. Although the color palette doesn’t lean as technicolor as I expected it to, thanks to these design touches, everything in this world does tend to pop somewhat. She looks past Enrique’s bright facade and sees the loneliness beneath that everyone else misses. Their lips didn’t even look like they were touching!! In episode 10, when Dok Mi comes face to face with the Literature teacher again, thanks to Do Hwi’s conniving scheming, and everyone else pretends like everything is as fine as can be. Flower Boy Next Door was a welcome breath of fresh air that was buoyed by adorable chemistry and had great characters, whether the motor-mouthed Enrique or the decent and steadfast Jin-rak. And after she does, he has this little flash of pride flitter over his face, which is so gratifying to witness. (Like how the second-lead might suddenly turn up with a girlfriend at drama’s end in a standard story. He knows Dok Mi needs to talk, and he knows that she can do it. ^^ It should be up next, yes. When you have a collection of characters this quirky, you don’t need high drama to make your story interesting—every little interaction is peppered with laughs, surprises, and depth. He then takes a shocked Dok Mi to the hospital to see Enrique. Because I really, really can stick things into a story that aren’t there (years of b-scifi training, I suspect ;)). One day, four young men move into the house right next door to Yeon-hee's home, and to her surprise, they turn out to be Chanyeol (Park Chanyeol), D.O. Somehow, your comment got buried in my spam folder, which I’d neglected to check while prepping for my work trip! In spring, summer and fall…  You keep your windows open…  And I can smell the scent wafting out from your home.” … “I can smell the scent of the herbs… The scent of your rice cooking in the evenings… And I can even see your curtains billowing in the breeze. The love line does feel tacked on, though it’s so cute that I forgive the writers. This little scene in episode 3, where Enrique plays a soccer game alone in a PC-bang, is one such moment. Maybe we *should* have sent you over to the writers with those with energy drinks – they certainly seemed to need it! Enrique seems to genuinely want to be his friend. This MV includes Jin Rak in the mix, and is moderately spoilery, so be warned. Heh. Love is something that people do, so you can be rejected or make mistakes… but I put love in too high a place, and just looked up at it. Each episode of the drama was released on streaming sites and Dingo's official Youtube channel last year. That’s it! And Editor + Dong Hoon are the most adorbs thing I’ve seen in a long long time. At the same time, we see that when she is alone with her thoughts, she is extremely eloquent on her own. Would I have liked it more if it’d been clearer? The physical comedy, combined with Kim Ji Hoon’s shifty-eyed, confused  facial expressions, made me laugh out loud. Second, I think it also had a lot to do with the casting. Episode 10. I thought Enrique was bipolar. What does a guy who’s done nothing but stare out his window know about love? …and I have more thoughts but am about to have guests knocking on the door so just wanted to say — epic review as always! The intercom. I’m guessing the writers (or SOMEBODY) thought the “you’re my world” thing was romantic.. And maybe, just maybe, I might’ve bought it when I was an impressionable teen, but now.. NO. I can buy that Dok Mi would be stiff because that jives with her character, but it makes sense that Enrique would express more tenderness. And then, just because some random girls pay you some attention, you drop your BFF and start taunting her with disdain? Enrique’s departure and all that was presented as the rom-com Separation Trope, and that weakened the sense of Dok Mi’s growth that we could’ve enjoyed, if Show would’ve allowed the spotlight to linger on that. Out into the world.” And he practically bursts with joy. Wonderful! What a waste, really. I can see why Enrique might appear rather bipolar.. With Yoon Jung Il, Hee-Ryung Jang, Jang Ki-Yong, Byung-Joon Lee. Today I try to come up with dramas that are worth watching, and that aren’t romances. ❤. I can even overlook some of the weird comic shifts in tone, which were sometimes seriously distracting. Still, she can’t help but admire a doctor who lives across the street from her. Um. Like, the Noble Idiocy was actually a fake-out, but it was made into such a cliff-hanger it really did feel like it was going to happen.) I really liked this show, but I think you do a good job of pointing out its flaws. | The Fangirl Verdict. And that last bit, where we get Enrique and Dok Mi talking about the other person becoming their worlds.. that just went against everything that I felt the show had been building on prior.. that they are each their own person, and are helping to heal and strengthen each other to go into the world. As Jin Rak reasons with Enrique, their very different perspectives on love come tumbling out. I think out of the Flower Boy shows so far, my favorite is still Shut Up <3. Enrique’s sentences go, “I’m sorry that I couldn’t come earlier. I call fakeout. Seriously. Hayy…. Not BECOME each other’s worlds. It’s like the writers painted her in broad strokes and then forgot to fill in the finer details. Almost literally. Like you, I’d tamped down my expectations for this drama.. I’d heard so many disappointed sighs over this drama compared to squees of happy that I approached it with a cautious sort of mindset. I’m super into web-series right now. Because it should be easy to see if that’s what they were doing. Does it continue like this through the whole thing? I kept watching, because there were a lot of things about this show that intrigued me, but it never actually reached the point of GOOD. The doorbell rings, and Dok Mi just. These 2 are adorable, seriously. Maybe that’s why it feels like SUCH a waste when everything went awry. It could’ve been a much better show, with some tweaks, imo. Read critic reviews. Read critic reviews. I argued it to myself using the same logic you did, yet it never came out in the actors’ eyes. There are some characters that I expected to be fleshed out a little more, and which weren’t. Jan 11, 2020 - Who isn't Korean drama fan after watching them once ? In episode 5, we get a couple of scenes that represent pretty succinctly Jin Rak’s misguided adoration of Dok Mi. And this is cable, too! Right at the end, though, in episode 16, Dok Mi’s still referring to herself in the third person. Speaking of invading privacy! I’m so glad I caught this! “Flower Boy Next Door” I loved the simplicity of this drama, and it has your staple flower boy actor: Yoon Shi Yoon . And I’m okay with that, because their story was awesome. I actually liked that we just got fleeting glimpses of Enrique’s cousin and best friend and their romance. <3. KDrama Review: Flower Boy Next Door The Gist: After a traumatic incident in high school, Go Dok Mi (Park Shin Hye) becomes afraid of people and shuts herself in her apartment. On Heartless City, I feel ya, Timescout! I’m all for music to accent certain moments, but I’m finding the over use of it in this drama intrusive and distracting. Like you said, I do think the writers had some pretty refreshing ideas in this show, but the execution really could've been better. The Boy Next Door Episode 2. Yup, got the CD too. I think my biggest problem with the show was Do Hwi and her non character. It’s interesting that I’m hearing mostly good things about Nine, and at the same time, there are people who share your experience, of liking it but not getting sucked in. It’s kinda like the boy who kept crying wolf. One of my favorite scenes around how well Enrique knows Dok Mi, is when he encourages her to talk honestly with Do Hwi about their past in episode 12. In episode 7, when Dok Mi steps outside to save Jin Rak from the suspicious looking men who want to arrest him, she says: “Excuse me… Does Oh Jin Rak know that he’s being indicted? You gotta see this. And so it is, that Dok Mi ends up staying on in the apartment and helping Enrique, despite it being completely out of her comfort zone. We cannot give what we cannot have – I SO AGREE WITH THIS, kaiaraia!!! I didn’t think much of her turn as the bumbling, clueless nun wannabe in You’re Beautiful (although I eventually came to accept the character as part and parcel of that campy, kooky, very fun world), and then I liked her a little better in Heartstrings / You’ve Fallen For Me. I would’ve been so peeved if she’d succeeded, I tell ya! What was his truth? 2. Flower Boy Next Door is one of my all time favorite dramas! And then one day… go knock on her door, and go out to the world together. I’m just going to come right out and say it: I have issues with the writing in this show. They frequently keep meeting up and always feel awkward. And that’s part of the reason I love you! Train Korean Drama Review Posted on September 8, 2020 by Kay Train is a sci-fi crime thriller about a detective (Yoon Shi Yoon) whose loved one (Kyung Soo Jin) is murdered by a serial killer, but he discovers an abandoned train station is connected to a parallel world where she is still alive and works to protect her. The title of Dok Mi’s photo album in her phone after Enrique tells her to capture the world is “Her world.” Dok Mi discloses, “The first thing I saw of the world to capture was you. But as you also mentioned, the web ton editor was the funniest of them all to watch. He refuses to tiptoe around her nor handle her gingerly or delicately as if she’s a fragile item. I really think more care could have been put into the plotting of Do Hwi’s character. A show that I like, but wish I could love. 8.5/10 from 7 users. I’m so glad you enjoyed the review! What I enjoyed much are the realizations and development of the leads. Editor + Dong Hoon = SO MUCH ADORBS! I love how you’re indulging me in my rant, kaiaraia Thanks. I guess it doesn’t quite count as losing your love if you were really only in love with an idea? Writer-nim, are you listening?? As much as Enrique sees and knows Dok Mi, she too, sees and knows him right back. I found that a little strange. You’re definitely a more accepting viewer than I am.. As much as I liked the writing around most of Dok Mi and Enrique’s arc, I couldn’t overlook the flaws in the rest of the writing. Meanwhile, Oh… Watch Trailer I’m almost afraid to watch each new episode for fear it’s suddenly gone to the dogs, LOL! She is the typical paper cut-out of the simpering Bitchy Ex-Friend, a character that Park Soo Jin strikes me as having played too many times. Will you help me, so that he can leave?” Classic nobly idiotic words. Haven’t the writers heard that too much of a good thing is, well, not a good thing? But I saw it as more of a character piece, and that made the whole thing work for me. As much as I wanted to, I just couldn’t. Do Hwi’s entire thought process for how she turned on Dok Mi in high school rang completely false to me. (I’m leaning towards too many fake-outs, myself. Its basically on the line that what we do not have, we can not give. Argh, the fakeout. Really. Except it’s a fakeout, and the show comes back to the scene later, and changes up a few details to neutralize the couple-tone. Such a nice touch. Not necessarily in finding the completion in the other person, but even in the process of loving, to find personal growth, and to mature and blossom towards a completion of oneself. So I think I got what they were trying to do, but I think they may have tripped up a bit in the doing. Park Shin Hye’s character was definitely a quiet, restrained, understated one, so I can see why you might find her dull. It did introduce me to Kim Ji Hoon, though, for which I am eternally grateful! I didn’t like that bit so much. When noble idiocy reared its ugly head in episode 14, I sighed and rolled my eyes. This is just the thing to watch on a lazy weekend afternoon when you’re in need of a bit of a lighthearted laugh. Because I really did love it, but enough people didn’t that I feel like there must be some things they should have done a bit differently. They both knew how to survive by themselves and Dok Mi’s way of coping was to actually walk away from anyone who got too close and would therefore demand too much (and have too much power to hurt her). I agree. And it’s cable, so it’s not a question of network guidelines. Oh, this reminds me. And I think the reason that he went to such lengths to help Dok Mi, even before falling in love with her, is because he saw in her a similar kind of self-abasement, except that she dealt with her self-abasement differently. I can see you're REALLY looking forward to the Chuno review! But when she finally speaks, it is with steely confidence. My contribution is mostly just “OMG! I really like the amount of care the writers took with this, allowing us to explore the workings of her mind and the various corners of her heart as she grapples with her own conflicting thoughts and desires about how she wants to experience the world: vicariously, from the inside of her cave with binoculars in metaphorical and literal hand, or by personally stepping outside with her own two feet. I liked the manhwa-esque design of our world, but as with most things, there is a flip side to this coin. Regret and reconciliation. Many people hated on Operation Proposal because they went in expecting a rom-com and it was way slower than a rom-com should be. I never knew that Kim Ji Hoon could do physical comedy so well, seriously. I agree about this being a friend-zoned drama. I thought it rather poignant that Jin Rak’s sketch figures made more progress in love than Jin Rak himself. Ha. If they’d just treated those things differently, we could’ve had a MUCH more satisfying ending without sacrificing any of the romance. I also love the OST, it was on repeat for weeks. Dok Mi says to Jin Rak, “I can’t be happy watching [Enrique] like that by my side. Announcement: Update to Patreon Tier benefits! ;D, Click to read more! That is so sweet. I love how you're able to paint a lot of context in your mind without the show overtly directing you there. Instead of focusing on the emotional core which is the best part of our story, we instead were inundated with interferences from this external, irrational source. He is pretty much the epitome of flower boys. I love too, that despite his plan to return to Spain, Enrique makes a game for Dok Mi, to bring her out into the world, just like he promised he would. For me it was a fangirl victory moment because whenever noble idiocy happens I always want the couple to just, you know, TALK like anyone in a relationship should and suddenly the need for noble idiocy disappears.
