Flower of Evil was unique from the very beginning. As it progressed on, things are less from the original drama perspective. The acting, the character development and the feel kept me wanting to watch this drama episode after episode. When I come to think of it, Why only in episode 5 or 6 the show reveals the true identity of Baek Hee Song to Cha Ji Won, but it was part of the drama itself. wanting to show the wife the real identity of the husband, and wife would start chasing his past and unravelling it, but still wants to trust him completely.
Flower of Evil presented and unbelievable chemistry between Lee Joon Ki and Moon Chae Won. Why didn’t we se it in “Criminal Minds”? Because Criminal minds is a crime suspense thriller drama, whilst “Flower of Evil” is not only Crime, but it is also a Mistry romance thriller combination.
Lee Joon Ki in the “Flower of Evil is an exceptional character in the world of drama. His eyes give so much emotion, and he cries very beautifully according to the character. He is one of the very few actors who can express so much emotion. Baek Hee Seong (or Do Hyun Su in his past) was conditioned by his father and people round him to believe himself to be mentally emotionless psychopath. He learned how to express human emotions by watching tutorial videos. That was hart aching.
Our Pretty detective Cha Ji Won played by Moon Chae Woon, is very natural. Her chemistry with Lee Joon ki is wonderful. A very talented actress. She portrays the emotions of a wife, after finding the truth and yet wanting to trust him. My hart went to her when she herd the conversation between brother and sister. And She hears that her husband had never had feelings for her. She walks like a lost person. Sometimes she cries and sometimes she burst out with anger, all natural.
Unlike in the Criminal minds, where there was no romance between the two, this drama has all romance and chemistry with their cute little kid Eun Ha, they looked a perfect family,
Reporter Kim Moo Jin played by Seo Hyun Woo is such a cute guy, he plays a main role in the development of the story as a bridge to Baek Hee Song’s past, sometimes indecisive, I could understand the friendship between him and Do Hyun Soo, present Baek Hee Song, and the love budding again between him and Do Hyun Soo’s Sister Do Hae Soo played by Jang Hee Jin. She plays the role of Do Hyun Soo’s older sister hidden with guilt and fear, undergone suffering for a long time alone. It is hard to overcome that fear of the past, she is hesitant to start a new relationship with kim Moo Jin, Sometimes, her actions would spoil her brother Do Hyun Soo’s plans, he has to stop her from helping. Drama could have developed some romance between Kim Moo Jin and Do Hae Soo.
Then, we have Baek Man Woo and his wife Gong Mi Ja, Baek Hee Seong’s parents. Later we come to know, together with pretending Baek Hee Song, two of them are hiding a big secret. Baek Hee Song is not their real son. In fact, they are hiding their real son, who is in a coma for many years, inside their house. at first, this was not clear to me why they did that. In later episodes it comes out as a past scene. (SPOILER ALERT!) Do Hyun Soo was hit by a car accident by their real son Baek hee song. Real Baek Hee Song was trying to burry Do Hyun Soo who was unconscious, but Go Mi Ja’s action makes real Baek Hee Song into the coma state he is now in. They make Do Hyun Soo live as Baek Hee Song. Those two live in guilt for not being able to protect their own son.
Later in the drama, Baek Hee Song (Portrayed by Kim Ji Hoon) miraculously wakes up from his coma, and this makes the already complex plot into chaos. The twist is given to the drama by Kim ji Hoon’s acting is wonderful. He was the real Psychopath. The horror and suspense livens up the already mellow drama. I was completely absorbed in. The Flower of Evil is the real Baek Hee Song.(SPOILER ENDS)
The story telling and the flow was a little bit confusing at first, I thought. But I later realised that the approach of this drama was different from normal K dramas. Telling the past scene at the beginning relating to the present link made sense. Every actors contribution to the show was wonderful. I got myself engrossed in their acting. I loved the main couple, Do Hyun Soo and Cha Ji Won and their journey of trusting each other. I really felt for Lee Joon Ki’s pain as Do Hyun Soo, when he realizes that Cha Ji Won has already known his identity and pretended not to know, and has been trusting him all along. My thankful applause to Lee Joon Ki and all at this project, it will remain unforgettable in my mind.
