No way it's the dad. His current dad?! He's not that's skinny. His real dad is dead that's confirmed by the police.

:surprisedwut:

 

I quote this from that forum "I know the police confirmed that the real dad is dead but what if WHAT IF he is still alive and healthy?! and he kills people who tries to harm his son... nowadays prob easy to disappear and fake a death haha btw this is too early to make theories hmmm

‘Flower Of Evil’ K-Thriller Delivers Monsters That Hide In Plain Sight

960x0.jpg?fit=scale

 

Would you recognize evil if you were intimately acquainted with it? Maybe not. There are an infinite number of ways to be evil, many of them subtle, almost invisible, and being close to someone does not necessarily make a person objective. 

 

The edgy new thriller Flower of Evil was perhaps named after Baudelaire’s poem La Fleurs du Mal, which touches on how monsters can hide in plain sight. Discovering you cannot trust those closest to you constitutes one of the most chilling thriller plots. 

 

The tvN drama’s opening scene is so frightening that it could be a nightmare, but it might also be an omen. In this scene Baek Hee-sung, played by Lee Jun-ki, is submerged in water, drowning, and his wife, Cha Ji-won, played by Moon Chae-won, hesitates when deciding to rescue him.

 

That dramatic sequence segues into their daily life, where these characters are happily married and the parents of an adorable child. Hee-sung seems to be the perfect husband, kind, loving, attentive enough to make snacks for his daughter’s teachers, and supportive of his wife’s career as a detective.

 

Nothing troubles their idyllic marriage until they must interact with his caustic parents for dinner. After Ji-won leaves, the parents suggest that it might be problematic for Hee-sung to be married to a detective, given his past.

I've only watched the first episode (my husband's watching with me and he's a "one episode a night" type... so primitive) but I really enjoyed it. Usually I don't bother with any form of fiction in the crime genre, as it's usually more focused on the crimes than the characters, but I feel like this will explore the characters and their backstories/relationship a lot. LJG was ovary-exploding adorable with the little girl but so chillingly cold at other times, which is a duality I was looking forward to seeing him portray; the way he talked about his wife was unsettling and I'm really curious to see the background on that marriage!

The director said it's more of a melodrama than any other genre so you're right. And your signature is so relatable.

Ep 2 thoughts - much stronger episode 

 

Spoiler

Last episode, I said MCW shines - well in this episode, the show really show cases LJK’s strong performance. So it seems he doesn’t know how to express emotions or feelings. I like that it really shared a lot of information about the past and present to keep us invested. 
 

I also the show’s realistic portrayal of the various characters in a very multifaceted way too. Humans are complicated and complex like that. Like how the journalist himself isn’t so innocent.  
 

The whole children fighting scene makes me a bit sad because I have come across parents similar to the mom of the child with the doll. They enable their children to grow up with out respecting others and think they are entitled to do as they please without consequences. It’s really a disservice to their own child. I did like the scene a lot of BHS talking to his daughter - it clearly shows he has good intentions and care for her.
 

His remark re ‘reputation’ is a key theme here. There are many bad guys that get away without consequences because they seemly look normal or have ‘good’ reputation. Meanwhile BHS has suffered because the guilt by association automatically because his dad is a serial killer. The show is asking us to consider if being a killer is hereditary is also interesting.  I don’t think it is always the case but it depends on the specific circumstances. 
 

I didn’t like the murder case of the day. It was obvious that the woman did it. The writer is trying to tie her motive to kill base on annoyance or preying on the weak ——to remind Jiwon of these kind of ‘killers’. I did like that Jiwon knew the how to handle herself and recognize the manipulation. So it will important to see how Jiwon acts when she starts seriously to suspect BHS. I am annoyed at the hot headed male detective.  

The last scene is a bit confusing to me as I don’t think Jiwon is suspicious of him yet.

I'm really enjoying this drama. Every character has their layers...and they aren't all exposed right away. 

I was kind of worried just how the storyline would address

Spoiler

leaving the reporter alive in the basement. Also, I would think if you lived with someone for 3 years...and tried to stab them for money...you would remember their voice, even on the phone.  LOL <<kidding>> 

 

Now...kudos to the young actor portraying teenage Hee Sung. His voice and evil smile? SOOOOOOOOOOOO JG like. And scary. 

Also kudos to the young daughter...she is adorable and spunky.

Ep 1 rating: 3.4%

Ep 2 rating: 2.9% 

 

Sigh. So many complaints by Knetz about the time slot. It's too late that it is affecting the ratings. Most people couldn't stay that late on weekdays. 

 

I was sad to hear the ratings dropped...and for Trot music???  :surprisedwut: Oh well...people might want some happy distractions during this COVID time.  

 

I really enjoy the Detective characters and their interplay.  The young one...I feel is going to have a pivotal role somehow. I did find it interesting

Spoiler

that he wasn't concerned upon hearing Ji-Won fighting in the bathroom.  And Ji-Won in that bathroom???  Holy intimidating! She has some scary tendencies as well.  

 

Now I'll spend a few days wondering who is the person in the rain coat.  I hope there are some twists coming up.

Are we supposed to use spoiler tags in the drama's thread?! Glad to know the rating dropped because of another show and not because they didn't like the drama. Maybe people had one TV and grandma wants her trot music dose :lol:. Hope it's not a permanent show. As for Ji Won i really don't find her behaviour scary that's how most of Kdrama's detectives act even if they were the sweetest cinnamon rolls to their families. I believe this intended to show us how ruthless she can be and how she despises manipulative people not knowing that her beloved husband is manipulating and using the weaker people.

Yups. It"s really mentioned as melodrama than thriller or mysteri.

My prediction is CJW is the real main hero in this drama. How she could trust her hubby when she found out about the crimes who is accused to his husband meanwhile he isn't the real serial killer. In first episode, we could watch when she saved her hubby and said that she would love him more than before. It pointed that there is somethin miss in his case.

I thought the background why she had to get married with BHs because she was knocked up by BHS. In first episode, there was conversation between cjw and her fake MIL (Gong Mija/GMJ). Mj mocked cjw that cjw's fam is messed, her mom nagged her dad until him die, she got pregnant to catch her son, and than take benefit her son with the birth of their daughter, and accused cjw wants to take money from the rich in law, Mj asked for cjw to consider their relationship were over too, and then cjw always apologize and ask for mj not inform to BHS about their conversation.

And I think tvN is aware about how late the episodes are being aired, as they are promoting the reruns lol

Hello! I wanna drop by because I found that tvN is doing two replays/reruns of the first two episodes of FOE. Maybe due to demand?

TBH i think Ji Won is kinda dumb isn't she?! I mean in which world you can find such a perfect husbands. They just don't exist. She should've figured it out already 

I agree with this. She shoulda known in that 14 years that something wasn't right or doesn't fit. Women's intuition...

True, I can see that he is loving his family real well, tbh when I hear him saying that she is the love of his life. It feels very real very raw, so I think it’s the truth, but..but, in a way his love for his wife do help to cover up his real story. It’s just one day...that cover will be broken by her..

 

——

We have questions about him...Like why he left his hometown and why the murder started after he left? Judging from how dramas usually goes, 100% can say that he did not kill that individual in his hometown. Then his parents(?) with the “We are on the same boat.” At first I thought that they have psychopathic genes too, but guess not(?) 

 

I wonder the hooded man...is it HS?

My guess: the hooded man is the real copycat serial killer. Baek Hee Sung would be suspected or framed and would be kidnapped by the copycat serial killer (the underwater scene). But then Cha Ji Won would solve who the real copycat killer is and save Baek Hee Sung.  Lol
