- It's D-DAY       Calling all Pretty FLOWERS       EPISODE 01                  

If only the TIME didn't stopped... The kissing session will consume for 30 minutes.       The slow-burn sweet kisses  were so HOT and sexy.

OMO the real BHS is so freaking scary. I almost hid my eyes when he appears on my screen hahaha. 

 

Everything is uncontrollable in Baek family. The parents are 100% aware that their terrific son who will keep on killing. The snowball will be for sure out of control. The mother is going crazy, she even wants to take care of the mess. She is not in her right mind now (thanks to her problematic son) and will need a BIG psychotherapy (if his son does not kill her meanwhile) :o

 

Regarding the preview, The Baek are scheming DHS to take the blame for the nurse's murder ? 

 

The real BHS succeeded to stand up after years of coma... Miracles and fast recoveries exist in Kdramas LOL. It gives me hope HAHA

Hello! I've just decided to jump back into this forum after a couple of years of being away just because I've been so absolutely captivated by this drama. I've honestly been loving every minute of it.

 

I don't know if it's been posted or mentioned here before, but there is a great YouTube channel, Drama addiction, that puts up analysis of episodes and scenes and talks about things that I probably wouldn't have thought about otherwise. It's in Korean, but they do put up subtitles with it so everyone can understand. I just think their analysis are so insightful regarding the whole drama and they focus a lot on some of the smaller aspects, the details that would typically probably go unnoticed to some people.

 

I do absolutely love this drama and I'm curious about how it'll end. I think the cast is either finishing up or maybe somehow already has finished filming the series because Kim Ji Hoon posted a picture of the script for episode 16 on his Instagram story I think maybe at the end of last week?

I'm curious though... after so many years in coma to walk and run around like that. He should basically have no muscles on his body. He would be too weak to overpower the maid even... But I guess we have to buy it for the sake of the drama storytelling.

 

I think though... that Baek Hee Sung is now coming for Do Hyun Soo and it's scaring the heck out of me!

@Jillia, oops after the GIFs, I fell asleep:blink: I am  a few hours ahead of Korean time .... But yes, after in coma for so many years, he just pops up and fully charged ready to kill again... a super machine, what the heck, well, this is a drama, we can't be too serious  and I am ok to let it sly among other things:P

 

I guess the finale will be the show down between Baek Heesung and Do Hyun Soo, can't believe the drama is coming to an end... I can feel my withdrawal symptom coming, ahhhhhh

i think this drama is not about complex charactorization as we thought. 

It's mostly about a pot boiling plot that is focused on aligining the peices together. Its all about the suspense , the story and the chase.

I doubt we will see more dimensions to the characters. We are just going get the chase and answers wrapped up nicley.

@Madu Mita, it is not as complex as we thought but still not one dimensional. I can live with that, it is still daebak!!

Now what are the chances that Baek Hee Sung was the actual killer and Do Min Seok the accomplice? Maybe Do Min Seok joined him while investigating the disappearance of his wife. We know she disappeared when Hyun Su was just a child. 

 

Hee Sung came to know about his plans and killed him. Put all the blame on him and went underground for some years. 

 

@Sleepy Owl, I an with you that BHS might be the actual killer - he certainly did not hesitate to kill and the actor is showing a very menacing look...

hypothetical question: If one of them has to die (hyun soo, ji won, hae soo and moo jin)- who do you think would be the victim?

 

 

 

Oh please not Hyun Soo and Jiwon - they have been through so much already... just let the real Baek heesung die ...

Yikes the scariest people apparently is the entire Baek family!

 

That poor deaf ahjumma who turns out to actually be able to hear and read lips. And oy Hee Seong is really really scary~ 

 

Now they're tryin' to pin it all on poor Hyun Soo.. Gomawo Jae Seop sunbae for havin' faith in Hyun Soo, one need only to look at Eun Ha and her bond with her appa to know that he's a decent human being. Ji Won remains steadfast and true just like the song Stand By Your Man LoL.

 

What was Hae Soo thinking..? She placed Hyun Soo and herself in greater danger..

I have to commend this drama for the tight writing and excellent execution. In many (probably most?) other dramas, the plot is propelled forward by stupidity. In Flower of Evil, there were moments where I was screaming at the characters to do something that they had overlooked. For instance, when Hyun Soo could have easily taken the envelop from gang boss’s back pocket to learn the accomplice’s identity while the guy was unconscious. 
 

But I actually understood why HS forgot. His back story, his knowing that JW knows everything, their deep relationship—it all made logical sense and worked so well with the story. Especially because the acting is so superb. So I’m quite pleased. I hope this excellence continues to the end. :yay:

 

In terms of what’s to come, does anything think there may be a possible birth switch somewhere? Like Hyun soo is actually Hee Seong but he was kidnapped? That’s why he has no memories before he was 10 years old?  :lol:

Have been extremely disappointed with the overall Baek Hee Sung standing thing, but now we see him going full psychopath mode.  Plotting and most probably targeting Hae Soo maybe as shown in the preview. It is obvious that he'll go after her because she is the only one who can identify him as the accomplice. Her plan to go to meet Baek Man Woo without discussing with anyone was actually bad and it instead exposed her to the Baek family and will put everyone in danger. 

 

The maid had it coming, if she really cared for her life, she could have just quit without being much greedy. I mean she saw how scary Baek Hee Sung was even while sitting in the wheelchair, must have known how powerful Baek Man Woo is by reading his lips while he would talk about. She literally asked for her death at that time. 

 

The whole Baek Hee Sung standing scene sure was disappointing :smashes:, but it was very much intense. I think they portrayed that scene very well, you feel the tension and also see how terrified both the maid and his mother were. I actually thought he would go after his mother, but was relieved when he didn't. So now it is Baek family vs Hyun Su and co. I guess. 

 

It is nice to see Hee Sung showing his emotions now. Also finally the village foreman murder gets closed. 

 

So as predicted by many, they'll try to frame Hyun Su for the maid's murder and their plan might work. Her body will be found in the mountains (as shown in ep 12's preview). Also all evidences will direct towards Hyun Su, because we also see him getting handcuffed by Ji Won in same preview.

So how is everyone holding up so far?

:heartxoxo:

 

I saw some posts of FOE chingus being disappointed that in the end Do Hyun Soo isn't a killer but a misunderstood human being with a problematic childhood and being different from "normal" people. How is your standing? Would the drama have been better if he was a serial killer? Or doesn't it matter? :D

 

Also, some fluffy Baek Hee Sung / Do Hyun Soo with the terrible blonde wig but cute cherry blossoms in his hair. :lol:

I actually started the drama hoping Hyun Soo be the ultimate baddie. I mean think about how amazing the story would be, a psychopath being underground for more than decade, having settled with a family. If they would go this way, the story would be good too. I read on this thread that many people in Korea had posted online that they would not watch it if the story was like this. Dunno whether this made them to tweak the story a bit or not. 

 

What I expected was keeping the viewers on edge and in confusion as the whether he really was the killer/accomplice or not and the suspense would carry on to like some final 2 episodes. Like they did in Jang Hyuk's movie "Client". We didn't know whether he was the killer or not till the final few minutes. I know it was a movie and using similar plot for drama would be hard, but with a skillful writing it could be much better plot I guess and it would actually be a unique drama too. We watching not knowing whether he is the killer or innocent. I think they did it for the first 2-3 episodes, but then revealed everything. People had doubts, but were convinced that he had nothing to do with the murders. 

 

Although it was not disappointing for that they didn't that way, but would have loved if they did. I think the audience really didn't want to see their "Oppa" being the serial killer. But the way they moved the plot ahead was really good. Got to commend their story telling and its pace, except for of course BAEK HEE SUNG STANDING :smashes:. Now I really hope after this, they'll not make the story go downhill suddenly. I don't want to see any other WTH moments in this drama.

So our man gonna get framed again for murder.... So how is he gonna get too clear his name? :( But I have a feeling it is gonna backfire on Baek family. In the preview they clearly have laid items evidence to HS murdering the maid. But then the police should be suspicious how obvious those items with DNA around the victim. Like someone out there to frame HS. I mean a killer would not lay all his DNA on the murdered place. I feel this gonna be the start on how HS gonna show his innocence and clear his name. Also wonder how the they gonna come closer to the Baek family. So like I said in framing HS they also laid some track that could make them come out in the spotlight.

For me.. the reason i start to watch the drama because of there is highest possibilites that thw hero are pyschopat based on trailer i watch. I just cant believe that they will make a killer as hero..

 

Maybe if hyunsoo is the killer i still watch it.. but i hope that in that version.. the dont make us attachedd/love hyun soo as caring lovable husband. I want them to make me believe that his love toward his wife are fake.

 

If in that version is same like the current.. i kinda in dilemma cuz love a pyschopart who killed people

@Sleepy Owl @ainipang

I understand your sentiments. :D

 

For me, weirdly, I went in without any expectations. I was just very happy to have Lee Jun Ki and Moon Chae Won in another drama again. :D Then I found out and was intrigued. I think I would've expected Lee Jun Ki a killer if it were OCN and the drama would go to darker places than it already does on tvN.

 

I have to admit I was hoping for a more ambiguous Do Hyun Soo in this drama. I wanted him to be harder to root for. I think I would be okay if in the end he isn't a killer (before we knew he isn't) as long as the drama doesn't make him too good and too misunderstood. I think the - so far - did a good job to resolve the issue but of course that leaves viewers who expected more or something different unsatisfied.

 

I also think it's a bit sad for Cha Ji Won because the teasers hinted to conflicts and even the first episodes were very much clear on that Cha Ji Won is on one hand a detective who only finds suspects with evidence (but also doesn't shy away from using violence) and on the other hand a wife and mother who would "eat the poison" her husband gives her. I would've loved to see more conflict on her part but since Do Hyun Soo is pretty much absolved this conflict is non-existent.

 

Also, I'm a bit sad that - and I'm sure of it - the hint to Ji Won's "two face" and her past with her father won't play a big if any role anymore. And that's such a waste.

 

I still find myself very entertained and the drama is definitely one of the TOP this year. So that's something. :D
