[Drama 2020] The Flower of Evil, 악의 꽃

Recommended Posts

I just finished episode 6 with subs and OH MY GOD!!!! MIC DROP!!!

 

:wut:

 

The plot twist I didn’t see coming was JW finding about DHS identity so early in the game. I was expecting the writer would tease us with a near revelation every week until the very end. This changes the tone of drama and I’m ready for it. We all suspected JW wasn’t just a sweet and dumb wife we were supposed to believe. And now we’re uncovering the layers of her personality. I totally got chills when she said at the end of episode 6 she was going to investigate DHS herself and would determine how heavy punishment he deserves for betraying her. Oh she’s definitely going to take her revenge against DHS. 
 

I find it ironic that the moment DHS realised he actually loved her is the moment she stopped trusting him and now he’s going to have to work real hard to both clear his name and prove his sincere feelings to her. He always felt lucky to meet her - she was the one who chased his hallucinations away and he used her to both stay hidden from his father and from the law. But when he saw the depth of her love for him, the desperation in saving his life, he realised he felt guilty for deceiving her, he felt sorry for betraying her... And if he felt guilty for hurting her... it must mean he has deep feelings for her.

 

It’s so heartbreaking to see JW thinking he never cared about her. When she yelled at him that he would never understand how tormenting those past 10 days were (because she thinks it’s only the one-side love), my heart ached for her.

So happy for themmmm!! Next target is to get it on Netflix and good appreciation award.

 

Watching episode 6 yesterday and I found myself so hard after putting Jiwon situation on me. Literally Jiwon is so smart and will not easily influence by the media and others. This is much heartbreaking to know that their relationship wont be as good as before but Jiwon need to pretend for the sake of Eunha

 

This story is so emotionally and physically intense and I would like to praise the director and writer for a such good drama! Not forgotten all the casts and crews. Let’s screwed us up until the end. Hehe

Just finished ep 5 and I cry :bawling:

 

BHS loves his wife. I know it. 14 years is not a short time. Some people even only need 1 month to be able to fall in love (I only need 5 mins specially if that person is as handsome as BHS lol), and the more with a couple who have been spending 14 years together in the marriage. He loves his family :bawling: 

 

 "I always thought that I was lucky to have met you. But for the first time,  I'm thinking you should have never met me."    (BHS ~ Flower of Evil ep 5)

 

How come a man can be so this insecure in seeing his own self.  

 

I think Cha Ji Woon is a perfect wife for him. For a man who always feels as insecure as BHS, CJW is a right woman. He needs CJW's POV to be able to see the positive side of himself. 

 

"You only have one problem. You don't see yourself the way I see you." (CJW ~ Flower of Evil ep 5)  

 

I can relate myself to CJW. Sometimes I see people not even in the way they see themselves. Not because we avoid to see the real side or the negative side and only choose to see the positive side and pretending. But because we love to see the positive side with a hope, that those people will feel positive and will be happy.

 

ahh I really love this couple :heart: Can't wait to watch ep 6

CJW is really an amazing character. I just watched EP 6 with subs and I am blown away. She figures out that BHS is DHS and she STILL defends him, she was STILL worried about him and she STILL genuinely cares about him. I have a good feeling about her. I think she will get him to confess the truth, and though she may be angry for a bit, I feel like she will come around to help him clear his name. The only crime he has committed is the murder of the village foreman, and I am sure that was done in self- defence (seems like he may have tried to rape his sister or something).

 

She wants to keep an open mind and give him a chance as she is confident that man that people are describing and the man that she has known for 14 years cannot be the same. 

 

Here is another observation I have made. He loves her and his daughter. Not much terrifies BHS, I saw that during his torture scene, he is not afraid of death, but he is terrified of losing his life as BHS. I think BHS is unable to recognize his own feelings of love because it doesn't match the typical feelings of love that others have. I also feel like his father may have driven it into him that he is not capable of love.

I wish Netflix will stream this.

 

I also hope LJG's dramas are available on Netflix. I kind of wonder why because they're undoubtedly great. Maybe because of the producers but are the producers the same every time? He has good dramas and it's just unfortunate.

One of the major questions has been answered. Do Hyun Su is not suffering from ASPD. He has Schizoid Personality Disorder. He's apathetic and lacks the ability to read emotions. But he's not necessarily violent. If there's anyone I fully trust in all the characters (so far), it's Hyun Su. He's always telling the truth. 

 

Hae Soo might've killed the foreman as a self defense. She was probably sexually harassed. And from what Hyun Su revealed. She might not have killed the taxi driver's wife which I initially suspected. There is someone framing both of them. 

 

Min Seok probably had another accomplice. But definitely not his children. Or he was framed as well. All the Do family members are artists. A creative household in a small town will definitely earn looks and suspicions from people who are not used to people like them. Ugh! This show is so so good in keeping people from guessing! I'm changing my theory every week!! But time and time again, they keep on repeating the danger of rumors and passing judgments; that one person actually committed a crime based on heresay. Hence, there's a good chance that the serial killing might have been committed by someone familar, and unsuspicious, to the villagers. 

 

I loooove the writer of this show. There's definitely a message she wants to tell her audience. But there's subtlety and finesse in her manner of storytelling, that it doesn't feel contrived and cringey (I'm looking at you, Signal). Also, she has fully-fleshed out characters. Their impulses and tendencies feels true to their characters. Nothing feels forced. That's why my favorite scenes in this episode is Cho's interrogation and Ji Won's outburst. We knew Cho would do that because that's his nature. And Ji Won. Such a strong, tenacious character. 

 

I really truly love this show! ♥️

 

One thing that I'm kind of scratching my head though is the switcheroo. How did the Baek's managed to fool the people around them about their son. I mean, they were both adults then. It's not like Hee Sung has been hiding in their basement all his life that no one knows him beyond his parents.

Lee Jung Ki's Hyun Su took Kim Ji Hoon's Baek Hee Sung's identity. The real Hee Sung is in a coma. They are unrelated as far as we know. The reason for the whole switcheroo is still unknown. But the Baeks seems to have planned the ruse and used Hyun Su. Why they've done it, no one knew yet.

This episodes is full of revelation, tension, surprises, and finally, a slap against the hypocrisies...literally

 

I am so happy that the latest release finally tackles the major factors in the Korea societies, baseless gossips or rumors vs the truth and facts.  Right now, I hear more and more celebrities like Lee Min-Ho, the group Super Junior's rapper and more K-idols finally decide to take a stand against the malicious comments.  Many, many famous k stars like them had died in suicides due to those vicious mainstreams and no one helped them in their time of need that they sank into deep depressions. The producers of this drama just made a bold move of making the ML whose life is ruin from the baseless rumors  due to his mental disorder and the FL is the one who seeks the full truths with her own eyes.

 

Euh Ha is so adorable both her current age and her baby self.  That 'mother' said some hurtful things about her after she left but glad that HS talk her down and tell her to address his daughter by her name.  Poor little girl suffered from anxiety but she bounced back in the ending seeing her daddy on his feet.

 

All the casts...well almost all, did a fantastic job in this one.  Moo Jin finally discovers that the other killer is still alive and it's the same one who threaten Nam Soo-Kil during those 4 months.  The doorman murder was possibly not a self-defense or accident as that killer admitted that the old man got in his way. His comic relief in finding the truth was so fun to watch. Along with his conversation with HS being his puppy.  The mother's hysterics hinted what happen to her son's accident 15 years ago.  Guess it was after the other HS replaced him.  the real one seems pretty decent while trying to help him.  I'm a bit sad we didn't see much of DHS in the present time but how she knew the culprit is a mystery as HS said, someone is trying to pin her at Min-Sook's disappearance.  I feel bad for her that the gossiping made her quit her job but the director never blamed her for her family background nor ruin his work.  He didn't judge her like everyone else in her life like Moo Jin breaking up with her due to her father.   The driver finally understands the rumors about HS are false.  He was smart pretending to be catatonic after surgery and regretted killing a not so innocent man.  After hearing all of HS confession, he finally decides to use his remaining time to find the culprit.  

 

Now for the leads, HS finally decide to learn the truth of the murders. He was so caught off guard of his wife tormented reactions over his unconscious state for 10 days and was visibly shaken by them. HS was pissed off at the driver at his attempts in ruin his life but like Nam Soo-Kil, he didn't take his revenge instead, he asked how he felt when his wife was gone and sympathized.  He didn't go through his 'father's plans to shut him up like the usual k-drama style but having the driver on his side was the smartest thing to do.  HS confesses the whole truth while playing mind games with the driver with the drug was clever.  He was actually shocked that his single parent was the killer on TV just like everyone else.  His father might have some knowledge in treating  his mental issues as we seen some fond memories of his moments with his sister. Even now he's protective of her and wants her a normal life which is now threaten once more.  He was fairly docile during his father's funeral and didn't suffer from any bullying until the tv announcement.  Since the folks weren't aware of his anti social disorders as they were still unknown in that period and still are, they treated him horribly with their gossips, exorcisms and harassment. What will his reactions will be when he finds out he confesses being Do Hyun Soo to his wife.  Their confrontation with his past will be the next thing to watch out for as seen in the highlight trailer, they will make love some time after that and he'll show his scar.  Just like before, she'll help him feel thing he never knew and will start trusting her the 1st time with his conditions. 

 

MC is today's highlight of this episode. She secretly tries to cover for her husband without anyone noticing after confessing he's Do Hyun Soo.  She saw his father workshop and noticed the similarities and done her investigations. At first, she was conflicted with the info and the gossiping all the people who knew Hyun Soo.  Then she remembered his time with baby Eun Ha that she finally saw the kind of man he was actually underneath.  Despite trying to arrest him, she slammed Nam Soo-Kil's wife over the baseless info her husband fed her and the things posted on the internet over the facts she knows as a police officer.  She looked into his file with her eyes wide open and saw no one had seen him doing any hideous acts before the foreman's murder.  She knows he's not a psychopath just someone who needs help with his conditions while seeking the truth.  I'm so happy to see the actress is doing a drama about mental issues again and she does a fantastic job in that department.  We know the next episode, she studies his conditions then trick him in bringing him back to his father's shop where we'll see his conflicted state while trying to choke her.

I had a busy week so am only starting to watch ep 5 now and oy! Unpredictable and really exciting! MCW’s phone freak out scene with her sunbae was very well done. 
 

ohhh so much in just one episode but now I think Jiwon knew from the beginning that her husband isn’t normal per se. The scene of them kissing and him telling his father to go away was good! It explains and proves that he has some real feelings for her. I found it interesting that she’s willing to protect him too even when she didn’t have the answers yet. 
 

Now watching ep 6. Boom! I am really liking the pace of this show! JW knows the truth now  yey! I am just grateful that they didn’t wait until waaaaay later for it. Overall, slower episode but it was nice setting the scene for what’s to come.

I haven’t found any addictive series after CLOY... I tried several series but lost interest a few episodes in. I watched FOE and I am captivated! I  love MCW since Innocent Man and it is my first series with LJK. They are such great actors!  The emotion is so raw! The angsts! The tension! The supporting cast is doing an excellent job as well! The pretend parents, esp the mom, are obnoxious to say the least. Then we have EH  who is a cutie pie! I just can’t wait for next Wed and Thurs! I love coming here and reading the recaps and insights! You guys are making the series so much more fun! Thank you!

I think several of LJG older dramas are on Netflx: Arang, Scholar who walks the night...last time I checked.

Eunha: That cloud looks like an egg tart.

Heesong: It looks like your mom.

 

weird but this scene really stood out for me. Eunha saw egg tart (her favorite) whereas Heesong saw Jiwon (his favorite) </3

 

don't know how i'll get over this heartbreak but i'm really looking forward to it! i want to applaud the actors and everyone involved because the sad scenes are not exaggerated to add a melodramatic touch, it's so natural and well-done. this one is one of the few dramas where you can actually feel for the characters and understand where they're coming from. 

 

 the unpredictability of this drama is mind-blowing, to say the least. i don't have any idea about the killer/accomplice but i think they might've been already introduced (?) given the fact that the character is very important to the drama.
