its quite widely known that LJG is beyond nice and approachable to his fans. but i would also like to point out that his fandom is exceptional in a lot of ways, which explains why he is always so nice

Something to brighten up the mood  Got this nice Japanese magazine with Joon Gi on the cover as well as the Japanese DVD for MLSHR, both with long and interesting interviews of the MLSHR cast.

OMG! The 4th prince has his own thread! I discovered it by accident! I love him since friday, the day i started watching SHR. It started with this scene: then it intensified by infinity beca

@willenette,  how can we not adore him? :wub:

 I didn't think he looked sleepy, although he did apologise for having a puffy face during the talk - of which I don't know why he needs to apologise ... But I did notice a scratch  under his right eye which he used a lot of make up to cover it up ...:wacko: And boy, can this man talk and never a bore moment too ( I am following gunman on instagram and got to rewatch it with subs)

 

yet, first and foremost for me, Lee Joon Gi is such a great actor and he is still getting better and better. This is what I admire about him, a real professional , always trying to find ways to improve and to grow as an actor, dedicated and hardworking. I think this is why so many fans have stayed by his side for so long, not to mention his adorable personality  , his athleticism, dancing and singing  and his look is just unique. I hope to see more of him in future and would love to go to the fan meeting when covid is over...

 

But the image is NOT Lee Joon Gi,    JG is far far prettier , (my opinion)

The image is  ryusdb 柳俊烈,  

 

@Tuiwgn, ye, you're right. He's Ryu Junyeol. Thanks for the correction. :anguished:

“Flower Of Evil” Director Explains His Intentions Behind Impactful Episode Ending Scenes

 

e72233a3448b466386c67e43a9afb866.jpeg?s=

 

The director of “Flower of Evil” has broken down the way certain scenes are filmed and the message he aims to portray.

 

tvN’s “Flower of Evil” stars Lee Joon Gi as Baek Hee Sung, a man who hides his past as Do Hyun Soo and pretends to love his wife Cha Ji Won (played by Moon Chae Won). As a detective, Cha Ji Won begins to suspect that her husband may be a serial killer, and the couple is ultimately forced to confront a dark truth they never wanted to face.

 

The suspenseful thriller has been boasting impressive viewership ratings thanks to its exciting plot, but also in part due to the extremely impactful endings of each episode. Though every episode had its own unique and eye-catching conclusion, director Kim Chul Gyu picked the three most thrilling endings and described his specific intentions for each one.

Spoilers

Spoiler

Episode 1 – Usage of space and the basement that holds the secrets behind Lee Joon Gi and Moon Chae Won’s seemingly happy marriage

The premiere of “Flower of Evil” depicted the happy everyday life between married couple Baek Hee Sung and Cha Ji Won. However, the ending threw in an extreme twist by revealing Baek Hee Sung’s true identity as Do Hyun Soo and his workshop on the first floor. Lastly, they revealed the secret basement where he had locked up Kim Moo Jin (Seo Hyun Woo), who knows Do Hyun Soo’s secret.

 

Regarding his reason for picking this divisive two-story house to portray these secrets, Kim Chul Gyu explained, “In terms of video content, I think that a character’s environment often explains their personality or circumstances better than any line or story.”

 

He continued, “In that aspect, the second floor is the warm and peaceful family space, whereas the first floor is the workshop and the space that connects them to the outer world and other people. Deciding on the basement as the place to hold his dark secret fits with Do Hyun Soo’s complicated and secretive situation. I thought that having all these separate places in one location was necessary for the character Do Hyun Soo to be able to move between his extremely complex and multilayered sides and carry on this interesting and nerve-wracking storyline.”

Episode 5 – Contrasts, the music video, and Moon Chae Won’s emotions after seeing Lee Joon Gi unconscious

The ending of episode 5 had viewers extremely emotional when Cha Ji Won sobbed as she saved Do Hyun Soo from drowning. In his hazy state, Do Hyun Soo looked upon his wife and experienced a change in emotion. Unlike his past self, who insisted that he didn’t understand emotion, he recognized what it was like to feel apologetic for the first time and experienced regret. The scene showed Cha Ji Won’s reflection in the water as she saved her husband, and some viewers interpreted this to mean that she was saving not only Baek Hee Sung, but also his hidden identity Do Hyun Soo.

 

Regarding this view, Kim Chul Gyu shared, “This drama has a ton of hidden contrasts. Most notably, the contrast between good and bad, lies and truth, love and hate, and though this is a slightly different concept, the contrast between melodrama and thriller. I think the way these conflicting ideas are all in full force creates the tension that becomes the strength that carries the plot.”

 

The director added, “In the middle of it is the character Do Hyun Soo, who strongly contrasts with the other characters within the drama. He simultaneously has all of the contrasts mentioned previously within himself.

 

To put it simply, he’s a troublesome character (not only to himself, but to other characters as well), but he’s also a charming character because of that. I believe that the ending to episode 5 symbolically shows what kind of character Do Hyun Soo is.”

 

Additionally, after the episode, the drama aired a music video depicting Cha Ji Won’s emotional scene, rather than a preview for their next broadcast. Regarding this decision, the director commented, “There were two intentions. The first is that episodes 1 to 5 focused on incidents, and the end of episode 5 marked this midway point. I wanted to send the message that starting from episode 6, we would be focusing more on emotion rather than specific incidents and portraying a slightly different story for the time being.”

 

He continued, “The second is that the impact of having Do Hyun Soo in a critical state in the ending was too strong. Realistically, we judged that immediately showing him in a different way in the preview would be uncomfortable.”

Episode 8 – The real Baek Hee Sung vs. the fake Baek Hee Sung

In episode 8, viewers were shocked to see the real Baek Hee Sung (played by Kim Ji Hoon) wake up after being unconscious. This scene was juxtaposed with the face of the fake Baek Hee Sung (Lee Joon Gi), who had been using his name and identity, and gave viewers the chills.

 

With regards to this legendary ending, Kim Chul Gyu shared, “What viewers are probably most curious about are, ‘What is the real Baek Hee Sung going to do?’ ‘What kind of role will he play?’ and ‘What will be the relationship between the two Baek Hee Sung?’ I think this ending emerged as we thought about what would heighten the curiosity about these questions.”

 

Episode 9 left an impact with its explosive ending depicting the tense emotions between Do Hyun Soo and Cha Ji Won, while episode 10 portrayed an emotional ending as Cha Ji Won’s fellow detective discovered her husband’s true identity. With comments from viewers like, “Every episode seems like the finale,” viewers expectations and excitement for the remaining episodes only continue to rise.

 

Catch the next episode of “Flower of Evil” on Wednesday, September 2 at 10:50 p.m. KST. Thursday’s episode will be replaced by a special broadcast.

‘Flower of Evil’: Lee Joongi portrays growth of Do Hyunsoo who lacks emotion … Eliciting both fluttering hearts and maternal instincts

 

Lee Joongi’s ‘Do Hyun Soo’ has reached the hearts of viewers.

 

Portraying the growth of protagonist Do Hyunsoo in tvN’s Wed/Thu drama ‘Flower of Evil,’ Lee Joongi has, once again, wowed the viewers with his acting.

 

c8d4fe127129f2282181eeedd63aa74cee9ed5a8

 

Earlier in the drama, Lee Joongi left an indelible impression as Baek Heeseong, who hides his real identity as murder suspect Do Hyunsoo. He is a loving and caring husband and father, but changes completely when his real identity is about to get exposed, stoking doubts in viewers as a murder suspect.

 

But as the story unfolds, the doubts about him have turned into cheers and maternal instincts. Even though he appears unable to feel emotions, the behaviors he has unconsciously displayed reflect the true feelings he has deep inside of him. In the tense psychological warfare with his wife Cha Jiwon (Moon Chaewon), who’s found out about Heeseong’s real identity, viewers have related to the constantly changing emotional complexity in Do Hyunsoo.

 

51060bb66171431e5cbe740a2f207cd1402cc990

 

Although lacking in emotional empathy, Do Hyunsoo has won the hearts of viewers because of actor Lee Joongi’s acting. In the earlier episodes, Lee Joongi surprised viewers by shifting effortlessly between warm-hearted Baek Heeseong and cold-hearted, creepy Do Hyunsoo. But his acting really shines through as Do Hyunsoo’s real identity gets gradually revealed.

 

With his facial expressions alone, Lee Joongi has perfectly portrayed the change in Do Hyunsoo, who couldn’t feel the emotion of love, as he meets Cha Jiwon. His small face fully expresses those complex emotions ranging from embarrassment, anxiety, and fear, which Hyunsoo has about the feelings he’s never experienced before, to the genuine feelings he starts to develop for Jiwon. His acting has naturally led viewers to identify with Do Hyunsoo.

 

fb408b12b409b425e608a2640c508752917339a1

 

The ‘Do Hyun Soo’ as created by Lee Joongi’s dedicated emotional acting has drawn acclaim that this is the ‘character you’ve never seen before,’ writing a new page in the history of characters lacking in emotion. Lee Joongi has successfully created a multifaceted character through his detailed emotional expression, touching the viewers of ‘Flower of Evil.’ He has once again reminded us of his reputation as ‘reliable actor’ and continues to demonstrate his masterful acting that know no bounds.

 

tvN’s ‘Flower of Evil’ led by Lee Joongi airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 10:50 pm.

4 Things We Loved & 1 Thing We Hated About Episodes 9 & 10 Of “Flower Of Evil”

 

Episodes 9 and 10 of tvN’s “Flower of Evil” embody the meme of Elmo when he stands with his hands in the air with flames burning gallantly behind him. Chaos ensues for both Cha Ji Won (Moon Chae Won) and Baek Hee Sung (Lee Joon Gi) as they navigate their marriage and try and find Do Min Seok’s (Choi Byung Mo) accomplice before the truth of his identity comes to light. While it’s mostly filled with angst and despair, viewers can’t help but bask in it. Moon Chae Won and Lee Joon Gi deliver flawless performances, and their chemistry oozes in every scene they share. Here are the things we loved and hated about the new episodes.

 

Warning: spoilers for the new episodes below. 

Spoiler

LOVED: Do Hae Soo saying Cha Ji Won is precious to Baek Hee Sung

The biggest debate between the characters every week is if Hee Sung is capable of feeling emotions. After being diagnosed with an anti-social personality disorder when he was young, Hee Sung has adamantly believed that he is incapable of feeling emotion. When marital problems arise, Hee Sung quickly calls a meeting with Kim Mu Jin (Seo Hyun Woo) and Do Hae Soo (Jang Hee Jin). He admits that Ji Won told him she doesn’t love him anymore, and he doesn’t know how to fix it. While they try and figure out a solution, Hae Soo admits that Ji Won must be precious to Hee Sung. Of course, Hee Sung tries to brush it off but Hae Soo persists.

The scenes between the Do siblings are always so heartwarming. It’s clear that Hae Soo understands her brother the most and can tell what he’s feeling even if he can’t. When she admits that Ji Won must be precious to him, viewers’ hearts can only melt. After she finishes explaining what she means, Hee Sung doesn’t make any other comment. Even if he doesn’t believe it fully yet, some part of him must know that he does in fact love his family.

LOVED: The “I miss you” scene

The most gut-wrenching scene this week is definitely when Ji Won confronts Hee Sung and tells him she wants to end their marriage because she has fallen out of love. Seriously, talk about a knife through the heart. However, as the serial murder case continues, she finds herself torn between her feelings. She admits to herself with tears that she misses Hee Sung and later on repeats these thoughts out loud to him over the phone after realizing he’s in danger.

any reasons. Ji Won recognizing that Hee Sung is in danger is impressive. She’s very quick-witted, and instead of freaking out, she takes control of the situation. The way Hee Sung effortlessly goes along with her request proves how great they work together. Then, of course, viewers will love the part where she admits that she misses him. When she crushed all of Hee Sung’s dreams earlier in the episode, it really seemed like there was no hope for their relationship. However, it’s clear that she wants to give him one last chance. It is such a tender scene, and it builds up nicely to their park scene where Ji Won dawns on the realization that she was all he ever had.

K-dramas have had some pretty awesome pairings this year, and these two are definitely shaping up to be one of the best.

LOVED: Hae Soo’s phone call to Ji Won

Is there anything better than a protective big sister? Tired of sitting around and being guilt-ridden that her brother has taken the fall for her past actions, Hae Soo decides to set the record straight. She has an emotional phone call with Ji Won where she admits that Hyun Soo is not the killer. While she doesn’t admit that she was the killer, she promises to tell Ji Won all of the details once she finishes what she has to do.

 

Hae Soo is such a strong and resilient character. She has been through so much, and one can only imagine all of the emotions she has dealt with over the years. It’s awesome that she is taking control of her narrative in her own way. Instead of just sitting idly by, she wants to make things right for her brother. Not only does this help Hyun Soo, but it also gives her an opportunity for some healing. She wants to make things right on her own terms, and this was the first step to doing so.

LOVED: Ji Won’s phone call with Do Hyun Soo

Miscommunication is a popular trope for angst in K-dramas, and it has been undeniably agonizing in the past few weeks of “Flower of Evil.” Although Ji Won has known the truth about her husband, she has not made it known, and Hee Sung has made no move to come clean to her. However, all of that changes when Ji Won calls Hee Sung with Hyun Soo’s number. She asks him about the cassette tape and eventually tells him to stay safe during the raid of the human trafficking ring. After she hangs up, Hee Sung has the sudden realization that she called around the time she promised to call him earlier when they spoke on the phone as husband and wife.

Did anyone else jump for joy or sigh deeply in relief at this scene? Finally, finally, all of their cards are on the table. While it wasn’t said with many words, this changes their dynamic completely. From this point forward, no matter how things turn out, they have to be working together in some capacity. Hyun Soo now knows that Ji Won accepts him completely. Judging from the promo for episode 11, their angst period won’t be ending any time soon, but it’s exhilarating to know that their deep support and mutual love for each other will shine through. Moon Chae Won and Lee Joon Gi’s chemistry truly shines in this scene ,and you can feel how deeply the characters love each other.

HATED: Baek Man Woo promising to give Ji Won and Eun Ha to his real son

Baek Man Woo (Son Jong Hak) proves to be the shadiest character in the show. Since we know from previous episodes that murder isn’t above him, his conversation with the real Baek Hee Sung (Kim Ji Hoon) is downright chilling. When the real Hee Sung inquires about the man who took over his life and his current physical condition, Man Woo promises him that he can have a fairytale ending.

 

While the conversation itself is a little vague, it really comes across as if he’s going to get rid of Hyun Soo and make Ji Won and Eun Ha (Jung Seo Yeon) be apart of his family. The fact that he thinks he could make Ji Won and Eun Ha take part in such a scheme is even more unsettling. They aren’t inanimate objects to be given away. Not to mention, it was clear from the premiere episodes that he didn’t want to have any part in Ji Won’s and Eun Ha’s lives, so why is he so eager to give them away to his son? He is sly and insidious, and he is definitely shaping up to be a formidable villain in the show.

Lee Joon Gi, Seo Hyun Woo, And Jang Hee Jin Face Unexpected Trouble In “Flower Of Evil”

 

d20afd27b47e4e1db195ae545a79cd5e.jpeg?s=

 

The suspense is growing in tvN’s “Flower of Evil”!

 

The drama stars Lee Joon Gi as Baek Hee Sung, a man who hides his past as Do Hyun Soo and pretends to love his wife Cha Ji Won (Moon Chae Won). As a detective, Cha Ji Won begins to suspect that her husband may be a serial killer, and the couple is ultimately forced to confront a dark truth they never wanted to face.

Spoiler

Spoiler

In the upcoming episode, Do Hae Soo (Jang Hee Jin) will visit Kim Moo Jin (Seo Hyun Woo) in efforts to help find the real culprit behind the serial killing cases after Do Hyun Soo is accused of being an accomplice. In the newly released stills, Kim Moo Jin’s face appears beaten up and bruised. Do Hae Soo looks at him with a gaze full of concern and fear, hinting that something serious has occurred.

 

Previously, Do Hyun Soo planned a deal with Yum Sang Chul (Kim Ki Moo) of the human trafficking gang to find the true identity of the accomplice. He agreed to exchange 100 million won (approximately $84,340) for the kidnapping victim as well as the accomplice’s picture and name. However, Do Hyun Soo had set up a plan to act as bait and to round up the terrible gang by sharing the information of the exchange with the detectives including Cha Ji Won. Furthermore, Do Hyun Soo asked Kim Moo Jin for help just in case, but no one could be certain whether the dangerous plan would succeed.

 

With the way Kim Moo Jin appears, it’s difficult to be optimistic that the plan has completely succeeded. Furthermore, tension continues to flow between Kim Moo Jin and Do Hae Soo, who seems to be in great shock despite her resolve to face any danger for the sake of her younger brother. Viewers are curious to discover how Kim Moo Jin has gotten injured and for what reason Do Hae Soo has chosen to visit him.

 

More stills also reveal Do Hyun Soo captured and bleeding. He maintains a fierce gaze even while kneeling in front of Yum Sang Chul, who connected the victims to the real culprit and accomplice in the past serial killings.

With Do Hyun Soo’s hand tightly tied up and Yum Sang Chul’s sly smile, the stills hint that a dangerous situation might unfold in the upcoming episode, raising curiosity as to whether Do Hyun Soo will able to keep his promise and return safely home according to Cha Ji Won’s wishes.

The production team shared that the incident will act as a catalysis that causes Do Hyun Soo’s emotions to explode in a way viewers have yet to see. They added, “Please keep an eye out for what decision Do Hyun Soo and Cha Ji Won will make as they stand in front of a truth that could ruin their lives.”

 

The next episode of “Flower of Evil” airs on September 2 at 10:50 p.m. KST.

[SBS Star] Kim Ji Suk Shares What Lee Joon Gi's Obsession Was When He Was in the Military

 

201467194_1280.jpg

 

Actor Kim Ji Suk shared what actor Lee Joon Gi was obsessed about when they were in the military together. Recently, one past video of Kim Ji Suk and Lee Joon Gi started going around online. The video showed Kim Ji Suk talking about Lee Joon Gi on a television show.
 

201467195_1280.jpg

 

Kim Ji Suk said, "Do you guys know what Lee Joon Gi's nickname was when he was in the military? Everyone called him a robotic vacuum cleaner."

 

When asked why, Kim Ji Suk explained, "He always liked everything to be super organized. Wherever he walked past, it became neat. If you ever opened his locker, you would be surprised; it is so clean and organized."
 

201467196_1280.jpg

 

He continued, "Lee Joon Gi goes as far as this; when his seniors are drinking a cup of drink, he would wait for him to finish so that he can clean it up. It's like he is obsessed with cleaning and organizing." Then, entertainer Boom laughingly added, "That's one downside of Lee Joon Gi; he enjoys throwing things away too much. He throws away everything."
 

Lee Joon Gi then commented, "If you opened a drink, then you should drink all of it on the spot. Sometimes, they don't and that's a serious issue right there." He laughed at his own words for a bit, then went on, "I'm not obsessed with cleaning and organizing. I just thought some seniors of mine were not as clean and neat as how they look and behave. If you get what I mean..."

if it was shown in a better time slot, I am sure it will be even more than 8%, but, at least  it is grabbing lots of headlines and excellent reviews  - FOE is undeniably a  great drama!

And JG portrayed this very complex and difficult character brilliantly!

“Flower Of Evil” Screenwriter Talks About Her Inspiration For The Drama And Explains Meaning Of Title

 

6a3609d0ef7e440ab19f9428194447c9.jpeg?s=

 

Yoo Jung Hee, the screenwriter of tvN’s “Flower of Evil,” recently sat down for an interview to talk about her drama.

 

“Flower of Evil” is about a detective (Moon Chae Won) who begins to suspect her perfect husband (Lee Joon Gi) of being a serial killer.

 

The drama first garnered attention with its shocking premise: “What if you start to suspect the husband you’ve loved for 14 years might be a serial killer?” Yoo Jung Hee said, “I was thinking through various concepts and I came up with the idea of a husband who pretends to be noble and pure and a wife who loves with an innocent heart. I liked the irony in that.”

 

She continued, “I also thought it was interesting to ask this question: if someone does their absolute best for their partner in order to take their own dark secret to the grave, can you really say that they are living a lie? I wanted to beef up that story, so I raised the stakes in making the couple a serial killer and detective.”

 

About the title, Yoo Jung Hee explained, “While creating the character Do Hyun Soo [played by Lee Joon Gi], I thought of Charles Baudelaire’s book of poetry called ‘Les Fleurs du mal’ [‘The Flowers of Evil’ in English]. His poems were about the chaos and anxiety that arises when societal values, which should be clear-cut and black-and-white, become ambiguous and borderline. I thought that was similar to the character. I wanted people to think about the beauty of a desperate life when they thought of the drama.”

 

She further explained, “I wanted to share the message that even where evil has been buried, flowers can still bloom. ‘Flower of Evil’ represents Do Hyun Soo’s image, which cannot be defined as black or white or red. It also represents Cha Ji Won [played by Moon Chae Won]’s image, who has to learn to accept a new world after breaking down the barriers inside herself.”

 

Yoo Jung Hee thanked viewers for supporting the drama and said, “The show is created through the hard work and passion of many people. I’m grateful that fans have felt our sincere intentions. I hope that it can become a drama in which people wonder what happens to the lead characters after it’s over. I want them to think once in a while, ‘I wonder how they’re living now?'”

tvN’s drama “Flower of Evil” has released a new behind-the-scenes video that shows the great teamwork between lead actors Lee Joon Gi and Moon Chae Won!

 

In the beginning of the clip, Lee Joon Gi and Moon Chae Won work with actor Kim Ki Moo to create a thrilling scene. First, Lee Joon Gi films with Kim Ki Moo alone. Kim Ki Moo lights up a piece of a paper, but he flinches in shock when flames suddenly appear before his eyes. Lee Joon Gi can’t help but burst into laughter, and Kim Ki Moo admits he got really scared.

Next, Moon Chae Won joins the two actors, and they work together to create an unforgettable action scene. Lee Joon Gi darts into the room to save Moon Chae Won, and Kim Ki Moo falls flat onto the ground. Once the cameras are off, Lee Joon Gi quickly helps Kim Ki Moo but laughs at the position he’s in. Lee Joon Gi comments, “I think he’s dead,” and Kim Ki Moo retorts, “I landed right where I was supposed to.”

 

Lee Joon Gi and Moon Chae Won team up with Choi Young Joon in another clip. Lee Joon Gi’s and Choi Young Joon’s characters may not be on good terms in the drama, but the two actors are actually close, and Lee Joon Gi even embraces Choi Young Joon tightly.

 

They film a scene where Lee Joon Gi and Moon Chae Won come out of the building hand-in-hand. However, they continuously make bloopers due to various reasons. In one outtake, Moon Chae Won abruptly turns around, causing Lee Joon Gi to lose his grip on her and stumble. He breaks into a little jig to make the accident look more natural.

Moon Chae Won and Lee Joon Gi continue to film together, and they discuss different ways to portray each scene.

 

He does his best to make her comfortable and knows how to make her relax when she gets flustered by her mistakes.

In one scene, the two actors have to film a sweet scene where she asks him to confirm his love for her. Before they start filming, they go over the lines with the director. Lee Joon Gi leans in for a kiss, which catches Moon Chae Won off guard, and she asks, “It’s a kiss?” The director clarifies he’s supposed to kiss the back of her hand, and Moon Chae Won teases Lee Joon Gi.

 

Lee Joon Gi quickly turns to the script and explains he misunderstood the directions. Moon Chae Won chuckles at him and the two actors joke around about their interpretations of what the script was telling them to do. Lee Joon Gi laughs and says, “I’m very faithful to the directions, you know!”

if it was shown in a better time slot, I am sure it will be even more than 8%, but, at least  it is grabbing lots of headlines and excellent reviews  - FOE is undeniably a  great drama!

And JG portrayed this very complex and difficult character brilliantly!

@Tuiwgn, I never thought that I will be in for a surprise roller-coaster ride watching this drama. The story seems simple but in reality, it is not. And....I love the OST of the drama. The music is perfect. :blush:

“Flower Of Evil” Producer Talks About What To Keep An Eye On In Remaining Episodes

As tvN’s “Flower of Evil” races towards its conclusion, chief producer (CP) Yoon Sang Won dished on what viewers can expect from its final five episodes.

 

With its suspenseful plot and powerful acting by leads Lee Joon Gi and Moon Chae Won, the thriller drama has received both critical acclaim and a positive response from viewers. Additionally, Lee Joon Gi has been topping the list of most buzzworthy drama stars for multiple consecutive weeks due to his captivating performance as Do Hyun Soo.

 

Yoon Sang Won remarked, “I’m grateful that so many people have been tuning in and showing love for the drama even though it airs late at night.

 

To be honest, because we worked so hard on the drama, I do wish that even more people would tune in. But ratings aside, all of the interest and support we’ve received from viewers, as well as all the buzz about the drama, have really helped motivate the actors and the entire production staff.

 

It keeps us going, and I think it’s giving us the strength to continue to pursue excellence without becoming exhausted.”

The CP also revealed that no matter how gritty and intense the story gets, the cast and crew is still having a great time working together. “‘Flower of Evil’ is currently heading into its final act, and there are many emotional scenes [in the remaining episodes],” he said. “But the atmosphere on set is cheerful, and everyone is happily working together during filming.”

 

Yoon Sang Won went on to share his thoughts on what viewers should keep an eye out for as the drama winds to a close. “We’ve been breathlessly racing towards the end of the drama, and there are now only five episodes left,” said the producer. “I hope that you’ll keep an eye on how Do Hyun Soo’s emotions, which suddenly sprouted from his tears [in the previous episode], change in the future.”

 

“Additionally, Do Hyun Soo and Cha Ji Won will find themselves tested once again,” he continued, “and as their story unfolds, I’d like to say: it isn’t over until it’s over.”

 

Finally, Yoon Sang Won added, “Another point that I’d like to draw attention to is the relationship between Moo Jin and Hae Soo—and whether they’ll be able to wash the scars of the past away and come together again.”

 

The next episode of “Flower of Evil” will air on September 9 at 10:50 p.m. KST.

 

In the meantime, catch up on the latest episode of the drama below!

from casting to writer to director , the ost and of course the actors , everything about Flower of Evil has been done beyond expectations.

there are lots of theories out there about the plot, but I am just happy to go wherever the ride takes me.

 

I also  can’t believe there is only 5 more episodes to go, I am already starting to have withdrawal symptoms...:unsure:

 

I do hope We don’t have to wait for another two years for his next project- and hopefully he goes back to the big screen , if not a saguek would be nice:rolleyes:

 

@willenette, thank you for keeping this thread going with all the great posts of JG.
