Me Too, Flower! [Review]

16 Dec

stars-4

There are many things I loved about this drama. I loved the main couple and how they were together, I loved the quirky psychiatrist and his odd methods of getting Bong Sun to open up, and I loved Bong Sun’s relationship with her rookie partner and how she dealt with his crush on her. I just wish that the writers had given Bong Sun and Jae Hee a better plot to frame their romance. Just when we’d see how cute they were together, they’d be yanked apart by the over-the-top machinations of Hwa Young. I’ve seen that work in other dramas, but here it felt clunky.

The characters, for the most part, were fleshed out in three-dimensions, even though they sometimes acted a little cartoonish. Bong Sun, with her temper and depression; Jae Hee with his guilt toward Hwa Young and his secret phobia; Tae Hwa with his out-of-the-box psychiatry and his own painful past; Kim Dal with her material girl pretensions with an eventual conscience; even Maru with his crush on Bong Sun. All of them were a little more than you expected, which is why I was so disappointed in Hwa Young. I think they tried to make her more, but she ended up pretty much a one-dimensional evil antagonist, and that was so frustrating when the character deserved better.

This is very rewatchable, which is what I base my ratings on, I just had to knock it down a star because it didn’t live up to its full potential.

Synopsis

(via Dramafever)

Me Too, Flower is a delightful, fresh romantic comedy about the power of love to defeat cynicism and boredom. Bong Sun (Lee Ji Ah of ATHENA) goes through the paces of her job as a police officer, but her heart clearly isn’t in it. Frustrated at being passed over for a promotion, she has a very public breakdown and ends up being struck by a motorcycle driven by the handsome young Jae Hee (Yoon Si Yoon of Baker King Kim Tak Goo). Jae Hee is a straight-talking low-level employee at a posh clothing store, and even though she hates him at first, Bong Sun soon comes to see that there’s a lot more to this guy than meets the eye. Co-starring Lee Gi Kwang as a new recruit shadowing Bong Soo, Me Too, Flower is a brisk and lovable drama.

    I heart this show so much. I heart it to pieces. It turned me into a diehard Yoon Shi Yoon fan.

      Yep, me too, on the Yoon Si Yoon love. I really loved this couple when they were together, and that’s the stuff I’ll watch over and over. Unfortunately, they felt the need keep them separated for more of the show than I thought necessary 😦

        Well, that’s true. I could have just watched them be together for about 8 more hours. I wish we’d gotten that last episode.

        Oh yeah, I forgot we were short an episode. I think that would have helped a *lot*.
