Kim Ji-hoon joins tvN’s Flower Boy Next Door



Woohoo! So many things about this news make me happy: Kim Ji-hoon is returning to dramaland post-army service (and for real this time, not like that weekend show he was cast in, then wasn’t). He’ll be taking up a lead role in tvN’s Flower Boy Next Door, the third drama in the cable station’s “Oh Boy” series of Flower Boy programming (following Flower Boy Ramyun Shop and Shut Up: Flower Boy Band), which has already cast Park Shin-hye and Yoon Shi-yoon as the main leads.


The 16-episode romantic comedy reportedly takes a humorous and upbeat approach with today’s culture of sneaking peeks at our neighbors. Um. Okay, that sounds wrong. I suppose it means more in the sense of google-stalking and being a nosy neighbor, although I do wonder how the show’s going to keep Park Shin-hye’s character from being a creepy stalker girl with the way she keeps sneaking looks at her hot neighbor (the role Kim Ji-hoon will play). I’m not worried they won’t be able to; I’m just hoping for the best. It’s a younger man, Yoon Shi-yoon, who catches her at the peeping and presumably lots of cuteness will ensue between them.

As the object of our heroine’s interest, Kim Ji-hoon portrays a rather weak rookie webtoon artist. Heh. He’s described as being attractive despite his difficult, stubborn, and rude personality. With constantly tangled hair, a wardrobe consisting of tracksuits, and a coarse mouth, he’s reminding me an awful lot of Lee Seon-kyun’s character in Petty Romance, the adult comic artist who was poor at storytelling. Not a bad association, in my book.

It’s not a character type I’ve seen from Kim Ji-hoon yet, but I have plenty of faith he’ll be able to do it. He does grumpy hotties so well (see: Wish Upon a Star), and can do a pretty great droll/deadpan delivery. He’s also no stranger to tvN, which was the home of his cable sci-fi-mystery-sageuk Joseon X-Files, one of my favorite K-dramas ever.

(Urg, apparently there’s yet another nonsensical shortened word that’s been coined to refer to his type: the ung-mae-nam, aka the bumbling yet attractive flower boy. I’m hoping that’s a term that doesn’t catch on; I’ve just barely come to terms with cha-do-nam and bol-mae-nam. Not everything needs its own label!)

Can’t wait! Flower Boy Next Door kicks off on January 7, 2013.

TvN to Launch the Third Installment of Their Flower Boy Drama Series



Great news for fans of “Flower Boy Ramyun Shop” and “Shut Up Flower Boy Band”, the third installment of the Flower Boy series is on its way. tvN announced their plans for “The Flower Boy Next Door.”

Not much has been revealed about the drama except what can be assumed from the title. In a time when people hardly even know who their neighbors are, one girl discovers that a flower boy moves in next door.

A journalist from “Newsen” revealed, “We know that casting is in process. There are some strong ‘Flower Boy’ candidates.”

The official broadcast dates cannot be announced until after the casting is finalized, but tvN is planning for a January debut.

The “Flower Boy” series started in October of last year with “Flower Boy Ramyun Shop.” The drama was about a flower boy and a female college student who run a ramyun restaurant together. Jung Il Woo, Lee Jung Ah, and Lee Ki Woo make up the love triangle in this romantic comedy.

The series continued with “Shut Up Flower Boy Band” about a group of free spirited high school students who learn about friendship and love as they form a band. The cast of Lee Min Ki, Sung Joon, IFINITE’s L, Lee Hyun Jae, Yoo Min Kyu, Kim Min Suk, and Jo Bo Ah fill this energetic drama with eye candy.
