Review – Me Too, Flower!
In which a show with a ridiculous name turns out to be ridiculously good. A female cop struggles with depression and anger issues. A high school drop out leads a double life as a penniless parking attendant and a wealthy handbag designer. Throw in a magnificently glamorous CEO, a wacky therapist, a young rookie cop whose cuter than a puppy, and a free-spirited step-sister and you’ve got this unusual show.
Lee Ji-Ah and Yoon Shi-Yoon both shine in this show. Lee Ji-Ah’s portrayal of a miserable, cynical, pissed off police woman on the verge of a breakdown was awesome. I loved her immediately and her grouchy, funny, blatant demeanor. Yoon Shi-Yoon did what he does best – a playful, cheerful, energetic enigma – except I thought his character was better in this show than in others. He’s such a weird little dude, but there is something oddly infectious about him. And his chemistry with Lee Ji-Ah was surprisingly on point. I may have to update my “Best Kiss” section, actually…
I enjoyed every episode of this little gem. I laughed, I felt genuinely moved by the characters, situations turned in unexpected but natural ways. It took the usual “secret rich boy” motif and turned it on its head, handing us a shocking new version of this old chiche. And… lest we forget… it also gave us the achingly, unnaturally gorgeous Han Go-Eun prancing around in amazing outfits.
In a lot of ways, it reminded me of Heart 2 Heart, in that it was just an unexpectedly down to earth story about mental health, families, and relationships. Loved that one, too.
Overall Rating – 9/10 – Curing Depression With A 2 Billion Won Kiss.
