Go Dok Mi is a painfully introverted writer who would rather spend all of her time at home alone rather than in the company of other people. Having spent years perfecting how to best avoid social situations, her only real connection to the outside is her crush in the adjacent building, whom she regularly spies on with a pair of binoculars (while a different neighbor also watches her from afar). But after chatty game designer Enrique Geum catches Dok Mi in the act, she's pushed little by little out of her comfort zone and into the real world.
Flower Boy Next Door continues the trend of Flower Boy series trend of being funny, introspective and realistic.
Like its two predecessors, the show creates complex characters who stay consistent, and place them in situations we can all relate too. Their decisions, fears and growth are all based on values we've been shown, and it makes it easy to stand behind them.
And there's an amazing family and friendship dynamic created between everyone. Which makes this all the more fun to watch.
So, this drama is one I was really looking forward to. It didn't fail, but it definitely didn't bring on the feels like Shut Up Flower Boy Band did. However, Yun Si Yun MADE this drama. His character and his portrayal of the character brought the drama to life and gave it a freshness the rest of the characters lacked. Go Gyeong Pyo's character had a bit of this as well, but in general most of the characters had a nice richness in the beginning, become lack luster in the middle and then finally showed some spunk towards the end. This is mostly due to the script, but some of the acting is to blame, as well. In general, I give it a good rating. I would not watch again, but I'm glad I watched it once.
