This drama was... well... good. I heard really positive reports about it, so I checked it out although it doesn't sound all that special. I mean, it's actually hard to put into words what the drama is really about because there wasn't all that much happening. It was all about the relationships between the characters. Between a reclusive billionaire who likes to pretend he's just a parking valet, a female police officer, a single mother who is co-founder and official head of a clothing brand, a gold digger, a psychiatrist and all the people involved around the two main places the story is set at: the police station and the clothing store. The characters loved and betrayed and laughed together and did some horrible things to each other. Everyone was somehow mentally messed up behind a happy facade.
The characters actually were the big strength of the drama. There was no character whose actions would have seemed implausible. Wrong maybe but not out of nowhere. The ultimate weakness of the drama ultimately was though that there really wasn't that much plot. As much as I loved the beginning, at some point it just got somewhat draggy.
Anyway, all in all it was pretty good and I think the actors did a good job portraying the characters.
A surprisingly well-done show, I'm A Flower! starts off with typical lead characters, and then promptly throws all cliches out the window by the end of episode 1. While it does take a while for the show to gain it's footing, once it does, I'm A Flower! shows depth. While the story starts to lose focus later on and drag (removing the one villain would have derailed the entire plot, which is never a good thing), the show is all heart.
Yun Si Yun proves that Baker King Tak Gu was not a one hit wonder for him, as he becomes Seo Jae Hui and all the troubles the character brings. And Lee Ji A finally has a role that is made for her, in what's her best acting yet. The problem is, other than those two, none of the others are really all that memorable or unique. But if you like the leads, you'll like the show.
The music is nice and never overdone. And while the directing is nothing to write home about, it's not so bad that it detracts from the viewing experience.
While I'm A Flower! isn't the best show out there, it is by far, not the worst. It's memorable and easy to watch, with the goods far outweighing the bads.
