Me Too, Flower: Episodes 8-9 Thoughts

Why does this drama take so long to sub? It's been almost a week and I haven't seen 10 still. This review was meant to encapsulate that, but I got tired of waiting so here's 8-9 instead.

MBC better not shorten this, even by one episode. This is a gem of a show, right up there with The Princess' Man as one of the best dramas I've seen this year. It's genuine, complex, and so beautifully acted that even 16 episodes doesn't feel enough.

Me Too, Flower: Episodes 5-7 Thoughts

Me Too, Flower remains by far my favorite drama right now, as the acting is fantastic, the romance a perfect mesh of humor and heat, and the characters almost all beautifully written. However, it also puts me in two states of minds. Certain parts are so nicely constructed, original, and funny that I can't step away, but others are overloaded with cliche angst and noble idiocy, making me want to slap the screen. Episodes 5-7 really encompass that. The purse-losing storyline was boring, unnecessary, and such a filler piece in 5. But then 6 came along, and we got some awesome development in the relationship between our leads, with the perfect mix of sizzle, sadness, and progression.

Me Too, Flower: Episodes 1-4 Thoughts

Unexpectedly, Me Too, Flower has rapidly risen into my favorite airing drama. I can't say that I love any of the characters yet, but I'm growing fond of each of them and am definitely invested in their development and road to self-happiness. They're each so quirky yet complex, with lives that are at one moment hilarious and the next heart-breaking. Lee Jia and Yoon Shi Yoon are excellent in their roles, and I'm eager to see how the story proceeds.
